Durham, North Carolina Travel Agent

Family & Romance Caribbean Travel Specialist

I love to sail at Beaches Turks & Caicos
I love to sail at Beaches Turks & Caicos


In 1986,I realized a dream: by combining my passion for travel with my business
background, I opened a travel agency!  My personal love of the sea naturally dictated my primary focus areas: the Caribbean Islands, Florida, and cruising everywhere and anywhere in the World!

During the past several years, I have been fortunate enough to be on many
Pre-Inaugural sailings of Cruise ships so that I can better advise my clients about the nuances of these new ships before they even begin to sail. I have personally cruised over 30 times.  Opening the agency was my original dream, now I find great joy in fulfilling the travel dreams of other! !


I have been fortunate to be a part of the travel industry for many years now and I cannot say enough about the experiences I have had or the wonderful clients with whom I have had the opportunity to build relationships. I travel extensively and I want to open the
doors of the World to those who are looking to explore it. My focus is on luxury travel such as honeymoons, top resorts, cruises, destination weddings, and unique adventures. Luxury does not have to mean huge expenses, but more the quality of your experience and the value you receive for the money. I enjoy getting to know my clients so each vacation I plan for them builds on their personal interests while working with their budgets.

I am also a family travel expert. I have two sons, the oldest one now in college, who has
traveled with me since I could put them on a plane. Our family’s favorite destinations
are Beaches Resorts in Turks and Caicos and Negril, Jamaica; Caribbean cruises,
Universal Orlando, and Walt Disney World.

As a businessperson, in an addition to a travel specialist, I understand the  special
demands of business travel, and work with a number of corporate accounts to
facilitate their complex travel needs. Along with managing the business aspects
of the agency and the wealth of expertise of my team.. I also enjoy and am very
involved in social media and maintains the agency's Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn,
Pinterest and other pages.

The best trip of our lives since our honeymoon!

Reviewed By Team Harris - Knightdale, NC | Traveled to Ocho Rios ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Sarah worked really hard to help plan my husband and my 10-year wedding anniversary trip to Sandals Ochi in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. She stayed within our initial budget and gave us several options to choose from when deciding which vacation package to purchase. She was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to our questions. She truly helped make our 10-year wedding anniversary very special! My husband and I have been talking about it every day since we got back from Jamaica!!! It was a pleasure to work with Sarah. I highly recommend her services to anyone! You will NOT be disappointed!!!

No hassles. Excellent trip!

Reviewed By Alex - Durham | Traveled to Ocho Rios ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Sarah was excellent. Her knowledge of vacations in the Caribbean is extensive and she helped us find the perfect resort. After giving her a better idea of what we were looking for, she took control and planned the entire trip. I would highly recommend her if you want the convenience of working with a high quality travel agent!!

Sarah knew what we wanted before we did!

Reviewed By Carli - Durham, NC | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
This was our first trip together out of the US and I hadn't traveled abroad in a while. Sarah was excellent--she listened to us, did her best (and succeeded!) to make sure special needs in terms of what we were looking for in budget, destination, and accommodations were met. Since we didn't know any of the places we were considering to go to, it was very important for us to have a guide who knew more than prices and booking--Sarah put a lot of emphasis into what atmosphere we wanted for our belated honeymoon, knew what questions to ask, and did a fantastic job getting us to where we wanted to go very close to our budget.

Sarah was also very available for questions and concerns, she took the extra time to investigate and suggest different things to bring with us, to look out for, and suggested ways in which we could enjoy ourselves while staying on budget once we got to our destination.

I can easily say that our trip would not have been possible without Sarah's knowledge and hel
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Spring Break Trip!

Reviewed By Duke Student - Durham, NC | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Sarah was very easy to work with and completely dedicated herself to our group's trip, which ended up being a tricky situation from what I have gathered. She managed to book a group of over 40 people and sufficiently give us information. She was incredible and gave us a great spring break!

The only criticism I have is that the emails Sarah sent tended to be a bit wordy--I am sure this is a product of her wanting to go above and beyond, but people often do not have time to read everything.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sarah Waxler responded:
Thanks so much! You were an awesome group leader! I will work on my wordiness, you're right - I think with that many people who I don't meet, I tend to write like I talk, next time I'll just talk!
