Carla Nooyen

Sun Prairie, Wisconsin Travel Agent

Hawaiian Islands Specialist

Aloha, I have been in the travel business since 1995, and with Travel Leaders since 1996.
There is nothing more satisfying to talk with clients who have just returned from a trip and hearing what a wonderful time they have had and the lifelong memories they made.

It is my personal goal to treat each client with the same customer service and satisfaction that I want to be treated as a customer. Because of this, all my clients are either repeat or referral clients. I believe in responding promptly and value all my clients.
One of Travel Leaders' definition of customer service is "Anticipating client needs before they tell you". And our main goal at Travel Leaders is to "Exceed our customers expectations".

I am a Hawaiian Specialist and have been to 5 out of the 6 islands.

I am also a Accredited Cruise Counsellor (ACC) by Cruise Lines International Association. I have sailed on Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian, Celebrity to Alaska, Eastern and Western Caribbean Islands and the Mexican Riviera.

I am a Certified Travel Specialist through Travel Leaders.

I have been to many of the Mexican destinations and also many of the Caribbean Islands, including Cozumel, Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Ixtapa
St Lucia, Aruba, St Thomas and the British Virgin Islands, Barbados, Antiqua, etc.

I have been to Europe many times, going to be taking my first Europe River Cruise on the Danube in October.
And of course many US destinations.

It would be my pleasure to help you with your Dream Vacation.

Carla provided several options on pricing. She work with me on dates and times. When I had questions on the cancellation policy she helped me understand. I had trouble with booking my shuttle back, extremely helpful getting me back.

She was so helpful and did additional research on tickets for plays. She made our trip smooth.

It was the best time for my two daughters and myself. I'll use her again and have told several people how easy it was with her help.

Three families celebrate in the Caribbean...

Reviewed By Double D - Madison, WI & Bar Harbor, ME | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
We've used Carla's services for over 20 years now. This year our family reached several benchmarks. While all our previous trips involved just two persons, this time we decided to include the entire family of ten. We had a significant birthday to mark, a high school graduation and a move back to the home state, returning after 14 years. Because our group included a wide age range--youngsters, teens, young adult, mid-age adults and much older adults, we turned to Carla to help find a place that had something for everyone and that was direct travel-wise. As usual she met our goal to a tee. We leave in March so the actual location is new, but we're confident it will be a great experience.

Carla is very quick to respond, always with numerous options and a very helpful and pleasant manner. She is a master at coordinating all the details and we have yet to experience any conflicts or confusion. Having benefited from her know-how at least a dozen times, Carla is always our go-to agent.

Decided to change travel companies

Reviewed By Not too Happy - Wisconsin | Traveled to Mexicali ~ Mexico ~ Mexico
I didnt feel as though my requests were listened to. I asked for certain dates, certain flights out of certain locations and had my top three wish lists items. Very rarely were they taken into account. I continually had to remind her of the specifics that I requested... such flights out of a certain airport, types of beach, which side of sea/ocean.
Carla Nooyen responded:
Thank you taking the time to let us know your thoughts. I understand your frustration as you were trying to avoid layovers at specific airports especially since your original airport (Lacrosse) does not have a lot of connecting airports to choose from. I was happy to work with you and glad that we were able to find a desirable destination, Puerto Vallarta, for you to enjoy your trip. Thank you

25th Wedding Anniversary to Never be Forgotten

Reviewed By Honey Mooners - Marshall, WI | Traveled to Riviera Nayarit ~ Mexico ~ Mexico
Carla is a very professional yet have fun kinda gal and easy to work with. We wanted to go somewhere warm for our 25th Wedding Anniversary, and asked for her advice on some all inclusive trips and keeping the budget low.
We went to the Riviera Nayarit area and just loved our spacious room with balcony and Jacuzzi. We had so much fun walking the beach to the flee market in Bucerias, and taking the bus to Puerto Vallarta River Walk. We also took in a cruise that took us to a remote place for a dinner show, which was just awesome to say the least with our guides who were just a hoot. Seeing the whales and dolphins from our balcony was incredible, it was truly a trip that we'll never forget. With all of our sight seeing and taking in the culture, we finally spent the last day just pool side enjoying everything we've done.
Carla will definitely be the person we reach out to the next time we plan a big vacation. In fact will be talking with her soon about a group going in 2017

Trip of our Lives

Reviewed By Frank - Madison, WI | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
My wife and I took a spectacular trip to Hawai'i with some friends. The accommodations selected for us was top notch and all the various transportation arrangements put the ease back into traveling. To top it off Carla had an immense knowledge of places to see and better yet those to avoid. It really was nice to avoid the tourist traps. Every step of the way we had a great plan and many options according to the weather. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Carla

Making travel easy

Reviewed By Sun Prairie Traveler - Sun Prairie WI | Traveled to Palm Springs ~ California ~ USA
I have been working with Carla for over 6 years. She was recommended to me by friends and I can see why. In turn, I have recommended Carla to other friends and they have been very happy with her services as well.
Carla is easy to work with, very professional and always provides multiple options for flights. She does the little things like always remembering trip specific information like preferred room numbers at a hotel and the need for travel insurance without me having to remind her. In addition, she always touches base right before the trip and then follows up after we have returned to ensure that everything went as planned. I feel confident leaving the travel details in Carla’s capable hands. She is a pleasure to work with.

Relaxing time

Reviewed By Schweppe - DeForest, WI | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Carla is so pleasant to work with. After getting information about our trip, Carla gave us several options for transportation as well as insurance data.

We booked out flights over a month in advance, and then about a week before our departure, Carla verified that the flights were still scheduled and verified our seat assignments.

It is so nice to have someone looking out for your best interests.

I would recommend Carla to anyone traveling locally or abroad.
