Amy Eben

Sioux Center, Iowa Travel Agent

Manager and Leisure Travel Specialist

I became a travel agent directly out of college and had fully planned on it being a "stepping stone" job to something different in the future. I fell in love with the industry and the people at The Travel Advantage in Sioux Center and have now been here for over 15years. I've sailed with multiple cruise lines including Carnival and Royal Caribbean, traveled to the sandy beaches of Cancun and visited domestic destinations such as San Francisco, Washington DC, Las Vegas, Colorado Springs, Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Memphis, New Orleans, and Dallas. And my bucket list is long when it comes to other great locations! I now manage the office and have cut back on the amount of traveling planning in my day, but I still enjoy piecing together getaways and researching new destinations. Whether dealing with corporate accounts, leisure clients, or the office team, building relationships is the favorite part of my position. I guess you can say "I know what I want to be when I grow up" and I'm enjoying it right now. Call, email, or stop in Sioux Center at The Travel Advantage today!

She was very patient with me and all of my questions and was so very helpful, especially when we needed to change some of the plans/travelers.She was willing to check us in for our flights on the weekend, so that we did not need to worry about it while relaxing by the pool... she is amazing!!!

The first of many oversees vacations.

Reviewed By EJ - Sacramento, Ca | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
I have worked with Amy for many years now and she always helps me organize my travel in a very efficient manner. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends in need. With all the convenient sites for travel out there I still find it beneficial to book many of my trips with Amy, especially out of US travel. Her knowledge helped my wife and I have a fantastic honeymoon.
Thank you!!!

Awesome Trip!!

Reviewed By Matt - Sioux City, IA | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I can't say enough good things about Amy and my experience working with her on the trip I recently took. She priced several different destinations and resorts, and I felt like I had several quality places to choose from. Once a decision was made, she quickly provided available dates and flight options to choose from. Amy made this process seem easy and stress-free.

Amy also arranged transportation from the airport to the resort, and back again. It was so nice to not have to worry about this when traveling. Amy also provided us with flight schedules that allowed plenty of time to make connecting flights and to navigate through security and customs.

I stayed at the Hyatt Zilara in Cancun. I would recommend this resort to anybody who travels to Mexico! It is a little on the pricey side, but I felt it was well worth the money spent. The resort is beautiful, excellent food, and friendly/helpful staff. The view from my room was outstanding, and I would definitely go back!

Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to work with you and I'm so glad you got the relaxation you so deserved at the Hyatt Zilara!
