Dorene Lerner

Newburgh, New York Travel Agent

CDT Travel, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Hawaii, Australia & New Zealand Travel Advisor

I take pleasure in arranging memorable vacations for singles, couples and families. Are you planning a special event, like a destination wedding, honeymoon, family vacation?

Or do you simply want to choose a lifetime experience from your bucket list? In either case, I'm here to provide the best possible choices to make your vacation go smoothly.

My first-hand knowledge of the Middle East allows me to offer experiences that you cannot find by booking online on your own. I attended college for a semester in Israel and traveled to Egypt. The trip allowed me to see many sides of the country, exploring archaeological sites and historical areas, meeting dignitaries, and sampling regional foods.

The South Pacific is another of my specialties. I've been to Hawaii 5 times, and I am well-traveled in Australia and New Zealand. My clients have hiked Ayers Rock, taken a camel ride in the Outback, snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef, flown up to the glaciers in a helicopter, sailed the fjords, and much more.

I've sent couples and honeymooners to Tahiti and Fiji and arranged exotic adventures such as river rafting, kayaking, and dining with locals. My expertise in this part of the world allows me to customize vacations according to my clients' wishes.

Our agency has connections with tour operators, hotel representatives, and cruise representatives. These services make for an extra special vacation experience that is not offered through other agencies.

"My wife and I have been using CDT Travel and agent Dorene Lerner for a number of years. We travel extensively and have always received excellent advice and service.

"CDT Travel not only books your trip but they keep and eye on the travel market. And, often times if the cost goes down they get you the lower price. They also keep an eye on the airlines and if there are changes in flights or times they confer with the client and get the appropriate adjustments made."

A travel professional without equal

Reviewed By Joel - Bullville, NY | Traveled to
Doreen has helped up plan a number of trips, that included odysseys to China, India, and Patagonia. Her knowledge of all of the regions to which we traveled is expansive in great detail that made the trip run flawlessly. She has always returned our calls promptly with an appropriate response to our questions. Patience is one of her virtues--on occasion we made numerous changes to our plans and Dorene cheerfully accommodated all of them them. She always was pleasant and energetic . Any traveler would have a wonderful experience working with Dorene.

Excellent in helping to plan your trip

Reviewed By Hank - Orange County, NY | Traveled to
I have used Dorene as my travel agent for many years. She is always looking out for me. She will check for reduced rate on book trips and then get me the reduced rate. She will advise me on upgrades that I can take. She will help advise me on flights if I need to fly. She will give you feedback on other clients review on up coming trips (good or bad) you are going to take. She booked all my dinner and entertainment on the Quantum of The Seas for my April cruise. This was a big help to me. She is a terrific travel agent and we are very lucky to have her.

Dorene's expertise has spared us the pitfalls of planning a cruise

Reviewed By Excellent - New York, NY | Traveled to
Dorene has done an outstanding job in getting our cruises on track. She has gotton us on board credit that otherwise we would not have received from the cruise line. Her expertise in the field of travel shows whenever we plan a cruise. Also, her personality makes you feel comfortable and you know you have met someone with integrity and can trust. Dorene has demonstrated that she has our best interest in mind and notifies us if there are discounts available for our booked cruise or a future cruise we may be interested in. In the past she was able to get us a lower rate then originally stated.

Dorene goes above and beyond!

Reviewed By Ruthie - Middletown, New York | Traveled to
Dorene has planned many trips for me which is not an easy task. I travel with people who have very inflexible schedules but Dorene always comes through with a fabulously planned trip! She is very knowledgeable and has been to many destinations herself so she can offer excellent suggestions on where to go and where to not go. If I'm on a budget Dorene will ferret out the best value for me as well! There was a couple times when we had an issue with the hotel and Dorene was right on it and recovered compensation for us. This goes to show that Dorene does not only plan a good trip but she also looks out for you from start to finish!

Sat back and let Dorene do all the work!!

Reviewed By juanschmidt - Washingtonville, NY | Traveled to
I have had the pleasure of knowing Dorene for @ 25 years and she has ALWAYS maintained a high standard of professionalism. Whether I propose an idea or come to her with some info, Dorene takes it from there, putting together several ideas for me to consider. Her suggestions are spot on and she will often include things I wouldn't have thought about. She's knowledgeable through her own travel experience which I find helpful. Give her a call, then, 'sit back and let Dorene do all the work!!' You WON'T be disappointed.
