Corporate Travel Specialist

I work for you not the airlines! When I started Joan’s Travel Partners in 1986, I was determined not to lose sight to three important standards I set from the first day. One was that I would never run a “normal” travel agency. You know the type, a one-size fits all bunch of order takers. I know your time is money. That is why I charge only a $15 service fee. There are no hidden fees, no increased costs for calling after hours or on weekends. I also have discounts on all major car rental companies and hotel chains worldwide. That devotion to your bottom line has fared well during the past decades as the travel business underwent incredible changes. My clients knew that they could get something no internet site no matter how flashy could provide, that is concern and personal attention and money saving techniques. problems or other issues they love to cook up!

I am always there for you

By the ocean -always

The second standard was to follow my clients throughout their trip. No, I do not book myself in the seat next to you – but I do monitor your progress whether you are going 100 or 10,000 miles away. In these days of frazzled nerves, airline cancellations, strikes and mergers clients often need an experienced agent to answer their call when stranded in some far away airport. There is one thing you will not see as you watch television news reports of millions of passengers stranded in airports, some for days due to the latest airlines mess. That is the face of even one of my clients. Why? Because every morning I scan my records, rebook those people whose flights have been cancelled and run them a new ticket. They go directly to their new fligh

The best corporate agent I know!

Reviewed By Siobhan H - Washington | Traveled to California ~ USA
Joan has given the best of corporate travel to my company for almost thirty years. She has 24/7 service with experienced agents, always gets the best price and is there when we need her most.

Her service fee of a mere $15 is the lowest I know of!

She is a gem who has made our travel a breeze
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
