Turks and Caicos Travel Agent Specialist

One of the pleasures of being a travel agent is representing the Turks and Caicos Islands - an archipelago that lies in the Atlantic Ocean, made up of 40 coral isles. The British Overseas Territory sits southeast of the Bahamas. One of the popular islands is Providenciales, also commonly called Provo, home to the beautiful Grace Bay Beach. The beach has luxury resorts, scuba-diving sites, and restaurants. The 14-mile barrier on the island’s north shore is featured as is a magnificent underwater wall off the shore of Grand Turk Island.There's a good probability that any images of idyllic beaches you've used as desktop screensavers were taken in the Turks & Caicos Islands. Although this Caribbean island chain is a less-traveled area, it is home to some of the most breathtaking shores in the world, with sand so white it almost sparkles and water so clean and light blue that it seems you can see the ocean floor for miles. In contrast to other developed Caribbean islands, the great outdoors is prioritized in the Turks and Caicos Islands, so prepare to spend a lot of time in and around the picture-perfect waters. Snorkeling, scuba diving, boating, and sunbathing are the main pursuits here. Pack your swimwear and take a quick flight to this British territory to begin your holiday. Tropical island getaways simply don't get any nicer than a trip here.Major holiday months, particularly December through January and March through April, are the islands' busiest travel times (the islands are popular with Easter and spring break crowds). The islands are busier and more expensive during these months, but the weather is wonderful. However, many travelers believe that the spring season, which runs from February to April, is the finest time to visit the Turks and Caicos Isles because it offers the perfect balance of pleasant weather, affordable prices, and a wide selection of accommodations. To get the best rates, avoid the weekends surrounding holidays. One of the greatest events on the islands occurs every last weekend in May and is known as the Big South Regatta. On South Caicos, there is a customary yacht race with lots of activities scheduled for both competitors and spectators. Another significant yearly event is the Conch Festival, which takes place on Providenciales the last weekend in November every year. The Turks and Caicos Islands is the official name of the nation, however most people just refer to it as "Turks and Caicos" or "TCI." It is erroneous to refer to the group of islands as just "Turks" or "Caicos.” The main form of payment on the islands is the U.S. dollar, and English is widely spoken. There is no need for power adapters because the islands use 120v, 60Hz electricity. The Providenciales International Airport (PLS), where all planes land, is where travelers can board the Caicos Express or InterCaribbean for inter-island transit. Both have everyday flight options. The single cruise ship station on the islands, the Grand Turk Cruise Center near Grand Turk's southern tip, is where many guests come aboard cruise ships. Boat transport between islands is also an option. The islands lack buses and railroads, but you can get around using a cab or rental car. On Providenciales, Grand Turk, and North and Middle Caicos, taxis are available; they are often rather pricey. The majority of taxis are huge vans that passengers share while traveling the same route. Similar to Uber, Conch Cab is a well-known taxi service that can be ordered using an app. However ,it only serves Providenciales.If you drive yourself, keep in mind that driving is on the left, not right. The maximum speed limit is 40 mph on highways and 20 mph in villages.You’ll love the Turks and Caicos as much as I like sharing details about the island nation. Give me a call to contact me by email for all the details now. As your travel agent specialist, I will do everything in my power to ensure you have an unforgettable trip.

Fabulous

Reviewed By Cindy R - Atlanta, Georgia | Traveled to Miami ~ Florida ~ USA
I am big shopper and find my way to Miami every few months to visit the Design District and shops in SoBe. Over the past twenty years I have probably stayed in thirty hotels in Brickell and Miami Beach but always like to try my hand at a new property to switch things up. While my last travel advisor, Miss Ginger, retired, I was nervous to try someone new out. Let me just tell you, Matt is young and vibrant, eager to help cater to your every need. He chose the best flight times, hotel, and boat charters and kept in contact with me throughout the whole process. He definitely has a taste for luxury so keep that in mind when choosing to work with him (a plus for me but maybe not for a backpacker??).

Good Honesty

Reviewed By Curt F - Saranac, NY | Traveled to South Beach ~ Florida ~ USA
Matt is super nice and respectful. Very pleasant to work with but be prepared for his honesty. We were planning a trip to South Beach because we have not been since the 80's. After expressing that we wanted to stay on Ocean Drive, Matt simply told us that is "not a wise move". Well good thing we took his advice, because Ocean Drive is not the place it used to be! Miami Beach is still incredible and with his recommendations, you will have a great time. Best advice? Listen to his! Will use him again for our next trip.

If you are going to spend your hard earned money on a vacation, use a travel agent. Matt is a good choice if you want someone to book your trip with little stress. He will contact you as much or as little as you want which is definitely a plus compared to some other travel advisors who spam your inbox.

We found Matt to be patient with us as we were confused with the booking process. We were booking travel for 60 family members and had to split the payment up 3 ways. He is accommodating and respectful and never ignored our questions.

We stayed at Curtain Bluff in Antigua and it was just lovely. The weather was so nice and we felt like we got to know the staff on a personal level. The resort credit Matt gave us was put to great use as we spent an entire afternoon on a boat touring the island. Such a fun experience!

We haven't left to go on our cruise yet but we are already pleased with Matt's service. At first I attempted to book our Virgin Cruise through their direct website but felt as if it was too expensive for the time of year. We are traveling in May (low season) and they tried charging us thousands for just two of us. After doing some research we came across Travel Leaders and contacted a few agents. Matt's prices were significantly cheaper than we found elsewhere. Although we did not have to communicate a lot with Matt because we already had our trip planned, we are very happy with the amount of money we saved. Cannot wait to go on our voyage soon and we will be sure to post a review after to share our experience!

Perfect Trip

Reviewed By The Wilsons - Charleston, South Carolina | Traveled to Providenciales ~ Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
My wife and I are avid travelers and have been to almost all the Caribbean islands. We own timeshares in Tortola and the Bahamas but recently sold them because we were not getting much use of them during Covid. Instead of purchasing another timeshare, we decided to explore the rest of the Caribbean that we have not seen yet. After contacting Matt, he gave us a list of must see islands in the tropics. Turks and Caicos was number one so we decided to plan a trip there. The beach at Grace Bay is incredible, and the villa Matt booked for us was perfectly located and central to local dive bars and restaurants. We are already working with him for our trip to Aruba, one of the last islands we have yet to visit. Instead of giving input, we are letting Matt handle the whole thing for us. Excited for what he has in store!

On Par Service

Reviewed By Diane P - San Diego, California | Traveled to Seychelles ~ Africa
My husband and I recently retired and wanted to go on a trip to celebrate. Due to all the pandemic restrictions we were concerned with traveling abroad. Matt advised us to not put our dreams of going on an African tour on hold. He took care of our every need and booked us a Private Jet tour via Abercrombie and Kent. We loved every minute of it and it was truly luxurious. Pandemic or not, we felt as if everything was normal. Safety was taken seriously but there were only two other couples on the trip with us so no risk of exposure. I recommend this type of travel if you have the time to take a month out of your life to see the world and want to make friends that will last a lifetime! Matt was a true pleasure to work with and understands the ins and outs of luxury travel.

Trip to Miami

Reviewed By Russ L - Tampa, Florida | Traveled to South Beach ~ Florida ~ USA
Matt booked our hotel in South Beach. We went to the Faena for a couples trip and loved every minute of our little vacation. We come from Tampa so it was nice to have the night life scene dialed-up a bit and even though we were not truly there for the beach, the property was great in terms of the location. I really enjoyed his personal touches like adding a fruit platter to our room so we could enjoy it upon arrival. He also made sure to get us an upgraded table at LIV which he coordinated all on his own. Matt's connection to the Miami social scene is great because he is able to recommend some great places. I think if you are able to spend a tad bit more than the average traveler, Matt is the way to go.

VIP Agent

Reviewed By Ricardo V - Fort Lauderdale, Florida | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I've traveled all over the world using VIP agents to book every time. Most of the time the agents are dealing with many other clients and do not spend a lot of time curating my individual trip. Usually they only are helpful up to the point of booking and leave me high and dry after that. I don't know if Matt has excellent time management skills or only takes on a certain amount of clients at a time, but he is so responsive and puts in such a great deal of work. His attention to detail is phenomenal and he truly listens to what you have to say. My expectation for high class service, fine dining, and nice hotels was exceeded. Thanks Matt!

Super Organized and Beyond Helpful

Reviewed By Susan H - Blacksburg, Virginia | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
SO HELPFUL!!!! We were so worried traveling outside the country during the Coronavirus but needed to get away from everything. Matt gave us alternatives to international travel but also was very informative about the protocols leaving the country. We decided to bite the bullet and go to Jamaica once we saw cases level out. He was so kind in providing us information on the documents we needed to enter Jamaica and return home as well as setting up PCR tests before departure from the island. My husband said that he felt that it went so smooth you forgot you were in a pandemic. We were so impressed with Matt and will continue to use him especially if COVID is still around!
