Bastrop, Texas Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion, LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Professional Travel Planner - 20+ Years Experience

I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years and have extensive knowledge in planning memorable vacations that fit your travel style. Every customer is different, and that's what makes being a professional travel planner fun and challenging every day.

My specialty lies in planning Honeymoons or romantic vacations, family and friends, group vacations.  Mainly in Italy, South Africa, Hawaiian Islands, Mexico, and the Caribbean (I used to live on Maui).  Cruises (and European River Cruises) are also very popular.  Italy is a destination I do a lot of luxury specialized custom vacations with private guides and drivers, making for unique and unforgettable trips of a lifetime.  Because of my rounded and extensive knowledge in the travel business, I certainly am not limited to these these destinations.

Whether you wish to book a travel package, cruise, tour, or perhaps an independent extensive European vacation, I can arrange any of these options for you.

Most travel packages, cruises, and tours I can book for you don’t come with any agency fees. Since independent vacations involve extensive itinerary planning and putting together all the details separately, I will charge a nominal planning fee for these types of trips.

Before starting my own company in 1996, my training included working in a corporate travel agency and their group department. My experience in planning corporate retreats, incentive group trips, and meetings enables me to work with all sizes of travel groups, from 2 people to 200 people or more.

So, if your travel involves a corporate incentive group, multi-generation families, etc., all things are possible. I can coordinate airfare for people flying in from different cities without any problems.

Please note that unless you have been referred/introduced to me by another client, I only work with new customers that are local in my area of Bastrop, Smithville, Cedar Creek, Elgin, Austin and surrounding areas.  When working with new clients for the first time, I have an upfront good faith deposit of $75 to $125, depending on the complexity of the trip. This allows me to start research and prepare price quotes once I have spoken to you and determined your specific travel needs. Because I am a professional,  full-time travel planner, I have found this to be the only way I can separate the sincere potential clients from people that are just price shoppers.  This ensures that my time is well spent, working on trips for sincere clients. The lack of focus would cheat real customers out of my best service.

The good faith deposit is applied towards the costs of your trip. If I absolutely cannot find what you are looking for, I will refund your deposit. But if I have done the work and put together your trip proposals and suggested hotels, etc., and you decide not to go, or to book it elsewhere (instead of giving me the opportunity to competitive match a price if you found it lower elsewhere), then the agency retains the good faith deposit as reimbursement for the time spent doing the research that helped you get to that point of making a decision.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you today and, perhaps, for many years to come!

What my clients are saying...

...I have always been apprehensive about taking a cruise and told people that I had no interest in ever taking one. When we finally decided to take a family cruise for our daughter's 30th birthday I had no idea what to expect but Tracey took away all of the nervousness and made it all so easy!  Amy

...one of the best travel agents in the industry.  Quick to respond, resourceful and creative in plans.  Victoria V.

...absolute professional and provides an ultimate level of service each and every time.  She personalizes each travel to fit your needs.  Sharon G.

...it was the first time we had used a travel agent and will definitely go back to her for our future trips.  Our trip to Nashville

Tracey has been scheduling travel for us for several years now. She is great at giving us options when we book out travel.

Most of the time the air travel goes off without a hitch, but when issues do pop up, Tracey has always been there to help us find alternatives to get to our destination.

Highly recommend you use Tracey for your travel needs.

Thank you Bruce! It's a pleasure working with you and your team! It's hard being on the road a lot, and I hate it when you have delays or cancellations that prevent you from getting back home as planned. I'm so glad that I am able to help on those occasions when it's needed!

Great Planning and Great Follow Through

Reviewed By LeeTXJD - | Traveled to
Tracey is always invaluable when we plan our vacations. She is an absolute life saver (or vacation saver) when the best plans go awry. The best example is when our flight to Hawaii was canceled (yes, you read that right, the airline camceled the flight). We called Tracey and she had us placed on the next available flight (on another airline - she had to fight to get the first carrier to honor their obligations). So, you get great up front planning and then someone who cares enough to help when you need it most.

Reviewed By Sharon E - Elgin, Tx | Traveled to
Being my first experience using a travel agent I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew where I wanted to go but didn't want to do the planning. Tracey's extensive knowledge of Maui ( as well as the other islands) made decisions on lodging, eating, activities, security and even what to wear made this vacation a snap to put together. She kept in close contact and answered any questions promptly. I would highly recommend Tracey. I already have my next destination in mind and she will be my go to agent for sure!

Reviewed By JM/DM - Austin, TX | Traveled to
I loved the beautiful scenery and how peaceful and quiet our resort was that Tracey recommended to us for our honeymoon. The room location was perfect, right in the middle of everything, which made it so convenient for us. The activities of this resort were included in our package, so we were able to choose whatever activities we wanted from those options at no additional charge. The food was delicious. The staff was happy, helpful and cheerful all the time! We hope to go back for a future anniversary! Thank you very much!

Over the top thoughtful planning!

Reviewed By Daniel A. - Austin, TX | Traveled to
The biggest trip Tracey put together for our family was a west coast drive. It was complicated because we wanted to see as much as possible with a different stop almost every day. It included airfare and car rental with an itinerary including The Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, San Fransisco, Disneyworld, and many more. The planning was flawless and included activities, locations, and amenities I would have never thought of. We were able to travel a huge area with total confidence because Tracey had it all perfectly arranged. She even anticipated when we would be tired and scheduled rest days in beautiful peaceful settings.

Reviewed By Courtney - Texas | Traveled to
We came to Tracey almost 5 years ago needing help planning out a destination wedding in Mexico. She had brochures on all kinds of different all inclusive resorts for us to look at along with their wedding packages. After picking a resort we spent close to a year communicating with the resort about our wedding and Tracey pretty much took the role on as a partial wedding planner and if she wasn't there to help us we probably wouldn't have had a destination wedding. She booked most of our guests as well and make it so easy for everyone.

We've tapped into Tracey for trip planning assistance for 4 trips now. We rate her a 5-star plus on all 4 categories of knowledge, response, helpfulness, and overall rating. She works tirelessly and quickly to dig into the questions we have thrown at her and to maybe come up with a different and better alternative. She went above the norm to help me out one time with reclaiming trip insurance when I was unable to go on a prepaid trip at the last minute. She provided all the information for the claim and through e-mails, held my hand and guided me through the process. She has also set up international flights at best rates and times for other family members. Can't say enough good about Tracey!
