Ulrike Ocasio

Branchburg, New Jersey Travel Agent

Clark Travel, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Customized & All-Inclusive River Cruise Expert

In April 2005, I joined Clark Travel after 27 years in the insurance industry. One of my nicknames when I worked in insurance was "Cruise Queen." Each time I planned a vacation it was cruise to somewhere: the Caribbean, Alaska, and Europe.

My first trip after joining the agency was a river cruise. Traveling on the river is a relaxing way to see the sights.

You may ask why I am qualified to help you plan your trip. My response would be that my experiences while traveling in Europe, the United States, and the Caribbean have given me first-hand knowledge that I can relate back to my clients.

I can assist you in all your travel to create happy travel memories for years to come. My planning can include booking airfare, hotels, transfers, private tours or sightseeing, even restaurant suggestions.

On our 3rd trip to Alaska, I told my husband we did not have to do any tours except for one—a trip to Neets Bay to see the bears! We took a float plane and then hiked in to the fish ladders where the salmon and bear were.

I will always remember the guide humorously telling us if the bears approach us, you kick the person standing next to you in the knee so you can run faster than them! To this day, my husband and still talk about this amazing experience we had seeing the bears and how picky the bears were about the salmon they ate and not us gawking tourists.

This is the kind of memory I want to help create for you.

I can customize a trip for almost any preferences. For instance, 3 years ago a new client walked into our office and state he wanted to go to Italy. Great, I thought, Italy, no problem. In my mind, I was already thinking about hotels and sightseeing I could suggest when the client informed me that he does not fly.

Within 48 hours I created an itinerary that included 2 transatlantic sailings, transfer, hotels, and sightseeing. This year he celebrated his 3rd trip to Italy—all with no flights!

Reviewed By Carvo - United States | Traveled to
Right on top of things, Ulrike helped us by suggesting cost savings options on trip insurance plans. She also gave us advice on how to keep our group together for dinner seating and recommended options on how to get to the departure port. She always responded quickly to our questions and gave us great service. We have worked with her on at least three trips Great travel agent.

4th trip and will plan more

Reviewed By Repeat client - New Jersey | Traveled to
I met Ulrike through my son and daughter in law. She helped them plan their honeymoon to Hawaii which was our wedding gift to them. They said it was fabulous so the following year my husband and I had Ulrike help us to go to Hawaii. Since then she has helped us with a Europen cruise and now Alaska. She is very knowledgeable and if she doesn't know will research and get answers for you. Returns all phone calls and emails promptly and works hard to stay within your budget. We have had wonderful vacations and she took care of an issue upon our return last year. I highly recommend her.

She planned our bucket list cruise of a lifetime!

Reviewed By 25 years and blessed! - Whitehouse Station, NJ | Traveled to
Ulrike Ocasio is your go-to gal to plan any kind of trip that you need help with. In our case, our travel group is 3 couples that are celebrating significant wedding anniversaries. Our "goal" was to see part of Europe via a cruise and that can be mind boggling. Ulrike narrowed our choices down by listening to what we requested. The choices she gave us matched our travel plans and we are very happy with the results. From everything to transfers and hotel reservations, she has been with us every step of the way! She is a great asset to Clark Travel!

The Consunate Professional

Reviewed By Satisfied Client - Hunterdon County, NJ | Traveled to
I have been dealing with Ulrike for years. She is familiar with the ins and outs of the industry and because of her extensive travel experiences, she can provide first hand information about a variety of travel destinations. She is pro-consumer in that she has always searched for the best "deals," discounts and perks that will make your "vacation" stress free and enjoyable. My most significant experience with her dealt with cancelled travel plans in January 2013. Working with my travel insurance company, cruise line and air carrier, she was able to successfully reschedule the trip for the following year with no loss of money to me. Cancellation fees were not charged and I was exceptionally happy with her "let me take care of it for you" attitude. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional and reliable travel agent to research and book your dream vacation.
