Judy Rawls

Audubon, New Jersey Travel Agent

Great Escapes Travel, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

All-Inclusive Resorts and Cruise Specialist

Golden Temple, Kyoto Japan
Golden Temple, Kyoto Japan

For the past 32 years, I have worked as a leisure travel agent with exciting opportunities to design lasting dreams and create life-changing memories for my clients. It's that simple, and it's always rewarding.

I have traveled to 98 countries around the world, and taken 75 cruises, both ocean and river cruises (I'm a Master Cruise Counselor).

I'm often asked what my favorite trip is and my answer is always "my next one"!  With so many remarkable places in the world to experience, and all so very different, how can you just pick one? 

New to travel - I enjoy working with brand new travelers to show them what the world holds and then make it happen. And I love the challenge of our world travelers in seeking out new destinations and enticing adventures in cultures, cuisines, and activities.

Romance - Honeymooners and couples are a joy to work with. They are often certain of what they'd like to have included; they just don't know how to find it.

Family - I also enjoy working with families to plan the perfect escape that includes something special for everyone, so that their happy memories are relived at every gathering for years!

My clients know that I care about them and their dreams. I work hard to get the best value for your travel dollar, and always offer honest, unbiased professional advice and expert guidance for safe and satisfying travel.

I carefully explain the 'small print' and travel rules, cut through the complex elements of your trip, and walk you through it step-by-step. The more you know before you go, the easier it is and the more time you'll spend simply enjoying!

I'm on your side; customer service isn't just a phrase to me but a way of life. I work diligently before your departure to insure that all of the details have been handled, confirmed, and explained. I don't stop working for you once you've booked your trip. Some things can't be anticipated, such as weather delays, but I'm right here to take care of it for you.

Best Ever

Reviewed By Marie - HAddon Township, NJ | Traveled to
Judy makes our trips so easy. She has never failed to get us the best prices, rooms and extras. Our family trips to Disney, Universal, and Niagara Falls some of the best memories for our crew of six. She listens to our needs and matches them to the right hotels and activities. We have used her since our honeymoon and 26 years later we still go back when we plan a trip. She even helped to get our son to California for a movie premiere without any fuss especially on a very short time table.

Reviewed By Rita - North Wildwood, NJ | Traveled to
We have been using Judy for all our trips for at least 20 years. She booked our trips to Italy, Paris and San Francisco and many different Islands. We have always been completely satisfied with all our hotels and trips. My three sons have also used her for their honeymoons and any other trip they have planned. We have sent several people to her and they have all been very happy with Judy and all her recommendations. We think she is the best Travel Agent around and wouldn't use anyone but Judy!

She gave us such peace of mind that everything was taken care of !!!

Reviewed By Anita - Berlin, NJ | Traveled to
Judy is wonderful and a delight to work with. She was so knowledgeable of our destination and really helped guide us in all aspects of our trip...time, expense, points of interest and more! I am a terrible worrier so naturally I had a long list of questions. She answered almost all from the top of her head, and those she didn't know, she researched on the spot and answered every one within a few minutes. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know. I enjoyed all our conversations with her. She is funny and a joy. I wish we could take her with us on our vacation!

Best Agent I've Used!!

Reviewed By StaceyLee - United States | Traveled to
As a seasoned traveler I expect a lot from my travel agent and from the destinations they recommend. I have been so thrilled with the service and advice that I've received from Judy. She truly listens to your preferences and works very hard to find the best match. She never dIsappoints!! Additionally, when I discovered an issue with a flight the day before my trip which was completely my doing, Judy had the problem fixed within an hour, outside her regular business hours, and did so cheerfully and professionally. Judy books at least 2 trips a year for me and I never hesitate to recommend her to family and friends. She is the best agent I've used!

Judy at Great Escapes is great to work with when planning a vacation. She has been most places and has fun stories and tidbits to share. She provides plenty of information regarding each trip and even for trips I am just thinking about. Judy provides lots of suggestions and doesn't hesitate to steer you away from things that she doesn't feel are worthwhile or are not safe. I like her travel suggestions and she is very responsive when I contact her with questions or need information. I have recommended her to others who have also been happy with her services.

Reviewed By Joanne, Stratford, New Jersey - Stratford, New Jersey | Traveled to
Judy has catered to all of our desires, especially when it's last minute. After being with Judy all these years, she knows where to send us and where not to send us. Any place she has booked for us fits us perfectly. She can tell you about any place. If she doesn't know the answer ( which rarely happens) she will find out for us. One time when we were cruising there was going to be a full moon. We wanted the moon to be on our side while cruising while the moon was full . She arranged it!!!! Who does that? JUDY !!!! We would go to no one else.

Judy has become an invaluable resource both as our personal travel consultant, and as the person we trust to counsel and create often complex arrangements for our pilgrim travelers who may be travelling abroad for the first time alone or as a couple, and need to meet up with us at a destination. She without hesitation shares her extraordinary expertize as well as her patient companioning presence where not just information is required, but also the kind of reassurance that allows travelers to be brave and enjoy it. I recommend her over many years to a wide variety of clientele and have always heard back from them only gratitude and a sense of wellbeing from the encounter.
