My Travel Philosophy

The best part of choosing me as your travel agent is that I am available 24/7 to take care of anything you need. This type of customized service is what sets me apart as a travel agent. My clients are important to me and each group experience I plan receives incredible attention to detail. When you travel you will never have to worry because if there is a travel emergency, flight cancelation, or hotel accommodation issue, I will take care of it. With years of experience I am available for my clients to help with as much planning or as little planning as they might need. From booking accommodations and transportation all the way up to escorting your group, no detail will be forgotten.

I am confident in the services that I can provide for my clients as I work closely with them to determine exactly what will create the perfect group travel experience. I usually recommend all-inclusive resorts for my clients looking to book an upcoming group package. Besides the great inclusions at these resorts, you also have the opportunity to receive group benefits. From free rooms to luxury meeting accommodations, all-inclusive resorts are a top choice for groups! Pair that with the fact that you will be staying at beautiful destinations such as St. Lucia or the Bahamas and you will have the perfect trip.

From sightseeing trips, flight reservations, bus trips, cruises, and so much more-- I can do it all! So whether you’re in need of booking an upcoming corporate event for your business or looking to getaway on a Caribbean cruise with a group of friends, let’s make your trip a memorable one. Call me today to find out why I can deliver the best vacation experience for your next group getaway!

Client Testimonies

"I just returned from Linda's guided group trip to Prague and a cruise on the Danube River. She was amazing. It was the perfect blend of guided and on-our-own activities. I don't know how she did it, but every detail was taken care of for us! We felt well taken care of."

"Annually we have Linda coordinate our corporate event. Every year she takes care of literally everything. Except talking at the keynote. She makes this part of my job easy. Even if there is an unforeseen problem she seemingly works tirelessly to resolve it so the guests don't even notice the issue."

"Linda stayed up all night when our flight was cancelled. She re booked all of our travel and took care of the insurance claims."

It is always the most recent one.

Reviewed By B'town traveller - Bloomington, IN | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
It has been a true pleasure to have Linda help plan our travels for many, many years. She has been first of all friendly and helpful. I have been impressed that she can often come up with a trip or flight that is better and often less expensive than the one I found on line. Lastly we have referred many friends to her and all have reported back that they were really pleased with her service.

an exceptional class trip to Yosemite

Reviewed By Mr. Carmichael - Ellettsville, Indiana | Traveled to California ~ USA
Linda was exceptional; a professional at many levels. She helped me along as I took a group of 9 special needs students on a cross-country trip to spend a few days in Yosemite National Park. I am a traveler....but flying presented many challenges and Linda was there to 'hold my hand' along the way; she reserved boarding passes and answered my 'nervous' questions without hesitation. Without question I would and will use her services again in the future.

Fantastic Agent!

Reviewed By Trish - Bloomington, IN | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
Linda is incredibly organized, and has made our yearly large group trips so much easier. We had one trip to Las Vegas where we ended up stranded for a few days due to weather, but Linda had us back home way sooner than we ever could have done ourselves. She goes to bat for us, and gets things fixed in no time. I wouldn't dream of doing one of these trips without her!

A great trip

Reviewed By Bill - Bloomington Indiana | Traveled to Washington D.C. ~ District of Columbia ~ USA
We have planned our trips with Linda McClary exclusively since our retirement nine years ago. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and easy to work with. Each trip along with the planning experience has met and often exceeded our expectations. In each instance, Linda's advice and help has contributed to the positive outcome of a great vacation. She has always been available when a problem arose. When a problems did arise, it was a function of an airline and not a result of the planning process. We have recommend Linda highly to friends and family members and to anyone else who has asked our advice about finding a good travel agent.

Linda is extremely efficient and goes the extra mile to make thinks perfect! I took a group of students to France before the start of the pandemic and she was able to reorganize our flights once we realized we needed to come home early. Linda worked day and night (even in the middle of the night) to make sure we were taken care of and got home safely. I will forever be grateful for her compassion and dedication to us. She’s incredible!

Honeymoon Happiness

Reviewed By Amy - Eden Prairie, MN | Traveled to Mexico
Absolutely Excellent. Linda is responsive, detailed, and helped make our trips absolutely perfection for us. For our honeymoon 6 days before we left, we requested to change our hotel, and Linda made the change happen instantaneously, giving us several other options to choose from, all the while she was so pleasant to work with, easy to talk to, and she listened carefully to our needs all the way through. Our first experience with Linda was a European multi city trip, where after she arranged all the flights, hotels, transfers, and even some restaurants, but I broke my foot and at the very last minute we needed to cancel. But despite all the time she spent researching and planning for us, she was so nice about it all and we have bookmarked it for the future. She planned another trip, for us to Florida, which needed to be canceled due to Covid. Again, she was very understanding and helpful. We will continue to use Linda in the future, and recommend you do too if you want 5 star service.

Whirlwind Tour

Reviewed By YetAnotherMatt - Bloomington, Indiana | Traveled to France ~ Europe
Linda coordinated the travel for my daughter and her high-school classmates on a trip to France in early 2020. Shortly after their arrival in Paris, US travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 outbreak required rapid and detailed rearranging of schedules, flights, etc, in order to get the class back home. Linda handled it with grace and composure, deftly managing the issue as well as calming parents in various states of distress. I can't thank her enough for her role in my daughter's (unexpectedly exciting) European adventure.

Our Home Away from Home

Reviewed By Megan - Indianapolis, IN | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Although I have never met Linda face to face, I have been booking trips with her for the past several years, which can attest to what a pleasure she is to work with over the phone, and I am sure even better in person.

Linda is not only professional, but always readily available and provides great recommendations for travel. She gets back to you in a timely manner and always tries to find the best accommodations at reasonable pricing.

I first spoke with Linda four years ago when trying to plan a family trip to Mexico around Christmas. Linda helped decide on our destination of Cozumel and the Palace Resorts. My family loved that trip so much that it has become a tradition of ours to go every year around Christmas time. Linda has helped us book that trip for the past four years and will continue to do so for several years to come.

I am so appreciative to have someone like Linda to go to when planning a trip. Not only is she a great travel agent, but a wonderful person!

A Trip to Remember!

Reviewed By Beth - Bloomington, IN | Traveled to Europe
We couldn't be happier with the service we received from start to finish on planning our Western Mediterranean cruise this past summer. From booking reservations, airline tickets, hotel rooms, tours and more, Linda made it seem effortless. She was always quick to get back with me on answers to my questions and providing additional helpful information. Linda was professional and easy to work with during the planning. We have used her for several trips, abroad and here in the states. At times I have thrown things at her pretty quickly, but she never skipped a beat. Linda is even good at following up afterwards to see how the trip went. I would definitely recommend her and Travel Leaders for anyone wanting to go on a trip.

She is even great with large group travel. We have used her for many years for a 60+ choir group. You wont be disappointed!
