Barbara Woods

Flossmoor, Illinois Travel Agent

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

Cruise, Caribbean & Hawaii Travel Specialist

I joined the travel industry 12 years ago as a sales agent in a nearby agency. With my love for travel and a strong desire to help others see the world, I enjoyed meeting new clients and helping them have the best vacation possible. I worked with numerous agencies before deciding to open my own travel company where I could better serve my clients. 

Today, I continue to run my own independent agency with a focus on the Caribbean Islands, leisure vacations, and luxury cruises. I work with a wide range of clients including families, groups, and romantic occasions like honeymoons and destination weddings.

I want my clients to have complete confidence in their trip, and I continue to gain new certifications with leading brands and destinations. Some of my certifications include:

  • College of Disney Knowledge
  • Princess Academy
  •  Norwegian Advanced Specialist
  • Celebrity 5-Star Agent
  • Royal Caribbean University of WOW
  • And more!

I will help you create a personalized itinerary without the hassle and stress of doing it on your own. I will listen to you and find the perfect options that match your passions and interests. Everyone has their own idea of a perfect vacation, and my goal is to create an itinerary better than your wildest dreams!

Plus, I will provide assistance during the booking process and while you’re enjoying your time in any destination. When my clients lost their luggage in a London airport, I worked to quickly have it found and sent to their hotel in Spain. When one of my clients got sick during a cruise, I urgently got them home so they could relax and feel better.

I love everything about the Caribbean, and I can recommend some of the best local spots on numerous islands. I have helped couples find the perfect resort for their anniversaries in Aruba, and I have sent families on wonderful adventures in Mexico and beyond. One of my favorite destinations is Hawaii due to the breathtaking nature and colorful culture. I have experience in all of the Hawaiian islands, and I can help you enjoy the best of the state with authentic luaus, snorkeling, and scenic routes.

Wherever you want to go, I’m ready to make your next vacation the best it can be!

"I must admit we have never had such a wonderful time! We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary at the Adult Only Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts in Aruba, they treated us like royalty, and that champagne dinner cruise helped set our hearts anew with love. This is one of the best vacations, we have ever had - and would return to this boutique resort in a heartbeat! Thank you, Ms. Woods for the suggestion of the Tara Beach Suite. YOU DID GOOD!"  R & N
