Travel Specialist - Eau Claire WI

With over 30 years in the travel industry, I’ve watched the world become more accessible than ever before – and I’m still amazed at all the places I’ve been able to send my clients...

My first focus was on corporate travel early in my career, but I’ve progressively expanded to more leisure travel for families, couples, and large groups.

I am happy to work with clients who have never traveled before as well as clients that are highly experienced world travelers looking for something off the beaten path and different. I will ensure that no matter what level of travel you are comfortable with, I can create a trip that is personalized specifically for you. Although I like the challenge of custom itineraries and adventures, my most common vacation bookings include:

AlaskaHoneymoons/Anniversary TripsOcean & River CruisesMulti-destination travelEscorted ToursAnd more

…From Mexico to Europe, the Caribbean Islands, Disney Parks and Cruises, Alaska and beyond,I have had the privilege to not only send my clients to these destinations but visit them myself. Of all the destinations I’ve been to, I have developed a true passion for Alaska. The Alaskan wilderness and scenery are second to none and it’s a destination that clients of all ages enjoy visiting. I can help you determine the itinerary that best suits your interests and budget, as well as hand-picked recommendations you can’t find online.

Whether you are looking to go by yourself, with your spouse, or with a large group, let me handle all the details so you can focus on your much-needed vacation. As your trusted travel advisor, I am ready to take care of you from our first contact together until you return home.  I look forward to working with you on your next adventure.

Most recent trip was THE most carefree trip ever!

Reviewed By LAC - Eau Claire, WI | Traveled to Adriatic Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Karen is WONDERFUL!! She has helped me with several trips now and I have been totally satisfied with what she has done for me with each of them. The last several have been cruises for which I like to arrive days in advance so as to enjoy out the departure city and to also to ensure that I don't "Miss the Boat!"

My travel companions live some distance away so we fly from airports closest to our home base and meet up with each other at our destination. Initially I was, for various reasons including health issues, very apprehensive about doing this. That is no longer the case. Karen has skilfully made arrangements that address any issue I may be having.

As times passes, my inclination is to do less schlepping with luggage & jumping into a curbside cabs, so Karen arranges for a driver to pick me & my luggage up at the carousal and turn me over to the Bell Captain at the hotel she has booked for us. I'm loving it (and her)

Karen has always been so helpful and fun to work with! She has always helped us find the best trips. When we travel to Disney she finds the best flights and rooms. When we have ran in to problems with flights due to weather she has worked with us to fix the issue and get us to our destinations.

Amazing Vacation!!

Reviewed By Six Happy Customers - Eau Claire, WI | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
This was our first time using Higgins Travel, we've used our AAA agent in the past, but she wasn't returning our calls or emails.

Karen promptly responded to all of our questions, listened to our wants, needs, and desires and landed a "10"! There were six of us to accommodate and Karen nailed it!

Great customer service, friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. We will definitely recommend her to other friends and family, in state or out of state!

Another Great Trip

Reviewed By Rozie - Eau Claire, WI | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
Karen Hurlburt has been my travel counselor for all three of my trips to different parts of Europe in the past four years. I return to Karen because each of the three trips has been a great travel experience. Karen always answers questions about travel needs and expectations in the different countries. I will continue to see Karen for future trips because she clearly explains information and responds to questions or concerns in a timely fashion.

Best travel experinces ever

Reviewed By Carrie K - La Crosse, Wisconsin | Traveled to India ~ Central Asia
Karen has been helping me plan my overseas travels for over 15 years. As a solo traveler, I like to have as many of the details planned out as I can before I leave the country. She has always done a fantastic job helping me coordinate flights, tours, Visas, etc. And she is always willing to go that extra step in seeking out answers for my many, many questions. She has always come through for me and I appreciate that very much. Thank you, Karen!

**Empires-of-the-Mediterranean** Wow, Fabulous

Reviewed By Contented Cruiser - Eau Claire, WI | Traveled to Athens ~ Greece ~ Europe
I couldn't have done this trip without Karen! She came up with the perfect cruise for us (I like to take my bedroom with me when I travel) Booking the cruise was probably the easy part. She not only did that, she took care every other form of transport I required & anything I needed to ensure maximum comfort and stress free travel including Economy Comfort seating.My travel companion and I were meeting each other in Athens and parting ways in Venice so I had some concerns regarding the trip there and back. Not to worry! Karen made certain my flights were all on the same carrier or it's partners, so once the luggage was checked it was out of sight and out of mind, no further handling from me. She arranged wheel chair service to get to the gate, change of planes, luggage pickup etc. Since our trip extensions were not booked with the cruise ship, we were responsible to find our own transport to and from the hotels. Karen arranged car service with Viatours Perfect!
Stress Free Yea
