Nancy Cowen

Wilmington, North Carolina Travel Agent

An independent agent with Travel Leaders in High Point, NC,

Certified Leisure Travel Specialist

After 18 years as an airport passenger service agent I embraced my layoff and continued my employment in the travel industry as a full service travel agent in leisure travel sales. I use my years of traveling experience to assist my clients with deciding on " where, when and what." I capture the best value for their desired destination by educating myself on the many vendors with which Travel Leaders has an association. My passion is groups; the more the merrier. With our busy lives, a family or friend vacation is the best way to relax and experience the connections which bind us all while letting the resort or cruise line take care of the cooking and cleaning!!! What started out with my selling international travel to student groups, has turned out to be a wonderful niche of multi-generational vacations. When working at busy Newark airport, I always volunteered to check-in the groups. I loved the excitement in the gathering of skis or suitcases bound for mountains, shorelines or the seven seas. Now I am arranging these groups. Life is truly a circle!

We super appreciate it and will definitely come to you again in the future for our travel needs and will happily refer our friends to you!!!!

Vail: Like Nothing on Earth

I may be biased as I have a son who lives in Vail, but I cannot imagine a better place to take your family to enjoy winter sports or SUMMER activities. I've skied Vail since 2010 and discover something new on the mountain every year. My son can attest to over ... Read more from my Vail: Like Nothing on Earth story.

Latest and Best Cruise

Reviewed By Martha - Naples, Florida | Traveled to Rhine Valley ~ Germany ~ Europe
My husband and I have booked many trips, primarily cruises, through Nancy. Recently she handled a wonderful Viking cruise for us and five other couples. Superb work. Working with Nancy has been a delight over the years. She exhibits a very rare quality in the service business-she truly puts the customer FIRST. In all regards. We find her to be extremely knowledgeable of destinations, cruise lines, etc., and very much appreciate her insights, thoughts. She is very detail oriented, leaving nothing to chance. She always seems to find the best available rooms, at the best price, always aware of and taking advantage of any and all promotions available. Nancy is very timely following up on questions we may have, very thorough in her responses.

Finally, it is worth noting that we used to book our own trips, and felt we were pretty thorough. Then we enlisted Nancy to handle all of our travel needs. What an upgrade!!! She is a real asset to Travel Leaders. An indispensable asset to us.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

10 years of great service!

Reviewed By Linda - Ipswich, MA | Traveled to Europe, Mexico, Taiwan
I do not hesitate to (and in fact, frequently do) recommend Nancy Cowen to anyone needing top notch travel assistance and support! By far, Nancy is the best I have ever worked with! She and I have worked together for nearly ten years sending student & teacher groups to countries around the world and she has never let me down. Nancy is promptly responsive to our needs or questions and manages to obtain affordable flights, train tickets and hotels. She is a 100% reliable professional and is well informed about all aspects of travel.

Caribbean Vacations

Reviewed By Will - High Point, NC | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
Nancy has booked two Caribbean vacations for my wife and I, including one that was our honeymoon. Both times she listened to what we wanted to experience on the different trips, and recommended places that exceeded all of our expectations. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to book a total package vacation, especially one to the Caribbean.
