Honeymoon

Reviewed By Jacob - Spruce pine nc | Traveled to
Wendi took care of everything. Airfare room registration and saved us money in the process the amazing thing is she did it all free of charge to us. She booked excursions and took care of us in every way. Even planning honeymoon surprises. She certainly takes the stress out of planning the honeymoon. I hope to use her agency each year for our anniversary.

Destination Wedding Group trip to Italy

Encrore Travel - Wendy provided an amazing service to myself and now husband. It was absolutely perfect!! Wendy was amazing, she is very responsive day or night weekend or week day she is available.

Came through when we had travel troubles!

Reviewed By Wolfpack81 - Northern VA | Traveled to
During a recent trip to Africa for my wife and I we encountered a nearly worst case scenario - our plane broke in mid-flight, and we ended up back at the original airport with no idea of what to do next. Even though we were 6 hours ahead of our travel agent, we were able to contact Wendy and get nearly immediate relief. She worked with another travel company to rearrange our stay for a secondary destination, and she contacted the person that was waiting to transfer us to our final destination to make alternate arrangements. When the airline finally got us to a location still 4 hours from our final destination (and 6 hours late), we were the ONLY ones to have a ride waiting for us at the terminal to take us to a nice hotel for the night. We didn't have to spend 4 hours on a bus in the middle of the night. Instead, and directly due to Wendy's help, we relaxed in a luxury hotel and had breakfast by the Indian Ocean the next morning. We will DEFINITELY use Wendy Snider for future trips, knowing that we are in good hands!

First (and Wonderful) Experience Together Abroad

Reviewed By Erin - Boston, MA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Wendy was wonderful to work with! We used her for planning our honeymoon to Rome and Sorrento this summer, and we had an amazing time. She made sure all the i's were dotted and t's crossed before we left, even calling us on our way to the airport. Her travel expertise ensured that we had stays at great hotels, skipped long lines (which was very helpful during our 2 1/2 day stay in Rome), and a smooth travelling experience overall. She also had helpful suggestions for traveling and adjusting to time difference; we needed this since it has been a while since either of us have been abroad. My husband had never been to Europe before and, thanks to Wendy, this trip instilled a love of travelling in him and encouraged us to take trips like this more often.

Sandals Antigua

Reviewed By Don and Bailey - Hoboken, NJ | Traveled to Antigua ~ Antigua & Barbuda ~ Caribbean
My girlfriend and I went on a 6 days/5 nights vacation at Sandals Grande Antigua and had an amazing time. We loved the immaculate beaches and incredible standard Sandals holds there resort to. One of the best parts of this vacation was not having to plan and handing the reigns over to an experienced travel agent. Wendy Snider deserves an all-inclusive vacation for how well she took care of us. The extent of my planning came down to a budget and what we were looking for in using our valuable time away. Wendy provided options, explained them well and was very enthusiastic. Not to mention, one of the most important - she is patient. We really enjoyed working with her and will again next year for another Sandals excursion. Thanks again!

Wendy Snider responded:
Thanks Don and I am so happy you had the "time of your life"! I actually just returned from Beaches Turks & Caicos for my personal getaway. As you know, Sandals & Beaches Resorts are really a wonderful experience combined with relaxation and adventure. Looking forward to your next Sandals vacation. Wendy

Wendy is Amazing

Reviewed By davallpartyof2 - Barnardsville, NC | Traveled to
Wendy is extremely knowledgeable and extremely helpful when it comes to travel! We had never been out of the country until our honeymoon and she knew exactly what to do and say to help us! She helped us choose the perfect site for our honeymoon! We absolutely loved Sandals Carlyle and being able to visit Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Royal Carribean! Our honeymoon was perfect and we are headed back to Jamaica in just 6 short days all thanks to Wendy! She truly is a blessing!

Excellent Vacation

Reviewed By Trish - North Carolina | Traveled to
Encore, specifically Wendy Snider, listened to what I wanted in a vacation and definitely delivered! She made several suggestions that met my criteria. Ultimately, I chose one based on price. The resort was fantastic and I felt that Wendy personalized the entire trip, even down to choosing the best room possible!! The Swim Ups are worth the extra money and she got us one that had the best conveniences and views!!! I will be using Wendy for all of our future Vacation Trips!! I highly recommend that you call Wendy at Encore!!! - But wait until I get my next trip scheduled!
