Angela Barr

Ypsilanti, Michigan Travel Agent

Great Escapes Travel, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Family & Group Travel Specialist

Travel is my passion!! 

My Mother introduced me to travel at a very young age when we lived in California.  As a family we would take road trips every year visiting San Diego, San Francisco, Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. 

Plus regular trips to the local theme parks – Disneyland, Magic Mountain and Knott’s Berry Farm.  These trips created wonderful memories that I still cherish to this day!

As a Mother to two sons, I have passed on my love of travel.  I have been fortunate enough to take my children on many amazing vacations.  Taking vacations with my children and seeing the world through their eyes, made me realized what an amazing gift traveling really is.

Where I’ve been
I have visited 31 different US states, 11 Caribbean islands and taken more than 10 cruises. 

My favorite US vacation destination is Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.  I have visited more than 12 times in the past 11 years.  

My favorite Caribbean destination is Jamaica.  The island is absolutely beautiful!!  The food is wonderful and the people are friendly.  

Why I became a Travel Agent
After years of planning vacations for myself, my family and friends, I decided to become a Travel Agent.   In 2011, I started working with an established Travel Agency.  After gaining travel industry knowledge and experience, I was able to start my own Travel Agency in 2014.

Providing personalized Customer Service and achieving Customer Satisfaction is my #1 goal.  I work with my clients through the entire vacation planning process. From beginning to end – I am with them every step of the way. 

I want to help my clients plan fantastic vacations that will create memories that last a lifetime.

I have a Bachelor’s of Arts in Business Administration.  And I am working on my Master’s in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

I have spent years learning about the travel industry to be able to better assist my clients.  I have received the following certifications:

* Accredited Cruise Counsellor
* Disney Destinations – Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Lines, Disney’s Aulani and Adventures by Disney
* Universal Orlando, Sea World Parks and Legoland specialist
* Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Lines and Carnival Cruise Lines specialist
* Certified Sandals Specialist
* Honeymoon and Destination Wedding Specialist
* Family Travel Specialist
* Hawaii, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando, Jamaica, St Martin and St Lucia Destination Specialist

What I can do for YOU
Over the years, I have cultivated relationships with top suppliers.  Because of this, I know exactly where to go to find the best destinations, newest products and special promotions.

This relationship helps me to better assist my clients in planning vacations that will meet their unique needs.

Expert Guidance
With years of industry experience, I have both the knowledge and experience to help my clients decide which destination, cruise or resort will best fit their needs.

Plus, I have the travel information they need - from the best attractions to see, the most exciting activities to do, and the most affordable ways to get there.

I understand that some clients may feel limited by their vacation budget. That's why I am dedicated to helping them plan vacations that give them the best possible value for their vacation dollar.

Personalized Service
I devote time and effort to making sure my clients are happy with their travel options. Once they book their vacation with me, I am with them every step of the way – before, during and after their vacation.

If they need my assistance, I'm just a phone call or e-mail away. My clients receive the personalized attention they not only need, but deserve.

Time Savings
Who has time to wade through the vast amounts of travel information out there?  I do!  I save my clients both time and money by doing the research for them. 

I narrow down the list to identify the vacation options that best fit their needs and then present it to my clients

Angela Barr did such a fabulous job planning my Disney experience. She planned everything down to making the reservations for all the restaurants we would like. Created a daily activity sheet we followed to ensure we saw everything and went to every park. Thank you again!!!

She was knowledgeable in all areas of planning this vacation.

Reviewed By Keila - Farmington Hills, MI | Traveled to
When I went to Angela I had no idea of what I was exactly looking for. I went over a few things I wanted, but I had never been on a cruise. I told her I would love to do a Disney cruise and she sent me the info the same day. I was so happy that she did. I ask a lot of questions. She was so patient with me, even when the questions were repetitive. I was told that Disney cruises were extremely expensive. After Angela went over everything with me, I decided it was worth fitting into my budget. I was not disappointed. She gave me step by step details of what to expect and what was expected from me. She is my travel agent forever. I was impressed by her knowledge, her friendliness and her passion toward her job as an travel agent. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone.

Angela is such an awesome travel agent. She planned my first trip to Walt Disney world and I had the time of my life as an adult with no kids . She planned every detail and made sure my trip was effortless. This is just the first of many trips she will be planning for me. I'm ready for her to do Universal studios, Jamaica, Vegas, and many more!!!!

Our sons are now hooked on cruising!

Reviewed By T Barr - White Lake, MI | Traveled to Bermuda ~ Caribbean
Angela booked my family of four for a 5-day cruise. We were celebrating both our sons being graduated from high school. Two of their friends also went with us. Angela helped coordinate plans for all three families. The advice she gave for preparing for the cruise and things to do during the cruise was priceless! We all had the time of our lives.

Thank you Angela for your attention to detail!
