As owner of Premier Travel Service, I look forward to planning luxury travel experiences for clients because they trust that I will exceed their expectations and provide an extraordinary vacation. I enjoy selling the memories that travel creates and providing the assurance to clients that their trip with be a once in a lifetime experience. With years of travel industry experience, my company has provided a comprehensive slate of worldwide travel services to individuals, families and small corporate clients.

I specialize in custom leisure travel experiences to various destinations around the world. This opportunity to experience new things that cause us to continue to learn and grow is all a part of the adventure that traveling provides. Top that with a luxury relaxation getaway and you have a vacation you will never forget.

Planning a leisure travel vacation goes beyond booking a flight and hotel to a luxury resort. The truth is, travel can be a wonderful, positive experience when the details of your trip are thoughtfully planned. This includes making sure you have enough time for connecting flights, that you are staying in a safe/comfortable resort and that you take advantage of resources available to improve the quality of your travel experience.

Travel has been a passion of mine for well over 25 years. I consider myself an aviation enthusiast and have an affinity for studying the airline industry in all aspects. A bachelor’s degree in airport administration and a business degree in aviation sparked an interest in the travel industry from a young age.

Spending much of my childhood in Belgium and Italy, I developed a love of exploration that grew more and more with age. I have had the great opportunity to travel extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Asia, the Middle East and India.

I have to say that one of my favorite destinations is India. Shockingly beautiful with breathtaking culture, I highly recommend this destination to anyone looking for a true adventure. The vast amount of history and ancient culture to explore will not be lost on any of your senses. And without question, when visiting, you must experience all the Taj Mahal has to offer.

I look forward to assisting you in planning your next luxury travel getaway!

John Brawley's meticulous approach, thorough research and knowledgeable advice have brought me savings and/or peace of mind on numerous occasions now. He helped me plan a trip to Europe with my two sons, showing me that we could add three nights in a hotel in Barcelona to our week in Paris and save so much in airfare that, even counting the plane from Spain to France, we still came out ahead. The hotel was great and everything went smoothly. John later offered suggestions when my son missed his plane on Thanksgiving weekend. He's been incredibly helpful.

Best Travel Agent in Minneapolis!!!!

Reviewed By LV - Minneapolis, Minnesota | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
We have worked with John for over 3 years now, and seriously cannot recommend him highly enough. We discovered him by chance online - just a mere google search gave us his name - and we contacted him because he was in our neighborhood. No recommendations, no previous research, just pure luck. And what a find!

From all-inclusive trips to Mexico for our family of four (one of which had to co-ordinate two families), to multi-stop international trips to Oceania and Europe (which included searches for flights with good connections and minimal layovers, car hire, insurance and handy hints on how to upgrade last-minute to business!!) John's service has been nothing short of amazing.

He is so informative (with highly detailed knowledge, and if he doesn't know he will research it for you), courteous and responsive we have complete trust in him finding us the travel arrangements that suited us for the right price - with our travel enjoyment always at the forefront of what he does.

Many Many AWESOME Trips

Reviewed By Nicole Zapzalka - Wayzata, MN | Traveled to Mexico
I met John as he was live auction donor for a charity supporting diabetic children. We bought that trip and he did such an amazing job setting it up that we decided to use him for other trips. Since then he has set up several girls trips, multiple family vacations and additional trip with the in-laws. My friends who have traveled with me now use John for their vacation arrangements! We love how quick he is to respond, how thorough he is in looking at all pricing options, and how he always seems to find a better deal that would I could book myself on the internet. Add that to his knowledge of the areas and resort companies and you have a winning combination. Thanks John!
