Gayle Mehus

Mesa, Arizona Travel Agent

An independent agent with Cruises & Tours, Unlimited in Jacksonville, FL, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Caribbean & Mexico Beach Vacation Expert

I was drawn into the travel industry in high school, when I received on-the-job training at a local travel agency. From there, my career allowed me to fulfill several different roles — from managing three different agencies to working as a customer service representative for an airline and finally to booking corporate and leisure travel for clients.

Through it all, I discovered that helping people book their dream vacations was my favorite thing to do. I always say, I didn't choose the travel industry. It chose me.

I specialize in booking the following vacations:

  • Cruise vacations — I have personally traveled on three different cruise lines, including Royal Caribbean, Carnival and Holland America. My favorite cruise is the Caribbean cruise, as you can enjoy many luxurious, tropical destinations in one incredible vacation.
  • Walt Disney World — This is the place where magic comes to life, and families of all ages and stages will love this destination.
  • Europe — I have experience with England, Norway, France, Germany and the Netherlands, and I love to discover new destinations.
  • Cayman Islands — Having been to Grand Cayman 19 times, I truly know this destination and can provide expert recommendations for my clients.
  • Mexico — My clients love to book all-inclusive resort vacations in Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya and Cozumel. I can match them with a resort that will exceed their expectations.

Throughout my career, I have made industry training a top priority, which has allowed me to become an expert in leisure travel. I am a Carlson Wagonlit Certified Travel Specialist.

I hold 20 different destination specializations for exotic places across the globe, including:

  • Argentina
  • Norway
  • Cayman Islands
  • South Pacific
  • Turks and Caicos

In addition, I earned certifications for 15 resorts and hotel properties. My vast knowledge allows me to match my clients with the destination and accommodations that will perfectly meet their needs.

I found Gayle's name on the internet with other agents. I emailed 4 agents and she is the only one that got back to me and followed through. She planned a wonderful vacation for my family in New York. She took the time to find a place to stay with the space and view we were looking for. Very friendly and helpful! I would definitley recommend Gayle to provide a fabulous vacation for you!

Great Agent!

Gayle was very helpful in planning my first trip out of the country to Cancun, Mexico. She took care of everything. She was able to answer any questions I had and comforted my out-of-the country jitters. I recommend Gayle to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, experience travel agent. I will definitely use her again.

Gayle was very helpful in planning our spring break trip. We had 2 families of 4 going to Cozumel, Mexico. She was quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. She was able to get us a great deal on our flights and saved us some cash! I will definitely be using Gayle for any future travel plans!

No other agent will do!

Reviewed By Suze - Saint Paul MN | Traveled to
Gayle is truly one in a million! She took all the stress out of planning our March 2016 cruise. Neither of us had ever been on a cruise before and the minute we saw the cruise line's website we knew we were in trouble. Even the cruise line's employees couldn't navigate it and were generally unaware of several benefits and time and trouble saving features their employer offered. Gayle knew all about everything they offered and took care of everything for us. We simply outlined our preferences and she made all that happen. It was the best vacation ever, due in large part to Gayle's knowledge, advice and care-taking of two neophyte cruisers. Thank you Gayle! We will never plan a vacation without you and will not hesitate to give your name to friends and colleagues planning a get-away.

Best Travel Agent EVER!!!!

Reviewed By LFuller - Saint Paul, MN | Traveled to
I've now "traveled" with Gayle for 4 vacations--the Bahamas, two times in Hawaii (Oahu, Maui), and once in Costa Rica. Gayle is very knowledgeable on all these places, and more! She is the ONLY person I contact whenever I have any traveling questions because I trust her instinct and opinions. Besides being a great travel agent, she has also become a true friend! She has over 30 years experience in the travel industry and knows her stuff! I'm planning another trip this fall to Niagara Falls, and Gayle will be in charge of every detail. Thanks, Gayle, for always going that extra mile for me!!

She made everything easy.

Reviewed By JSU - Eagan, MN | Traveled to
Gayle helped me plan my trip to Mexico for my wedding. As many times as I switched the travel dates, or changed the number of people who were going, or any number of other things, Gayle didn't blink an eye and got right on top of it. I had my family contact her directly for bookings and they all said how pleasant she was. My trip was amazing and it was all the little things that made it that way and most were thanks to Gayle. I plan on using her in the future if I am looking for an agent or if a friend needs one i will most definitely give her as a referral.
