I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years, starting with AAA at age 20 doing TripTiks and booking hotel reservations. I have a great love of geography, maps, and our world, and I enjoy living vicariously through my clients!

I have traveled extensively throughout the United States, including many National Parks, and enjoy piecing together National Park road trips. I also have a great love for Italy and Nicaragua.

My clients are family to me, and I work hard to book the most appropriate and fitting packages and properties for them.

I live with my two Shetland Sheepdogs in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

Here is a partial list of places I have traveled to:

Nicaragua, Romania, Italy, Hawaii, Hong Kong, Italy, Morocco, Croatia, Thailand, Alaska, Montana, Mexico, Engand, Scotland, Canada........

2016 Rail and Auto Trip

Reviewed By Chas - Wallingford, Vermont | Traveled to Oregon ~ USA
I have relied on Jared's professionalism frequently over the past several years. In addition to assisting me with any pre-planning I might be making, Jared's personal travel experiences are always helpful in my making informed decisions. He is diligent in making reservations and I have never encountered a problem with any scheduling he had done on my behalf. Given his attention to detail, his pleasant deportment, and his dedication to his clients, I would never consider using anyone else to assist me in establishing my future travel plans.

I have worked with Jared for at least 13 years now. He is very efficient and he listens well. I work mainly in Central America and some in South America so I have needed housing in many different areas. You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with him. Barb

Traveling is a breeze!

Reviewed By Hassle Free Traveler - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Boston ~ Massachusetts ~ USA
We have worked with Jared for several years and he always gets back to us quickly when contacted, gives us our travel options and cost, and then books everything at lightning speed. He is great to work with and makes traveling a breeze whether is it for business or pleasure. Jared goes out of his way to take care of us, even when he is traveling himself. Also, his experience as a world traveler is invaluable when making recommendations which gives us great confidence our trip will go well.

A Travel Agent From Day One

Reviewed By Jared's Mom (and traveling companion!) - Lincoln, Vermont | Traveled to Nicaragua ~ Central America
Jared is my son, one of my favorite traveling companions, and an experienced travel agent who knows his stuff! He has been a travel agent since 1996; the care he gives to his in their travel and vacation planning is detailed and tailored to their interests and needs. It's great to watch from this end while he's working! Ever since he was a young boy, he loved geography, maps, and our family travels. That love, which is a true passion, has made him the travel professional he is today.

Leave it up to Jared

Reviewed By Grateful for Jared - Burnsville MN | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Jared created a trip to Hawaii where we visited 3 islands, rented a car on each and stayed in condos he found and booked for us. He took care of all air travel between islands and always stayed within the budget we shared with him. Everything was perfect, the condos were beautiful and all transfers were done with ease and efficiency. He asks the right questions of what you are looking for and then delivers a product that will impress you. Thank you for your time and care in which you make our travel plans.

The best travel agent for all your travel needs

Reviewed By Nuners - Deming, N.M. | Traveled to Carribean
Jared works hard to get you the most value for your money. He gives you the best value for your money and always "goes the extra mile" getting you the best value for your money. He finds the best deals for you. Frequently these deals are not even on the internet. He sets up help for those who need wheel chair transfers in airports, and so forth. In short "Jared is a jewel"

Jared Buker Highly Recommended!

Reviewed By Caroline - Bristol, Vermont | Traveled to Europe
I had figured that getting a travel agent in this day and age of internet searches was an expensive luxury, but no. It was worth every penny to lay my fuzzy travel plans at Jared's feet and he picked it up and ran with it! And the cost is truly not a hardship for what you get.

You can tell he loves his work. He listened and immediately pivoted when he heard something I said that didn't fit with what he was initially thinking.

When I go on vacation I want to be on vacation, not worrying about all the details. I leave that to Jared! :)

A Travel Agent For All Needs

Reviewed By NPapaya - White River Junction, VT | Traveled to France ~ Europe
Jared has been my go-to agent for five years. I've loved partnering with him to find the best prices and times on flights, arranging car rentals, finding lodging - often internationally. He's flexible, responsive, and creative. He works hard to understand my particular needs and preferences and I love that I can suggest some places to him to get his feedback and he also shares new finds with me.

My husband and I like to travel to new places and sometimes revisit old favorites in France, Canada and soon -Portugal! Jared's been the perfect travel agent for us. We prefer to communicate mostly by email, but we know Jared is always available via phone, too. For us it's the best of both worlds and we feel better knowing we can turn to him at any time. He also inspires us with his own travels!

Great agent for first time travelers

Reviewed By willkey - Truro, MA | Traveled to Culebrita ~ Puerto Rico ~ Caribbean
Working with Jared has always been nothing short of a pleasure. Always quick to point out details about itinerary or locations, his expertise is second to none.

We have used his services on many occasions, and we highly recommend him to the new traveler and seasoned travelers, as well. His friendly demeanor, and candid personality make him a perfect fit for any agency. We felt relaxed and comfortable throughout the whole experience.

We did experience a little glitch with the "type" of plane we needed to fly on as we were flying our dog in cargo, and the situation was fixed within the amount of time needed to maintain our tight schedule.

To sum it all up, we consider Jared a friend, and would encourage anyone reading this review to message him or call, to see what I am talking about!

So stress-free and easy to book with Jared

Reviewed By Robin Ann - Bristol | Traveled to Nashville ~ Tennessee ~ USA
Jared helped me book a flight to a gathering of friends in Nashville recently. He was able to book it for less than I could, and also kept tabs on it so when the flights changed and my layover was shortened, he contacted me immediately and adjusted the departure to give me a little more time to make my connecting flight. What a pleasure to work with him! I will continue to book through Jared and refer my friends and family to him for their travel needs.

Jared is so well traveled himself, he could pull together the most spectacular dream world trip for you to create memories of a lifetime!
