It's a beautiful world & I'll help you discover it

    I started planning travel for friends when I lived in Italy. I loved studying the train schedules and finding new places for my friends to explore.  Fast forward a few years and I turned that innate passion into a career. I've been an IATAN registered travel advisor since 2002. I enjoy learning about new places and helping clients experience all this beautiful world has to offer.

    I have traveled extensively throughout Western Europe, including living in Italy.  I have also traveled to Antarctica; Australia; Beijing, China; Brazil; Bhutan; Britain; Cambodia; Canada; Cancun, Mexico; several Caribbean islands; Costa Rica, Cuba; Greenland; Iceland; Ireland; Israel; Japan; Kenya; New Zealand; Norway; Scotland; Thailand; Uganda; and various locations within the United States.  One of my greatest achievements is reaching my goal of visiting all 7 continents before I turned 40!

    I live in Edmond, Oklahoma and work on air reservations, bespoke experiences, cruise reservations, independent and guided tours, all inclusive resort vacations, group travel, and missionary travel requests. 

  My commitment is to provide you with exceptional customer service so your travel dreams become an experience you’ll never forget.

A Short Getaway in Costa Rica

Costa Rica was a fun and fast getaway.

The flights from OKC where pretty straightforward with United, which made the long weekend work better, giving us more time to spend on the ground.

We enjoyed time in Canaan (be sure to visit the Casa Alegría mariposario when you’re there), touring a coffee co-op... Read more from my A Short Getaway in Costa Rica story.

I never thought I needed a travel agent until...

Reviewed By Nick - Port Townsend, WA | Traveled to Rwanda ~ Africa
Katie was super helpful and professional. In a time of crisis, she helped us find the best option for our safe return from Africa, helped us book ongoing flights, hotel rooms, etc. Her follow up was especially helpful in a time when we had so many things happening at once that we weren't always thinking clearly. She took a huge burden off of our shoulders.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Katie Hartman responded:
Thank you Nick. I'm honored to have been here to help you all return safely. I look forward to working with you again.

Excellent trip as always.

Reviewed By Alan and Ree - Brazil | Traveled to USA
Katie Hartman has been helping us plan furlough trips from Brazil, around the USA and back to Brazil for many years. We just contact her on email with the dates and places we are thinking about, and she does the rest. She always gets us the best prices, offers options to choose from, provides all the details we need to know and makes planning and payment for the trip easy. As our trip progresses over a three month furlough, she alerts us to changes in schedules and verifies that all is going according to plan. She is kind, loving and generous with her time. Thank you Katie for going the extra mile for us. We appreciate you so much. Alan and Ree - missionaries in Brazil

Alan and Ree, Thank you! I always enjoy working to plan travel for your family. God bless you and your mission efforts.

First Fly Fishing Trip

Reviewed By Keith - Dallas, TX | Traveled to Idaho ~ USA
Katie has put together several fishing trips for myself, family and friends now. She is always very responsive to all of our travel needs, and she is even been able to help us recently in getting return airfares from airlines due to Covid-19. I could not have imagined trying to deal with these difficult type of issues that I have read about, and I didn't because it was all handled by her. One less thing to worry about, and I am very thankful. It made this trip even more pleasant.

Outstanding Service!

Katie is very professional and dedicated. She has gone above and beyond in her service to us. We know that we can count on her to see to the details when we book flights. This is a great feeling because we have several trips that fly out at the same time and things can get hectic.

Great family trip to Japan

Reviewed By Lynn - Edmond, OK | Traveled to Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia
Katie was friendly and professional as she made arrangements for our family trip to Japan. She responded promptly to my questions and requests.
Katie has spent significant time in Japan and was able to assure me that the language barrier would not be much of a problem. She was right! Katie was able to provide us with everything I asked for, which included Japan Rail Passes, Disney Sea tickets, and Robot Restaurant reservations. Our family, with members from four different decades, had a great trip.

She worked with a Japanese agency to deliver some of our tickets in Japan. The agent from that company was also wonderfully helpful.

I normally make these arrangements on my own, but kept hitting roadblocks with this trip. I wish I had gone to Katie for everything from the very start!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Katie Hartman responded:
Lynn, Thank you! It was wonderful to work with you and help you experience a place close to my heart. I'm looking forward to working with you at the start of your next trip. Katie

Everything worked out exceptionally well

Reviewed By Tickey - Oklahoma | Traveled to USA
Katie was very helpful in organising the tickets and geting the neccesary documents signed. As I haven't flown for a while she made the whole experience work well. She kept me informed on changes to flights and worked diligently to ensure that everything was in order. I had to cut my trip short because of coronavirus concerns. We found out that Australia (my home) was stopping flights and I needed to get on one soon to leave the country. Katie changed my tickets for me and got me on a flight the next day, and I didn't have to do a thing. It all ran so smoothly. She was very professional.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Katie Hartman responded:
Thank you Peter. It was a pleasure to work with you and I'm thankful to have been here to help you return home quickly when the situation called for it. I look forward to working with you again soon.

9 years and counting

Reviewed By Craig W. - Horse Cave, KY | Traveled to Cuzco ~ Peru ~ South America
I highly recommend Katie Hartman as a travel agent. Katie has helped us plan week long mission trips for 9 years. My original contact with her came as a result of a recommendation by a missionary. She has professionally, securely, and accommodatingly booked international flights to South America and Africa, as well as reserving domestic hotel accommodations. Each time, she has thoughtfully considered our expressed needs and recommendations. She has also informatively answered any questions we have had. We especially found Katie's services useful when one of our connecting flights was cancelled and she was able to have us booked on another one before we began our long flight home. We will be booking through Katie again soon, for both professional and personal travel.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Katie Hartman responded:
Thank you Craig. It's been fantastic to work with you these past 9 years. I look forward to many more.

Beautiful Rwanda

Reviewed By Lynn - Fort Worth | Traveled to Rwanda ~ Africa
Katie was absolutely on top of everything. She was sure to let us know what would be important for us to pursue in regards to travel amenities and insurance on our trip, without being pushy to make us spend more money than we intended. She was absolutely ESSENTIAL when it came time for us to cut our trip short due to flights getting cancelled for COVID-19. She found us a way out of the country and back to the US that routed us around hot spots and got us back quickly and without too much hassle. I have never used a travel agent before and originally thought it was an 'excessive' purchase. After my experience on this trip, I would say it was 100% absolutely worth it, and I plan to use Katie again on subsequent trips!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Katie Hartman responded:
Lynn Thank you! It was a pleasure to work with you leading up to your trip and I'm thankful to have been here for you when your emergency return was needed. I look forward to working with you again, Katie
