Destination Wedding, Honeymoon, and Family Travel

Are you sitting down at your computer right now, trying to make sense of the resort reviews? Are you wishing for a desitination wedding or honeymoon and have no real idea where to start? Is it time for a family vacation, and don't know where to begint? Are you trying to figure out if using a travel agency is right for you?

My name is Debi Kasen, owner of Family Globe Travel. I started my agency to work with special clients to show them the best ways to travel. I am a Jewish princess who likes the very best when I travel, but for the lowest price. I am like a bossy sister who won't let you waste your money and demands the best for her clients.

I live in very sunny Scottsdale, Arizona with my husband and two children. Thank goodness they all like to travel!

Yes, I know my agency doesn't have the "dreamy sound" of an exclusively focused honeymoon agency. I am the travel fairy that wants to be your go to person for all the important events in your life. After all, do you change dentists every time you have a new dental problem?

For destination weddings, I know lots of tricks to max out resort promos so you have a beautiful wedding at a lower cost. I won't let any wedding planner upsell you into spending on items that don't add to your vision.

For my honeymooners, I always tell them, "look, it's a brochure." Yes, it looks pretty, but wouldn't you like to know what it really looks like? Let's send you somewhere amazing!

For my families, I encourage you to travel with your children and go everywhere. Why not? Imagine how the history lessons come to life when your children actually get to see the Roman Colosseum, or the ancient ruins of Ephesus. Makeup shopping in Paris is fun too.

I have traveled the globe as a single person, honeymooned in Bora Bora, and vacationed in Caribbean and Europe with my children. I've actually been to many of the places you have dreamed of traveling to and I give my clients very honest advice. I don't just book your vacation. I worry about you, send you tips on packing, checklists, and make you keep in contact with me (through free apps) so I know you are having a terrific time. And when was the last time a travel agent sent you a nice thank you gift picked out just for you?

And the best part, I charge no planning fees. All I ever ask is that you use your manners. That's it. I get really involved in travel planning for my clients, so I appreciate clients who respect the fact that I am a professional.

I've always believed that travel changes who you are and leaves an impression that lasts a lifetime.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Debra is an excellent travel planner!!!

Reviewed By Rhonda - Carson City, NV | Traveled to
Debra spent many hours planning our vacation in celebration of our daughter's 18th birthday and high school graduation. We traveled to from Reno, NV to Italy, Greece & Turkey for a total of 15 days. From the moment we arrived at the Rome airport, all of Debra's pre-planning kicked into full swing. At the Rome airport, we were greeted by an agent who promptly escorted us to their private car (Mercedes) and took us to our hotel near the Spanish Steps. Debra had arranged a 2-bedroom apartment for our party of 4 in Rome at an amazing location which was close to everything & we felt safe and well cared for. The apartment was beautiful & well-appointed for our party of 4. Debra arranged private tours for us through the Vatican, Colosseum, & other places & even arranged for us to attend the Pope's Papal. This was incredible &, I must say, my favorite part of our entire trip! Debra arranged our cruise out of Rome to other parts of Italy, several islands in Greece & to Turkey. Everything, & I mean EVERYTHING, went off without a hitch. All tours were pre-arranged with private drivers & we were literally treated like royalty by each company Debra selected to be part of our incredible vacation. We were greeted back at the Rome port by the same driver who originally intercepted us from the airport in the beginning of our trip. Debra had emailed me the evening before our final arrival in Rome & informed us of the "correct" airport terminal for our departure out of Rome. Even the driver tried to take us to a different terminal which would have caused us to miss our flight. I re-read Debra's email & instructed the driver to deliver us to the terminal designated by Debra. This information alone was correct & a huge time-saver. Debra went out of her way to make every single part of our vacation magical &, she did this on our budget! She saved us tons of money & we were able to have a top-notch European family
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Debra is Amazing!

Reviewed By Amjad - Dallas/Fort Worth, TX | Traveled to
If I could give Debra 6 stars I would. Her planning was flawless and the whole experience was great from start to finish. Debra is professional, easy to work with, has great communication skills and really keeps you as the priority and center of everything. She has great pointers and doesn't miss any details. She's with you through every step of the way (even up until you get into the plane). She went above and beyond , and we highly recommend her. I'm looking forward to all my vacations and having Debra plan them. She's officially our go-to person when we have any trip.

Turned out well, thanks to Debi

Reviewed By SE - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to
Two days before my trip to Italy I got a blood clot in my leg and the dr. said I couldn't go. Debi had been extremely helpful up to this point, and when I let her know, she became even more supportive. She helped me fill out the insurance papers, checked on my health throughout this mess. It worked out very well, that my niece was able to go on the trip and my money was returned to me in a very short time. I look forward to working with Debi in the future, and hope to be able to take more trips. She was a Godsend in my hour of need.

Awesome Birthday Trip

Reviewed By vwallace - Las Vegas NV | Traveled to
I contacted Debi when I wanted to schedule a trip to Italy for my 50th birthday. She was in constant contact with me and took care of every last detail. She even followed my flights so she knew when I arrived in Italy. She went way above and beyond my expectations. I had an absolutely amazing vacation and I will definitely be contacting her for my next trip.

She was AWESOME!

Reviewed By Marina - New Orleans | Traveled to
There were 13 of us!!! She made planning this trip extremely easy and fun. Debi was with us every step of the way from the initial idea of ..We want to go to New Orleans and have no idea what we want...to sending text messages of what gates we were arriving/connecting with. Even with the time difference, she was always available for questions from anyone of the 13 of us and was very helpful and patient. We are thinking of going on several more trips and will definitely be using Debi for all our travel outings!!!

She is simply the best!

Reviewed By Cindy - Dominican Republic/Punta Cana | Traveled to
Debra was incredible as the place she sent us to! We traveled with another couple to Zoetry for a couple get away. Debra spent many hours, days and weeks finding the perfect place for us to go to. She really worked with the resort as well as us to make everything perfect for our trip. We were treated like kings and queens which was a direct result from Debra and all her hard work. It was a perfect vacation and all the thanks goes to Debra. Can't say enough about Debra and the attention to detail she used in planning our trip. She even sent us places to eat at the airport. She is awesome and will work hard to make your trip spectacular. Thank you Debra we will definitely use you again. Highly recommend!
