Incentive, Group, Romance, Family & Luxury Travel

I feel so fortunate to be a specialist in the leisure travel industry.  For the past 13 years, I have had the great privilege of helping plan trips for couples, families & groups which allow them to create amazing memories that last forever.

GROUPS:  Incentive travel, President's Club, Corporate Retreats, Family Reunions, Destination Weddings are all groups that require special handling.  Does your group require/need a contract?  Can you get a rebate on your travel for being a group leader?  What amenities can the vendor provide to make your travel event even more special?  The answers to these questions and more can only be provided by a group specialist and I would love to help you with these and other issues related to your group.

ROMANCE:  Whether it is a Destination Wedding or Honeymoon that starts a couple's life together, or 25th Anniversary trip to renew their vows, nothing creates a bond like going on a travel adventure.  Romance travel has been a specialty for mine for the past 8 years and I have even sat on the Romance Travel Advisory Board to help shape their curriculum.  These years of experience allow me to help my clients find the perfect romantic trip that is just right for them.

FAMILY:  I know from experience how important it is to plan the right family vacation.  From a single family going on Spring Break to a multi-generational family cruise, traveling together provides the opportunities to expand horizons and see other cultures together while getting closer as a group.  Laughing and sharing experiences will never be forgotten.  Families often celebrate special milestones together by taking a trip to commemorate their anniversary, retirement, graduation or special birthday...I know how to provide that certain something to help you make that important trip stand out!

LUXURY:  Providing luxury travel experiences, including planning luxury cruises, river cruises, and independent European trips, has been a hallmark of mine for many years.  I have had many opportunities over the years to work with luxury-oriented clients and even experience this sort of travel myself.  And, while our agency prides itself on offering white-glove, concierge service to all of our guests, those client's with discriminating tastes will not be disappointed in our commitment to providing the highest level of customer service.

Being a travel agency owner has provided me the occasion to contribute articles and provide commentary to print and online publications such as Wedding Day Magazine, North Magazine, Luxury Travel Advisor, Bankrate Business Insider, the South Florida Sun Sentinel and the Indianapolis Star Newspaper, among a few...

Finally, I am happy and excited to utilize my passion and expertise in planning, organizing and providing excellent customer service to create amazing one-of-a-kind trips for you, your friends, family or group.  I also continue to be committed to travel the world in search of new experiences for you - much to my husband's chagrin..:-)

Adventure Planning

Reviewed By Karen K - Carmel IN | Traveled to England ~ Europe
I met Melisa Keiser of the Carmel Travel Co several years ago when we were both volunteers for our local library, a good sign I feel. Since then Melisa had planned several of my vacations. All of these trips have been wonderful with no glitches or surprises. On our trip I got bumped up to business class on the flight. I did not think that occurred any more.

I truly appreciate her attention to every detail: hotel selections, connections to and from airport, flight times and seat choices. Nothing is left to chance. For someone like me who can be a bit apprehensive about traveling it is so nice not to have to worry about these details. I can just enjoy the trip!

I also truly enjoy Melisa’s upbeat attitude and suggestions for travel destinations. I feel as if I have a good friend helping me plan my adventures.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Exceptional Service!

Reviewed By Heather - Carmel, IN | Traveled to France ~ Europe
Melisa Keiser is exceptional! Her personal service and attention to details is outstanding. Melisa has planned several trips for our friends, family and larger groups for us. Most recently she planned our family spring break trip, took care of all the details and kept us informed every step of the way. We were also a part of a big Spring Break group the previous year and we were so relieved that she handled everything for us because the number of people involved was overwhelming. Having Melisa take care of things allowed me to enjoy the trip instead of working on all the administrative & travel-related details! She also arranged for a special amenity in our room!
Another recent trip we took was a group river cruise that was well-researched and planned. From the plane trip, the transfer to the river cruise ship, the cruise itself and post-cruise train to Paris, Paris stay and transfer to Paris airport, it was all perfectly executed. Would recommend Melisa to anyone planning a trip!

Weight off our shoulders

Reviewed By Pam - Charlotte, NC | Traveled to Mexico Hawaii
Ms. Keiser had planned 2 wonderful vacations for my family and I. Feeling stressed an overwhelmed from trying to plan a vacation myself, I reached out to her for some expertise. She promptly provided several different options based on our tastes and budget for us to choose from. Each place surpassed our expectations and allowed us to truly enjoy our hard earned vacation. Each trip was carefully planned and executed with no problems. She very clearly explained every step of our trip. Ms. Keiser worked diligently at re-routing our entire trip when we were relocated unexpectedly. I didn't have to lift a finger to have all of our flights rebooked. What a relief! I can't wait to work with Ms. Keiser again, soon!

Best Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Leah - Indianapolis, IN | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
Melisa is the most patient, knowledgeable and attentive travel agent!! She has been my travel agent for many, many years. Not only will she research and book properties, look into local excursions and book, arrange transfers, document specific hours to be on a plane in the air, reminds of payment due a week out, says good-bye in an email and asks how trip was once home but she also sends the most simplistic emails with all the documented information needed.

Working with Melisa is as entertaining as the trip at times!

I also love that she travels often so she knows and understands many destinations and really tries to pinpoint what elements of the trip are more important than others to her clients.

I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Melisa L. Keiser responded:
Dear Leah - It is always my pleasure to work with you! You are just a delight. Your trips are so fun to plan and I hope we can plan for many more in the future. Sincerely, Melisa
