Hollie Holmes

South Elgin, Illinois Travel Agent

An independent agent with Family Focus Travel, Inc. in Wheaton, IL, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Mexico, Caribbean, & Disney Specialist

When you want to plan a trip for your family, there's no better place than the happiest place on earth — Walt Disney World!

There's nothing like experiencing the magic for yourself, and seeing the smile on your family's faces as they approach Cinderella's Castle.
I would know, as:

  • I have been to these amazing parks and resorts more than 15 times.
  • I am Disney specialist and a College of Disney graduate.
  • I also worked for the company in the past — making me an expert unlike any other.

In addition to planning wonderful family trips to Disney World, I also specialize in Mexico, the Caribbean and U.S. travel.


I am a certified Hawaii specialist through the Hawaiian Tourist Board, and have traveled to this tropical paradise several times. One of those trips was a working vacation in which I spent seven days explore four Hawaiian islands with different travel professionals. We toured more than 30 different resorts, so I now know exactly where to send my clients when they tell me what they want out of their dream vacation to Hawaii.


I have a reputation for booking the best prices available for my clients, and I love every new challenge that comes my way.


The most unique trip I planned was a honeymoon that lasted for three weeks. The couple began their adventure in Hawaii, and then traveled over to Tahiti where I had booked them an over water bungalow. After Tahiti, they traveled to Australia and enjoyed several different excursions.


I learned so much by researching these destinations, and was able to help them plan the trip of a lifetime. I want to give you the ultimate travel experience.
Contact me today to plan your next big adventure.

Why I love my job

Walt Disney World
Walt Disney World

One of the things I love most about travel is the opportunity to experience other cultures and immerse yourself in their traditions. I get so excited when a client comes to me and wants to book a trip to a destination I have never been to. I enjoy researching new places and finding the best deals for my clients.

Awesome Family vacation thanks to Holly!

Reviewed By Geri - Palatine IL | Traveled to Mexico
Hollie was great to work with! We were referred to her by a friend when we had come up empty looking for a vacation ourselves. We had some tough requirements to meet, including less than 3 weeks notice before we wanted to leave. Holly was diligent in looking for something and ultimately came up with an option we were super happy with. Upon arrival at our resort, we ran into a problem with our room. We reached out to Holly and she was all over it - problem solved with virtually no effort on our part. She is knowledgeable and very professional - wish we would have found her sooner!!

Our Honeymoon-12 years later!

Reviewed By Kory C. - South Elgin, IL | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
My husband and I never were able to go on a honeymoon so 12 years and three kids later and with the help of Hollie we finally decided to just go!

Hollie made everything so easy for us. We had no destination in mind, our only criteria that we shared with her was white sandy beaches, in the Caribbean, all inclusive, non-stop flights and sometime in the month of June.

Within a day she had 3-4 possible destinations and resorts for us to choose from. From there all we had to do was decide where we wanted to go!

That was it! We had an excellent experience working with Hollie and will be contacting her for future trips for sure.

She knows her stuff

Reviewed By Gimmlette - Wheaton, IL | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Hollie has been incredibly helpful in putting together a trip to Walt Disney World. The trip involves a number of my friends who live in the US and Canada and she's navigated all the things necessary to get people from where they are to Orlando. She's priced the trip every which way from Sunday to help people get the best deals they can. She's looked into everything we could possibly want to do and then found more. Although our trip isn't until October, I know we are going to have a phenomenally good time. I was going to do all the pricing for the group myself, but there is no way I could have come close to Hollie's knowledge and excitement about Disney. I will use Hollie again for any trip which involves flying, room, admission. She's great.

Blown Away!

Reviewed By Jamie - South Elgin, IL | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Hollie was an incredible help in planning our first vacation out of the country. I gave her a list of things I wanted and didn't want and my budget and she sent me several choices that would fit well with our needs. The resort we went to was not only beautiful and relaxing but was also everything we wanted and more! Working with Hollie was extremely easy, she always responded promptly and answered any questions that we had. She is attentive and thorough and clearly loves what she does. I will always come to Hollie with all of my travel needs!

Honeymoon Bliss

Reviewed By Ashley R. - Chicago,Il | Traveled to Riviera Nayarit ~ Mexico ~ Mexico
She was absolutely amazing!!! I can't explain to you how easy she made this for us! She answered EVERY question we had. Her punctuality, patience and information were always spot on even while we were trying to figure out what would be best and bringing additional options out of nowhere. She never made it seem like we were difficult to work with, although I felt like we were. Although we have never met or even talked on the phone I always felt like you were being patient, polite, and flexible. We do hang around a lot of couples that love to travel and I am recommending her to them. Thank you so so so much!

Hawaii Vacation for 7

Reviewed By Mark - Winfield, IL | Traveled to
Typically I don't use travel services as I travel a lot for business and typically know my best options for any place we are traveling. But in this case, using Hollie to support the planning of a larger group was very useful. Its difficult to coordinate more than one family traveling on a vacation together and Hollie did a great job dealing with all the coordination. I would use this service again and recommend Hollie as a great representation of the service. Mark Russell

Great experience!

Reviewed By Mary - Naperville, Illinois | Traveled to
We booked our Honeymoon with Hollie! This is the first time we've used a travel agent and I don't think we will ever book another trip without one! Hollie was patient with all of our questions. She found many different offers/ places she thought we would enjoy! She knew so much about each place and was able to help us narrow down and choose a location and resort. We cannot wait to travel to St. Lucia in July! :)

Every detail gets taken care of!!

Reviewed By RW - Chicago, IL | Traveled to
We have been using Hollie as our only travel expert for many years! She is super helpful and extremely knowledgeable! She has expertise is making sure every detail is taken care of and I don't ever have a concern that something got missed. I will never use a discount site to book travel when Hollie's experience and help is worth so much to me. There is no additional fee to use her services versus booking travel yourself-but with Hollie you get piece of mind that everything will be perfect! I highly recommend Hollie as an expert in her field and am happy to refer clients to her because she treats everyone with professionalism and courtesy!
