 Beach Monkey Travel LLC is a company that strives to perfect customer service.

Let me start by saying I have a true passion for helping people. There is nothing I love more than showing someone how they can visit the places and do the things they have always only dreamed about.

I have always been a travel nut, seeing and exploring new surroundings is what recharges my batteries. I want to be able to bring that love of travel to everyone. To often people get lost in the grind of day to day and forget to do something for themselves and their families. I can help you create memories that will last for lifetimes.

Imagine having someone that designs every aspect of your vacation: The research, finding the best price possible, making the reservations for everything down to even your dinner plans. Now imagine that service being FREE! That's right you pay nothing to have your own personal travel concierge.

I give my clients that extra attention and service that they deserve from custom bound itineraries, so that you know exactly what you are doing and when. Up to the minute verification of all arrangements to ensure nothing goes awry. Packing suggestions based on weather reports for your time of travel. This is just a sampling of the many EXTRAS my clients receive.

I have access to perks that you might not be able to get on your own. Wheher its a room upgrade,fee waiver or even reservations to a popular excursions. I also have the ability to enhance your trip with value-added benefits and amenities. Ask me how to make your dream vacation obtainable with a  payment plan.

 

  • Great deals on promotions for 4 & 5 Star Resorts
  • Early booking discounts
  • Payment Plans
  • Special offers on cruises and vacation packages
  • Assistance with travel insurance protection
  • Accommodationsfor people with special needs
  • Passport and Visa application information
  • Vaccination procedures

I treat my clients as if they are family

 

I am that agent that treats your vacation as if it is my own. No stone left unturned and never any hard sell tactics. You know your budget better than anyone and its my job as your concierge to meet those requirements. Beach Monkey Travel is a company founded on Customer Service. We live by it.

Relaxing in Riviera Maya

Reviewed By RelaxMoore - McMurray, PA | Traveled to
I won't vacation without Debbie ever again!! I had been trying to put together a vacation for weeks....rent a house or condo, add flights and rental car. I heard Bubba on the Star 100.7 morning show talk about how easy it was to book through BeachMonkeyTravel.com. I checked out the website and immediately emailed then called her. I told her what I was looking to do and by that night, we had booked our all inclusive vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico! I couldn't beat the price....and ALL food and adult drinks are INCLUDED!!!! I have a teenage boy,,,,this is a HUGE savings!! Debbie was the most responsive, helpful person I have ever met! She even helped recommend the best excursions for us. Although I know it's not true, I felt like I was her only client!! We received our 'goody bag' from Debbie last week with our itinerary. It's so exciting to know everything has been booked and handled! Debbie is only a phone call away if I have any questions or concerns. Since my booking, I've heard many, many testimonials on the radio, and I, too, have recommended Beach Monkey Travel to my friends.

Disney Trip

Reviewed By Britney - PA | Traveled to
I heard about Beach monkey through the Bubba show on 100.7 Star. My husband and I decided we were going to take the kids on a last minute Disney trip (literately in 3 weeks). I called Debbie around 830pm. And shortly later the trip was booked. She tried multiple avenues to get the best deal for our family. I called her back probably about 10 times with additional questions and she always knew the answer. I highly recommend doing business with her! She was great and past and always willing to help with any questions!

Excellent Service

Reviewed By Jhixen - Canonsburg, PA | Traveled to
Debbie at Beach Monkey Travel has been amazing. This was our first time using a travel agent, as I usually book our excursions on my own, and I could not be happier. We chose to go through an agent because this was our first time with international travel. She made the entire booking process easy and seamless. She has been very attentive to our needs and desires for this trip. She has done an excellent job to take care of all of the intricate details to make this trip enjoyable and exciting. I will definitely be booking more trips through Debbie at Beach Monkey Travel in the future. I have already refer her to several friends.

Couldnt ask for better

Reviewed By Cindy Lax - Somerset, Pa | Traveled to
I messaged Debbie at Beach Monkey Travel about a special they where advertising. I had a response within 5 minutes. I asked for help and pricing on booking a cruise and I had information delivered to my email within the hour. Every question or concern that I had was answered professionally. But I think the thing that stands out the most to me was the way I was treated. I felt as if I was very important to her, not just another sale. She was so kind and patient with me with the amount of questions I had. I have never done a cruise before. Not only was she knowledgeable but very kind. We were literally on the phone over an hour and she put my mind to rest. I cant say enough about her. She is my go to person from here out.

Reviewed By Jan C - Pittsburgh | Traveled to
I have never dealt with anyone that was so friendly and helpful. I wanted to surprise my hubby with a cruise for our anniversary. I found Debbie actually on Facebook. From the initial call she has made this as amazing experience. She showed me ways to save on our trip and you don't get that very often. I actually just got in the mail today a custom itinerary, my goodness there is so much helpful stuff in here. I can't wait to go. I would recommend her to anyone I know.

You're better off going through someone else/yourself

Reviewed By Irrelevant - Pittsburgh | Traveled to
I expressed up front that I would be celebrating my birthday on my own. The resort she set me up with is over an hour from Punta Cana which I was not aware of (the area is extremely boring and outdated) and meant for families/is extremely low key. At no point was I suggested to stay elsewhere that would make more sense for those exact reasons. (Adults only/good for solo travelers) The resort charges $15 extra per day for wifi which is only able to be accessed in one room/is not reliable) While I gave a budget I was working with, it would have been more cost efficient to stay elsewhere for an additional cost that already includes the wifi. At no point was that suggested either. She claimed she stayed there which leads me to believe she withheld the condition of this particular resort. She did the absolute bare minimum to resolve my issues and took to responsibility.

One of a kind

Reviewed By Steph1010 - Cranberry | Traveled to
Debbie (Beach Monkey Travel) came very highly recommended. She certainly did not disappoint. We had a very large group and many different personalities. Debbie was patient, kind and understanding with each person. She made suggestions on how to save money and went up and above the call of duty. Sure you can book online but I assure you I will never book my own trip again. Her knowledge and expertise guided us to the perfect destination for a great price and we had an amazing time. Give her call you will see what true customer service is.

She is pleasant to talk with making me so happy and so looking foward to my much needed vacation. I would tell everyone wanting to book a vacation to call Debbie.

Wonderful Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Lauren - Pittsburgh, PA | Traveled to
I heard about Beach Monkey Travel from Bubba on Star 100.7. I hadn't had much luck with other agents in the area being very interested in taking the time to assist me or take time to find options to meet what I told them I am looking for. Debbie immediately answered my email and provided me with numerous options. None were in my budget range, but she didn't give up, unlike the previous agents. She found an amazing vacation that matched my budget and interests. I am so thankful I was listening to the station that day and decided to reach out to her!
