Sara Locke

Goffstown, New Hampshire Travel Agent

Vacationisms Worldwide Travel, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Luxury, Corporate & Destination Wedding Guru

I got into this business because I wanted to do it better. Four years ago, I had three unpleasant experiences with other agents and I knew there had to be a better way. Today, we are a multi-million dollar travel company with four distinct brands under BookBetterTravel.com.

For me? I still love the romance side. I've helped over 100 couples (and their combined 700+ guests) plan destination weddings. Bringing a couple's dreams to life in an easy, effective, and totally memorable way is my true passion. 

Similarly, I love working with couples eyeball deep in wedding plans, whose brains are so fried that the thought honeymoon planning can bring on tears. For the 300+ honeymoons I have planned, the goal is simple: plan the perfect, hassle-free getaway to leave all the wedding stress behind and remember the whole point of the wedding: to begin their lives together.

For me, destination wedding planning has translated into a unique skill set for many group trips whether it be school trips, incentive trips, retreats, meetings and conferences, family reunions, golf club trips, or something different. I am highly organized and experienced to help my clients find their best destination and plan amazing events.

Of course, this all started with planning family vacations – and I still love it just as much as I did at the beginning. As someone who had never left the country as a kid and has now filled a passport, I am very aware of the value that memorable family vacations hold. Travel is indisputably beneficial to everyone, for various reasons. Whether you are an experienced travel, or brand new, I love to help you find new places explore – with the best value that can be found. 

Hear From Some of My Clients:

"I called before I proposed. We wanted a destination wedding, but didn't know where to start. Sara was great! We pulled it off over only a 5 month engagement – and it was amazing." Tim

"My wife banned me from planning our honeymoon. I 'saved thousands' on our last vacation, but really I just booked a crappy resort. It was nothing next to what Sara recommended. We had an great time and owe it to her." Ben

"An employee retreat was just what we needed to grow our engagement. Sara made it easy, cost effective and seamless." Chris

"Our last incentive trip was the first time we didn’t plan it – and it was our employees’ favorite trip!" Kelley

"Sara is more than a travel agent – she took the time to get to know us. I highly recommend her!" Carol

Don't book your own trips.

Reviewed By Ben - Milwaukee, WI | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
My sister referred me to Vacationisms because my fiancee wouldn't let me plan our honeymoon alone... Something about how I screwed up our last trip? Well, I'm glad I called. They planned the best honeymoon we could have imagined and thought of all the details I've never considered in the past.

Sara was so good to us - we had no idea what we wanted, and she patiently got to know us to make recommendations. In the end, she sent us on a fabulous Costa Rica honeymoon and we couldn't have done it without her!

Amazing service!

Reviewed By Ellyn B - Manchester, NH | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Our family cruise was amazing. We were 12 people all together and Sara from Vacationisms made sure everyone was happy and all 100 plus questions were answered before we left. It didn't even matter how silly the questions were, or what time the questions were thrown at her - she was there.

Sara personally delivered our luggage tags and pertinent information, and again went over any details (more questions). We had a slight delay returning from Orlando and when we called Sara, she was monitoring our flight, and already knew.

We all arrived home to different cities, smiling and happy...Sara called to make sure that we arrived home safety and to ask about our time. Where else can you get such amazing, personal service?

Reviewed By Mrs.Wornham - Milford, NH | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Sara is your dream travel consultant! She has a go get it attitude mixed with a no BS mentality which I appreciate when booking travel. She gets you the upgrades and addresses any concerns with swift action. She is super knowledgeable about all the resorts and has great connections that make your experience a VIP one. In my opinion there is no other way to travel other then traveling with Sara and Vacationisms!

Sara is the best!

Reviewed By Tim - Flower Mound, TX | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
I called Sara before I even proposed. We knew we wanted to do a destination wedding, but had no idea where to start. Sara was so great at giving me the entire rundown on what to expect before I pulled the trigger. We pulled off the entire planning process in 5 months - and it was seamless. I highly recommend working with Sara!

Don't try to book your own destination wedding.

Reviewed By Sarah - Westborough, MA | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
I thought it would be a great idea to handle it myself – but I was so wrong. I called Vacationisms after having booked our wedding because it took less than a month for the whole thing to become absurdly complicated. Our travel agent was able to get the wedding transferred and take over all of the minutia for me. My guests love my agent and she made it so easy for all of us. Our wedding would not have been so streamlined if I had continued handling it myself. These guys are the real deal.

Perfect wedding!

Reviewed By Bri - Boston, MA | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Sara saved my LIFE! I was so overwhelmed when I found Vacationisms, I wasn't even excited for my own wedding anymore. She was so patient with me and so thorough in her recommendations, it turned the entire process around. It took only a week for us to pick the perfect resort, get the contract, and get this wedding booked. She has been crazy responsive and their whole team has been there for us every step of the way.

Stress-free, Hassle-free, amazing trip!

Reviewed By Lyndsay - Manchester, NH | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Working with Sara and Vactionisms is like taking a vacation in it of itself! I didn't know how stress free vacation planning could be until I let her take the reins! She was patient with me which is a gift because I can be picky and difficult when parting with any large sum of cash! She got us the best deal on our vacation, and has been notifying me of free upgrades and awesome amenities every since booking! You definitely get more bang for your buck when traveling with Vactionisms, and I highly recommend trusting Sara to do the planning!

Easy, peasy.

Reviewed By Janika - Chicago, IL | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
I met Sara in 2015 when she planned my trip to the Dominican Republic! She worked with my budget and incorporated everything I had in mind for my vacation! She's very detail oriented and she adept to tailoring your vacation to you! Unlike other travel agents I encountered, Sara was truly there to give a pleasurable experience! She definitely has a customer for life!!! Not because I absolutely hate planning, but because she plans excellently!!!

Best honeymoon EVER.

Reviewed By Shawna - Manchester, NH | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
Working with Sara at Vactionisms for our honeymoon was amazing! We were connected through David's Bridal who highly recommended her company. Sara went through ups and downs with us and was able to find the perfect honeymoon destination! Sara gave me insight and updates during the Zika virus outbreak because we were honeymooning in the Caribbean. Sara was also able to help us with the payment process just as well as she helped us with the planning process. We are definitely going to use Sara and Vactionisms again for our future trips!

Hurricane Matthew problems - Sara is fantastic!

Reviewed By Sarah - Tewksbury, MA | Traveled to Grenada ~ Caribbean
I can't say enough about how great Sara was to work with. She helped us plan our dream honeymoon and she answered all the questions we had along the way. Furthermore, she continued to monitor our flight so when it was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew, she was on the phone and got us booked with a different airline so we wouldn't miss out on our honeymoon. She even coordinated with our resort to switch our days a bit due to the hurricane as well. From start to end, Sara was there to help ensure we had the honeymoon of our dreams. We were so pleased with her services, I recommended my brother to her and she's now booked his honeymoon as well! Don't hesitate at all to reach out to Sara. She truly is there to help make your travel wishes come true!

Perfect honeymoon!

Reviewed By Carol - Manchester, NH | Traveled to
I came across Sara Locke's business card while sitting in the waiting area of a local day spa that I frequent. It turns out that we are both customers of the spa. I was just starting to plan my honeymoon and thought that I would reach out. From the very beginning Sara was nothing but personable and professional. She helped me to lock down our honeymoon location after asking a couple of questions. She even helped us to book excursions for our trip. During our travels we ran into a couple of hiccups with delays and such. Sara reached out to us (she had been monitoring our flight times from home!) to see if there was anything she could do to help us out. After missing our first day of our trip due to flight delays, at our request Sara booked us an extra night and changed our flights. She even gifted us some of her Hilton Honors points for the hotel! When we returned home we found waiting for us a wedding gift that Sara had sent us (a personalized plaque with our last name). Sara is more than just a travel agent. She took the time to really get to know us and stayed in touch every step of the way. The wedding gift and the gifting of her Hilton points was such a pleasant and generous surprise as well. I highly recommend working with Sara on your honeymoon travel details.
