Janet has been amazing to work with! We scheduled our trip(s) during hurricane season and she was able to help us get one cancelled and the next one rolling! We had a bit of an upset with our room on day 1 and Janet took it into her hands at 8 pm to take care of it for us!! Definitely will use her again and again!!

We had fun

Reviewed By Gang - NC | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
The resort was wonderful. But the transportation was a night mare. We had one in our party getting there a day offer us and leaving a day before us. She had her on the list to be picked up when we were arriving and leaving. She was very scared arriving in a Foreign country by herself with no transportation
Like we were told she would have.
Janet Caraker responded:
I am so glad you had a great time but really hate to hear about the transportation problems. We authorized a refund for Jamie's transfers. As we discussed earlier, mistakes can happen but since she re-verified her return time and they still didn't show up, that is unacceptable. I've never had issues with TraficTours for transportation and will be speaking with their management team about this problem. Thank you for letting me know! Janet Caraker, CTC Island Jack's Travel

All fun and No Worries

Reviewed By Aneesah - aneesahrashid@gmail.com | Traveled to
Janet made everything so simple. We told her what we wanted and she made it happen. From flights to booking the resort it was all a breeze. All that we had to do was show up and enjoy ourselves. I am currently planning a trip for next year and I'm hoping I can work with Janet again in the near future.

She planned our amazing trip with ease

Reviewed By The Powells - Virginia | Traveled to
Janet was one of the best travel agents I have dealt with. She handled the planning of my destination wedding professionally and made it easy for me and all my guests to book which allowed us to enjoy the trip and not get wrapped up in all the details. We were able to book the trip well in advance to allow guests to make a deposit and then have monthly payments to pay off the trip. This was a huge help for all of my guests and they commented on how easy the process was and how helpful Janet was answering any questions they had in a timely manner. She also made sure I connected with the onsite wedding coordinator at the resort to finalize details of my wedding day. She also helped us plan an excursion to Oro Nightclub and took care of all of the booking and payments. Prior to leaving on the trip, Janet provided a very detailed itinerary and a "Things to know before you go". This was extremely helpful as we prepared to leave for the trip. This is what i call going above and beyond with customer service. Thank you Island Jack Travel for making my dream destination wedding a fairy tale come true. I recommend Island Jack for all of your travel needs and I would definitely utilize them again for future trips.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

You are so kind!! I loved your group. They were a joy to work with. I would have loved to have been able to go to your wedding myself. I really appreciate the referral you gave me for the Howard Vow Renewal. Looking forward to hearing about that trip too! Janet Caraker, CTC Island Jack's Travel

Perfect to the last detail

Reviewed By Sunny - St. Louis | Traveled to
I was referred to Janet by a close friend who always uses her agency for travel. She asked me a lot of questions so she could get a feel for what we wanted. Our budget was a little tight but Janet somehow managed to find a great deal for our trip and it was absolutely perfect! We booked early enough to be able to book with just a deposit and then we made payments when we could. Janet also suggested that we let our family and friends know that we were registered with Island Jack's Travel so they could give us a gift by making a small payment on our honeymoon. We were so happy and pleased that several of our friends and family gave amounts of $25 - $100. Janet made it very easy to do this and we really appreciated the extra help. We owed a lot less than we thought at the end! We went to Sanctuary Cap Cana and it was even more beautiful and romantic than I thought we could afford. We probably would have spent the same amount of money at Myrtle Beach and it would not have been near as romantic. Thank you Janet! We will be in touch soon to start planning our first anniversary!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Janet Caraker responded:
It is fun for me when I see that your honeymoon dollars go further than you think it will. What a great deal you got!! I remember how excited I was when I saw that. So glad we could pull it off for you. Looking forward to working on that anniversary trip! Janet Caraker, CTC Island Jack's Travel

Couldn't have done this honeymoom without her!!!

Reviewed By Jess - Sikeston, Missouri | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
I am a non-experienced traveler and I'm very frugal. Janet was so patient in pricing options, so Diligent, and so helpful from early early planning to travel detours and delays! She never made me feel like a bother, and was personal yet professional!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Janet Caraker responded:
You are so sweet! I am so glad everything turned out well for your honeymoon in Jamaica. I contacted the concierge at the resort to let them know about what happened to you. I hope they gave you an extra special welcome when you arrived on Saturday! Thank you so much for trusting me to book your honeymoon. Looking forward to your next trip! Janet

Amazing trip booked by an amazing travel agent

Reviewed By Trek P - Virginia | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Janet is absolutely the best travel agent I have ever worked with. She makes your trip simple and seamless from the time of booking all the way until you return. She makes sure what once we are in vacation we don't have anything to worry about. For this last trip I especially loved the trip app that had all of our documents for the trip in one location. When you travel with Island Jack you will never have to worry about anything. I would highly recommend you book Janet as your travel agent for any of your travel needs. She is the absolute best. Thank you for making our vacations the best!
