Family Vacations Expert

The life-long memories that you create are the best part of a family vacation. That's why I take my job as a family vacation travel planner very seriously. I help you confirm all of the essential details of your trip, plus introduce you to experiences that you may not even have known were possible, things like fly-fishing and horseback riding in Colorado, snorkeling with dolphins in the Caribbean or dog sledding in Alaska.

In my 35 years as a travel advisor, I've visited several Caribbean islands and resort destinations in Mexico. I strongly believe in keeping up with new developments in the travel industry and have embraced the certification program. I have earned dozens of certifications for Caribbean and Mexico destinations, resorts and cruise lines.

One of my strengths in the travel business is being able to match families with the hotel or resort that best suits their needs. In many cases, I'll recommend an all-inclusive resort. This takes a lot of the stress out of the vacation, since you know upfront what you'll be paying for food, activities and entertainment. Plus, you don't have to worry about where you're going to eat, how to get their, where to park and whether they take credit cards.

Although I specialize in family vacations, I am also experienced in planning destination weddings, particularly at Caribbean resorts and on cruise ships.

I'd love to help you with your next vacation. To get started making your own family travel memories, contact me today.

Sarah, help! We want to go to..........!

Reviewed By Barbara - Manassas, VA | Traveled to Baltic Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Since about 2001 Sarah has taken care of the details involved for about 16 cruises for us, mainly in the Caribbean, but also one to Alaska and one to ports around the Baltic Sea. She has also put together two bus tours, one in the U.S. (Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, Utah, Grand Canyon and Las Vegas), and one around Ireland. We simply give her our desired destination and dates we want to travel, and she takes care of everything at no cost to us! Her services have included plane, ship, bus tours, and hotel reservations. The cruises included 3 for our entire family (9 people), so there was extra work involved with those. We always get travel insurance, and that saved us $6,000 one time when we had to cancel a trip to Europe for medical reasons less than a week before we were to begin. We are always welcome to stop by her office and chat about travel ideas. She has helped us a great deal since we first met her, and we will continue to work with her as we plan a major trip once a year.

We travel the world with The Travel Place

Reviewed By Goodlife - Centreville, VA | Traveled to Europe
With Sarah’s assistance, we’ve toured the world - Egypt, China, Europe, S.America, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Israel & Jordan. Sarah makes all our arrangements and keeps us informed prior to & during our trip. One time our flight was cancelled due to weather & Sarah had already scheduled another flight before we knew about the cancellation. Sarah is an excellent travel agent! She is professional, always courteous, and very responsive to phone calls. My wife and I enjoy working with Sarah and appreciate everything that she does to make our trips successful.

A true professional

Reviewed By Bill - Gainesville Va | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
Sarah
When booking a trip or requesting information on a place we think we would like to travel to Sarah goes above what on would expect from a travel professional. We have used her for booking trips for just my wife and myself along with groups I have put together. Sarah has always been a true professional. If any problem has arisen she was always available to fix the problem no matter how large or small the problem was. Just recently we booked a cruise with Sarah and it took longer then I expected due to the cruise company not understanding what Sarah was trying to communicate. She took well over an hour but got the issue resolved and got us and another couple the rooms we wanted. When looking for a travel consultant who goes above and beyond what one expects then Sarah is your person. We will continue to use Sarah for a very long time.She is a true professional.

Vacation adventures

Reviewed By Patti - Manassas, VA | Traveled to Caribbean
Sarah has been helping us plan our travel adventures for many years. She usually helps us plan 2 - 3 trips a year and she is amazing to work with. Sarah is an expert in every aspect of the travel industry. She is very knowledgeable about cruising, all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, Hawaii, Disney World and many other U.S. destinations. She can work magic with airline reservations. Most often we travel as a family of 13, leaving from 3 different airports. She always manages to find flights where we arrive at our destination at the same time. She is very conscientious, ensuring that our frequent flyer miles are credited and that our TSA pre-approval is entered. She is very friendly and most generous with her time. She never makes you feel rushed and returns phone calls and emails promptly. She goes out of her way to learn what you like, which is a great help in planning our trips. Her clients are very important to her and she makes every effort to ensure our vacations are perfect.
