Leisure Travel Planner

The idea of travel is seductive.  You see yourself carousing the streets of Paris, tipsy with wine and love.  Or lying sundrenched in the Caribbean sipping native rum and fresh pineapple juice over shaved ice.  The reality of travel is much diferent, and many times trips don't work out the way the traveler wanted them to.

It makes sense when you think about it.  You're transporting your dreams, hopes, wants needs, concerns, and expectations to a part of the world you probably have never been to before.  So many things have to go right for you to have a great and memorable experience.

I make no bones about why I believe most trips don't measure up to what we want them to be.  It's the internet.  I love the internet and use it every day for all the same things you do.  But what I would never do -- and what I don't think anyone should ever do -- is use the internet in place of an experienced travel planner.

Like you, I love travel.  I've been to almost all 50 states (including Hawaii), the Caribbean (Aruba, Grenada, Puerto Rico, all 3 US Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, St. Martin, Dominica, Barbados, Martinique, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Grand Cayman, the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos), Europe (Amsterdam and Paris), the Middle East (Israel and Jorday) and all over Mexico, Canada and even Oceana (Guam, Yap and Palau).

But what I believe makes me unique as a travel planning professional is the way I relate to people and my ability to match a client's needs and wants with the property that is right for them.  I started my career in HR as I loved working with people, but what I discovered I loved most was helping people plan their leisure travel.  That was the beginning of what led me to become a professional travel planner, which has been my sole professional focus since 2012.  

Travel agents are everywhere.  I consider myself a Travel Therapist because I take the time to get to know you and to understand your travel dreams.  Too many websites and travel agents rush into the details.  There's a time for that.  But first, I need to fully understand your deepest travel dreams.  Then I can use my wealth of travel planning experience and resources to make your trip everything you want it to be.

The last thing I want to tell you about me is that while I have planned travel all over the world for clients, I do have a specialty in Caribbean and Mexico travel especially as a destination for Destination Weddings, Honeymoons, Family Vacations and Scuba Diving.  That's my idea of heaven, and I've done a lot of it.  If that's what you're in to, let's get you into travel therapy ASAP and let the journey begin.

Beth is knowledgeable and patient providing a great trip to Africa!

Reviewed By Gail - Indianapolis | Traveled to
Planning a trip to Africa to include a safari should be left to a professional. Beth took it one step further! She was able to coordinate our sightseeing in Cape Town and Safari in Krueger with a group out of Kentucky who actually grew up in Africa. Beth was also sensitive around planning personal time for us to spend with our daughter, working in Cape Town. She provided a perfect balance and was very patient with our multitude of questions and changes!

Simply the best!

Reviewed By Kathy - Gurnee, il | Traveled to
We have worked with Beth in planning three vacations and will continue to in the future! We have made some great memories on a family trip to Sweden and a couple's trip to Turks and Caicos and have another family trip to Norway in July. We love that Beth is so carefully considerate of our preferences and that each trip has been customized and personalized for us which can be a challenge with multi-generational travel. As an added bonus, we have made a great friend!

Incredible service from start to finish!

Reviewed By George and Jacquie - Orlando Florida | Traveled to Mexico
A friend of mine referred me to Beth, as my soon to be wife and I were planning our honeymoon trip. Honestly, we were very confused about where to go and Beth spend the necessary time to understand what we are looking for and then offer a wide variety of selections. She continued to narrow it down until it was the perfect vacation/honeymoon. We couldn't of been more satisfied And the level of service was extraordinary. From two days before the flight, to after we've arrived at our hotel, just constant checking into making sure we were satisfied. The airline even made a mistake with the seating on one of the flights and she handled all that too! I don't think I will ever book another trip by myself. It's so much nicer to have it handled by a pro! Beth, it is our pleasure to write this. Thank you, the Philbecks :)

QUICK AND EASY !!

Reviewed By Jan - Chicago, Il. | Traveled to
When we needed a GREAT GETAWAY with very specific requirements on very short notice, Beth was fabulous!! Not only did she know immediately the resort we needed, but took care of all the details within hours. I was impressed with her choice of options, with clear knowledge of what each would offer us. She made it soooo easy. We had a wonderful vacation, with all that she promised. Beth is professional, efficient, experienced, yet feels like a best friend! I will use her again and would recommend her very highly. Thank you Beth!!
