Corporate Travel Management Expert

My wife got into this business because she wanted to do it better. Four years ago, we had three unpleasant experiences with other agents and she 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 love the corporate side. I've helped over 50 companies (and their combined 10,000+ employees) plan seemless business trip, meetings, events and conferences. Bringing a company's business to life in an easy, effective, and totally memorable way is my true passion. 

Similarly, I love working with corporate executives eyeball deep in business plans, whose brains are so fried that the thought of travel planning can bring on tears. For the 1,000+ business trips I have planned, the goal is simple: plan the perfect, hassle-free trip to raise your return on investment.

For me, corporate travel 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 we still love it just as much as we 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 traveler, or brand new, I'd love to help you find new places explore – with the best value that can be found. 

Hear From My Clients:

"Our relationship with David has quickly shown the difference between having an annual conference, and having an annual conference that everyone wants to go to." Calvin

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

"David is great at working within our budget and incorporating the details that make our executives travel plans easy. Unlike other travel agents we have encountered, David truly there to give you the best experience!" Julia

"David and his consultants are more than travel agents – they are actual humans, that treat their clients like humans, too. Could we book our own business travel? Sure, we used to. After working with TWT? Never again." Carol

David is amazing

Reviewed By Lindzi - Boston, MA | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
In the past, I have hated traveling – I feel very out of control about the entire process, and the stay never calms me. It took just one trip for David to make me a client for life. He planned my entire itinerary exactly as requested, thought of details I didn’t and electronically held my hand the whole time. It was a game-changer.

Large family, multiple cities, hassle free!

Reviewed By Ellyn B - Manchester, NH | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Our family cruise was amazing. We were 12 people all together and David 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 him - he was there.

David 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 David, she was monitoring our flight, and already knew.

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

Best agent, ever.

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

Don't book your own vacation!

Reviewed By Lyndsay W - Nashua, NH | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
David is your dream travel consultant! He has a go get it attitude mixed with a no BS mentality which I appreciate when booking travel. He gets you the upgrades and addresses any concerns with swift action. He 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 David and Vacationisms!

I'll never call anyone else.

Reviewed By Amy - Boston, MA | Traveled to Los Cabos ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico
We have been planning our ladies retreats with David for three years now – and what a lifesaver he has been! Dave handles all of the details that, quite frankly, I don’t have the time or patience for.

AMAZING vacation!

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