All-inclusive Resort & Luxury Travel Specialist

Traveling has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I always find myself daydreaming about my next trip — imagining where I might go, who I may meet along the way and what experiences I will encounter when I'm abroad.

I believe my most important job as a travel agent is to provide my own travelers with these same amazing opportunities. I use my professional experience and my personal knowledge to provide them with expert recommendations for their next trip.

I specialize in the following types of travel experiences:

  • All-inclusive resort vacations — All-inclusive resorts are often the perfect escape from the gray days of winter or the doldrums of everyday life. I am familiar with luxury resorts in every destination you can imagine, but my favorite places to recommend include the U.S. Virgin Islands, Belize, Puerto Rico and St. Lucia.
  • Luxury travel — I believe that luxury travel is defined by everything going exactly as planned, and every aspect of the trip exceeds the clients' expectations. Luxury means different things to different people. For one person, a luxury experience may be staying in the best room in the hotel that offers panoramic vistas. Another person may define luxury as a private tour along the rugged coast of Ireland. Regardless of your vision for luxury, I am committed to bringing it to life.

For the last three years, I have expanded my professional network and connected with the most respected and reliable suppliers in the industry. I only work with those who have a reputation for excellence, and who fulfill their promises to deliver a high-quality experience for my travelers from start to finish. This gives my clients the confidence they need to embark on new and exciting adventures with the people they love the most.

Now is the best time to begin planning your dream vacation. Contact me today, and we can turn those dreams into your reality.

Memorable Vacation in Belize

Reviewed By Retha - Columbus, GA | Traveled to Ambergris Caye ~ Belize ~ Central America
Julie handled arrangements for a trip to Belize for my husband and me. She provided excellent service in meeting our travel needs and expectations with a personable and professional approach. This included gathering details about the type of trip and location we were seeking, vacation activities we enjoy, budget considerations, etc. Julie paid close attention to travel logistics, including a local flight to the island of Ambergris Caye, taxi shuttles to and from the resort and reserving a golf cart, (standard transportation on the island). We were extremely pleased with the resort she booked. It was exactly as we had hoped. Our condo overlooked the Caribbean Sea and the resort had a triple-level pool and fine restaurant. We traveled to a pristine beach by golf cart and were near departure points for snorkeling, sunset cruising and other water activities. We would trust Julie to handle future travel for us and recommend her as a travel agent who can deliver a memorable vacation.

relaxing vacation

Reviewed By summer fun - Appleton | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
When planning our trip we did not have a spot picked out so we throw a bunch of different ideas out to Julia along with things we wanted and things we did not want. Julie was very friendly and caring, took our ideas and concerns and gave us a list of places that met our needs. Then helped us start sorting out the best place for us.
We were very happy with our vacation and will go back to Julie for our next vacation.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Proof you should use a Travel Agent

Reviewed By Diane - Menasha | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Julie did a great job putting our trip together and following through. Two months before our trip was to depart, I insisted on changing the flight portion of our packaged trip to direct flights. Julie patiently researched and delivered options for my late request and booked my preference. Unfortunately, due to circumstances completely out of her control, our flights did not go as well as we had expected. Cancelled, and delayed flights on both the outbound and return completely interrupted our trip. We lost an entire day on the beach and spent literally 3 full days of our 7 day trip in route to and from our destination. Julie was on top of it through the entire duration. She kept us updated and made adjustments wherever she could. Fortunately, I had purchased Travel Insurance. Upon my return, Julie already had the clam started for our interrupted travel. I have always been an advocate for using a Travel Agent, Julie proved my confidence in this belief.
Julie Arend responded:
Thank you so much for choosing to work with me! It was my pleasure helping you take this trip. Even though there were the hiccups with the flights I'm glad you were still able to have a great time. Having the travel insurance is so valuable to add on. I look forward to planning your next adventure!

The best beach destination!

Reviewed By Rhea - Neenah, Wi | Traveled to Roatan ~ Honduras ~ Central America
Julie was great! She was very patient with our indecisiveness and helped calm me when my anxiety hit in about traveling. She was always there to help answer questions and really helped us a lot with our trip. I don’t think we would have felt as comfortable if he planned the trip on our own. I highly recommend Julie!

Customer Testimonials

Australia Humanitarian Trip

Julie was extremely helpful and made my first international travel a breeze! A group of 15 of us students from Northern Illinois and University of Chicago went to Australia for a humanitarian trip and Julie set up all of our flights with no hassle for us. She got us a great deal and was there in case we needed anything throughout it. We had a total of 7 flights for this trip and she took care of it all. I would highly recommend her if you are traveling anywhere in or out of the country! - Cassie

Honeymoon in Maui

Julez Travel is a must for anyone planning a honeymoon! My husband and I traveled to Maui, Hawaii and Julie knew all the best spots for us to visit. She organized a convertible rental car, beautiful resort, snorkeling, parasailing, and the most authentic luau we have ever been to. Planning was totally stress free and the entire honeymoon went so smoothly. Thank you, Julie, for making our honeymoon truly special! We will treasure our Hawaii memories always. -

It was great you were able to help us get our plans together. Without your help, I'm sure Linda and I would have floundered around with a lot of frustration. Thank you for keeping us sane.
