HOW IT WORKS
It's a Collaborative (and fun!) Process...
STEP 1 - CONNECT & DISCOVER - We start out with my favorite step…getting to know you! After you fill out a trip design form, we'll schedule a complimentary discovery call and discuss more details of your trip. Here I will learn about your travel personality, travel preferences, dislikes, travel visons and anything else that will help me create the perfect itinerary for you, as well as for those who are traveling with you. It is also during this step where we discuss any applicable planning fees, what is to follow, and an estimated timeline. If we are a good fit and you decide to work with us (Yay!), you'll then review the contract, pay the trip planning *fee and we can move right on to Step 2.
STEP 2 - RESEARCH & DESIGN - Here is where we get to work crafting the details of your dream trip. Your input and feedback during this phase is critical and ensures that we continue moving in the right direction as we work together on your trip. By the end of STEP 2, together, we will have created a completely customized itinerary for a seamless travel experience and are ready to move to Step 3.
STEP 3 - CONFIRM & BOOK - Once the itinerary is set and approved by you, deposit(s) are collected from you and all components of the trip are securely booked. You will then be advised and kept abreast of any remaining balances and other important timelines leading up to your departure date, which takes us to Step 4!
STEP 4 - AND OFF YOU GO! While you are making memories that will last forever, you will have peace of mind knowing that I am keeping an eye on things for the duration of your trip. And if any issues arise, I will handle them swiftly so that you can keep your focus on where it should be…enjoying your time away.
It is my #1 goal to make sure your trip is nothing less than wonderful and is all that you envisioned! After you’ve returned and have settled back in, I always want to hear about your how things went. What did you love? What wasn’t so lovable. All of this helps me be the best Advisor I can be to you as we plan your next amazing trip!
