Well, here we go again. The warm summer days are behind us and winter’s coming with a vengeance (or say “they” say!) I’m happy to be back posting my monthly Chronicles for you to enjoy.
For this introductory September Chronicle, I’d like to talk to you about some of the training that I go through so I can offer you exceptional services when you contact me to help create your perfect Escape. I’ve spent much of the summer upgrading my existing specializations and gaining new training as well.
This month from September 13 through September 19, I was in San Diego at our annual conference – CoNexion. This was an excellent opportunity for me to further my relationship with suppliers who develop all the amazing tours, cruises and travel services I share with you throughout the year.
I’ve traveled to Vancouver for cruise ship inspections, training with the Globus Family of Products and Anderson Vacations.
AHHHH…Disneyland or Disneyworld or Disney Cruise?
I am already specialized with Universal and Disney products.
Love to cruise or what to give it a try? One of my favourite ways to holiday, I am specialized with Viking River Cruises, Ama Waterways, Avalon Waterways, Princess, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and have certification with SNG (Special Needs Group) for Accessible Travel.
Thinking Guided Tours? I’m certified with Collette, Globus, Contiki (for ages 18-30). For Semi Guided Tours – Monograms, Royal Irish/Royal Scottish Tours, Anderson Vacations and CIE Tours are Tour Operators I often turn to, but have many more I work with. Traveling on your own? Monograms, Solo Travel may be the right fit for you!
Love the Rails?
I’m certified (and have traveled with) Rocky Mountaineer and specialize with Amtrak and Via Rail Vacations.
Want to stay close to home and tour Canada? Anderson Vacations, Wells Gray Tours, Maxxim Tours, McCarthy’s are amazing tour company’s or I can build your own perfect adventure in our beautiful own back yard!
Oh – we can’t forget about those wonderful All Inclusive Holidays! Do you have a favourite – Sunwing, Signature, Transat, Nolitours, Air Canada Vacations, WestJet Vacations? I have a portal that let’s me access them all with a single click!
Of course, there are so many other Tour Operators and and Suppliers that I work closely with. Each of them allows me the opportunity to work through their Travel Agent Portals and gain valuable information about the destination of your dreams!
And what if you just want a hotel room, a car rental, a quick flight or travel insurance! I can help you there too! I have many hotel providers I work with and can access all the major car rental companies (and some smaller ones too!). I can access to all airlines and will search for the best pricing for you. I’m fully licensed to sell Travel Insurance (never leave home without it!) in the Province of BC with Manulife, so you know your holiday will be secure once you book!
So, what the great thing about all of this? You don’t need to search for anything! No stressing out, no hours upon hours opening 10 separate windows and comparing them all! I’ll take care of all of that for you then offer you the best of the best, all within your budget and then get you on your way to experiencing all the joy of the perfect, stress free holiday!
Is it time for you to Escape? Get in touch with me and I’ll be very happy to help you out!
