As a travel professional, Jennifer's goal is to provide value added travel experiences for clients in an honest and transparent way. She wades through all of the online clutter and provides information from first-hand sources and global connections. Jennifer takes her business and the needs of her clients' very seriously and is committed to providing a fantastic experience from the moment of inquiry until after you return home.
Jennifer is an advisor, collaborator and advocate and as such charges a fee for her time and knowledge. Her priority is not to get the cheapest "deal". In fact, you will never hear Jennifer use the word deal in any correspondence. Her top priority IS to ensure her clients are spending their travel time wisely and receiving maximum value for their investment. Jennifer spends a significant amount of time on research and client communication before a single booking is even made. Think of her like your financial advisor - a trusted and knowledgeable source who can help shape and support big decisions in your life. She strives to provides a peace of mind you won't find on an app or website. The tremendous travel disruptions of COVID-19 serve as a reminder of how important it is to be able to connect to an actual live, caring person who can walk you through unexpected situations, especially during a world-wide crisis.
INSPIRE*EDUCATE*CREATE The process begins with an initial discovery consultation which allows Jennifer to get to the heart of your travel needs and get to know you better. The key to a successful relationship will be communication and trust. She will review your previous travel history, likes/dislikes, special needs, expectations for this trip, budget, discuss how you can best work together, and then go over her professional travel management fees. Discovery consultations are currently available by phone or a Zoom session.
Should you decide Jennifer is the right consultant for you, she will then forward a client agreement for your review and the travel management fee will be due prior to the start of any research.
The majority of communication will be via email which provides you with written record of requests, consultation and arrangements made.
