SERVICES

Family Meal
At A Well-Traveled Suitcase, we specialize in family and multi-generational vacations. 

 

I’ve been traveling with my large family for over twenty years.  First-hand experience and knowledge are what allow me to turn a typical vacation into a truly memorable adventure

 

We book every kind of vacation you can imagine: from all-inclusive resorts to cruises, from organized tours to specialized individual adventures.  We will handle all the details from research to booking, travel insurance to car rentals. We find accommodations that suit your needs from hotels and guesthouses to villa rentals.  We schedule your daily events and provide you with suggestions for your free time.  No detail is overlooked.

If we decide to work together, we will collaborate on your plans and we will create a detailed itinerary document of your trip which will be available on your smartphone or tablet, or as a PDF, if you prefer. It will contain helpful hints, your travel itinerary, and confirmations.  When you book with A Well-Traveled Suitcase, we are with you every step of the way.  If you run into any issues, we do our best to resolve them, so you don’t have to waste your valuable holiday time.  Our goal is to always EXCEED your expectations.

 

The biggest question my new clients ask is, “how do you get paid”? 

The truth is, in a combination of ways.  Travel advisors make our living from the commission that we earn on sales of hotels, cruises and tours.   Most hotels, vacation package companies and cruise lines include agent commissions in their published prices.

 

If you do all the work yourself online, they "pocket" the difference. Using our services means you get the customer service you deserve. You won't be spending hours on the internet, hanging on phone hold for an eternity or wasting any precious time wondering and worrying.

PLANNING FEES 

 
Because experience, education and connections bring value to your travel,
there is a non-refundable research and planning fee that will be determined after our initial call. 
 
The fee starts at $250 per itinerary.
