I just received a nice letter from a client. We’ve been working for 2 weeks non-stop planning her anniversary trip to Alaska. Here’s what she wrote:

Hi Heather,

We just wanted to thank you for all  your hard work on our trip.  It feels a little odd not to be emailing you 3 times a day(refreshing for you I imagine!)  Anyway, we could not have planned that trip in 2 weeks time without you. You are amazing! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Have a great day! Can’t wait until August!

Another client just returned from an Alaskan cruise and here’s a bit from what she wrote!


The trip you arranged for us was wonderful. You made everything so seamless from letting me know about Southwest check in, calling and checking in for us last Sunday to everything in between. We really appreciated the 12 pack of water and the delicious chocolate covered strawberries……Thank you again Heather and I will recommend you to anyone I know who is thinking about taking a cruise.

Here’s my friend Carl. He’s learned why he should have used a travel agent recently!

Had a great meeting today with Heather Travis of Globe Getaways. I know in this day and age, no one thinks they need a travel agent any more, but I think we need one now more than ever. Do you know which airlines charge bag fees and which don’t — doesn’t that change the numbers when you compare rates? Heather does! Do you know that connecting flight from Mexico means you need to allow 2 1/2 hours for customs, even though the flights connect in 90 minutes? Heather does! Do you know which airlines offer package deals so you can book a quick vacation and have all of your bases covered with a single phone call? Heather does!


So in this do-it-yourself age, I still think there’s a time and a place to let a professional do their job. Next time I book a trip, I’ll call Heather. She’s my personal “easy button” so I can cross that action item off my “to do” list and go do the things that only I can do.

Heather and Scott,

Thank you for spending time in ensuring that our honeymoon was perfect, and it was. It was more amazing than I could’ve imagined. The resort was picturesque, clean, and the amenities wee awesome. The beach was very clean (hardly any seaweed!) The restaurants were tasty and the staff more than friendly. Our reservations were in perfect order and made for the perfect relaxing honeymoon Brian and I were looking for. Thank you again for putting so much work into making our honeymoon dreams come true. I know that you have a bright future as a travel agent. I know I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!
