Why should I use a travel advisor when I can book online myself?

Would you cut your own hair, give yourself legal advice or fix your own car? Well, maybe some of you are that adventurous, but the reality is that travel can be both complex and risky if you don’t fully understand the process. As a certified expert in the field of travel, I know the ins and outs of successful traveling and can save you time, money and aggravation.

Here are just a few ways I can help:

1. Sort through the choices so you won’t become overwhelmed

2. Protect your investment and make sure you get the best value.

3. Get you the VIP treatment.

4. Help you book all the extras like dining, spa treatments, shore
excursions and golf.

5. Help you navigate travel requirements and documents.

6. I’m the only person you need to call if something does not go as planned.

the Planning Process

Complimentary Consultation

Let’s get to know each other better. Tell me what’s on your travel wish list. Let’s brainstorm and dream together! 


Design & Planning

I love this part! I’ll research the destination, seek out accommodations that meet your approval, find fun and entertaining things for you to do there, and look for the most practical way to get you there and back. I’ll do all this while giving careful consideration to your budget and schedule. 


The Proposal

Choose what you like most from the design and planning phase and I’ll publish it in a detailed interactive itinerary. “Virtually” walk through your vacation day-to-day so there’s never any guesswork. Your itinerary will include a detailed description of transportation, lodging and any extras you decide to include like travel insurance, gratuities, activities and excursions. When you’re ready to book, simply authorize a deposit to secure rates and availability.  


Know Before You Go

Approximately 4-6 weeks before you travel we’ll go through a travel checklist together to make sure everything is prepared before you leave. Do you have your passports, travel documents and prescription refills? Do you have someone looking after your home, pets and mail while you are away? Leave all your worries behind.


Bon Voyage!

Embark on the journey of a lifetime! Celebrate, indulge and enjoy luxury VIP service. Remember, if you need anything at all I am just a phone call or Whatsapp message away.


Welcome Home!

I can’t wait to hear all about your journey! Don’t forget to share your favorite photos with me too. I want to know what you loved most about your trip as well as what could be improved. Don’t wait! Let’s keep the dream alive by planning your next trip!

Brenda is so awesome to work with! She's super responsive! We are often booking cruises on weekends and on time crunches and she is so quick to respond and get us the best deal. She is very knowledgeable about cruising and gives great advice. We refer everyone we know to her!

We had been dreaming about a honeymoon trip to Hawaii but didn’t know where to start. Brenda saved us so much time and helped us plan the perfect itinerary. Everything from an upgraded hotel rooms to dining reservations and tours was carefully planned in advance and we were treated like royalty the entire time.

A friend recommended Allegro Luxury Vacations to us when were were thinking about traveling to Italy. We wanted to explore on our own instead of with a large tour group but were afraid it would be difficult without knowing the language. Brenda planned the itinerary for us that included transportation to every town we wanted to see and plenty of English speaking guides. It was the best vacation we ever had and we can’t wait to go again!

I reached out to Brenda to help plan our family cruise. I expected to pay more to use a professional, but was pleasantly surprised to learn that she actually saved us money through special discounts and extras we wouldn’t have gotten on our own.

My husband and I wanted to spend 3 weeks in Europe to celebrate our retirement. Brenda suggested spending one week on a river cruise to take advantage of a free airfare offer. Not only did it save us a money, but we were able to see so much more of Europe than we originally thought.
