You might ask why book with a travel agent?

While you’re busy doing your day job, Cruise Planners is busy doing our day job planning your ultimate vacation and travel needs. We are all specialists in our own fields, although the internet might make booking travel yourself easy, ask yourself how long it actually took to research, book, and actually not second guess over and over again did you book the right thing.  As a Travel Agent we do the research while working with you to find the best options, based on your likes and desires. There are no fees to use a Travel Agent we offer the same rates that you see online, we get paid from commissions from hotels, tour companies, and cruise lines. So ask yourself “Why wouldn’t I use a Travel Agent?” The biggest VALUE you receive is the Value of Time and knowing you’re going to have a great travel experience.

As an Signature Travel Representative and Cruise Planner Franchise, Carol’s Escapes Travel has access to lower than published cruise rates on thousands of itineraries & access to best perks and rack rates for mid to luxury hotels and tours.
