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 did it actually take 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.

Are you an AMEX Card Holder?

As an AMEX Travel Representative, Carol’s Escapes is able to ensure you get the most value out of your AMEX Travel Perks, and when aligning yourself with a AMEX Travel Representative, often you will receive additional benefits that you can only get from AMEX Travel Rep.   In addition, we can convert your AMEX points to travel for you.

Not an AMEX Card Holder

That’s okay you can still benefit from some of the amazing group space pricing we have with Cruise Planners and AMEX travel without using an AMEX Card.  In addition, still earn all the same travel points when using your other brand cards for booking your vacations.

Contact through email, call, or text; would love to meet with you and learn about your travel goals and bucket-list.
