Springtime

WHAT ADVENTURE AWAITS YOU?

 

 

.               

 

Spring time is such a beautiful time of the year. In fact it is my favorite because here, in the northeast, the snow is disappearing and our little corner of the world is coming to life. It's also the time when so many people make their travel plans.

Did you know we have a bridal registry? Your friends and family can purchase gift certificates in any amount starting at $50 towards your honeymoon or other travel. The money will be kept safely in a special client account until you are ready to use it. It can help turn the ordinary vacation into a dream vacation! Just call us to set it up. We even offer inserts to add to your shower invitations.

Have you planned your summer vacatin yet? We are pleased to be able to offer many kinds of family-friendly vacation and can help you choose one that is age-appropirate for your family members. Summer is the perfect time to plan a multi-generation vacation so everyone can make those special family memories that will last a lifetime. There are specially themed cruises, land tours and river cruises that are geared towards families with children.

It's not too early to plan for holiday travel. Christmas, Hannukah and New Years travel books early. There are many great options to help you enjoy the holidays without all of the usual stress. Get away and relax this year!

Celebrations are definitely more festive when we're on vacation, don't you agree? Celebrate a milestone anniversary, birthday or just about anything else on a cruise, on a beach or on an adventure. Try something new to mark the turning of a page, a new chapter. Take a train ride across Canada, take an Alpine adventure, stay in a castle in Ireland, get up close and personal with wildlife in the Galapagos, float along the Mississippi on a paddlewheeler, stroll through a redwood forest, climb the bell tower of Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral, be enchanted by an operetic gondolier guiding you through the canals of Venice.

Whatever you do, whatever your plans, be sure to stay protected for the unexpected. We offer and recommend travel insurance. It's a small investment for peace of mind.

Finally, we can't stress enough the importance of having an updated passport. It is getting more difficult every day to travel anywhere, even domestically, without one. Most foreign countries require that your passport remains valid for at least six months beyond the date at the end of your journey. And always keep in mind that a passport that was issued to a child is valid for only 5 years, unlike one issued to an adult which is valid for 10 years so pull out those passports and look at the expiration date of each one. Nothing is worse than finding out that you will be denied travel once you've booked it, paid for it and maybe even packed for it!

 

Need some ideas? Please look at our cruise page, our vacation page and most of all, our blog page for a little inspiration. We know travel because we experience travel and we continue to travel, to study and to learn so we can give you the best possible service. We don't want to meet your expectations, we want to exceed them.

As always, we appreciate the opportunity to work with you and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Happy travels!

Here are just a few tips worth repeating:

1 - If you can, pack as much as possible into a carry on. Try to pack "double-duty" clothing, such as a pants/skirts that can be worn to a casual dinner and then be dressed up for a more formal occassion if it presents itself. Same with shoes. I generally carry a soft pair of dress shoes, a good walking shoe and a casual. low sandal.

2 - Let your "personal" carry-on item also be used for extra items that you will be needing.

3 - If you travel more than just occassionally, it may be worthwhile to enroll in one of the pre-screening programs offered by the government. But beware that you will need to pay for it, provide fingerprints and be interviewed so it probably isn't worthwhile if you don't do enough travelling.

 

4 - Be careful what you pack in your carry-on luggage as you will be delayed and may lose some items if they don't comply with TSA rules.

5 - On smaller, commuter flights, they will probably take your carry-on luggage and gate-check it so you won't need to check it at the ticket counter and therefore, you won't have to pay to check it. Just be sure that you don't leave valuables in it or anything you will need before during your flight. Also, batteries are not to be packed in any checked luggage for safety reasons.

6 - Read the signage while in the security line. If you are prepared when you step up to the x-ray belt, you will get through faster and easier. Also, have your passport open to your photo page and your boarding pass with it. The agents will appreciate it. Oh, and be sure to smile and greet them with a warm "good morning" or "hello" when you approach and follow up with a thank-you.

7 - While packing, be mindful of the weight and girth limits of your luggage, both checked and carry-on. Don't be the person at the ticket counter moving items from one suitcase to another to avoid the hefty extra baggage fee.

8- Most of all, be pleasant and patient. A smile goes a long way at making your life easier!

Happy travels!
