Back Story: The Travel Advisors

"A lot of people assume that using a travel agent is more expensive then doing it on their own. In many cases we can get better prices than if you go directly to the vendor."

Why choose that location? Why start a business in this town?
This is a home-based travel agency. Having worked in a storefront office for 18 years I decided in 2008 to work from home and with two other people (one in South Glastonbury and the other in Avon) we started our own company.

What do you do?
We offer all types of travel such as cruises, land packages, hotels, car rentals, Disney vacations and also island vacations . The only thing we do not do is individual airline tickets.

What are you most proud of about your business?
We can customize a trip to fit your needs. From a private tour of Italy or a safari in Africa.

What's something people would find surprising about your business or profession?
A lot of people assume that using a travel agent is more expensive then doing it on their own. In many cases we can get better prices than if you go directly to the vendor. We also have many resources to choose from.

How are you involved in the community?
I try to do my best planning everyone's trip and I am proud to say that I have never had a complaint in all the years I have been doing this.

Nina is a GREAT agent-esp. for getting the best cabins aboard ship. I always say "If Nina hasn't been there, you don't want to go"!
