Warm Weather Escape Artist

As a travel consultant my goal is to help others discover the joys of travel, experience new cultures, and visit the places of their dreams. My favorite part of being a travel consultant is touching base with a client upon their return and hearing the stories of their travels. I learn just as much from those conversations as I do while researching a destination.

One of the best trips of our lives
"One of the best trips of our lives".....is how I would describe our Cancun
vacation in March, 2017. AND, it was all due to the help and professional
guidance of our travel agent, Amber McLaughlin. Though my husband and I have never personally met Amber, our daughter recommended her and what a great recommendation this was. I have since recommended her to the rest of my family who will take this same vacation in December.
Since we have traveled to lots of foreign spots, we were familiar with how traveling works. However, this particular trip was a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for our family of five because Amber was able to remove all the 'pain-in-the-neck' details that we have encountered with other trips. She carefully arranged non-stop flight times while accommodating all of our ages - from 5 - 71. She sent us information for helping us choose the best resort rooms and took care of all the transportation both coming and going. Great gal/great trip.

Great relaxing escape.
My girlfriends and I booked an all inclusive hotel in Puerta Viarta. It was helpful having Amber narrow down our options based on our budget. Prior to that we had been spending hours online. She had first hand experience with which hotels were the best for our needs and budget. We had a great time. The hotel was Amazing. We did not want to end up at a Spring Break hotel and she helped us navigate the choices. I would go to Amber again. The hotel was perfect for what we were looking for.

Wedding travel
Amber was awesome!! I called to change my travel plans and add another person 10 minutes before her day was over, she stayed late to make sure the extra person was booked and locked in at the rate quoted. I highly recommend amber for any travel arrangements!
