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.

Unbelievable destination wedding
She booked 60+ people for our destination wedding. My guests shared they had a positive experience and she was very helpful. It felt very stress free working with her as a bride. Which made planning for the wedding even easier. If there was a concern or issue it was taken care of and usually before I even was aware that there was an issue. Thank you Amber for taking care of all the travel arrangements and making it so easy.

Cruising with the grandkids
This is the second Disney vacation that Amber assisted us with. She did such a great job 3 years ago assisting us with a family vacation to Disney World that we knew she would do another fantastic job with assisting us with planning a Disney cruise. Amber pays attention to the details and provided us with many travel/activity options.

Perfect Honeymoon
Amber did a great job helping us plan our honeymoon! We told her where we wanted to go, how much we wanted to spend, and everything turned out amazing! She was very responsive to our emails from the time between booking the trip and the actual departure date! We had trouble with our airline not allowing us to check in online, but we called Amber right away and it was all taken care of within a few hours!
