We are very excited to announce the launch of our new membership-based travel consulting and booking agency called ActiveTravels.com!
As some of you know, Steve has been working as a professional travel writer since 1990, visiting more than 80 countries and writing over 1200 stories. Whenever one of these stories is published, he receives numerous follow-up emails and calls from people asking for more specifics about that particular travel locale. Even with the glut of travel information out there on the web, expert travel advice is at a minimum. So, prospective travelers contact him to get in-depth knowledge from a trusted source.
This is why we created ActiveTravels! Just like you rely upon a financial advisor to give you advice about your investments, it’s a good idea to trust a travel consultant and advisor to help plan your valuable vacation time with friends and family. We are delighted to be able to offer that service to anyone who joins ActiveTravels.com. This past Sunday, The New York Times featured an article titled, “Are Travel Agents Back?” on their front page. Their answer? A resounding yes!
Lisa is now an accredited travel agent with two pillars of the travel industry, the Virtuoso Network and CWT Vacations, the leisure arm of Carlson Wagonlit Travel. Through her contacts, she can often get discounted room rates, complimentary upgrades and breakfasts, and on-site spa or food and beverage credits. Just this week, she saved clients $750 on discounted room rates at the same hotels they booked online. In addition, Steve has developed great relationships with hotels, outfitters, and restaurateurs over the years, so you can expect VIP service whenever you trust us to book your next escape.
As a husband and wife team, you can look forward to a “mom and pop” atmosphere where each member will be appreciated. This is not your corporate agency where you are just another face in the crowd. We look forward to getting to know you and your travel preferences and to giving you exceptional personalized service.
If you’re looking for personalized expert travel consulting and a trusted advisor to arrange your travel plans and ensure that all your trips are memorable and as stress-free as possible, please check out our new website, ActiveTravels.com, and join our travel club.
