Planning Your Family Vacation

10647167_504727462963526_8820267343937119371_nIf you are anything like my family, you are in the process of making plans for the summer.  This can be a VERY stressful thing for many reasons.  We’ve teamed up with our sponsor,  Jessica Sens, Independent Vacation Specialist with Cruises, Inc to get a better understanding of how working with a specialist could not only save you money, but also your sanity!

Jessica has given us a rundown of what she can offer you and your family and the benefits of working with her:

I excel in family vacations

Disney (I’m “College of knowledge” certified and these trips are my absolute FAVORITE!), Family Cruises, and All-Inclusive Resorts

Time saved on research

I can save you time by vetting thousands of flight and hotel options to find the right fare at the lowest rate, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your family, instead of sifting through endless websites for the best deal! Time is a precious commodity.


One-stop shopping for all of your travel needs. One phone number to call and one contact to keep up with. Simplicity is paramount!

I can point you in the right direction

Very often vacationers don’t know exactly what kind of vacation they want. They have general ideas about it, or they have conflicting desires coming from every family member. It’s my job to get to know the clients needs and wants. Then, to provide them with a number of options that the entire family will enjoy. Not only will I help you book a trip, I’ll help you build the trip from the ground up if need be!

My services are FREE to use

Traveling is expensive enough; I make my money from a commission provided by the resort, theme park, cruise line, hotel, etc…

I can save you $$$

With discounted packages and exclusive specials and promotions, I can help make your family’s dream vacation a reality. As a mom, my experience traveling with young kids, provides valuable tips to help you maximize your money, time, and memories.

Planning a trip often proves to be an extremely stressful and tiring process. You can spend hours online searching for deals on flights and hotels, bouncing from one website to another in pursuit of the perfect price, never to be found! This kind of process is often headache-inducing, and causes “Mommy Meltdowns”! I can take care of any or all parts of your vacation as needed. I will book flights, make reservations, arrange Pre and Post flight hotels, rental cars, and any other special requests you may have.

Knowledge and Organization

There are hundreds of details that go into every trip, and they can get overwhelming really quickly. I can be your guide for everything from what to pack before you leave to all of the “must see” attractions in the area. I can offer you insider tips and advice, and handle all of the arrangements so you can focus on enjoying your getaway.

If you called a company directly, they wouldn’t tell you that their competitor is a better fit for you and or if they were selling a very similar product cheaper than they were! Since I sell all brands, I focus on YOUR family’s particular needs, making sure you are matched up with the right vacation. If you were to ask a supplier whether you should do A or B. You will likely hear something like “Oh, they are both fabulous choices.” Well, I have opinions that I will freely offer! More than that, I try to tell you why I like something or not or why I think you would like something different or not- I let you weigh the pros AND cons, so that you can make a more educated decision.

Personalized service

I get to know my clients. I forge a real relationship with them, and take note of their preferences and dislikes. My clients are never just “confirmation numbers” or “bookings” and they will get ME every single time they call. Not a different customer service rep or automated “press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish” system every time they have a question!

Peace of mind

I’m there for you before, during, and after your trip, and that peace of mind comes at no extra charge! With exceptional service, planning and advice, I will take care of all the details so you can just relax and enjoy your family’s time together.

Honesty and integrity

Personally, I try to use my clients money like I would use my own. Sometimes spending a little extra gives you a lot, sometimes spending a lot extra gives you very little. In addition to lots of money saving tips, I try to let my clients know where they should splurge and where they should cut corners. I have on several occasions, tried to talk clients out of more expensive vacation packages. While it is absolutely true that the more you buy the more commission I may make, I am much more concerned that at the end of your trip, you feel like you got your money’s worth. I would rather make less and have you trust me than make more and have you feel like you overspent. You will be much more likely to share my name with a friend, and I will sleep better at night knowing that you were taken care of like I would take care of my own family.

I am available outside of regular office hours

I work from my home office and cell phone, so I have great flexibility! I can often to meet clients in person on the weekends or after work, just whatever is convenient for them. I have hung up the phone with a client at 11:45pm, once the last trip detail was hammered out. And if I get an email at midnight I will answer it at 12:15 if I am still awake! I understand that life is CRAZY and sometimes its hard to find a spare minute between carpools and dance practice! Sometimes after bedtime is best, and I get that!

Personalized Payment Plans

Often when you book directly with suppliers, they want all of their money up front. I can usually make package deals with them and work out payment plans that fit your families budget.

    We’ve never been on a vacation. If given the choice we’d go with the cliché Disney world answer or even a Disney cruise 🙂
