FAQs

How much does it cost to use a travel advisor?

I charge professional planning fees to free me from relying on commissions for my time and expertise. Fees vary, but a good rule of thumb is $250 per couple or family for 1 week of travel. The fee is flexible and can go up or down depending on complexity of itinerary, length of travel and my time. More often than not, the value I add in tangibles (like complimentary breakfasts and credits), and intangibles (like saving your time and alleviating stress) far outweigh the planning fee. 


How does it all work?
