What our Clients say


“Robin, I wanted to reach out b/c everything went so smoothly. Multiple times I said, “this has Robin written all over it” because there were details in our trip that were SO well thought out. Off the top of my head, the rooms! Wow! I feel like you hand selected those rooms. The welcome baskets, the breakfasts (so nice getting all that) & resort credits. I can’t thank you enough. We had a blast & you were so helpful!! You’re the best!”

PLanned a Vacation to Spain

“I wanted to thank you again for everything you did to make our vacation a huge, delightful and relaxing success. From negotiating the rates and perks to invaluable advice and support. I cannot tell you what a relief it was to know I could email and that you were on top of guest relations to make it right for us. I can’t wait to plan another trip together – though this one will be hard to beat! (We may just repeat it again next year!)”

Travel Planning Fees

What option is best for your next trip?

I would like to explain three ways in which I help my clients plan a vacation. Some love to do the planning but others want it turn-key.   

  1. For the travelers who love researching hotels on their own, I simply book their stays based on what they decide. There is no fee for this. They still receive the perks of my travel agency rates such as resort credits, complimentary daily breakfast, etc, and they have me as an advocate for them while at the property. 

    “Robin, can you please book the Four Seasons Orlando for us and connect two rooms?” Or “Robin, can you take over this Rosewood Baha Mar reservation and add your Rosewood Elite amenities?”
  2. Sometimes a client comes to me without knowing where to go or stay.  Clients book a call to go over the trip’s vision, and then I present a proposal of all options that fit budget and preferences. Proposals incur a $250 fee. I’ll provide a proposal revision if needed and we will book the properties. 

    Robin, we want a beach vacation that’s a nonstop flight away with a kids club,” OR “We’d like to try Anguilla for a multi-gen trip. What are the options?”
  3. We can create and book a full itinerary to that destination you have been dreaming about that will include all transfers and activities. There is a $500 proposal and planning fee for this service— but Orlando is $350. I have on-the-ground partners in virtually every destination, so the sky’s the limit here. These travel companies have been vetted and welcomed into the elite Virtuoso network of providers. Clients will enjoy a mobile friendly turn-key itinerary for their vacation where we book ground transfers, tours, VIP airport services, and other experiences.

    “Robin, we want to cover Costa Rica for spring break and visit the rainforest and the beach.” OR “Robin, we want to visit Japan and South Korea with my kids and parents next summer.”
