Does planning and managing the details of your perfect getaway feel like a full time job?

We get it. Vacation planning can be a huge part of the vacation fun. Indeed, studies confirm that very thing.

But we also realize that you need to prioritize your time. Other things require your full attention: your career, kid's extracurricular activities, caring for aging parents, and volunteer work are just a few we can mention. So sometimes, the best course of action is to reach for help.

Let us free up your overbooked schedule, be a sounding board to bounce travel dreams off of, and help you have that seamless vacation you deserve. 

Let us make it a seamless and enjoyable experience.

Common Vacation
 Planning Hurdles:

- Time Constraints: Finding hours to research destinations, accommodations, and activities isn't easy with a full family calendar.

- Overwhelming Choices: Between the internet and advice from family and friends, you’re flooded with travel options, making it hard to decide the best fit for your family's needs.

- Hidden Costs: Without expert guidance, unexpected expenses can pop up, derailing your vacation budget.

- Logistical Challenges: Coordinating flights, transfers, and accommodations can be a complex puzzle.

- Changing Regulations: Keeping up with travel advisories, visa requirements, and health protocols can be daunting.

- Avoiding Common Pitfalls: Navigating potential issues like overbooked hotels or missed connections.

- Missed Opportunities: Without insider knowledge, you might overlook hidden gems or special experiences.

- Peace of Mind: Ensuring your family's safety and comfort is paramount, and professional planning can offer that assurance.

Let us handle the intricacies so you can embark on a journey filled with joy and free from hassle.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of booking with Treasured Stories Travel?

We work for you, not the cruise lines, resorts, or tour operators. And, we save you time! We get to know your family's travel style, needs, and expectations for each vacation you book through us. We use this information to create your personalized itinerary and any added benefits we discover, utilizing our network connections, such as Travel Leaders Network. We build a line of communication with you and service your trip from when you hire us until your arrival home.

Why do you charge a fee, and what does it include?

We research each trip as if it is our first time exploring your chosen destination, cruise, or tour. We realize there is constant change in the travel world. New resorts, cruise ships, tours, and itineraries become available. We look for what is best for your family within your budget. The fee covers our time researching, creating, and presenting your itinerary. It also covers our time contacting suppliers, booking and servicing your trip, and getting your family ready to travel.

How do you plan trips to places you have never visited?

We network with travel agents across the globe and businesses that provide local expertise for clients. This keeps us connected and current with what is available for clients to help us design the best itinerary for your budget. In addition, our suppliers are carefully vetted through Travel Leaders Network.

What is Travel Leaders Network?

Travel Leaders Network is one of the largest sellers of luxury travel, cruises, and tours in the travel industry. It represents over 5,700 travel agency locations across the United States and Canada.

What if I need to cancel my trip?

We always strongly recommend trip insurance. Knowing that you can cancel or postpone your trip gives you peace of mind. Every supplier has its own cancellation window, policies, and cost. Please keep in mind that trip interruption due to illness or unforeseen circumstances can be very costly, and your domestic insurance plan often does not cover medical care abroad. Also, some countries require proof of medical insurance for travelers entering their country. Please let us know if you have questions about trip insurance.

Where does my money go?

Only your planning fee goes directly to Treasured Stories Travel. When booking your vacation, the information you supply to us through our PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard) compliant software goes directly to the vacation vendors (tour company, cruiseline, resort, etc.) They charge your card and provide the receipt with your booking information. For your security, we don't store card information or take card information over the phone, text, or email.
