Hello, my name is Joyce and I would love to work with you to find you the perfect dream vacation. I have worked in the travel industry over 35 years, first at a major airline at the vacation desk, then as an independent travel agent. As a lover of travel, I have spent years exploring and immersing myself into many destinations. I've enjoyed lounging on the white sand beaches of Mexico and the Caribbean, swimming with dolphins, cruising, riding scenic trains in the US and abroad, exploring castles in Europe, and exploring historical sites throughout the world.
During the COVID19 pandemic, I attended quite a few virtual tours and webinars. In addition, I updated my certifications with the cruise lines, completed the Disney College of Knowlegde courses for travel agents, became a Hawaii Expert, an Australia Specialist, and an AMResorts Master Agent. My knowledge about the travel industry is very important to me and I constantly look for ways to expand my knowledge.
Cruising is one of my favorite ways to travel. Unpacking once and waking up in a different port every day is a perfect way to travel and get the biggest bang for your buck! A river cruise allows you the opportunity to see so much more of the beautiful countryside while gliding down a famous river between the shores. Oceanliners visit many tropical island destinations as well as Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada and Europe. I have found that the days at sea are a great way to unwind before going off to explore the next port of call.
The Travel Specialist, LLC is not a traditional brick and mortar agency. I operate out of my home office, which provides you with many advantages, the most important being my flexible schedule and availability. My business hours are Monday-Friday 10am - 4pm, but I can plan to work with you at other times by appointment. I offer peace of mind to my clients as they are able to reach me in case of emergency. I specialize in Cruises, All-Inclusive Vacation Packages to Mexico and the Caribbean, Weddings & Honeymoon packages, Train Travel Packages, and Vacation Packages to Europe, Australia & New Zealand, Alaska, Hawaii, Disney and other regions of the US. As a travel specialist, I enjoy planning wonderful trips for my clients that will provide memories that will last a lifetime. I'm looking forward to helping you plan your next adventure, trip of a lifetime, family vacation, wedding, honeymoon, or long weekend getaway. Please let me know how I can use my resources to find the perfect vacation for you and your family/friends.
I endeavor to always offer the best possible pricing, and always offer the best service. I will attempt to beat or price match any online agency. Price differences can often occur as a result of not making an "apples to apples" comparison. If you want a comparison price or feel you can get a better rate, please call 336-406-7586 and give me the opportunity to match or beat the rate that you have found. With so many travel options out there, it can be overwhelming. I work as your 'value interpreter.' Using my expertise, I find amazing experiences that exceed your every desire, but not your budget. With my services, you can be confident that your vacation will be perfectly planned, hassle-free, and filled with moments you'll never forget.
