Planning a trip to a new destination, or one you’d like to explore again but with new highlights, can be time consuming and overwhelming to design on your own with all the online options, unknown source of reviews, and idiosyncrasies for coordinating timing between itinerary activities.  A trusted travel advisor can provide the peace of mind you need to achieve an extraordinary travel experience, whether relaxing at an all-inclusive beach resort or immersing yourself in the local cultural activities.

 

As your travel advisor, we will collaborate with you to research and create a custom itinerary that fits your travel style, needs and desires. Our focus is to know the world’s leading travel partners intimately, whether hotel & resorts, tour companies or modes of transportation, to take the guesswork out of planning your dream trip.  With our connections to Virtuoso®, we work with preferred suppliers that have a high standard of care and service to provide expertise, unbelievable travel perks, and deeper connections and experiences for a destination.  We aim to provide you with a concierge level of service, during, before and after your travels, so you are left with lasting memories of a well-planned travel experience.

 

Our mission is to open doors to the extraordinary, forging connections and relationship through immersive travel that leaves an indelible mark on your heart and mind. Let us go the extra mile for you to take care of all the details, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey.

Our Process

At Essence of Elegance Travel, our process begins with an initial consultation followed by our dedication to finding the perfect destination and itinerary that best suits your wants and needs. From there, we'll guide you through the booking process, ensuring that each step is stress-free and enjoyable so you can embrance your journey.

Consultation

During the initial 30-minute complimentary consultation, we will get to know you and your anticipated vacation plans.  We meet over video or phone call to talk about your interests, needs and budget as well as the overall process for customizing your perfect destination and itinerary.  Our aim is to ask the right questions to get started in planning an elegant travel experience for you.  We'll both use this time to figure out if we're a good fit for each other.  If so, we'll discuss what we need to do for the next step.  To help make the most of this time, please fill out the travel interest form prior to our meeting.

Travel Planning Portfolio

After we define your budget and timeline during your initial consultation, we begin designing your dream vacation. We will work closely and collaboratively with you to design the travel itinerary that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations. We’ll do all the research to make sure we find the best experiences for your tastes and budget.

 

You’ll receive 2 to 3 visual itinerary presentations that you can choose from, and we can make adjustments to suit your preferences.  Once you've decided on your top choice, we’ll book all the elements that you need.
