Summer Greetings!

Denise and Ashley, Travel Agents

Denise and Ashley, Travel AgentsCan you believe that we are half-way through the year!?! Time passes quickly, and now is the best time to make your Travel Dreams come true! Only a year ago, our lives changed forever. The pause was imposed to life as we knew it ~ we learned how to PIVOT ~ we learned how to ADJUST & REALIGN ~ we learned how to REINVENT ourselves / our lives! And here we are – July 1st!

The reboot of travel is alive & robust! I and my team have had the pleasure and privilege to continue to travel during this past year, and these experiences have allowed us to best understand new protocols so that I/my team can assist our clients to best navigate their Celebra-cation™ experiences.

Most recently, just a few brief weeks ago, we were immersed in the intense, cultural beauty of ST. LUCIA. The landscape of this magical island is as diverse as her heritage. No two parts of the island are alike! Saint Lucian Nobel Laureate, Sir Derek Alcott once said, “Visual surprise is natural in the Caribbean; it comes with the landscape.” When you travel to any Caribbean Island, you expect sun, sea, and sand. BUT St. Lucia’s transcendent natural wonders will transport your mind, body, and spirit. Here – you have the opportunity to experience the adventure of a lifetime. LET HER INSPIRE YOU!

Every destination is opening for tourism in different ways. As a travel pro, we make it our business to know all the details so that your Celebra-cation™ is seamless! Partnerships/Relationships is the essence of all that we do, and it matters!

Travel Concepts invites you to travel with us! We have designed 2 Group Travel Experiences that will allow our customers to join and take advantage of the exclusive savings! You can mingle with others within our exclusive group or you can ‘do you’ away from the group – the best part, YOU and your PEEPS can escape, enjoy and know we will manage all of the details! More information about our Vaccination Celebra-cation™ in October this year AND Spring Break/March Madness in March 2022 included in this Newsletter and on our website! You know you want to go – give yourself the permission to simply DO IT!

Remember, there is always something to celebrate – and we remain grateful to have served clients globally for over 25 years!
Cheers & sending our warmest regards ~ Denise & Ashley

We loved working with Ashley and Denise from Travel Concepts for our honeymoon! We got married in October 2020, but knew traveling wouldn’t be a great opinion until summer 2021. We just got back from our honeymoon in Cancun and couldn’t have been happier! I called Ashley in February 2021 with concerns about traveling and shared my worries with her; she listened and answered all of my questions…again 🙂 When we arrived in Cancun this past June, everything was in order and exceeded our expectations! If you’re looking for a travel agent, Ashley and Denise will take WONDERFUL care of you! ~ Kara

Ashley and Denise were a breath of fresh air! With the craziness of planning a wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic, we appreciated knowing we were being taken care of and our honeymoon was waiting for us! All of our travel and every detail of our trip was perfect! They surprised us with a special, bubbly treat when we got to our resort, and were prompt to help with any questions we had throughout our trip! We cannot wait to use Travel Concepts for any and all of our future getaways! ~ Hannah

We LOVE referrals — there is no greater compliment from you!!!
