The TravelSmith Travel Agency

Working with The TravelSmith

I believe that travel should be accessible to anyone, regardless of budget. While I have no control over the cost of hotels or tours, I do have control over my fees. That’s why I offer free planning services as well as an option to upgrade to custom itinerary planning. My free planning services cover all of the basics, while my custom itinerary planning can be as hands-on as me making dining reservations for you prior to your arrival and arranging private tours. After you submit your inquiry, we’ll have a quick call to discuss what you want in a vacation. I can explain the difference between my free services and my paid services for your type of vacation and you can let me know your preference.

How to Work with a Travel Advisor

At The TravelSmith Travel Agency

  1. You Submit an Inquiry Form

Click on one of the Inquiry Form Buttons above to get started.

2. The TravelSmith will respond via email with a calendar link.

You can set up your complimentary discovery call to discuss more details and answer any questions you may have before we begin. You can decide which level of service you’d like — our Free Planning Service or a Custom Itinerary that includes a non-refundable planning fee.

3. The TravelSmith will send you a call recap with your Free or Concierge Client Agreement to Sign

If you decide to use our Concierge Service, you will also be sent an invoice to pay.

4. You sign and return the Client Agreement

For both service levels, The TravelSmith does not start researching a quote until you sign and return the Client Agreement. If you've chosen Concierge Service, the concierge service fee must be paid to start quote research.

5. The TravelSmith puts together a proposal and sends it to you to review.

Our typical turnaround for a custom quote is 5-10 business days. If I anticipate that the proposal may take longer, I will communicate this as soon as possible.

6. You approve or ask to modify the proposal.

7. The TravelSmith collects your information and puts a reservation on hold for you (if possible with the supplier).

Making sure these details are correct is very important to prevent having to pay fees to make corrections.

8. You approve the reservation hold and send The TravelSmith your payment information for the deposit.

Reservation holds can expire as soon as the same business day at 10 pm Eastern.

9. The TravelSmith applies your deposit and completes your booking.

You'll receive a booking confirmation and receipt of your payment.

10. The TravelSmith sends you reminders about excursions, entry information for your destination, and payments.

11. Final Payment is Due

This varies by destination and other factors. I keep my clients up to date with their due date information.

12. The TravelSmith send you your travel documents.

I used to be in education, and I'm an overplanner so you're going to get lots of information from me. Some is necessary like your reservation information, airport transfer vouchers, etc., and some less necessary like interesting facts about your destination.

13. The TravelSmith checks in on you.

You'll receive an email from me on your first day checking in on you to see how things are going.

14. Welcome Home

It's time to start dreaming of your next vacation.
