Hi! I'm Linda!
Hi! I'm Linda... your travel advisor and owner of Linda's Travel Hut!
People have asked me why be a travel advisor? I used to work in marketing for an international broker/dealer, then owned a baking business with a friend. I had good jobs, why do something that anyone can do online themselves? Aren't travel advisors pretty much extinct? Let me tell you a quick story...
Awhile back we lived in Switzerland for my husband's work. At the time we only had our eldest, and she had just turned two years old. We decided to take a long weekend, drive to the Normandy beaches in France and see a couple of castles in the Loire Valley before getting back to our apartment.
So I booked a hotel in Beaune, France on one of those online travel sites; it would have been a great stop midpoint to stay the night. We arrived in Beaune late at night and couldn't find the hotel! The map that was on the site was so wrong... and the phone number for the hotel wasn't correct either! I called the site and told them what had happened, and asked if they could help. Their answer was "No, sorry. You should have looked into that hotel before you booked it."
It was past midnight, my husband was tired (he had worked all day and we left when he got off of work), I was tired, our daughter was tired and was fussy because she wanted strawberry milk. Luckily we found a chain hotel that we were familiar with, was open, and had a room.
I had learned something... the faceless online travel sites were not helpful. There was no personal connection; I was on my own.
And that isn't what I want for anyone.
So I'm here to help you plan your trip. Whatever the reason you’re traveling, I’ve got you covered. I can create an amazing cruise vacation, a magical Disney vacation, or a dream trip to Italy! I can get you going on your destination wedding and honeymoon, or plan that anniversary trip to create memories for a lifetime!
I'm here before your trip. I keep checking prices, because if I can get the exact same trip at a lower price for you, I will work to do just that. I'm checking the status of flights, checking with the hotel or resort to make sure everything is set when you arrive.
And I'm here while you're on your trip. I promise I'll do everything I can for you! I don't want you to be stranded in a strange town in the middle of the night!
Even if you only need to book a hotel because you’re heading to your family reunion in your Home Town, and you refuse to sleep in your Great Aunt Georgia's guest room because it smells like mothballs...
(someone out there just nodded their head... you know it's true!)
