New York, New York Travel Agent
My Travel Agent Life
I have always loved everything about travel, from the exciting new experiences to the people I come in contact with. Knowing that was the world I wanted to be in, I went to travel school right out of high school. Today, 35 years later, I still love what I do.
Before joining Tzell Travel Group 12 years ago, I worked at four different agencies. Now, I feel like I’ve found my home. The support we get—and can pass on to our clients—is tremendous.
In addition to perks and VIP treatment at many of the top hotels in the world, our clients often can receive discounted fares for front-of-the-cabin airline seats as well as priority treatment. I also can arrange a meet-and-greet service if you would like to be whisked through airports and not have to navigate through the crush of people.
I’m familiar with the top cruises lines and often suggest them as a way to travel in luxury to exotic places. Many of my clients love Oceania Cruises and other luxury lines, and some have been on as many as 24 cruises to destinations around the world.
One of the best parts of my job is my clients. Most have been with me for decades. Sometimes I start out planning their business trips, and then they ask me to plan their personal travel. The most fun has been to see them get married, have kids, grandkids, and then plan their multi-generational family vacations. It’s like having a second set of family relationships.
