New York, New York Travel Agent
Luxury Travel Advisor
A resident of Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York, Tom Schmidt began his career in hospitality booking vacations for his high school friends, and later as a reservation clerk for Delta Airlines. Growing up with a father who worked for an airline, Tom planned family vacations to places like Disneyland.
Later, his father bought into a travel agency, and Tom joined as a travel advisor and has never looked back. Now 40 years later, he is an Elite Corporate, Leisure and Wellness Specialist with the industry-leading Tzell Travel Group. Over the course of his career, Tom has traveled the globe, cultivating insider knowledge of luxury hotels and resorts; family vacation, spas & wellness destination and luxury cruises.
“I love the unexpected phone calls I get where I can really use my imagination to put a trip together for a client, especially when the client thinks will be a simple ‘summer trip’ and I blow their mind by turning it into the experience of a lifetime," says Tom.
He adds, "As a traveler, I feel that having someone you can trust, who will cater to your every whim and knowing everything will be done seamlessly is the definition of luxury. I also feel that little extra amenities, whether it be chocolate on a pillow or champagne upon arrival is luxurious.”
Tom especially loves booking luxury ocean cruises for his clients. “I found being aboard the Crystal Serenity for ten days with my wife and exploring all of Europe to be a remarkable adventure."
For luxury hotels, resorts and villas, Tom has access to exclusive VIP rates and amenities all over the world due to Tzell's vast array of preferred partners. In addition to giving his clients insider knowledge from his own extensive travel experience, Tom matches his clients with the perfect luxury vacation to suite their taste.

Mother / Daughter road trip
Glad you and Angie enjoyed my choices of luxury resorts where we were able to add amenities like breakfast and $100 resort credits. Thank you for letting me steer you around Florida !!!
The trip of a lifetime!
Not only did he find me the perfect 3 week trip through Europe, but he helped me plan every step of the way. He found me an amazing priced flight, a super convenient hotel in London, and then a tour group for my age that went throughout 7 countries and 10 cities.
Tom helped me plan the trip of a lifetime and I couldn’t imagine having done any of this without him!

Wonderful family trip to CA
Trip of a Lifetime
He helped my wife and I create a 5 week European self guided trip (trains, planes & automobiles) of a lifetime.
He also followed us throughout our trip to ensure we were well cared for (e.g. making recommendations for restaurants, faster ways to travel between countries and dealing wit COVID testing).
I plan on using Tom again and again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a real caring, professional.
