Mandy has been helping my aunt and I plan our annual trip for a couple years now and each time has been amazing! She’s so helpful and knowledgeable about every location we consider. Don’t know what i’d do without her!

We used Mandy at Traveling Compass to plan and book our Disney World vacation. She was able to help us in so many ways with both planning and scheduling our trip to ensure we got the most out of it. She helped with booking dining reservations, special accommodations and anything else we requested. She was very easy to work with and always got back to us quickly when we sent a question or request. She was full of helpful tips and tricks that we utilized while in the parks. She was a treasure to work with. I highly recommend Mandy!

We use the Traveling Compass for all of our organization's international travel planning. They handle complex itineraries with ease and are always very prompt at answering questions and helping when there is a need. Using the Traveling Compass takes a big chunk of work off of our plates so we can focus on the trip itself and not the planning.

Absolutely flawless experience. All taken care of for you promptly and perfectly. I barely lifted a finger to provide what was needed. Tell her where you want to go, she finds you the best place to match the criteria, and you're on your way. You won't be disappointed!

Why Use a Travel Agent?

Our travel agents have extensive travel experience. Their best (and worst) personal trips have created expertise that is imbedded in every aspect of our trip designs so you benefit. We routinely travel to visit the properties and destinations we recommend. We are constantly in classes to be up-to-date on the latest changes and innovations in travel.  

We listen and get to know you. We remember that your kid only eats chicken nuggets or your spouse likes pools with shade. We work one-on-one with you on and match each trip’s needs to a designer’s expertise. You talk with a person, not a call center. As we work with you over a lifetime, we help translate the things you love to new and exciting destinations and stages of life.

Some travel companies and search websites only offer a narrow variety of hotels and tours. You don’t get the full picture of what’s available or choices that might fit you best. We don’t do that. As independent travel agents, we work with the best vendors across hundreds of companies to bring you the best possible trip.

A travel agent can do so much more for you than just booking plane tickets and making hotel reservations. Check out these often overlooked benefits of having a travel agent in your corner.

Except it's not fiction. It's real. River cruising is all about experiencing the incredible destinations of Europe in remarkable ways.⁠ ⁠ First built in the 1177 and then rebuilt with the stone arches in 1234, the Pont Saint-Bénézet bridge marks Avignon. We recommend that you also stop for some macarons, cheese and wine, and tapenades to taste the regional specialities.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #thetravelingcompass #memoriesstarthere #rivercruise #France #vacationinspiration #anniversary #travelagain

But you don't have to stay sad, you can cheer up with local chocolate and gorgeous vistas from this beautiful Swiss city. Located along the Rhine river valley, this is often one of the last stops after passengers have taken in the beauties of the full Rhine experience. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #memoriesstarthere #thetravelingcompass #Lucerne #rhine #nextvacation #Switzerland

5 Things you may not know about The Traveling Comp 5 Things you may not know about The Traveling Compass...⁠ ⁠ 1) I own more than half a dozen of these SPF shirts for swim and travel. They are not cool. But my poor pale self doesn't care and refuses to have sun poisoning or painful sunburns while traveling {again}. #beentheredonethat⁠ ⁠ 2) I'm married to a CEO who has taught me the value of time. Time away from distractions is the single most precious, expensive currency in our home. So how we spend those moments matters a great deal to us. It's one of the big reasons I'm passionate as a travel advisor about the investment of your vacation time into the best experiences. ⁠ ⁠ 3) I love croissants. Perfect ones. I will straight up judge a hotel by the level of croissants and the quality of the butter they serve at breakfast. I don't joke around when it comes to proper pasty dough.⁠ ⁠ 4) One of my favorite souvenirs are Christmas ornaments. We have them from all over the world. ⁠ ⁠ 5) I love watching ocean waves roll in. I could do it for hours and hours for days. It drives my family nuts.🤣 ⁠ ⁠ Just wanted to pop in and say hi! What about you? What's something quirky you do while traveling?⁠ ⁠ #thetravelingcompass #memoriesstarthere

Known for having a beach for every day of the year, (365) this small island boasts all the sand and sun you could want.⁠ ⁠ Small boutique hotels and large all-inclusive resorts abound here...there's something for everyone. Over-the-water bungalows? They have those too (without the 10 hours of flying to the South Pacific). ⁠ ⁠ We can't wait for a special couple to get enjoy their first married trip here!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #antigua #pooltime #swimup #honeymooninspiration #honeymoondestination #anniversarytrip #welovestlucia #luxurytravelagent #nextvacation #vacationinspiration #honeymoonideas #honeymoontrip #bestvacations #gettingmarried #romanticplace #beachresort #dreamwedding #weddingdestination #honeymoonvibes #dreamhoneymoon #paradise #couplesretreat #romance #weddinginspiration #thetravelingcompass #memoriesstarthere⁠ ⁠
