Expert tip: As a general rule, we hate kitschy travel gear that you don't need that weighs you down. But you need these: Packing Cubes. Roll your clothes into them and you will fit way more into your bag. Bonus, you can easily find things later and stay organized. They are totally worth it. #packright #travelsmart ...

Links?!?! Willingness to lend to your sister? 😬
I’ve never seen these before either. Genius! I put them on my Christmas list. And...a different color for every member of the family!
I've never seen this before. Good idea!
How do the clothes look when they come out? Are they a wrinkled mess. Not that I'm fundamentally against being a wrinkled mess...
I think Hannels are surviving on these things!!! One for each person of different cork or for each. I need to get some!!!
I need these in my life. Amanda swears by them of course. HA!

"Would you take a look at this?"
A quick 👀 can save big $$$ and big headaches.
Internet travel shopping can be tricky as industries try to make it harder and harder to compare quotes directly. We help you see if a deal is "too good to be true". Or, we can help you get a reputable vendor to match a sketchy internet shop so you save $$ AND have great service.
This week, we helped a client see hidden checked bag fees and a sketchy airport transfer that would be adding hours of transportation time. It pays to #loveyourtravelagent #travelsmart #askyouragent ... See MoreSee Less

"My son is swamped and getting married in two weeks...they STILL don't have a honeymoon. Can you help?" ~Mother-of-the-Groom, Client
Yep! Count them 1,2,3 last-minute honeymoons were booked this week. Weddings are a busy time. Honeymoon planning does NOT have to contribute to that if you travel smart and use a travel planner.
After all that craziness is over...the 🏖️ awaits the new Mr.& Mrs. 💍 #travelsmart #honeymoonhelp ... See MoreSee Less

Pro Tip: Natural disasters can soften even the crankiest of the travel industry (We're looking 👀 at you, Airlines ✈️ ).
If you have damaged plans with penalties due to the hurricanes, call 📱 and ASK. Many are waiving a lot of change fees right now to try to help.#travelingcompasstips #dontbeagrouch #travelsmart ... See MoreSee Less

Want a peak at someone's last minute honeymoon 💍?!?
Settle in at a boutique, remote hotel on the side of a massive volcano 🌋 with panoramic views around each corner in gorgeous Costa Rica.
Enjoy some of the 7 natural hot springs pool incorporated into the property after a long day of zip lining across a rainforest 🌳 🌺🌳🐸🦋canopy and hiking past recent lava flows 😮.
Rest up for another day of rappelling down waterfalls and white water rafting 🚣.
Then leave the adventure behind to head for a volcanic sand beach 🌊 🍹👙 at a luxury all-inclusive where you can spot 🐒 from the shore.
Bragging rights? Oh you bet.
So excited for our sweet clients who just booked this!! #honeymoonhelp #smartvacay ... See MoreSee Less
