TDI: What kind of travel do you prefer for your own travels?
KL: I definitely prefer adventure travel. I have a great love of animals and prefer travel in the out of doors such as hiking trips, exploring remote areas of the world, and experiencing the cultures of third world countries. An example would be when I went horseback riding in Nepal in the Himalayas for three days.
TDI: What are some of your favorite destinations to send your clients?
KL: I like to book people to Europe, cruises, tours, and I especially like Italy as a destination. I also enjoy taking groups to Africa.
TDI: What sort of travel do you find yourself arranging most frequently?
KL: I work the hardest and most frequently on organizing group travel. I do a lot of tours.
TDI: In this day and age, why do you believe that people need/should use a travel consultant?
KL: People should absolutely work with a travel consultant. There is a lot of misinformation out there about our fees, so I explain that clients don’t pay anything extra for us to arrange a trip for them*. The benefits they get from having us do their travel are huge because we can build the best trips for them, we are there to back them up if there is a problem, and we usually get much better pricing than they can get. It’s a no-brainer.
*Some agents may charge a service fee for arranging certain types of travel.
