Luana Johnsgaard

 Certified Travel Counsellor

My career in travel began in 1982 fresh out of high school with great ambition and desire for adventure.  I've been fortunate to have travelled to much of Europe of which Belgium, Italy, France, Spain and Greece are among my favorites!  

I have also experienced a private Safari in Kenya, a Jungle lodge and Hot Springs in Costa Rica, Zip-lining, River and Ocean Cruises, Meandering through the Kasbah in Morocco, Shopping in Hong Kong, Exploring Bali and Thailand, Diving and Snorkeling in the Caribbean, and Deep Sea Fishing in the Indian Ocean.  It's a beautiful world that we live in and it is here for all of us to explore and take care of!

 

My passion is coordinating every detail for my clients' vacation
as though it is my own.  Whether it's a river cruise, a cycling tour through Provence, or a private villa among vineyards in Tuscany, every detail will be in order.  
  
Whether travelling solo, as a couple, with family or a group of friends, just leave all the work to me.  I've arranged many Wedding groups over the years and take pride in my work.  My clients' best interest is always of first and foremost importance.   I'm blessed to have great clients, many whom have become like friends over the years.  I always enjoy meeting and getting to know people and would love the opportunity to design your dream trip!

5 Reasons Why to Deal with a Professional Travel Consultant

Like buying a house through a Realtor, or using a Mortgage Broker ... a Travel Consultants experience is invaluable and can save you money, disappointment and time. Why spend hours online comparing details and sorting through misleading information when you can make one call to a professional travel consultant who has all of the resources to coordinate everything you want often at the same rate or even better than online.  

The best price is often not the best value! 

Booking online requires full payment, but a travel consultant usually only requires a deposit with the balance due usually 6-8 weeks prior! Also...online Agencies often have inexperienced staff, located in countries outside of Canada who do not understand many important logistics, and do not personally care about your travel experience. 

Travel consultants rely on repeat business and referrals so your best interests are theirs too!

If anything unexpected should arise you will not spend hours trying to resolve matters yourself, waiting on queue's or on hold to speak with someone online.  

One call to your Travel Consultant with direct contact to supplier representatives and / or management means that you will be looked after with less stress and usually faster!

A dedicated Travel Consultant knows and can advise on many important travel requirements and documentation.  They also receive information on special promotions and knows which suppliers offer the best value for their clients.  

Travel Consultants can save you the pain of being denied entry because you don't have the correct documentation or visas.     

Dealing with a professional, well-traveled, full-time travel consultant with over 30 years experience offers nothing but benefits for any traveler.
