MEREDITH STRACK | LUXURY COUPLE AND FAMILY TRAVEL | STRACK TRAVEL
WHAT WE DO
Having your own professional and certified travel advisor is like having a private concierge for all things travel - qualified, experienced, knowledgeable, connected, and always working to make your next trip the best one you've ever had.
Our professional planning fees cover a wide variety of tasks and services including but not limited to:
Domestic and international air (commercial + private)
Resorts, hotels, and villas
River & ocean cruises
Day tours and excursions
Dining & entertainment reservations
Unique cultural experiences
HOW IT CHANGES YOUR TRAVEL EXPERIENCE
Our clients often receive additional amenities and benefits from our travel partners.
You won't lose tens or hundreds of hours each trip staring at a screen with dozens of tabs open.
You won't go around in researching circles so many times that you miss the best opportunities.
Most likely you are taking a vacation to disconnect and unwind - you'll no longer start that off with months of stressful planning.
You'll never wonder what experiences or opportunities you didn't know about that you might have missed.
Your entire experience will be professionally planned and documented.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIY
Awful hotel rooms that don't match the brochure-like images
Travel insurance that doesn't actually work when you need it
Waiting on hold for days at a time to airlines, cruise lines, hotels, and tour companies when you have a question or need help
Tired and frustrated fellow travelers
Wasted time trying to get from point A to B
Poor document preparation
Denied entry and re-entry
Finding out activities and sites are closed or have limited hours when you arrive
Struggling to find dining options in a limited capacity or busy seasons
RESEARCH AND DESIGN FEES
Our research and design fees are a one-time payment per household per trip. We will book all elements of your travel as listed above.
White-Glove Planning Fee
$175 / household
This white-glove planning fee allows us to plan, research and book every element of your vacation for all-inclusive trips such as Mexico/Caribbean or theme park destinations, all while staying within your budget and in alignment with your personal travel style. We'll organize your itinerary from start to finish, connect you with all the right people in your destination, and make sure you have access to support before, during, and after your return.
White-Glove Planning Fee for Hawaii/Alaska/Europe
$350 / household
This white-glove planning fee allows us to plan, research and book every element of your vacation for more complicated itineraries such as Hawaii, Alaska, or Europe, all while staying within your budget and in alignment with your personal travel style. We'll organize your itinerary from start to finish, connect you with all the right people in your destination, and make sure you have access to support before, during, and after your return.
Group Travel Planning
$350 / group
Before bringing together a group of your favorite friends, family, followers, or clients we will work with the group organizer to curate the perfect itinerary. Each traveling household will then work with us individually to align their travel arrangements with the group plan, while at the same time meeting their personal travel needs. This is a planning and research service only. Additional individual planning fees apply.
Emergency Support / Rebooking Fee
$250 / household
Need to cancel your trip or rebook the same vacation for a later date? We can take care of the tiny details from canceling each element of your current booking to confirming new dates. Should you need rebooking services while you are away we can also take full care of that.
*Longer stays and multiple destinations price upon request
If you have never worked with a professional travel advisor before (or a great one), you'll find our process effective and efficient.
GET IN TOUCH
Fill out the inquiry form to begin the travel inquiry process by clicking the GET STARTED button below. You're not committing to anything other than having a conversation about your travel ideas and wish list!
Schedule a time for us to dive into ALL the details of your trip. We'll talk through everything to make sure we're on the same page. Based on our discussion, we'll then share our research and design fee and next steps.
RESEARCH, PRESENTATION AND ADJUSTMENTS
We will present you with a full itinerary containing options for travel, activities and accommodation based on our discussion, experience, and supplier contacts. Request any small adjustments before we lock in your trip itinerary.
After you've made your decision, we'll send you the invoice with your supplier deposit to secure the trip, as well as our client agreement. Deposits/amounts are contingent on vendor relationships. We can work with you on a payment schedule, and we'll process your payments as requested until the final due date.
WHILE YOU ARE AWAY
We will only ever be an email, text, or call away if you need us. In the event that you need to activate your emergency support plan we will be on standby and ready to help.
You'll also have a free app called Trip Plans to access your entire trip itinerary on the go, which also provides flight updates, and additional recommendations for travel.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST
The only feeling better than getting home is having your next trip in the pipeline. We'll get you scheduled for that next trip right away whether you want to take in a month or a year.
