Feeding Your Wanderlust and Creating Extraordinary Vacations

After being cooped up for the past year due to Covid-19, most of us are beyond ready to fly the coop and take a vacation – all the while being safe!

“This is why it is especially even more important than ever to use a travel agent for your vacations,” Stephanie Pickles of Pickles Vacations explains, “Covid has changed things and things change on a daily basis. We get daily updates from hotels, tours, countries on different on restrictions and availabilities and that is what we specialize in – knowing everything ahead of time so we can take the absolute best care of our clients.”

“It is a great time right now for travel – we are really on top of all of the details for our clients. We take care of everything so they don’t have to – all they have to do is focus on enjoying their vacation while our staff takes care of all the details.”

“We strive to have relationships with our clients. And keeping in constant contact with our client family is a crucial element,” Stephanie emphasizes.

Stephanie and her experienced and specialized staff know firsthand the wanderlust and the desire to travel.

Traveling and taking vacations is what brings not just their clients joy, but also their staff. And it is no wonder.  “Our staff is family and we consider our clients like family and treat them with the utmost care.”

Considered a luxury agency, ‘because we go above and beyond to create not just vacations, but lifetime memorable experiences’ for their clients.

The word luxury does not mean you can’t afford a vacation and Stephanie is adamant, “Everyone can afford a vacation! You tell us what your budget is and we do everything we can to make sure your experience is like no other.”
