PLANNING PROCESS

 Creating memories that matter

Complimentary Personal Vacation Consultation

Step 1

This is when I find out what you want, what you are looking for and what you want to get out of your time away. I take into account your interests, your travel style, the type of accommodations you want and what you like to do before I recommend a destination.

If you have a destination in mind, I will use the information I gained from our consultation to design a vacation that is perfect for you.

It's easy to create memories that matter when you allow Elite Travel Journeys to design your itinerary with every component of your vacation.

Do you wonder how I provide travel planning services that deliver family vacations filled with every necessary component for ease, discovery, and relaxation, so you can create memories that matter?

Below I share my Create Memories That Matter Travel Planning Process that guarantees you will get the family vacation you are dreaming of.

You only need to relax, enjoy your family vacation adventure and make new memories.

Deciding Where to Go & What to Do

Step 2

Multigenerational travel needs multigenerational activities, so I would look for destinations that offered events for both grandparents and grandchildren. Some things I considered include: if grandma could walk that far, if my child would be bored, and if we had time to spend together as well as our independence.

Finding a place to suit everyone's needs and limitations made our trip versatile and special.

Accommodations

Wherever my family decides to go on vacation, we make sure we are comfortable. We need our own personal space; otherwise, annoyances would begin to brew. So, proper living space is a necessity to keep the bond and experience positive.

There are many options available and with my help, we will find the right one for your family. Staying in a single villa is a favorite option; we get our own rooms and have the option to cook when and what we want. If a whole house isn't possible, then I will get multiple rooms and split everyone up evenly. This was also fun since my kids loved to jump from room to room and stay with a new family member each night.


Transportation

Your vacation starts with traveling to your destination. I will find the best flights on your preferred airline that will not have you wasting precious time at the airport.

Once you arrive, your ground transportation will be waiting to whisk you away to your hotel.

Throughout your stay, the rest of your ground transportation will be pre-arranged so you will always know where you are going and how you are getting there.


Day Tours and Experiences

Day tours and special experiences all enhance your vacation and we provide these options in your itinerary.

Want to do a museum tour, a guided tour in a European village, wine tasting in a local winery, a farm to table dinner with a local family, we make sure you EXPERIENCE your destination.

And to make sure your favorite destinations are part of your memories, I will include a photo shoot for you in your favorite city.

The Family Experience of a Lifetime

Step 3

I plan a vacation that leaves you with a new perspective on life, family and the world as a whole. When you truly experience the world, not just visit it, you will be forever changed for the better.

You are never alone, I am with you from our first call to our last upon your return, and everywhere in between..

"Finish Line BEST TRIP OF MY LIFE ! Let me just say that I tried local agents had no luck. Then did a google search for northeast Pa. for Travel Agents and about 50 people popped up. Tracy Schatz was the only one that had specializing in Bucket Lists. My son was running a marathon from Mt. Everest Base Camp in Nepal down to a village called Namche Bazaar in Nepal. I told her I want to be there when he crosses the finish line. I had no idea how to go about this trip , I have never been over seas before. Tracy took over and I thank God she did. She set the whole thing up for me from start to finish !!!!! When she tells you don't worry about anything she means it. I can't explain how smooth the trip went from the time I landed in Kathmandu in Nepal till the time I left. There was someone there to guide me through everything. My guide was great !!! She did a great job!!!"

"Working with Tracy exceeded all of our expectations. She had answers to all of our questions, generated our trip options based upon the experience and atmosphere we wanted to have and was immediately responsive when any ripple in the plan occurred. Tracy is an exceptional agent and we will use her services again for trips in the future. When our flight was delayed, Tracy sent us turn by turn instructions for navigating through the airport to make our next flight in time. When my wife needed medical care, Tracy coordinated for nurses to meet us as we exited the shuttle from the airport to the resort. She went above and beyond in all regards."

"Tracy has planned multiple trips for us (our family & friends) and we have never been disappointed. She really listens to what her clients are looking for and gives a variety of options. We have been to California (San Francisco & Napa), Niagara Falls – Canada, The Fingers Lakes in New York and Belize, all of which she has planned. While in Belize we had a family emergency and she came through immediately to help with the changing of our travel plans."
