VACATION PLANNING

Need some help with your annual family vacation? How about a girl’s weekend? Maybe a fishing trip with the guys? I've got your back. We’ll work together
to make sure you get as much value for your dollar as possible, often exploring creative ways to save
money.
Travel Services are paid by the vendors that are chosen for your amazing vacation. That means you're not spending a dime for my help.  
“The most attentive, responsive, and HONEST travel agent I have ever met.
She will help you get the best deal there is, even on the
rare occasion that it's not with her. I always thought traveling had to be expensive
and that was just the way it is- she has taught me that's not true.”

ESCORTED TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES

Escorted Travel offers an array of value driven benefits including:


An Expert Guide
I’m with you on these trips, offering faster and better customer service for any questions or concerns that come up during your trip.


Events
Each escorted trip comes with the opportunity to attend private, highly discounted (or even free!) events or excursions several times per trip.

Community
Escorted travel is the perfect answer for solo travelers and families alike. Everyone has a friend and someone to talk with, sharing at least travel as a common interest to break the ice.
Swag
Swag bags, lanyards, and/or other memorabilia are par for the course. Occasionally, certain trips may carry an administrative fee to cover certain items in this category.

Freedom

Group travel can be rigid. You’re often stuck taking (and paying for) activities you have no interest in doing. That’s not the Travel with Mandy Loo way.

My escorted events and excursions are billed separately from the trip, giving you the freedom to pick and choose only what interests you the most. With me, you’ll enjoy escorted travel benefits on your own terms and within your own budget.

I offer one, maybe two, escorted travel opportunities per year. Many of my clients plan their annual
vacation around that year’s escorted trip due to the value it offers. This loyalty results in an enthusiastic travel community that feels a bit like a family reunion.
“My first escorted trip with Mandy was so much fun that I booked
the next year’s trip right away. And then I booked another… and another…
It’s just enough structure to get me seeing places without any of the
rigid pace of tour bus travel. Plus, it’s social and FUN!
I can’t wait to travel with the people I met on that trip again and again!”

VIP TRAVEL
PLANNING SERVICES

Some trips are extra special and require more time and attention. For the discerning client, I am pleased to offer VIP planning services. This is the perfect planning style for “bucket-list” destinations where you have specific things you want to do, special places you want to see, and need an efficient way to sort through the sea of options to find the best way to utilize every moment of your trip.

I’ll work with you to create an individualized trip that includes meals, activities, and even public or private
transportation. Limos or subway lines- it's your choice.

At the close of our planning, you’ll receive a beautifully prepared travel portfolio to take with you on your trip. It typically includes daily itineraries, walking directions to the destination’s best sights, event and tour tickets, all confirmations and receipts, restaurant suggestions, and tips from my personal experiences in that destination.
With VIP planning services, you’ll feel like a local before you even arrive.

Due to the intense research, time commitment, and dedication that VIP trip planning requires, it does
carry an additional fee of 10% of your total budget.

However, by paying this fee, you set me free to
explore all booking options (including vacation home rentals) as opposed to only using vendors who
have agreed to pay my fees for you.

Any client who has chosen a VIP trip has never gone back to traditional planning.

I am proud to connect you with past guests so that you can hear about the value of VIP Trip planning for yourself.
“Just got back from an epic vacation that Mandy
took a particularly impressive amount of attention to.
All the small details and communication
about the trip made it fun and easy.”

DESTINATION WEDDINGS

White sand beach with crystal clear waves splashing in the background while steel drums serenade
your wedding guests and a tropical breeze dances across your bare feet.

A destination wedding is the stuff of fairy tales.
But it’s also a lot of work. With lots of moving parts, different international marriage laws, and potentially a language barrier to contend with, why not let a team of experts plan your big day for you?

*Accepting limited clients for destination weddings.  
Once we find a destination that keeps you in budget, I’ll partner with an onsite wedding planner to manage every detail of your big day, including travel arrangements for you and your guests. All you have to do is say, “I Do.”

Pending the size of your guest list, your wedding may even qualify as an “escorted” travel experience,
offering all of the perks and benefits mentioned above. All of this at no additional cost to you. It’s the best value in the wedding industry.

This is also a great idea for honeymoon planning! 
"Mandy found us a beautiful resort with the perfect
ceremony location, at the perfect price. She handled our flights,
booked our resort, helped us get our marriage license, and coordinated with
our wedding consultant to make the perfect day for us!
Mandy even set up our first dinner as husband and wife
along the beautiful beach at sunset!

MYSTERY TRAVEL

Are you adventurous? Always up for something new? If so, mystery travel could be perfect for you!

We’ll talk about places you’ve been and places you’ve always wanted to go. I listen as you describe things you love to do, and things you never want to try.

We’ll explore your range of availability to travel and the budget that you have.
Then I plan something spectacular that I know you’ll love … but you won’t find out where it is until the
day you leave. (Don’t worry, you’ll be able to approve of dates, times, final budget, and any other important details before anything is ever booked.)

I’m happy to connect you with past mystery travel clients if you wish so that you can hear first-hand
how exciting this kind of travel can be!
"I was nervous about Mystery Travel, but when Mandy started
offering it I took a chance and booked it! Mandy's vast
knowledge of travel paired with how well she really listens to
her clients translates into a real-life adventure in your
Mystery Trip.

I never would have chosen Boston as a place
to go on vacation, but now we are planning a return trip
because we loved it so much!"
