At Cardinal Travel Agency LLC , we know that planning the perfect getaway can be time-consuming, overwhelming, and stressful.

From researching resorts to identifying the perfect island destination, or figuring out which cruise ship and itinerary fits your style; planning your dream vacation can quickly turn from optimism, enthusiasm, and anticipation into disappointment, confusion, and frustration.

It shouldn't be that way.

When we plan vacations for our clients, they feel excited, confident, and relaxed.

Our travel planning fee includes matching our clients with the perfect itinerary through extensive research of destinations, flights, accommodations, tours, transfers, and insurance as well as staying abreast of the rules, policies, and booking regulations for each segment of the trip.

Our attention to detail allows you to sit back, relax, and enjoy your vacation. 

Your Dream Vacation Planning Process

Our goal at Cardinal Travel Agency is to help clients explore the world through incredible personalized vacation experiences. Our planning process covers all the details so you can enjoy the journey and make memories that will last a lifetime.


Connection and Discovery

Let's talk! Click the "schedule consultation" button above to pick your day and time. During this initial call, we will explore your travel dreams, desires, and expectations. We want to know your vision for your experience and will share our service structure. This discussion will help us determine if we are a good fit to work together. If we are, and you want to hire us, we'll move on to step two.



After the initial consultation, we send you a detailed overview of our conversation, our client agreement form, and the professional planning fee invoice. Once the paperwork is returned and processed, we work with our travel partners to create personalized itinerary choices for your dream vacation.



After we send you the itinerary choices, we'll talk again to determine which one best fits your wishes; then, we'll take it from there. Each trip segment will be booked, and insurance and excursion options will be offered. We'll also be available to answer any questions and will provide guidance every step of the way so that you can look forward to your trip with confidence. 


Travel Time

You will be sent the final itinerary and all supporting travel documents approximately two weeks before travel, or you can access them from our client portal at any time. All reservations will be verified and reconfirmed a few days before your trip to help ensure everything is in place for you to have a fantastic time on your vacation. While we expect everything to unfold as planned, you have the extra security of knowing we are here for you if you need assistance while away.


Follow Up

We love to hear about the memories that you made on your amazing vacation! So, we will connect with you within a few days of your return to ensure everything went as planned and hear about your experience. In addition, we will reference your feedback when booking your next trip to ensure it is even more enjoyable than your last vacation.
