I am a born and raised Texan, and currently live in Austin. I am a Former Student from Texas A&M, where I studied Philosophy. I live with my pup, Kuzco, and my partner, Reggie. I love traveling, but half the fun is planning the trips. I wanted to follow my passion for planning into a business and created Adventures By Allie!
I have experience traveling solo, with friends, family, and as a couple. Some of my favorite trips have been solo trips and I truly feel that one of the best ways to show yourself love is to travel alone. I love returning to Disneyland, Los Angeles, Denver, Boulder, Estes Park, Seattle, and Puerta Vallarta! I visit Houston, Galveston, San Antonio, and College Station often!
When you book with Adventures By Allie, you will find three values come to life: Honesty, Open Communication, and Dedication.
Anyone can book a hotel, flight, or even an all-inclusive resort. When you allow a travel consultant to guide your vacation, you have access to all of the information that the agent has gained, from personal experience, feedback from their customers, and the hours of research that they have done to assist you with your vacation. Travel agents are a great source of information and discounts! A travel consultant can make sure that your trip is tailored to you, assist you in case of unexpected problems, and help you anticipate potential issues in advance.
I have completed numerous education programs for many of the destinations and services that I book with, I keep up with the newest travel details, and spend time catering each booking to my client's needs.
Your first step to booking your trip with Adventures By Allie will start with filling out my Consultation Form. You will describe to me who will be taking the trip, what you want and don't want to happen on your trip, and other trip details such as budget.
Next, we will meet for a free consultation discussion where we go over the form you submitted, any questions you may have, and I will ask any questions I have. We will explore the different locations you are considering and all other variables of your future trip.
If you decide that you want to book with Adventures By Allie, I will collect the $150 non-refundable consultation fee and get started on finding you options for your stay, transportation, dining, and activities. I will create an itinerary for you and be as involved as you would like, even reserving your dining reservations. I want to encourage open communication, so if anything changes for you or your trip, please reach out to me so that I can help you with this plan!
Once you decide you are ready to book your trip, I will collect a $200 deposit. This is non-refundable, but will fully go towards your trip unless you cancel your trip and/or book a non-refundable trip.
While I highly suggest purchasing travel insurance, if you decide to opt out then you will be required to sign a waiver acknowledging this risk.
While you have more security when booking through an agent, and better discounts, I understand if you would prefer to book yourself and just want access to my expertise. After your first free consultation, I charge $150. For more extensive research and/or longer trips, there may be a higher consultation fee which will be discussed in the first consultation and during the planning process. I will find you hotel, dining, transportation, and activity recommendations for your stay. I will also include prices for your stay, and a Rough Draft of an itinerary.
