From Our Clients...

Special Experience

"Appreciated the desire and willingness to do whatever it took to make our trip memorable.  There are always things that can't be helped [flight delays] but it was easy to see the effort put into making the experience special." 
– Janet B. - AMABella - Holiday Markets 2014

Service & Savings

“I have thrown just about every curveball I've got at Rachel and your folks and you've handled them all without breaking a sweat. A long cruise with tours in a foreign country? No problem. Erratic friends who can't make up their mind if they want to go or not? No problem. Last minute hotel bookings needed? No problem. And should I mention the bonuses? Getting random calls to let us know we've been upgraded in our cabin or the cruise fare has dropped? Extra onboard credit? I use a travel agency so I don't have to worry. With TravelPerks, not only do I not have to worry, I'm happily surprised at the GOOD that happens. I recommend TravelPerks on ANY opportunity I've got.”
– Dante G - Program Manager @ Microsoft

Spectacular Shore Excursions

"Everything worked out even better than planned. On all three shore excursions we met people in the bus who said they appreciated those excursions and they were far better than the ones offered by the ship. We, too, were impressed with the quality of the excursions and tour guides. The cruise was spectacular and all the arrangements made in advance were spectacular."
– Jayne W. - Norwegian Cruise Line


"You guys are awesome.  You were very patient in taking my calls more than a few times, changed rooms according to our need couple of times and finally even sent the cash back check." 
– Kesari - Carnival Miracle

Unique Travel Experiences

"TravelPerks provides us their unique personal touch on all of our cruises to make it successful" 
– Leslie Gaffney - Former Executive @ Sony

Never a Single Problem

"We've never had a single problem with the people or the bookings at TravelPerks. I talked with someone in the shuttle to LAX and their holiday was a booking disaster so I gave them your web address with high recommendations.." 
– Robert C. - DisneyLand Vacation
