About Us

Why do we do what we do? 

Simply stated, we were founded on the belief that you can provide a great deal and still provide great service – we use our love of travel to bring our SAVINGS, SERVICE, SATISFACTION motto to you. We are obsessively passionate about this and work every day to save you money and time while cultivating the best possible travel experience.

A little about us

From an early age, Theresa and I have always loved to travel. I went on my first Caribbean cruise at age14 and Theresa embarked on a grand three-year adventure to the Philippines at 21. We were born travelers and, since that first spark of excitement so many years ago, we have not stopped exploring the world and stockpiling that knowledge and experience. Theresa and I have always had a work ethic that would rival most people. Theresa has a passion for protecting children and excelled in that field while working as a paralegal for the Department of Justice. Theresa won many awards in her service to children and their families. In 2014, the agency was growing at such a pace that the joint decision was made to have Theresa work at the agency full time as Co-Owner and V.P. of Sales. Our company's growth and ability to serve our clients has grown year over year and we are now proud to be the second-largest travel agency out of more than 1400 franchises! In 2018, I was honored as the Elite Cruise Counselor of the year through CLIA. This award is one of the top honors in our entire industry and solidified how our hard work and continued service to our clients has truly been recognized.

A little about our culture and team

Collectively, through our experience and with a dedicated team, came the goal of providing our clients the best service at the lowest price. A manageable expectation for most travel agencies would be to cater to one or the other. We knew the hurdles involved in curating both great service and the lowest price. So, in setting our goals, we knew very well it would be a challenge. Twenty years and too many awards to count later, we have a team and culture that is passionate about what they do and continue to do it every day. You no longer need to choose between the lowest price and the service you deserve. With us, you get both, every day, all year long.

Theresa and I continually work hard to nurture and cultivate a culture that attracts the best talent in the business. Many of our travel advisors and management staff have been with us for many years and continue to work and build upon their knowledge of the industry in continuous service to our clients. We have accomplished what we set out to do.

We don’t ask for your trust and business, we earn it!

Exceptional support through delayed vacation due to COVID

"Theresa was wonderful. We had been planning this Alaskan cruise since 2019 and then COVID hit and then we were still unsure about 2021 so we waited another year. Theresa took care of everything for us, checking in with us every couple of weeks and making sure that we were getting our checklist taken care of. Thank you, Theresa and TravelPerks Dream Vacations, we had a great time and cannot wait for our next cruise."

– Donna H. - Alaska Cruise, 2022

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

Flawless Honeymooning

"I used TravelPerks to book my honeymoon and had the pleasure of working with Matt Kim. He is very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to get you the best deals. Matt was extremely patient and was always prompt answering my emails. I definitely recommend using TravelPerks for all your vacation needs and their bonus deals are a plus. Thanks, Matt, for making vacation planning easy and stress free!"

Last-minute Caribbean Christmas Cruise

"We spontaneously decided our family wanted to go on a Caribbean cruise for the Christmas holidays, and with little/no time, turned to TravelPerks Dream Vacations to help select, book and make it happen. We have cruised two times before, with TravelPerks, both times, have been exceptional experiences and this was no different. Matt Kim, my Travel Advisor, was attentive, quickly understood what I was looking for, my parameters, cruise type, our preferences, likes/dislikes and we were able to find and secure the right cruise for us (7 day Norweggian cruise). He gave great suggestions in regard to rooms, room location, meals, excursions, add-on packages and also where we could save money. Leading up to cruise day, we had many questions that came up and Matt answered them all, quickly and expertly. Matt - thank you for making this a wonderful and unforgetable experience for our family!"

Booking a Vacation is FUN!

"In today’s environment, booking vacations is hard. Why? There are a million and one websites out there that all have information on them. You can look at peer reviews until you are blue in the face. Is this ship really that bad? Is it the best thing ever? Is the resort awesome? Was it an isolated incident? Who knows. And sorting through all of them and figuring out what is real and what is somebody making a mountain out of a molehill takes time.

Which is where Theresa comes in. We love working with her for our vacations. It generally involves a quick phone call giving her a budget and the vibe we are looking for. And then go on an awesome vacation. No pecking through reviews and pricing that should be written in hieroglyphics. Just straight-up advice and no-nonsense planning.

Prior to using Theresa’s team, I would spend hours planning and routing and reading. Now? I pick the phone up or I email the awesome team and they take care of me and we get to enjoy our vacation. If you are booking a large group or an intimate vacation, I highly recommend Theresa and her team. Awesome to do business with and they make vacations FUN!"
