New York, New York Travel Agent
My Life in Travel
If you look at a Broadway Playbill from the 1970s, chances are you might see “Travel by Gloria” listed in the credits. For many years, I arranged the travel for Broadway shows touring around the USA, Europe, and Asia.
It was a logical specialty for me. After earning a political science degree, I came to New York and worked in the casting department for the television show, “Naked City,” then at “What’s My Line” and other shows. But when the television studios moved to California, I had to rethink my career if I wanted to stay in New York. I had traveled more than most people and loved encountering new cultures, so I took a one-week travel agent training course. Then I called everyone I knew from TV became “the entertainment travel agent.”
Because of the relationships I forged with producers and directors, soon I was planning luxury travel for executives and their families. I became a specialist in custom vacation planning to the Caribbean, Europe, and especially Africa, and have developed expertise in planning family reunion, grandparent, and independent travel.
Responsiveness and proactive detail-oriented follow-through are my hallmarks. When you phone or email with a travel question, I will answer in real time. I also notify every hotel, guide, and provider involved in your trip that you are a VIP and require priority attention. I can’t make you have a good time, but I can make sure everyone is expecting you and doing their best to make you happy.
As a Protravel International travel agent, I also can provide added-value amenities and, in many cases, upgrades to your trip. These might include complimentary breakfasts, spa or food credits, and late check-out at hotels, and discounted pricing on some international front-of-plane airfares.
With me as your travel agent, you can travel with confidence, knowing that I have the expertise to plan the right trip for you and your family. I also have the on-the-ground contacts and Protravel International name to ensure that you get top treatment wherever you go. And if there are unexpected delays or crises, I am never more than an email or a phone call away.
Whether you want to go to Dubrovnik or Walt Disney World, a luxury cruise or a multi-destination journey by private plane through Africa, I have the experience to create a journey that will create treasured memories for a lifetime.
