Aanchal Gandhi

Beverly Hills, California Travel Agent

Well-Traveled, Expert Travel Advisor

Born in India, raised in Hong Kong and Singapore, and educated at Tulane University in New Orleans, I had seen a lot of the world even before becoming a travel agent. I continue to expand my horizons every year, and have traveled to almost every continent and dozens of countries. My personal travel experience and deep understanding of the travel industry enable me to create seamless journeys, tailored to your personal style and preferences.

After graduating college with a degree in finance, I spent four years as an equity salesperson with Goldman Sachs. However, my real love has always been travel and tourism, so when I was offered the chance to join Protravel International in its London office, I jumped at the opportunity, later returning to the U.S. 

My experience in the fast-paced and demanding world of Wall Street taught me to be attentive to the needs of my clients and to respond in the most efficient and cost-effective ways while maintaining high standards of quality and excellence. It also taught me the value of a good travel agent who can handle all the details of the trip so their travelers can focus on getting their business done or enjoying their vacation.

I enjoy planning both corporate and leisure travel, and often handle both for the same clients. On any given day, I might be planning a last-minute business trip for a Wall Street mogul, making travel arrangements for a Hollywood production team, or creating a personalized itinerary in New Zealand for a family or a honeymoon couple.  

I am very detail-oriented and organized, but more importantly, I take the time to understand your unique point of view so that in addition to providing what you request, I can offer creative suggestions to make your travels even more memorable. 

I know what a great feeling it is to be treated as a VIP with privileged access, so I try to make this happen wherever possible. At many top hotels around the world, my clients are greeted by name and offered VIP treatment that includes value-added extras such as free breakfast and Wi-Fi, food credits or other amenities. And while availability can never be guaranteed, I love when I can arrange for you to be greeted by name and offered an upgraded room at no additional cost. 

Plus, whether you are traveling on business or vacation, I will be monitoring your trip to ensure that everything is going to plan. If you are hit with a flight cancelation or other unanticipated bumps, I am available to smooth the way and can leverage the clout of Protravel to maximize your budget and provided with priority VIP treatment.  

No matter what your travel needs, you can rest assured, I plan each trip as though it were my own, seeking out the best deals and looking for the hotels, restaurants, and activities that best suit your needs and wishes.

Amazing Business Partner in Travel

Reviewed By Viv - New York, NY | Traveled to San Francisco ~ California ~ USA
Aanchal is wonderful to work with, a virtual outsource arm of our firm. She always aiming to provide the best service, garnering the best rates, and make travel seamless for her clients. We chose to work with her at my new firm after nearly a decade of working with her at my prior firm. In the business environment, Aanchal is a person that we can trust. She not only helps arrange our travel, but puts in the effort to help us find the best solution at attractive rates. She also works incredibly hard to ensure that we travel for business, it is an extension of home. Aanchal is invaluable as she provides a solution to travel emergencies (and she does it in the most welcoming, warm, and energetic way).

Best trip ever

Reviewed By Shri - San Diego,CA | Traveled to Florence ~ Italy ~ Europe
I want to thank you for arranging our wonderful European trip to Florence, Sienna, Athens and Santorini. This was the best trip we have ever had. I don't have enough words to say thank you for arranging our unforgettable vacation. Some highlights were the arrangement of the chauffeured private car from Florence to Siena which was seamless and luxurious. Our bucket list on this trip was to see the Palio races. Your expert advice and ability to get VIP tickets for us showcased your ability to get access to exclusive events. Your hotel recommendations on this trip were on point in regards to location, rooms with a view and 5-Star service. We will always cherish the Tuscan sunsets, great vino and delicious food thanks to you. Your thoughtful and detail planning made our trip memorable. We are looking forward to working with you for our next adventure.

She is Amazing!

Reviewed By Always traveling - New York, NY | Traveled to Europe
We have worked with Aanchal for over ten years. She is a consummate professional, knows what we want, and helps guide us through the best, and sometimes the most challenging, times. She has provided services for our entire family and I have referred her to my friends (who also adore her). She has helped us travel across the world - flawlessly and intelligently.
