...former advertising-exec-turned-travel agent pro, ready to make your group travel dreams happen.
I like to say that, at Alpaca Your Bags Travel, our name is silly—but our service sure isn’t.
Because I know what happens when service is less than stellar.
(cue the panic-inducing disaster movie music).
I worked with a travel agent for the first time ever, thinking she would make things easier. I knew that we wanted the easy, breezy experience of an all inclusive destination wedding.
Instead, I just got a pile of frustration—she was slow to respond, insisted on mailing and faxing everything (instead of emailing … it’s not the ‘90’s anymore, lady!), and made our guests feel stupid when they reached out with questions.
But the biggest problem was that the whole process felt so cookie cutter. When she sent over our proposal, it was just so clear that she sent the same one to all her clients—nothing we discussed in our planning call together was reflected in the proposal!
She was planning one of the most important days of our lives … and she made me feel like another cog in the wheel.
Luckily, our big day still turned out to be a blast. I loved greeting all our guests with fire dancers, watching my dad race down the resort waterslide with my co-workers, and renting out a catamaran for the whole party.
I just wished I wasn’t so stressed out and sleep deprived leading up to it all (because a bride needs her beauty sleep, ya know?).
That’s exactly why I started Alpaca Your Bags Travel—to give groups an effortless travel experience, from start to finish.
Because group travel can get more complicated than Ikea furniture instructions really fast—talking contracts with the resort, coordinating travel with your guests, figuring out the best packages, flights, excursions, etc.
