1. We work to provide you the best value for your travel dollar.  We inform you about all your choices, let you know about special promotions, and can advise on the quality of a particular product.

2. We offer expert guidance in understanding and deciphering the intricacies of the travel business so you can take full advantage of all of the options available.

3. We personalize our service to you.  We're not some computer program or an impersonal voice thousands of miles away.  We're right here and we value your travel experience.

Put simply, our job is to make sure you get where you need to go, at the best price, and in the most pleasant way possible. Your experience begins with ours.


Our team of travel agents has many years of combined travel planning experience. We have traveled the globe, visited numerous resorts, and sailed on many ships. We have helped hundreds of singles, couples, families and seniors plan their trips, and we are happy to say, most of them have returned as repeat customers and even recommended us to friends and family!


At The Travel Advantage, our travel agents are your personal guides to the world and offer the attention and expertise that you deserve. We provide a wealth of knowledge and experience achieved through ongoing destination and lifestyle training.  This allows us to deliver a flawless travel experience each and every time. We know the ins and outs of Europe, the best kept secrets of Disney World, and the best beachs to get away from it all. No matter where you want to go, we will get you there.


We are your advocate. We are committed to providing you with the best value and the best vacation for your budget. We’re here for you before, during and after your trip. Our job doesn’t end once your travel arrangements are made - we stick around until you return. We will advise you on what to pack, what to expect, what to see and what to skip.

Ardene was very helpful in working out the details of our trip to Disneyworld. When she was out of the office, we appreciated her making sure her base was covered by another agent as it was important to us to keep lines of communication open. By  No nickname with my review  from  Rock Valley, IA.

Robyn was super helpful and always willing to answer questions. She even checked in on us when she hadn't heard from us for awhile. She kept things moving along. :)

Amber was super helpful when we booked our trip. She had great resorts to have us choose from. It was very smooth, would definitely recommend her as an agent. Whenever we had any questions she was quick to answer us.

Jan does an excellent job taking care of our whole group for our vacation. (we usually have between 12-20 people) Jan is excellent at finding the best resort to fit both our budget and requested amenities. We will continue using her in the future!

Amy was very helpful and love working with her. My vacation was fabulous. This was my first week long cruise and it was a great experience. We had a lot of fun. Very relaxing because everything was taken care of before hand.
