Travel Planning Services


Thank you for showing an interest in Black Cats Travel. I want to let you know how our Planning Services work.

    1. I will ask for a Questionnaire Form to be filled out so I can gather information on the type of trip you are interested in.
    2. I will follow up with a Vacation Planning Session. This is where I can get to know you a bit more and see if I will be able to provide you the professional travel planning services and knowledge you deserve. I will ask you more questions to gather details on your interests, desires, and wants. This can be done over the phone or through email. I prefer an over the phone conversation, but I understand everyone has busy lives and it might be easier to have the vacation planning session by email where you can answer all my questions I may have to help in planning the best vacation possible custom to you.
    3. If you feel that I would be of great assistance to you for planning your vacation I will ask for the Planning Service Form to be signed so you understand what to expect from Black Cats Travel Planning Services and I will ask for the Planning Fee. Then we are off we go to planning the perfect Romantic Getaway, Family Vacation or Your Group Event!
    4. Depending on the type of trip you are interested in you will receive 2 or 3 quotes that meet the type of vacation you are looking for. After choosing one of the quote options Black Cats Travel has provided to you, I will make adjustments “tweaks” to make sure your travel itinerary meets exactly what your interests, desires, and wants are on your vacation.

My promise to you:

All vacations arranged through Black Cats Travel come with peace of mind. I am an experienced travel professional dedicated to the creation of custom-planned vacations for travelers seeking individual attention and superior customer service. I put a great deal of time and effort into every vacation that is created for my clients. I research all the details of your vacation to meet your specific needs. I contact suppliers, coordinate transportation, and draft itineraries. Your personalized itinerary and detailed travel documents will give you as smooth and seamless a vacation as possible. Since I invest so much time and energy into planning each and everyone’s custom vacation, I require a Planning Service Fee. Each vacation planned is different and some require more research and time than others to provide you the best vacation options custom to you. Please review the different vacation options and Planning Service Fees.

What People Are Saying:

“Laura was VERY helpful in creating a honeymoon that was perfect for us. With all of the wedding planning going on this year we would not have been able to organize all of the transportation, hotels, and tours for this trip without her. Many aspects of our trip were pre-planned, and we would not have known how to set everything up on our own. Laura helped set up accommodations within our price-range and our comfort level. For example, having someone set up to pick us up from the airport in Venice and bring us to our hotel by water taxi made getting there so much easier. We were also comfortable knowing that we would be staying in nice hotels and dealing with trustworthy companies, without having to do a lot of research on each individual aspect.We would definitely recommend using Laura to other couples. The time and stress having a travel agent saved us made our honeymoon so much better than it could have been. Having an itinerary and pre-paid vouchers is so much better than figuring it all out as you go along.”
