You want an advisor who has YOUR best interests in mind

When we work with our clients to create an itinerary, we are not making our recommendations based on our ability to earn a commission. This is different than other travel agents who need to earn a profit on each booking. We are destination experts and charge a fee for what we do. We believe this helps us do a better job creating a custom travel agenda that is specific to you and your travel companions. We are able to look for the perfect lodging, restaurants, transportation and activities for each client based on their individual needs and interests. We recommend the very best travel solutions for you, not the best solutions based only upon a portfolio of commission-earning options for us. We find this puts us in the best position to create the very best travel itineraries for our clients.

You want a balanced itinerary

You don’t want your vacation to be stressful. You want balance in your schedule so you see as much as you are able, while traveling at a pace that allows you to truly soak it all in. When we first started traveling in Europe, we made the mistake of trying to fit so much into each day that we were’t able to really focus on and appreciate each unique place we visited. Now we know how to create a perfectly balanced itinerary so that you can see everything you’d like to see, while having time to soak it all in…after all, you don’t want to need a vacation from your vacation when you return home!

You want to see, hear, smell, taste, learn, and do

Perhaps you’d like to spend quality time gazing at Michelangelo’s David in the Accademia in Florence, Italy.  Listen to the voices of passionate food vendors in a market in Provence.. Taste the most buttery, flakey croissant fresh from a boulangerie in Paris. Experience mind blowing Rieslings on an escorted wine tour of the Mosel valley. Dine at a 3 Michelin Star restaurant in Copenhagen. Cruise on a fjord in Norway. Visit the Tower of London and learn about William the Conqueror and Henry VIII (and his six wives!). Breath in the fresh seaside air as you hike along the Cliffs of Moher. Enjoy a ruin bar crawl in Budapest. Go canyoning in the Azores. We can make it all happen…and so much more.

You don’t want to be crushed with information

We get it!  There is SO much information available to us these days.  We have the world at our fingertips but it can be completely overwhelming to sift through all your resources, and try to choose the very best locations, accommodations, restaurants, activities and transportation.  Information overload is real.  Let Euro Travel Coach sift through all the options and do the research for you.  Use our European travel planning services to create an itinerary that allows you to focus on those things that will be the most memorable for you and the people you are traveling with.

You want the process to be simple

When you use our European travel planning services, you receive an detailed itinerary for each day of travel including all the important contact information you need, which can be accessed via app (or printed prior to travel). You’ll have all of the details of your trip right at your fingertips.  We make the planning process simple: we ask you question about your travel style and your hopes and dreams for your trip, and then we take care of the rest. Then, while you are traveling, you can focus on making memories, rather than worrying about all the logistics. We check and double check all your reservations and plans to ensure that there are no hiccups during your time abroad.
