At the last travel agent conference that I attended; a representative of the South Point Hotel Casino was there to tell us all that this hotel and casino had to offer. My interest was greatly peaked as I have an ownership at the Tahiti Village and the South Point is not far from there. For […]
I am very fortunate as I get to vacation three times every year. Usually anyways. These vacations have nothing to do with the fact that I am a travel agent and these are not “free” vacations. I book these trips as a client of Bonnie’s Travel and find the best deals that I can. What […]
I’ve recently researched and booked a new client on their first trip to Las Vegas. Every client has their own lists of wants and desires and it is up to me, their travel agent, to tailor fit an itinerary the fits them to a tee.
Las Vegas, for me, is one of the most fun destinations I know. My first visit was for my husband’s 40th birthday. We’d booked a great room at Treasure Island and my husband’s family from Arizona joined us as a surprise to him.

The right kind of travel insurance has become an integral part of a smart traveler’s itinerary. It takes care of everything; be it your tickets, your luggage or your health. It leaves nothing to chance.
So, you’re planning a trip and want it to all fall into place perfectly, right? So, what are your options you might ask? On the one hand, you can easily book a trip through one of the many OTA’s (Online Travel Agency) like Orbitz or Travelocity. Or you can go the “Old School” route and […]
Many an article has been written about why you’d use a travel agent.

My annual vacation of 2013 was spent at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. I chose this resort because I had clients going there for a wedding in May the following year. As their travel agent, I thought it best to check the place out so that I would be qualified to answer any questions that […]
