My Background

I have been with Universal Travel since 1985.  After completing training with the Cruise Line International Association which required product knowledge, I became an Accredited Cruise Counselor. I enjoy cruising and have experienced three different cruise lines on my 7 cruises.  I am also a Certified Travel Associate and a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge.  I enjoy planning cruises, family trips to Disney, honeymoons and Alaskan cruise-tours.  I look forward to helping you plan your perfect getaway.

Laurie was recommended to me by someone else and after our first visit, I could tell that she would take care if everything. All I had to do was call to make the payments and she did the rest. I was able to pick up my tickets long before it was time for the trip. She went over everything with me so I knew exactly what to. I had no issues at all. She was great. My next vacation will be booked through Laurie.

Laurie has planned many trips for us including cruises.  Our last trip was to the Napa Valley in California.  Everything went smooth and just as planned.  We always look to Laurie to plan our vacations and would not think of calling anyone else.

Ms. Laurie Taylor of Universal Travel in Beaumont, Texas, recently aided my wife and me in planning a trip to Europe for three weeks, including two weeks of driving and a week on a river cruise boat.  She was as helpful as we could have wished, was available to help us whenever we asked, answered all of our many inquiries expeditiously and efficiently, and accomplished all of this graciously and cheerfully.  I recommend her to anyone who has plans to travel.  She will make the process of planning and execution of a trip easy and enjoyable.

Laurie Taylor has saved me time, money and stress! She listens and in turned thoroughly fulfills everything you ask for and more! I have utilized her services many times now and each time she has made my trip along with my family's run perfect and smooth without any problems. My obsession with details usually causes much stress for myself and whoever is traveling with me; however, Laurie has allowed that self-characteristic diminish! I trust her for every need when it comes to traveling and have allowed her to schedule reservations, hotels, etc. without an opinion myself. Never disappointed!! I will use her for all my travels, my family travels and recommend her to everyone I know (as I already have for my niece's honeymoon, my son's honeymoon and more)!

Laurie planned the perfect trip for the honeymoon. We planned nothing and trusted her entirely! From semi-private inland tours to catamaran sunset tours! She left nothing undone! It was perfect and we will ALWAYS call Laurie for any of our trips.

Curising with Universal

By: Old Married Couple


Reviewed on: 02 Nov 2015

We have used Universal now for years but will mention just the Alaskan Cruise and the Boston to Nova Scotia cruise just taken. In working with Laurie even though my wife and I are Crown and Anchor members, it is far easier making all the arrangements thru her rather than the cruise line itself. The air travel, cabin selection, and after cruise extras are so much more personal than dealing with the cruise line direct. On this last cruise, we talked with couples who did all their own travel and cruise arrangements and they not only had to hassle with the details but even lost out on some benefits or possible discounts they would have gotten had they allowed a qualified travel consultant work with and for them. Laurie's follow-up and monitoring of the process makes it all a pleasure working with Universal Travel. Having let a professional do it makes it truly a trip to remember not for the bad things but for just the fun and good things. Thanks!!!!!

The Alaskan trip that you arranged for my son and his wife could not have been a happier one ! They are back home but are still "over the moon" about their great adventure. They loved the ship, the cabin, the Pinnacle Restaurant, the helicopter flight, the glaciers, the dog sledding, Denali Park and everything they did and saw. It has been years since I have heard such enthusiasm, and they are like two little kids in their joy and delight. We appreciate everything you did, Laurie, to make it so wonderful for them, and we all thank you for it! You are one super travel agent!

I've used Laurie for 2 or 3 trips thus far, and I'm never disappointed! Her hotel and resort recommendations are always stellar, and we've always been well taken care of. Laurie is the only travel agent I will use for our vacation needs.

Universal Travel was a great help in planning our Disney World vacation. They notified us as soon as they found any deals that would help us book the resort we wanted for the best price. When airfare was high, they checked everyday to alert us to any price drops. We had a fantastic vacation and I will use Universal Travel to book our future trips!
