My Background

I started with Platinum Travel in November 2012 as the newest member of our Luxury Travel Advisors team. I am originally from Newfoundland, Canada is a veteran in the travel industry with over 16 years experience as a Travel Advisor. My love of travel started at a very young age. Our annual family vacation consistently took me to different parts of Canada and the United States. The experiences from these trips instilled a desire to see and experience all of the world’s different cultures. Throughout my experience as a Travel Advisor, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to Europe, Cuba, Hawaii, Panama, Mexico and several islands in the Caribbean. My passions for travel have led me to several countries throughout Europe. I traveled to Italy and Spain with Norwegian Cruise Lines. I've had River Cruise Expeditions on the Rhine and the Danube. The experiences gained from personal travels have become a great asset in assisting clients on planning numerous memorable vacations. When planning for my clients, I always use the same attention to detail as I would for myself.

Glenda was very friendly and helpful when planning a trip to a location that I was not familiar with. She helped with hotel selection, airline reservations, and car rental. Our trip went very smoothly. The hotel was wonderful. Can't wait to plan another trip with Glenda.

well worth it. Hassle free experience from the beginning. Enjoyed some fun in the sun with my wife, brother and sister in law at the Iberostar resort Montego Bay Jamaica. We'd work with Glenda again for sure

Glenda, thanks for your good work. Great cruise. Having a bottle of wine in our room when we arrived was a good start for our cruise. Thank you very much.

Rhine River trip

By: Charlie

Reviewed on: 06 May 2015

Overall the trip was good and enjoyable. We had some concerns about security. Boarding passes were never checked when you came on the boat. Any body could have come on and left something explosive on the boat then leave. One other problem, you never had enough time to tour the cities on your own. You were given very little time to go out on your own. And they should never take you to Amsterdam when it is the King's Birthday. The tour through the canals was fine but with the parties going on you could not visit anything in the city. That was very disappointing. Never got to explore the city as we had hoped. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, it was a good trip but the airline schedule should never be set up where the connections are so close to the arrival time. Twice we were late leaving Amsterdam and Atlanta then almost missed our connections. I think we can say that we liked our cruise in France better than we did this one.

Can't say enough good things about our travel experience from beginning to end. Glenda was warm, knowledgeable and took great care of us in arranging our trip to Italy. Our experience with our Insight tour was fabulous.

We had a great trip using Tauck Tours. It was so nice having every detail handled by Tauck. The private audience at the Sistene Chapel was one of our highlights. Thanks platinum Travel And Glenda Carey for a perfect 40 year wedding anniversary vacation!

Beautiful Resort

By: Kim

Reviewed on: 29 Jun 2015

We used Vacation Express to book a trip to Mexico. I feel I got a great deal on the all-inclusive trip. Thanks Glenda! Good The Royalton Riviera Resort was beautiful and the Diamond Club upgrade was well worth the extra money. The restaurants were great and the facility was amazing with tons of amenities, top notch pools, plenty of beach front, 24 hour room service, brand name alcohol (included), work out facility, tennis courts, and they are in the process of building basketball courts.. In general, the service was good, but at times it took way too long to get items. We waited 1.5 hours for toilet paper and towels. We had three in our room (we took our daughter) but constantly had to ask for towels, each day they would only leave 2. Loved the resort!!! Bad The airline was not good. The seats were too close and small. I am only 5 ft 5 inches tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. The plane was delayed a good hour down. The service was ok but not great.

Sandpiper Bay, Club Med

By: Marti K

Reviewed on: 03 Dec 2015

Club Med Sandpaper Bay was a great family vacation spot for several reasons: cost included everything including rooms, food, wine, activities for all ages ( we were ages 9 mos. to 9 years of the kids and 36-76 adult ages). The rooms although at first looked like they needed updating were perfect set up for the 4 families. It helped that our week's weather was perfect 70s and we could do water sports all week. Thank you for recommending it. It was a great week and some of our kids are thinking of going there on their own. Marti

Good job Glenda.

Had a great trip. Amazing all the history and sites to see. The hotel room, especially showers in Florence were too small, difficult to shower, but all the wonderful things to see and do make up for any inconvenience. Really enjoyed the private tours. Knowledgeable guides really made the tours intriguing. Lots of walking so have good shoes and get in shape beforehand. Ready to go again.

customer service lacking

By: Don148

Reviewed on: 23 May 2016

Hawaii is beautiful. communicating with Diamond Head to confirm reservations was challenging. The wait time to speak with a rep was annoying. especially the repeated message while on wait. When someone finally answered it was as if they did not have time for the customer. "scheduled" pick up times varied from 10 minutes to 25 minutes with no communication. There was some fast driving to make up for delays. we were told that tippng was optional, however one of the drivers had a rather huge homemade sign urging tipping. Maui was great. We enjoyed the condo, all though better signage would be helpful in locating the condo, the flight home was awful. I wish we had paid better attention to the overnight flying. My wife ended up catching the flu we think it might have been on one of the flights. Glenda was very professional and her assistance made this a memorable and wonderful vacation.

A wonderful trip

Glenda did a wonderful job. I honestly didn't have to worry about a thing. I did have to make sure my passport was valid, but Glenda reminded me to check on it several times. She managed our resort payments over time, made our airline reservations, and arranged transportation to the resort from the airport. Her willingness to be of service to us made our trip worry free. She is a true professional.

We booked our two week trip out West a year ago. We just completed it a few days ago and it was fabulous! When we contacted Platinum Travel Glenda Carey answered all our questions and made recommendations based on what we wanted to do and see. She set up our round trip flights to Las Vegas along with all tour arrangements. She was patient and very knowledgeable taking care of all the details. Prior to leaving she provided contact numbers for her and the travel agency just in case we encountered any problems during out trip. She did a great job and we will certainly contact her again for our future travel needs.

Easy Trip planning

Glenda did a great job planning all aspects of our European vacation, especially suggesting the bus tour, which I didn't think I wanted to do. So thankful I took her advice!! Our Globus Bus tour was fantastic, allowing us to see so much of England, Scotland, and Ireland! I felt like I barely had to lift a finger while she booked our flights, tour, extra nights in London, and even helped my father with his last minute cancellation. She went above and beyond to make sure our vacation was a spectacular experience.
