My Background

I started as a travel agent in my native Scotland over forty years ago prior to moving to Canada in 1980. Originally I specialised in corporate travel but have diversified to include holidays. I love the variety of the job as one minute I am arranging a business trip then later organising a cruise or exotic vacation to anywhere in the world. Most years I travel with a group of agents and check out a different destination or to a familiar one to update myself on what is offered. I would say that my "best experience" to date, was bonding with wildlife in the Galapagos.

I have dealt with Jenny Wilkinson for many years. As a result I knew that I could rely on her advice and the arrangements which she made for my trip to Italy and Malta. I was not disappointed. The trip went off without any hitch attributable to her. In fact it went off without a hitch. I enjoyed it and am grateful for her advice and competence.

Jenny has always responded to our requests promptly, cheerfully and efficiently. Caught in London during the ash cloud closure, Jenny got us on the first AC flight when skies opened! An injury just hours before a flight to Europe, necessitated crutches so Jenny determined the flight was not full, arranged seats so I could have my leg elevated all night and then wheel chairs through Calgary, Heathrow, deGaulle and our final destination. Jenny is wonderful!

International Flight Arrangements

Jenny has faultlessly arranged many international trips for me during approximately 20 years. Her outgoing personality makes every transaction a pleasure. She always presents choices, allowing me to balance cost and convenience, then implements the choices I select. Overall, her knowledge of alternatives has allowed me to more than offset her service costs with savings in fares that I might otherwise have paid.

Everything was great except that I would prefer an aisle seat that has a seat in front so that I can store my little backpack under the seat. On the way back from Paris, my seat was right behind the bulk head for the bathroom. Lots of leg room but a nuisance for the TV and the tray and to store things. The hotel in Paris was excellent, just across the street from the train station and across the street from the bus to the airport. We were able to buy bus tickets in the hotel.

We have booked our travel with Jenny Wilkinson for a few years now and she has always provided expert and effective service. Most recently, we had a very complex trip to Tanzania involving several family members, some flying on miles and some not. To make matters worse, I had to make a last minute change that added a US destination to my return. Jenny handled everything with impressive efficiency and at a very good price. I have always found her to be extremely knowledgeable, efficient and highly competent. I travel a lot and have worked with several travel agents in the past, some of whom were very good, but Jenny Wilkinson is certainly the best I have worked with to date.

On the E-Ticket receipt issued by Vision under Air-return date, Vision states, "1 FREE CHECKED BAG PERMITTED. 2ND BAG IS 20.00 PER DIRECTION. MAXIMUM WEIGHT PERMITTED IS 23 KG EACH" When we checked in at Auckland we had one 2nd bag which we were charged $200.00 dollars for. The attendant claimed Vision's description was confusing and inaccurate.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Four Points Sheraton in Calgary. Rooms were spacious and nicely laid out. Lovely soap and lotion! Complimentary water was a nice touch. The grandkids really enjoyed the pool and waterslide! Very close to Market Mall and our family events. Very nice breakfast buffet with good selection and excellent service. You might want to request a room facing away from Highway 1, somewhat noisy on weekdays. Overall a nice getaway!

To Whom It May Concern, Recently I have booked two trips with Jenny Wilkinson. Jenny is very knowledgeable about travel and destinations. Jenny booked our travel in a very efficient manner and even spent some out of office time assisting me. Jenny was professional, efficient and proficient. We purchased insurance on her advice and wisdom. We got a room with an ocean view even though we did not pay for that. Gran Bahia Principe Akumal. We were very close to pool and beach, perfect location. The flights with Air Transat were fine. The return flight even left 30 min. early. The resort was everything and more than we could have expected great room, great food, great amenities, beautifully landscaped grounds. Very well maintained property. Thank you very much for a perfect trip and reservation process.

Without Jenny's thorough organization of flights, car transports, hotels, train reservations, and all other details I threw at her during the planning process (up to a few days before departure!), our vacation wouldn't have been this special.

Jenny arranged the international flight portions of our trip to Oman, and the return from Delhi India. I would have been happy to leave the internal flights to her also, but could not as Vision Travel only deals only with international carriers. Happily, everything worked out as planned. We were very happy with the India based tour company (Panorama Tours) recommended by her for the Golden Triangle portion of our trip. I was surprised that Vision Travel would not support this segment of our trip and that we had to sign a waiver stating that Vision Travel was not responsible for any issues. However, thanks to Jenny, all worked out well. Laura Neame
