My Background

Growing up, my idea of travel was a weekend at an in-state hotel and waterpark. Now, after visiting many states, Caribbean Islands, and Europe, it's easy to see my idea of travel has changed. These experiences help me as I help others. Whether it’s reserving a private island, arranging the perfect destination wedding, or spending the weekend in the mountains or at the beach, I have the experience to make it happen and make it a special memory. As a certified scuba diver, I can recommend top dive spots and operators. Through continued education, I have gained inside information from many Cruise Lines, Hotels, Tour Operators and Destination specialist programs. I have also received the CTA and DS designations and for the past 7 years, I have been designated as one of Travel and Leisure’s top travel agents.  I am thankful for the opportunities I have had to travel and experience the world. And, I love assisting others in creating the same kind of experiences and memories.

We had an absolutely AMAZING time on our Honeymoon at Zoetry. We loved Mexico, and will go back one day! Margie was awesome to work with, she made sure that she answered any questions we had, even some after the trip! We have already recommended her to our friends. Thanks Margie for planning our perfect Honeymoon!!

She was awesome! I had lots of questions and she answered all of them. We changed our plans and decided to upgrade our room and she made that happen. She was very accommodating. Highly recommend.

Margie has been excellent to work with. She has assisted us with our trip, given recommendations and been very friendly and helpful. We did not know what we were doing when booking the trip. She has guided us and followed up with us for all reservations and payments. Every time we called for a suggestion, recommendation or possible problem, Margie has been in contact with us, either over the phone or email within 24 hours. I know she is on top of everything and very knowledgeable in her line of work. I will keep her name and email handy for future trips as well as recommend her to others

How to make planning a trip Easy!

The easiest way to plan a trip is to.... let someone else do it for you!! Margie was professional and made our trip planning stress free. To flight options, transport from and to the airport, and advice about our destinations Margie handled it all. We will use Andavo and Margie for all future travels. Thank you so very much!

My dad suggested her to me. He has used her in the past and said she was great! She was extremely helpful and set up everything for us. We didn’t know what we were doing when it came to planning a trip. Extremely grateful to her and would definitely suggest her when helping plan a trip!!

Made it Happen

By: Ya Mon!

Reviewed on: 06 Dec 2018

Margie did all of the work for us - investigated airports, flights, dates, resorts that would work best with kids, which ones not to consider, rooms, views, packages. Even coordinated our trip with another family joining us from the opposite coast. And probably saved us a few bucks in addition to the time! Would recommend!!

Margie Hand is the best!

We LOVE Margie Hand! I have worked with her for a few years, by far the best travel advisor ever (and we travel extensively). Margie returns emails and phone calls very quickly and has great patience with me (a need given my high degree of involvement with the planning and many changes along the way). I highly recommend her.

Never use anyone else

Margie is absolutely outstanding. We've used her many many times and always received great treatment. She seems able to accomplish anything we want, even with last minute changes. She never disappoints. She's the reason why folks should always use an agent instead of trying to do it themselves. YEA MARGIE!!!
