My Background

I came to the United States from England, so in a sense, I've been traveling all my life!  For the past 44 years, I've enjoyed working with clients sending them around the world.  Of course, I enjoy selling trips to England and other parts of Europe but also enjoy selling cruises and special occasion trips.  My husband is from France and just became a United States citizen, so I also enjoy selling his home country.

I pride myself on attention to details for client's trips ensuring that there are no surprises for them.  

My professional certifications include CTA, Certified Travel Advisor and Destination Specialist from The Travel Institute.

I always to turn to Elaine for help.  She immediately gives my trip needs her full attention & is ready with answers I need for trip planning.  She even watched the airline website on a Saturday to ensure I got my desired seating.  Her attitude is always friendly, helpful & professional.  I recommend Elaine & Travel Masters to people I know because I'm confident they won't be disappointed! 

Trip to Mexico

Elaine did a great job booking our trip, and she was very helpful with some last minute details.  We traveled to Mexico as a group of eleven.  Two of those traveling with us were minors who were friends of my son, and Elaine was very helpful in getting documents printed that gave us permission to take them out of the country.  The resort we went to was a little bit of a disappointment, but I do not blame Elaine for this.  We just didn't like the location of the resort, they were not very helpful in getting our rooms close to ether, and the resort just wasn't as friendly as other resorts we have visited in Mexico.

From the very beginning,Elaine created a warm and helping professional manner. Answered questions and inquiries on a number of various trip sites. Once we settled on the Celebrity Alaska Land & Seas trip she guided us through the process and every detail needed.  Even a few of our "dumb" questions.From the start everything was taken care of and covered, no hiccups! It made the trip one of the very best we have ever taken and a salute goes to Elaine for professionally handling the details so we could fully enjoy the trip.Now we need to get with her to plan another trip! Thank you Elaine!!

Elaine and Travel Masters are a "Winning Team!" In the past 12 months Elaine has guided us on two wonderful trips. Alaska (land & sea) and Western Caribbean. Most recent was excellent. A bus of 57 to Houston, great port and easy to access and depart from. Planned cabin on deck 9 mid, it couldnt have been better. Balcony was great on Norwegian Jewel. Because it was a Valentines cruise, delicious chocolates arrived for my wife the first two days, wonderful. Excursions went well, sea time was great, food on board very good. We didnt eat in any specialty restaurants because of the food in main dining room. Fitness area was very good and lots of activity, classes all day. Entertainment was very good, especially the Russian acrobats and comedians. Every base was covered by Elaine and that made our experience all the more wonderful. Disembaring was timely and smooth and bus ride home a fine finish to the trip. We look forward to working with Elaine on our next trip!! You should too!!

Elaine Villette was such a big help to us in planning our 3-week trip to Ireland, Wales, and Scotland. All the air, ferry, and railroad trips turned out just as Elaine had planned. Her tips and hotel choices were absolutely perfect. Elaine knew we liked castles and pubs, and she got us near both in every town. She was always more than willing to answer any of our questions and help us with problems. We are so glad that we got to work with her!

When we planned our trip, she "filled in all the blanks" and made us aware of what we needed to know about the trip. We did, because of illness, have to cancel and Elaine gathered all necessary information for the insurance refund process.

Elaine, booked our Alaskan Cruise on the Princess Line and we were well pleased with the accommodations,but were not to impressed with the Cruise line, itself. We enjoyed the Carnival Cruise we took better as the meals were much better and the Crew was much friendlier,except for our Cabin Boy, he was great! Salty

I just booked my second cruise with Elaine, and feel very comfortable in her knowledge of the industry and her presentation of whatever needs I might have during my trip. I would not consider using anyone else for my vacation needs.

Very good.

Our trip to Australia and New Zealand was wonderful.  It had a very rocky start---I picked up my husband's old passport by mistake and didn't discover the mistake until we were in line to get our boarding tickets.  My daughter was able to find my passport and bring it to us.  I called Elaine immediately and she called Qantas and found us another flight later the same day and told us where to go and what to do.....everything worked out and we got on the plane without very much more fuss.  When we arrived in Sydney, our driver was waiting, our hotel room was very nice.  We picked up the rent car with no problems.  The rest of the trip in Australia we did on our own.  We flew from Sydney to Auchland and again picked up a rent car and everything was great.  We traveled between the islands on a ferry and everything went very smoothly.  Trip home was fine also.  Everything was booked exactly as we wanted....couldn't ask for anything better.
