My Background

As a child, my parents would take me to the airport to bid bon voyage to family members on their journey from New York to Spain and points beyond. Early on I fell in love with the idea and experience of travel. Only 12 when I took my first transatlantic flight, I knew I had found my passion.

I have over 25 years of travel industry, commercial aviation and customer service experience. My travels have taken me to Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, Guatemala, in Asia to China, Vietnam and Tokyo; New Zealand, South America and across the United States. When planning travel for my clients, I take great pride in details and execution. The networks that I have access to worldwide will greatly benefit your travel experience and create a lasting memory.

If you are looking for a short weekend getaway, a week on the beach, a cruise through Europe, South America or the Caribbean; a safari through Africa, a romantic honeymoon trip; a vacation for that special milestone; or that Round the World adventure that you've always dreamt of; I can tailor a trip, just for you.

Carol is an excellent Travel Consultant!

By: Dixie

Reviewed on: 04 Dec 2017

Excellent! Carol Fernandez helped us plan our Grand European Viking River Cruise trip in June 2017 and because of her personalized customer service, we ask her to plan our Iconic Mediterranean trip scheduled for November 2018. Because of her extensive travel history and her knowledge of the various cultures for the countries that we visited, we had an unforgettable experience! Carol provided us with meticulous details of our trip that included timely follow-up and recommendations for what we should see and do at each stop. She is courteous and a pleasure to work with. We have recommended Carol to our friends, family, and colleagues and will continue to do so. If you want a travel consultant that knows her business, contact Carol, you will not be disappointed.

Great travel agent

By: Alice and Scott Spencer

Reviewed on: 19 Sep 2018

Carol Fernandez was a big help to us when we planned our trip to the Amalfi Coast. Because of her efforts, we were able to save thousands of dollars on our airfare to Italy. She was conscientious. She monitored our air flight when our plane was delayed, and kept in contact with us. Carol Fernandez was knowledgeable about hotels and gave us good tips about securing tickets to different sites such as the Vatican and Colosseum in advance of our arrival. We would seek her help and advice for future trips. We have friends who also rely on her expertise and sing her praises.

Wonderful! Carol is the very best! We missed our flight due to a traffic accident and she arranged for us to change airlines and airports at the last minute!! Our voyage was replete with numerous amenities that she had arranged for us onboard and at The Milestone Hotel in London as well. Every detail was carefully planned and implemented thanks to Carol!

Carol is the consummate professional, knowledgeable about tours, airline travel and personalizing experiences. She goes above and beyond in providing advice and interceding when difficulties arise during a trip, such as the sudden illness of clients and revising travel plans, as a result.

Carol is a gem!

By: Karol

Reviewed on: 19 Oct 2019

Carol is fantastic to work with! This was the second trip she has helped me with, and she has done so much to make my trip everything I want it to be and more. She has answered any questions I have and has anticipated ones I haven't thought of. She helped me find the least expensive and most accommodating airfares. I will definitely avail myself of her services in the future.

It is always a pleasure working with Carol because it isn't "work"--it is truly like two friends chatting on the phone about interesting places around the world. Carol is knowledgeable with a variety of resources and an aim to organize the trip so that it meets or exceeds my wishes every time.

Carol Fernandez, Advisor Extraordinary

By: Charlie

Reviewed on: 07 Jan 2020

I cannot recommend Carol highly enough, she goes above and beyond. From initial contact to arrival at destination, she maintains remarkable monitoring care and help, which is particularly helpful with international travel. We travelled through Europe and Asia, without a hitch, and she even helped us fix last minute train cancellations caused by striking workers. Her background knowledge is also a great asset. If you want to make your travel special, ask for Carol’s help.
