My Background

Laura Cole is the youngest advisor at Court Travel, but is well-traveled beyond her years. With a degree from UNC Charlotte in International Business and Management, her education and experiences make her the perfect advisor in crafting custom itineraries for her clients.

No stranger to travel, she's spent weeks in Peru where she survived the treacherous Pan-American Highway journey through the Andes Mountains and served as a mission-optometrist . She's traveled throughout Germany; fully immersing herself in the German culture and has enjoyed a Rhine River cruise. She studied abroad in Italy, where she lived in a small Tuscan town. During her free time there she traveled throughout the beautiful Italian countryside, becoming an expert in public transport and negotiating international airports. Laura understands what can make her client's travels smooth and carefree. She's journeyed east to India and not only took on the role of a tourist, but also served as a social work student in a Delhi community. Laura has traveled to Costa Rica where she lived with locals and experienced some of the best private beaches of the country. She recently participated in a Virtuoso FAM Study Trip to South Africa where she learned the "Best of the Best" experiences in JoBurg, Cape Town, and Kruger!

Laura has an undeniable passion for luxury travel within remote destinations and loves sharing that with everyone! Her capability to listen and customize an itinerary to the most specific requests is above par.

Besides traveling, Laura practices pottery in her historic hometown, enjoys other crafts and shopping, and loves spending time with her beloved Pomchi, Pup.

London/Ireland Trip

By: Olivia

Reviewed on: 17 Jun 2017

Laura was phenomenal throughout the duration of both the planning process and while we were actually on the trip. Our trip consisted of 10 days in Ireland/England. Laura met the trip desires of two separate couples (with different agendas), our budgets, and exceeded all expectations. She booked an in person tour at Warner Brothers Studios for the Harry Potter Tour; routed a main site tour; rented our car in Ireland affordably, booked extremely safe hotels; and was available 24/7 while on the trip. Her dedication and professionalism were evident in how smoothly our trip went. Laura was able to make the entire experience of traveling to another country as stress free as possible while ensuring we were able to see and do everything we wanted to do. She took the additional time to walk through every day with us over dinner. I can't praise or thank her enough for her efforts because it was one of the best experiences of my entire life! I'll be back 2018 for Greece with Laura.

It was a pleasure working with Laura Cole. She is very knowledgeable and very helpful. She responded in a timely manner with answers to any questions we had. She stayed within our budget and gave great advice. She was very flexible with times and places to meet for our meeting before we left. This was the first trip we planned over seas and we had a lot of questions and she was able to answer all of them and if she didn't know them right off hand then she would find out and let us know quickly. She was very honest and she made our experience wonderful. We will definitely continue planning our vacations with Laura Cole and highly recommend others doing so as well!! She is awesome!!

Laura listened to our goals--even as we changed them a time or two (or three!) throughout the process--and put together a great itinerary for us. We were always in communication, and I could count on her to respond in a timely fashion. I would recommend using her.

Montego Bay

By: TRs

Reviewed on: 04 Oct 2017

Working with Laura was great. She was very patient and answered every single question we had about the trip. It was obvious that she knew what she was doing. Her careful planning of our trip to Montego Bay far exceeded our expectations. Due to her expertise, we were able to experience both the rich cultural and historical aspects of Jamaica. All of our travel arrangements were made ahead of time, which definitely helped us travel from the airport, to the resort, and to our excursions with peace of mind. Laura worked to help accommodate all of our requests, even those that came at the last minute. Our trip to Montego Bay was very enjoyable and the fond memories will last us a lifetime. We will not hesitate to work with her again for our next trip!

I had never taken a complex trip like this nor used a travel agency so i was skeptical at first but i ended up being VERY impressed. Trip flowed seamlessly. 3 countries and multiple cities and we had absolutely no problems. Every new destination that we arrived at, i would be wondering will we see someone with our names on that sign. I was never disappointed. It was so easy and stress-free traveling like this. Excellent tour guides who catered to everything we needed including things that had nothing to do with our itinerary. They were attentive and eager to adjust anything last minute if we spontaneously found something we were interested in doing while there. If we needed any kind of personal items they would literally go get it on their own personal time after we were dropped off for the day and have it for us the next morning when picking us up again. Unbelievable service. And Laura was always available for contact every step of the way. I will never travel any other way again!

Laura went above and beyond to accommodate for us on this last minute booking. This was my first time traveling out of the country and I felt comfortable with the arrangements Laura made for us. I will definitely use her again and refer her services.
