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!

By: Chris

Reviewed on: 13 Dec 2017

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!

Absolutely phenomenal! She's hands down one of the most professional, yet relatable agents I've ever worked with! She has planned two trips for me and we're working another for the fall! She was able to book Iceland for my group and stay within budget while make sure we saw/accomplished what we wanted to! I recommend her to all of my colleagues, friends, and family members!

When i decided to travel abroad, Court Travel came highly recommended by several friends of mine. When I stepped into the office for the first time, I ended up working with Laura for my first trip to Hawaii. Since I knew nothing about the island I was really leaning on her to make this experience a wonderful journey for me, my son and daughter. Laura did not disappoint, it was an adventure of a life time!! Since that time, Court Travel and Laura have won me over, their service was so amazing that I ended booking two more trips with her. One to Italy and the next to London and in each instance Laura outdid herself from the previous trip. Everything from excursions, to hotels and all the little nuances that come with preparing for these types of trips was discussed with me and effortlessly put into place. It was really the first time, that I could Just go on vacation and not worry about anything. I haven’t decided where I am going next, but Laura will be a part of that as well!!

France and Italy Adventure

Laura was a pleasure to work with and she delivered high quality results ensuring that our 19 day adventure went off without a hitch. Laura has a vast knowledge of France and Italy which guided us to the right places, hotels, restaurants and points of interest. Attention to detail was singularly outstanding and evidenced by numerous flight, train, and private car connections occurring precisely at times and locations predetermined. When traveling, the last thing I want is worries about how I get from point A to point B, Laura's planning eliminated that potential issue from the equation. Could not have asked for a better coordinator and subject matter expert for our adventure.....and all done with a most pleasant disposition!! Highly recommend Laura Cole for all your travel planning and coordination. We will definitely use Court Travel and Laura for our next travel adventure. Thank you Laura!!!!

Laura Cole is absolutely PHENOMENAL! I recommend her to anyone I ever hear that is traveling, especially out of the country! She is honest, personable and always builds your dream vacation exactly how you imagine. This was my third trip with Laura and as always, everything went seamlessly smooth. While on our trip, my boyfriend proposed to me in Paris! Laura was able to help with transporting the ring, coordinating the location/timing, and she even had wine sent to us from our hotel! She even made dinner reservations for us afterwards! Laura always adds a personal touch with her notes waiting for your arrivals! Laura had personally been to the countries we were visiting and was able to give us insights to the best places to eat and visit to. Laura takes all of the hard work out of planning a trip because she plans everything down to the detail and all we have to worry about is making it to our destinations. She's the best travel agent and we'd never travel with anyone else!
