My Background

I was a teenager when our family took its first real vacation – a charter to Las Vegas, Honolulu and San Francisco.  A tour director accompanied our group and I thought , “A job involving travel, people skills, and problem solving – that’s for me!”  I traveled cross-country several times during college, and upon graduation began a year-long solo adventure to Europe and North Africa.

I have been in the travel industry for 36 years now and my enthusiasm for making travelers’ dreams come true remains undiminished while my ability to make each client’s trip a satisfying one has expanded exponentially.  I no longer accompany tours to places such as Copenhagen, Ireland, Switzerland or Kenya.  Instead I work closely with travelers to turn their dreams into reality.

I look forward to helping you create your next amazing adventure!

Jane has been helping our family plan trips for over 15 years. We are always completely satisfied and have a seamless experience. Her attention to details helps to make our travels unique and stress free. She always tries to arrange for us to experience the atmosphere and "flavor" of whatever country we are exploring. We are always happy to refer our friends and family to Jane for assistance in planning their trips.

Jane is great. I don't think I have taken a trip in years without her help. I met Jane when she did trips for our bar association years ago which were the best ones we had. She is thoughtful and caring and jumps through the hoops so we don't have to. She knows details and gives advice to make the trip better.Bill

Jane has been our agent for many years and she never fails to amaze us with the properties she picks and the itineraries she suggests. Everything goes smoothly and she is attentive to every detail....that leaves little for us to do but enjoy! I can't thank her enough for the special memories she has created for us! The properties she finds are unique and memorable. Service is always top notch.

Glowing Recommendation!!

By: Toby


Reviewed on: 16 Sep 2014

I had to write this glowing recommendation for all fellow travelers and the Virtuoso community to highly recommend Avenue 2 Travel. I have worked with Jane Edwards two times now and each experience has been exceptional. My latest trip was to the Ritz Carlton San Francisco and what a fantastic time I had. Jane offered professional advice and made sure my trip was one I would long remember. All of my special requests were taken care of immediately prior to leaving on my trip and all was fantastic once I arrived. Jane provides superior service as a travel specialist and I'm already thinking of my next trip!!

A fabulous trip to Paris

By: Kathy


Reviewed on: 27 Oct 2014

Jane Edwards is a true professional in the travel business. She gets to know you and what you are looking for and then delivers EXACTLY that. I have booked two very special trips abroad through Jane and both times they were amazing. Every detail from the tours to the hotels were first class and met all our expectations. I would never consider a trip without using Jane and highly recommend her for anyone looking for that special vacation. The Esprit Saint Germain was a wonderful experience. From the moment you enter through the front door you are made to feel invited and welcome. The staff is exceptional. No question or issue is too big or small for them to help you with. Just delightful! The hotel itself is warm and inviting. Everything from the breakfast to relaxing with wine in the evening adds to atmosphere. The location is on the left bank and a comfortable walk to many of the sites you will want to see in Paris. On a scale of 1-10 my husband and I would give them a 12!

The trip planned by Jane was great. The only problem was that it would have been better if we could have had an earlier flight back home. Jane did an outstanding job of working with us and meeting our needs. We could not have asked for a better travel agent.

The trip went better than anyone could have imagined. We credit the work that you accomplished for such things as the two specialized dinners which were wonderful, the first seating dinner and a host of other things that went so well. Our other two accompaning couples were thrilled with all the things that happen on a cruise ship. They tried to do eveything and participated more than Sharon and I could ever have imagined. Holland America is a first class cruise line. The Noordam is one of the most beautiful ships we've ever experienced. It is large and well laid out. It was an enjoyable cruise in every way. Yes, there always are some little things that did not go right. There was a"banging noise" in our stateroom for some nights and HAL couldn't figure out what was wrong. But they gave us another sleeping room and eventually the noise stopped. One of our coleagues bought a soda beverage plan but could not use it on their private island. Did not make sense. But the problem was minor.

Jane Edwards gave me excellent recommendations and advice for our Eastern European land trip in May. She listened and understood exactly how to fit our needs into a wonderful group tour with Insight Vacations.She offered a plethora of advice on hotels, sights and duration of travel. Her recommendation to stay an extra 2 nights in Prague at the Intercontinental was fabulous. Jane Is a very perspicacious, experienced travel agent who works so diligently and meticulously to please her clients. All of her advice and suggestions were exactly on target. Although I have not been on a land vacation in many years I felt confident going to Eastern Europe with Jane's guidance. Whenever I ask for her assistance she responds with alacrity and provides invaluable advice. I have recommended her to numerous friends and all are so pleased with her expertise.

Lovely hotel, but value not there for the $

By: sheree


Reviewed on: 07 Jun 2015

The hotel is very well located and well appointed. The staff is very courteous. The room is well appointed. The breakfast buffet is extensive and delicious. There seems to be some communications problems between staff members. For example, we would leave requests with the concierge, and sometimes it would be passed along to a colleague. Several times, the details of the messages were lost between staff members. I did complain- the supervisor was very attentive to the situation, but it happened 5 different times. The spa seemed to have the same communication issues. For example, there were no combs or brushes to use after I showered. There were hair products and blow dryers. I requested a brush and the staff member said there were none as they had had a problem with their brushes-the front desk knew of the issue and offered to call housekeeping for a brush. This hotel is VERY $$$$$, and it seems these details would be something that would not be an issue for the price we paid.

Jane has always come through with great trips and outstanding personal service. This cruise, with the exception of poor weather on our first two days, was an exceptional voyage. The QM2 is looking a bit tired and I understand she will be getting a face-lift when she returns to Southampton. BUT... the staff, service and food were top notch. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us. It was by far the best cruise we have had.
