Cruise and Family Vacations Specialist

I stumbled into the travel agency business in 1986 when a company that I ran in Oklahoma decided to form an in-house travel agency.  That was 31 years ago.

During those years, my experience has evolved from running airline tickets and finding hotels and cars, to being very involved in our family owned business here in Murray, Utah.  I have found that helping people 'make memories to last a lifetime" is the thing I love to do.

Our Agency has a lot of niches.  We found that destination weddings and honeymoons were an area that we wanted to pursue.  We also found that group travel involving both students and adults was a rewarding field.  Each of us has seemed to navigate to one of those niches and made the Agency very successful for over 30 years.

I have channeled my expertise into doing family vacations, couple vacations and cruises for just about anyone that wants to get on the water or who wants to visit a historical city or a tropical destination.  Cruises are my very favorite thing to do, and I have personally sailed more than fourteen times.  My new personal love has become River Cruising.   There is nothing like floating down a river in Europe with the scenery and villages on each side of you. 

One of my latest passions has become the world of traveling by rail.  Europe has exceptional rail systems, as does Canada and Alaska.  What a fun way to experience another area of the world in a new and unique way.

When an Agent has visited an area several times, or sailed on a ship to various destinations, that knowledge can be conveyed to the client.  We try to both travel ourselves and send our agents out to learn about specific areas of the world.

Working with couples or the heads of families making that dream vacation materialize into more than they ever imagined is also something that is very rewarding personally.  Over the years I have found that more and more people want to travel with their families and make memories rather than give material gifts that will be forgotten in a few months.  Having photos of family or friends on a beach in a sunny, warm destination, or standing in the historical section of a city that has only been seen in school and picture books, brings memories forever.

We make an effort to stay up on policies and procedures both of our suppliers and of the areas to which we send people.  Safety is important and helps to assure enjoyment and relaxation.

We are a small Agency.  We get to know our clients by voice, email, phone, and in person.  We have clients that we have had for many years that we have never seen.  Those personal relationships are what makes our Agency successful.

 

 

Keeping Up With The Times

In today's world, it is especially important to work with and Agent and and Agency that stays on top of the challenges with travel whether it be because of a Pandemic, changes in airline regulations, changes and re-bookings when necessary because of situations that are out of your control.  Sometimes it is difficult to be out in the travel world by yourself when things happen.  It is comforting to have someone that will help you navigate the process, go to bat on your behalf, and ease the worry and work through the logistics of whatever needs to be done to solve the problem.  

We at All Points Travel have the latest in information and resources to help with those things.  Another reason to always book with a travel agent.

The Best Travel Agent in the World!
Marj is hands down the best travel agent that ever walked this earth! She has handled at least 7 different trips for us ranging from cruises to lengthy and complicated stays in Hawaii. The trips to Hawaii have included coordinating hotel stays, car rentals, airfare between islands and also cruises around the island. There is no trip that she can't handle and she thinks of all the little things that make a vacation go smoothly. I feel so confident and secure in knowing that Marj is handling our vacations. I know that I am paying the lowest price possible, as she continues to check for sales even after a trip is booked. One one of our trips to Hawaii, Delta pulled out of our local airport. Marj changed our tickets to another nearby airport. Delta then wanted to change our seats on the second leg of our flight because the ones we had were now upgraded seats. Well, Marj took the bull by the horns for us and was able to secure the same seats for us. I can't recommend Marj enough!

Awesome travels!
Marj’s experience in the travel industry provides the client with a person who can provide total wrap around services from pre-planning suggestions to execution of the entire trip. If you are going to take a cruise she looks out for you in planning pre/post trip excursions in addition to ensuring that all components of your trip are addressed from transportation, flights, lodging etc. . No question is left unanswered. Marj has taken care of canceling two international trips and rebooking of replacement trips as well as other international travel arrangements for us.

Always the best experience!
Marj is hands down the best travel agent who ever lived. She has booked many trips for us over the years and they have always been hassle free. There is no detail, no matter how small, that she doesn’t attend to. Marj thinks of everything and is very willing to share suggestions. I imagine with some travel agents, once you are booke, they are essentially done. But not Marj. She will continue to check for sales and/or lower rates to save her clients money. Her vast knowledge of the travel industry puts us at ease!I like that she prepares packets with our itinerary, tickets, etc.that is easily accessible during travel. It can fit in a backpack or pocketbook. It’s just one of the little touches that puts her head and shoulders above the rest.

Variety is the spice of life
Marjorie gave excellent advise on the best time of year to travel, fantastic recommendations of great destinations and found the best air fair rates and best times to depart and arrive. She knows the customer and their needs. She has the experience and knowledge about the cruiselines and destinations. She will let you know the pros and cons.
