    Charlene Calwell, The Travel Agent Next Door Professional Travel Services Fees

    I TRULY VALUE MY CLIENTS - Thank you for contacting me to help you plan and book your important trip itinerary and ensure you are “Travel Ready”, with a stress-free and seamless vacation. If anything has come out post COVID travel, the role of a Travel Agent is so important now more than ever before. Navigating the world can be overwhelming enough, and adding in the continuation of changing travel requirements, you are certain to want a travel professional on your side. 
    I am passionate and knowledgeable about the travel industry, I continue to keep up to date with learning through my valuable travel partners, and I offer exceptional customer service to my valued clients so you can feel confident all the details of your trip will be looked after. 
    To ensure a commitment from potential clients, and to cover my planning time prior to getting started, I will require you to complete my Professional Travel Services Agreement which includes my upfront Professional Planning Fee. The amount of the fee depends on the complexity of your trip itinerary and how many people are traveling with you. We will discuss this during my complimentary, no-obligation "Discovery Call" along with your travel plans where I will determine the cost of my fee based on your travel needs. As a follow-up to our call, I will send you via email my agreement for your review and authorization signature should you wish to proceed and hire me as your Travel Professional.
    FEES are charged BEFORE any advice or planning begins and are non-refundable and are in addition to any supplier costs or penalties as per their terms and conditions. *Please note - An electronic client authorization form must be signed prior to booking your trip agreeing to all terms and conditions.

    Let’s get to know you better and the details of your trip so I may make the best recommendations to you.
