I have so many wonderful things to say that I don't even know where to begin. Honeymoon Islands was referred to us by a friend and travel enthusiast, when I expressed that I wanted to plan a trip and due to the fact that it was a multi-destination trip, I really wanted advice/suggestions on how to approach and plan the trip. I reached out to Teresa, who owns this travel service company, and immediately I knew that I was going to love working with her. She LISTENED to me speak, asked my vision for the trip, and gave me true and honest feedback and in areas where I was cloudy, she was able to clear the fog and help direct to me exactly what I was looking for.
I have to say that there are so many websites out there that allow us as travelers to pretty much book our own trips as we see fit and for the last 8 years, we have done just that. I can say that I will never plan another vacation without going through Teresa.
Within minutes of speaking to her on the phone, we had a tentative itinerary emailed to us, pricing and a selection of top-notch accommodations to choose from. When we needed to make changes, she made changes. When we were ready to move forward, she took care of all the payments and once all bookings were made, we received a professional, clean, ready-to-print personalized e-copy of our travel plans.
We traveled to Turks and Caicos and have priced this trip on our own before. Teresa actually managed to price this $2,000 less than we did. Now for our "story"... Enter our little emergency here. We were scheduled to fly out on a Sunday. Saturday afternoon, I discovered my passport was expired. Now enter pure panic. It's a Saturday...what can I do on a weekend? I emailed Teresa, and called her. She called me back within minutes (did I mention this was a Saturday?!). She could not do anything about my passport situation...she's not passport agent. But within a few days, she talked to the highest of the high decision makers at the resort we were planning to stay at for a week, convinced them to waive the 100% cancelation fee (in other words we did NOT lose our money), got us a reservation in the same room category just two weeks later, called the passport office with me on 3-way and ensured I got a reservation at our local passport agency so I could take care of an expedited renewal, re-arranged all our airfare, and 2 weeks later were sipping pina coladas on the powder-soft white sand beaches while electric teal-blue waters would kiss our toes. There is NO WAY that this resort would have allowed us to come back another week without any sort of penalty, and truthfully we would have lost all of our money had we booked independently rather than through Teresa. She's been in the business over 30 years and her reputation allowed for us to take our much needed trip.
We have another trip booked through Teresa for next year, and a few mini trips we are planning in between. She knows just about anything about any destination you can imagine, has suggestions on where to stay, what to see, what to visit, and what to avoid. She takes time on each phone call, sends detailed and thorough emails, and is so quick and responsive. I can't say enough good things about Honeymoon Islands!
