"Ane was amazing from the start. She suggested a place to go for our spring break, and while theoretically we could have booked the hotel ourselves moving forward, her connections and responsiveness truly made the trip completely enjoyable and worry-free. We ran into a few questions that would have taken a lot of time away from our vacation if we had tried to sort them out ourselves. A simple message to Ane set our minds at ease so we could enjoy the vacation we had so been looking forward to. Furthermore, she was always so kind and didn’t make it seem like any question was too small. I would highly recommend Ane to anyone planning a trip.."

"AMAZING! I discovered Ane on Instagram and knew I needed help create the best 10 year anniversary trip. She was so thorough and patient with my crazy schedule, budget and requests. After sending us some options we landed on Rosewood Mayakoba Mexico. IT WAS A DREAM. I am still getting over my vacation blues. The food, the service and activities were 10/10. But the extra perks that Ane secured for us made it even more special. My husband and I have traveled the world together but haven't experienced this type of kindness and relaxation anywhere else. I highly recommend Ane for your next adventure."
"Thank you Ane for helping us design the trip of a lifetime. We had dreams of Indonesia but with covid hesitancy Ane helped us find a location with similar jungle vibes and crystal blue waters. The missing 4th wall concept of our room was a dream. We enjoyed every single second. Ane added care and consideration to every aspect of the trip. She connected us with the hotel concierge to arrange airport transfer, a private over water dinner, zip lining, hiking, a private sunset sail and so much more that made the experience so unique. She assisted us with travel insurance and took all the worry from my planning. After this experience, I honestly can’t imagine why anyone would plan a trip without an agent. We are small business owners and I never really considered the fact that I was handing big business websites a resort commission instead of an agent. I love supporting small business! I highly recommend Ane and we can’t wait to use her again for our next adventure."
"Ane Lowe organized a special trip for us (and our grandson) to Boston. (This was at the request of our grandson.) Ane found us a beautiful, high end, wonderful hotel in Boston (the Langham) which was centrally located to all the things we wanted to see and do. And, she arranged for us to have access to amenities at the hotel we would not have had access to otherwise (Club Langham). The club gave us a place to visit with food and games available between events. We loved it. Ane also arranged for us to have breakfast paid for - and the breakfasts at the Langham are really, really good. Our time (a week) in Boston was fabulous, the Langham great, and Ane made it all so easy! I trust Ane’s recommendations fully."
"Ane is the BEST OF THE BEST!!! She made planning our babymoon to Carmel so enjoyable and totally stress free, and her recommendations for hotels, restaurants and activities were absolutely lovely; She truly plans a trip that is perfect for YOU!"

Keep in mind..
The short answer is no, however my specialty and where I provide the most value is when booking 5 star hotels or focus on luxury trips/experiences. The budget when only booking a weekend stay at a 5 star hotel is very different than when planning a two week European vacation with luxury accommodations, transfers, guided tours/activities, etc. Before embarking on any travel planning for you I will have a conversation with you regarding the budget for the trip to make sure I’m the best fit for your needs and to understand expectations.
"Do you have trip minimums or require a certain budget for a trip?"
This could be you....
A Travel Advisor can help with the following:
Quickly help narrow down hotel and destination options specifically based on your wishes, saving you time, stress, and 100s of useless online reviews
Can get you the best pricing (even when comparing with online travel sites) and promos not available to all on the web
Can VIP you at no extra cost, so you get VIP perks worth hundreds of dollars that you wouldn’t get when booking the best available rate on your own
Can help you secure insider intel and tips for your destination
Can help organize all sightseeing & activities with trusted (and vetted) guides
provide access to unique activities or experiences that would be incredibly difficult or impossible to secure on one’s own
work as your advocate when dealing with flight and booking cancellations so you don’t have to sit on hold for hours
"In a world of 1000 online resources, what benefits does a Travel Advisor offer?"
"What is a Travel Advisor? Is that the same thing as a Travel Agent?"
Yes and no 🙂 Essentially I am a travel agent in the sense that I provide travel planning services (booking flights, hotels, guides, etc), but different from a “travel agent” because I take a consultative approach (rather than a transactional approach) to the trips that I plan. While I can book just flights or hotels, where I add the most value to my clients is when planning an entire trip, from the flights, to accommodations, transportation, restaurant recommendations, vetted guides and activities, etc–especially when focusing on high end travel. The agency I’m affiliated with has an extensive network of premiere travel partners globally, and I’m able to leverage those relationships to create experiences that would be difficult or time intensive to find on your own.
I love working with diverse clients, including couples, families, social groups, and more. I particularly enjoy collaborating with clients who appreciate the value of my services, respect my time and expertise, and understand that crafting an exceptional vacation requires patience, resources, and attention to detail.
While I prioritize value over cost, please note that my specialization lies in creating remarkable experiences rather than focusing on budget-friendly trips. However, I'll always strive to provide you with the best options based on the budget you provide. Where I truly excel is in arranging stays at luxurious 5-star hotels, designing intricate itineraries with multiple stops, organizing complex airline routes, incorporating expert guides and drivers, curating experiences in destinations unknown to you, and tailoring trips to cater to specific interests such as safaris or ancient ruins.
"What type of clients do you work with?"
Absolutely! When booking your stay at any Bonvoy property, I will make sure to include your Bonvoy number so you get points and so that your status comes through. Regardless, I have a personal contact at the hotels that I reach out to to flag your reservation and let them know about your upcoming stay. In addition to your status/benefits, I’m able to include additional value/benefits in the way of upgrades, complimentary breakfast, hotel credits, and more for hotels that participate in the STARS (The Ritz-Carlton, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, St Regis, The Luxury Collection, Bvlgari, Edition) or Luminous (W, JW Marriott, Autograph Collections, some Westins,) Programs.
"I have status with Marriott/Bonvoy. Is there any benefit in booking through you??"
"What’s the difference between working with you and AMEX Fine Hotels & Resorts?"
The main benefit is the personal relationship: working consistently with the same person who understands your needs and can anticipate your requests. I have direct contacts at the hotels, not just a generic 1-800 number, that I reach out to on behalf of my clients. The amenities offered are similar, including upgrades, credits, early check-in/late check-out, and complimentary breakfast. However, as a preferred partner, my clients receive priority over bookings made through other programs, such as AMEX Fine Hotels and Resorts. I also ensure to reconfirm your reservation before your arrival and advocate for VIP treatment on your behalf. Unlike self-booking, my clients are recognized as my guests upon arrival, not just based on the card used for booking.
"How are you paid? Is there a fee, commission?"
Like with most professional services (CPAs, Attorneys, Financial Advisors, Architects) the up-front planning fee covers my time, expertise, resources, and relationships to tailor the trip specifically to your tastes and budget.
Receiving a planning fee also lets me know that the client is serious about the trip they’re requesting, and it allows me to give them priority over other requests that have not yet been confirmed.
"Why do you charge a planning fee?"
"What is the cost when using a Travel Advisor?"
My pricing varies based on the complexity of your trip, including a travel planning fee and ticketing fees if I handle your airfare. Once we discuss your requirements, I'll assess your travel needs and present a detailed document outlining destinations, timelines, and budget. I believe in transparent pricing and delivering unbeatable value. As your consultant, I customize every aspect of the trip to your preferences. Before any bookings are made, all fees and prices will be discussed upfront for your approval. Even if you prefer to handle flight and hotel bookings independently using points or platforms like Airbnb and VRBO, I can still assist with developing the itinerary, arranging activities, transportation, sightseeing, and offering restaurant recommendations—all within the planning fee. Additionally, I often secure valuable benefits like complimentary breakfast, upgrades, credits, and even airport transfers for hotel bookings. Furthermore, I have access to exclusive promotions not available online, including free nights and special packages.
Absolutely. I am able to get my clients booked into accessible rooms and can notify staff of any special needs or requests, and can help hire people to take care of any needs while on the trip.
*Please note that depending on the complexity of the person's needs I may refer out to an accessible travel specialist.
"Can you help plan trips for people who require wheelchair accessibility/special needs?"
The trip planning fee is a discussed upfront and is based on the complexity of your trip. It is a flat fee that needs to be paid before building the itinerary and providing a proposal.
When it comes to payment, I prefer to directly apply your payment information (e.g., credit card) with the travel partner, instead of charging you and then sending payment on your behalf. While I strive to provide a breakdown of costs, please note that for packaged trips, some travel partners may not be able to offer a detailed breakdown due to contractual obligations with suppliers. For hotel-only bookings, most hotels require a credit card to guarantee the reservation and may request a deposit or prepayment for special promotional rates. For travel packages including transfers, accommodations, and guided activities, a deposit is typically needed upfront to secure the trip. The final balance is usually due 30-45 days before the trip begins.
"How does payment work? Is it a percentage of total amount spent on trip or is it a flat fee:"
"Do you work on trips of all kinds/lengths? group event??"
