The Curated Buy

Travel is no longer just about the destination. Travel is now defined by how someone wants to experience a destination, be it for the food, culture, history, shopping, wellness or all of the above. At Royal Travel, we cater to the individual and curate experiences unique to them. Two travelers can go to the same place and have completely different trips.

We know our clients and anticipate their needs. It’s our job to stay one step ahead and deliver personalized ideas.

I wanted to let you know we had a fabulous trip! I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you for all of your time spent planning and securing the itinerary. The guides and tours were all great -- professional and knowledgeable.

I own my own company and we have taken a lot of trips with very, very high end folks and Royal Travel is as good as I have come across… whether it's a long weekend family trip to Disney or a month long trek across Europe, I’m beyond happy with the planning and execution these guys offer.

I have had many people over the years ask me, "Why do you use a travel agent, you can get the same rate direct from the resort?" Well, I have a definitive answer for those people -. I want them to know how amazing Royal Travel is. They work tirelessly and are there if something unexpected goes wrong. They have my business for life. I will recommend them to anyone and everyone I can.”

“Connecting with people from other cultures and destinations is what gets me revved,” says Kendra. “I’m energized when planning our clients’ trips. There’s so much to be learned about the world around us and it’s my favorite subject.”


A Legacy of Expertise

Marrying a rich company history with hard work, we research precisely what is asked for, and then elevate expectations. Why work with a Travel Advisor? We know what’s hot, what’s not, and everything in between! Akin to a personal shopper, we reflect our clients’ taste and travel style. We curate travel specifically with you in mind and understand that travel, like fashion, is not one-size-fits-all.
