Unlike travel agents, The Destination Designer personally scouts all destinations that are serviced. Meaning your custom travel itinerary is not dependent on unreliable online resources and review sites. In addition, this provides you with exclusive access to experiences and rates. Furthermore, The Destination Designer is able to book with all types of travel operators, whether that be hotels, tour guides, Airbnb, boutique hotels or local experiences. Our booking decisions are not limited by travel agent backend platforms or commission based relationships. The Destination Designer's priority is your travel experience, preferences, needs and safety. Do you charge a service fee? Yes, all custom travel planning itineraries start at $500, but prices vary based on travel arranged, length of stay, and group size. How far in advance should I book? If you are planning to travel during peak season, booking as early as possible is ideal. A 3 or more month window could give you privilege to early booking rate incentives. Also, if you have specific preferences or needs (i.e. a sea view suite, private book excursion, etc.) booking 6 or more months is recommended.
