Leesburg Travel Agent – Carol Cane

Leesburg Travel Agent Carol's Trips

Hi, Welcome To Carol’s Trips!

Leesburg Travel Agent, Carol Cane of Carol’s Trips has more than 25 years experience in the travel industry~

Travel has always been a passion for my husband Tom and me. Back in 1987, we decided to team up with an agency in the Philadelphia area and work on a part-time basis, Our first group cruise was leaving from Philadelphia and sailing over to Bermuda. At that point, we caught the “cruise bug” and decided to be a little more serious about the business. Disney World was our #1 land destination and Celebrity was our #1 cruise line. In 2004 Tom retired from the PA Dept. of Corrections and we moved to sunny Florida. Hurricane Jeanne welcomed us to Florida.

Becoming a Florida Travel Agent 

Living in Florida changed our lives as well as our business, bus Trips became a big part of the requests we were receiving. Residing in the Leesburg area gave us access to two great performing art centers; Tampa and Orlando, and of course casinos are another favorite destination.

With over 25 years of experience we decided to venture out on our own and as a result, Carol’s Trips was established. Customer Service is our #1 priority next to planning your dream vacation, group excursion, honeymoon or a destination that might be on your “bucket list”. Where ever you want to go, we would be honored to fulfill your vision.

February, 2017, Travel Tip

When should I arrive at the airport?

Always check before leaving for the airport, to see if your flight is delayed or possibly canceled.  Delayed and canceled flights lead to longer lines and you may need to arrive even earlier so as not to miss your flight or an alternate flight if required.

November, 2016 Travel Tip

Should I book a cruise with a Travel Agent or directly with the cruise line or with a website?

Rule of thumb ~ it is recommended to book a cruise through a travel agent.  Large agencies have group bookings on hundreds of cruises; they can book you into these groups, not only scoring you lower cruise rates but also extra amenities.  These amenities can include on-board credits, free drinks, specialty dinning and/or spa credits.  Not only do you get these extra perks, but you have easy access to a travel professional who can answer all of your questions and will help you have the best cruise possible.
