Yes, you can book it yourself online, but you are not an expert on every location. Travel agents are a great source of hidden gems, exclusive events and discounts. A Travel agency can make sure that your trip is tailored to you, assist you in case of unexpected problems, and help you anticipate potential issues in advance. Just say “Plan my trip!”
No, and here’s why: Our travel agency has access to all sorts of chartered flights, wholesalers, and special discounts that aren’t available to the public. Your travel agent can always work within your budget, and he/she will focus on making sure that you get a solid value for every vacation dollar you spend!
Yes, you can! Our travel agents often work with clients who use their points to book flights and can guide you on how to use any other points you may have racked up! Don’t think just because you have points that you don’t deserve quality advice!
If you’ve already decided the travel provider you want (i.e., the hotel, cruise or tour company), we’ll reserve your desired travel for you and charge no travel planning fees. If you want a collaborative exploration of options with a Travel Byrd travel agent for a custom experience, we request a Research and Design Fee of $245. For that fee, our advisor works to get to know you and your criteria for the trip, delivers options for you to consider, reserves the options you choose, acts as your main point of contact during the trip, and follows up with you after the trip to learn what was ideal and what could have been improved . . . so we can make the next journey even more spectacular. For a five-star traveler, the upgrades and perks we deliver typically far outweigh this planning fee. Also, our planning fee is covered by travel insurance, so if you decide to purchase travel insurance, the fee is counted as one of the non-refundable travel expenses that are covered.

We recently booked a vacation through Kaitlyn Skapura with The Travel Byrds, and we are beyond thrilled with her outstanding service and exceptional attention to detail. From start to finish, Kaitlyn went above and beyond to ensure our dream vacation became a reality. From the initial consultation, Kaitlyn listened attentively to our preferences, interests, and budgetary constraints. Her extensive knowledge of destinations and accommodations allowed her to curate an itinerary that perfectly matched our desires. Communication throughout the planning process was prompt and efficient. Kaitlyn promptly answered all our questions and provided invaluable recommendations to optimize our travel experience. Her attention to detail and personal touch gave us peace of mind, knowing that every aspect of our trip was carefully considered. Thanks to Kaitlyn's thorough planning, the flight arrangements, hotel bookings, and transfers were seamless.

Haley was great and walked us through everything. Planned on super short notice and she made sure it was amazing. Brought a baby to Italy and she made it easy. Ask for her!

I cannot recommend Kaitlyn enough! Our first trip to Italy was truly perfect and it wouldn’t have been without her planning it. Kaitlyn made sure everything was within walking distance for us and if not, she had transports planned and thoroughly explained how all trains/taxis/transports worked so we wouldn’t get confused. Between all of the tours and excursions and extra recommendations Kaitlyn gave, she truly exceeded our expectations. We can’t wait to work with her again!

Kaitlyn is a great planner! She planned a trip for my sister and I to spend a little over a week in Greece! Our itinerary was the perfect mix of historical, touristy, relaxing, and still had time to explore! The app had all of our dates, times and documents so we didn't have to keep up with emails or printouts. The hotels were in great locations with great views! The guides for the tours she recommended were knowledgeable and friendly! Kaitlyn was also able to help us get a ferry rescheduled and refunded when it was cancelled! Already booked my next trip with her!

Byrd, planned a stellar post destination wedding trip to Germany, Edinburgh and London with all kinds of special touches. The transportation from place to place was stress free and seamless. The accommodations she found for us were unique and spectacular, especially the Fingal boat hotel in Scotland where the service was the best I have received in any hotel. It was unique, beautiful, luxurious, and yet quaint at the same time, and the service was to die for. The tours were wonderful. The meal recommendations right on point and our activities matched our interests and were so much better than expected. The only problems we had (lost luggage) were outside of Byrd's control and the quality of the trip overshadowed the drama of the lost luggage. Would not want to do any trip without Byrd.

Thanks to the Travel Byrds, and Brittney Holbrook (travel advisor extraordinaire) specifically, I had an amazing, carefully planned trip to Scotland. In the beginning, I appreciated how Brittney listened to what I wanted for my trip, and together we adjusted things here are there to make sure it was exactly the experience I dreamed of. Brittney was mindful of my budget, responsive to my many questions leading up to the trip, and never made me feel rushed when we spoke - it was like she had all the time in the world for me. The Travel Byrd staff has some cookie cutter emails they send leading up to the trip, which were actually very helpful, with lots of useful tips that hadn't crossed my mind. Before departure, Brittney and I met and talked through all the details of my itinerary, and I felt very comfortable as I headed off. There were 1 or 2 bumps on the journey that couldn't have been planned for, and Brittney was quick to reply and help me resolve. I felt supported no matter what. This was my first experience with the Travel Byrds and with Brittney, and it was so positive, that I'm already thinking about my next adventure... with the help of Brittney of course! Before this trip, I would have never considered using the support of a travel agent, but after this, I can't honestly think of a reason why I would ever shoulder the planning alone ever again.

My husband and I worked with Tiffani to book the perfect honeymoon! She was extremely helpful throughout the entire process: from the beginning listening to our needs and wants and executing the perfect trip. No doubt will be using Tiffani in the future. 10/10 recommend!

Kudos to Brittney Holbrook who assisted me with a dream vacation to Italy this summer. She helped me to get to a tiny town in the Marche region where my daughter sang in an opera program and coordinated a seamless chain of travel transfers to get me and my daughter's boyfriend there in one piece! Her advice for hotels and tours in Rome, Bologna and Venice were perfect and the train schedules were easy to follow. We had a terrific time all thanks to Brittney's fine work! Cannot wait to call Brittney for my next adventure!!

Byrd and her team are very easy to work with! They send so many great ideas and ask for our input so they can customize the best trip possible. She has a great team and they are all more than willing to help out and plan every last detail.
