Start Planning Now! – January 2022
There’s no time like now to start planning for your vacation. Where do you want to go in 2022?
⏱ Need to get your passport?
Plan ahead and hurry! It’s taking around four and a half months to get passports back and around three months to get expedited passports. We recommend people to plan ahead and get them done now! Also, you need six months of validity on the back end of your passport when traveling internationally, so plan for that as well.
💍 It’s Wedding Planning Season!
We have had many people planning smaller, more intimate weddings and destination weddings are especially popular. Couples are often choosing tropical locations as the spot for their big day because of beautiful landscapes and the opportunity to gather away from every day hustle and bustle to celebrate. We’ve had some elopements booked! Give us a chance to quote you an intimate destination wedding, elopement, or honeymoon! There’s no cost to you for us helping you plan! You can contact us here or call 217.223.8747.
