Professional Fee Schedule
I begin each new client travel matter with a detailed conversation, at no charge, to identify such trip specifics such as goals, preferences, concerns, “must haves”, fees and budget. Only after this preliminary conversation, if the client desires to move forward, do I charge the requisite, nonrefundable professional fees. These fees are due regardless of whether the trip materializes. As mentioned in my FAQ, my compensation derives from both supplier commission and professional fees. Neither alone is sufficient to enable the level of service I provide to my client. There are numerous models for advisor compensation, including hourly charges or annual subscription. I have chosen this transactional paradigm as the most transparent from the client standpoint.
Customized land itinerary:
Fees begin at $350 for a customized trip for 2. Additional fees apply for 3 or more passengers, which we will discuss prior to their implementation.
I assess a 15% service fee on travel components which do not include commission.
