Custom Travel Planning
Custom Travel Planning Takes time and has an extensive amount of collaboration with local on-site professionals, suppliers, and other related entities involved in a custom journey. The process involves a commitment between you the client, and Celebration Escapes Travel Consultants. Even though we are paid a commission from certain suppliers for actually booking the trip, there is no compensation for the time invested by your Travel Consultant in designing, creating, coordinating, orchestrating and delivering a final Itinerary for your trip.
All Customized Itineraries
For all customized itineraries, after the Creative Planning Session has completed, Celebration Escapes requires an upfront trip commitment fee of $500.00. This fee is non refundable but applicable to your final invoice. This fee confirms our commitment to the traveler to work within requested guidelines and budgets as agreed before the planning of a trip starts.
This assures us that you are committed to a collaborative process throughout the property selection and itinerary design stages of building your experience. A collaborative process with us will result in an itinerary that exceeds your needs, interest, requests and requirements. You will be delighted when your dreams transform into spectacular memories.
If you decide that you do not want to travel or your plans change and you can’t book the trip, Celebration Escapes will keep the commitment fee for time spent on developing the itinerary and working with the suppliers for the trip.
If You Move Forward With Your Journey
If you move forward and book your trip, the Commitment Fee will be applied to your final payment. Celebration Escapes will not charge you an additional fee for the development work but instead, apply the payment for the commitment fee to your trip.

Custom Travel Planning For Professional Entities

The Travel Consultant will Hold a Complimentary Creative Planning Session with the Management of the Corporation, Organization, Association, or Charity to determine the exact desires for the group travel.

World Wide Pet Transport Services
Celebration Escapes is passionate about the safety of all travelers, especially our pets!
With airline pet transport fees skyrocketing and restrictions placed on how animals can be transported on commercial airlines, and so many of certain breeds dying in flight, we are committed to your pet's safe travel.
We have partnered with World Wide Pet Transport, who are the absolute best animal pet transport company. They know all the rules, regulations, which airlines are best for what animals, quarantine issues, passports, immunizations and proper documentation for your pet's travel.
Snub-nosed pets are particularly vulnerable to airline travel and it takes an expert to coordinate with the appropriate airlines, the time of year they can travel, and what they need during flight.
You want to have the very best for your pet's travel, to insure they can participate fully with you in the destinations.
No hassles, No extra airline charges, No problems when they arrive in country, and No worries - Your pets will be delivered to you promptly at your in-country location.
Relocating your pets internationally can be a complicated process requiring extensive knowledge of both import and export requirements.
Factors such as veterinary documentation, quarantine regulations, flight availability and restrictions, flight kennel requirements, timing, and boarding can make it a daunting task for any pet owner to overcome.
The knowledgeable staff at World Wide Pet Transport can simplify this process so you can focus on the many other things that are involved in a household relocation, vacation, or extended foreign travel.
We are passionate about your pet’s safety, and your peace of mind!
Our company was established in 1975 when moving with pets was not an industry. Our main concern then and still today, is moving the family pets with care and minimal amount of stress to both the pets entrusted to our care and the pet owner.
No matter what your destination is, we offer the fastest, safest, solution to your pet travel needs.
