I offer a full range of services to meet all of your travel objectives. Whether you’re interested in bespoke luxury travel or private tours, a honeymoon or cruise, a family vacation or going on safari, we work together to bring your travel vision to life. I can plan as much or as little of your travel as you wish, including your itinerary, accommodations, tours, cruises, excursions, activities, transfers, and travel insurance. Armed with travel experience, superb connections, wonderful resources and planning expertise, my goal is to exceed your expectations. Get in touch and let’s start planning!


An initial meeting or phone call begins the planning process. We discuss the services I can provide, your travel wishes, accommodation preferences, vacation budget, experiences you would like to have, special requests, and more. Once I have all the details, I create your customized itinerary, and we work together to fine-tune it.


As a Luxury Advisor with Travel Edge, I often have special access to providing you with breakfast, room upgrades, hotel amenities, food/beverage credits, etc. that can make your trip all the more special. My connections open doors and elevate your experiences.

Terms & Conditions

Travel documents, including up-to-date passports, visas, and any health/vaccination certificates required are your responsibility to acquire and bring with you on your trip. Valid Passports are absolutely required for all international destinations, and the expiration date should be at least 6 months following the return date of your trip. Some countries require that your passport have two to four blank visa/stamp pages. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met. When travelling domestically or internationally, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) advise that everyone carry at least two forms of acceptable identification to board a flight. Examples: DHS-designated enhanced driver’s license, USA Passport, a foreign government passport. The name, date of birth and gender that appear on the identification card must exactly match the same such data that is listed on airline ticket(s) and booking records. Additionally, a visa and vaccinations may be required. Please note that even when a visa is issued, a traveler may be denied entry since each country’s local immigration officials make the final entry decision. Should a visa not be issued, Travel Edge and your travel advisor, Alli Allen, are not responsible for lost payments made toward the contemplated trip. Visit the US State Department  website on a regular basis for information regarding incidence of disease, terrorism, safety issues, crime, the need for travel documentation (such as passports, visas, proof of health/vaccination certificates), health hazards, and other restrictions regarding travel to your domestic and/or international destination(s), and re-entry into the United States. Required or advised inoculations you decide to obtain upon the advice of your personal physician may need to be administered in a series of doses months ahead of your planned departure and such time element should be taken into account by you when making deposits and/or nonrefundable final payments. Visit the CDC website and/or confer with a travel clinic for more information.

Travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Travelers are urged to remain informed daily as to current news, as well as to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements, and advisories issued by the US Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at: TSA; DOT; FAA; CDC. It is the travelers’ responsibility to remain informed. Please refer to the Travel Resources page of this website for additional valuable information.

By offering travel for sale to particular destinations, Travel Edge and your Travel Advisor, Alli Allen, do not represent or warrant that travel to such points is advisable or without risk, and shall not be liable for costs, damages, or losses that may result from travel to such destinations. Participation constitutes acceptance of such events at each traveler’s own risk.

Disclaimer of Liability: Travel Edge and your travel advisor, Alli Allen, in providing services, shall not be responsible or liable for any acts, errors, omissions, losses, injuries, deaths, property damage, accidents, delays, non-performances, acts of God, any other irregularities, or any indirect or consequential damages resulting therefrom, which may be occasioned by the neglect, defaults, bankruptcies, or any other actions of the airlines, or third party suppliers engaged in the furnishing of travel services hereunder. Travel Edge and your travel advisor, Alli Allen, do not guarantee or ensure the services to be provided by any supplier, the financial position of suppliers, or the reimbursement for any loss experienced as a result of the financial condition of suppliers.

Travel Insurance Acceptance/Waiver

As your professional travel advisor, I strongly believe that travelers should protect their vacation investments by insuring their trip. I recommend that you purchase a travel insurance policy for the duration of your journey. Travel insurance gives you peace of mind that your investment may be protected, both before and during your trip. Insurance can protect you, your trip, and your travel investment in case you have to cancel or if something happens during your trip. It is a vital part of your travel arrangements.

Travel suppliers, airline carriers, or travel agencies do not compensate any of your unforeseen expenses in the event of failure to make your trip (missed flights, cruises, etc.), third party provider default, trip interruption, trip cancellation, emergency medical expenses, loss of health, death and/or accident, emergency medical evacuation/repatriation due to illness, natural disasters or acts of terrorism, baggage loss, baggage delay, etc.

As your travel advisor, I am happy to provide you with a free Travel Insurance quote and to make the necessary arrangements for coverage. Please review in detail the applicable Description of Coverage for a summary of the Plan details, including the benefits, coverage, limitations, and exclusions. For technical question, benefits, coverages, exclusions, and detailed policy explanations, I will refer you directly to the Regional Manager at the travel insurance company issuing your quote for answers.

Purchased travel services from a Travel Agency do not automatically contain insurance at any time as part of the service or the price, unless it is clearly stated that such insurance is included in the price by the supplier.

Should you decide NOT to purchase travel insurance, you must sign a travel insurance waiver (located in your Trip Planning and Client Information Packet) and assume sole financial liability for all direct and indirect consequences and costs resulting from events occurring before or during your trip.

The Client(s) does not have the right to demand compensation from the Travel Agency or Travel Advisor for any unforeseen travel expenses incurred as a direct result of cancellation or failure to make your trip, lost baggage, loss of health, death, accidents and/or emergency evacuation due to natural disasters or acts of terrorism.

***IMPORTANT NOTE: To be eligible for the waiver of pre-existing medical condition exclusion, the protection plan must be purchased within 14 days from the time you make your initial trip deposit. However, the plan can be purchased any day prior to departure.

COVID-19 Waiver

It is the Client'(s) responsibility to remain fully aware of the current global COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, the current travel warnings and restrictions, and the inherent and potential health risks involved in traveling, both in my home country and my travel destination(s). I understand that depending on where my travels take place, medical attention may not be readily available.

I am aware that additional screening procedures and restrictions may take place at airports and in public areas. I am aware that Immigration restrictions may be put in place before or during my travels. I will keep abreast of my destination country’s immigration requirements to confirm I will be permitted to enter the country, and also my home country/final destination’s requirements for my return.

In instances where required, I understand it is my sole responsibility to obtain a Covid-19 test and the results within the required time frame put forth by the supplier or destination, and to carry proof of the test results with me.

As the worldwide COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic remains ongoing at this time, I acknowledge that for this reason, and for other reasons not foreseeable at this time, my travel plans may be interrupted or cancelled by: the supplier that is providing them, a government entity, a third party over which my travel advisor, Alli Allen, and Travel Edge, have no control. I further acknowledge that the supplier’s own cancellation, rebooking and refund policies, subject to any applicable law that is now or may later be in effect, will govern my rights and remedies, including my right to receive a refund, in such an event.

I accept that my travel advisor, Alli Allen, and Travel Edge, cannot be held liable or responsible for any travel restrictions, changes to travel restrictions and requirements, illnesses, cancellations, financial losses, quarantining rules, or measures put in place at airports and my travel destination(s).

Moreover, I understand that should I elect to purchase travel insurance, the terms of the policy will dictate whether, and to what extent, coverage for any financial loss may exist under the circumstances. I understand that medical expenses/and or cancellation relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus may not be covered. 

I am aware that it is my personal decision to travel, and I am doing so with full knowledge of current travel recommendations and travel restrictions with regard to the Coronavirus COVID-19. I take full responsibility for my actions with regard to travel.
