Vacation planning can be a daunting task. You have to choose an airline, choose a vacation package, choose a destination—and then come all the “what if’s?” It’s a good thing Carnival Travel is located right in downtown Milwaukee, and Kelly Rueckl is happy to help!
Kelly purchased Carnival Travel in 2006 and has since turned the business into a professional travel organization that helps downtown businesses with all their travel needs in addition to world-wide vacation planning. Kelly transformed her love for travel into a business that she can share with her clients on a personal and professional level.
Q1: What are some trips for holiday travel?
A1: Plan ahead! If you are planning a trip for 2011, now is the time to book, as many of the best destinations and rates are taken up to 6 months in advance. The longer you wait, the more you pay.
Q2: What is your favorite destination?
A2: Mexico and Hawaii are two of my favorite places to vacation. Some parts of Mexico are becoming a little too cheesy (some parts of Cancun) and I highly recommend going south to Playa del Carmen or Riviera Maya.
Q3: What is your favorite Beach?
A3: You can’t beat Turks & Caicos. Beaches has a wonderful family resort there. It’s also a great spot for water sport lovers.
Q4: What is the best part of being a travel agent?
A4: I like the way I sell travel versus big companies. I spend time with my clients to find out their personality and discuss the places I’ve seen to give them the best travel advice. It’s very exciting to share my stories and experiences.
Q5: How do you feel about flying out of Milwaukee vs. Chicago?
A5: If you are going to save a few hundred bucks, it makes sense to fly out of Chicago. You have to take into account the time you save, the price of gas, and parking prices when you consider which airport to fly out of.
Q6: What is your most requested travel package?
A6: All-inclusive packages, by far. It’s a no hassle trip, one price and that’s all. You can stick your wallet in the safe at the hotel and relax.
Q7: What is one thing you would like Milwaukee residents to know about Carnival Travel?
A7: Carnival Travel does not charge to book your vacation. I can help you book your dream trip with a no-hassle guarantee and expert advice for the same price as you can find online. Stop on by!
