Hello, my name is Martino Daniels. 15 years ago I left a great job as a Public Relations Manager for a
very successful trade show company to pursue a career in the travel industry. I have always had a passion for travel and took my first trip when I was 3 years old to Europe with with parents, and although I don't remember much about that trip, I do have fond memories of the trips that followed that one, and there
were many of them. In my late teens and early 20's I started traveling alone, and with friends, and always booked with travel agents. Most agents I made my reservations with were kind and professional, but
something always seemed to be missing. Some were actually afraid to make recommendations on countries and hotels, and others were lacking passion and enthusiasm. I vowed if I ever became a Travel Agent, I would change that. I would treat my friends and clients trips like my very own. I would work within their budgets, I would ask them exactly what they were looking for in a vacation, and give them their best options at a great price along with exceptional service. I would make recommendations on destinations and hotels based on my own experiences as well as the feedback from my clients, and I would tell them exactly what they could expect at the destination or hotel they chose to visit. Over the past 15 years I have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, the U.S and Canada. As a travel agent I have booked over 45,000 people to destinations all over the world and I have worked side by side with some of the best owners, managers, marketing experts, and agents in the travel industry. I have also written a travel tips book, and have had my travel blogs and photos published in print, and online. I literally live and breath travel. In November of 2016, I launched Cityplace Travel. This is an agency that is dedicated to you, the traveler. It's an agency that is going to put you, and your travel needs first Myself, and my associates are here to help you make booking your trip as
painless as possible. More importantly though, we are here to give you the service that you deserve.
Whether you are looking to book a hotel, a flight, an all inclusive package, a cruise, a tour, or an adventure travel bucket list trip, we are help to you, and provide you with free quotes, travel tips and more. You can book directly on our website 24/7, over the phone, or contact us by email. Thank-you for choosing Cityplace Travel, we really appreciate your business.
Chris graduated from Centennial Collage with a degree in Travel & Tourism. She has been with Collacutt Travel since 1999. Her passion is custom made itineraries with a special interest in the South Pacific and Africa. Her favorite destination to explore is a tie between Australia (been six times), and Southern Africa.

My first glimpse of the Travel and Tourism industry when I was in high school, I did my Co-Op at a Travel Wholesaler. I was very fascinated and interested in Geography, far off lands and island but my path took me to a degree Business and Marketing. While at jobs, I am always looking up travels, promoting destinations to families and friend. And that was moment I thought this is my destiny so I got my credentials. I began working in the travel agency about 7 years ago. I have planned trips that travelers could only dream. From world cruising to the Idyllic Islands to a fly into our Canadian providences. I have done from singles trip to weddings, honeymoon and anniversary. I would say my specialities is the Caribbean, where you will be mesmerised with tropical music, surrounded with endless breezy beaches, luxurious to affordable tropical resorts not forgetting intoxicating nightspots.
Scott grew up travelling the world from a very young age and although his studies included obtaining a Law Degree, Masters in Law and Business in England, his love and passion for travel still prevailed. He decided to return to Canada and start a family business, Universal Travel, along with his Mother, and Brother. This agency has now been in business for over 18 years, currently operating from two locations in Newfoundland and has come to obtain many travel awards over the years. Some of the reputable companies that have acknowledged Universal Travel’s outstanding service include Carnival Cruise Lines, Globas Family of Brands, Encore Cruises, Travel Savers and many others.
Scott is most known for is his passion and his number one priority is taking care of his clientele. He treats each vacation he books as if it were his own, and the repeat business peaks volumes. This is something that sets him apart from the rest. As a family owned business, Scott was able to choose the décor and layout of his offices with a unique flavor that you won’t find in any other agency. From the time you walk in the doors, you are welcomed with beautiful leather furniture,mahogany touches and a fire place. The staff have individual offices to create a private environment so that they’re comfortable discussing all aspects of their vacation freely. Scotts motto has always been that the vacation should begin from the time you walk in the door to start planning. And he has definitely achieved this.
When he was just 5 years old Scott, his family (including his Mother Daphne and brother Derrick who are also involved in the business), embarked on an "around the world" 6 week cruise. He received an education that you cannot obtain from
a classroom and his passion began. Scott has done over 300 cruises, including river cruises, luxury liners, small intimate ships, large cruise ships, and everything in between. He has been to 6 continents, and just over 100 countries. He has done just about every type of travel and tour experience you can think of and from what we can tell, there is no stopping in sight! With this experience, he can properly train his staff and assist in finding the perfect vacation suitable for every person
who walks through the door.

My love for travel grew as well as my knowledge of Costa Rica which inspired me to become a Travel Specialist and open my own home based travel agency. As a travel professional I continue to build unique vacations experiences today for my clients. Laurie's expertise and connections with local in-country partners makes for a winning team designing travel itineraries and group travel.
My favorite destination is Costa Rica inspired by my love for the outdoors, its people, and adventure travel. My next destination for travel is to Peru to experience the culture, secret ceremonies & historical past of the Inca's.
I am currently a travel specialist for Costa Rica, Peru, Malta, Adventures by Disney, and Scotland. I am currently completing courses in Active Adventure Specialist & Credited Cruise Counselor with the Travel Institute.
My passion for travel extends beyond my role as a Travel Specialist to assisting as a tour guide in Costa Rica. I also have a certificate in CPR/First Aid. I enjoy hiking, zip lining, yoga, and surfing. I divide my time between Canada & Costa Rica calling each country my home. I am a proud member of Adventure Travel & Cruise Line International Associations.
Friends and family would probably describe me using two words, Food and Travel. Travel satisfies my insatiable need for the exciting and the exotic. I like to be fully immersed when I travel and enjoy using all of my senses when I explore to really get to know the places I visit. Each place that I visit changes me a little, and I feel I become a better, more authentic person. No words or pictures can fully describe what it is like to watch the sunset over the Costa Rican beaches, peer into the aqua lagoons of Bora Bora, or watch a lion cub nuzzle his mom on a hazy sunny afternoon on the plains of the Serengeti.
Travel planning is what I love, and what I do best. I would love the opportunity to share my stories, experiences and expertise with you in order to help you save time and maximize your experience on your next dream vacation.
I specialize in Destination Weddings, Exotic Honeymoons, Safaris and Culinary Experiences.

River Cruise Specialist:
In the world of river cruising, sail along peaceful waterways that provide you access to sights and experiences. From bustling marketplaces to magnificent cathedrals. And the ability to dock in the heart of city centres and charming towns.
The river cruise experience is different than that the ocean cruise experience. River cruising offers a more intimate experience with on average of 100 to 150 guests on each boat, floating on some of the world’s most famous rivers. Comfortable and convenient, river cruising offers a greater variety of destinations than you can find any other way.
Spend less time getting there and more time being there.
Cruises are available in Europe, Southeast Asia, China, the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon and the US Mississippi.
River cruising can be as short as two or three days or as long as a month. Also consider combining a river cruise and a land tour into a package.
Join us, in having one of our consultants plan a river cruise adventure designed for you that will inspire you from the beginning to the end. Call me at 905-240-6344 (Whitby Branch)

“Travel takes me out of the ordinary and into a world of wonder, magic, and adventure.” Walt Disney World is Anita's favorite destination. “I love the smells on Main Street, the corny jokes of Jungle Cruise, the uniquely themed restaurants, and the general excitement of feeling like a kid again. Disney tells a story with every attraction and resort.”
Anita graduated from Hood College in 1987 with a Bachelor’s degree in Recreation. She has a professional background in Parks and Recreation. After 30 trips to Walt Disney World and years of sharing her Disney secrets and tips with others, she became an independent Travel Professional in 2014 associated with a Florida agency.

PHEW, life can be tough in our host countries - missing home and struggling to afford reunions, never mind holidays.
I know the struggle, I live it! If I can help support a fellow Saffa, I will.
As part of the TTAND umbrella, I share resources with hundreds of other agents, if I am clueless, one of them will have the T-shirt..
I charge no extra fee on flights I help with, on condition that you insure your travel through me. Yes, I earn a commission, but from harsh experience, I am a firm believer in travel insurance. On a visit from SA to Canada 20 odd years ago, I experienced an etopic pregnancy. Young, healthy.. my hospitalization and surgery cost $26 000 - converted into SA Rands, was same price as my 3 bedroom townhouse.
Manulife is our preferred underwriter, as a group, we have a strong relationship and as up to now, my clients have not had issues with claims being honoured. That being said, there is always requirements to prove claim but is not a forest of trees, and can avoid a lifetime of financial hardship.
Call me, text me, email me.. let us see how we can find a vacation within your budget. I am more than happy to try match a quote, or find affordable routes and destinations..
warm regards ~ Di.

Along with several sun destinations such as Cancun, Rivera Maya, Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa, Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, St Kitts, Nassau, and Montego Bay.

Next up, Sagrada Família in Spain and sipping port wine on the Douro River in Portugal. The bucket list is endless...
