Title: Travel Consultant
Agency: Square 1 Travel Service Ltd
Email: linda@square1travel.com
Phone: 250 334 0355

The more I travel the more I realize that people are the same the world over; gracious hosts, generous with their culture and eager to share a part of their lives with travellers like me.

Travel consulting has been my career since 2005 when I graduated from North Island College's Travel Counselling program. Since every trip is unique to the person planning it I take as much care with a package as I do with a three-month adventure. I do love to piece together flights, trains, cars, tours and accommodations to come up with the journey the client has been dreaming of.

If you ask me my favourite destination I'll probably tell you it's the one I've just returned from! Among my favourites so far: Quebec City, New York City, New Zealand, Sydney Australia, Siena and Venice in Italy, Chiang Mai in Thailand, Bali... I just can't narrow it down.

I also love to cruise and am about to take a river cruise along the Danube, first taking in Berlin, Dresden and Prague and ending up in Bucharest, Romania.

From my very first trip to the Dominican Republic - soaking up the sun and sipping on Pina Coladas - I knew that travel was in my soul. Returning to the blistery winder weather had me longing for more; dreaming of my next destination. My dreams have brought me to many destinations in Central America and the Caribbean, and I can not wait to experience more.

After the birth of my youngest son, I decided to take my passion for travel and turn it into a career. Whether you are looking for a little fun-in-sun, a romantic retreat, or the adventure of a lifetime, I am dedicated to helping you put together your dream vacation. No matter if you are a solo traveller longing to revel in the history of Mach Picchu, a family looking to escape to the magic of Disney, or a group yearning for adventure, I look forward to customizing each package to your specific travel needs within your budget.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. Helen Keller


Explore

Just as a chef requires many fine ingredients to create a culinary delight, or an artist requires and creates many different colors to paint a masterpiece, a travel designer carefully chooses travel components most suited to each individual traveller to craft an exclusive travel itinerary. Let's explore the possibilities!


Discover

Discovering the highlights and hidden gems of cities and regions is what makes travel so exciting and fun. Since everyone has their own idea of what may be fun, we will need to discover what is on the "wanderlist" of each traveler.

So, who will be enjoying this adventure to a distant land? Parents, partners, children, grandparents, family and friends. What activities and sights are on the "must do" or "must see" list? Are there preferences, likes/dislikes and special requirements that need to be considered? The answers to these questions will assist us in offering the best and most suitable travel options.


Connect

And finally we add the sparkle! The best way to connect with a place is to enjoy the hospitality of a local. Experiences are selected to ensure you have the ability to connect with the locals who have a great passion to share the knowledge and love of a reionit with others. One of these experiences could include savoring a special meal at a local favorite restaurant, attending a musical or theatre performance, visiting a farmer's market, enjoying a local festival, or participating in an authentic cultural experience.


Travel Services

We can assist with a number of travel services including (but not limited to) the following:

Service fees apply to bookings of individual components.

  • Accommodation - farm stay to boutique to luxury
  • Airport Transfers
  • All inclusive vacation packages
  • Australia Electronic Travel Authority - must be obtained prior to arrival
  • Cruises - ocean, river, yacht and expedition
  • Cultural Activities
  • Escorted tours

An accidental fall, spinal surgery, multiple complications and relearning basic skills for mobility and independence left Debora with a permanent walking disability and need for a career change. As a TICO-certified travel agent, ACTA travel professional member and accessible traveler, Debora’s expertise includes helping book travel for people with accessibility issues. She knows how people with big or small challenges feel when told “You can’t go there,” because she felt that, too.

“Travel is more complicated than ever and keeping in the know is a full-time job,” says Debora about why a travel agent’s services are still necessary in the Internet era. “The growing trend of multi-generational groups travelling together is a complicated purchase. My ability to help with planning, options and logistics to source the best offer based on what’s important to my clients saves time, stress and cost. In short, I am the human element invested in my client’s happiness and trip satisfaction. I listen, suggest, adjust, understand – unlike a search engine or anonymous voice. I don’t just sell destinations. I create travel experiences, including for the discerning traveler looking for the unique.” Life is short and there’s a whole world out there.

Three weeks after graduation, Cecilia got a job with Iberia Airlines of Spain, where she worked for five years. Iberia Airlines moved its operations to Miami, and Cecelia decided not to move with the company. She worked for a small travel agency until she got married and moved to Columbus.

Cecilia continued to work in the travel industry, first at the now-defunct Travel World in Columbus and Carlson-Wagonlit in Fort Benning.

Almost 14 years ago, she found her way to Travels By Donna, where you’ll find her happily working with all kinds of people, sending them all over the world.

She loves working in the industry, being able to help people with their travel plans. Cecilia also loves traveling herself so she can tell clients the best places to visit.

And don’t forget, Cecilia speaks Spanish, so if you need some help, she’s the one to call.

Hi Everyone My name is Correna Tymchen, I have been in the travel industry going on eleven years. I enjoy travel of course lol, sports, reading and a little gym time. My travel adventures have taken me on a few cruises, Royal Caribbean, Holland America and as well Princess. The itineraries varied from the Mexican Riviera to numerous ports in the Caribbean. I have also been lucky enough to have visited Japan with Silk Holidays, Thailand (Krabi) and as well Hong Kong again with Silk Holidays and the Hong Kong Tourist Board. One of my most memorable experiences was to the Cook Island with Anderson Vacations, the sand, water and people always make me smile when I reminisce. Though my adventures across the pond have been limited until the spring of 2020, I did visit Scotland and London. The Highlands are a must when you are in the UK. Yes, I have been to Puerto Vallarta too many times to count, Cancun and the Mayan about the same, also I have visited Jamaica twice, Antigua twice and then Barbados. Disneyworld was one of my busiest trips to date, I spoiled my niece as my son was too cool to travel with mom when he was a teenager lol. I have also been to Las Vegas a few times and there really isn’t anything better than Vegas when you want a four or five day getaway. My future plans for travel include a Just for You tour this coming spring. As a Solo traveller I am always on the lookout for any options for myself and as well friends and family. The single supplements that we have to pay when we travel alone just don’t seem fair but when you look at it from a business stand point it makes sense. There are a few companies in the travel industry who understand that singles do travel and don’t want to be penalized and as well don’t want to share accommodations. You have options from ocean cruise, river cruise and as well guided tours. We all would like to travel with likeminded travellers, I have no problem travelling along but some just are not comfortable being on their own for their full trip and would like to have someone to maybe have lunch or dinner with once in awhile.

I am not a robot!

With all the technology swirling around today it is easy to forget that the human experience can offer a very special touch that will never be duplicated.

I am passionate about fuelling the desire for my clients to travel and matching them up with the perfect destination and vacation experience.I want to ensure they are well looked after prior to travel, in destination and upon return home.

Having had the opportunity to visit many countries, experience many different vacations, and educate myself for the past 24 years , I enjoy passing along my own personal touch and travel expertise to you!

A frequent question I am graced with would be, “what has been your favourite trip?” For a professional travel planner with many years of travel experience and many types of vacations to look back at it is a difficult question. A European River Cruise and an educational tour to Australia would rank amongst the highest! Of course, the many all inclusive vacations to Mexico and various Caribbean islands have always been cherished with my family and Hawaii is an island dream to revisit one day!

Where in the world can I send you next?

✈The power to make your dreams a reality are only a click away ✈

Our Yolanda Meador, president and founder of You Deserve It Vacations began her career in travel over 15 years ago. The University of North Texas graduate earned a BBA in Human Resources, and later a MBA from University of Phoenix. In 1997, Yolanda attended Brook haven College, receiving her Travel Agent Certification. Shortly after, Yolanda completed Sabre courses and a host of other certifications that qualify her as a specialist in the world of travel..

Although Yolanda’s professional achievements are admirable, love for family is fundamentally the reason for her success. As a wife and mother, she understands the importance of living a quality and eventful life. Coincidentally, planning numerous family vacations and luxury getaways for friends, enabled Yolanda to discover her love for travel.

Yolanda’s love for travel and her desire to see the world, is the driving force that propelled her to launch My Worldwide Travel in 1997. One of the most pivotal moments in her career is an all girls’ trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas in October 1999. The women decided they would go and have fun saying, “We deserve it.” Both inspired and even more excited, Yolanda realized her mission. Upon returning home to Dallas, TX, Yolanda changed the name of her travel agency to You Deserve It Vacations

Yolanda is continually motivated by the mission that inspired her in 1999. When asked why the travel profession is right for her, Yolanda said, “I love making people’s dreams come true…more importantly,

“You Deserve It.”
