Teresa Saxe started as a travel agent in 1995, purchasing Holiday International Travel from local business woman Marge Kieffer. Throughout the years the business has had a few location changes, and impeccable customer service. Teresa has led many memorable group and international trips over the years in Europe, Australia, and China. She has also led cruises to Alaska, Panama Canal, The Caribbean, and New England.
Jamie Hipsher started as a full-time travel agent in November 2001. Jamie became interested in travel after a trip on September 11, 2001 when travel was forever changed. Jamie had delays and issues and Teresa Saxe was so helpful with insurance claims and questions. A position had recently opened at Holiday International Travel, and thus was born a long working relationship.
Something many people do not know is that Holiday International Travel does not charge any type of service fee for booking a trip unless the customer is booking a flight only and then it is a nominal fee. For instance, if a customer books a vacation through Disney Resorts or Carnival Cruise Line they are paying the same price that Holiday International Travel would have quoted them. The travel agency receives their commission from the companies they are booking for, not the individual customer. Knowing this, why wouldn’t you let the ladies at Holiday International Travel do the work for you?
Teresa and Jamie have first-hand experience in several destinations and are there for you before, during, and after your travels. If a customer has delays or interruptions, the ladies at Holiday International Travel are there to help. Teresa and Jamie will give their expert guidance throughout the process, plus do all the research, freeing up more time for their customers to fully enjoy their trip, or if needed take the headache out of correcting any unforeseen circumstances.
