Travel Agent

Keeping the best tradition of old world travel alive. I’ll plan for your trip as if it were my own!


3A-Travel was inspired by the romantic “Golden Age of Travel,” the 1930s, when service was just as important as getting to the destination. I feel that your vacation begins the moment you decide to take it.  I’m passionate about traveling. I love to travel, and I love to plan your travels. Over the years, even when I wasn’t in the travel business, I always helped others plan travel and offered advice. I was told over and over that I should open my own travel agency. So when afforded the opportunity, that’s exactly what I did.


Emphasizing a pleasant and trouble-free process, 3A-Travel guarantees a quality experience with a competent staff. We also work with a wealth of suppliers that offer some amazing amenities and booking incentives.  I can assist you in planning Disney vacations. I’ve taken a Disney land or cruise vacation every year for over 20 years—sometimes even 2 times a year. I also specialize in all-inclusive vacation packages and cruises, as well as guided and independent land tours.


In addition to planning vacations, I can help organize group and corporate travel.  As for travel Insurance, we just don’t sell it. We are licensed Travel Accident and Baggage handling brokers and understand the importance of insuring your vacation investment.  When you work with me, you’ll find that I’m very personable and provide excellent customer service. You will receive prompt and courteous replies from me, that’s a promise. I will research for your trip as if it were my own. I’m honest, and I believe in the products that I offer you.  Hopefully we’ll develop a long term relationship, as I have come to do with so many clients in the past, as both business partners and friends.


So let’s start creating those memories. Just tell us when and where you want to go, what you desire to see, and what your budget range is. Let us be the ones to do the intricate legwork   while you just sit back, relax, and think about your next vacation.  3A-Travel is a 3rd Alternative, Inc. (3A) company. 3rd Alternative is a quality technology company that has been operating since 1991. Primary services include computer consulting and providing Internet services.

Keep it Simple


In the past we have mentioned many times that the markets should not dictate one’s life.  Considering risk tolerance, we keep it simple with most strategies.  If something is going to keep you up at night, then it’s probably not the best fit.  No matter how simple these thoughts are, it has nothing and everything to do with the recent chatter we have been experiencing.


We have had the usual and not so usual questions come up during casual conversations with clients, business associates and friends.


“Should I come out of equities now?”


“Don’t you think with all the political turmoil the stock market will do poorly”?


“What are other people doing”?


“All my friends seem to be making so much money with stocks”.


While it’s true that the equity markets had monumental returns since the lows of 2009, the inherent risks that is associated with investing were ubiquitous.  And today as well as going forward, nothing changes.   We know that there is risk in every market, equities and fixed income alike.  There is risk in being over weighted in asset classes and/or sectors.  Of course, there is the risk of not being invested as well.  Recently we gave a presentation of our Project SAFE (Seniors Against Financial Exploitation) and a senior citizen who was in the audience was telling us how she sold all her stocks and took large capital gains due to fear of the political environment and wanted to know if she should buy everything back.


We have countless stories and anecdotes about how emotions guided investment decisions. Unfortunately, most of these stories don’t have favorable out comes.  Risking sounding like the proverbial broken record (for those of us who remember LP’s and 45’s), having a balanced portfolio that is built to reach your goals is paramount.  Humbly, the goal should be results, not performance. So, going full circle and keeping it simple, why take unnecessary risk?
