Why do you think travelers use travel agents? Smart travelers save time, money and headaches by booking with a travel agent. We have up-to-date real information on what’s happening around the world. We are also there to help you when there’s a problem. If a volcano erupts, a flood happens, or you miss your connection, a travel agent is there to take care of you. Most of the time, in an emergency, you can’t even get through to the airlines. Why travel alone when for the same price, you can have an advocate on call.
Customer testimonial; I have already recommended you to my friend and will use you again, my seats were excellent, and we will certainly book with you in the future. Many thanks Ms.Lura
Ms Lura I have enjoyed my lovely vacation and plan to book more in the future. lol

I have utilized the services of The Travel Professional since 1997 when she handled our honeymoon trip to St. Lucia. Not only has my immediate family continued to utilize the services of The Travel Professional, my extended family, friends and associates have used their services. Lura has always been available when needed for last minute trips and changes. She is always concerned about the well-being of her clients. I will continue to use her services and recommend others who are looking for a first-rate, first-class travel professional to assist with any travel needs, both personal and professional.
We had a wonderful time Lura and all went extremely well. Thank you for all you did to make it so very special.
I would be happy to answer any concerns or survey you have.

hey Ms. Lura....it was really nice and the people were really nice......no the stay and the air was perfect and I would definitely refer your business to family and friends......next time we may want to stay at sandals because the crowd was little older and more calm and when we went over there-you really don't have to leave off that resort-they had EVERYTHING and of course EVERYTHING cost
but our Bahamas stay was awesome...we liked that better than Venice, Italy because it was warm, wall-to-wall black people that were nice and helpful, and the ocean was just beautiful...thanks for everything Leatta
"THE BEST SERVICE MONEY CAN BUY".
I started not to write this review because,if you get to many travelers Lura, I fear I wouldn't get the same personal service I've been getting for the pass ten years.The best way I can explain Lura's service is; You have never travel until you have use the professional travel services provided by Travel Professional the-"Awesome"

After using another agent to book my first European trip and seeing just how wrong everything went, I was VERY pleased to see just how right everything went when I booked my next two European vacations with Lura Sims - Travel Professional the. Everything went smoothly and as planned, from the tranfers, to the hotel stay, excursions and everything in between. It's also great to know that I can contact her by phone and she's available and ready to work, no matter how far away I am, or the time difference."
