I love the way you can rediscover yourself when travelling in Europe. By being able to wander through the iconic cities and medieval towns, you connect with the past and bring a new appreciation of the art, architecture, food and wines of these areas home with you to enjoy again and again. And I love finding those out of the way places and new experiences that can make the trip that much more special and exceed even the highest expectations. So when you are looking to explore Europe, and make it yours, talk to me first!

I am a huge fan of Africa. From Morocco to Egypt, South Africa with its cultures and history, fabulous vineyards and luxury safari camps to East Africa and its plethora of wildlife, there is something here for everyone. But for me, it always comes back to East Africa. Kenya & Tanzania offer so much to see, and the wildlife viewing is unequaled. I even can recommend the side tour to Rwanda to trek for gorillas, an incredible experience I highly recommend. So whether its a family trip, a luxury honeymoon, or that special anniversary you want to make a splash with, I can find just the right fit for you.

One of the things I really enjoy is taking a cruise. It truly gives me a chance to relax and unwind, while still taking me back to my favorite destinations, as well as giving me a nice sample of some new ones I might just decide to explore more at leisure at a later date. I enjoy the style of Holland America and the elegance of Cunard, but my all-time favorite is Crystal Cruises, which always manages to exceed my expectations, from the exquisite food options, to the small shore excursion group sizes, and the attentive and gracious staff. If always tell clients, there are a lot of different cruise lines, because there a lot of different expectations, so it is my job to ensure you are on the right line to get the best experience, and that's what I enjoy most about planning cruises.

Alaskan Cruise!
As a DIY traveler, we looked into using a travel agent for such a huge trip that we had been saving for years for. She answered all of our questions & we never had an issue, but know if we would have she would have solved it for us! Highly recommend her over the DIY method! Easier & less stressful!

Fantastic Family Vacation.
In this day and age of booking everything online and hoping it all works out is just not the way I want to plan my once a year, hard earned family vacation anymore. I have "DIY" it myself a couple of times with less than stellar results.

And then a friend referred me to Linda at Premium Travel, My wife and I sat down with her and in just a few minutes she was showing us options for travel and lodging, additional side trip destinations and one of a kind events and entertainment experiences we had no idea were available and all within our budget. Our trip was amazing and not one - I repeat not on glich!

Take a vacation from planning your vacation. Forget the online searching and call a "Pro" - Linda Bator at Premium Travel.

Pay for the Experience...NOT a Trip
Linda puts together an AWESOME experience. Note I didn't say trip, I said experience!! Linda, puts together a memorable trip. The trip can be an overnight at a water park in Wisconsin with skip the line. Or a once in a lifetime trip to Rome with a concert-like mass in Vatican City. Linda does not disappoint, she will get you what you want and more. STAY OFF THE INTERNET!! You get what you pay if you save 25.00 that is the amount you pay for the loss of customer service, loss of piece of mind. You never knew you needed a travel agent until your connection is cancelled and your travel agent leaves you a voicemail that she has already switch your flight and do NOT get in the re-route line for the next flights. Pay for the privilege of having an experienced agent.

Club Soccer travel
Linda has been extremely helpful with my family's traveling needs. She always anticipates the items I had not considered. We won't use anyone else.
