More than 70 percent of Americans are planning to take at least one, if not two vacations this year. With all the choices of travel and information that is available on the Internet, one may ask, “Why should I use a travel agent?”
Michele Wirth, owner of Simply Travel has a simple answer – because a travel agent can offer customized experiences that no one else can.
“I love the challenge of planning the perfect vacation for a client; One that they will love within a budget that is comfortable for them,” said Wirth. “I love helping my clients in the planning process. I know that they are breathing a bit easier knowing I am handling things for them. “
Married for 29 years and the mother of three grown children, Wirth opened Simply Travel in 2013 in Riverview and has never looked back.
“I didn’t come to this business for any other reason than my love of travel and people,” said Wirth. “I always go above and beyond for my clients and always have their best interest in mind. I am not limited to certain suppliers so I can always tailor what I am offering to my client’s specific needs.
Wirth prides herself in building relationships with her clients. She also enjoys working with groups to plan group travel for family reunions, big birthday celebrations, retirement celebrations, school reunions and destination weddings.
“I want my customers to feel free to call, email or text me any time not only to plan a new trip but also for inspiration or advice and to know I’ll always have their best interest in mind,” said Wirth. “I love the relationships that I have formed with so many of my repeat clients! The fact that they refer me over and over is the best reward!”
Some of her favorite places she has visited are Venice, Italy and St. John, Virgin Island. Wirth recently returned from her first trip to Hawaii after planning several trips on behalf of clients.
“It was amazing,” said Wirth. “I am in love with Hawaii and the Aloha spirit of the Hawaiian people. You cannot truly appreciate what that means unless you’ve experienced it.”
Wirth has an amazing and talented staff waiting to guide you in making one of your most important decisions.
