Happy Holidays friends! It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?
I thought I would pop in and say hello, because I have some big news to share that I am pretty excited about.
After a lot of preparation, I am thrilled to announce the launch of Serena McClain Travel, a full-service travel planning company. I am officially open for business and moving full-speed ahead!
Those of you that have read this blog probably know that there is nothing I love more than traveling (except perhaps my family). I am incredibly passionate about not only exploring the world myself, but encouraging others to travel, and making sure that they have incredible awe-inspiring experiences when they do. When you combine that with my tendency to obsessively research, becoming a travel advisor seemed like a natural fit. So I did a lot of work, found an amazing host agency to work with, took a big leap of faith, and started my own travel company.
Are you sitting there thinking, “what exactly do you do?”
I get this question a lot. Basically, I work with you to create unique one-of-a-kind travel experiences. My job is to not only save you time, but make sure that you are getting the best value and quality when you travel. And if you’re not looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience and just want to a stay at a great hotel and get hooked up with some incredible perks, I can help with that as well. Through my affiliation with Brownell and Virtuoso, I have access to a wealth of resources that will directly benefit you. I’m able to give you exclusive upgrades, perks, and an elevated experience that you wouldn’t be able to achieve if you booked on your own. Plus, I do all the work for you, so all you to do is relax and enjoy your experience!
Also, it won’t cost you any more than if you booked it yourself! The idea that booking through a travel advisor will cost you more is a huge misconception. Any commission I receive is paid by the vendor, and the rates that I am able to offer you are at least as good – if not better – than the rates you would be able to find on your own. Depending on the length and complexity of your trip there may be small planning fee, but you would always be informed of any fees prior to deciding to work with me, and if all you want is to get hooked up at a great hotel, there’s no fee. Once I learned this, I was kicking myself for not working with a travel advisor for all of my past travel!

With this new endeavor, this is likely the end of Spillerena. I’m sure that’s not surprising. It’s been dying a slow death for awhile now. However, I will be blogging at least a couple of times a month over at Serena McClain Travel, so I’d love for you to follow along over there. While it will certainly be more travel focused, I’ll still be sharing and writing about the adventures that me and my crazy family find ourselves in. Just sign up at the bottom of the page and you’ll be alerted anytime I post.
If you read this far, THANK YOU! I know the holiday season is crazy, but before you know it 2017 will be here, and I’d love to help you with any trip you might have in the pipeline. Whatever you are planning, no matter how big or small, I’d love to work with you.
