What is a Travel Designer?

Travel designers are destination experts who specialize in vacation planning. A good travel designer will understand what you want from your vacation, adding value throughout the planning and execution. When you consult with a travel designer, you’re eliminating guesswork, frustration, and wasted time. You’re gaining expertise, confidence, and value.

The best travel designers will anticipate your questions, explore options through one-to-one conversations, and recommend a customized, private travel plan, especially for you.

Once your plan is tailored, your travel designer will secure your reservations and make all the arrangements you desire.

At LANDED, you’ll consult with true travel designers—trusted advisors who know the territory. The LANDED experience is worlds away from what you’ll find at those off-the-shelf, call-center / catalog travel firms.
