Why choose Dandelion Travels?

We’ll just come right out and say it. We’re a bit obsessive here at Dandelion Travels. We’ll spend hours finding you the best pricing and amenities for whatever travel plans you desire. We’re not like the big guys – the online travel agencies flashing daily specials at you. We want to build a detailed, custom experience for you, and immerse you in the culture of your destination.

 Planning a trip is time consuming and options can be overwhelming. New data suggest the average traveler will spend nearly 23 hours planning a trip, visiting a whopping 140 websites in the 6 weeks prior to traveling! Please, just allow us to do the leg work for you.

In addition to significant time savings, Dandelion Travels will provide you with personalized customer service, exclusive supplier benefits not available to the public, and the peace of mind that someone is looking out for you throughout your trip!  Things the “big guys” won’t do.  Plus, we kinda just wanna live vicariously through your travels!


Research Fee
(trips up to 14 days; for longer trips, >$250 negotiated)

Why do we charge a research fee? We want to eliminate those who are “just shopping” so we may spend quality time with you. If you would love Dandelion Travels to plan your trip, the research fee is due following the complimentary consultation, prior to any trip research.

Your trip is a significant financial investment.  Life happens and we want to make sure your trip happens, as smoothly as possible.  We prefer Allianz Global Assistance and its trip protection services.  We’ll include a quote for travel insurance in your invoice.
