Planning Process

Each traveler is unique, and so are your planning needs. As a Lake Shore Travel client, your needs and goals will always be at the center of our partnership. Our travel planning process is governed by a philosophy of collaboration—one that starts with you and adds our unrivaled expertise and network of luxury travel partners. The results speak for themselves –extraordinary custom travel experiences, designed by our travel advisors, specifically for you.

We start with a conversation. We want to understand what’s important to you, both in practical matters and in what’s closest to your heart. You may want to take a cooking class or a private tour, or you may not want to leave the resort pool. Perhaps you’d like to use travel as education for your kids; plan an unforgettable anniversary trip; or celebrate a milestone birthday with friends and family.

Next, we put our relationships to work. We’ll help you think creatively about where to go and what to do. We know of new places to explore and new ways to experience places you’ve already visited. Together we’ll brainstorm a tailor-made itinerary that best fits your particular needs. Then we’ll connect with our elite worldwide partners to build the perfect experience, secure the best rates, and protect your investment. We aren’t satisfied until you’re satisfied that every element of your trip is perfect.

You embark with confidence, knowing we’re behind the scenes. As you depart, ready to relax and enjoy, your travel advisor is with you every step of the way, monitoring travel conditions and communicating with our on-the-ground partners to make sure everything operates smoothly. If something does come up, we’re available 24/7 to assist. This includes making sure you’re covered in the event of delays, cancellations or last-minute emergencies.

Welcome home! Once you’ve returned from your trip and settled into your daily routines, we’ll invite you to share your experiences. We want to discover what you loved most about your trip and your ideas for improving future travel experiences.
