I just wanted to thank you for a great experience on our trip to Jamaica.   We had one of the best ocean view rooms at the resort (RIU) Ochos Rios. The staff were very professional and friendly.  The food was great and always served in a timely manner.  The Xtra Airways charter was the best.  We will surely use you when we travel again.

Fantastic Customer Service! We will use 417 travel again! Travis has been a pleasure to work with! – Jennifer S.

I am Pamela Schroeder, Kayla’s mom. Travis has been our travel rep for about 12+ yrs. Does the most amazing job planning all of our trips! best customer service along with reviews and tips on our destinations! So knowledgeable. They create such a personal touch with the client/rep communications. You can email and call a million times lol for ANY questions! Also, they find and know a few tourist folks to use for those excursions you want to take, it depends where you are going and/or tips on what to look for and do! They rock!
I have been booking with them for many years! They always give several options with the pros and cons of each. When I had an issue while in Mexico, they called and had the situation fixed in minutes! They are my go to group when I take my vacations! Thank you for taking such good care of me every single time! Would definitely recommend them if you want a worry free, fabulous and fun vacation!!
Travis and Michelle are wonderful experts in this business! We have had such great experiences with all trips they have set up for us! Thank you both for the consistent communication, professionalism, and knowledge that we can always count on!
Our Travel Team~no stresses, no messes, always impresses!♡
Such a great experience!
I can’t even begin to describe the stress that working with Travis and Our Travel Team has relieved for me! Planning a wedding can be stressful, let alone planning a wedding in another country. I was in way over my head when we decided to seek some help. Travis and his team have been there for me and my fiance and every decision. We were provided tons of options and price ranges for hotels to get married at. He also helped us find the PERFECT spot for our honeymoon, he could always tell if we were “settling” or had reservations about a hotel, and never pushed us into anything. If he thought we had doubts, he simply sent us more options based on our wants. Any time we had issues with the hotel, Travis stepped in and took control and did whatever he could to make us (let’s be honest, mostly me) happy! I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Our Travel Team.
Great experience. Travis has been extremely helpful throughout the entire process. I travel often for work and had some complicated travel requirements and had to make last minute changes to my dates. I extended my hotel stay and of course the resort was sold out. Travis went to bat for us to make sure we would get a comparable room to our original booked room, and not have to switch rooms half way through our stay. He also got us a great room rate. I would recommend them to anyone.
