FAMILY GETAWAYS… Exploring the World – Together! Traveling around the world with parents, siblings, kids, grandkids, and assorted family members can be an enriching assortment of shared experiences. Not without its challenges, multi-generational travel is a great goal for families who “seek togetherness in faraway places.” And, multi-generational family travel continues to be one of the top travel trends as families – whose members are geographically separated – often find multi-generational trips a perfect opportunity to “reconnect.” Together,your AMT American Express Travel Insiders will work with you to tailor itineraries and activities to the interests – as well as the constraints – of each member of your family traveling together. Popular options include cruises, safaris, and stays in all-inclusive resorts – in addition to family-oriented active travel – such as cycling, hiking and walking vacations. Whether you and your family seek fun and adventure on the high seas, a great vacation at a Caribbean or Mexico resort, an active cycling itinerary at home or abroad, a river cruise with the whole family along one of Europe’s famous waterways, or an African safari… the choice is yours! And we can get you there. Save Save Save

YOUR JOURNEY BEGINS HERE… With Us! Your AMT Travel Insiders.

As we begin another new year and begin thinking about our next journey – and where we want to go, how we want to get “there” and what we want to accomplish… let’s take just a few minutes and ask ourselves WHY do we want to travel? Travel opens our eyes. If we’re open and willing, travel “will make us an incredibly more well-rounded human being.” Travel helps us learn who we are. With all the challenges and opportunities travel lays at our feet – we quickly learn who we are in a way that’s only possible “on the road.” Travel creates meaningful relationships. Yes. People we meet while traveling may become some of the most valued names on our contact list. Traveling develops skills we didn’t know we had. Sometimes we have to get far away from home to realize we have skills we have never used. And travel can bring out the best in us…Travel is education. Seeing the world provides us an education that’s “absolutely impossible to get in school.” Travel teaches us economics, politics, history, geography, and sociology in an “intense, hands-on way that no class will.” And last, but certainly not least… Travel proves that dreams do come true! And we can make it happen for you! Look forward to all the joy, adventure, relaxation, learning, and memories made possible by travel. Yes, indeed… YOUR JOURNEY BEGINS HERE… with us! And as always… where ever in the world you want to go… we can get you there! Save Save


  cover-pic2   A family vacation can be a wonderful, happy, memory-filled, adventurous and an exciting time for the entire family. We think you’ll agree: combining “adventure” and “education” with “family” is a perfect way to bond or “bridge the gap” between generations, personalities, interests and ages. Vacations are good for mind, body and spirit. No one can deny that bonds, connections and memories – formed during one’s family vacation – make for traditions and stories that will last for generations. Quality family time…it’s priceless! Your AMT American Express Travel Insiders are here to help you plan something fun and adventurous. We’re here to help you explore and experience a new destination where you can try something new (from cave tubing to windsurfing) to learning something new – whether it be taking culinary classes or studying ocean marine life. Quite simply – we’re here to help you plan a family vacation – on land or at sea – where everyone in your family has the priceless opportunity to be together and to make life-time memories together. And as always…wherever you want to go – we can get you there! Give us a call today.
