Travel like a local not a tourist. Get insider access to unique events, offbeat excursions, and unconventional itineraries. And if you're an American Express Card Member, you can enjoy valuable offers, travel programs, and other benefits when you book with one of our Travel Insiders.
Choose your travel InsiderBrowse our roster of expert Insiders and choose your perfect match. You can even choose an Insider who shares the same interests as you.
Tell us about your dream getawayYour travel dreams do not come on a checklist. They come to life through a one-on-one conversation with a Travel Insider. Your conversation will then give our Insider a sense of your unique travel expectations and desires. You will learn how the program works and which planning fees may apply. Then, with your approval, our Insiders will roll up their sleeves and begin designing your one-of-a-kind trip.
Approve your itineraryIt is your vacation to enjoy and you have the final say in everything. Your Travel Insider will send your proposed itinerary directly to you. Review it, make changes and if it satisfies and impresses you, you can be on your way. If not, our Insider will work with you to fine-tune the details to perfection.
Our vacations are made to be remembered for a lifetime. To achieve this requires years of experience in travel planning. And that is why being an American Express Travel Insider is a distinction reserved for only a select few.
To qualify, we require all our Insiders to become fully immersed in the local knowledge of their area of specialization. This is not information you will find by browsing the web or skimming travel books. Our Insiders must feast on the customs of the area, in addition to regularly visiting and actively planning trips. This keeps them up with the latest on all fronts. From relaxing accommodations and thrilling adventures to trendy restaurants and classic museums and everything between, our Insiders have you covered.

“Southern France was my home for three years; I speak the language and have wholeheartedly embraced the French way of life. Time seems to move slower here, meals are about togetherness more than just sustenance, and people take their vacations very seriously. With my Insider tips, you too will discover joy in the little things: like sampling the perfect bouillabaisse-which purists claim can only be made with Mediterranean seafood-at a quaint, sea-side restaurant where mentioning my name results in a welcome cocktail. Need to de-stress? Do as the French do and "take the waters" at the extraordinary spas I'll recommend. Thinking about attending the Monaco Grand Prix? I'll book you fabulous accommodations and find terrific vantage points for race viewing. From a palace hotel to a country inn in the Alps, you can trust my suggestions because they're based on personal experience. Don't wait a minute longer-contact me today for an authentic slice of the Joie de Vivre.”Read more

“I love everything about Germany! Living there for three years has given me insight into the culture and the people that other agents don't have. The Mosel Wine region is one of my favorite locales; let me share with you the exciting experience of tasting new wines as they debut. Don't miss grabbing lunch at one of the best spots in Bernkastle, where you can dine overlooking the river, on fish that was swimming there only moments before. Much like the Germans themselves, I am meticulously organized, ensuring that you won't have to worry about a single detail of your itinerary. I've been in the industry for over 30 years; as a former agency owner, I hold myself to the highest standard of customer service. I'll recommend the best spots to dine-surprisingly, small local hotels often offer the most authentic and delicious cuisine-and I'll insist that you try the locally crafted beer and wine. Only an insider can show you the true spirit of this great nation; contact me today to start planning.”Read more

“I have traveled extensively throughout 20 European countries and lived in Italy for almost four years. My European travel experience began during high school when I attended classes in Paris, France and traveled throughout Normandy, Brittany, and the Loire Valley. During my junior year of college, I studied in both Florence and London. The European travel seed had been planted, and after college I lived for some time in Venice, Vernazza (Cinque Terre) and Florence, Italy. During that time of living in Europe I had many wonderful opportunities to travel and learn about the great countries that make up this continent. I have used this experience to help me in my professional travel life as I plan and coordinate wonderful vacations and adventures for my clients. European travel is very diverse from accommodations such as small country inns, villa rentals to five star hotels and transportation via rail, car rentals, flights and ferries. For the adventurous, I can help you with the best places to hike, bike, ski or sail. Whether you are traveling to one country or five countries, I can help you plan the trip of a life time.”Read more
