You wouldn’t plan your future finances without consulting a professional.

The same logic applies to travel, said cruise and vacation specialist Bitsy Clayton.

“I create trips with customized itineraries the travelers couldn’t create themselves,” she said noting she’s got the international hotel and other contacts to make that happen finding savings wherever possible for clients.

“Travel is not one-size-fits-all,” said the consultant, noting she collaborates with people to help them maximize all their travel values.

“I make sure what they’re getting is what they really want,” she said. “If I can save them $500 or $600 on international air fare — that’s a good day.”

Clayton, who began her travel career in the ‘90s working with Northwest Airlines, joined the travel-planning world in 2003. Her personal travels to Europe, South America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii and Alaska gave her great exposure to the most popular travel destinations.
She routinely books clients with companies like Regent Seven Seas, Crystal, Silverseas, Tauck Tours, Insight Vacations and Brendan Vacations, among others.

Clayton talked about the types of clients and tours that are her forte.

“My typical clients are looking to do a Mediterranean cruise on a luxury cruise line, usually a ship of 1,000 passengers or less,” she said, adding clients usually have an idea of what destinations that want to include on their trip. “I work with them to give them options, create a complex itinerary that matches their desires.”

Clayton is a member of the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce, San Diego Pacific Asia Travel Association and OSSN. She is a certified California Seller of Travel (CTS# 2083299-40) and is an authorized Independent Affiliate of CADENCE, a virtuoso agency.
