WHAT WE BELIEVE
Vacations are a critical component of a healthy lifestyle.
We all need time to relax, reflect, and reconnect with our families, our friends, and ourselves. Vacations are one of the best ways to achieve these important outcomes.
But too often, busy professionals let the everyday hustle get in the way of planning their next getaway. Let’s face it, planning a vacation is a lot of work. Expedia reports that most people spend 23 hours planning each trip. Who has 23 hours of free time? Not many. The net result is that most of us take far fewer breaks than we ought to.
We help people win the battle against vacation procrastination by providing ideas and inspiration, expert advice, cost comparisons, itinerary planning, and booking services—all personalized and customized to each client’s individual interests.
Hi, I'M KRISTEN
Celebrity Cruise Line Five Star Academy
Master of Adventure with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines
Graduate of Disney's College of Knowledge
Universal Orlando Resort Specialist
Orlando Destination Specialist
That’s me during a recent visit to Walt Disney World. My career has been an interesting journey, spanning retail, healthcare, banking, and time as a full time homemaker (i.e., CEO of the Fisher household). When I look back, the biggest consistency is that I thrive on helping people!
Some of my fondest childhood memories are of the vacations we took together as a family. As a result, I’ve always incorporate regular vacationing into my own family’s priorities. I started planning complex, multi-family vacations with extended family and friends in 2002. In 2017, I merged my lifelong passion for vacationing with my drive to help people by going pro as a travel planner. I completed well over one hundred hours of intense industry training under the guidance of an expert agent. After about a year at another agency, I decided to found The Cahaba Travel Co. along with my husband in order to better serve my clients and give them the service they deserve. I'd like nothing more than to help you put together your next vacation!
AND, I'M NATE
That's me and my young padawan defending the Millennium Falcon to the right. Despite the photos , I'm a relatively recent vacation convert. I spent way too long totally enveloped by today's workaholic culture. I'm incredibly proud of Kristen in founding The Cahaba Travel Co. and enjoy assisting with business operations.
I'm also thrilled to be able to share our vacationing experiences, tips and tricks, and to help others escape the spiral of corporate doom.
HOW WE OFFER NO FEE PLANNING SERVICES
We have a no-fee philosophy.
It doesn't cost anything extra to book with us.
Because of the travel industry's commission structure, we don't get paid until after you travel - and only if you book with us. For this reason, we ask that if you engage us for detailed planning assistance, you also use our booking service.
What recent clients say about our travel advisers.
When we book your travel, we're paid a small commission (usually 5-10%) by the hotels, resorts, cruise lines or tour operators that you use. They do this because they want customers that are a good match for the experiences they offer - just as you want vacation experiences that are a good match for your unique interests.
Our commission will not increase the price you pay for your vacation. It's included in the price no matter how you book - with us, on the supplier's website or on a high-volume online booking engine. But those other booking options don't earn the commission by providing excellent service. And, importantly, a lot of time, we can find discounts that aren't released to the public through our industry connections.
