Travel Tools – Valerie Galanou

What do I do ?

With almost 30 years travel industry experience I am here to help you plan your perfect trip and navigate you through the requirements to travel.

Using my expertise, knowledge and industry connections I will take care of every aspect of your trip to ensure that everything goes as planned, and be there to support you should anything unexpected arise.

How does it work ?

The first step is to arrange a 15 minute obligation free telephone appointment.  This will allow us to get to know a little about each other to ensure that I am the best Personal Travel Manager for your requirements.

Once we’ve established that we are the right fit for each other I will then ask you to complete a client profile form for each traveler and ask that you pay your travel management fee.  We will then arrange a full consultation to start planning your perfect trip.

What is a Booking Management Fee?

A Booking Management Fee covers ongoing management and supervision of your entire travel arrangements, from consultation, research & booking progression, collation electronic delivery of travel documents and ongoing support whilst you are travelling as required.  The fee is commensurate with my time, expertise, knowledge, and personalised professional service.  The initial portion of $100 is payable at the time of our initial consultation and allows me to create a dedicated 2-hour block in my calendar to begin research & planning of your upcoming travel. The balance is required if further research is required and your booking has not yet been initiated.

If you decide not to proceed with your booking and/or travel arrangements are cancelled for any reason, this payment/fee is non-refundable.

Client Profile Form

When you are ready to commit to working with me, I will ask you to fill out this form for each passenger. This will create your profile in my back-office system. Fill out my client profile form.

Service Fees

You can see an overview of my service fees on this page.

Travel Insurance Waiver Form

This form confirms that you have been advised about the importance of travel insurance and do not wish to proceed with a policy through TravelManagers, understanding the risks. It also confirms you understand that fees apply if TravelManagers is requested to supply information, paperwork and/or invoices to your chosen Insurance provider. Fill out the form here.

Pre-Departure Travel Checklist
