First off, I loved that when I contacted Laura to ask her about helping me book a cruise for myself and a group of friends there was absolutely no pressure to BUY NOW, which was really nice! She is great to work with and is patient, despite having multiple people to deal with, varying forms of payment etc. She is handling all the coordination with the cruise line regarding dinner time and sitting at the same tables. It's really nice that I don't have to do this! I would absolutely use her again and recommend her if you want headache free travel!

I can't wait to plan our next trips with you! My husband and I just returned from wonderful but complicated trip. We had our neice's Bat Mitzvah to attend in St. Thomas, and then wanted a getaway for our anniversary. I didn't know that I would be able to attend the Bat Mitzvah originally, so my husband's trip was already booked, and I had to be added on. I don't know how she got the first class tickets that she did at the prices she did, but we flew in style. But then.... Sigh of joy... we went to St. Maarten, We stayed at an incredible boutique hotel on the French side of this Island. Laura got us a beautiful upgrade to a beachfront ground floor (there are only 2 stories to the suites) suite, breakfast included everyday, and it just went on. It was exactly what we had asked for! Now we are having Roaming Holidays Travel help us with our many travels and I feel like we have a great partner in simplifying and helping us make the best choices for our trips!!!

If you are looking for a travel agent who plans your trips as if she were traveling herself, you've found her. Laura has arranged my travel and accommodations for a number of business and personal trips and has a knack for understanding her clients' needs during all phases of the process. Traveling to unfamiliar places can be overwhelming, but when you are supported by a travel agent who puts in the extra effort to ensure comfortable and predictable logistics, you are truly free to enjoy the journey. For me, that's what travel is all about. Laura's experiences as a traveler, passion for exploration, and discerning quality standards shine through in her recommendations. You will not be disappointed.

I have worked with Laura at Roaming travel for a couple of trips now and it has been such a pleasure. She has a wealth of recommendations and information on a variety of locations. For our most recent booking with her we will be traveling to a country that we have not yet been to. She has provided my wife and I with lots of information and taken the apprehension out of a totally foreign destination. Taking care of details that would normally be forgotten makes vacations that much more enjoyable. In this age of book online and cross your fingers I have learned the true value of a travel agent. I look forward to working with Roaming Travel for all my business and pleasure trips in the future.

Roaming Holidays travel agency and Laura are fantastic. She has helped my family plan several trips and always knows how to guide us. Her expertise is greatly appreciated and I know when we use her, our trip will be perfect!

If you are looking to plan your next vacation, excursion, getaway or honeymoon, you have come to the right place! Laura Gilbard helped my wife and I plan our beautiful honeymoon to Bora Bora. Laura is wonderful to work with and our honeymoon would not have been as special if it was not for Laura. Before planning our honeymoon, Laura took the time to get to know us and ask us what we wanted to do and the vibe we wanted for our honeymoon. After listening to us, Laura offered as several amazing honeymoon locations and hotels. Ultimately we chose Bora Bora, but only did so based on the amazing deal and package that Laura was able to arrange for us. Laura is not your typical travel agent, in a good way. She genuinely wants your trip to be magical and cares about your needs/desires for your trip rather than pushing certain packages like other travel agents I have worked with in the past. Our honeymoon was incredible and it would not have been so without Laura.

I have had Roaming Holidays handle my travel for years and have been very happy with their level of service and attention to detail. Recently, I had them book a trip for my wife and I to Hawaii. Being on the East Coast and not being too familiar with the islands, I let them handle everything. I could not have been happier. The hotels they selected and the excursion ideas were top notch! I feel like their knowledge of the region enabled us to get so much more for our money.

Craig J.

I have used Roaming Holidays several times - for cruises and most recently in planning a very complex trip to Ireland and Scotland. The service was fantastic and I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend this Travel Agency.
