Destination Wedding on the beach.
Travel is my passion and I have been traveling the world for over 30 years. My job is to make your getaway a dream vacation.

The internet is a great place to investigate, but when it comes time to confirm plans for your well deserved getaway, don't rely on information from the web, call me so that I can use my destination knowledge to assist you in choosing the right resort in the right destination, with personalized service. I will be available to you in the planning stage of your getaway, during your getaway and after you've returned home, should you need me.

Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy, Ring of Kerry in Ireland, Chichen Itza in Mexico, Sydney Opera House in Australia and Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica.... all beautiful, unique sites around the world that are definitely in some of my favorite destinations that I have visited.

I have had the privilege to escort groups to many destinations around the world. Whether it's a group of 10 or group of 1000, we love groups of all sizes! Multi-generational vacations, reunions, clubs, incentive groups, just to name a few, are some of the great groups we work with daily.

Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Travel Specialist

I love assisting couples as they plan one of the most special times in their lives – a Destination Wedding. There are so many beautiful beaches and gardens in this world to use as a back drop when saying, “I Do”! After attending several Destination Wedding and Honeymoon training events, I am very confident in making sure every detail is planned out for the Bride and Groom. I often take pictures of wedding sites when I travel to different destinations. My agents and I are also familiar with the requirements of documentation needed for marrying in other countries. Honeymoons are a large segment of our business. Whether it's a Destination Wedding, renewal of vows or a honeymoon, call us so we can assist you in making your lifelong memories.

Travel to Ireland with Jan
After finishing my school year, I jumped into teaching 4 weeks of summer school. Midway through, I decided I needed a vacation. Ireland came to mind as I had wanted to go there since childhood. It was suggested I contact a travel agent who was an "expert" on Ireland.

A web search of "Missouri travel agents specializing in Ireland" turned up a few options with Travel Leaders and after reading the bios of the agents, I decided to call Jan Stanczak. She loves Ireland and had been there numerous times, so that was a great start.

From our first conversation to my departure, it was less than two weeks. Jan is knowledgeable, helpful with suggestions, and booked the perfect trip for my needs. Jan seemed to understand exactly where I was coming from, from the beginning. I will definitely keep Jan's phone number and call her for any future travel adventures and feel confident her professional and pleasant personality would help me make my way on another great adventure.

Very Happy and Satisfied Client
I confess-it had been a long time since I engaged the services of a professional travel agent.

With information so accessible via the internet, it was just as easy to book travel myself. But...when my family and a couple other families decided to take a trip, I reached out to Jan Stanczak. It turned out to be the best travel decision I ever made! From my very first inquiry and throughout the entire process, Jan answered all my questions, offered guidance and was able to secure us upgrades and credits I was unaware were even available. She listened to my concerns and offered insights based on her familiarity with the destination and years in the travel industry. Jan went above and beyond, handling all our reservations, saving us money all while providing incredible vacations.

My family and I truly had a vacation of a lifetime. We have since booked our annual family vacation with Jan. I cannot imagine ever again booking a vacation without the expertise of Jan!

Love our Travel Agent
Jan has been booking my family travel for the last 4 years. I recommend her to all my friends and family. I would never travel without her planning it for us. She knows us and she knows our likes and dislikes. When planning a trip, she's our first call we make!
