Gino's Travel Agency
WE TURN DREAMS INTO REALITY
Terry L. Branch| Owner, CTA, ACC
I am proud to announce I am a Certified Travel Associate (CTA®). I have earned this prestigious designation from The Travel Institute after completing a rigorous certification program, demonstrating essential industry knowledge and experience, and exemplifying the highest standards of professionalism.
As an experienced Travel Associate with over 20 years of experience with a demonstrated history of working in the leisure, travel & tourism industry, I bring knowledge, professionalism, ethics, and a proven record of integrity, treating every client with respect and providing impeccable service. Referrals and loyal clients are the best compliments a travel professional can have. I must be doing something right.
I have 20+ years of experience in the cruise and hospitality industry, including 10+ years as a government meeting planner in the federal sector. I hold many business development and destination certifications, including Belize, Hawaii, The Bahamas, Jamaica, The Middle East (Abu-Dhabi, Dubai, and Qatar), Las Vegas, and New Orleans. Cruise Line certification includes Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian (with a certificate in the Autism-Friendly Certification Program), Regent Seven Seas, and Oceania Cruises.
I also hold certification under the Conde' Nast Traveler Institute Cruise Specialist Program and the Travel University for Africa.
Gino's Travel Agency hosts group vacations
I am very passionate about the travel business. It's a fantastic way to see the world, plus I get to live vicariously through my clients by hearing about their adventures. I sell dreams! Everyone dreams about going and doing something unique on their vacation - and my goal is to make that happen. It's also gratifying when clients come home and thank me and tell me how great it was.
Being a Travel Associate is the best business in the world, but it's more than just booking reservations. It takes energy, a lot of time, and continued education. I work seven days a week, at all hours, doing administrative work, marketing, researching, planning amazing vacations, and working on my next travel certification to stay on top of my game. I get to travel to research cruise ships or to visit all-inclusive resorts or new destinations so that I can provide my unique experiences to share with my clients.
I love what I do, making people happy and planning amazing vacations for them, so this is not "work". Going the extra mile to provide the service my clients deserve and expect is a no-brainer. When you allow Gino's Travel Agency to help you plan your unforgettable vacation, you get the best of the best in a Travel Associate like me.
