‘Tis the Season for Magical Moments Shared

2019 12 Holidaycrmheader Seasonsgreetings

During the Christmas season, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the exchanging of presents and hustle-and-bustle of a filled December calendar. But this Christmas, pay special attention to the love that fills the room during the quiet moments. Delight in the smiles of the family and friends that surround you and take time to be grateful. Enjoy the first few magical sips of a hot cup of cocoa brimming with marshmallows. Sneak a sugar cookie just out of the oven. Revel in the excitement of children greeting Santa Claus. The true enchantment of Christmas is in the unspoken bonds, special memories, and traditions shared with loved ones. These are the little moments that we cherish the most.

Holiday travel experiences have their own unique magic. Sip a margarita as Christmas carols float along a Caribbean breeze. Stroll the Christmas market while nibbling on cinnamon-sugary trdelnik in Old Town Square, Prague. Gaze in wonder upon a festive Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London. Attend a memorable nativity play at St. Peter’s Church in Vienna. Don your holiday finest and enjoy a luxurious dinner and dancing on board a ship traversing the Mediterranean.

In the spirit of Christmas, the agents at Encompass the World Travel and Westlake Travel offer warm holiday wishes to our clients. If you are preparing to travel during Christmas and New Year’s, we invite you to read some of our tips for smooth holiday travel.

You truly are our greatest gift and we are so blessed to be part of your lives. 

Merry Christmas from our homes to yours!

Black Friday Savings with Encompass the World Travel

Unnamed 1

The teams at Encompass the World Travel and Westlake Travel are excited to share the joys and blessings of the autumn season with you.

This week concludes with two special holidays that our team loves celebrating with our friends and family: Thanksgiving warms our hearts and the hustle-and-bustle of Black Friday energizes us. As the gift-giving festivities begin this season, we appreciate you keeping our small business in mind.

Today, and everyday, we are thankful for you. This year, we especially hold gratitude in our hearts because you have continued to follow our exciting journey as we moved offices, added team members, and continued to explore new destinations to share with you.

Black Friday electrifies our excitement for travel as some of our top partners have the best savings of the year available now! We invite you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for a sampling of the promotions that will be available for Black Friday and into Cyber Monday. If you’re looking to make travel arrangements, contact us at our Brunswick or Westlake locations and we can share additional specials with you.

As we reflect on the many blessings of 2019 and look forward to all that’s coming in 2020, our hearts are so thankful.

From our family to yours, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving holiday and a fun-filled Black Friday.

Our valued clients:

Thank you for your loyalty to our business. When you choose to make your trip arrangements through Encompass the World Travel, it means everything. We are honored to continue to serve you as we have for over 33 years.

We’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of you as ambitious couples looking to set forth on your first Caribbean adventure together. Now, as your families have grown, you’ve created memories of journeying to numerous Caribbean islands by air and sea. Or maybe we met you as experienced travelers checking items off your bucket list, looking for exotic destinations like Asia or South America. Now, with our help, you’ve collected passport stamps for a dozen countries.

The relationships we share with you make our world go round, literally. The bond that we have built to guide you through life’s milestones in the form of travel experiences is why we love our careers.  

Our travel partners:

We cannot thank you enough for providing the ultimate travel services and accommodations. When our clients arrange a travel consultation with us and describe their dream vacation, we can craft that adventure because of you. Thinking back to the days when we wrote handwritten air tickets…wow, we have come a long way. This industry is evolving daily, becoming more innovative and more technical, and we couldn’t keep up without your support, encouragement, and continued education.

Announcement: Pleasant Valley Travel Joins Encompass the World

Pleasant Valley Travel has faithfully served northeast Ohio for over 30 years and we are pleased to announce that they are now a part of Encompass the World Travel, operating out of our Brunswick office.

Together, we mourn the loss of Renee Boblick, who operated Pleasant Valley Travel for years after her parents’ semi-retirement. With the sudden changes that have happened, Pleasant Valley Travel wants to ensure the continued operation of business with clients is the top priority.

Nichola Hidey, of Pleasant Valley Travel, is officially all settled in with the Encompass the World team.

Nichola says, “One of the great transition benefits is that there’s a whole team of travel advisors here to take care of our clients.”

We are genuinely passionate and knowledgeable about travel. Our agents collaborate and work together to find the perfect trip for all of our clients. The entire team has traveled extensively, so they’re able to give firsthand guidance and expertise. No matter where you’re heading, one of our agents has most likely been there.

Our clients that have had a chance to visit our office have loved the new environment. And the agents love meeting them, too!

“Having fresh faces and developing relationships with Pleasant Valley Travel clients has been absolutely fantastic,” Bill Coyle, agency manager, explains. “They seem to really enjoy the new location and the combination of the teams overall.”

Our newly combined team invites you to an Open House where you’ll meet all the members of our team. The agents will share their experiences, passion, and commitment to our clients. Learn about how beneficial it is to work with our travel expert team to plan your next trip. Enjoy refreshments, networking, and receive a booking voucher* to redeem on your next trip!
