How It Works
To Get Started, Let’s Chat!
We start by getting to know you and how you travel by starting a conversation with you. Where are you going? How do you want to get there? Do you want to stay in boutique hotels or five star resorts? Are guided tours your preference, or would you rather trailblaze sights on your own?
We partner with hotels and tour groups around the world to help create the perfect travel experiences for our clients, and all of these details help us make sure we plan your ideal vacation. See our partnerships
To get started, give us a call at 619-446-6400.
Stress-Free, Full-Service Planning
Depending on your preferences, your personal travel advisor will put together a detailed travel itinerary for you to review. These customized itineraries will include everything you need for the perfect vacation: lodging options, transportation, attractions, guided tour bookings, destination-specific tips, and pricing. If everything looks perfect, we’ll start booking!
HEAR FROM OUR HAPPY TRAVELERS
Thank you for helping us make incredible memories
“I can’t say enough great things about Avant-Garde Travel. I, my husband, his two brothers and their wives went to Italy for the first time and we booked our vacation with Avant-Garde Travel. This was one of the best planned and prepared vacations we have ever been on. Every detail of the travel was handled by Avant-Garde Travel and we could not be more happy. There is only one word to describe our experience with Avant-Garde Travel – “Perfection.””

The most unforgettable trip I've ever had
“Aimee and Minerva at Avant-Garde Travel are truly amazing partners to have while planning any major trip. Aimee and Minnie helped my husband and I plan our dream wedding on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. It was the most unforgettable trip I’ve ever had. Aimee and Minnie found the MOST. AMAZING. VILLA. EVER. Aimee and Minnie went above and beyond our wildest expectations for this trip and we couldn’t be more grateful for their contribution to our big day! We would recommend Avant-Garde to anyone looking to take an awesome trip!”

I wish she could plan my day to day life
“Aimee is UHMAZING!! We got married on a cruise ship and she made me a cute flyer to send to family and friends to get them to go. She blocked rooms off for our guests. She took care of our flight to FL, hotels, transportation to the docks and everything associated with the cruise. She even saved our butts when we forgot to print luggage tickets and resent them for us. We are using her for every trip we take. I wish she could plan my day to day life.”

A trusted partner to brainstorm honeymoon ideas
“From the very first interaction to the day of departure they were on-point, organized, and an extension of our trip. We wanted a trusted partner to brainstorm honeymoon ideas based off of our needs and they provided multiple options for us to review. There were many personal touch-points prior to departure to made sure we had what we needed, and any last-minute requests were addressed. The trip itself exceeded our expectations and we have already reached out to the Avant-Gerde Travel team with two more trips. Thank you for everything!!!”

Above and beyond what we would have found ourself!
“Aimee and staff put together an amazing wedding trip to Italy. The wedding venue was PERFECT and the wedding itself was like a fairytail. All of the trip info/tickets/direction all at your fingertips. We received timely responses to our e-mails or messages. The accomodations she provided were above and beyond what we would have found ourself. You made it so very, very personal and special, Just cannot thank Aimee and team enough.”
