About The Splendid Traveler

Hello! I’m Alicia.

The Splendid Traveler was created with the drive of adventure and inspiring others to see the world. I am passionate about creating unique, personalized travel experiences you wouldn’t have known were possible by booking on your own. I love helping clients embark on travels that enrich their lives.

After working in marketing for while, I saved up enough to quit and travel for nine months by myself. During my travels I visited Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Fiji, and Hawaii. When I got back to Austin I really didn’t want to go back to cubicle life, and I wanted to use my recent travels to inspire others. I’ve always dreamt of becoming a travel advisor, and after returning from my travels, this was the perfect opportunity.

I am fortunate to have a world of resources at my fingertips, thanks in large part to my partnership with Virtuoso, an organization of the top travel agencies, travel providers, and destinations worldwide. Through Virtuoso, I am able to offer my clients exclusive amenities, upgrades, access, and experiences. The depth of service I offer go well beyond the status quo. Once I understand your individual interests and preferences, I put my industry knowledge and global Virtuoso connections to work. Wherever you want to go, whatever you want to do, it can be arrange — down to the tiniest details.

I specialize in Australia and New Zealand travels and honeymoons, destinations I know very well and love, but I frequently plan domestic travels, Japan, Tahiti, Fiji, Mexico, Caribbean, Peru, India, and Europe.

I enjoy getting to know my clients and figuring out how they can have the best travel experiences possible. Let’s work together to create the perfect vacation for YOU!

I live in Austin, Texas, and I primarily work by phone & email, so you can be anywhere in the world, but if you’re in Austin, let’s meet for coffee!
