Do you want Magic Minus the Mayhem?
Meredith McCutcheon can help you. The Rochester travel agent opened a business specializing in Disney and family vacations.
McCutcheon recently submitted information about the business through the Small Business Spotlight.
Here are her answers.
What does your business offer?
My specialty is family vacations. While I have extensive training in a wide variety of family-friendly destinations, most people know me for my Disney expertise. That being said, I do offer booking services to destinations across the globe for all demographics. Whether you're looking for a family trip to Disney World, an Alaskan cruise, or a romantic getaway...I can design a personalized vacation that fits your needs.
What's your most popular product or service?
Disney World vacations. In addition to booking services, I offer more detailed Disney planning services. These include personalized itineraries and daily touring plans designed to keep my clients "ahead of the crowds."
What's a fact about your business that most customers probably don't know?
Travel professionals get paid commission by suppliers--not from clients! My clients do not pay a single penny for my booking services. In addition, as an independent contractor with a larger host agency, I have access to some of the best travel discounts in the industry.
When was the business founded?
How did your business come to be?
Several years ago, I devoted countless hours to planning our first family vacation to Disney World. It was a huge success. Sadly, though, I struck up a conversation with a woman whose trip was not going smoothly at all. She felt like her family had wasted time and money on a trip that was falling apart due to a lack of planning. It was at that moment that I decided to become a travel professional and help other families make the most of their vacations.
Why did you choose the area you did?
Some of the best childhood memories that I have are from our family vacations, and I've always loved helping my friends plan memorable trips. I feel very fortunate that I have been able to turn this passion into a career.
