I thought I had a great travel advisor…..and then I met Helen Reid! Working with Helen has totally transformed our entire travel experience, from the first what if down to the final details.  No matter where in the world we are headed, Helen has a connection and a relationship with someone special. I thought I was getting great extras through loyalty programs, but Helen not only finds us more upgrades, but breakfast, spa credits, late checkouts, and more. Travel has never been more fun. We cannot imagine traveling without Helen Reid!

I have been a secretary/administrative assistance/executive assistant for over 30 years and have worked with a multitude of travel agents, many of them exceptional. Kelly Daoud is skilled at the nuts and bolts of business travel-he can whip out a complicated international itinerary in a flash and he knows our corportate atravel policy better than I do-but where he really excels is in his level of caring about his clients.

I am delighted to recommend Kelly Daoud. He is the true "Travel Guru." Kelly has been handling all of my travel for 11 years. He has taken such good care of me that I can't imagine attempting to travel without him. On most days I am traveling I am usually in a hurry and I need my travel to come off smoothly without complications. That may be expecting a lot but Kelly manages to deliver. When there is a problem, Kelly is always availble to me, around the clock and he is on it immediatly. He is so knowledgeable and well-connected that he can usually find a solution to the most vexing travel problems.  Even if I had the time to book my own travel(which I don't!), Kelly gets me upgrades, perks and makes recommendations I could never find for myself. Kelly makes my daily life flow better and that is worth more to me than I can say.

I was just contacted by IUHPFL. I guess they will be working with minors and are considering Student Flights for the group.

I can’t say enough about how much you all have helped me at both of the schools that I have worked with. I just hope I did justice to all the great work you all do.

Amy Tan has been an outstanding travel agent for our programs abroad.  Each year she helps us organize the program, and pays close attention to all the details.  She has also helped us to find consistently the best flights and airfares.  Finally, Amy has lots of patience in dealing with students and their parents.  I recommend her enthusiastically.”

I have worked with Amy for about 4+ years now. They are one of my preferred providers for air. Responsive service, great knowledge of group airfare, always competitive bids, reasonable terms and conditions for group contracts, simple but effective communication, easy invoice and payment process. I would wholeheartedly recommend Student Flights!

My background is in group air (with a private company) and so I have a solid understanding of what's involved, and I know that Amy is highly skilled as a group air agent and very focused on providing excellent customer service.
