From the Desk of Heather Christopher: June Updates

Last month, HCTC celebrated a big birthday! We have officially been in business for THREE YEARS! In honor of this, we made a $500 donation to the Sgt Adam Schoeller Memorial Fund. HCTC would not be possible or where it is today without you so thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me and my team with your vacations! 

Now, a little housekeeping 😉 – 

  1. If you’re considering travel between Thanksgiving and New Years, now is the time to book! Please note, the minimum budget is $8K
  2. I will be out of the office to visit The Breakers Palm Beach from Sunday, June 23rd to Thursday, June 27th. I appreciate your patience during this time! 



Madison, the woman behind Espresso + Cream and a HCTC client, recently shared all about her first experience using a travel professional. I am honored to be the one she selected and you can read more about her experience here

P.S. If you read until the end you’re in for a little treat for your next vacation!

Nothing gets our blood pumping like a new countdown!

Traveling to and entering the UK just got easier! Now US and Canadian passport holders can now use the ePassport gates upon arrival. Previously this was only for UK passport holders only. This will be helpful so you’re spending less time in the airport & more time exploring your respective destination! You can learn more about it through this Travel Agent Central article here
