New year, new services

packing list

As avid travelers, we know that packing is usually the least exciting part of the travel experience. Writing down a list (and then re-writing it because we can’t remember where we put the envelope we were using as paper to write the first one), finding out the local weather, deciding what we need to take and what we need to leave at home, remembering to buy a new adapter because we left one at the resort on our last vacation, finding the right place to buy a great new outfit for a special night out –  we know, packing can be rough. 

So, we started asking ourselves-

Why should the ease of Professionally Planned Travel end when the packing starts?

We don’t think it should.

Introducing customized packing guides from KaliKosmos Travel

Our packing guides make suggestions based on your destination, dates of travel, gender, vacation activities, and the local weather forecast.

With access to products from brands like Anatomie, Kari Traa, Cotopaxi, Patagonia, Tumi, and Tory Burch, our guides also offer the ability to shop while you plan. From hand sanitizers to airplane seat covers, from lounge wear to the perfect dress for a night on the town, these products will have you covered. 

And, our customized packing guides include a check list so you know what you need to buy and what you need to pack. You can even use it when you’re packing to return home (to cut down on those lost adapters!). 

Beginning this year, every Professionally Planned Vacation, Customized Itinerary, and Rental Experience will include a customized packing guide!

For clients who utilize our Professionally Planned Flight Experiences or our Single Reservation Solutions, you can create your own KaliKosmos packing guide here.

And the exciting new services don’t stop there!

Travel in 2020 didn’t happen like most of us thought it would and who’s to say how 2021 will pan out (fingers crossed!). Even if travel isn’t on your calendar just yet, we think you should still have access to the amazing products offered within our packing guides.  The next time you’re in the market for anything from toiletries to clothing or from luggage to ski boots

Our Travel Store is your place to access it all.

And, because KaliKosmos Travel wants all people to enjoy this beautiful world, we’re actively working to add brands like Safe Place Bedding that supply special needs products to our Travel Store. We’re excited to provide access to great products that can assist people with special needs, not only for travel but also for every day life.

Special Needs items from the Travel Store.

At KaliKosmos Travel we believe this is a beautiful world and our commitment is to help you discover it your own unique way.  With our new packing guides and access to our Travel Store, we’re excited to have ways to help you discover it even better.

Welcome to 2020

Welcome to the start of a new year.  The ball has dropped, the page has turned, a new year lies before us, a year full of potential.  A year that is waiting and ready for each of us to make our mark upon it.  The beginning of a new year is a time of reflection, dedication, and anticipation.

At KaliKosmos Travel, we take this moment and reflect on where we’ve been. We reflect on our beginnings, taking a moment to share with you the story of how KaliKosmos Travel came to be. We also reflect on the past 11 years of service we have provided to you; to plan amazing adventures for you, to assist you when the unexpected occurred, and to hear about all of the memories you made when you returned from your trip.  It has been an honor to serve you in this way.  At the beginning of this new year, we also take a moment and reflect on the changes we made in 2019, not only on Julie’s move to leisure-only reservations, but also her new focus and specialization: special needs travel.  And, we reflect on the educational opportunities we had this past year, such as Katie’s completion of the American Express Pay with Points program and her new participation in the Travel Collection by the Travel Leaders Group. Our past has given us an excellent foundation for the year to come, and for that, we are thankful.

With the start of the new year, KaliKosmos Travel, like many others around the world, is making resolutions of dedications for the coming year.  We resolve to remain dedicated to our commitment to our clients.  We remain dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service to all clients, past, present, and future.  And we remain dedicated to showing future clients why they should not only use a travel advisor but, more importantly, why they should choose a KaliKosmos Travel advisor to plan and reserve their next trip.

We know the reason we have continued to have growth year after year is because we have carried through these resolutions of dedication year in and year out.  We know our growth in 2020 will continue because we know these resolutions will continue.

As 2020 begins, we are full of anticipation for the year to come.  We are excited to see more of you and your travels when you post your “Where in the World?” video on our KaliKosmos Travel Facebook page.  We are also excited to roll out improved pre-travel email communications for clients.  In 2020 we are taking steps toward helping you be better prepared for your upcoming adventures.  And we are excited to share more about ourselves and the world of travel through the new KaliKosmos Travel blog. Like our Facebook page and visit our blog to keep up to date on these wonderful enhancements.  It is going to be a fantastic year and we can’t wait to see it all unfold.

Welcome to 2020. We hope the coming year brings with it moments of awe, moments of joy, and moments that will last a lifetime.  We hope this year will provide you with times of reflection, dedication, and anticipation.  We hope the next 12 months will be everything you dream it to be and more.
