We deliver just that, and nothing less. What goes into crafting your next perfect vacation? Here’s what you can expect on your AwayBug escape:

Seamless Travel

Instead of having to keep tabs with a dozen different companies—your airline, hotel, cruise, airport transfer, tours, and on (and on)—you have a single point of contact for your entire trip: us. We make planning your vacation a hands-off affair for you, coordinating every last detail on your behalf. Then, when you take off, you’ll see how seamlessly each piece fits together, for a vacation that unfolds with ultimate ease.

Scintillating Experiences

An incredible guide—the kind who can show you the side of your destination most other tourists miss—can make or break a trip. Luckily, we know the best of the best! We’ve cultivated relationships with top on-the-ground private guides and experts for the past 10 years to ensure you’re able to immerse yourself in the unique culture and landscape you visit, on excursions that enliven every sense.

Spectacular Service

When you travel on your AwayBug itinerary, you’ll never be treated as just another number. Our agency is affiliated with Virtuoso, the world’s leading consortia of luxury travel companies. What does that mean for you? That you get to take advantage of our elite, exclusive connections, meaning more perks, upgrades, amenities, and even invite-only events and receptions.

How We Plan It

Our signature 4-step process for designing unforgettable escapes


Let’s first connect on a complimentary consultation call! On the call, we’ll learn more about the kind of escape you’ve been yearning for, so we can craft a completely one-of-a-kind itinerary, just for you. You can get all your questions answered by us as well, so you feel confident about your decision to trust your vacation to us. 


Now the fun part: bringing your vacation vision to life, with all the special AwayBug touches thrown in. Once you square away your agreement and planning fee (we’ll share this with you on our call, as it varies depending on the type of trip you’re looking for), we’ll begin researching and crafting your custom itinerary, sending you several initial options.

It All

Once we finalize your itinerary, you can go ahead and relax as our team arranges everything for you. From flights and hotel/cruise cabins to tours, transfers, shows, and even dining reservations, we’ll weave together a seamless itinerary for you, from beginning to end. We’ll keep you informed of deposit deadlines and any necessary forms needed to travel, as well.


You’ll depart for your vacation, armed with all the documents and details you need neatly arranged, for easy access while you travel. And don’t forget: you’re not really traveling alone! Reach out to the AwayBug team if you need any assistance while on your journey. We’ll also connect with you when you return to make sure your trip exceed every last expectation.
