“Angie created the perfect custom DREAM vacation for us to England!! Seeing England by rail was amazing!! All hotels were lovely and centrally located; we were able to walk to shops, restaurants and attractions. She arranged a private walking tour for us in London, with a wonderful and extremely personable local guide, and theater tickets, which helped us make the most of our time there. She also arranged two small group tours from Bath to some incredible, quaint villages in the countryside. Also, we traveled to Stratford-Upon-Avon and Liverpool. We’d highly recommend all of the cities and towns we visited. Angie provided us with a day-to-day, detailed itinerary of our trip, several maps, and great restaurants and possible sightseeing, based on our interests. We’d highly recommend her for all of your travel and vacation planning! Thank you, Angie!”Phil & Barb B. / England
“Angie is very quick to respond and very detailed in all the plans. We got a full packet of information that included everything that was happening on the trip. Would highly recommend!”Bryan S. / Costa Rica
“Angie planned a perfect honeymoon trip for my husband and I. It was my first time out of the country, and it was a great experience thanks to Angie. We visited Costa Rica and didn’t even have to think about the trip until we got in the car when we left the wedding because Angie had laid out all the details for us, she booked us fabulous flights, a shuttle to and from the airport, and an amazing all-inclusive resort.”Brooke S. / Costa Rica
“Angie was great!!! My wife and I traveled to Mexico with a large group and it was seamless. We had all pertinent information and travel tips to go by which paid off big time. It was as close to a stress free vacation anyone could ask for. We will definitely use in the future. Thanks Angie!!”Tim M. / Mexico
“We used Away Bug Travel for our family trip this summer. Angie gave us several different resorts to consider and we made our choice from them. It was a difficult choice since each of them were exactly what we were looking for. She made all arrangements and everything was meticulously done. Our week in Jamaica was the most stress-free trip and we loved every minute! Can’t wait to use Away Bug Travel again.”Nikki R. / Jamaica
“Angie – I don’t believe I thanked you enough. Your planning was spectacular. It was a perfect trip – everything went like clock work with no worries. Every driver & tour guide had stories – shared their experiences and gave us a good feeling about the African people. Every resort was 1st class and all a bit different. I felt like a queen – hot towels & drinks on arrival and personal tours of the room. The tours were beyond fantastic. It was such a trip of variety – adventures – great food – views – activities and all because you knew your clients and what they would like – a skill. The booklet you put together was our BIBLE and took all the stress of the unexpected out of this voyage – Fred loved that. So Angie, can’t say enough about your professionalism and hard work. I sing your praises to everyone who travels. Maybe next year – South America!”Janice & Fred A. / South Africa
“Our trip to London, Paris, and Venice on the Orient Express was perfect due to the wonderful locations and beautiful train of course, but also due to the planning of Angie Fanning, AwayBug!Fran & Carol D. / Europe
We were a bit overwhelmed with all the planning necessary to make flight and train reservations, transfers, hotel bookings, dinner reservations, tour guides until Ms. Fanning took over. Angie’s planning was flawless! We had 7 transfers and each and every time the driver was right there. Angie secured tour guides for us in Paris and Venice who were knowledgeable and professional. Her restaurant recommendations were outstanding. We simply can’t say enough.
Our wonderful trip was even more special thanks to Angie Fanning.”
“I am so glad I contacted AwayBug Travel to plan our honeymoon in Panama. I typically like to plan trips myself but with all the stress of the wedding I was happy to pass of the responsibility. Angie blew me away, we told her a little about what we would like to do and she took that and totally knocked it out of the park. We have never been to Panama so it was great that she was able to reach out to her local contacts there who could suggest places to stay and things to do, etc. We absolutely loved the hotels she picked, they were incredible. Everything also went so smoothly, our packet contained all the information we needed so we were able to relax and enjoy the trip and not worry about language barriers, etc. The private transfers were always on time, clean, friendly and really knowledgeable. I’ve already recommended Angie to several friends, she is great! “Chelsea & Ric S. / Panama
“I would highly recommend the professional travel service offered by Angie Fanning. My husband and I were able to enjoy a stress-free two week, multi destination, European honeymoon thanks to Angie’s meticulous research and planning. Our honeymoon was unforgettable; truly the trip of a lifetime. We were able to relax and explore Rome, Florence, and the Almafi Coast without any travel burdens or stress whatsoever.Mark & Rachel B. / Italy
Angie collaborated with my husband to carefully tailor the destinations, outings, accommodations, and services to meet our specific tastes and desires. We were provided with a detailed agenda for each day of our trip, complete with times, locations, pictures, contact information, historical background information, and consumer reviews. Everything was planned to a T, and perfectly so; we always knew where we were going, how long it would take, what there was to see and do, and associated costs.
It was evident how much time and effort Angie put into the planning of our honeymoon; everywhere we went people knew our names, knew that we were on our honeymoon, and gave us the royal treatment. She put in the legwork confirming reservations; personally speaking with and arranging our service providers, researching the best attractions to visit, places to eat, flight options, etc. so that we were able to simply enjoy ourselves, and did we ever! I was blown away by the ways in which Angie went above and beyond to truly ensure that we had the honeymoon of our dreams. Besides customizing a two-week detailed agenda for our trip, she included weather information, currency exchange rates, train schedules (just in case we missed one), alternate activities, tourist vulnerabilities and scams to be on guard for, and cultural expectations and norms and much, much more.
If you truly want to be able to relax and get the most out of your next vacation, allowing Angie to do your planning and booking will ensure just that; a wonderful and unforgettable travel experience.”
“Angie is the best!! She went above and beyond in helping my friends and I plan a very special mother/daughter reunion with our daughters in the Napa Valley and then on to San Francisco for a mini-vacation with our husbands. Angie really listened to our preferences, and found the perfect lodging, special tours, and interesting things to do and see that we otherwise would not have thought of. I was very impressed with her knowledge, her professionalism, and her great communication skills. I am looking forward to planning the next trip with Angie.“Patti P. / USA
“Paul and I want to thank you for your help with the plans for our Italy trip. We had a relaxing, fantastic trip. It was nice to have reliable, friendly drivers and guides that were easy to work with. We appreciate your hard work and would contact you again with any future travel plans. “Cheryl & Paul C. / Italy
“Six of us used AwayBug Travel for a Mediterranean Celebrity Cruise scheduled for July 2020. When it came time to make the final payments COVID had hit and the uncertainty of travel was on us so we decided to cancel the cruise before the cruise line cancelled, meaning we would lose our deposits and get a future cruise credit instead. We had one person who had actually paid all their money so when our travel agent, Angie Fanning, started working to get her money refunded she was able to get ALL of our money refunded!! The travel agency took a direct hit with COVID so to have a Travel Agent fight to get her client’s refund back knowing she wasn’t making a commission says something for this company!Cheryl S. / Europe & Alaska
We have used AwayBug on 2 other vacations over the past 3 years and will ALWAYS use them! One was a River Cruise and the other an Alaskan Land/Cruise. The ease of planning the vacation, paying and having all information in an App on your phone when the time comes to travel says it all! Relax and Enjoy with AwayBug!! Angie Fanning is the Best!!”
“We canceled our trip when COVID-19 came on the scene but the cruise company didn’t want to give us the refund we were due. Angie was so diligent and would not give up. She continued to work on our behalf until she wrestled it out of them. I could not be more impressed by her dedication to her clients. We look forward to working with her on a trip once it is safe to go.”Myra S. / Greece
“We used AwayBug to book our honeymoon in Spain and Portugal. It was AMAZING and everything went so smoothly. Really takes the pressure off booking everything yourself, and Angie found us some awesome adventures!”Julian K. / Spain and Portugal
“Pre-planning providing multiple travel options with ongoing feedback during the process. Once the trip was firmed up, a comprehensive binder provided detailing the daily itinerary and activities, and recommendations. Second successful trip, highly recommend and we will use again.”Gary G. / Europe and Alaska
” Thanks to Angie, we had a beautiful trip to Italy. My son Erik and I had a detailed itinerary planned in such an organized fashion, with clear instructions. Angie worked with us every step of the way in discussions about what we wanted to do and see and gave us advice that was invaluable. The booklet she created for our vacation in Italy was filled with such useful information, we tapped into it daily. She selected wonderful hotels and arranged some tours for us that were simply perfect. Even the flights were timed well. I wouldn’t travel again without consulting her. She’s worth her weight in gold! Erik and I send a million thanks!”Aggie L. / Italy
“My fiance and I were looking to plan our first big trip together but we didn’t know where to start. As I was Googling travel planners I came across Away Bug and saw the wonderful reviews so I decided to reach out to Angie and get her thoughts on a Trip to Greece. From the very beginning, Angie was INCREDIBLE! She quickly put together a sample itinerary based on our budget for the trip. Angie kept me informed and updated along the way and let me know what documentation I needed to get to her when deposits were due, etc. When it was time for our trip, Angie met with us and had a portfolio put together for us with everything we could possibly need from a printed itinerary, to travel insurance cards, to contact info for people we may need to contact on our trip, etc. It was more than I could imagine. I LOVED having Angie arrange all of our transfers from the airports to hotels. It was so easy and we didn’t have to worry about a thing.Melissa P. / Greece
It was the trip of a lifetime and will always be one of my favorite trips seeing as how we got engaged at the very end of the trip! I can’t say enough amazing things about Angie and I highly recommend using Away Bug’s services. I will use Angie as long as I can when it comes to planning trips as well as planning our honeymoon!”
“We worked with Angie to plan our recent honeymoon to Costa Rica and she did an amazing job! She worked within our budget and gave us several different locations to choose from, and then helped us narrow down what we wanted to do while on our trip. She made the entire process so easy, and even brought our paperwork over to our house the Thursday before we got married. We had an amazing trip thanks to her! I would recommend AwayBug Travel wholeheartedly! “Katie & Mike O. / Costa Rica
“This is the fourth or fifth trip that Awaybug Travel has done for us. All of our trips have been terrific! Angie ‘s attention to detail is wonderful so that you feel as if you are really being pampered. I have already asked AwayBug Travel to work with me on another big trip for next year!“Pat B. / Europe & USA
“Angie Fanning and AwayBug Travel was amazing! My husband and I were going on our honeymoon a year after our wedding and had never been on a vacation together. She analyzed what we were looking for in our vacation and was able to make very specific recommendations given our established budget. She also made sure that everything was taken care of from the moment we left to when we returned home! She was very organized and did a fantastic job saving us money, yet getting an overall wonderful trip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, even if you are a seasoned traveler!”Meredith C. / Jamaica
“Angie did an fantastic job planning our trip to Thailand! I’m a planner myself, but was simply too busy to do all the research for hotels and tours – Angie took care of everything. She learned what our interests were and took care of the rest, including airfare, hotels, transfers, tours, trip insurance, and pulling together other recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. She always confirmed before booking but we were always happy with her first suggestion. It was really nice to not have to worry about the details so I could focus what spare time I did have researching the ‘fun stuff’ – areas we were visiting and other things we wanted to do. I received a well organized packet of information prior to our trip. It was a great experience working with AwayBug Travel!”Lisa L. / Thailand
“I must say that we had quite an enjoyable trip! Everything went very smoothly and exactly as per your provided travel documents. The resort was very nice and exactly what we were looking for (white sand, blue water, cold drinks). The food was unbelievably amazing. Ashlee and I nearly put ourselves into food comas each night trying to enjoy every last bite. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even for the gringos that were trying to speak as much Spanish as we could muster. You made this process extremely stress-free and easygoing, so thank you so much for that! You will surely be our first choice when we begin planning our next vacation.”Daniel & Ashlee H. / Dominican Republic
“We used AwayBug Travel, LLC to help us plan our honeymoon in 2012. We couldn’t have been more thankful for doing so!Travis & Liz N. / Italy
First, we spoke with Angie about what type of trip we wanted to have, including locations and activities for the trip. Taking her recommendations, we decided on a half-relax and half-adventure trip plan. It was incredible! She helped us book the most breathtakingly gorgeous locations in Italy, and followed it up with stunning experiences in Pompeii and Rome.
But stop right there. Incredible honeymoon to Italy sounds like it would be fantastic regardless of how we planned it. Well, allow me to be clear about how much better our trip was thanks to Angie’s help. Due to your typical and inevitable trip hiccups, we required help keeping our trip on track. I can’t express how relieved we were knowing that Angie was helping us every step of the way. The entire trip was planned to perfection, and she was contactable and gracious during the entire time.
Her recommendations and networking capability: invaluable. Her knowledge which supported time efficiency and savings: undeniable. Her attention to detail and true passion for making your trip a perfect one: indisputable. We will use this service again and again to keep the precious memories coming!”
“My new husband and I worked with Angie to plan our honeymoon to Costa Rica in June of this year. I was very busy with school and work, so I just gave her a budget and asked her to plan the rest. AwayBug was absolutely amazing, and planned the perfect trip! I may never plan a vacation of my own again. She listened to what was important to us, and created a plan that was perfect for us. She was extremely thorough, and we did not have to worry about a thing. I can not thank her enough for planning our perfect honeymoon. It exceeded our expectations and more. Every detail was arranged and neatly organized in our trip folder that we were given before we left. Any question or request we had was addressed, and even while we were in Costa Rica it was great to know that she was there for us if we had a problem. I would definitely suggest planning a trip through AwayBug to anyone!”Meredith & Troy S. / Costa Rica
“We had a wonderful experience working with Angie and AwayBug Travel! Angie was very knowledgable about all aspects of travel and helped point us in the right direction. Since this was the first time we traveled internationally, she helped us navigate all of those processes as well. She provided us multiple options and really tried to find exactly what we were looking for.Kelly T. / Mexico
From transportation and coordination with the resort, it was such a smooth and seamless experience! The resort exceeded any and all expectations we had. Our room was amazing, the resort itself was stunning, the food was…wow! And the staff and service we experienced was unlike anything we have ever experienced!
Since we traveled during COVID, Angie kept us up to date on travel requirements as things changed. We felt completely safe throughout the entirety of our stay. Resort staff wore masks, common areas were cleaned constantly, our room was cleaned daily (including mopping and squeegee cleaning the floors), and other guests wore masks or maintained a safe distance. I have been telling everyone since we got back that we were probably safer at the resort than we are when we go to the grocery store or work here. We were extremely impressed, to say the least. We will definitely work with Angie and AwayBug Travel for future vacations!”
“We just returned from a fantastic trip to England, planned by Angie. Though we knew where we wanted to go, she found the accommodation, how to best tackle London so we weren’t overspending unnecessarily, had great suggestions, and thought of things we didn’t (like a private car from airport to accommodation for 6 people and luggage!). Angie is a seasoned traveler herself, which really helps. In each step of planning she presented choices for us. If we had questions, she was quick to respond with an answer, even while on our trip. We highly recommend Angie and AwayBug!”Carrie L. / London
