Spill the Bucket Tips: Collect Experiences, Not Things

Amazing experiences are the new status symbol. Americans are choosing to collect less and adventure more.

Researches have found that 74% of Americans prioritize experiences over things. Social media may be partially responsible for this change in priorities. We like to post beautiful pictures of ourselves doing amazing things, after all.

Experiences make us happy!

This may not be a bad thing. Another study found that spending money on experiences makes us happier than spending money on things.

Travel is changing rapidly to keep up with this new outlook. Gone are the days when vacations were a yearly trip to Grandma's house or a cabin by the lake. Today's travelers want to be in the middle of the action at the events where history is being made. Every year we send travelers to the Monaco Grand Prix, the Super Bowl, Wimbledon, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Carnival in Rio, and so much more.

These aren't the type of trips you want to leave to chance. You want a knowledgeable team planning this type of trip so you don't overpay, miss important details, or even worse . . . miss out.

What's on your bucket list?

Contact us now and give us your list, no matter how long or how wild. We will let you know package details when they come available. These events need to booked months or even years in advance, so don't be afraid to dump your 10- or even 20-year list on us. We'll let you know each time something on your list is available. You have no obligation to purchase the package that year, or ever. 

We tailor all packages to meet your needs. If you want to get to as many events as possible on a budget, we can do that. If you want to see the Super Bowl from the 50-yard line in the front section, we can do that too.

I'm sure everyone right now wants to know what happens if the event is canceled like so many are right now with the Covid-19 pandemic. We have you covered there too. We will make sure you have all the information needed to make an informed decision on trip insurance. And you will never be stuck on hold for hours waiting on a refund for unused flights. We take care of all of that for you.

How much more does it cost to use a travel agent?

Good question! The answer is usually nothing, and we often save you money. Tour companies, hotels, cruise ships, and ticket wholesalers pay us a commission for taking the work off of their plate. You are paying for us whether you use us or not. If you don't use us, you have no one advocating for you. We also have access to wholesale rates and suppliers that can save you a lot of money as well as offer you experiences you can't find online. The only item we add a surcharge to is domestic air since airlines only pay us a commission for overseas flights. Our surcharge is a flat $25 per flight and will be clearly shown on your quote.
