Just the Ticket Travels is a full-service travel agency focusing on experiential & adventure travel. This can mean different things to different people, whether it's taking a spiritual journey hiking the Camino de Santiago, feeling completely relaxed and pampered while floating down the Rhine, or simply enjoying nature and wellness on a beach in the Caribbean.
It's my personal mission to encourage others to push themselves outside of their comfort zone in order to fully experience a destination! I aim to achieve this in an ecologically and culturally sustainable manner - to positively impact the communities that myself and my clients visit!

My Travel Niche
Adventure travel is for those that are interested in active adventures, cultural immersion, and free time all wrapped into one! There are a multitude of adventures at the ready - including hiking, biking, kayaking, etc. The only limit is your imagination!
Independent journeys are for those that like to stray from the beaten path and fully immerse themselves when they travel. Independent travelers tend to like itineraries with their travel and accommodation taken care of, but like exploring a destination at their own pace.
Escorted journeys are for those that prefer a guide and/ or group trip, are traveling alone, going to a new place for the first time, or visiting those destinations where English is less common, and having a local guide that speaks the native language will put them at ease!
I book other styles of travel, but my specialties are above. Don't see what you want? Contact me!

What people are saying...
"I would recommend Just the Ticket Travels to anyone looking to plan their vacation. Shannon always went above and beyond to make sure that we got the most out of our trip and every highlight that I wanted to see was included in the trip. Very organized and had smooth travels throughout my vacation. Already thinking about my next trip!" -- DAVID R.
"Shannon is absolutely amazing. She made planning my trip very easy and was able to get a great deal at the resort I stayed at. Plus she kept in contact with me before the trip and responded quickly with any issues or questions. I will definitely be using her again for my next trip. It was really nice to have a travel agent that cares." -- PAULA H.
"Shannon is an excellent travel planner, for any budget and destination! She also has a knack for finding the local places away from the crowds that truly make a vacation memorable. Highly recommend!" -- CLARICE C.
"Shannon arranged my Los Angeles trip and it was one of my most stress-free vacations I've taken. I hate scouring the internet for hotels, flights and car rentals, so it was great to have someone do it all for me. She found me a comfortable and affordable hotel right in the heart of Hollywood that didn't charge parking, which was great. She really took the stress out of the travel experience for me, and I am so appreciative. She even had recommendations of things to do that I would like! Totes recommend Just the Ticket travels." -- UNII SAIBA
"Shannon arranged my recent trip to Oahu and I had the best time! We had a great condo in Waikiki, hit the top tourist sites, had snorkeling and hiking adventures, and topped it off with an amazing luau. She's fun, friendly, knowledgeable, and I cannot recommend her more!" -- CASSIE C.
"Shannon booked our 16 day trip traveling through India and Nepal. We are very budget oriented travelers and Shannon catered to our requests and delivered! We told her how much we really enjoy indulging in new cultures/experiences, so she provided many possible tours. Whether it was the spice markets in New Delhi or the family home in Jaipur we visited during Diwali celebrations, these tours really made it seem like we were part of everyday life where we stayed." -- MICHAEL E.
