CANDACE DUPPS, CTC, LOUISVILLE OUTBOUND
An Independent Affiliate of Travel Experts, Inc., a Virtuoso Member
In addition to years of experience working in a travel agency, I also have an incredibly strong network that I am proud of. As an Independent Affiliate of Travel Experts, Inc., I am surrounded with passionate and successful Travel Advisors from across the country.
Because Travel Experts is a Virtuoso Member, I have an additional network of Advisors, Tour Operators, Cruise Lines, Airlines, Tourism Boards, Hotels, etc., and this allows me to ensure my clients receive the best service possible. I constantly build my network and continue training as well, which is necessary with how quickly and frequently there are changes within the travel industry.
In 2022, I completed The Travel Institute's Certified Travel Counselor program, which consists of 10 courses, a White Paper, and an exam. This gave me the education necessary for managing my own small travel business. I also completed ASTA's Verified Travel Advisor certification program in 2022, which furthered my legal and ethical knowledge within the industry.
With all of this being said, even if we determine that we may not be the best fit for each other, I can direct you to another amazing advisor who would be! If there's ever a question I can't answer, I know who can and will get it answered. If there's ever an issue before, during, or after travel, I will be there to help find the solution. Here is what some of my clients have to say about working with me:
"Candace was so very helpful! We were planning our first trip to Europe and Candace not only helped with the details, but she had some great general overview advice. She helped us to streamline our destinations, so we weren't constantly on the run. She sent us links to explore activities we were interested in and offered comparisons along the way. A big plus was scheduling all our transfers from airports to hotels. This was a huge help and we will never travel any other way! We have already recommended her and she will definitely be helping us on our next trip!"
- Barb (Paris and Rome, 2023)
"Candace provided exceptional service. Our trip was seamless thanks in large part to her attention to detail. Her responsiveness is refreshingly prompt. After listening to our interests and priorities, she created a marvelous vacation plan."
- Lisa (Universal Studios, 2023)
"Outstanding. We had worked with Candace before and did not hesitate to call on her to plan our trip."
- Jack (Rocky Mountaineer, 2022)
"We were so overwhelmed when trying to pick a resort for our honeymoon. My aunt that has also worked with Candace recommended having her help us and we are so happy that we decided to put our trust in her. She was very organized and made documents that were clear cut in listing out everything that the resort included with each room category. She made sure that she knew what we were wanting and gave us a plethora of great options to pick from. She was honest in telling us about certain rooms being more private than others and that really helped us pick the perfect room for us. Candace also met with us in person a couple weeks before the trip to ease any anxiety that we had about leaving the country for the first time. She was always readily available to help with any questions. I would highly recommend using Candace and definitely will be using her again for future trips!"
- Blake (Mexico Honeymoon, 2022)
"Candace is amazing! She has done a fantastic job managing several trips for my family and I highly recommend her. She is knowledgeable, detail oriented, professional and patient."
- Martha (Zion and Bryce Canyon, 2022)
"Candace was wonderful! She planned a nice trip for us including an extra day to our tour. She was very attentive to answering any question or concern we had. This was a trip that was scheduled for 2020 and was cancelled due to the pandemic. We had vouchers for the trip and Candace took care of getting those implemented. I would 100% recommend Candace. She is friendly and knowledgeable and terrific to work with."
- Cindy (Ireland Tour, 2022)
"Candace was invaluable in planning our honeymoon through Italy and Greece. We gave her some rough guidelines as to where we wanted to go and she literally took it from there. She worked back and forth with us countless times with our feedback to make it the best trip ever. The planning felt completely personalized and she had very quick response time to all of our questions and changes. The trip was completely seamless and that was all thanks to Candace. The flights, trains and cars were all perfectly planned out and nothing ever went wrong. She picked out the most perfect hotels at every single stop and we wouldn't have changed a thing. She even managed some last minute detail changes with perfect execution. We raved about her so much that my parents want to use her for their next trip. Can't recommend her enough."
- Alex (Italy and Greece Honeymoon, 2022)
"We want to thank Candace Dupps for giving us all the details about the protocols required for entry to Turks & Caicos. We had an amazing time on our vacation. She’s been helping us with all our travel arrangements since 2016. Thanks to her expertise we’ve never had any issues. She’s an incredible travel advisor who never disappoints. We will continue to use Candace for all our future travel needs."
- Lilian (Turks and Caicos, 2021)
