A Little Goes A Long Way

“My clients have been using our  Cruise Planners/American Express Trip Registry product more and more often to celebrate milestones in their lives and I just had to share it with you.

Recently a client mentioned to me that her parents would be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.  Her parents had always dreamed of sailing the Mediterranean, but never had enough money to make that dream a reality.  She, herself, didn’t feel like she had the means to buy them a cruise and she wasn’t sure how to make the anniversary special.

I suggested our “registry” page, where a friend or family member can set up a gift travel account to have individuals give monetary gifts towards a trip.  It’s really is a cool idea.  A website  is then automatically set up to direct the friends and family on how to upload “gifts”, check on the progress and ultimately view photos of Grandma and Grandpa on their 50th Wedding Anniversary cruise!

Imagine all the small gifts that are normally given during those milestone occasions, such as flowers, crystal or worse. Instead, all those who love the couple were able to send them on a wonderful, weeklong Mediterranean cruise and then see the trip photos on the website after the trip!  Talk about feeling good about giving!  It’s fundraising for people you know and love!

Because the daughter didn’t have to pay for the whole trip for her parents and Korte Travel got them such a great deal, she and her husband joined her parents on the trip and had a wonderful time.  It was a win-win for everyone.

If you have a milestone coming up, maybe an anniversary, graduation or wedding, consider our registry program to make it a “gift of a lifetime!”
