“I worked with Kathy from Hobson Travel to organize our annual sales incentive trip. We were flying in 40 of our top sales people to Puerto Vallarta from all over the world in the month of January. Kathy relieved me of so much time and pressure by negotiating the food and beverage contracts, arranging for personalized itineraries, a welcome cocktail party, all the entertainment, speakers, ground transportation, and tours. For those that wanted to stay on past the meeting, she even arranged all their personal additional tours and hotels. You can only imagine my relief when she got 5 people re-booked and arriving only 4 hours late after a big snow storm on the east coast the day of departure. The expertise is amazing. Considering how busy our administrative assistants are, this was so worth the investment!

“My husband and I decided to take all 15 members of our immediate family (kids, spouses, and grandchildren) to Australia for a special occasion. Needless to say this was an expensive trip with labor-intensive planning. I could not have done it without Amy from Hobson Travel. She arranged all the air (from multiple city departures), group hotel rates, ground transportation, and tours, (along with specific requests from very picky grandchildren). She made all our dinner reservations at fabulous restaurants, pre-selected the menu and wines, and arranged for pre-payment. My husband never reached for his credit card! She even arranged a special family gift to be placed in each of our rooms upon check-in. I highly recommend this service!”

“I was responsible for all travel and arrangements for a 12 city investor road-show with our CEO, CFO, investment bankers, and attorneys. This included client dinners, entertainment, and many schedule changes. We did not have the option of using a corporate jet (although I’m confident Kathy could have handled that too). Kathy from Hobson Travel handled everything with grace and a friendly, calm voice. Most times my CEO and CFO were upgraded to first class. The hotel managers always greeted them personally upon check-in. Ground transportation was flawless-even with delayed flights and tight schedules-she made sure they always made it in time. She even ensured our equipment was delivered timely. I could not have done this without her.”

“I own a relatively small company and needed assistance planning my annual training conference. I needed the travel and lodging and full-day conference planned for 75 people. I also hosted a private dinner for 25 people the night before the conference. Not only did Hobson Travel handle all the travel details but they assisted with the venue selection, dinner reservation, and the food and beverage negotiation with the hotel for the conference. This was my big marketing meeting and needed it to be upscale (on a relatively small budget) and go off without a hitch. My employees were all overwhelmed at the time, nor did they have the expertise that Kathy did from Hobson Travel. This was a great use of outsourced expertise. I’d recommend this solution to any small business owner.”
