About Now boarding travel
At Now Boarding Travel, we bring a personal touch to the art of planning travel. Instead of an anonymous online booking engine, you work one-on-one with a real, live travel pro who’s here to expertly guide you through all of your options.
We get to know you and what makes you tick—so that we can design a custom trip that’s as unique as you are. Then, we do it again! Our goal is to be your go-to resource for every vacation, so each journey you take is even better than the last.
Founder of Now Boarding Travel
My love for travel really kicked into high gear when I met and married my husband. Both previously divorced, we were seeking ways to blend our family of eight—with six kids between us, you can go ahead and call us the Brady Bunch!
We found a way through travel. Whether it was a simple camping trip to the Smoky Mountains or a whirlwind escape to Disney, our family vacations gave us the time and space we needed to really bond. We all stepped away from the iphones and daily distractions, and instead focused on creating new traditions—and cherished memories—together.
Through Now Boarding Travel, my team and I help you do the same. Since 2017, my travel agency has helped our clients strengthen their relationships through stupendous, stress-free escapes.
And speaking of relationships—that’s exactly what I want to build with you. Bring me all your questions, the concerns that pop into your head late at night, and the travel dreams you’ve been nursing for years. I’m here to listen and guide you through it all, ensuring you feel confident about each and every leg of your journey.
I grew up in Southern California (a melting pot of culture and diversity) and have loved adventure from my earliest recollection of being alive. At age 16 I experienced my first overseas trip (to Europe) and it was then I knew that I was created to live a life that didn’t settle for the mundane, would allow me the opportunity to see the world, and
follow my love and passion for people and this beautiful earth!
Since that time, I have lived “outside the box” of what most would call “normal” life. I moved to Amsterdam at age 24, where I lived for almost 7 years, and experienced traveling to 23 countries. I have also lived in the Caribbean, Bulgaria, and South Africa and have now traveled to more than 70 countries. My extensive travel experience has given me the privilege of seeing life through the eyes of the locals, eating their food, enjoying their customs, and giving back through various projects in which I served. It has been an amazing life.
And now, I get to continue the grand adventure as I serve others, curating travel experiences. Working with Now Boarding Travel has opened the door to the opportunity of curating uniquely designed travel experiences for my clients as well as taking small groups on journeys that will forever change their view of the world. That’s just awesome in every way!
Theme Park Pro
Hi! I’m Lauren and I’m addicted to travel, trying new experiences and being introduced to new cultures! I’ve been married to my wonderful husband (and travel partner!), Edward, for seven years and when we’re not at home with our two adorable dogs, Carlos and Huey, we are almost always en route to a new destination or repeating a long week(end) to one of our favorite travel destinations.
With family residing in Southern California, I’ve had the opportunity to visit the Disneyland Resort annually in addition to visiting the Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios in Florida a few times a year. If there is one thing Ive learned over my countless visits its that the parks are always changing and new experiences are constantly being offered and I love discovering them all. Thats why planning theme park travel is my passion because not only do I love the parks and experience but I know how hard it is to plan this kind of adventure. I know first hand what goes into creating a Disney or Universal trip of a lifetime and i’m beyond thrilled to plan these trips and help my clients dreams come true! From resort reservations, to specialty dining, to themed nights, bibbity bop makeovers, parades, express passes… I know it all and i’m ready to take the stress of your shoulders so you can sit back, relax, and just be excited to visit the most magical place on earth.
