So they didn’t actually give me a hat, but my newest role in life is Outside Sales Representative for Stonetown Travel. That’s a fancy way of saying that I am a home-based travel agent for a travel agency based in St. Marys, Ontario that provides worldwide travel packages to people in Canada and the USA.
What does this mean for Kidsumers?
Kidsumers isn’t changing and it won’t become a site that simply sells travel, but I want to share my new role and let you know what I can offer. I will be focusing my other website, familyenroute.com, on sharing travel deals, providing quotes to potential travelers and selling travel packages. Kidsumers will share the occasional deal and of course continue to share reviews and travel stories. If you want to make sure you don’t miss any travel deals, sign up for the Family Enroute newsletter where I will send out travel deals each week.
If you are a long-term reader of my blog, you will know that I didn’t begin traveling until I reached my mid-thirties. I made the shift from someone who thought I would never be able to explore the world, to someone who grabs every opportunity. I want to help other people make that shift and realize that travel is attainable. There are ways to make your travel dreams come true, and I want to help you do it.
Over the last decade I have visited many parts of Canada, the US and the Caribbean. I have a strong knowledge of Disney and as a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge, I can help you plan your perfect Disney vacation. I have personally experienced Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Lines and Disney Aulani. My travel experience goes beyond Disney and I can share my expertise with multiple airlines, cruise lines and resorts.

Why Use a Travel Agent?
There are so many online travel services that some may feel the travel agent is obsolete. If you have the time and patience to sift through the offers out there, why would you need a travel agent? For consumer protection, savings and ease.
By booking with a TICO registered travel agency, you have consumer protection. All Ontario agencies are legally required to register with TICO and follow their guidelines for advertising and sales. By purchasing travel through a TICO registered agency, you can rest assured that your best interests are the main focus. The compensation fund is available for consumers who have complaints.
As I quickly discovered, there are savings available to travel agents that you can not find online. Just as the big box stores can sell products for a lower rate due to the amount of product they buy and sell, the same is true for travel agents.
What could be easier than telling someone what you want, and having them do the legwork? If luxury is what you want, make that clear. Should savings be a higher priority, let your agent know. When you have several dates available for travel, allow your travel agent to surf through all of the possibilities and present them to you. In cases where there is a change in availability, flights, etc., your travel agent will handle all the details for you.
