Laura Bassett created Haute Holidays as a way to pursue her passion for helping plan and execute travel dreams. After working in corporate America as a CPA for a decade while helping plan friends’ trips and dishing out travel advice on the side, Laura decided to turn her travel obsession into a career. Laura believes in celebrating life through travel, whether a honeymoon, anniversary, birthday or just because! She knows first-hand how travel can renew and refresh your spirit and help you learn a little bit more about our wonderful world! Her favorite experiences so far are riding elephants in Thailand, relaxing in an overwater bungalow on Bora Bora and exploring the coastline of Montenegro. Laura now has two small children that she can’t wait to take around the world with her.
Developing personal relationships to learn clients’ wishes and dreams enhances the travel experience, as Laura doesn’t simply want to send clients to a destination, but to help them create lifelong memories once they are there. Laura meticulously crafts each individual itinerary with her clients in mind because just as no two people are alike, neither are two vacations. With great organizational skills and an eye for detail, Laura will ensure that no detail is overlooked when planning your trip.
Laura approaches each trip with the same enthusiasm and excitement as if she was planning her own trip. She feels personally invested in each client’s trip and is honored to be a part of their lives in this way. She loves to keep in contact before, during, and after each trip to ensure that each client has a memorable time and then is always ready to help plan where to go next.
