Are you tired of the same old vacation experience? At DHPL Travels, we understand that you’re not just looking for a travel agent; you want a partner who can help craft your dream vacation to the most extraordinary, rejuvenating, and thrilling destinations on earth. Our travelers are not your average tourists; they are adventurous, romantic, and individualistic. Just like our excursions, they seek authenticity and the road less traveled. We are here to make it all happen, while also providing great value for your money.
How We Tailor Experiences for You
When you work with DHPL Travels, we take the time to understand your travel style, destinations of interest, and preferred vacation time. Based on your unique preferences, we match you with a dedicated travel agent who best fits your needs. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, a nature lover, or a history enthusiast, we have the expertise and insider knowledge to create a customized itinerary that suits you perfectly.
The DHPL Travels Difference
Founded in 1998 by Australian native Corinne Goodman, DHPL Travels is a premier luxury travel agency specializing in South Pacific locales. Our team of well-respected experts is deeply knowledgeable about the culture, history, and hidden gems of this magnificent corner of the world. What sets us apart is our attention to detail and authenticity, which extends to our newest destinations: South Africa and Thailand.
More Than Just a Travel Agent
We pride ourselves on being more than just a travel agent, and our clients agree. We often hear that DHPL Travels offers a level of service that goes beyond expectations. To us, that is the highest compliment. We understand that when you choose to work with a travel professional, you’re looking for insider knowledge that can’t be found on the internet, no matter how many hours you spend searching.
Our Transparent Business Model
One question we frequently receive is how we make money. We believe in transparency, so let us explain. Our revenue comes from our partnerships with tours, hotels, and travel providers. Our buying power, based on the volume of people we send their way, allows us to negotiate exclusive deals and pass on the savings and personal touches to you. Unlike traditional travel agencies, we don’t charge fees for each transaction. We do, however, charge a small consultation fee for our full-service approach, as we want to ensure your dream vacation becomes a reality.
What We’re Not
At DHPL Travels, we aren’t interested in nickel-and-diming you with transaction fees. We are a fully accredited travel agency with a genuine passion for what we do. By working closely with you and understanding your dream vacation checklist, we tailor your itinerary and offer alternative options when necessary. We won’t send you to the Great Barrier Reef off Cairns, Australia, in January when visibility may be poor or when there’s a risk of a tropical storm. We respect your decision-making autonomy, and we provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice.
Meet Our Expert Team
Our team is made up of expert travel planners who are passionate about providing good, old-fashioned service and exploring the world’s most exotic destinations. Every year, we embark on overseas journeys to stay updated with the latest travel trends and unbiased information. Although we call Chicago home, our wanderlust takes us all over the globe to handpick the best experiences for our clients.
Your Travel Assurances
When you choose DHPL Travels, your peace of mind is our top priority. We are fully bonded and insured for your maximum protection, with accreditation from Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC) and IATA Liability insurance. Additionally, we hold an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, assuring you of our trustworthiness and commitment to exceptional service.
Proud Supporters of ANZACC
DHPL Travels is proud to be a member and supporter of the Australia New Zealand American Chamber of Commerce (ANZACC). Our dedication extends beyond making Australian and New Zealand holidays accessible to Americans. We also strive to facilitate business relationships between these countries, fostering mutual growth and opportunities.
Giving Back to the World
At DHPL Travels, we believe in the power of human connections and giving back to the community. Many of our travelers have become dear friends, and we cherish these relationships. Our founder, Corinne, has sponsored clients who have run marathons and completed triathlons to raise funds for organizations like The Hoyt Foundation. She also serves on the board of MVAT Wounded Warriors, supporting those who have sacrificed for our freedom.
