My name is Scott Barrish. I have been traveling the world for the past 40+ years. My father was a very successful insurance agent with a Fortune 500 company. On a yearly basis, he would qualify for both US and international business awards conventions for his accomplishments. Additionally, my mother actually worked for a travel agency and I would accompany her on many trips; especially during the glory days of cruising in the 1980’s.
As I am personally accustomed to traveling both domestically and internationally and expect the highest level of customer service and luxury, I demand the same from the resorts, cruise lines and tour operators that I do business with for you. Furthermore, as your travel agent, I will do everything within the authority of Swell Travel Agency so that you experience the same level of excelsior treatment from the moment you leave your house all the way to when you return to the same.
At Swell Travel Agency, we offer full service travel planning. What does that mean? Well, being a professional in the travel industry, we understand all the nuances of air and ground transportation, cruising, hotels and resorts and domestic and international travel requirements and laws. Every aspect of each leg of your trip will be so well defined that all you need to do is show up to your flight or limo and everything will have been scheduled and preplanned for you.
The best part of working with me as your travel agent is that I take the time to do all the research on travel trends, reviews, stay on top of pricing specials and most importantly, and when you’re on your trip, I am your lifeline if any issues should arise with the itinerary, or, God forbid, something should happen to you or any member of the travel party; you do not get that kind of service if you plan travel on your own. The best part of working with me as your travel agent is that it costs you $0; think about the value that you receive for not paying me a fee!
Swell Travel Agency’s core competency is in the area of premium and ultra-premium ocean cruise brands such as Regent Seven Seas, Crystal Cruises, Seabourn, Paul Gauguin, Viking Ocean, Azamara Club Cruises, Cunard and many more. We also specialize in river cruising around the world such as in Europe, Southeast Asia and Africa. Furthermore, we specialize in booking our clients in suites with Royal Caribbean’s Star Class, MSC’s Yacht Club and Norwegian Cruise Line’s The Haven. In addition to the specific cruise specialties above, we also have a keen interest with repositioning, transatlantic and transpacific, exotic and world cruise itineraries with all of the major cruise lines.
But wait, there’s more! You just don’t want to go on your cruise and be done with it. That’s where Swell Travel Agency really shines brighter than the rest of the travel agencies and web-based discount sites. We encourage and plan pre, post or pre and post land tours wrapped around your cruise! After all, if you are going to a new region of the world, we at Swell Travel Agency want to make sure you have every opportunity to maximize your experience and create lifelong memories.
In addition, and on a case-by-case basis, Swell Travel Agency does provide travel services outside of our core competencies listed above. We offer free travel consultations and if your prospective trip is within our knowledge to book it, we will gladly service your travel needs. However, if we feel that your trip is outside our knowledgebase, then we will refer you to a travel partner that will give you exactly the same level of expertise and service that you would expect from us in our core competencies.
