Beautiful Bermuda
Beautiful Bermuda

Years ago, as a young woman, I headed off the college not quite sure what direction my life was headed.  I spent about a year and a half doing what I had to do in school but honestly was always looking for something more.  Someone suggested I explore the Travel and Tourism program. 

That was one of the best piece of advice I was ever given! 

Learning about all the wonderful places on our beautiful planet was simply exciting!!  I graduated with my degree in Travel and Tourism and never looked back. 

35 years later - I own Wilcox Travel Leaders!!

Every aspect of travel planning excites me.  From corporate travel to vacation travel.  I take pride in getting the corporate traveler from point A to point B with efficiency and cost effectiveness.  At the same time, I get excited helping in the planning of a vacation of a life time. 

No matter what your travel needs - I'm here to help you get it done with expertise and knowledge.

Memorable trip to Greece.
This was our first time working with a travel agent. Maria communicated with us professionally and promptly through all aspects of planning the trip. We were extremely pleased with her choice of hotels and arrangement of transportation (ferry and taxi) in each location. We would highly recommend Maria and Wilcox Travel to anyone considering a trip to Europe and beyond!

Feeling safe on every trip and return
Everyone ask Why do you have a travel agent? this is why...
1st trip 10yrs ago, we booked thru Wilcox Travel. We got there with no problems but when it was time for us to come home I received a call from our agent and said that our flights were canceled. OMG my head was spinning, but Wilcox Travel came thru in no time. They had us booked on another flight heading home by passing NYC, straight into Syracuse.
With that experience I have entrusted all my travel plans thru Wilcox Travels. They got my back.
We have book several more trips thru Wilcox Travels. All went well, Even this one we just took. Covid placed on a 6 month delay. Once again Wilcox travel had our back and worked hard for 6 months to make our trip happen and they did.
