"My experience with Travel Central, and specifically Laura Marchese, as been outstanding. My company, ISPD, has relied upon Travel Central for over 20 years, and they have been professional, responsive, and on-time with their delivery of travel details. Personally, every week I am on 3-5 planes, stay in1-2 hotels, and need 1-2 rental cars for the 1-3 cities I am working in. Laura is always right on time and works with me to get the best prices and times. She knows that I like Delta and Southwest, Marriott properties, and Hertz car rentals. She understands the key points of my profile and what I do prefer and don't like. In addition, when my associates and even family members travel, they are treated with the same courtesy. Absolutely no problem at all recommending Travel Central Central -- first class operation"  -Frank Donaldson of ISPD 

Book all my bosses travel through Laura who is super responsive and always happy to make adjustments to his ever changing travel schedule. A bonus is she is super friendly and super nice - Carmen Hall

We could not ask for a better travel agent than Laura Marchese. Everything for us revolves around travel near and far. Oftentimes that also means last minute or unexpected changes. Laura is always available to assist and does it with a smile. We can't say enough about Travel Central. - Bernadette Wiltz

  • Sign up to get frequent flyer, hotel anc car rental points program now. Compile a list of all your numbers to make sure you never miss a chance to earn points for your travels.

    The first time we talk,  We will build your profile, starting with your name exactly how it appears on your passport and driver’s license. We never want to risk TSA denying you boarding because your name doesn't match. We will collect all of your details—your date of birth, address, points programs numbers, seating and meal preferences, billing information, everything. It may take a little time, but believe me, it makes a huge difference to have the information in advance
  • Global Entry Or TSA Pre-Check......Which do we recommend?  That depends on where, and how much, you're traveling. Thankfully, we don't have to answer that question. Use the Department of Homeland Security's interactive Trusted Traveler tool, which only requires that you answer a few questions about your travel habits before generating the best program for you.
