In the News: Jenny Mikkelson Named as Top Agent

We’re proud to announce that Travel Beyond Vice President of Sales Jenny Mikkelson was named by Travel Agent magazine as on of the Top 25 Travel Agents of 2012. Here’s the full entry from the magazine:

Jenny Mikkelson is vice president of sales at Travel Beyond, an affiliate of Signature Travel Network, where she streamlined her company’s airline booking process to allow the company to focus on its core business: designing custom itineraries.

“I was often frustrated by the time required to book tickets through our airline reservation systems, as I felt like my time could be better spent on the custom details of itineraries,” Mikkelson says. “Because our company has a cooperative approach to travel planning, we implemented an internal air department to handle ticketing, which allows me more time to design itineraries and lessens my stress over airline quoting and ticketing.”

Mikkelson is an Africa specialist who has been to the continent twice in the past six months alone. Her favorite Africa trip is a five-week driving itinerary she designed for a couple headed to South Africa, which included a safari in Kruger National Park, KwaZulu-Natal, the coast of the Eastern Cape and a stay in Cape Town.

“We have used Jenny and Travel Beyond for five years,” says client Jan Thome. “We have been absolutely pleased with our trips around the world planned with Jenny. She is passionate about her profession and always has the ‘client first’ approach to meet and exceed our expectations.”
