How Does it Work?

One of my friends just posted: "Every time somebody tries to sell me something on Facebook, an angel loses its wings." I laughed. I agree, there are far too many people trying to sell you stuff you don't need on all forms of social media! Disclaimer: I buy a lot of it, marketing works on me.

Get Globetrotting is not trying to sell you something you don't need. I started this service for a few different reasons:

1) I recently quit my nursing job to be a stay-at-home mom. I enjoy staying at home with my baby, but now I have some extra time I didn't have previously. I loved being able to serve people every day as a nurse. Becoming a travel planner will help me continue to serve people AND use my brain.

2) I noticed that friends and family were spending too much money when traveling because they didn't have the time to properly research and find deals. I've made something of a hobby out of finding great deals on self-planned trips for my husband and I. 

3) I also noticed that when I got back from my trips, people would say things to me like: "I could never afford to take a trip like that," or "I have too many kids so I can't travel," or "I could never figure out how to work Airbnb," etc etc. I want to help people solve these problems because I believe travel is important and affordable if you are organized!

The idea is that I will actually save you cash in the long run by using GG's services, not take your hard-earned money for things you don't need.

Additionally, I am giving away a lot of services this month so that you can see what GG is all about! That's right, free stuff!

So what is it that I am giving away?

Do you think the family will be able to fit me in their suitcase?

Get Globetrotting plans either complete trips or portions of trips tailored to the group's budget and interests. For example, I am currently working on activities for a family of four who are going Paris in April. They submitted their travel dates and interests, I sift through travel books, blogs, and Pinterest to give them a day-by-day itinerary that's perfect for their family. 

Other services include: airfare research, accommodation research, cruise and tour information, weekend getaways, and advice on a pre-existing travel itinerary.
