I have the best job in the world, I make dreams come true!

Love you sweet girl

50th Anniversary Trip

Penny, We just returned from Nashville, TN. You took care of us when we couldn't make the trip to Phoenix, AZ with the church group. The "A" tickets on Southwest were really great. Calling 24 hours in advance was terrific. Our seats and loading went very smooth even our close call in St. Louis where had only about 30 minutes to exchange planes was easy. We would travel Southwest in the future. We had an amazing 50th wedding anniversary and it all started with you! Thank you so very much!

Alaska Family Cruise

Good Morning Penny, I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much we all enjoyed the Alaskan Cruise. Thank you so very much for all of your help in making the trip go so smoothly. My parents had all good compliments about you and how efficient you were at taking extra care of them. Thank you so very much Penny!

Dominican Republic

I just want to tell you thank you for booking our trip to Punta Cana. Your attention to detail made a difference and made this our best vacation by far. First, the fact that you recommended the ocean view as opposed to garden view as the rest of the group did, was very appreciated! Enjoying our coffee in the morning and wine in the evening with a view of the ocean was amazing. Second, we had 11 other people taking this trip, the rest of them coming from Las Vegas. You were the only agent that informed us of the $10 travel card to get into DR. After seeing the line when we got to the airport of those who hadn't purchased in advance, we were truly grateful. The transport service was great and added to our carefree vacation. We have taken a cruise every year for the last 3 that we booked directly through Carnival. After this experience and your professional touch, we will contact you for any future vacations. Thank you again for helping make our vacation so spectacular!

NY Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

In November, my family (5 adults) visited New York City to watch the Macy Day Parade. It was wonderful! We owe many thanks to Penny Carpenter, TL Travel Specialist for superb travel plans. I highly recommend allowing Penny to plan your next vacation or get away. Penny was a delight to work with and gave us such good information in planning our trip and our itinerary, which was set up perfectly. Our stay in New York was absolutely delightful. Lodging accommodations were friendly, kind, willing to assist and clean. She gave us detailed, useful advice before going, including best safety measures while there. I was so impressed with her dedication and professionalism! She loves assisting individuals planning a miraculous tip and her enthusiasm really showed. I would book a trip with her again anytime.

Penny, We just wanted to let you know that everything was perfect for our wedding/honeymoon. We were very pleased and impressed with the accommodations at the resort. They were all nothing less than first class. Everywhere plus the process we went through was as smooth as planned. We can't thank you enough for making our wedding/honeymoon a dream to remember for years to come. I have already told people that you are the best and are very helpful and I recommend you above all others. Thanks Again, Joe Don and Robin

Perfect trip
Hey! The trip was perfect!

I really can’t think of anything that you didn’t do. We are so thankful we went through you! Definitely made things go smoothly!

And for the property, it was great. No complaints or surprises at all.

Thank you again for everything!

Simply the BEST
I have been using Penny since 2012 and would not use another agent. Penny has always gone above and beyond for me trying to find the best deals. I have even cancelled trips I built and gotten online "cheap" because she has found it even cheaper, WITH perks I was not going to be getting. '
I will also note when she takes me on, she knows its is not going to be easy. I like to change plans on her generally AFTER booking! She has never complained or been rude to me. She also takes into consideration the fact that we have a special needs son when she builds or vacations! I simply cannot put into words how amazing it is to have a travel agent as kind and considerate and frugal as Penny!! LOVE her!!
