May 4 kicks off Apple Vacations’ 11th Annual Travel Agent Appreciation Month.

How much does Apple Vacations love Travel Agents? Count the ways! And in honor of our 11th  Annual Travel Agent Appreciation Month, we are rewarding our Travel Agent friends! If you are an agent, make sure you check out the details on Apple Vacations Agent Café or ask your Regional Sales Manager.

If you are not an agent, Apple Vacations recommends when booking a vacation you “Ask an Agent” – for their expertise, connections, first-hand experience, knowledge and know-how!

Travel Agents offer invaluable assistance in booking your vacation. Agents are there to help you find the best price, handle any unexpected trip interruptions, and most importantly – they can make sure you are not only going on an Apple Vacation but the Apple Vacation that’s right for you!

Tell us – who is your favorite Travel Agent?

And if you don’t have one, find one near you!

The NFL draft is upon us.

And in Philadelphia, there has been plenty of speculation about where the Philadelphia Eagles are going to ultimately pick and which players will be a member of the Eagles by the end of the weekend.

Apple Vacations works with several of the NFL teams on come-along trips and calendar shoots, so we often follow teams from season-to-season. Over the years we’ve had the honor of hosting two local legends in resort – Eagles pro–bowl wide receivers, Mike Quick (#82) & Harold Carmichael (#17). Both are still very active in the Philadelphia sports community.

Thank you For Pete’s Sake from Apple Vacations!

Eck Family

Many times in my job, people will thank me for a fabulous vacation.

People thank me if they won a trip or if it was a group I was involved in. Or they just thank me for great customer service or making sure every aspect of their Apple Vacation went smoothly from start to finish. This week I had another thank you arrive via phone, email and in person, which was lovely.

But, in this case, I want to thank THEM.

But the one thing I am REALLY looking forward to is planning is my summer family vacation.

The holiday madness is on!

The last gift is being searched for, the final wrapping is being done and the baking is underway. I love the joy of the holidays, but every year I say I am going to “finish-up” my tasks a little sooner so I can enjoy myself more. I, of course, never do.

But this year I do have a back-up plan.
