My Travel Training

Riviera Maya, Mexico
Riviera Maya, Mexico

Hello fellow travel enthusiast! I have had a complete sense of wanderlust for as long as I can remember. What a magical feeling it is to experience new cultures, food, and people! What better way to follow my passion than to make it my career.


I am currently a Certified Honeymoon & Destination Wedding Specialist and also a Certified Travel Specialist. I am in the process of obtaining my certification for Luxury Travel. I have already obtained certification in many other areas, such as guided world tours by Cosmos & Globus, independent tours by Monograms, river cruising by Avalon, College of Disney Knowledge graduate which includes Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line and Adventures by Disney. I have had the amazing opportunity to travel to places including Thailand, London, Paris, New Zealand, Ireland, Toronto, Cancun/Riviera Maya, the Bahamas, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Phoenix, Disney World, Disney Land, Gatlinburg, Asheville, NC and the list goes on.


I strive to make every customer interaction the best it can possibly be from creating letters for my clients to hand out when the trip they have planned is a surprise to following-up after the trip and every little detail in between. I even completed an internship at the Walt Disney World Resort which was an incredible experience that allows me to truly give my clients a "behind the scenes" feel when planning their Disney vacation! My favorite things in the whole world are traveling, of course, my husband, food, family, and cats!


As an agent, I strive to work within every budget type. Whether you are just looking for a weekend getaway or a month long trip, I truly look forward to working with you to create the most amazing vacation experience there is. Have a wonderful day!

Honeymoon was amazing
Anastasia was wonderful. She had all the answers to my silly questions, as well as very informative about the trip and what to expect.

She was super friendly and very professional. Loved working with her, in future we will definitely use Anastasia again. :)

Disney vacation with no stress thanks to Anastasia
We did not understand the benefits of working with a travel agent until we met up with Anastasia. She put our needs first and began to customize a vacation that best suited what we wanted to accomplish. She understood our busy schedules and made things easy for us to accomplish the important details prior to our vacation. Anastasia is the most proactive person I have ever witnessed! She sent us ideas and found a phenomenal promotion did leg work on our behalf to get the promotion applied. She could have not done that, however, it is not her style. She puts her clients first and her personality kept us calm and collected during some of the stressful parts of planning and budgeting. We could have never done this on our own--Anastasia was patient with us and gave the best advice based on her wealth of experience and research. If you want someone to pay attention to the details and do what is right during every step of the process, then look no further than Anastasia.

Do not overlook this travel agent
My experience with Anastasia was delightfully better than I expected. I went in with my guard up. She not only saved me money (i never expected a travel agent to save me money!) but she saved us so much time in researching and took the guess work out of booking our honeymoon. Thanks Ana, I'll be a returning customer.

Hi Josh + Chelsea! Thank you so much for the review! I understand many people do not fully know the benefits of using a travel agent but I’m so happy you entrusted me with the most romantic vacation of your lives! I hope Mexico was everything and more for your honeymoon! Thanks again and I look forward to working with you for many years to come! Sincerely, Anastasia Bender

Birthday Trip!!
Anastasia was just what I was looking for in a travel agent! I was having trouble getting responses from someone I had used before. I reached out and was recommended to use Anastasia! From the first email, she has been professional, courteous, very prompt with responses and great all around. I look forward to continue working with her as my travel date approaches. I feel comfortable knowing that I can reach out to her and she will be able to meet my expectations should issues arise!

Absolutely Best Experience!
Absolutely Excellent! She made the entire process of booking and traveling for our honeymoon so very easy. She made sure we got home safely and without fuss by rearranging our flights due to incoming bad weather. As a first time user of a travel agent my now husband and I were a bit skeptical but working with Anastasia was truly wonderful! We will definitely book with her for our trips now on!
