Chelsea Jones

Bloomington, IN

Iceland, Ireland, and NYC Vacation Specialist

When you think "island getaway," you may think of golden beaches, sunscreen, and fruity drinks with tiny umbrellas. I love planning those vacations, but my real passion lies with slightly different island destinations – Iceland, Ireland, and Manhattan! Whether you want to bundle up and chase the Northern Lights in the Icelandic winter, take in the latest Broadway shows in NYC, or toast with a fresh pint of Guinness at an authentic Irish pub, I can take the stress and guesswork out of planning YOUR perfect island getaway!

Alaska is calling!!
Chelsea was so much fun to work with. She was as excited as us in planning our family cruise. She listened to what our desires were and delivered! Unfortunately Covid appeared, so will have to wait. I’m so happy to have Chelsea in our corner. She always does what’s best for us and is helping to navigate cruise cancellations and refunds.

Cruise with my granddaughter
I would recommend Travel Leaders and Chelsea to anyone. The office is very professional and very helpful. Customer friendly!
Norwegian had a personal touch, they were very welcoming. The ship, food and service were flawless. Lots of nice experiences with my granddaughter. Enjoyed Key West and we had plenty of time there.

Our dream trip
Super helpful in planing our trip to Maui, always responded promptly and answered the many questions we had. Really friendly and a pleasure to work with , stayed in our budget and even made some suggestions to save us some money. Didn’t pressure us into anything we weren’t interested in and really listened to help us plan what would’ve been the trip of our lifetime. She encouraged us to buy trip insurance and very thankful we listened as we ultimately decided to cancel our trip due to Covid concerns. Ms. Jones was super understanding of our situation, processed our refund and saved our itinerary for us as we have very high hopes to re-book in the future. 100% satisfied with our experience and highly recommend.

We have to reschedule but will do so with Chelsea!
Chelsea is a life saver. She handled shuffling our travel plans during the COVID-19 crisis. I can't tell you how many times we said "thank goodness we hired her" vs. trying to do this ourselves. Prior to the crisis, she quickly gathered a number of destination recommendations, quotes, and date options for us. Within a few weeks of thinking "hey, we should go on a vacation", we had an exciting trip lined up, thanks to Chelsea.
