When you think of Andrea Carr-McNeill, think of me as the specialist when it comes to the details.
I have been involved in the travel industry since 2009 after ‘getting the bug’ in 2007 when I took my first (escorted) trip to the Riviera Mayan with The Travel Store and 60+ other people.
My role as of September 2013 at The Travel Store is the Director of Agency Support & Marketing (etc.) prior to which I was the Business Development & Groups Manager. Each and every day I am very proud of what our team brings to the table in the way of experience and customer service, and in my new role I will help nurture them along their journeys with you, our clients, as well as our suppliers in getting the best value and vacation product for your money.
I am passionate about making sure everything is just right for our clients before departure and that our group escorts are well prepared to travel with you to destinations all over the world. I am consistently looking for new ways to grow both our leisure & corporate business; be it through referrals, our website, establishing new business contacts or just good old PEI ‘word of mouth’.
I have an extensive sales and management background in print advertising with The Guardian, Imageworks Communication Group; which was the largest private publisher of Prince Edward Island tourism products, project management with different organizations and also experience in the hospitality industry which all spans over the last 30+ years.
Since ‘getting the bug’ in 2007, I have been very fortunate to have travelled to the Riviera Mayan (Mexico), Punta Cana (Dominican Republic), Lucea (Jamaica), Cayo Santa Maria (Cuba), Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Grand Cayman Island, St. Lucia, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Tuscany Region, Rome, Florida where I did an extensive Walt Disney World experience, San Diego, New York City and most recently to Rhode Island. My list is just getting started, so stay tuned for more amazing destinations to come!
In the past I have volunteered with the Heart & Stroke Association, Canadian Diabetes Association, Sherwood/Parkdale Figure Skating Association, Ocean 100′s IWK Radiothon, Tour de PEI (Organizing Committee) & Canadian Blood Services to name a few.
When not making sure everything is ‘just right’ or travelling, I’m busy with my husband Scott raising our teenage daughter Karina, camping, or just enjoying time with friends and our extended families!
