My husband and I wanted to book a trip for just the two of us. From the first interaction with Mike we knew that he would be the one that would guide us to the perfect spot for this trip. He had great suggestions and provided all the info necessary for us to be able to make a comparative choice without being overwhelmed or confused. The resort that we ended up picking was Dreams Riviera Cancun which Mike had been at just a few months prior. It was everything we could have wanted and more for our trip! Mike made every step super easy and his customer service is incomparable! Thank you Mike for making this such an incredible experience!

One email to Mike and he was able to book flights for 3 students at school in BC to fly home to Ontario. I didn’t expect to hear from him very quickly because of all that’s going on. He had those flight booked in no time! Thanks for the excellent customer service during an uncertain time.

My experience with Mike has been top notch! I came across his page last winter, contacted him for some resort recommendations but ended up booking with a local travel agency that I have used in the past...nothing special, nothing extra, just familiar. This year I contacted Mike again & so glad I did! Never before have I had such outstanding customer service...beginning to end, the recommendations, correspondence, attentiveness, little touches along the way made this experience effortless! By far, was our best family vacation to date! Thanks for all of your help Mike... Looking forward to many more bookings in the future!

Mike recently helped my husband and I plan our honeymoon! He was so full of ideas and so excited to start planning with us! His knowledge of the different locations and "places to be" made planning so easy. While on our trip, he was only a text away to get things done! This was my first experience of dealing with a specialist travel and what a difference it has made to our usual DIY travel planning! I will recommend Mike over and over again!! I will never book another trip without him!!

How Booking Travel With Us Works


Connect & Plan

First, we book you an initial travel consultation, typically 30 minutes, to determine exactly what you are looking for. Based on that information, we work hard to research the best options for you.


Collaborate & Present

We then present the options to you. These are carefully reviewed and meticulously modified with you, as needed. Once we receive your approval email, travel booking arrangements are underway. We promptly follow up with you once it is booked.


Checking in

Prior to the exciting part of checking in for your flight, we check in with you a few days prior to your travel. We will go over any last-minute details and reminders, and provide our contact details should anything unexpected happen.


Welcome home

Upon your safe return home, you’ll receive a personal thank you email from Up Up And Away Travel. You can also expect a friendly welcome home phone call to hear how everything went.
