My name is Amanda Drexler. I was born and raised in Guelph, ON. I now live and work out of my home as an Independent Travel Agent in Fergus, ON.

I have been married to my husband Ryan for 19 years and we have two teenage children Keagan and Shaelin.

Our family LOVES to travel! We have what I refer to as ‘the travel bug’, and it is highly contagious! It is my goal to infect as many others as I can with this bug.

My love for travel started in high school when I had the opportunity to participate in an exchange to Germany. I experienced the thrill of adventure running through my blood. It also opened my eyes to how different North American lifestyles were to European lifestyles. I would say Europeans understand the concept of work to live over live to work far better than us. The majority of Europeans have a minimum of 6 weeks holiday and travel is high on the list of priority of what to do with that vacation time. For example when I was in Germany over Easter they get 3 weeks off school. The majority of that 3 weeks is spent traveling as a family.

In North America we seem to be regressing rather than progressing in the means of connectivity as a family. We are more connected to our devices than we are spending quality time with our family.  Ask yourself, when was the last day we disconnected from devices, work and other obligations and had a family day? How about a week?

My drive to increase family travel comes from my own childhood experiences of craving time with my own family and the memories that I have of taking family vacations. It also comes from losing family members as a young adult and learning quickly that we are not promised tomorrow.

The health benefits alone of what travel does for the human body should have no one doubting the importance of vacation time. I specifically want to speak to fellow entrepreneurs and professionals when I point out these benefits.

Studies have shown that travel lowers stress levels, increases happiness and decreases depression. It has been found that these improvements last for weeks after return from holidays.

Studies have also found that travel expands your mind and increases brain health. Travel makes us more globally and culturally aware, it increases creativity and allows for massive personal growth. Something tells me there may be some increased productivity upon return as well.

WHAT MY CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Marilyn Watson

Amanda was able to find an excellent resort for our family multi-generational vacation. From the “kids’ club “ for young grandchildren; to “quiet adult pool” for the grandparents, everyone was very happy. Lots of fun family times together, variety of entertainment, excellent accommodations and restaurants at the resort.
We would happily recommend Amanda and will definitely use her professional services for our next vacation.

Kyla Organ

Amanda is amazing and so passionate about what she does!!!! She takes such good care of her clients from trip planning to checking in with you once you have returned home. She does extensive travel herself to find the best options for her clients!! She works with different budgets and makes sure all her clients are treated the same! She always goes beyond and gives her clients small token to say “thank you” like a Starbucks gift card that you can use at the airport before catching your early flight! End your search now – I promise she is the best travel agent you will ever use!!

Warren Boddam

We have previously looked after all our own arrangements so this was our first time using a travel agent & what a great experience! We will definitely have Amanda arrange all our future travel!! We require accessibility & Amanda went over & above to ensure all our requirements were met! Our vacation was amazing as even the smallest details had been looked after before, during & after our trip. We can’t wait to have Amanda create our next fantastic vacation!

Connie Byrne

Amanda is amazing. She listened to our needs and recommended a trip that was one of the best we’ve ever experienced. All the extra touches like packing lists and helpful reminders just added to the experience. Her customer service is second to none. Highly recommend!

Janeen Weatherhead

Amanda is seriously the best travel agent I’ve ever experienced. If you ask my kid which vacation was his best, he would say the one she planned for us. You’ve got to hire her to see for yourself. I promise you she’s worth it hands down! Best! Best! Best!
Thank you Amanda. We are forever grateful for the extra love and care you put into the details.
Antigua memories 😁

April Wasson

Amanda helped us to plan the perfect family getaway at Christmas 2019. Everything was perfect!! There were no hiccups, the resort was perfect and best of all , we created amazing family memories!! Thank you Amanda!! We will definitely use you again to organize us!!!

Stacey Good

Amanda is amazing! She’s an experienced traveller that knows the best of the best and works tirelessly to get you what YOU need! I would confidently recommend Drexler Travel to anyone! Let your travels begin!!!

Judy Hutchison

Our family has been blessed by having Amanda book some very special vacations for us. We made a very conscious decision a few years ago to invest in making memories by booking and taking some family vacations. I have booked both family and couples vacations through Amanda, and she has always taken care of researching every detail, including the very important information about food, as our son has a peanut allergy. It has been so amazing for us that we have been able to travel safely and enjoy great cuisine while we were at it. As the future world of travel will no doubt look different than it has in the past, I would highly recommend booking with Amanda. Now more than ever, a highly trusted agent is who you want booking your getaways!

Wendy Forsyth

Amanda is so knowledgeable. She is a travel agent who travels to destinations before she recommends them. Her research is very thorough.
If you are looking for the vacation of a lifetime for you and your family, Amanda is 100% you you should choose.

Ray Townsend

Amanda is the best agent you could ask for! Her attention to detail is only surpassed by her sincere desire for you to have the best vacation possible. She treats your vacation with the same level of importance as one of her own. We will use Amanda for all our travel needs – no question about it 🙂

Ron Brouwer

Our son was getting married, and my wife and I asked Amanda to help them pick a honeymoon spot in the sunny south. Amanda took the time to listen and then offer suggestions based on their specific wants and budget. She was very thorough in the paperwork which made the process seamless from beginning to end. Amanda is very professional and yet personal in her approach.
They really enjoyed the resort and said they would love to go back there again. Good job, Amanda! And thanks again.

BRobinson 359

Amanda has been such a great agent today work with. She went above and beyond for us when booking our vacation. I would definitely be using Amanda for my next vacation.

Chris Mochrie

Didn’t lift a finger, Amanda organized our trip start to finish and all we had to do was show up and enjoy our vacation 🙂 She provided a long list of activities from personal experience which saved us hours of browsing through online forums for suggestions on what to see and do. Amanda also had fantastic tips for us to make traveling with our 1 year old easier, getting us front row seats with space for our daughter to play. Thank you Amanda!

Deanna Dingman

Amanda Drexler is so amazing! Although I have known her for years she treats all her clients the same. She has booked serval trips for us and she has also canceled 2 for us. In all experiences she was amazing. I will say that while in Costa Rica and getting the call to come home for a family illness, my 1st and only call was to Amanda. She took care of everything gave me guidance on what I needed to do to get my husband and myself home. I will always use Drexler Travel!!!

Adelle Pratt

Amanda is fantastic – knowledgeable, excellent service, and she really cares about making sure your travel needs are fully met! Can’t recommend her highly enough.

Paul Roberts

Amanda, does a fantastic job. We have been traveling for years, at one point we used travel agents in Guelph, then due to dissatisfaction we started booking directly with travel firms. Then about four years ago, our daughter put us onto Drexler travel, and we have never looked back!!! As we are both retired, we travel a lot and in ALL cases Amanda has done a fantastic job for us, especially our 50th anniversary Alaska cruise, airfare, cabin upgrades etc. And on our trip too Barbados, extras delivered to our room on our special anniversary day, all curtesy of Amanda. We can not say enough about Amanda,and will continue booking all our adventures with Amanda.

Wayne Kurtz

I have had the pleasure to be able to travel with my whole family for the last few years . Amanda is my choice for planning and coordinating all the choices and expectations we have put before her. Even with this year’s cancelation she followed through so I was totally reimbursed . Work with her and she’ll work for you. Wayne Kurtz

WRXTrev28

Professional, personable and fantastic customer service…those are the words I would use to describe Drexlar travel! Amanda helped us and our guests make travel arrangements for our wedding and ensured everything was seamless no matter which part of the world they were flying in from. There were slightly cheaper options available online, but you get what you pay for and we did not have to request twice or follow up on anything. Will defiantly recommend Drexlar Travel and Amanda for all your travel needs!!

Butterfly Beauties

My daughter was to be married this May 2020… but we all know what went down in 2020! Darn Covid 19! However, I have to say that I was so very thankful that we chose to use Amanda as our travel agent for the destination wedding. She spent numerous hours and weeks communicating back and forth with Air Canada Vacations until every one of our guests was assured we all had our vacations credited back to us so we could look forward to a wedding celebration in 2021! I can’t thank Amanda enough for all her hard work she put into getting everything sorted out for our whole group trip. 💕

Didi Jenkinson

If you are looking for a travel agent that goes over and above to make sure your vacation is nothing short of perfect, Amanda is the agent that can make that happen!
From gifting us with a thoughtful pre-trip package before our vacation to Curaçao, to being pleasantly surprised by the extras she was able to negotiate for us before we arrived at the resort, she goes that extra mile.
It’s the little things that a great travel agent can do for you that make your vacation amazing!
Amanda is a pleasure to work with! We highly recommend you entrust her to procure your next adventure!
I know we will!

Judy Parks

Amanda you listen to your clients very well in order to achieve everything they have dreamed of. It’s impressive that you take the time to experience what your clients will in turn helping in the process. Great job!

Topher Baker

Amanda at Drexler Travel has been outstanding for us. We don’t travel often, so it is reassuring to have someone we can trust when planning trips, not only for my wife and I, but also to include our 3 young children. She is professional, patient, and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to finding the right vacation and to make sure we are prepared for our destination. She prioritizes our trips as if they were her own, and always follows up to make sure everything was as expected (or better)!

Tessa Kampen

Working with Amanda has been a complete pleasure! She listens to what you really want in a vacation and offers informed decisions. What I love most is that she has spent time travelling to many of the destinations she recommends and she is passionate about experiencing the culture. Highly recommend booking your next Caribbean vacation with her!

Kathy Schnell

Booking with Amanda was the best trip decision we have ever made. She made everything easy, helped us pick a place and even made sure that we would have coffee for our early morning flight. She treats her clients like real people with real needs, and ensures their satisfaction. If you are looking for an agent, I would highly recommend Drexler Travel.

Michelle Watterson

My family always uses Amanda for our travel needs. Each vacation she navigates us to the best possible destination for our family. She is very detailed and attentive. I can always trust that she is going to get us the best location and price.

Kathy Drennan

Traveling with Amanda is an experience you will never forget in all the right ways!

Pam Stumpf

Working with Amanda puts you instantly at ease that your vacation will be amazing! After booking several trips with Amanda, she always exceeds our expectations and the level of customer service she provides, is second to none. The biggest difference when you work with Amanda is that she really gets to know you. She does this to ensure your destination will be a perfect fit!!!! For us, each vacation she books, outdoes the next… can’t wait to book our next one!!🌴 If you want a vacation to remember…contact Amanda!!

Andrea Christopher

Our travel agent Amanda was wonderful. She listened to what we wanted out of our vacation and found us a great resort. She was patient with all my concerns (first time travelling with two under two – I had lots of questions!) and took the time to answer my questions and provide advice. She was always at the other end of an email, right up until the day we left for our trip. We had such a great time on our family holiday all thanks to Amanda. We’ve arranged for her to book up our holiday for next year all ready! Huge thanks Amanda and Drexler Travel!

Shannon Cox

I highly recommend Amanda. I love the idea of supporting a local business. Some asked why I didn’t just book through the internet on Red Tag or one of those websites but I felt way more comfortable going through Amanda at Drexler Travel. This was a trip that was very special and definitely a memory I wanted to keep forever and I know that she totally understood that and that alone meant alot. I gave her my list of must haves and when she gave me ( in no time ) a list of resorts back she nailed them off perfectly. I had 1001 questions a day for her and never felt I was bothering her at all.
I love our choice we made in resort and my husband is aware that when he surprises me with a trip next year to go to Drexler Travel first. Thank you SO much!!!!!!!!!
