Off the Beaten Path Exploring Extremadura, Spain

My husband and I are experienced travelers and have always preferred to make our own travel plans. That has changed now that we’ve traveled with Amalia’s help. We just returned from a terrific trip to Spain, in the Extremadura region. Our goals for the trip were to experience and understand Semana Santa festivities and immerse ourselves in the area’s history and culture. Working with Amalia we were able to achieve and exceed both!

At least half of the places we stayed and things we did we would not have found if we weren’t working with her. She really understood our travel preferences and made reservations and recommendations accordingly. From fine hotels with amazing views and VIP perks, to medieval castles, palace accommodations, Roman ruins, museums, charming small towns, a private tour of her mom’s art studio, and excellent restaurant picks, we enjoyed every moment – despite the rainy/cold front that hung over half of the trip.

As if that wasn’t enough, all of the details of our trip were neatly organized in a mobile app that Amalia updated as plans changed. She made and confirmed reservations, helped us cancel a bike tour when the weather was crappy, and was available on WhatsApp if we had questions or changes to make.

We’ve already engaged Amalia for another trip this year and plan to use her services in 2025 when we go back to Spain. We’ve referred her to three friends and I highly recommend her services to anyone. And if you are an experienced traveler who is used to making all of your own plans, you will be amazed at how much engaging Amalia improves your experience.

First-Time Visit to Denia

I’m so grateful to my travel advisor, Amalia Maloney, for recommending Hotel Chamarel and taking care of all the details. She has continued to provide outstanding service for my transition to Spain, and continues to exceed my expectations! Thank you, Amalia, for your expertise, kindness, patience and tremendous organizational skills. I don’t know how I could manage without you!

Summer Trips in Spain, North & South

We have planned two trips with Amalia’s help, and she was great both times. The first time she helped us organize a four-city trip, helping us find accommodations and suggesting activities. The second time we returned to Denia, where she is based, and she was able to connect us to a local homeowner and to arrange rental of their lovely property, which was not listed, at a very good rate. She is a pleasure to work with!

Move to Europe Consultation

Just had my initial consultation with Amalia and she was great. Very informative and open to discussing moves to other countries besides Spain. Before we spoke she researched some areas in France that I had mentioned on the pre-call questionnaire – nice touch! Thank you Amalia for a great conversation and I look forward to speaking with you as we get further along on our move timeline.

Hotel Booking in Spain

Having Amalia’s assistance with booking a hotel for our trip was the best choice. She provided a few hotels to pick from and broke down what each had to offer for comparison. It was so much better using her services then blindly picking one myself. She provided hotels that were safe, had good reviews, and were close to the things we wanted to do in Girona. She was very quick to respond to my questions and a dream to work with! Hotel Bestprice was the perfect hotel for my stay thanks to Amalia.

We travel a lot and we are quite particular about where we stay. Amalia (our travel advisor) was recommended to us and she really impressed us. She knew exactly what we were looking for from our trip and her local knowledge was superb. We don’t think we would have got as much out of our trip without Amalia’s services.

Spain Summer Visit to Segovia & Oviedo

I loved our trip to Spain! Amalia was so organized and our hotels and apartment were so perfect! And comfortable. All the details were very well planned out. Our time to explore the cities and ancient cathedrals were so special. Spending time with the family was precious and I will remember the trip and time we spent together forever! Amalia was so helpful getting us our train tickets and booking unforgettable sites! Her planning and making arrangements for all our wonderful dinners made everything so easy and delicious. I will recommend her services to all my friends and family.

Moving to Spain Consultation

My wife and I had an extraordinary opportunity to consult with Move to Traveling for 30 minutes via Google Meet video (although other chatting options like WhatsApp, etc. are available). We discussed our initial thoughts/concerns for a scouting trip within coastal Spain and France along the Mediterranean in search of a location that’s a good fit for us in retirement living as expats.

Amalia, the owner, is so positive, a joy to work with, and she made us feel like we were on the right path – which was reassuring. She was also refreshingly forthright in saying she wasn’t super familiar with, but was aware of, one area we are interested in visiting. However, she was certain in her abilities to attain sound and reliable contacts and information that would help us have a positive experience in that location. This spoke volumes to us because she was humble enough to admit not being fully aware of a location but simultaneously confident in her ability to get more than what we’d need to make our visit to the location a good one.

We got great information and direction during the live video chat and then received (via a Google Drive docs email link) a recap of the conversation providing additional information that will not only be key to living in Spain but some of which can be used anywhere outside the USA (e.g. banking options, links to additional resources, etc.). All things we can readily use – even now while living in the USA.

With Amalia’s many contacts and talents, while also being a certified Fora Travel Advisor, we’re confident she’ll be able to meet our future needs in procuring trip plans, reservations for hotels, restaurant recommendations, etcetera. She even talked about an immersion experience that happens with locals in her area that sounded right up our alley and we’ll be sure to book our trip to coincide with the gathering(s).

If you fall across Move To Traveling online, follow them. Now! Your initial interest in seeing beautiful scenery will be met with learning tips about and getting links on daily living in Spain (Tesla Taxis in Madrid, rental options in Valencia, IG Live events, connections to other expats, restaurants, hiking locations, public transport, etc.). The longer you follow them, the more your intrigue of living in Spain and using Move To Traveling’s services will grow.

In the end, we are beyond pleased with the consultation and would highly recommend booking one, establishing a relationship with Amalia’s company, and taking advantage of their vast knowledge and travel services.

Surf Trip to Spain & Portugal

Integrity hard work and commitment are things that I look for in a travel agent. Amalia was all of that and more. I highly recommend getting her as your travel agent for your upcoming trips. She goes out of her way to ensure you are prepared and everything goes smoothly when traveling and throughout your trip. Not only did she organize my vacation, she took her time to give me many recommendations on where/what to eat, where to visit to make sure I get a full emersión experience of the Spanish culture. In addition she went above and beyond when I had issues with lost luggage. She was there every step of the way to help me fight and resolve my issue and even reached out to the airlines and travel insurance to make sure I was properly taken care of. I will definitely be using her services again in the future!

Denia Meet & Greet

We were absolutely delighted with our experience. Amalia and Eric were a fantastic source of information and had so much to share in terms of useful resources tailored exactly to our requirements. So much local knowledge cannot be underestimated, especially for people considering a big move to Spain and this was an invaluable meeting for us. It was followed up by an excellent summary and briefing document filled with even more information and links to useful websites, contacts etc. We have already used lots of the recommended resources. I would also like to add that Amalia and Eric are a charming and lovely couple who were so easy to chat with and we very much look forward to being neighbors and meeting with them again!

The Magic of How it's Done

Service Fees:

  • I charge a fee for certain planning services so that you can benefit from my time and expertise spent on research, custom itinerary design, booking arrangements, and support that create a bespoke trip for you. It’s a great way to value your time, to value my time and experience, and to support a small business.

Flights:

  • I do not book flights because it is an item that is best for you to book yourself due to the difficult and restricted nature of changing tickets. I can research flights to provide options and consultation, but I do not provide exact pricing quotes since there are multiple, detailed factors when booking that you can choose to add to your flight.

Travel Insurance:

  • I strongly encourage all clients to get travel insurance. As part of my services, I provide travel insurance options from some of the best providers so that your trip costs are protected and you can travel with peace of mind.

Process:

  • I'll send you a trip inquiry form to gather your desires for your next trip. Not sure of where you want to go? No problem! I can help provide some great ideas and options to consider based on the information you provide about your preferences and desires.
  • From my Travel Consultant relationship with vendors, I check for ways to maximize your trip with any exclusive promotions and benefits that I can access.
  • When you've decided on what you want me to book, I'll provide a secure online credit card authorization form that ensures we have a record of the amount you're authorizing me to charge your method of payment for the booking. Sometimes bookings may be paid up front and other times at the property, depending on the conditions.
  • I'll make sure to send timely reminders of any upcoming payments for bookings.
  • Your bookings and details will be compiled into a convenient, online itinerary that includes links and real-time flight tracking to notify you of delays or cancellations. It's mobile friendly to view in your browser and also downloadable as a PDF.
  • You'll embark on your trip and can be in touch with me for any help needed during your travels that pertains to the trip in general and the bookings I made for you. The same applies if anything needs to be resolved after your trip.
