David Rentsch

Hawthorn Woods, IL

Group Travel Planning Specialist

My greatest professional strengths lie in my organizational and administrative skills, which is what allows me to excel at my passion for arranging large group travel excursions.

Whether my client is a family of ten setting out for a legacy discovery trip, or a 600-person corporation planning the annual convention, I thrive on coordinating every single detail of the adventure, including:

  • all special requests
  • securing the required travel documents
  • managing registrations
  • personally overseeing each itinerary

I will even escort your group as needed, by joining you for the entire trip as a guide and soon-to-be friend. I interface with all of the vendors along the way, attend the various events or meetings to ensure that all the clients’ needs are being met, and am on hand to troubleshoot any unforeseen occurrences.

I consistently strive to exceed my clients’ expectations, and this hands-on approach to every nuance of the trip allows me to do just that.

When I was young, my family traveled extensively across America and Europe. Prior to becoming a travel agent, business took me to Europe, Ireland, Brazil, and many other destinations that whet my appetite for a career that would allow me to help others explore the world. My wife and I have four daughters with whom we travel frequently. Sometimes my family and I take the same trip that I have planned for my client, which goes to show I plan your trip as though it were my own!

As St. Augustine wrote, “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” Nothing gets my adrenaline pumping more than traveling to a place I have never been. My wife and I are going on a river cruise this summer that will include stops in Hungary, Slovakia, and parts of Austria.

I want to turn as many pages as I possibly can in this lifetime and help you do the same!
