A Message from Our Owners

Olga Placeres - President & Owner - Preferred Travel of Naples

If 2022 was any indication of the healing that the world is feeling from the past few years, we are filled with faith and hope for 2023! I’d like to take a moment to reflect on where we’ve been and honor where we are going as we enter the new year.

I speak for the entire team at Preferred Travel of Naples when I say, THANK YOU to our loyal clients and partners for their steadfast support. We’ve come so far together. Our shared passion for travel burned brightly as we faced the past uncertainty, and it got us to where we are today. 2022 brought with it a welcome degree of normality that has allowed us to get back to crafting memories of a lifetime for our esteemed clients.

This year, Preferred Travel of Naples was selected as “Best Travel Agency” in Naples Daily News’ annual Best of the Best. Our amazing travel experts made that happen through their hard work and dedication by striving to provide an excellent client experience.

Our team was fortunate to travel extensively on different experiences in 2022.  Those experiences allow them to curate and share unique experiences with our clients.  They also connected with travel partners from around the world by attending various luxury travel meetings including ILTM Americas, ILTM Proud, ILTM Cannes, the annual Signature Travel Sales meeting and many more. These are just a few highlights that illustrate the importance of continuous learning and just how hard our team has worked to maintain our exemplary standards this year.

Looking forward to 2023, we are excited to share that our annual Travel Showcase will take place on Monday, February 20th at the Club Pelican Bay. Tickets are $75 per person with 100% of proceeds going to StarAbility Foundation.  Guests will find the link to register on our website in early January when the email invitation is sent.

We made a promise in the Spring of 2020 that we would be here for when you were ready to travel, just as we’ve always been. Our commitment to serve you is as strong as ever. As a team, we are excited about the future and look forward to planning the vacations of your dreams for you and your loved ones! 

On behalf of my partners, Kristina Gear, Kody Gear, and the entire Preferred Travel of Naples family, we wish you a joyous Holiday and a happy, healthy, prosperous 2023!
