How does Global Travel Services take the stress out of travel?
When you travel, whether it’s for business or pleasure, internationally or in the United States, the hassle factor can add stress and distract you from your goals. Fortunately, you can call on Global Travel Services and avoid all the stress. No more hours spent on the internet looking for information about visas, currency, power converters or the weather. The experienced Global Travel Services team — Joe Metallo, Carol Pesavento, Gail Wood and Tara Videtic — can take care of all that and more: what people at your destination eat and when, whether you need travelers’ checks, safety issues to be aware of, whom to call in case of emergency — and how to use your cell phone in another country.
