SOME OF OUR PARTNERS
BELIZE TRAVEL SERVICES, A FULL SERVICE TRAVEL AGENCY THAT HELPS OUR CLIENTS FULFILL THEIR TRAVEL DREAMS.
We are a Destination Management Company (DMC) also known in some circles as an incoming agent – we are not a general travel agency but provide a full service including the booking of accommodation, transfers, tours, unique experiences, private charters, groups, FIT, wedding services, relocation services and other hospitality services.
Darah Travel Ltd. opened it’s doors on the 1st January 2010 with a simple concept of ensuring that any visitor to Belize receives the finest of treatment and the best fit travel programme possible. To ensure a quality experience, the travel team visits each and every hotel, part take in each experience and travel on any transfer route prior to us offering this to our customers. We keep ourselves updated as to product changes and ownership changes and are always keen to add great new products as and when they come along and if they meet our strict standards of price/value relationship with the emphasis always being on quality and customer service.
Nick and Shannon have had the benefit of traveling the world and so far they have visited 66 countries in South America, Central America, North America, The Caribbean, Africa, Europe and Soviet States. With all these travel experiences, they are able to work with the travel team to ensure that we show the best of Belize at all price points.
We realize that there are great tools available to Budget Travelers these days so we tend to focus on the mid to upscale consumer markets.
Jennie Chan joined us 4 years ago in a part time capacity and worked so hard to ensure she has an intimate knowledge of all our products and since January 2014 she has been diligently running the business. She is very ably assisted by David Blazek (originally from Czech Republic and widely traveled), Wendy Cornelio originally from Belmopan and Mark Magana who was raised in Orange Walk but who now lives and studies in Belmopan.
The travel team work alongside our sister company Darah Transfers and Tours which employs Shenli Arnold as it’s main driver and Eraculo Bul, Jeremy Walker as back up drivers. You may even sometimes see Nick behind the wheel on a transfer!
Our portfolio of travel trade partnerships has been growing steadily with each year and on our travel trade partners we list our key travel partners. If you are looking to book a trip to Belize we strongly recommend contacting one of our travel partners. If you always book travel direct in country or are using airline mileage points then we will be happy to assist in putting together a tailor made package. For any direct business, we ask US$ 100 mobilisation fee. In the event of our advices leading to a booking then this US$ 100 is deducted from your final account – if you use our advices to ‘go it alone’ then we retain the US$ 100 for our agents time and efforts in assisting you.
We are happy to extol the virtues of using the travel trade system since this has been a successful way to book vacations in far off places since Cox and Kings, London, England, the world’s first travel company, opened its doors in 1758. Some people ask us why do we recommend using a professional travel company and it’s simple. Travel companies typically work with companies like ours, on the ground experts who are at your disposal 24 hours a day to ensure your trip runs exactly to plan – and when things go awry, which sometimes happens due to reasons outside of your or our control, then we are there to get things back on track again. Using your local travel professional means you are protected internationally against any unforeseen incident and these companies are members of associations which offers you as the traveler that all important consumer protection.
In todays’ fast paced world, information is available at your fingertips and each and every website can make it seem like you just struck Gold in the klondyke, but until now technology has failed to allow the interaction of the user being able to use their senses: touch, smell, sound, sight and taste – and that’s where we come in!
Our team is very enthusiastic about ensuring each and every visitor to Belize and beyond our borders will receive the best care and attention we are able to give. Thank you for giving us a chance to take care of you or your clients.
And finally about the name of our company, it is taken from our daughter Darah born in 2010 and who we hope one day will take over the business from us. Every time she is in the office and one of the team answers the phone “good afternoon Darah Travel” she spins around fast as lightning and says “That’s my company”! A travel guru in the making!
Yours in Travel,
Nick and Shannon Davies, Jaegan, Danai and Darah
