Patrizia opened Expert Travel Associates in 2003, and she has been dedicated to providing excellent corporate and leisure travel management services ever since. Patrizia has two travel partners from India who have been working with her for over twenty years, as well as six employees and ten outside travel consultants.

Patrizia explains, “People come to us because we are professional, reliable, and we have competitive prices. We stand behind our clients 24/7, whether they are a business, group, or an individual.”
“When my clients travel, it’s like me travelling, so it has to be perfect.” Patrizia describes her personal approach. “My clients are a little spoiled. They know they get extra service and I don’t charge them for it,” she jokes.
Clients range from corporate accounts to educational groups to families. Whatever your travel needs may be, Patrizia and her enthusiastic team have the experience and skills to guide you.
