"I'm just writing to let you know that Janet (Morton) went above and beyond the call of duty tonite. She's been on the phone with me working out the travel for the July tour that was just insane.
It took well over 3 hours to get thru it and we'll finish up tomorrow.
She's really and truly the most amazing person I've known in this business. I've worked with other travel agents in the past before I started my company. No one is like her. Absolutely no one. Please make sure that she knows how special and important she is. I hope you take good care of her there."
Very Best, — Gille Amaral

"I have used Teresa Weeks as our corporate Travel Agent for the past...8 years...yikes!
She is prompt, professional and always looks to find the best route/airfare price possible. I have to admit that I usually peek on Travelocity first, and every time she has presented a better fight to me, at the same price as found on Travelocity.
Her ability to book a complex multi-leg trip makes my life as a traveler a breeze. AND, she's bailed me out more than once when I've missed a flight.
The best testimony for Teresa: She won over our company CEO, who didn't like Travel Agents, because they made mistakes with his itinerary. After she saved him almost $1,000 and quite a few air-hours, he never went back to booking his own flights."— Deb H.
I have worked as a travel coordinator on numerous film projects and though there are several factors that contribute to making the job go smoothly, I find my greatest ally will always be my travel agency.
Santa Barbara Travel has been my travel agency on two different projects, each presenting its own challenges for the agents and myself. I find SB Travel to be highly superior to other agents and agencies I’ve worked with over the past few years. I feel I have found a true gem as their business associate including not only their acquaintance but also their skills and knowledge in the world of travel.
The agents at Santa Barbara are professional but friendly, efficient and hard-working while making their job seem a breeze and they have no trouble handling either the short notice or volume of travelers that other agencies may not be able to keep up with during a hectic film shoot.
Unfortunately, I as the travel coordinator do not always have a choice in which travel agency to work with. Often travel is booked through a studio or a local travel agent must be utilized. However, If I had the choice, I would choose Santa Barbara Travel every time.
I recommend that anyone, whether in the film business or any business, looking for a talented, hard-working, exceptional travel agency look no further than Santa Barbara Travel.
Thank you everyone at Santa Barbara Travel for your dedication and friendship!— Natalie D.
“Hello, I'm writing to sing the praises of one of your travel consultants, Sheree Peterson. I've worked with Sheree four times now for travel related to UCSB. Her guidance and hard work have not gone unnoticed. Our travel is often complicated, with people coming from all over and having specific requests. Sheree has been extremely accommodating and alleviated a considerable amount of stress on all of us!! I couldn't ask for a more courteous, considerate agent. I look forward to working with her in the future! Thank you!” — Emily E.
“Thank you David for all your help with this one...what sounds so easy can sometimes be difficult but you all made it work.” — Barbara G.
"I LOVE working with Santa Barbara Travel. If I had to do my own travel searches I would have even less time to do my job. Travel searches require expertise that I don’t have but that Santa Barbara Travel agents possess in abundance.
Most of the time, because I’m on EDT, I work with Teresa Weeks--and her work has been amazing. She is always willing to go the extra mile to find me the best schedules and rates. That’s critical to me for several reasons: 1) I have to keep within my T&E budget; and 2) I’m in a market that doesn’t always give me a lot of choices.
Not only that, but Teresa is very thorough and efficient in her work. She sends me itineraries quickly and she even answers terribly basic questions from me when I have them. And she does all this cheerfully and professionally.
While I work most often with Teresa, I have found the same level of professionalism, knowledge, accuracy, thoroughness, and willingness to go the extra mile with everyone I’ve worked with at Santa Barbara Travel. Thanks for the good work!"

“Since moving to Ventura over 10 years ago, I have routinely used Santa Barbara Travel — with great satisfaction. My work requires an enormous amount of travel both domestically and inter-nationally. Because of my schedule, it is critical to get the best travel arrangements; this, they provide, even when accompanied by my frequent change orders. The service, speed, follow-through, and accuracy of their work is superb. I highly recommend Santa Barbara Travel Bureau for anyone who requires high quality and standards regarding their travel needs. They clearly meet and exceed my expectations."

"Hi Linda, Thank you very much. I really appreciate the excellent service you've given me with this unusual task. Santa Barbara Travel is obviously a first class operation."
— Geoff P.
"David, I am so impressed with your service. I was literally in line at the auto rental place, and as soon as it was my turn, the order that you JUST placed showed on the screen. Truthfully, I've always been impressed with SB Travel, but this great, immediate service was a delightful shock. I felt so taken care of — Thanks a million for doing what you do so well!"

"I wanted to take a moment to express my thanks and appreciation for the wonderful service I have received this year from your office. As you know, our admission office travels extensively throughout the country and globe representing our School. Often times, trips are booked and details may need to be amended numerous times to accommodate our schedules as teachers, coaches and dorm parents. For the last 5 years I've been working with your organization, I have never felt the support and professionalism I have received this year. So much so, that whenever I call to book a ticket, I always request Erin Zetter. Erin has truly been a God send for me this year as I have had numerous travel requests and multi-destination trips. She has dealt with my crazy schedule and (sometimes) last minute requests with ease, a smile and simply the best customer service you could hope for. Seeing as I am also in the business of "customer/client relations/service" I understand how difficult it can be and how much it takes to make everyone feel valued, warm and attended to. I commend Erin, I commend you and I look forward to continuing to work with your organization for my personal travel as well. It's a great feeling!
LINDA BORGATTA has also been a tremendous help and pleasant to work with. She and Erin are our office favorites."

"Using Santa Barbara travel has really helped our business. We love that our agents are watching our employee’s flight selections carefully and alert us if there are alternative flights that can save us money. SB Travel’s convenient billing has allowed our high-volume travelers to keep their AMEX cards ‘free’ from airfare charges so they have more credit available for rental cars, fuel and meals.
Teresa is a delight to work with. Our CEO has managed his own travel for more than 20-years. Getting him to use SB Travel was a big challenge. However, once Teresa coordinated one of his particularly complicated multi-leg trips and saved him both lay-over time, plus more than $900, he became a ‘believer’. He only uses Teresa now to book his travel as she knows his preferences and always gets him what he wants without having to ask."

"Santa Barbara Travel simply has the best overall support and service I have received from a travel agency in my 20 years of booking corporate travel. David Falls, my agent, at Santa Barbara travel has always made me feel confident in the pricing, scheduling and booking of all our corporate flights, both domestic and international. From the personal attention I receive from David, all the way to the quarterly Travel Management Summary provided and reviewed with me in person by our account manager, at the end of each quarter, there has never been a time that I have felt like a little fish in a big sea of travelers. I have been approached by many "corporate travel agencies" to switch our business to their agency and my response is always the same... "I couldn't be happier with Santa Barbara Travel and I have no intentions of switching today or in the future". Job well done SB Travel!"
