Eau Claire, WI

Travel Specialist - Eau Claire WI

With over 30 years in the travel industry, I’ve watched the world become more accessible than ever before – and I’m still amazed at all the places I’ve been able to send my clients...

My first focus was on corporate travel early in my career, but I’ve progressively expanded to more leisure travel for families, couples, and large groups.

I am happy to work with clients who have never traveled before as well as clients that are highly experienced world travelers looking for something off the beaten path and different. I will ensure that no matter what level of travel you are comfortable with, I can create a trip that is personalized specifically for you. Although I like the challenge of custom itineraries and adventures, my most common vacation bookings include:

  • Alaska
  • Honeymoons/Anniversary Trips
  • Ocean & River Cruises
  • Multi-destination travel
  • Escorted Tours
  • And more

…From Mexico to Europe, the Caribbean Islands, Disney Parks and Cruises, Alaska and beyond,I have had the privilege to not only send my clients to these destinations but visit them myself. Of all the destinations I’ve been to, I have developed a true passion for Alaska. The Alaskan wilderness and scenery are second to none and it’s a destination that clients of all ages enjoy visiting. I can help you determine the itinerary that best suits your interests and budget, as well as hand-picked recommendations you can’t find online.

Whether you are looking to go by yourself, with your spouse, or with a large group, let me handle all the details so you can focus on your much-needed vacation. As your trusted travel advisor, I am ready to take care of you from our first contact together until you return home.  I look forward to working with you on your next adventure.

So very pleasant and helpful. We are in the "anticipation" stage of our trip and she is quick to answer even the most trivial questions we come up with!

Amazing Vacation!!
This was our first time using Higgins Travel, we've used our AAA agent in the past, but she wasn't returning our calls or emails.

Karen promptly responded to all of our questions, listened to our wants, needs, and desires and landed a "10"! There were six of us to accommodate and Karen nailed it!

Great customer service, friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. We will definitely recommend her to other friends and family, in state or out of state!
