At Penny Sheldon Travel we offer you a full range of travel services to any destination in the world. We Specialize in all locations in Paradise!
After 25 years as the owner of Penny Sheldon Travel I only recommend properties that will offer you the best vacation in Paradise based on my personal experience! I am more than familiar with the finest beaches that have the most beautiful turquoise waters ~ waiting just for you. Plus, I distinguish the difference between the BEST resorts for you as well as where NOT to stay. Which is equally as important!
My vacations are spent doing sight inspections so that I can better serve my clients. I stay and experience the destinations that I recommend and make it a point to inspect as many resorts as I can when I travel to a country. You work hard ~ you take care of your family ~ you deserve someone to take care of you. Remember our service costs you NOTHING ~ so why not let us do the work for you!
Let me tell you how we got started in the travel business . . .
Many years ago I was going out with a gentleman who wanted to take me to an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica for my birthday. I had traveled over most of the world and was quite the travel snob. I asked him why he thought I would want to go on such a vacation. After all I had been to the finest places and mixed with locals in London, Istanbul, Prague, Italy, Austria, Germany, Greece, and Mexico ~
I'm surprised that he took me anywhere after the way I acted . . . however, we did go to Sandals Ocho Rios and fell in love with it. So much so that we went to six different all-inclusive resorts over the following few years. I was Executive Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for two states at the time. Yet I was so taken with the concept of helping others expand their world with adventures to far off lands ~ I decided to leave my job and start my own travel agency.
At the time that I opened Penny Sheldon Travel, the home-based travel agent community that is around today did not exist. I was truly a pioneer in this area of the travel business. It was a grass roots effort to follow my vision and launch my one-woman office. My daughter, Ashley joined the agency in 2004 and with the arrival of three boys she has made her area of expertise in family resorts.
We have more than 3,000 clients from all over the United States, Europe and Asia.
And as they say . . . the rest is History.

I am yet to find a travel agent who is more devoted than Penny. She is fussy as to where her clients stay in a hotel, she will call you personally to find out which room you have allocated. It is this attention to details that sets her apart from the run of the mill travel agent. Certainly, when I worked as a General Manager at Sandals, Penny had no difficulties sending me her clients. Penny's loyalties have no bounds once a good repour is established. Every traveler and every General Manager of a hotel needs Penny!!!

We have been traveling with Penny Sheldon for many many years. Each year our plans have been flawlessly executed because of her planning/arranging efforts. We refer everyone we hear looking for a travel agent to her (we carry a supply of her cards). Our travel group continues to grow we now have her plan our Sandals vacation for 10. We cannot encourage you to turn your plans over to her enough - you will be well taken care of.

Penny did a great job with my daughter's destination wedding at Dream's Riviera. She had a few curve balls due to changes of guests. She handled them like a pro as some guests were very hard to deal with. Penny has been handling our travels for years and wouldn't use anyone else.
We have used Penny Sheldon Travel for several years now and Penny always goes above and beyond to make sure every detail of our trip is top notch. She finds us the best rates and is always available to answer any questions whether it be before we leave or even if we are already at the resort.

Penny Sheldon Travel has consistently given excellent advice and travel support. It is so reassuring when travelling out of the country to have someone in the travel industry working on your behalf when a problem occurs. Their agents have been to many resorts and can give you firsthand information to enhance your vacation. I have used Penny Sheldon Travel since 2003 and highly recommend their services.
