Gotta Go Travel sets sail with new location in Orillia

Owner Corry Ticknor celebrating new site Oct. 25


Corry Ticknor, professional travel consultant and independent owner of Gotta Go Travel, an affiliate of Travel Professionals International (TPI), is proud to announce the expansion of her new storefront and the significance of TPI's upcoming 25th-anniversary milestone.

Ticknor and Gotta Go Travel TPI are dedicated to providing their clients with personal solutions whether you travel for business or pleasure. They handle every aspect of your trip from air, hotels, cars, activities, tours and more, offering a personal touch to your unique travel experience.

Having been in the industry for many years, Ticknor has focused on creating memorable family, group, cruise and honeymoon vacations for clients around the world.

As part of Canada’s largest network of independent travel consultants, she is backed by a significant and reliable network of preferred travel partners and knowledgeable travel professionals that support her at every stage in the travel planning process.

“We have access to travel partners around the globe. This means I can provide you the best itinerary that meets your needs,” Ticknor says.

Exclusive cruise sales or booking incentives are just some of the special extras that Gotta Go Travel TPI can offer from these preferred partnerships and our strong relationship with Virtuoso, the world’s leading luxury network that provides only the best of the best in travel for affluent travellers.

Travel-planning skills not only come from her years of experience, but also her hard work in obtaining valuable travel training and credentials. Ticknor has earned the following designations: certified travel manager, certified travel counsellor, certified cruise counsellor, authorized Disney vacation planner, destination wedding and honeymoon specialist, Thailand and Hawaii travel specialist and many more.

Ticknor is celebrating the expansion and grand opening of her Gotta Go Travel TPI storefront, at 3A-575 West St. S., in the Willow Court Plaza, on Oct. 25. The grand opening will have several local dignitaries in attendance.

“Baby steps. Could I have done this overnight? Sure. Would I still be in business? Probably not. I have taken small steps to get to where I am now, making mistakes along the way where I have learnt a great deal about myself and this industry. Now taking this big leap in opening a travel agency storefront location is a dream come true.

“I have found, the last few years especially, the public needs and wants more one-on-one time in planning their vacations with true travel professionals. The internet can be very overwhelming. I love being a professional travel consultant, with emotional intellect. That’s something you just can’t get from a computer.”

Educating the public is important more than ever; it seems the public thinks it will cost extra to use a travel agent/agency and for some, that may be the case, but it won’t cost you any extra to use Gotta Go Travel TPI for your vacations and cruises.

Not only that, but Ticknor states, “I truly have my client’s best interest in mind. It’s often said, when you are sick you see your doctor, when your vehicle needs repair you see a mechanic, and travel planning should be no different – you should seek the assistance of a professional travel consultant for all your vacation planning.

“I take my travel business very seriously. I work for clients who sometimes save for years to take the vacation.  I work hard for them and they are trusting me with their hard-earned dollars to give them a dream holiday. I want each vacation that I plan and reserve for my clients to be a vacation dream come true.”

TPI is celebrating its 25th anniversary next year, a significant milestone in the travel industry, and Gotta Go Travel TPI could not be any prouder to be a part of this extraordinary team of Canada’s leading network of travel agents.

“The support I receive from Travel Professionals International has been instrumental in getting me and Gotta Go Travel to where we are today. Here’s to another 25 years!”
