At Beacon Vacations our goal is to provide you with the best travel opportunities available, while staying within your budget.  We understand that the cheapest price is usually not the best value and many times will not give you the experience you desire. 

We want to work with you to ensure that you get vacation or business travel plans that meet not only your needs but exceed your expectations.  We will be your partner from the beginning of the planning process until after your return home.  You will have a dedicated travel agent rather than an automated service from an online company.

We do have an online booking site if you prefer, however we are still your partner and will assist you personally with any needs or questions.

We know your time is valuable and we are here to help.  We can work with you to plan your dream vacation, a family trip to Disney, a weekend getaway or a simple business trip.  We are not contracted with any travel providers which means we don't book your trip based on the cost and commission, we book it based on what is best for you!

If you are ready to begin planning your getaway,  give us a call at 712-256-4781.

"Terry helped plan my spring getaway with my daughter to Cozumel, Mexico and it was a huge success. She was very knowledgeable and helpful on all aspects of the trip. Plus she is just a really nice person to work with so it makes it fun. I would highly recommend her and Beacon Vacations."

"My family took a weekend trip to Kansas City. Terry booked a hotel for us at the same rate that we saw advertised online - however - when we checked it at the hotel, I noticed a distinct difference in how we were treated. Terry had set up a few simple things with the hotel to make our stay better - extra pillows, room with a view, etc. When we asked about an upgrade to a suite, the hotel went out of their way to accommodate us. I am quite sure that Terry's involvement in booking our room made a big difference in how well our trip went. When traveling I really like having an expert to help 'navigate.' Thanks Terry!"
