I’d love to create one of those fond memories that bring a smile to your face when you hear a song, or look at photos.

Alison's Full Bio

Have you ever heard the expression, "find a career that you love and it will never seem like work"? That statement is often easier said than done. As I began my journey through college, I realized that what one enjoys isn't necessarily easy to find in a career. I graduated from Moravian College in 2010 with a degree in Psychology and Philosophy and then went on for my masters at DeSales University in Criminal Justice which I received in May 2012. Having spent the last 6 years of my life focused on my education, it became very clear to me that to truly have a content life, I would need to be passionate in whatever career I embarked on. If I look back at my life, my childhood is filled with wonderful memories of my family traveling to different destinations both near and far. While in college, I had the opportunity to study in Ireland. During my time there, I explored London and the UK and was able to see hidden gems of the Irish countryside. As a proud sister of the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority, I was able to attend their national conferences in New Mexico and California. The thought of exploring somewhere new has always excited me and traveling back to the places I had already been to, almost makes me feel like I’m going back to visit an old friend. With my background in psychology, I put myself on the "couch" and realized that the joy I have always experienced journeying to far off destinations would translate into a career I would love! My love of travel, my zest to learn new things, and my internal drive to help others, led me to VIP Vacations. VIP Vacations has a reputation that oozes guidance, expertise, and commitment to assist others; all of which are qualities I aspire to emulate.

VIP encourages their agents to become “experts” in specific destinations. This expertise can greatly assist in providing a fabulous experience on your cherished vacation. I am proud to say that I am VIP’s Aruba specialist as I have not only traveled there many times, but I am also an Aruba travel certified agent. Having lived in Ireland, I believe that I can truly assist clients in anything “Ireland” . If you are yearning for a vacation to visit the famous "Mouse" or are simply wanting to revive your inner "child", I can provide you with many tips based on my countless visits to Walt Disney World.

Thanks very much for working with us. We had the time of our lives! Joel loved Spain and I always did! Barcelona is the most amazing city I have ever been to. We had everything! Ancient towns, amazing architecture and amazing beaches. Enjoy the pics.

We used VIP Vacations to book our honeymoon. Our travel agent was Alison
Murphy. She was awesome! We literally did not have to do anything. She did
everything for us from booking our flights to booking our room at the
resort. She was very informative and answered any questions we had. She also
made great suggestions.

We had a flight delay and had to use the after hour number to alter our
reservation. The lady we spoke to after hours was also very helpful! She
called the resort and altered our reservation for us. Once again we didn't
have to do anything but contact them.

This was our first time using VIP Vacations but definitely won't be the last
time!

Hey Alison!

 

Hope this e-mail finds you well! Just wanted to say thank you so much for working with Brian and I on our honeymoon. We LOVED Saint Lucia! Everything was spectacular, and having you with us along the way to answer any questions or concerns was worth it! I am already thinking where can we go for our one year anniversary... Talk to you soon!

 

Best,

Alison,

Your service and attention to detail was impeccable throughout our planning process, I can’t thank you enough.  The package you had put together made everything stress-free and easy!! Larren and I had a wonderful time on our honeymoon!!  We enjoyed every minute of it and already started discussing our plans on returning to Sandals Whitehouse!

We met a couple there that have gone every year for 8 years.  I can see why; the butler service was excellent, the room location was perfect, and the food and drinks were incredible. I HIGHLY recommend the Catamaran cruise to anyone going to Sandals Whitehouse!  It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip, totally worth the cost!

I will definitely be recommending VIP vacations to everyone I know.

Thanks again for everything Alison, you’re the best!

Hi Alison!

The honeymoon was amazing! We had a great time and it was depressing to leave. We stayed on the resort the entire time, as there was a ton of stuff to do there. Everyone was so nice and helpful, which made our experience even better. The food at all of the restaurants was top notch, everything we ate was terrific. It rained the first two days, but it didn't really hold us back. We still relaxed on the beach and at the pool, as it was still 80-85 degrees! The rest of the time it was mostly sunny and very warm. The resort was at about 40% capacity (per a Sandals worker), which was nice for us since we never had to wait for food or fight for beach chairs.

We had such a great time that we are considering going back there again very very soon. We will keep you posted if we do. We definitely enjoyed ourselves and it was very relaxing and enjoyable. Like I said, we are hoping to go back again soon. The all-inclusive idea took a day or so to get used to.

Thanks again for all your help. When we decide to go again, we will let you know. We were very happy with your services and recommendations.

Hi Alison!

Our honeymoon was great. The Riu Palace was beautiful and everyone was very friendly. We ended up not doing any excursions because we got lazy :-) . We laid on the beach/pool all day and just relaxed. I would definitely go back there multiple times!

Hi Alison!

John and I both had a wonderful time on our honeymoon. We just wanted to thank you for planning us such a wonderful vacation. It was our first one, so the whole process of planning seemed overwhelming. You made the entire process a breeze and we will most definitely be using VIP Vacations again.

Cheeca Lodge and Spa was absolutely amazing. We felt like we were in paradise. The grounds are breath taking and the staff was so friendly and helpful. We had an amazing time! Our room was gorgeous as well. Our favorite thing about it was the outdoor soaking tub on the balcony. We were up on the top floor and had an amazing view of the island. The food was delicious at the restaurants inside the resort. We also had a great time exploring the nearby towns for new restaurants to try. We also spent one day at the Theater of the Sea where I got to swim with the dolphins which was an amazing experience. Cheeca had plenty of things to do that we wouldn’t have needed to leave the resort, but we figured some exploration was good for our first time. The pools at Cheeca were amazing and they offered many trips and activities. We went on a sunset cruise, snorkeling trip, and a historic tour of one of the keys. All three trip were organized, informative, and fun. We also played golf, went kayaking, and rented movies at the resort which was included in our daily resort fees. Everything was perfect and before the trip was over we were talking about wanting to go back. I’m sure you will be hearing from us again to plan a return trip.

We couldn’t be more satisfied with Cheeca and VIP Vacations and we will definitely be returning customers! Thank you again for helping us have such an amazing honeymoon!

VIP Vacations family vacation to the Royal in Playa Del Carmen.

We had a great time at TheRoyal Playa Del Carmen! The resort was extremely beautiful, had awesome service, and the food was some of the best that I have had at an all inclusive resort.

Alison with VIP was a pleasure to work with and made planning the trip easy and stress free! She was very accommodating to our group which had people flying from different places in the US on different days, and was also very prompt when answering all my emails.

We even got a great deal that I couldn’t find at any other travel agency or website (I did some research on my own first). Everything was totally organized from the moment we stepped off the plane.

I would most definitely use VIP vacations again for another trip in the future! I highly recommend them for a smooth, stress free planning process and vacation

We had a PHENOMENAL honeymoon at the Nassau Sandals resort in the Bahamas! We cannot wait try another Sandals resort in the future. It was so relaxing and fun, the atmosphere was great, and the accommodations were perfect. We have already recommended this resort to all of our friends who are getting married in the future.
We worked with Alison from VIP Vacations and she was amazing! She went through a lot of quotes and back and forth with us when we were trying to choose where we wanted to go. She was very professional and replied to us almost instantly when we had questions. Without her, or your company, we would not have ended up with such a fabulous and memorable honeymoon!
I have attached a few pictures, please feel free to use any of them on your FB page- it is amazing to me that these picture were not enhanced at all, the resort is really that beautiful!
Thank you again for everything you did to make our honeymoon so special for us!
Nathaniel and Marie Bishton - Richmond, VA - Honeymoon at Sandals Royal Bahamian

They gave use two bottles of champagne, and they also gave us a Balinese bed on my actual birthday with private service we are positive it's because of VIP's involvement and your help on the back end so thank you. The food was amazing, the variety of people were great, the foam party and nightlife were spectacular. It was the perfect dynamic of clientele. The pools and activities were so fun. We could see certain areas of the resort (not top shelf alcohol, no wait service at the pool) where it makes perfect sense considering the affordable lower price, but overall our vacation was great and we are sad to leave.

Thanks for all your help! We had a wonderful time!
