Elizabeth's Full Bio

Growing up, I had dreams of traveling the world. From family camping trips to an exchange trip to Germany in high school to planning spring breaks in college, I took every opportunity I could to get out and see the world. The first time I found VIP Vacations and looked at their website, I was floored. It was evident that the ladies and gentlemen at VIP have a passion for the work they do and for providing the best experiences possible for their clients. This was a place I wanted to work at. Once I had the opportunity to join the VIP team, I jumped at it! Becoming a travel agent at VIP Vacations allowed me to merge my two passions – travel & planning – and the best part is that I work with an amazing team who has the same passion!

Since starting at VIP Vacations, I’ve increased my “Countries to Collect” count to 14 and I’ve been taking every chance I can to add to my list. One of my favorite trips has been traveling to St. Lucia and staying at Sandals Regency La Toc for my own honeymoon just last year – it was truly an experience I will never forget!

While my role at VIP is mostly in the Weddings & Groups departments, I love helping clients plan their next getaway, family trip, or honeymoon too!

I can wait to help you plan your next trip and make your vacation an experience you will never forget!

Can’t wait for more stamps on my passport!

Stephanie Joseph - Dreams Sapphire Destination Wedding Testimonial

We had the best time and are so glad we chose dreams sapphire, as well as VIP. It was a great resort. We loved that the rooms were spaced out in the tropical atmosphere but everything else was close together with the pool, bars, lobby and restaurants.

Everything with the wedding was great. Carmen, our coordinator went above and beyond for each event.

VIP went above our expectations with booking us and all of our guests. You all were so informative and made the process so easy for our group! You(Mac) were great, along with Ryan and Liz. We appreciate you all!

Thanks again for everything and look forward to working with you all again.

Paulina Guerero - Sandals Antigua Destination Wedding Guest Testimonial

The wedding and trip was safe and amazing. It was really beautiful. My favorite memory of the trip was the Catermeran boat ride with sandals and the wedding of course. So much delicious food was served. I liked the grounds of the resort the most, it’s a lil older but the pools and grounds were super beautiful and refreshing. It was truly just pure Caribbean vibes and paradise .

You were overall super helpful in our planning and can’t thank you enough. We were accommodated quite well at Sandals . As of now no immediate plans for a sandals vacation but I would certainly consider it later in the next year or two with my own trips in mind.

Thanks so much for all your help.

Damion and I can't thank you enough for helping us navigate our destination wedding. We appreciate all that you did for our large group! We know it isn't easy trying to accommodate everyone's requests so we thank you for doing your best in making everyone comfortable. You guys were really great! Our Wedding went off without a hitch and we can't thank you enough. Our room was absolutely beautiful and our travel was easy and fast. We were surprised at how great everything turned out! All the behind the scenes details didn't go unnoticed.

Thank you!

Alexandra Murray - Group Travel to Hard Rock Riviera Maya

Everything was just so easy, from departure to return. We loved the little private beaches at the Hard Rock - we spent most of our days sitting there enjoying the sun and calm waters.

Everyone was so helpful and made everything so easy - our personal assistant helped accommodate all our our guests even booking dinner for all 20+ guests most night. Staff and food was amazing.

We went to see the Micheal Jackson concert at Hard Rock, Reed was able to book him two days later to perform for my bday party. I am his number one fan! The party planner Yolanda was the absolute best.

Liz took care of everything for my whole group and not a single person had any complaints.

Reed Murray - Group Travel to Hard Rock Riviera Maya

Working with VIP - out this gate this was a very positive experience for everyone involved, including myself as the group coordinator.
From my end in the planning phase, you and your team were very timely, responsive, and informative. Requests and adjustments were handled quickly. The process went well whether communication was over the phone or via email.
In the booking phase, everyone in the group had clear and timely communication, and I heard only good things about the experience
In the travel phase, my measure of success is that not one person reached out to me or my wife regarding any issue with their travel or accommodations. Which means that there were either no issues, or any problems were handled promptly and properly by your team. Excellent all around.

Lauren Moyer - Wedding Guest at Beaches Turks & Caicos

We really just enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with multiple family members! It was nice to be at a resort that was adult and kid friendly! We really enjoyed the beautiful water while on the beach! The pool was always a fun spot too! It was nice to be able to explore new restaurants and areas of the resort each day.

Nicole & Malcolm Railey - Wedding at Beaches Turks & Caicos

Working with Vacations by VIP really helped with the stress of planning a destination wedding. My initial call was with Jennifer and you can tell she cares greatly about people having a smooth experience during their destination wedding. After booking my wedding, Liz took over as my wedding consultant and was very responsive. I am not the type of bride who really looked forward to planning her wedding, because I would get overwhelmed with the amount of options. Having Liz to guide me and advise me through the process made it much easier. She also made sure to keep me on track with timelines, as I definitely procrastinated on submitting my final decisions for the big day (such as food and decor).

The biggest bonus of using them though was how much easier it makes your time as a bride when you aren't having to deal with answering all your guests' questions in regards to the travel timelines and the resort. If my friends had questions about pricing and such I was able to just send them VIP's contact information and not have that on my plate. For that reason alone, I highly recommend using VIP. But all the agents at VIP are very responsive, friendly and genuinely want to make this process as smooth as it can be. Thank you again, Liz and everyone at VIP for all your help, especially after having to reschedule my wedding because of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Becky Huss– Wedding Guest at Unico 20º87º

This was such an amazing experience!

My favorite memory is Jorden's face when Megan was walking down the isle.
I also loved seeing all the iguanas at the resort.

Gabrielle Rodriguez & Efrain Fournier – Wedding at Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana in Punta Cana

My husband and I can’t thank you guys over at VIP enough for all of your help in putting our wedding together ! Everything was PERFECT and we owe a lot of that to you guys over at VIP. From the initial call to literally the day before our wedding VIP never stopped helping us and we are very grateful!

I’d like to especially thank Justin and Liz for all of their help. I know I probably gave poor Justin a few headaches but he always went above and beyond to help us and make sure our wedding was perfect and all of our guests were happy. Liz as well, thank you guys so so much!

We LOVED the resort , I told the staff there they should do more in showing everything they have to offer on the internet. The hospitality is like no other , there are activities everyday that everyone can take advantage of.  We were there over Halloween and it was SO FUN! The decor and Halloween activities were very impressive .

We did do a lot of fun things , we visited scape park, visited saona island & monkey land , some of my guests went on the ATV rides (we had so much fun on all of the excursions) . The resort also has a water park included which in itself felt like a whole other excursion . The Spa….to die for !

We would absolutely recommend this resort , whether it’s a wedding or recreational the resort is gorgeous the food is amazing and the service is amazing. The resort does not have much of a night life , if people are going to party this is not where one should go but for guests looking to relax and have an amazing stay this is definitely the place to go.

VIP went ABOVE AND BEYOND, I can’t thank you guys enough!!!!

Danielle Mainardi & Brett Mickinac – Wedding at Dreams Natura Resort & Spa in Mexico

We loved the resort! The pools were amazing, food was excellent and the service was phenomenal. We didn’t do any extra activities besides visiting the spa, and it was the most amazing experience I would recommend the massages and hydrotherapy to anyone who goes there. I would definitely recommend this property and I would go back in the future for sure!

VIP has been amazing through this whole experience, between moving dates and people canceling last minute you guys met all my expectations and we got some perks that I was extremely satisfied with! Emily, Liz and Robert were awesome from start to finish and the whole experience was great, once I got there everything was taken care of and I didn’t have to worry about anything!

The team at dreams was slow to respond but the wedding met all my expectations and I would recommend others to get married there. I didn’t feel any stress everything came together perfectly and I couldn’t of asked for a better day. The team at dreams even threw in some extras that we didn’t ask for but definitely added to the experience and it was amazing.

Anthony Rando & Brittany Zebro – Vacations to Mexico & Iceland

I can't say enough great things about VIP Vacations. We've used them twice now, the first time for an unforgettable group trip to Mexico, and then recently for a couples' getaway to Iceland. Both trips were incredible. Our travel designer, Liz, took the time to meet with us and learn what we wanted out of our vacations. She researched and reviewed every option, and created a very personalized experience. She gave us travel tips about visiting a foreign country, and even during our trip she followed up with email reminders about the times for our excursions. I highly recommend VIP Vacations for the smoothest, easiest vacation planning you'll ever have.

Ashley & Benjamin Meyer – Honeymoon at Sandals Royal Caribbean, Jamaica

We had an awesome time at the Sandals Royal Caribbean. It was a very laid back and relaxing, which was perfect for a honeymoon. We did do a couples massage that was awesome. We went to the private island a few times, but for the most part we just relaxed by the pool. The food was great and there was a lot of options for dinner. One thing we noted was it would have been nice if they opened some of the restaurants during the day because lunch options were more limited (but that was only a minor complaint). We went to the Montego Bay resort our last night for dinner at Tokyo Joes. Montego Bay was very modern and looked beautiful, but we were glad we stayed at the Royal Caribbean because of the plane situation. Also it was absolutely great working with you and being able to take one more thing off of our plate while wedding planning, so thank you SO much!! You did great :)

Amanda Morgandale – Honeymoon at El Dorado Seaside Suites, Mexico

OMG thank you soo much for everything! Our honeymoon was absolutely amazing!! One of the best times of our life. :)

El Dorado Seaside Suites was fantastic! It was everything expected and so much more! I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone going down there and if we went down again that's where I would stay. VIP Vacations was great and Liz you went above and beyond with your help and patience through all the emails! Everything was so stress free. Amazing! We got our room upgraded! It was beautiful! All the workers at the resort were so helpful and went above and beyond! The excursions were out of this world! The tour guides were great and the places we visited were one in a million and an experience we will never forget!

I know when we want to travel again Europe will be the next stop, hopefully! Scotland is at the top of the list! I will definitely be in touch when we are ready to travel again! ;)

Again, thank you so much for everything you did!

Alexandra & Casey Cooperman – Honeymoon at Sandals Ochi & Disney

We had an amazing wedding day followed by 5 perfect days in Jamaica and then the magical week in Disney! We enjoyed every single moment of the last 2 weeks and we already anxious for more traveling! You were so helpful and you booked us a honeymoon we will always remember! Sandals was GORGEOUS! From the moment we arrived, we were in pure heaven! All of the people working there were so nice and we had a blast! I could go on for hours about how happy we are that we went there, but to sum it all up, it was blissful! Luckily, we weren't sad when it was time to leave though because we knew we had 7 days in Disney! Mike booked us some pretty awesome dinners at each park and we loved running around Disney as newlyweds in our Mickey and Minnie bridal ears! The entire trip gave us memories we will have for the rest of our lives!! Thank you so much!!

Stephanie Nichols – Honeymoon at Sandals Ochi & Sandals Royal Caribbean

Elizabeth Moran is an absolutely amazing travel agent. She went far above and beyond the normal duties of a travel agent. Our honeymoon was the first time John & I had traveled out of the country, and we were both nervous with international travel. Liz was in constant communication with us from day 1, keeping on top of deadlines, sending us reminders (which were SO helpful, especially since we often lost sight of certain deadlines in the chaos of wedding planning), in addition to being phone/appointment available whenever we needed questions answered. John and I are overly thorough, so Liz was patient with our millions of questions, and constant emails. She scheduled our flights, as well as booked our excursions and travel insurance for us! Additionally, when we had a miscommunication with our Club Concierge about the direct transfer from Sandals Ochi & Sandals Royal Caribbean, she called her contacts & made sure everything was straightened out, resulting in a smooth, hassle-free honeymoon. We absolutely LOVED both resorts! The staff was incredibly welcoming at both Sandals Ochi & Sandals Royal Caribbean, they made it their goal to make us feel like we were at our home away from home. Jamaicans truly lived up to their slogan of "One Love". Both resorts were gorgeous and pristine, the food was beyond amazing, and the excursions were unbelievable. We are very grateful for all Liz’s help, and are currently in the process of booking another trip to Sandals through her, for our anniversary next year!

Annmarie Cornell – Honeymoon at Valentin Imperial Maya

We had an amazing time! The Valentin was even better than we expected. The photos do not do it justice! We liked it so much, we would love to go back in the next couple years! We at least would like to try :)

You have been exceptional! Your service had been above and beyond. We would love to travel more with friends and will definitely be getting in touch with you if so!

Thank you again for all your help! Below are just a couple cool pics from our trip:)

Kelly Mirales – Vacation to Ireland

It was a blast, and the best part is it was a total breeze! No stress at all from planning to the actual trip! I can't tell you enough how much I appreciated your help. You were able to find us a tour that allowed us to experience most of the country without having to worry about transportation or finding a million different accommodations. Our tour guide was amazing, and made the early mornings worth while. He was funny and extremely knowledgeable about so much from the history to the culture. One of our favorite parts was a trip to a working Irish farm where we baked scones and later enjoyed them with fresh cream & homemade jam! That was a nice off the beaten path experience, and it was great that the entire tour wasn't solely touristy destinations. Wish we had more time to explore more!!

Thanks again! Will definitely be seeking your counsel for all future trips :)

Sarah Forand – Honeymoon at Sandals Ochi

Sandals was AMAZING! We loved the food! And we loved that the portions were a bit smaller so that we could order many items and not have any waste. I personally also loved the RUM! The whole experience was amazing. We’re so glad that we got this butler service. Both of our butlers were great, but a special shout-out to Sa-J. He went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time! One thing that was really noticeable were the people employed as “playmakers”- I’ve never seen such a role before, and they really REALLY made the trip so much fun. Literally everything was lovely. We are so happy and would DEFINITELY recommend Sandals Ochi.  And we’re so pleased that we went through VIP- the personal touches (not sure if the hand delivery of documents was more of a family benifit :)), but it really eased the stress of pre-wedding planning to know that we didn’t have to lift a finger to plan for the honeymoon.
