On November 7, the Travel Agency is having its 4th annual Test Drive the World Luxury Travel Show at The Ritz Carlton, Amelia Island with 27 travel suppliers sharing their unique tours, expeditions, destinations and educations.

This year in addition to some longstanding favorites, such as REGENT SEVEN SEAS, SEABOURN, SILVERSEA, CRYSTAL CRUISES, TAUCK, MICATO SAFARIS, LINDBLAD and CANYON RANCH, the Travel Agency introduces some really interesting niche companies such as Italian Dream Inc, Horizon and Company, Rocky Mountaineer, Natural Habitat, Orion Expedition Cruises, Compagnie Du Ponant Yacht Cruises, Avalon Waterways River Cruises, Hyatt Hotels introducing their fabulous Andaz Experience, are a few of the new companies exhibiting at the show!

The attached invitation shows all the companies that will be represented and then check back on the Travel Agency’s blog site: for more details on the companies and special offers for the show!

As in previous years, the show is also a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Nassau County and a $10 per person donation will be collected to benefit the Club. You may pay at the door or mail/drop off your $10 ahead of time at THE TRAVEL AGENCY on the corner of 14th Street and Amelia Park, for a quicker entry at the show. The Travel Agency has been benefactor to the Boys and Girls Club of Nassau County for many years and is proud of the Club’s new facility just completed on Lime Street behind the Southside School? The Roberts Learning & Achievement Center is a wonderful asset for our community and will officially be opening on Sunday October 14!

We here at SearchAmelia have been visiting the Test Drive the World Show since its first rendition in 2009 and we have always been impressed by the quality of the show and the way the Ritz dazzles us with their service, wine, beer, soft drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Also the many price drawings add a momentous attraction to the show, as does the Vacation Photo Contest that was introduced last year.

The winners of this year’s photo contest will be announced during the show and their pictures will be on display! If you have not already, please get your photo entries in to Angela by Oct 15!  There is more information on the blogsite or you may call the agency 261 5914 for entry forms to be sent or emailed to you.

RSVP by sending an email or by calling 904 261 5914. Please feel free to pass this invitation along to fellow travelers who are interested in Test Driving the World of Luxury Travel.
