Experience Travel is owned and operated by Sue Fiorentini.  I have worked in the travel business for over 25 years, starting at Berger’s Travel Headquarters in 1979.  My love of travel was started much earlier than that by my parents Joe and Lucille Flaherty.  I was privileged to visit most to the United States from the back seat of my parent’s car. Their philosophy was the was more to be learned by traveling than I could learn from 4 walls in a classroom.

My husband and I (occasionally our 3 children) have continued the tradition of travel. We have been fortunate to have cruised the Caribbean, Atlantic and Pacific waters, visited over 7 Islands of the Caribbean and have soaked up sunshine in Hawaii, the Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo, and Costa Rico. We made a pilgrimage to Italy, visiting Rome, Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi Coast and Sicily.

We are proud parents of 3 grown children: Michele, Matthew, and Tony, and 5 beautiful grandchildren: Easton, Payson, Oliver, Logan and Maklyn.  We belong Sacred Heart Church in Granville, Princeton Chamber of Commerce, and the Utica Garden Club.

We opened our agency with the goal to help arrange your travel as if we were making the trip ourselves. We are committed to taking the extra time necessary to answer your questions and research all available options.  We have developed strong personal relationships with our customers and would love the opportunity to assist you in making your travel dreams come true.


Why use a travel agent? What is it going to cost me?

I am often asked “How do travel agents get paid’”?

My tour suppliers pay me and it’s the same price if you booked directly with them or booked thru me.  Apple Vacations, Globus, Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Carnival, and 100’s of other suppliers all pay me to make sure you get the best vacation. I will do the work, find you the best vacation at the best price.  As a bonus, Apple and Funjet will price match the internet, just be sure it's the same hotel, category and flights. 

If you are just booking an airline ticket or a train ticket, unfortunately I do have to charge you a fee. $25 per airline ticket, $5 per person for a train ticket. Just know that I do a lot of leg work for you, checking multiple departure and arrival location and several dates in order to provide the best service for the best price!
