    In this season of thanksgiving, all of us at Globe Travel would like to express our gratitude to our clients for trusting us to help you make some of your most precious memories through travel. We love making your travel dreams come true!


    And thank you to our many travel partners and friends for your support of our business.


    I’m going to be taking a break from the blog for a couple of weeks…because I’m going on vacation! Yes, I’m going on AmaWaterways’ Christmas Markets on the Rhine cruise with Globe Travel friends. I’ll tell you all about it when I get back…



  • Passports and Visas

    Two critical travel documents that you will likely need if you travel internationally are a passport and a visa. Let’s look at the differences between these two documents.


    What are passports and visas?


    Your passport is a document issued by your home country to show proof of your citizenship. It is used to re-enter your country after traveling internationally. It is also required by many countries for you to enter as a visitor.


    A visa, on the other hand, is issued by the country you wish to visit. It authorizes you to be in the country as a visitor, usually for a specific time period that corresponds to your planned travel dates. It is generally a stamp in your passport. Not every country requires a visa for entry.


    How do I get them?


    In order to apply for a US passport, you need to submit a form and a photo, and provide proof of US citizenship.


    In order to apply for a visa, you generally need to submit your passport, a photo, and a visa application to the appropriate government agency for the country you wish to visit. Usually that is an embassy or a consulate in your own country. Your passport will be sent back to you with your visa.


    Both of these can be lengthy processes, so you need to start well before you want to travel. There are also fees associated with getting both a passport and a visa. 


    Those are the basics about passports and visas. The most important thing for you to know is that if you are planning an international trip, Globe Travel can help you determine the travel documents you need, as well as help you secure (or even expedite) passports and visas. Give us a call!

    Have you ever wanted to be like Phileas Fogg from Around the World in Eighty Days? Traveling around the world is a great opportunity to experience other cultures.


    There are numerous opportunities for traversing the world. Most often, it’s done by plane, train, or ship. Some cruise lines offer around-the-world itineraries that explore some of the most famous—as well as less famous—ports around the globe.


     If you’d rather go by air and land, Globe Travel can help you coordinate various adventures that enable you to visit multiple destinations all in one trip. This ultimately saves you time and money on travel between destinations as you explore the globe or even a continent. For example, maybe you want to spend a week on safari and then go to the Taj Mahal before cruising the Greek Isles.


    If traveling around the world is on your bucket list, come see us to help you plan the journey of a lifetime—that hits all the places important to you.  It is sure to be your most memorable vacation!
