Our Founder’s Story
Our owner and founder, Crystal Smiley, began her career in the travel industry in 1998 with the trusted AAA Travel organization as this was a way for Crystal to pursue her passion for traveling as she raised her family.
Crystal had experience as an extremely rounded travel advisor starting her career booking corporate travel and then added leisure travel servicing clients in the Central PA area. She established a client database that encompasses travelers that live all over the United States and are rather loyal.
It was not long before Crystal saw an immediate need to book small group travel (less than 30 travelers) and decided to take the leap of faith to branch out on her own and launched Journease Travel Specialists in 2015 with an office in Carlisle, PA.
Sandy Walker came on board with the newly formed boutique agency almost immediately bringing her years of expertise in European vacations and exotic destination travel, as well as booking cruises for her loyal client base. Additional advisors were hired to book leisure travel in the niches of Caribbean travel and Disney.
Fast forward to 2020, the full-service agency consists of its owner, advisors, an administrative assistant and is still growing to add new advisors to the team.
Crystal’s innovation really comes to life as she added multi-generational travel as a specialty in recent years, gifting families the ability to travel together and create an unforgettable experience that will live in the minds forever for not only the grandparents but the children.
The agency crafts customized experiences that include day trips, U.S. travel, international travel, and cruises that are available to be booked for up to 30 travelers utilizing trusted travel partners and maximizing the agency’s combined 50+ years of experience. Each travel advisor holds various designations and certifications making each advisor a trusted travel resource to its clients.
Providing a personal contact number to clients that is available 24/7 is part of the customer experience that is provided to Journease Travel Specialist clients that really sets them apart as an extraordinary benefit in case of emergency because no matter how hard we can plan for things, disaster can occur, and they want their clients to be well taken care of.
Crystal has big plans for the agency which include adding on additional advisors at a time in which there is an imminent need to work with someone with experience that is up to date on travel restrictions due to social distancing requirements. She looks forward to mentoring other advisors to develop their careers in the travel industry allowing them to see all the beautiful places in the world while making dreams come true for clients!
In closing, Journease Travel Specialists is taking Central PA by storm as an agency really specializing in niches that are often ignored by competitors.
