Meet Carrie:

What do you do when the travel bug has bit you? 


If you are Carrie Hansen, you start your own travel agency.  Getaway with Carrie is a full service travel agency specializing in personal travel.  When she was young Carrie used to spend hours flipping page by page in her father’s atlas – studying each country and dreaming of all the places she wanted to visit.  Growing up the family vacations consisted mostly of lake vacations in the Great Lakes region which left Carrie anxious to see more of the world.  As Carrie’s own travels started she became frustrated with the box travel packages and lack of personal service in a digital world.  In 2016 Carrie opened Getaway with Carrie with the slogan You Dream It….We Book It because Carrie believes every person’s vacation is unique to them and should be treated as such. Taking her love of travel planning seriously, Carrie studied for and earned the distinguished Certified Travel Associate (CTA) designation from the Travel Institute, the travel industry’s oldest education organization.


Carrie’s travels have taken her to Europe, the Caribbean and many places across the United States.  Carrie works tirelessly to find travel that meets every budget and client’s dream.  Carrie believes every destination has something to offer that we don’t see in our daily routines.  There is so much more to life than the area in which we live, there is so much to see and experience. Take the trip!!! At the end of the day our most cherished possessions will be the memories we make!!

So whether you are planning that 50th anniversary trip, honeymoon, family getaway, or a solo cruise, let Carrie find the perfect getaway for you!!  You Dream It….We Book It!!
