As we continue our TierOne Travel Specialist series, we find ourselves continuously inspired by our amazing team and this week is no exception.
We are pleased to introduce Angela Kibsey.
Angela has been in the travel industry for 27 years. She specializes in Sun & Beach, River Cruises, Arts & Culture, Luxury and Destination Wedding travel.
For Angela, staying motivated is easy. Her passion is fueled by her love of travel, discovering new places, meeting new people, trying new foods and experiencing different cultures. This has enabled her to creatively design unforgettable vacations for her clients.
Working with Angela is a destination bride’s dream. She was once a destination bride herself and understands the fine details that make the special day come together seamlessly. Her extensive experience with large groups and event planning make her an ideal travel specialist.
Angela is also a Certified Sandals/Beaches Specialist. Sandals has over a dozen different all-inclusive resorts in prime tropical locations, such as Jamaica, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Antigua, Grenada and Barbados. This is the perfect way to wrap up a dream wedding.
Q: What makes you a unique travel specialist?
A: I’ve been in the travel industry for over 25 years now. My love of travel, discovering new places, meeting new people, trying new foods and experiencing different cultures has helped keep my passion alive. I really enjoy working one-on-one with clients to determine exactly what their wants and needs are. My goal is to make your vacation as relaxing and fun as possible by understanding what you want, then taking that information to create your very own personal vacation experience.
Q: What is your favourite destination and why?
A: Europe is one of my favourite destinations. Europe is very easy to travel to and to get from country to country once you get there. Europe has a diverse history and culture and has something for everyone. The food and wine, the people and the architecture are some of the reasons I love it. You get to walk amidst living history.
Q: Where would your top destination recommendation be for couples?
A: My top destination for couples would be the Caribbean. Sun, sand and beach – need I say more? Some 5-star resorts feature 5 star Michelin chefs and the food and wine is divine. There is a variety of accommodation, including over-the-water bungalows! The friendly smiles, the food, the festivals and sunsets are just a few reasons I recommend Europe. Something for every person and every budget.
Q: What is your favourite lesson learned from travel?
A: I have discovered that no matter where I go, people are friendly. Yes, you need to be aware you are in a foreign country, but people are still people. For the most part, people are nice. Focus on the kind people you get to meet along the way. From a stranger that helps you when you are lost in the London tube, to people who offer suggestions, to the best German restaurant in town. People are usually open-minded and helpful.

“Angela Kibsey is one amazing travel agent. As a bride who had no clue but only to have a destination wedding, Angela took care of all my needs. From the first initial meeting she made me felt like we were old friends. She considered our budget, time constraints, our guests and personal likes/ dislikes. Just from one meeting I knew I was leaving our group trip to a person I could really trust and what was even better that she herself had a destination wedding and could relate to all my concerns and expectations. She is there to answer every e-mail, phone call and a million of questions if need be. I truly am so thankful I had her to help plan our wedding travels, she has taken care of everything in regards to travel and makes my guests feel so welcomed. If you are looking for first class service, above and beyond your expectations and most important of all honesty especially when it comes to prices – Angela is the perfect fit for you! Thank you so much Angela, you are amazing and will always be a pleasure to work with!”
