Truly Stress-Free Family Vacations

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes … the big family vacation! As much as I love planning lovey-dovey escapes for couples, I get so excited when I get to work on a family travel itinerary.

Because, after traveling around the world with my own little one, I’ve realized there’s nothing better than traveling to bring your family together. Sure, it may get a little hectic (though I hope to help with that!), but it opens up a whole world of wonder and discovery for your family to explore.

Before my son turned 1 he had stepped foot in three oceans, and now at 5, he’s already checked several international destinations off his “must see” list (which, yes, I may have helped him write). I’ve loved watching him grow into an increasingly confident little explorer—and I’d love to help you plan an inspiring escape with your own family!

The only question is: where to?

Here’s where I can send you:

Enchanting Europe

The glittering Eiffel tower. The gentle green hills of Ireland. The turquoise waters of Greece. There is so much to explore in Europe—and you absolutely can take the kids along! I’ll work with you to design an itinerary that’s eye-opening and culture-focused, while still  being kid-approved and stress free.

Mexico & The Caribbean

Kick back, relax, and finally reconnect on a laid-back beach getaway with your family. I can pair you with a fabulous family-friendly all-inclusive resort that will take care of every last vacation need—fun included! Sink your toes into some stress-free family time and indulge in island magic. 

Riviera Maya Wedding Venues


Soak in the “aloha” spirit in astounding Hawaii. As a certified Hawaii specialist (I’ve been there myself!), I can design a custom, island-hopping itinerary filled with activities tailored to your family. It’s the ideal family island getaway—especially for big multigenerational family escapes—and you don’t even need a passport to experience it all!

The Magic Family Travel Touch

Planning a vacation is tough enough—but planning a vacation with kids? That’s a whole different ball game. Luckily, Bridie Travel is up to the challenge!

Let me take the planning off your already-full plate, so you get a family vacation that strengthens your bonds and brings on the smiles (instead of just adding on stress). I’ll help you narrow down options within your budget for the perfect-fit destination and property—one that both you and the kids will love. Then, I’ll take all the “mental” work out of prepping for your vacation by providing guidance on what to see, do, and even pack on your getaway. 

Need special accommodations or arrangements, like strollers, cribs, or allergy-sensitive dining? I’m on it! I’ll coordinate every last need with your resort or hotel, so you won’t have a worry in the world once you arrive.

love notes from clients

"I have always thought that in the age of the internet I can book my own trips and vacations and that I did not need a travel agent. Man was I wrong!

I have been a bundle of indecision on where to take my daughter for a graduation trip, sorting through websites and tours and getting totally overwhelmed. Then I found Bridie Travel and Megan totally knew the right places and had great options and choices. Her experience with travel makes her tips invaluable. And most importantly she stuck through me through every "what if" or "Can we change this" that I had. Personally I was sick of me and my questions, but Megan was always super helpful and amazingly nice.
I am already thinking of my next trip and I know Megan is the person to help plan it for me."

The S Family

"Megan was very easy to work with and answered all my questions thoroughly. We stayed at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya and the kids could not have had more fun! From the water park, to the american ninja course to the onsite zip lining. We never ran out of things to do. We took one excursion to swim with the dolphins at XCaret and it was great!"

Riviera Maya, Mexico

"We were struggling trying to plan our first trip overseas to Ireland. I searched Google for Chicago area travel agents specializing in Ireland and Megan's name popped up. I called her and she was responsive and delightful from the start. We told her where in Ireland we wanted to travel and she put it all together for us: hotels, our car, tickets to attractions. Our hotels were lovely and couldn't have been better located in each city or town we visited. Megan was organized and had good suggestions for us as well. We definitely could not have made this trip without her expertise!"

The M Family

"I want to sent a big thank you to Megan Amelio from @bridietravel. She helped us book this amazing trip to the Bahamas. She made everything a breeze, including getting us VIP status at the resort, a town car for the airport transfers and recommending our excursion to see the pigs! If you are booking any trips and needs some help, see Megan!"
