Contrino Travel Inc provides Service From the Heart. We don't just "sell" you travel, we learn about your preferences to ensure that your expectations are met, or better yet, far exceeded. We do this by staying current attending trade shows and doing site inspections of various properties in varying destinations. In addition to my many designations, both destination and brand-wise (earning specialist titles with Avalon River Cruises, Vegas, Disney, Sandals/Beaches, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Hawaiian Islands and Italy to name a few), I am Co-Director of the Staten Island Chapter of NACTA, the National Association of Career Travel Agents and a member of ASTA, the American Society of Travel Agents. In addition to mentoring women in business (WE NYC), I also taught as an Adjunct Professor “How To Start Your Own Home-Based Agency” at the College of Staten Island, am a published author with Ezine and was named one of the Top 25 Agents in 2012.
