GetAway Travel group is the best I mean my trip to Jamaica along with my girls were nothing but great from the beginning to the end! Nikki did an awesome job with answering any questions we had and following through with whatever she said she was going to do! She recommended MoBay to us which was nothing but love avoiding the long lines once we got to Jamaica! Everything went smooth from A-Z and I'm looking forward to many more trips with GetAway Travel Group they are the best!!!!

Me and the wife went on our honeymoon in Ocho Rios Jamaica. Joshua did a great job in helping us choose our destination. He was a wealth of knowledge, professional and courteous. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a getaway.

Last Minute Escape

My last minute escape to Jamaica over Memorial Day weekend was flawless! The VIP service when I landed made sure I didn't wait in a single line and sailed straight to the lounge for a cocktail. My transportation service was already there and ended up planning a VIP excursion just for me based on what I talked to the driver (Duran with Paradise Transportation). The hotel was exactly what I described to Josh Purkett (rustic and non-touristy). I had a lovely view of the beach from my second story cottage. Every detail was pre-arranged so I didn't have to stress at all. I can't thank you enough for the getaway! I love having a travel agency that I can depend on to deliver what I want! Thanks so much Josh!!

True Professionals

Professional, very attentive to details, honest, knowledgeable, patient, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. This is how I describe Team Purkett and the Getaway Travel Group. Nikki has planned several trips for me since 2013. Recently, my family vacationed in Cancun. We felt like royalty upon arrival and departure from the Royalton Resort. We didn't have a care in the world, as it should be during vacation. I will never deal with another travel agency because I trust Getaway Travel Group. I know that they pride themselves on great work ethics and fine customer service. "If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it!" Thank you, Nikki and Josh, for being true professionals!!

Family Time

I had a great time in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana. I stayed at the Royalton and the resort was breathtaking. The hotel service was exceptional. Everything was well organized and flowed well from the time my family and I stepped off our flight to meet our transportation to the hotel and the departure from the hotel to catch our flight. I would definitely vacation at this resort again. I look forward to planning my next all-inclusive with Joshua Purkett.

Hours Back From Jamaica

Just hours back from my Jamaica vacation. After months of planning and multiple emails and loads of phone calls my vacation was absolutely FLAWLESS! I was given the name and number of this agency from a friend Brittany. She had a honeymoon that was planned by GetAway and let me know from the start that I wouldn't be disappointed. She set me up Nikki, who was away on my initial call but she had Josh follow up and then she checked to make sure he had. They both were very professional, and know the travel world like the backs of their hands. They laid out all their services from the first call, explained that I was under no obligation even after several quotes on multiple destinations and dates. I never felt pressured or obligated, or that I just couldn't simply say no. Whenever I spoke with Josh his voice had a "smile" in it, he answered my voice messages timely, my emails timely, and every question without any issue, even when I asked the same question multiple times. I spent 6 nights and 7 days in Jamaica and thanks to the team at GetAway Travel Group it was the best Jamaican experience yet. I can't wait to book my next trip with this Group!
