MEET THE TEAM

Our mission is to provide you the best vacation, travel experience and service possible.

Rodney Lau

President

Debbe and I began Travel Specialists in 1995 to focus on luxury travel. We felt that if we listened to our clients and understood what was important to them, we would be able to provide wonderful adventures. From beginning to end we strive to deliver the best travel experience possible because experiencing different cultures, meeting engaging people, and bringing home incredible memories is the essence of travel.

Debbe Lau

Vice President

I had been in the retail business my whole life, starting at Ethel’s while in high school, then Liberty House,McInerny, and then Guava Lane and Vis-à- Vis with my partners. When I sold my stores in 1994 and started working with Rodney I felt there was a wonderful opportunity in cruising and luxury travel. Rodney took his first cruise on the Seabourn Legend and the next year we cruised on the Radisson Diamond. We have taken 30 cruises and are committed to applying our experience and knowledge to assisting our clients.

I have been with Travel Specialists since 2011. My love for travel and different cultures led me to work in the Travel Industry!  Having travelled throughout North America and Europe I’ve gained experience with what it’s like to be “the traveler”, which has helped me in assisting our clients with their vacations! My favorite destinations are London and Switerland, but I hope to one day visit New Zealand!
