Corporate Travel Specialist

I have been working in the travel industry since 1978 and have been with Spokane’s Travel Leaders for 33 years. I’ve built my career as a corporate travel consultant experienced in air, hotel, car and rail reservations for both domestic and international travel.  I enjoy the challenge of assisting a corporate traveler with their business needs but also take into account their need for family time.

Many corporations such as Gonzaga University, Kauffman and Associates, Inc. and the State of Washington have complicated travel policies which must be followed. Some examples of parameters I work with daily are:

Class of service allowed for long haul travel.....Fly America Act.....GSA per diem requirements.....Travel authorizations for budgetary requirements.....Internal data management for corporate reporting.....Cost center numbers for billing.....Estimated spend for cars and hotels.....Airline Small Business Rewards, assuring the company is receiving credit for flights purchased.....Direct billing accounts for hotels and rental cars.                      

I have a reputation for making complicated travel arrangements effortless for my corporate clients. I pride myself on being a detail-oriented person, which allows my customers to focus on their destination and not worry about how they are going to get there. That’s my job and it isn’t complete until my clients return home happy.

I believe our success is measured by the ability to listen and anticipate the needs and expectations of our customers. Building a long lasting relationship with you is vital as it allows our Spokane, Washington Travel Leaders to be stronger than the competition as well as the best travel solution partner in the market.

Best Agent I Have Ever Worked With
I have been utilizing Marklyn for many, many years of business travel. She has always been very responsive and available, no matter the complexity of the travel needs. Whether I was booking for myself or multiple employees, she is always there to work through it as a partner. She is consistently searching for the best and most cost effective options. As many understand who travel, things can change in an instant, Marklyn is there when those times and opportunities arise.

Best Customer Service
I have worked with Marklyn for the past 20 years, and she is truly remarkable! It is difficult to find the words to describe how grateful I am for her and the services she provides. On many occasions, she has saved me from forgetting to reserve a hotel, car or use a credit. Her customer service is off the chart! I don't know what I would do without her!

Social Science Travel
Marklyn is my go to person when travel in on the line. I work in support of faculty members and students, who bring to me a variety of specific details that they need taken into consideration. I am not a travel expect so I put my faith in Marklyn and that faith has never been displaced. Marklyn is responsive and attentive and trustworthy and that has made all the difference.
