An Interview With Jenna Matthews

How many years have you been selling travel?

I graduated my Travel and Tourism program in 2010 and have been a Destination Wedding Specialist for over 5 years.

What are your hobbies?

Other than the obvious; travelling, I enjoy being outside in nature, whether it's rock climbing, hiking, surfing, walking the dogs or laying in a hammock, I'm happy if I'm outside.

What type of resort activities do you favor? ie water sports, lounging by the pool, etc?

It really depends on the day, some days I want water sports, excursions and anything active, other days I just want to lounge by the pool with a good book.

What are your favorite destinations?

Mexico; I have been blessed with staying at some of the most romantic and unique resorts. I find Mexico offers the best value for money in the all-inclusive market. Hawaii; The culture and the varied landscape keeps me coming back. There is something simply magical about a beach wedding in Hawaii, no matter the island. New Zealand; I spent a year in New Zealand travelling both islands in a campervan. I would recommend a touring holiday there over most other destinations. Bali; Eat, Pray, Love was right, this place is full of love. Whether it's love for surfing, history, culture, romance or beautiful beaches, Bali has it all.

What languages do you speak?

English and broken tourist spanish

Do you have a family? and if so what type of family travel have you done?

So far it is just the two of us, so the focus has been adventure and romance travel.

Testimonials

  • "Good Morning, I would like to commend you for having an excellent employee, Jenna Matthews! Today I completed a 10 person, all inclusive package to Puerto Vallarta. This is the first time I have ever used a travel agency, let alone planning a trip for such a large group. Jenna helped me through every step of the way. She was patient, cheerful, insightful and always available either by phone or email. Her promptness to my questions, even when the answers were not readily at her fingertips, were always answered to my satisfaction. Jenna Matthews showed me that your company hires top quality employees and I will be sure to recommend Maritime Travel to friends and family. On a personal note, Jenna has a great sense of humor and we had a few good laughs." - Happy New Client
  • "Jenna was a pleasure to deal with. I required a flight for my son to come home for Christmas from Alberta and she had multiple options available in less than 24 hrs of contacting her and even priced out car rental from the airport for his stay. Highly recommend anyone to let her organize any travel needs!" - Family Travel
  • "Jenna was awesome! She was very timely and we had our honeymoon booked in no time. We knew what resort we wanted to go to and Jenna encouraged us that it was a great choice and listed in detail what would be included with our stay (including a great honeymoon package!). Loved the online booking, it was great for me because I always seem to be busy, so being able to book online was great! The service was great! I would (and have) recommended you to a few friends of mine that are going on a honeymoon or planing a destination wedding! Hotel was beautiful! We stayed at The Excellence Punta Cana. The service was great. Everyone was always smiling and very helpful. The resort was very clean and we decided before we left that we want to go back there again!" - Honeymoon
  • "I'm glad we went with you. You have made the process as stress free as possible and are easy to talk to which is important. " - Happy Bride
  • "Everything was absolutely perfect. Jenna was amazing. I wouldn't change a thing. I'm so happy I met Jenna at the wedding fair and we connected instantly. I knew she was someone I could trust to essentially help me plan my wedding! " - 2019 Bride and Groom
  • "We met Jenna in October 2017 at a Wedding Fair we went to in Vancouver. There were several booths for destination wedding specialists, but Jenna really took the time to connect with us and made our interaction very personalized. We worked closely alongside her for the next year and a half planning our destination wedding. We spent months researching resorts, where Jenna worked on getting quotes for our group and recommended places based on what we were looking for. She helped send out our invitations, handled our entire group (30 people) booking and answered everyone's questions in a professional and timely manner. I can honestly say I don't know what I would have done without Jenna through the planning process. She made everything stress free and always had my back every step of the way. We had never been to the Caribbean side of Mexico before and put all our trust into Jenna's suggestions. We just arrived home on Sunday from our 05.15.2019 wedding and I don't even have words for how " - 2019 Wedding
