Agent Spotlight - Agency Manager Scott


This is Scott VanSyckle, live from the Kingdom Konsultant Travel HQ in northern NJ!  I was asked to do a blog back in 2016, and since that blog was such a roaring success, I figured I’d surprise you and let you all behind the curtain a bit….again!

Why am I writing a blog?  In all honesty…they asked me to write one, so here goes.  While most know that Kingdom Konsultant Travel books Disney-based travel, not many are aware that we can book ANY destination.  In fact, this team of incredible people is constantly striving to improve on their world-class customer service by traveling to new destinations, taking courses, and communicating within the team (SO IMPORTANT.)
