Nearly 40 years ago, Scottsdale, Arizona resident Jane Allie launched her travel agent career. Today, her passion and dedication to her business are obvious to those she serves.


Arizona Bride magazine named Jane Allie Travel "Best Travel Agency of 2010 for Honeymoons" and the agency was a finalist for the award in 2009. Jane's favorite travel destinations include Hawaii, Switzerland and France, but her recommendation for most everyone is Italy. "There is so much culture, architecture, history, scenery and beauty to experience in that one country," she says.

Jane also recommends cruising: "When you board the ship, you unpack once and are ready to enjoy the ports of call. You enjoy a city, reboard the ship, have dinner, see a show, go dancing, gamble or [enjoy] any other activity, go to sleep and are ready the next morning to enjoy the next port of call."

Jane attended college at Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, then Tunxis Community College in New Britain, Connecticut. She has been married for 50 years and has three sons and seven grandchildren. Jane's hobbies include reading, exercise, interacting with her grandchildren and, of course, travel.
