Faith-Based Travel Specialist

After 30 years of traveling the world with the United States Navy, I now put my life experience to work as a travel advisor and vacation designer. I specialize in faith-based travel as well as bringing history to life for veterans and history buffs. I’m also proud to be a Certified Accessible Travel Advocate, helping those with special needs navigate the sometimes-complex world of travel.

My husband Dan and I operate T&D Travel Partners from St Augustine, Florida, the oldest continuously settled city in America. We have the pleasure of helping others realize their travel dreams while making lifetime memories. As an extension of my military background, I’m a multi-task wizard who’s very organized and obsessive about details. This means clients can relax and enjoy a stress-free journey, whether relaxing on an exotic island beach or zipping through an adrenaline-filled, breathtaking adventure.

Multiple travel certifications ensure clients are in good hands with a wealth of knowledge to inform their journeys. I have completed training in all the major cruise lines, hold the CLIA Small Ships/Boutique certification, and am a certified Vacation Planner for Universal Studios and Disney.

Our faith-based packages are fully immersive. On a Holy Land tour, travelers sail the Sea of Galilee, can be baptized in the Jordan River, share a meal with an Israeli family, and visit the golden city of Jerusalem to relive the final days of Jesus’ life. I also help military veterans and first-responders visit famous battlefields, take a steamboat river cruise down the Mississippi for a Civil War reenactment, or walk the somber shores of Normandy Beach.

There’s a saying “The world is so big, and I am so small.” Travel gives us a greater understanding of how small we really are within the scope of an immense world that’s full of cultures so unlike our own. It’s my honor to handle the planning, details and execution of those life-affirming journeys for my clients. 

 

We love helping our clients!

Thank you so much! You saved us several hundred dollars on a round trip to pick up and drop off the grandkids and completely took the stress off of me!! You totally made a believer out of me!! - Erin G

Our life long dream has been to do a transatlantic cruise, and thanks to Terie at T & D Travel Partners, she has made my dream come true she got us a great deal on the new Carnival Horizon! - Teresa S

I was looking for a great place for our Anniversary and Terie jumped right in and helped us . It wasn't easy being on a Holiday weekend, but she made it easy. I love her knowledge of places as she is a seasoned traveller herself and I trust her opinion. I'll be checking with her 1st from now on. - Anastasia G

Best Customer Service!
Terie Hynish was the agent for a friend's cruise party that we went on. We had a issue with one of our Carnival loyalty numbers. Even though it was a personal info matter, she took the ball and ran with it. The next day, Terie had everything handled. We were so pleased with our service, we have now plans for three more trips using Terie. Thank you so much for your help!!

A truly memorable honeymoon
Absolutely wonderful! I wish we could give her "10 stars." My wife and I were connected to Terie through a mutual friend and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. We had never used a travel agent before and boy do we regret it! She made everything so easy from the early planning stages through the actual trip. Thank you for making our honeymoon truly special and something we will never forget. We can't wait to book our next vacation with her!

I'm so glad that your vacation was all that you had hoped for (and maybe a little more?!?). I can't wait to help you design your next vacation! Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
