Hello, my name is Audrey Hulen.

 I love to travel!  I retired from my 8-5 job in 2018 to pursue my dream job of being a cruise and vacation specialist. Since then, I have opened my own Travel Agency in Lake City, Florida. The name of my travel agency is You Need A Vacation Now Travel LLC .  Although I am located in Lake City, I am happy to serve you from anywhere that you live in the United States and Canada.

I specialize in group travel, river cruises, ocean cruises, all inclusive resorts, honeymoons and destination weddings.

I have to confess that I am very excited about being able to help people in the Lake City and surrounding area to find and enjoy their dream vacations! I recently  came back from Jerusalem, the Holy Land, and it was amazing!! The Sea of Galilee was amazing as was the City of David and I floated in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth!   If you want to scratch this destination off your bucket list or you would like to plan a pilgrimage for your church to the Holy Land, please contact me, I would love to share my experience of this amazing trip and help you and/or your church group get there as well. 

I also love to cruise and have been to Alaska, the Bahamas, Europe, and the Caribbean.  Let me help you find a deal on your next cruise!

Follow my  Business Facebook page to stay up to date with the latest deals I have to offer. 

Feel free to look around my website and contact me at (386) 697-8550 once you find your dream vacation or to let me help you plan your next adventure.  I do not charge a fee so let me use my expertise and the suppliers I am partnered with to help you plan your stress free vacation from start to finish!   

Please contact me or any of my qualified colleagues below to help you plan your next vacation.  We are eager to serve you.  

My sister Rena and her husband Gerry have joined me as sub agents in this endeavor specializing in golf groups as well as river cruising.  They  are also available to assist you with your travel needs from their location near Phoenix,  Arizona. 

Together, we  look forward to serving your travel and vacation needs! Thank you for your support!
