Condé Nast Traveler 2019 Top Travel Specialist We Trust

Frontiers is proud to announce that two of our veteran 30+ year staff, Jill Jergel and Mollie Fitzgerald, have once again been recognized in Condé Nast Traveler's annual prestigious list of Top Travel Specialists, or true "experience makers" - as featured in their April 2019 issue. This is one of the highest industry accolades bestowed upon just 175 travel specialists this year from around the world.

In the words of Condé Nast Traveler Magazine Articles Editor, Paul Brady, "the right "experience maker" will intuit your desires before you even know what they are - then they'll make them happen. These travel specialists can do exactly that, no matter what your interests are. The more unpredictable our natural and political landscapes become, the more we feel the urge to visit places untouched by the news cycle. We're craving the kind of life and perspective-changing travel that's made all the more magical when planned by the pros - no matter how fearless and self-sufficient we sometimes feel."

Frontiers not only salutes, but delights in being a part of the magazine's mission statement: "As the most discerning, up-to-the-minute voice in all things travel, Condé Nast Traveler is the global citizen's bible and muse, offering both inspiration and vital intel. We understand that time is the greatest luxury, which is why Condé Nast Traveler mines its network of experts and influencers so that you never waste a meal, a drink, or a hotel stay wherever you are in the world."

Give Jill, Mollie, or any of our other outstanding global destination specialists a call and let us put our knowledge to work for your next holiday!

Jill Jergel - European Canal Barge Cruises
Frontiers International Travel
Hoping to combine a France land itinerary with a float down a French canal? Jergel has sailed on 85+ barges in her 35 years of booking barge cruises, and matches more than 100 clients to the right vessels annually.

Mollie Fitzgerald - Fly Fishing
Frontiers International Travel

Fitzgerald, who last year sent more than 4,900 travelers on sporting trips, takes into account all manner of minutiae so that you don’t have to—from the most productive moon phase for Caribbean-flats fishing to the proper salmon flies for Alaska or Iceland. The Seychelles are a hot destination for saltwater fishing, she says, and she loves to send travelers to Russia's Ponoi River for Atlantic salmon or to Zambia to nab the hard-fighting tigerfish. Her strong relationships with the best sporting lodges and hotels ensure the right accommodations for each client.
