Condé Nast Traveler 2020 Top Travel Specialists

Frontiers is proud to announce that two of our veteran 35+ year staff, Jill Jergel and Mollie Fitzgerald have once again been recognized in Conde Nast Traveler Magazine’s annual prestigious list of Top Travel Specialists – their “definitive list of the finest travel experts in the world” – as featured in the April 2020 issue. This is one of the highest industry accolades bestowed upon just 225 specialists from around the world.

In the words of Melinda Stevens, Editor In Chief, “These are the pros who whip up life-changing experiences with military precision, and who always have the answers to questions most travelers don’t even know to ask – which is why we rely heavily on their insights when reporting stories from around the world.  To dismiss them as mere vacation planners would be selling them short: they are the architects  of travelers’ dreams, able to transform the way each of us sees the world with a single itinerary.” 

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 37 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.
