About Carrie

Carrie Martin started her travel advisory company, Carrie Martin Travel (CMT) in 2018. Her love of travel began at the age of 5 when her parents took her family to Europe for 7 months. Memories of a haircut in Paris and paella in Valencia laid the groundwork for her love of adventure. 

Her career as a ballerina with American Ballet Theatre provided many opportunities for national and international travel. Highlights include performing at the Acropolis in Athens, and at the famed Paris Opera House.

Carrie is a Certified Travel Associate®, as well as an American Queen Voyages™ certified agent. CMT specializes in Europe, the UK, Australia, South Africa, USA, cruises and can work with you to make any dream come true. 

When we create itineraries for our clients, we do not make recommendations based on earning a commission. We want to find the perfect accommodations, transportation options, activities, and dining opportunities based on what you and your travel companions will most enjoy. As a destination expert, CMT charges a planning fee for what we do instead of earning a commission on each sale. This allows us to find the very best of everything for our clients.

Why use a travel agent? When you book through a travel agent, you can expect customized itineraries, concierge service, and exclusive amenities and upgrades.

Carrie Martin Travel is an independent affiliate of 1000 Mile Travel Group.
