Rod and Sharla Reed are opening a new business this week. The couple are running Best Travel by Reeds out of their home and are inviting the public to an open house this Wednesday, March 19 and next, March 26.
The Reeds offer their clients the opportunity to travel like an insider and beat most online travel prices 96 percent of the time.
"It's a new way to travel," said Rod.
The primary focus of the business is booking travel for clients, but the Reeds can also help those interested construct a travel Web site.
"A travel Web site can make someone money from travel and create tax advantages," he said.
The Reeds work with one of the largest travel groups in the world. On their Web site, besttravelbyreeds.com, you will find a "steals and deals" section.
"Some of the deals right now are a tour of China that includes the Great Wall and the new Olympic center," Rod said.
Another special on the site is a trip to Montego Bay.
Travel is a passion for the Reeds. They have traveled extensively and worked in the cruise industry. Their expertise has been featured on one of the Discovery Channel's travel programs.
Among their favorite destinations are Hawaii, the Caribbean and Branson, Mo.
Join them for a travel and vacation presentation at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 19 and March 26.
"Our guests will learn how to never pay full retail price again on their travel, experience tax savings, make money with no inventory, quotas or stock," Rod said.
The programs will be at the Reed home, 703 E. Frontier Street, No. 35, Payson. Register by calling (928) 970-1808 or (480) 980-5055 or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Reeds have lived in Payson for two years and were in Heber-Overgaard for 10 years before moving here. They are both natives of Mesa, Ariz.
