It’s time to see the world.

The Better Kate Than Never Adventures favicon, a highly detailed mariners' compass

Don’t you wish travel planning was as easy as dropping a pin on a map? With all of the technology and information at our fingertips, you’d think that it would be. Instead, you spend countless hours scouring the internet for the best hotels, restaurants, and insider tips and, before you know it, you have dozens of tabs open and are no closer to your vacation.


It’s time to put a pin in the old ways and make travel planning easy again. Tell me where in the world you are ready to explore and leave the rest to me.

Hi There! 


I’m Katie MacQueen, your verified travel advisor. No really, I am actually ASTA (American Society of Travel Advisors) verified to ensure that every trip you take is the trip of a lifetime. 


As a Veteran and travel enthusiast, my journey around the world began very early in my career. As a result, I have seen and done some pretty incredible things. I have also experienced first-hand just how challenging and time-consuming travel planning can be, which is why I am here to help you. 


Rather than spending countless hours trying to figure out what the visa requirements are for Cambodia, if there are any Mayan pyramids you can climb in Mexico, or where can you find a camel to ride or bacon for breakfast in Israel, just come to me. 


I am here to be your trusted global guide and to make sure that planning your next vacation fills you with excitement instead of overwhelming.

How much is your time worth?

My guess is a lot, which means you are not someone who has time to waste. Planning a trip takes time, and mediocre recommendations coupled with information overload will easily overwhelm anyone. Stop wasting time and money when it comes to your hard-earned vacation. 


  1. I am here to work for you. As a qualified and verifed travel advisor, I am your guide through the travel planning process. I will spend time getting to know you, what you like, what you don’t like, what kind of trips you’ve taken in the past, even how you like to spend your Saturday morning! All of these details will help me plan your perfect trip.

  2. You will never feel abandoned. Unlike some booking engines or large travel agencies, I won’t take your money and run. No matter where in the world you are, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week I am available to help make sure your trip goes right. Before, during and after your vacation, travel support and care is only one click or call away.

  3. With years of personal and professional experience, I know all of the insider travel tips and tricks that you won’t find on the internet.
