Priscilla Holmes, MBA

CEO & Chief Travel Advisor

Meet Priscilla Holmes

Priscilla is on a mission to help empty nesters in their second act of life turn their travel dreams into cherished memories.

Travel maestro Priscilla Holmes weaves affordable luxury and heartfelt expertise into every tailor-made journey at Cilla Travel. Her story began with savvy timeshare vacations, a perfect fit for her bustling home life and parallel careers—her ascent and her husband’s flourishing electrical business. Those foundations laid the groundwork for today’s mission: creating exquisite travel experiences for those embarking on life’s next exciting phase.

Priscilla’s approach goes beyond typical tourist jaunts—it’s a deep dive into rich experiences, each moment treasured, every adventure personal. Her crafted itineraries are your passport to the world’s wonders, from cultural indulgences to the secret corners of the globe.

A unique blend of technical skill and military precision underpins her transition from a timeshare-savvy traveler to Cilla Travel’s visionary leader. Her background in software engineering and the defense sector, academic accolades in Information Systems, and an MBA ensures that every client’s experience is a masterpiece of planning and passion.

Now calling the charming town of Summerville, South Carolina home, Brooklyn-born Priscilla values travel for the indelible memories it creates for everyone.

Let Priscilla’s guiding hand and Cilla Travel’s bespoke itineraries lead you to not just destinations, but experiences that linger long after the journey’s end. Leap into a world of curated travels, where your stories are waiting to be told.

We Look Forward To A Busy 2023 And Beyond!

Professional travel advisors like myself helped millions of travelers worldwide at the pandemic’s start. We helped get travelers home, and we waited for days at a time on hold for each of our clients to cancel and change their upcoming travel with airlines, hotels, cruise lines, and tour operators. We were so pleased that our clients had us advocate for them, and we look forward to rebooking them to travel again when they are ready.

 

We are excited for the world to reopen to you and look forward to being busy planning travels for 2023, and beyond for you!

 

Our new Trip Design Services will ensure that you receive that incredible level of pre-departure and in-destination support from our team, just like those travelers who were affected by the pandemic. You can dream of and plan your next vacation with us full of confidence.

 

We are currently booking travelers on vacations that offer flexibility, meaning they can easily push out their departure date should changes arise. We’re here to turn it from a thought into a boarding pass!3
