Eric Chao

Vacation Specialist

Eric is our number one consultant - never a worry with him on your team, always goes above and beyond your requests. I would not travel if Eric and Escapes were not so awesome. Thanks! - Colleen M.

With his calm demeanor, great rapport, and warm "hellos" in the morning, Eric definitely gives the headquarters a needed energetic boost (especially to those who've yet to have their morning coffee, ahem). Eric specializes in all-inclusive travel packages, from family-friendly vacations to adult-only getaways. If you ever have the opportunity to talk to him on the phone, you'd be hard pressed to believe that you're talking to an agent, and not a radio host! Seriously, he's got a great voice.
