Let`s Meet

H! I am Yuliya, a founder of YK Travel and your personal travel planner.

I am a professional travel planner for busy and successful people who want to have the best time traveling without spending any time planning. What I love is to save people`s time and frustration spending countless hours doing research and crating itineraries they are not sure about.

I want you to travel confidently knowing that every detail of your trip is taken care of and thought through.

I sincerely believe that a travel planner is as valuable in your life as any other professional, but what most important is that having one will allow you save TIME to concentrate on your busy life, and when it is time to travel, you can truly enjoy the experience.

My Story

My travel roots go back to my early life in Eastern Europe. Living in Ukraine for the first 25 years of my life, I got to travel extensively and was always fascinated by new places and people around me. Traveling was always a hobby. But planning was my real specialty back then. Not the travel planning thought. I got to plan events, conferences and be a logistics specialist for a living. So I can fairly say that planning is my true passion and something I have always loved to do.

Ironically enough, in 2004 I moved to New York City where I got to marry my kindergarten sweetheart and where I happily live ever since. Life got in a way of pursuing travel as much as I wanted to. I landed a good paying corporate job, had to two beautiful kids and lived a typical 9 to 5 lifestyle. Until one day I made a decision…

Deep inside I knew what I wanted to do, but did not know what shape and form combining travel and planning should really take. I wanted to make sure I would become a professional in travel industry, so in I went back to school and received a CTA (Certified Travel Associate) degree in travel. I was selling prepacked vacations at that time (mostly all inclusive vacations) and quickly realized that was not the path I should take. My mission was to bring a lot more value to the clients, rather then selling them what market already had to offer.

The Vision

And this is when the idea of custom travel planning was born. I found my truly ME by combining those two things I always loved the most, travel and planning.  And by planning, I mean every detail of your trip: from transportation and accommodations, to entertainment, restaurants and tours. I can be as much involved in a travel planning process as you need me to. From the moment you retain me as your travel planner to the minute you come back from your trip, I am always a text message/ phone call away for all your travel related questions and issues you might encounter. I use a custom YK Travel app that you install on your phone to access your itinerary at all times, as well as message me with the questions.

I honestly believe, I can make a difference in the way you experience travel.


With love,

Yuliya Kovelman
