When Jen Terra decided to pursue a semester abroad in Japan during college, she had no idea it would ignite her lifelong passion for exploring the world. It was her first international excursion and, for that reason, she wanted to immerse herself in a destination rich with culture.
While Jen cherished her experience overseas and was certainly bitten by the travel bug, she ultimately returned home to pursue careers in the insurance and real estate industries, respectively. But, after a decade of number-crunching by day and dreaming up exhilarating itineraries by night, she knew she needed to follow her dream and share her wanderlust with others. Thus, Jen Terra Travels was born.

“La vita è un viaggio. Chi viaggia vive due volte!”
“Life is a voyage. Those who travel live twice!”

She enthusiastically believes that leisure travel is not only a nice respite from routine, but a fundamental part of human growth.

Jen’s heart-centered approach is at the core of her success.

WHAT SETS jen terra travels APART IS THAT

If I wasn’t a travel advisor, I would be a group exercise instructor, an interior designer, or a stand-up comic. What? I’m funny!

I live in Connecticut with my husband, two daughters, two Bernedoodles, two fish, and a cat. It’s a full house. 

Marrying a chef was the best decision I’ve ever made. Good thing I like to eat (and exercise!).

Speaking of which, on any given Sunday, you’ll find me hiking, drinking coffee or wine, and baking sourdough bread from a 100-year-old starter named Betty Jane.

If I could only visit one country on repeat it would be Italy. 

Currently on my travel bucket list: Philippine Islands, Alaska, Dolomites, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and Mongolia. Who’s coming with me?

Does your passion for travel exceed your time to plan the perfect trip?

I was blown away by the service we received. She made everything so easy and always got back to me so quickly! Jen handles everything calmly, professionally and even with great humor!  

"Jen planned such a special weekend at The Mayflower Spa for me and my life long college girlfriends. "


She picked an incredible hotel and planned all of our activities to perfection. We asked her for a location/hotel where we could all spend time together and unwind while being in nature. It's like she read my mind-she sent us to Hidden Pond. She exceeded my expectations. I will only use her moving forward to plan vacations.

"Jen took every travel dream we had and made it come true."

Jess + Justin

When our ten year anniversary trip plans changed due to Covid, Jen pivoted our plans and booked us the ultimate trip to Newport, Rhode Island. From our stay at The Brenton, her restaurant choices, visit to the winery, and the entire customized itinerary, we had the most romantic and stress free trip. I will never not use Jen for any future travel.

Even with all the hours of research I personally do myself, I know I’d never find these gems on my own, and the perks when using her are just the cherry on top”

"We are so lucky to have Jen Terra Travels for all of our travel needs. "
