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.
Since launching her new company, Jen has become the go-to curator for luxury hotels and resorts, yachts, private aviation, fine dining, wine tasting forays, and more. With her refined aesthetic sensibilities and deep appreciation for excellence, she loves to impart her knowledge and research of fabulous locales around the globe.
She enthusiastically believes that leisure travel is not only a nice respite from routine, but a fundamental part of human growth.
If you’re ready for your next adventure, Jen can’t wait to guide you every step of the way.
Jen’s heart-centered approach is at the core of her success.
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?
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!
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.
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.

"Her incredible passion for all things travel are clear by her constantly evolving curated list of eclectic travel destinations and dining recommendations. 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”
Jackson Hole, you have my heart. It’s only been a few weeks since our trip to Jackson & Grand Teton National Park.
There was once a time that even I questioned the use of hiring a travel agent.
