We are Allure Quest Travel Experience
Alan Whitt - President/ CEO
Alan Whitt is the man behind the company. It is his passion for travel - and his vision - that drove him to create Allure Quest Travel Experience in 2008.
He believes regular and passionate travelers alike need one place they can go to find information and news about traveling the United States and the world ... and to book their vacations and getaways as well.
They need a travel resource. They need Allure Quest Travel Experience.
Alan has had two career passions in his life - sports and travel. He often says he’s been fortunate to have worked in both fields. Most people rarely get a chance to experience one.
His career as a travel writer / travel specialist is relatively new, but he’s traveled the globe for much of his life, including visiting 40 of these United States. He just hasn't gotten to the final 10 yet.
Included in those travels is a total of 35 cruises on 10 cruise lines over the last 15 years, and countless trips to Las Vegas, Orlando and other popular vacation spots such as Palm Springs, the Grand Canyon, Lake Tahoe ... the list goes on.
But he’s not stopping there. As Alan travels, he’ll blog about it all ... answer your questions ... and put you in resorts and on ships through his insight, expertise, photos and video.
He can do that because he’s an award-winning journalist, who began his career as a sports writer and editor before moving into the travel business full-time.

Alan also won two Emmy Awards while working at ESPN as a news editor for SportsCenter.
