Meet LaDell Carter

Founder + President
It All Began With My Parents, Who Inspired Me As A Child By Planning Memorable Vacations For Our Family Each Year. Whether We Were Piling Into The Family Car For A Road Trip Or Travelling Across Country, They Made It Their Mission To Give Me And My Siblings Experiences That Would Shape Us For A Lifetime. I Still Remember My Very First Trip Out Of The Country To Canada When I Was Just 16 Years Old.

It Was Love At First Flight.
Before I knew it, I was the one planning elaborate getaways for our family, researching the very best accommodations, deals and activities. We’ve been everywhere together from China to Russia to the Caribbean with children in tow, enjoying exclusive accommodations that seemed unattainable for even the average guest. Often times I’d pinch myself in utter disbelief that yet another dream had come to life right before my eyes.
It was then that I realized what I wanted to do for a living: help others bring their dream vacations to life the same way I had for decades.
I created Royal Expression Travels with a vision to give every traveller their wildest fantasy. I wanted to do more than just be a travel agent, booking trips to destinations I’d never seen. I wanted to curate travel experiences, recommending only the very best based on what I’d seen with my own two eyes. So I set out to find the hottest destinations, most luxurious accommodations and the latest travel trends fit for royalty.

Thus, Royal Expression Travels was Born.
My team of professionals is out of the office on business-related travel for more than 100 days each year. We’ve been to more than 90 countries, scouring the globe for the very best. Our clients come to us because they get experiences they can’t get anywhere else. Watching their dreams come to life is my personal privilege and joy.
