To understand what the Travels of Distinction™ Destination Dossier™ is, you need only combine the definitions of each.
Destination: a place to which one is traveling
Dossier: a file containing detailed records on a particular person or subject
Therefore, The Travels of Distinction™ Destination Dossier™ is a personal booklet containing detailed information on the particular place to where you are traveling.
To be more specific, we begin with the information clients provide in our vacation form. Based on their interests, we compile a comprehensive document that contains activity and entertainment options for them to enjoy during their stay. Information pertaining to their preferred land, air, and water activities as well as maps, shopping availability, wedding packages, and dining preferences can be included.
