Owner & Travel Advisor, Connections Luxury Travel
Sarah Bogaczyk is the owner of Connections Luxury Travel, an independent custom travel planning company affiliated with Departure Lounge host agency.
Sarah grew up, and now lives, in the Chicago area. She spent two decades managing advertising and marketing for Fortune 500 brands and luxury custom homes. Here she honed an intense work ethic, discovered an ability to bring calm to chaos, and found herself most happy when she’s been able to help someone and drive a great relationship in the process.
Travel has always been a meaningful part of her life from family roadtrips as child traversing the US, studying abroad in college and adventuring through Europe, and now having the gift of exposing her own kids to the gift of exploring the world. She believes travel is an incredible vehicle for connecting with others and is motivated to get people, especially families, traveling as she deeply understands just how meaningful it can be.
In 2021, she took a leap merging her professional strengths with her personal passion and started Connections Luxury Travel. Sarah partners with clients on the range of their travel experiences and loves learning more about them and their ideal travel style through the process.
