The son of a Frontier Airlines employee, Joseph spent his homeschool years (until the 4th grade) utilizing the world as his field trip and textbook.

The time has come. We all know it to be true. You know, the time to say adieu to our lovely 2017 Brand Ambassadors. They’ve been stunning. A proper gem, and if you missed their blogs we highly recommend you go back and read them here (The Buono Family, Shannon, Damir, Jay, Lorianne, Imran, Kristen, Julayna, Julie and Megan Elizabeth).
We here at ID90 Travel love what we do. Sure, it’s super gratifying helping a well-deserving community save a ton on travel, but it’s much deeper than that. It’s stories like Freddy’s where we get weak in the knees, a little bit weepy, and say “This. This is why.” Freddy reached out to us the other day to share this super sweet story about his family’s adoption of a new member, and we about tripped over ourselves asking if we could share it as well
One of my business heroes is Richard Branson, and one of my bucket list items is to be invited to his private island to hang out and talk about business and life. While I’m still waiting for that invitation, I’ve spent time reading about him. One of his business philosophies that we live by here at ID90 Travel is to prioritize employees first, customers second and investors third. I have to say that I love living and working this way, and the results speak for themselves.
If you haven’t heard (or read), please allow us to be completely transparent with you for a moment… *Sigh* Here it goes. We’ve got the best Brand Ambassadors on this planet. There. We said it! Now you know everything. Phew, it feels good to get that off our chest! It’s been talked about all over our social media channels for a minute now, so we thought we’d just go ahead and address those positive accusations firsthand.
