With the summer season in full swing and your dream vacation lurking in every corner, the Hurlburt Field Information, Tickets and Travel is here to make your wish upon a star come true.

The ITT office's purpose is to bring Airmen and their families fun and entertainment through locally-sponsored events and discounted vacation packages.

The ITT office, staffed with full-time travel agents and online services, offers discounted packages for college and professional sports, cruises, airline tickets, vacation packages, bus tours and hotel accommodations.

"We greet everyone who comes in, and because they're military and busy, we get them in and out as fast as possible," said Brenda Lopez, ITT travel agent. "We are timely and diligent."

The benefit of business done in-person at the office is the opportunity to receive a money back guarantee for travel mishaps and inconveniences.

The ITT office is also heavily involved with the base community. Last year, they hosted a "Harry Potter day," in celebration of the opening of the Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios in Orlando.

They recently held a "Splash in the Summer" which had donated boat rides, inflated slides and free giveaways from local vendors.

The ITT office also hosts a yearly travel show with 60 to 100 vendors and more than 600 military personnel from Northwest Florida in attendance. These shows are usually hosted within the first week of March and are used to inform people of vacation deals, ticket discounts and attraction benefits.

Summer is ITT's most popular season with kids out of school and attractions at locations like Disney World and Universal Studios. However, fall can be just as popular with the frenzy of football game tours in play, such as trips to see the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, Florida State Seminoles and more.

But, whether they may save money or send people miles away, the ITT office does not just book vacations, they book dreams and happiness.

"I have the love of travel and the look on kids faces when they get to go to Big Kahuna's, or even young couples who go to Disney or on a cruise for the first time," said Susan Milan, 1st Special Operations Force Support Squadron ITT director. "We're hoping to fill someone's dream vacation."
