Using a professional for a service is always a good idea. Here are the top 10 reasons why you should be using a travel advisor to plan and book your vacations.
1. Just Plain Good Advice
2. VIP Treatment
Because of our relationships in the industry, clients who book with travel advisors will often be incentivized with added amenities. For example, many resorts will offer, free room upgrades, complimentary bottle of wine, spa credits, and more for booking through an advisor.
3. Human Element
You have a person you can consult with during the entire vacation planning process. Someone who works for YOU and not for the hotel, cruise line, etc. A travel advisor will be looking out for what is in your best interest for your vacation and not trying to sell you on a particular product – we have no sales quotas to meet. Our goal is client satisfaction.
4. Save Time
It takes a ton of time to build an itinerary. There are so many details when it comes to travel. You have airfare, trains, rental cars, driver service, hotels, villas, group tours, private tours and so much to think about. A travel advisor can simplify all these details and take care of everything so that you can relax and get treated like the VIP you are.
5. It's All About Relationships
Like most professionals, travel advisors are continually making new industry connections, building relationships, and immersing themselves in the details about the destinations our clients travel.
6. Custom Experiences
Do you want a custom tour experience? Maybe you are looking for something unique and your google search is coming up short. Travel advisors are connected with the people who can make your custom private or group tour requests become reality!
7. Advisors Have Your Back!
Should something go amiss during your travels – you don’t have to call a 1-800 number only to have long wait times, and multiple transfers before you can get your issues solved. Your travel advisor will always be one email, phone call, or text message away from stepping in to assist getting your travel dilemma solved.
A travel advisor can enhance your itinerary in ways you never knew were possible! Take a sleigh ride through the Alps, tour an oyster farm, or hire a personal shopper. A travel advisor can add experiences to your itinerary that you would have never thought of on your own.
9. Knowledge is Everything
Travel advisors are in the know on the newest trends, and hot spots. They can help you navigate the options that are best suited to your taste and can assist with special event travel such as the Super Bowl, or the Olympics.
10. Trust the Professional
Travel advisors really do know more than you do and can plan a vacation better than you can on your own. Just like all professionals – you may be able to do it yourself, but a professional will do it better.
