Each week I'm often asked why travelers should book with a travel consultant. With the advent of online booking engines it's easier than ever to book vacations on our own. Below are the top ten reasons I give when asked why someone should book using a travel consultant instead of booking on their own.
As your travel consultant, my services are free to you! That’s right; you don’t pay me a dime directly. Instead, I am paid by the travel company.
I am your advocate. We all hope that vacations go perfectly and we have nothing but great memories, but in life sh!t happens. When things don't go to plan, I am on the phone with your travel vendors to make sure they make it right so you don't have to.
The more you travel, the better our relationship. Like any other relationship, I get to know your travel style over time, and getaways become easier.
If you’re giving the vacation as a gift, I can help you plan the unveiling and even do the leg work of getting trinkets to give to your family.
As your travel consultant, I have connections to vendors that are not otherwise available to the public.
I will help you find the right fit. Maybe one cruise line is better for your family than the other, it’s my job to make sure you’re set up with the best vacation possible.
You save time. There’s no need to spend hours of your own time planning out every aspect of your vacation, let me do the work for you.
I watch for new rates that can help you save money and work with the travel company to apply it to your reservation.
I’m here to help you plan. You tell me what you want, and I plan the vacation based on your needs.
I have experienced travel and your favorite destinations, who better to help you plan than someone who has been there and done that?
