Why you want to hire a professional travel advisor
Are you debating whether to book your vacation on your own or use a professional travel advisor? Explore the facts and myths of using a TA.
If you're asking, "why should I use a travel advisor for my next trip," you're not alone. Traveling is more than searching online and using a search engine to book your trip. It's about the moments and memories created when everything goes perfectly. When you book a vacation with Rainbow Getaways, we ensure you can focus less on planning your vacation and more on creating memories.

"Awesome agent! Scott really takes the time to know what your needs and wants are. He pays close attention to detail and makes sure your trip is perfect. No matter how many questions I’ve asked, he is always there to answer and will dig deep to find the correct answers."
"I have been using Scott from Rainbow Getaways for all my travel needs as he is the most responsive and helpful Travel Agent I’ve encountered! From the beginning, in the pre-planning stage of the trip, to the actual trip itself and then once you’re back home, he has always been wonderful! He always makes sure to answer all my questions, make sure I get any updates, and check on me once the trip is underway to make sure everything is going as planned. For all my questions he will find the answer, and is very good with every little detail! I always feel very confident that he will help me plan out my vacation dreams to make them all a reality."
