BOOK TODAY! 2024 SOULFUL EPICUREAN RIVER CRUISE
Working with a travel agent will ensure that your vacation experience is personalized for you. That is something that a booking website just can’t do. I love to send my clients personalized gifts for their vacations and other special touches to make their experiences unique.
Ever wonder why someone got a special gift like champagne or other personalized touches? They probably worked with a travel agent. If you want to have your trip tailored just for you, you should work with a travel agent.
Did you know that there are some tours and amenities that are only available to book through a travel agent? If you’re not a travel agent, you probably didn’t know! Travel agents have access to exclusive tours and amenities that are not available to the general public. This can mean getting special experiences that you didn’t know existed.
I know for a fact that if you book something online, no one really cares if something goes wrong. If there is a problem, you might spend hours on the phone and possibly never come up with a solution. Having a travel agent on your side means you have an advocate. A travel agent has the resources to get to the bottom of any issue, quickly!
Have you ever spent hours on the phone with Expedia or American Airlines, because I have (as a consumer.) It isn’t fun. Working with a travel agent means having someone to advocate if you’re given the wrong hotel room or if your flight is canceled.
A travel agent has access to resources that are not available to the general public. One of the most common misconceptions is that working with a travel agent costs more than booking on your own. Travel agents can actually access incredible deals, which can mean big savings!
Travel agents can also have access to upgrades, added amenities, better seats on airplanes and so much more. If you’re not sure exactly what you want, a travel agent can help you figure it out. Maybe you want to go to Hawaii, but you’ve never been. A travel agent can help you figure out which island to visit, along with an itinerary that’s personalized just for you.
Are you planning a special event like a wedding or a proposal? That can be tough to tackle by yourself! Travel agents have access to resources and local vendors who can help make your dream a reality.
Sometimes you can spend hours in front of a computer and find a great deal. Other times, you’ll spend hours in front of the computer and come up with nothing. You’ve probably heard the expression time is money. You can spend hours pouring over the internet to (hopefully) find the best flights, best prices, etc. OR you can work with a travel agent.
Travel agents know the best times to visit certain areas. For example, you probably don’t want to go to Kona, Hawaii during the Ironman. Unless you’re participating, in which case, good for you. A travel agent will know the best (and worst) times to go to your desired destination.
You might want to avoid some tropical destinations during rainy seasons, where certain attractions could be closed. How will you know without hours of research? Work with a travel agent. Let’s say that you’re going somewhere that I am not particularly familiar with, I have access to a wealth of information that isn’t public as well as other professionals who will have the answer. If I don’t know, I can find out quickly!
