If you've planned a trip before, you know the time involved in searching and researching fares, hotels, tours, where to go and what to do, and trying to fit it all in your budget. There is nothing relaxing about checking into your "great deal" hotel and realizing you booked yourself a room an unsafe area of town. Or thinking you got a fantastic rate on your cruise when the people at your dinner table received a free balcony upgrade, paid $200 less and received a bottle of wine in their stateroom courtesy of their travel agent. Like having a good butcher that will sell you their best cuts of meat, the same can be said for having a great relationship with your travel agent. We have access to a multitude of suppliers--many not available to the public--that enable us to create that perfect itinerary along with the ability to build your personal preferences into your vacation.
Maybe you're thinking, "But I'm the type that likes to do my vacation planning so I know exactly what my best options are." That is great! You can still do all your planning, but give me a call. I may be able to get you a reduced deposit, a free upgrade, a resort or onboard credit, or even a cheaper airfare--all of these things will add more value and luxury to your vacation.
Don't forget the benefit of having someone "on the ground" when, heaven forbid, your flights are cancelled or you arrive at your destination and decide you want to do that wine tour after all. I've got your back the whole way through your vacation. I can work with the airline to rebook your flight or book and send you the tickets to that tour so that you can relax and enjoy your vacation instead of worrying about the details. Isn't it time you gave a professional the reins to your vacation? I personally think so. To read the Travel Pulse article, click here:
