We do the planning!
Some people like to live by chance. While there is nothing wrong with that, a travel agent can give a clear, thought-out schedule of what will be happening, and keep clear records of everything that is included in the trip. Even if you are the type to just “figure it out as I go”, there are some sites and events that require advance planning.
We save you time!
Researching the perfect trip can take up a ton of time. When planning the perfect vacation, our clients reported spending hours, days and sometimes weeks before finding us. Our travel agents spend time getting to know you and what you are looking for, and then put together an entire vacation customized for you.
We know value!
When you spend your hard-earned money on a vacation, you want to see and experience everything your destination has to offer. Our travel agents ensure your travel dollar goes a long way. We steer you clear of unnecessary extras, but make sure you don’t miss those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
We understand budgeting!
Have you ever started a vacation with a budget in mind, but end up spending hundreds, or even thousands more than expected? Our travel agents can help map out exactly how much a trip will cost, so there are fewer surprises. We also let you know what items are prepaid, and what will need to be paid at time of service. When you take a tour, you will know if a meal is included or if you have to buy your own. Instead of automatically purchasing a well-marketed drink package on a cruise ship, we work with you to find if it really makes sense for your family. Simply said, our travel agents can guide you and save you money.
We have exclusivity!
Let’s face it, we all want to be a little bit different. Our travel agents know the new destinations and the new places in them —and often we can get our clients in. Through our partners, we also often get freebies for our customers that range from a free drink to an exclusive admission to a hot event. Upgrade to a penthouse suite? It’s happened!
We have friends!
Can’t book a room at a place you really want? Had a last minute addition to a trip but all the rooms are booked? No problem. We have spent years developing long-term relationships with hoteliers, wholesalers and other travel brands and continue to send our clients to the places and companies that get the best feedback and, of course, match our client’s needs. Due to this, our travel agents have some great leverage, and are more likely to get what they want than a single consumer.
