Let me take you down memory lane.  It is early spring of 2020.  You found an unbelievable deal online with a discount travel website.  Then the world stopped unexpectedly because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Your vacation was cancelled.

You received a generic email from the discount travel website about the cancellation with very little information included.  You tried to call customer service with no answer, and your email to the site’s customer service got no response.  You didn’t buy travel insurance with your vacation because, well, you never needed it before.  You weren’t sure what to do next.

Fast forward to Spring 2021.  The world is slowly reopening.  You have lots of vacation days from work to use and you feel ready to travel further than your backyard.  Let me ask you, would you plan your vacation the same way again?

What if I told you there was a better way to plan a vacation that gives you concierge level service and peace of mind?  You can have both and more when you work with a travel advisor.  Here are a few benefits to consider:

Expertise & Connection

A travel advisor is more than a service rep.  They are a consultant or advisor that can help you discover a new vacation experience or location through their destination and travel supplier knowledge.  An advisor will know which cabin is best to book on a cruise or which resort suite comes with a private rooftop plunge pool.  Travel advisors have connections with many travel partners across the world that often give them priority access to places, amenities, or experiences you may not otherwise get when booking on your own. 

Tailored Vacation Recommendations

A quality conversation with your travel advisor will allow you to share what is important to you when you travel, what experience you are seeking like adventure or romance, and to set a budget expectation.  In turn, your advisor will be able to provide you with a customized recommendation for a vacation that fits your travel style criteria and will manage all the details.  They can share important cancellation and change policies as well as review travel insurance options that cover vacation delays, lost baggage, or even missed flight connections. 

Advocate

A great travel advisor will give you unbiased opinions on vacation options and travel suppliers with your overall experience in mind.  Your advisor will be your advocate before, during, and after your vacation.  If something happens to go wrong while traveling, your advisor will be invaluable as your primary contact person to handle your concerns.

Value

Travel advisors save you time and frustration from hours, or days, of internet searches to find the perfect resort, escorted tour, or cruise itinerary based on your interests.  They often have unpublished rates or special discounts for top destinations.  And you get more value for your vacation investment with exclusive offers like room upgrades, spa credits, transfers, or cruise on board credits.

Travel Restriction Knowledge

Now, more than ever, a travel advisor can be a tremendous resource for knowing the best places to vacation based on current border restrictions or quarantine requirements. In addition to common travel knowledge like passport and/or visa requirements, travel advisors have worked tirelessly to be current in ever-changing information on vaccination and/or COVID testing requirements for top vacation destinations. They can help you make an informed decision on the best place to visit that meets your current level of comfort with travel and social interaction.

Ultimately, travel advisors have your best interest in mind and want you to have an unforgettable vacation. The experience should feel like you are getting a great vacation recommendation from a good friend you trust.  Let them navigate the changing travel landscape on your behalf.

So, let me ask you again.  Are you willing to have the same vacation planning experience of last year?

Or, are you ready to lean into the expertise, value, and service a travel advisor can provide you? 

I would love to be that travel advisor that helps you find your next travel adventure.  Take advantage of our complimentary consultation today.
