1. Travel can be complicated on your own.
With so many new cruise ships coming out in the next few years through many lines such as Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Disney Cruise Line and so many more, having a professional help with the planning and logistics can have a big impact on how much time you spend on research, planning and how much you enjoy your vacation.
2. Travel Planners are on top of what’s new and exciting.
The world is full of experiences and your bucket list can be big and expensive. Travel professionals have access to the best tour packages, events, and pricing. They also have relationships with suppliers you will not have. They know when and where to look for promotions as well as the best times of year to travel.
3. Travel Professionals save you time and stress.
Planning a trip is hard work if you do not have your own first hand experience. Travel agents spend many years traveling the world, investing their own money on experiences to learn from for their clients, reviewing many different hotel rooms and cruise ships as well as all of the dining options in house and nearby. If they haven't personally been where you want to go,one of their friends has!
4. Travel advisors are there when you need an advocate.
Whether you have a problem getting to your destination, while you are actually there, or when you are coming home, your travel agent is there to help you 24 hours a day!
5. You have one shot to enjoy your vacation.
Your vacation time is extremely valuable in today's world. Travel agents can save you hours, if not days, of research to find the perfect vacation. If you ever have a change you also will never have to sit on hold for hours with your airline or resort trying to fix it.
6. Travel Planners add the human touch.
Travel advisors listen, suggest, understand and become a friend who really learns all about you. Every communication is with the same person who forms a connection with you. You can not get that online or with a 1-800 number.
7. Destinations are forever changing and agents receive that news first.
Has the Caribbean recovered from the latest Hurricane? Is it safe to travel to the Mexico? Travel advisors research and experience the places they sell and always have the latest news first.
8. They often save you money along with delivering value.
The value you receive will be bigger than what you paid for. Many agents do not charge a fee and are paid directly through the supplier you book with. You normally will pay the same price booking yourself that you would using an agent!
9. Travel agents offer unique services for clients who want to book those off the beaten path activities.
It all comes down to who you know and many of them know that special someone who can get that special off the grid activity you have always wanted to do.
10. Like any professionals they really do know more than a Google search engine.
You don't cut your own hair do you? Or fix your own leaky pipes? Just like any profession you want the person who specializes in that field and when it comes to travel that is what they know!
