How Does this Process Work?
Yes! You do need a Travel Advisor!
In today's world of instant access to unlimited information on travel options many wonder why they should plan their vacation with a Travel Advisor.
We take the time to get to know YOU and understand your travel style and what you like to do and see. We then match these to your budget, schedule and use our connections with the best travel providers. We are always here for you to talk to, answer questions you may have and design the perfect vacation for you. No website can provide personalized service the way we do!
It is our job to know the world's greatest destinations inside and out. Our expertise and resources give you an insider's view while planning your next vacation.
On average, people spend 10 or more hours and visit 20+ websites to plan and book a vacation on their own! Our extensive knowledge of cruise lines, resorts, airlines and tour operators mean that we can cut through the clutter and get you exactly the vacation you want in little time.
We have access to discounted, limited-time offers and exclusive benefits you cannot obtain on your own. Deals can change often therefore we do not post them on our website. If you do find a lower priced package, we can typically match it and often time beat it!
We custom tailor your vacation package to perfectly match your individual needs and wants, nothing cookie cutter here!
You never know when the perfectly planned vacation will hit a snag, like a missed connections, lost reservations at the hotel or a medical emergency. When you book with our Agency, you only need to notify us and we will take care of the complications for you.
Why book with a faceless website or app, when you can work with an experienced travel professional? Our Travel Advisors are trained to save you time & money?
What's the next step?
It is best to have an idea of what you are looking or prior to your initial contact with your Travel Advisor.
Some things to think about are:
What are your travel dates? Are they flexible?
Who will be traveling? Adults only? Are you bringing the kids?
What is your ideal budget? Will it work for your dream vacation?
What type of vacation are you looking for? (i.e. Cruise, All-Inclusive, Theme Park, or a Specialty Itinerary built to your specific needs, etc.)
Are you celebrating a special occasion? (i.e. Wedding, Honeymoon, Babymoon, Anniversary, Graduation, Retirement, etc.)
What destinations do you have in mind?
What kinds of things would you like to experience? (i.e. Scuba Diving, Surfing, Golf, Hiking, Relaxing, Volunteering, etc.)
Once you have a good idea of what you are looking for, contact us. You will chat with your Travel Advisor a bit more about your desired travel needs and then they will put together their recommendations. Once you have a quote, review it carefully. If you have any questions, want to make changes or look at alternate options, just ask!
When the perfect itinerary is completed you will be sent a few online booking tasks with credit card authorization. Upon completion your Travel Advisor will be able to reserve your trip. It is that simple!
What does this cost me?
We do not charge service fees for vacation packages*!
In most cases our Travel Advisors are compensated from the vendors we work with.
*At times we do charge a Plan-To-Go (PTG) deposit or an upfront planning fee. The PTG deposit is fully refundable after travel. The instances where one of these can be required are Destinations Weddings, Groups (5+ rooms), Disney World Vacations or Custom-made Travel Itineraries. These exceptions are due to the extensive time that goes into planning these types of vacations. Your Travel Advisor will let you know if either the PTG deposit or planning fee apply to your trip in your initial conversation.
That being said, our Travel Advisors only get paid if you actually book through us. If you happen to find a lower price for the exact same package elsewhere please let us know! In most cases we can price match and many times beat the pricing you find. BUT it must be for the exact same features, i.e. room type, flight class/schedule, etc. We will definitely work together to make sure that you have the best vacation and that you are able to benefit from our personalized service.
Not all travel arrangements may require a Travel Advisor, but there are certain trips you really shouldn't leave to chance. If you're looking for an unforgettable vacation experience, we may be the right fit for you. Again, our job is to find you the best value for your vacation dollar. A vacation that perfectly matches your budget and interests.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
