You need a travel Agent because.....

We are educated and have personal experience.

We have insider tips and advise on each location.  We use our continuing travel training and personal experience to guide your vacation decisions.  We work hard to provide you with the best vacation possible for you and your hard earned investment.  Travel agents

 have access to personal feedback from hundreds of clients, as well as our own personal travel agent network, to provide insights you can't get on TripAdvisor or other social media sites.  

We Have Clout

As Travel Agents, we develop personal relationships with the individuals and the companies we sell.  we use these relationships to get you the things you can't get on your own.  We can get you the "sold out" room or the connecting rooms you want for the extended family trip when the online sites say they aren't available.  We also have exclusive admissions to experiences you may not know are available.

We fix things.

In addition to getting you more on any particular trip, we step in and fix things when your trip goes awry.  The average consumer books one or two trips per year.  We are constantly selling and working with suppliers who we have leverage with to fix problems that may occur while traveling.  Suppliers value the business of us Travel Agents so they step up to make things to ensure the traveler and their travel agent, are happy. 

Time-Savings


Instead of searching blindly on the Internet for hours, days, or even weeks -  depending on the complexity of the travel plans - you can have an expert do the research for you, with your personal needs in mind.  They do it for every component of the trip and very often do it at no cost to you.


Safety Net


If anything should go wrong during your trip, you can rely on them to assist you.  A travel agent will suggest and arrange alternative travel arrangements, help you deal with any travel emergency you may have, and put you in touch with the right local people to answer your needs.  


On the Cutting Edge


They are on the cutting edge of what's new:  Travel Agents are the first to know about a new resort, cruise ship or tour.  They have relationships with their best travel partners who keep them . informed as to the latest and greatest offerings they have.  So if you want to travel on the latest and greatest, agents are the way to go!


You Pay the Same Anyway!!!


More than 98 percent of hotels are parity priced.  That means the cost is the same whether you book it yourself or have the travel agent do the work.  Some travel agents even have websites that feature the same inventory, bookable in real time, as Expedia or Orbitz.  The customer gets the best of the high tech world, in a high touch environment.  This parity pricing applies to virtually every travel product.


You get Matched Right


If you call a cruise line directly, they won't tell you that their competitor is a better fit for you and your travel needs.  Since travel agents sell everything, they focus on your particular needs, making sure you are matched up to the right vacation.


An Ongoing Mutually Beneficial Relationship


A good agent is like a good mechanic.  Once you find them, you'll never want to give them up.  Travel could be your biggest discretionary spend in any given year, along with your limited time, so you want to make sure it's done right..  When they make that happen, you'll want them in your inner circle moving forward.

Cost-Savings

We have access to benefits that can save you a lot of time and provide you with a better experience.  Free room upgrades, spa credits, food and beverage credits are just a few of the things we can get, that you can't get on your own.  We can also get your hard to get restaurant reservations, exclusive or priority access to attractions and added amenities that you can not get on your own.  (Ever wonder why the couple in the cabin next to yours got champagne and you didn't???  They used a travel agent.)
