2. What are the benefits of working with a Travel Advisor when I can just book travel online myself?

Yes, you could book your travel yourself with an online booking tool or do hours of research on the internet which is overflowing with an immense amount of information, as well as a host of both good and bad advice. The difference that comes with using a travel advisor is simple:

Savings

By using a Travel Advisor, you are automatically privy to savings, special pricing, value-add amenities and upgrades that you would not have access to otherwise. Hotels, airlines, and tour operators offer deals and packages that only registered travel agents can take advantage of. You cannot and will not get them on your own.

Your Travel Advisor as Your Advocate

As you travel more extensively, you cannot control storms, natural disasters, the political state of the region, etc. Traveling with an Advisor, you have someone on your side who has an in-depth knowledge of the airlines, hotels and tour operators. We are able to “skip the line” and get our clients where they need to be quickly.

A Lifetime of Memories

Leave your lifelong travel planning needs to someone who knows you and your travel preferences inside and out. Your trusted Advisor can plan those special trips you take throughout the rest of your life.
