Why should you use a travel agent?

Well, let’s start off with this – most people don’t realize that using a travel agent is completely free! Destinations such as Disney, Universal, cruise lines, all inclusives and more, have built in the comission of a travel agent into their cost, whether you use them or not. Booking your trip with a travel agent does not cost any more than booking it yourself, the benefits of using a travel agent can be priceless. But in some cases, being free isn’t enough. You need to see the value in using something, right? Well I’m about to show you…

A recent survey conducted by AAA showed that 85% of adults find value in working with a travel agent. There were several reasons, let’s take a closer look at some.

Expert Guidance

have both the knowledge and firsthand experience to help you decide which destination or resort is best for you. I provide you with a wide variety of travel options from a number of different travel suppliers to countless popular destinations. I have all the travel information you need – from the best attractions to see, the most exciting activities to do, and the most affordable way to get there…I’ve got it covered! Ask anyone who’s been stuck on a vacation they thought would be wildly different because of what they thought they were getting. This is how invaluable the expertise of a travel agent can be.

Value

It’s understandable that you may feel limited by your vacation budget. That’s why I’m dedicated to help you receive the best possible value. When you compare the vacation packages that I can offer you with what’s available via an online or discount website, please know that you’re probably not comparing apples to apples. The hotel I’ve selected is in a locale I think you will like, based on what you’ve told me. The room I have reserved for you is guaranteed in its category, meaning when you check in, you won’t be given different accommodations, based on what the desk attendant’s chooses or hotel availability. Plus, if you’re looking at a website that brags that it has the lowest pricing available, you’ll likely be getting the lowest quality room available. You also will receive price monitoring from me, with complimentary adjustments if something comes along that your vacation package qualifies for.

Personalized Service

As your personal travel agent, I’ll devote time & effort to making sure you’re happy with your travel options. If you need any assistance I’m just a text, phone call, or email away, so you’ll receive the immediate attention you not only need, but also deserve. My favourite part of my job, and something that the internet can’t do, is talk to you and listen to your wish list and trip priorities. I take into account your preferences and needs and match you to your perfect vacation.

Customer Advocate

In the rare case that something on your trip doesn’t go as planned, I’ll be here to resolve the problem, so you can relax and enjoy. If something goes amiss when you’re on your trip, I am available at all times to help you. Don’t be shy and say you didn’t want to make a fuss. You’ve paid money for this vacation and I’m your advocate. Little things that can interrupt your experience can typically be fixed quite easily and that’s what I’m here for.

Time Savings

I know exactly where to go to get the information that you need and can find your travel options within seconds. Planning a vacation with me will save you both time and money because with some effort and organization, I’ll handle all your travel arrangements. I also sit on the phone or in internet waiting rooms for hours for you so you don’t have to!

Unbiased Information

You can be assured that I’ll do my best to make your travel experience as wonderful as possible. When you book travel through me, I work for you – not the travel supplier, so my main concern is always you and your unique needs. I have experienced and have first-hand knowledge and reviews of destinations, hotels and resorts that you may be interested in. I will also be honest if I truly think that something is not for you.

If none of this sounds appealing, using a travel agent is still free and you’re supporting a small business, which helps support my family! Not a corporation, that will keep the money and use it to buy more yachts, jets, and whatever else! If you want to support me by booking through me and keep control of all your plans yourself, we can make that happen as well!

Having unique experiences makes life amazing! I’m dedicated to offering you the best prices & advice, while maintaining an emphasis on customer service. DO make travel a priority in your life. Every moment is precious and if you keep putting off that family vacation or that couple’s getaway, you may never do it and only end up with regrets. Let me design a trip for you that will create many wonderful experiences and fabulous memories!

A bit about Disney specifically….

Disney is a beast all of it’s own, and not something you can just “wing it.” It truly requires a lot of planning to have an enjoyable experience. You do not want to invest that kind of time and money and be disappointed when it’s all said and done.

✨ I guide you, plan an amazing trip for you, help you get the most bang for your buck, apply discounts if/when they are released, wait on hold for hours to handle any issues that may arise so you don’t have to, & keep you in the loop with covid protocol!

✨I help with your dining at 6 a.m. when it opens, help you pick which parks work best for your family, & when to go! I’ll help plan your trip and make sure you get the most out of it. I’ve been to Disney dozens of times. I have eaten at many of the restaurants. I have stayed at, toured, or dined at almost all of the resorts. I”ve been on every single ride in WDW numerous times (even Mission Space 🤮). When I tell you I know Disney, I KNOW Disney. I don’t even need a GPS to navigate around its 40 square miles of 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, Disney Springs and more than 30 resorts. Insane, I know, but I’m serious when I say I know Disney like I know my hometown.

✨It’s something I’m truly good at and enjoy…I can plan the best of the best Disney trip! I live Disney, I love Disney, I know Disney and I use my expertise to create the perfect trip for you based on your likes, dislikes, must sees & dos! Motion sickness? I know what to avoid! Food allergies? I got you covered! Thrill seeker?! Let’s get you going! I’m your girl for all things Disney!

I can help plan almost any vacation, but as you can guess, I specialize in Disney and Universal.
