Why Use A Travel Agent?

‘But I can book online myself!”

If I had a dollar for every time I heard that one… Why should you use a travel agent? Several reasons.

  1. I know more than you do. It is my job to learn as much as I can about destinations, cruise lines, tour operators and more. I am an Elite Cruise Counselor, certified by CLIA, and have achieved certifications with companies such as Uniworld, Seabourn, Princess, NCL, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Carnival and Marriott. I’ve been doing this for a while and I am very good at my job.
  2. Relationships with vendors. When you have a problem, you call a toll-free number. When my clients have an issue, I reach out to my personal contacts to get things handled in an efficient and effective manner. I have been cultivating these relationships for years.
  3. We fix problems. What happens when your flight is canceled? Or you are re-routed? Or have an issue on a cruise ship or at a hotel? I get issues resolved so you don’t have to waste precious vacation time on them. I am your advocate, always.
  4. You save money. Yes, it is true. You never pay more using a good travel agent and often get some extras (think a free shore excursion perhaps, a bottle of wine or an upgrade).
  5. You save time. We do the work and handle all the details. You save time. Plus, you’ll probably save some money, too (see above).
  6. We work for you. If you call a cruise line directly, they will sell you a cabin. But what if there is another cruise line that is a better fit for your needs? How will you know? We ask a lot of questions to determine the best fit for you. Travel is not a one-size-fits-all game.
  7. It’s a long-term relationship. The longer I work with you, the more I get to know about your likes and dislikes. I learn what is important to you and can tailor vacations accordingly. Try getting that kind of service from a search engine!
