5 Ways Using a Travel Advisor Beats Booking On Your Own   

While the internet is a great tool for initial research when planning your getaway, nothing saves you more time or headache than the personalized experience and knowledge of a professional travel advisor.  

Here’s why:

1) More bang for your buck

Travel advisors create and maintain relationships with cruise lines, resorts, hotels as well as  other suppliers, and have access to the best rates and exclusive pricing.  As part of the Avoya Travel Network, we have access to exclusive deals that can’t be found online. 

2) Cherries on top

Repricing, onboard credits, cabin upgrades, special amenities…the list goes on.  We know whom to ask and where to look to secure you those extra perks that will make your vacation more memorable.

3) You’ve got a friend

We have extensive travel experience and can assist when you might be in an unfamiliar place. We will advise you on travel information and answer questions you may have about your journey and destination. In the event of delay or cancellation, instead of waiting on the phone for hours stuck on hold, a travel advisor can help book you on the next available flight, secure a last minute hotel room, and much more to ensure that you get to your destination and your vacation is everything you want to be.

4) One size does not fit all

As we get to know you better, we can pair you with the best destinations and excursions for your particular taste and budget. We will also advise you on the best times to travel to your favorite vacation spots to help you get the most out of your time and money.

5) Time is money

We can save you time by helping you determine  where you want to go and the best way to get there.  A travel advisor can help you be aware of hidden costs like taxes, port fees, etc.  Our commission comes directly from the Vendor – so using a travel advisor doesn’t cost you any more than if you book yourself.  And because of the relationships with suppliers, we can usually save you money.
