Travel Advisors Can Help By:

by | Jun 28, 2019 | General Information | 0 comments

Ever wonder if a Travel Advisor can help you? After all, you can find it all on the internet, right?

While you can find a number of deals on the internet, that may not be all that is available, and sometimes it may not be the best value. Travel Advisors have access to the same prices everyone else does, and using a Travel Advisor doesn’t cost you more. The rate charged is the same, whether you use a Travel Advisor or not.

A Travel Advisor can help you by:

Giving you ideas – Many times you may not even know what to look for.

Advising you on the best vacation for you – From which cruise line and even ship in the line, which hotel, which all-inclusive resort, etc. a Travel Advisor has access to a number of things and can help you know which is right for you.

Making hotel and resort reservations – While this is easily done by you online, a Travel Advisor can many times find you the same price but with some extras you wouldn’t normally get.

Help you with anything travel – The best Travel Advisor will let you know when you are better off making your own arrangements. For example, unless your domestic airfare (and sometimes international) is included in a package, you may find a better deal on your own.

We do our best to help you find the best value. Some things may be worth it to you to pay a little extra to get just what you want. That’s finding you the best value.

The Best Cruise Line

Book a Cruise Now? or Wait?

Let me first explain that while I am a Travel Advisor, and I get paid commission for helping you book your cruise (or hotel, or resort stay, or well...), I want you to have the information you need to decide what vacation will be best for you. I don't want you to come...

COVID-19 “Vaccines” and Travel

If you are "vaccinated" or not, there are rules for travel, especially foreign travel. Some countries require a "vaccination" (sometimes with a negative test, sometimes no test is necessary), sometimes they only require a negative test or proof of recovery in a...

Waiting on Passports

If you are in need of renewing your passport, or getting your first, consider doing it soon. Current wait times for a passport that is not expedited, is anywhere from 12 to 18 weeks. Many countries require your passport to be in effect for at least 3-6 months after...

To Cruise or Not to Cruise, That Is the Question

It seems that just when you think you know the rules, everything changes again. If you are like me, you want to get on a cruise ship. I prefer to not cruise in the summer, so I'm not planning to cruise anytime real soon. However, I sometimes wonder when I should...

Travel Scams: Beware

Will You Be Travelling Soon?

Some of you may want to travel internationally, whether by flying or by cruise. More and more countries are requiring you to have a COVID-19 vaccine. Some won't let you in without a vaccine, but some will allow you in as long as you quarantine upon arrival. Each...

Passports

Do you need to renew your passport, or get your first one? Well, they are taking longer than usual. Wayne had to renew his as it was about to expire. We heard 10-12 weeks. Yes, that is a long time. I am happy to say, though, that his passport renewal took a little...

One of Our Disney Surprises

One year I wanted to surprise my husband and take him to Disney World. I told the children what I was planning and they were excited that just the two of us would have a trip for ourselves. Well, my story and our reveal is in this video. Enjoy....
