Why Use a Travel Agent?
I save you time and hassle. There is so much information on the Internet it is easy to feel overwhelmed. My years of experience includes knowing where the best rates are, receiving feedback from my clients, making connections with suppliers, reading up on industry news, etc. So thanks to my expertise, I am able to zero in on the best options very quickly.
I have access to special pricing. Depending on the product, I have access to special pricing not available to the public. For those vacations where pricing is the same, most people prefer to keep the commission local instead of giving it to a larger corporation.
I protect your money and vacation time. Vacations are an investment and you only get so many days off work a year. I spend a lot of time inspecting the resorts and cruise ships I sell so I know the good from the bad. I've seen the product and know the destinations. I take time to get to know my clients so I can match you to the right experience.
All travel agents are not the same. I know you have a lot of choices when it comes to travel agents. Make sure whoever you choose has earned the proper credentials. If they have years of experience, is that from working full time as a travel agent or just based on years of their own personal travels? Ask your candidate if they actually tour the cruise ships and destinations they sell. Are they rated by real clients? Do they have a blog post? It's ok to interview your potential agent. Your time and money is too valuable to take a risk with someone who isn't experienced. Bliss Travel Service earned credentials: http://www.blisstravelservice.com/dominique.html
I can get you special treatment you can’t get on your own. Thanks to my relationships with travel suppliers, I often get amenities, upgrades and other special VIP touches that my clients don’t have access to. I love adding my own surprise touches.
I monitor price drops and current promotions. If you book directly with the cruise line or resort they will not call you if the price drops on your vacation. When I get alerted to a price drop I can automatically lower the price of your package.
I offer unbiased information. Cruise lines and resorts can only recommend their own product. I work for you and can offer and recommend a wide array of products to fit your needs.
I offer no hassle price matching on apples to apples vacations. Also, I work with suppliers that have low deposits and only work with travel agencies.
I am fortunate to have many wonderful clients. You can read my reviews on yelp, weddingwire.com, and more. http://www.blisstravelservice.com/testimonials.html
My job doesn’t stop when I book your travel. I make myself available for any questions that arise up until and during time of travel.
