A personal note from Ales!
As summer draws to a close and my son is starting school again next week, I look back with great appreciation for the trips we’ve taken and the wonderful time we spent together. We have spend 10 days in Alaska, some of you might have read my review in our July newsletter, and after that took a road trip from Vancouver to Southern California for 3 weeks discovering some beautiful places along the way.
In this month’s newsletter I would like to share about some of the advantages you have when booking your vacations and travel adventures with a travel professional. There are some points and misconceptions many people are not aware of but knowing them will help you to make a qualified choice when you decide to book your next journey.
The web is saturated with information about travel and you would probably have to scour the internet for days just to complete a decent comparison between cruise lines, tour companies or hotels. Doesn’t it make more sense for an educated travel professional to do your research and recommend itineraries based on his/her experience and expertise? We’re sure you’ve got better things to do with your spare time! A good travel professional can locate all the hidden gems and determine the best options for your journey.
There is a misconception that booking online is cheaper then booking with a travel agent. Most people don’t realize that as travel consultants we get the same rates as everyone else, in addition we have many tour operators, hotel wholesalers and air consolidators to choose from which gives us the opportunity to source out the best price for our clients.
It is possible that you will find a lower rate for a certain vacation package online, but did you know that a good travel professional will be able to match the price through one of the many tour operators? This will give you the benefit of getting the same lower price, plus you’ll have someone to be your advocate should you need assistance if something doesn’t go according to plan.
In our case, we’ve traveled the world over and have personal experiences in most of the countries we custom design journeys too. As professional travel advisers we receive first hand insights and more reliable and relevant information than you would be able to get from online reviews.
As travel consultants we analyze all the different options, whether it’s finding the best flights, the perfect vacation home for your family reunion or the most romantic sites for your honeymoon. From beginning to end you will be taken care of so that your entire experience will feel like a vacation.
We work for you and will do everything we can to meet your travel needs and we literally go that extra mile to help our clients.
I hope that this helps to understand some of the advantages of using a travel professional for making the arrangements for your next journey. If you have any questions or would like to find out more about how we can make your vacation an unforgettable experience, please feel free contact me anytime.
I’ve been passionate about travel ever since I can remember. Having had the opportunity to travel all around the world for many years it’s my greatest desire to enrich peoples lives in a profound way by creating unforgettable journeys, and give each of my clients the amazing experiences I’ve had throughout my travels.
By allowing me to design your journeys, you can be assured that you will be taken care of from the moment we start planning your vacation until the moment you return. Contact me and let me know where you would like to go or let me help you find the destination that will give you the experience you are looking for.
May all your travels stir your soul and change your life forever – Ales.
