Has this ever happened to you? You find a great travel deal online and when you get there it is not what you expected at all. Yes, the pictures of the resort may be accurate but you find yourself among a crowd of people who are too young, too old, too quiet, or too loud. Not the crowd you were expecting at all. Now the vacation you have worked hard for and looked forward to for months is not what you wanted!
When this happens what do you do? To be honest there is not a lot you can do. You can either find a way to make the best of your vacation or you can have a miserable time. The choice is yours. BUT remember this experience the next time you want a vacation.
Had you booked through a Travel Professional then they would have found the right All-Inclusive for you and your traveling companions. If you want a resort where you party hardy with people your age, they can find the right one. If you want a romantic getaway for adults only, they can find that for you too. If you want a place where the kids can have an awesome time while the adults have their time, they can find that for you too. If you want just a nice relaxing getaway, then yes they can find the right place for you.
Your Travel Professional has YOUR best interests in mind. They do this all day, everyday for their clients. They are constantly training to keep up-to-date with the thousands of travel options that are available. They can quickly whittle down all those options to 2-3 to present to you, all that would work. They will go over those options with you and help you pick the best one that will work for you.
When a Travel Professional goes to work on a proposal for you it is ALL ABOUT YOU!! They save you time, money, and make the experience as stress-free as possible. When you book through a Travel Professional YOU get your own personal travel advocate. They are the ones who can go to bat for you if something is not right with your vacation.
If you book direct online, then you are on your own if anything goes wrong. I have seen it happen too many times. People will ‘use’ Travel Professionals to do the leg work for them, then thinking they are saving money will go and book it themselves online. Then when something goes wrong, they expect the Travel Professional to help them out. If the Travel Professional you call DID NOT book your vacation there is NOTHING they can do to help you should anything go wrong.
Remember your Travel Professional is your best friend when it comes to your vacation. They want to ensure you have the best time possible so they make sure the deal you get is the best one for you.
