Why You Need a Vacation Travel Agent
Professional Travelers Know Best
Travel agents are much more than just professional travel planners. They’re also professional travelers. They’ve globetrotted from point A to point B – and usually everywhere in between – taking notes and making friends along the way. They’ve toured that hotel in Rome you’re considering for your whirlwind vacation in Italy; visited Walt Disney World to help customize a fun theme-park vacation for a family; and stayed at some of the most luxurious resorts and spas in the world to help you plan the perfect couple’s retreat.
All of this experience as pro travelers gives them brilliant insight into what makes a vacation special—insight used to your advantage when they help you plan your ideal vacation. Debunking typical travel agent myths, Vacation's travel agents can help you plan every travel experience, from a luxurious beachfront vacation to a fun-filled family adventure to a destination wedding on an exotic island to an immersive European river cruise! Regardless of what your next vacation may be, you should read this article to discover what our travel agents bring to the table and the value-added experiences you won't find anywhere else.
The Travel Leaders Group Advantage
Vacation’s parent company, Travel Leaders Group, is the largest travel agency network in North America. And thanks to the company’s size, we have both the buying power and the resources to offer you unique value-added amenities and more. We’ve spent years building valuable relationships with our partners in the travel industry including cruise lines, tour operators, hotels and car rental companies. Our best-in-class partners know how to take excellent care of you – our valued customers – no matter what type of vacation you plan on taking next.
Travel agents are often certified as specialists in multiple destinations, cruises, resort chains, destination weddings, safaris, luxury vacations and more. They use that knowledge to help you cut through the time-consuming clutter and confusion to zero in on the information that matters most to you. A Vacation travel agent doesn’t need to read through 800 Trip Advisor reviews to discover which resort is the ideal place for you. They have experienced many of them first-hand and also collect all of their own feedback from their clients.
Our travel agents get to know you by asking detailed questions about your past travel experiences, your general likes and dislikes, and your future travel aspirations. We then use that information to pull together a comprehensive vacation plan that is perfectly suited to you.
Group Bookings Made Easy
Vacation travel agents are experts at organizing all the details for destination wedding groups, multigenerational family reunions and small groups looking for special travel experiences. What’s a headache for most is actually fun for us! From coordinating flights for everyone to handling all your special needs, documentation and payments; we take care of all the details so that everyone arrives on time and they’re ready for an amazing vacay!
Support You Can Trust
Everyone wants their journeys to be picture perfect, so it’s best not to leave anything to chance. Our travel agents stick by your side to provide personalized service and valuable peace of mind before, during and after your trip.
A Vacation travel agent’s job is crystal clear: to make the travel planning process as easy and fun as possible. To accomplish that, they use their expertise to give you only the best options and to handle every detail of making those options a reality. All that’s left for you to do is enjoy the anticipation of your upcoming journey. And if emergencies arise or flights get cancelled (as they sometimes do), your agent can handle all of the work involved in making things right so you don’t have to.
Thanks to our long-standing relationship with travel suppliers around the globe, Vacation travel agents have access to valuable discounts, one-of-a-kind offers and exclusive VIP privileges (hotel room upgrades, free Wi-Fi and champagne, etc.) you simply cannot obtain on your own. In fact, a recent study by the American Society of Travel Agents determined that travel agents save consumers an average of $452 per trip. And that’s just another reason why you should connect with a Vacation travel expert now!
