You may have long looked to a network of trusted travel professionals to take you to the far corners of the earth. The pros who assemble many of the elaborate itineraries that appear on your social media newsfeeds, and since the dawn of the pandemic, their up-to-the-minute insights on shifting safety protocols have made them even more essential. If you don’t rely on them yet, now is the time to start.
Here, we’ll start to list reasons you need to book a trip with a travel professional this year and share some experiences we have ever put together—not just to show the scope and prowess of our work, but also to remind you of all the adventures ahead after a long year of staying close to home.
1. They make things work, no matter what!
We keep our clients happy by helping them move or defer bookings without incurring cancellation fees while ensuring that our service providers—the camps, lodges, and hotels—don’t lose bookings so that they can keep their heads above water.
2. You trust someone to safeguard your financial future—why not your travel future?
Our role is becoming similar to a financial planner in that we are part of our client’s team of advisers for their long-term plans. I have personally been referred by many financial planners and wealth advisers who understand the importance of a future travel portfolio or plan in retirement.
3. Because you can’t know everything!
It’s almost impossible to ask all the right questions. My job is to make sure my client understands how things will be different and to help them break through their assumptions about what they’ll encounter so they have the best experience possible. A travel professional will get things done that you don’t even know need to be done.
4. Travel professionals don’t take no for an answer!
Through sheer tenacity, I was able to get a client refunded over $18,000 from a tour operator who was not giving refunds.
5. They make you a better traveler!
COVID-19 will pass, but now we’re much more mindful of how we interact and travel. Now, you can use this as an opportunity to use travel for good, rather than be reckless consumers.
6. Travel professionals have the best tools at their disposal!
We know the health and safety protocols for each destination. Our tourism boards and partners have been in constant contact with updates, changes in safety regulations, and reassurance of care for our clients. Because we have ongoing personal relationships with our tourism partners, we can inspire our clients to explore the world again with confidence.
7. Because travel looks entirely different now
I expect there will be a growing interest in vacations that are longer as people want to enjoy slower travel—more time in less places. We’re able to tap our contacts to help parents navigate working and schooling remotely, creating the best experience for everyone involved.
