According to ASTA (the American Society of Travel Advisors), “Travel advisors have the knowledge and connections to know which hotels, resorts and tour guides would work best for you and to enhance your trip with one-of-a-kind experiences, tailored to your interests, that you’d never find on your own. They’ll also be there to smooth out problems that might occur along the way.” Sometimes we even have access to special discounts, perks, or even VIP treatment that you cannot get on your own.
We recommend that you spend some time on each of our pages to see if there is a travel advisor that seems best equipped to help you. We all are a bit unique in our experiences and our expertise. Or, if you want to reach out via the form on this page, we will do our best to match you!
Many times, a travel advisor does charge a fee for help with planning your vacation, especially if they are arranging a very elaborate itinerary. Fees can vary greatly, depending on the complexity of the trip. Most of our advisors offer a free consultation and will advise you then of their fee structure.
We get this question a lot when it comes to theme park vacations. In short, the answer is “of course you do”. When we plan your vacation to a destination such as Walt Disney World, you are still completely in control of your My Disney Experience. We are here to help guide and advise you with what you want the guidance and advice for.
We firmly believe that every investment should be protected, and your investment in your vacation is no different. Travel insurance protects a lot more than just cancellation. Especially when traveling internationally, you want to ensure you have access to health insurance and an ability to get home should an emergency arise. When we plan your vacation, we will always offer you a way to increase your peace of mind.
While we cannot guarantee your safety anywhere (including in your own home), there are resources you can use to make an educated decision for your personal safety. We recommend you start directly with the US State Department. This link: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel.html will take you to many different pages that have TONS of information on international travel and you can find country specific information through this site as well. We also recommend that you sign up for STEP (The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program) through the US Department of State. https://step.state.gov/step/
