Is it still a “thing” to be a travel agent/consultant?
The New York Times, U.S. News & World Report, Forbes and other news outlets have made it official: travel agents (also known as travel consultants and/or specialists) are “back.” For many, it has become so difficult and time-consuming to plan travel on the Internet, people are seeking help from those who specialize in planning travel. Considering how valuable your time is, and how precious your vacation days, this trend makes sense to me.
As a Custom Travel Consultant I help individuals who are:
Travel Planning Haters: people who feel overwhelmed by the time and legwork it takes to research a trip, and who are frustrated with the wealth of both reliable and unreliable information overflowing from the internet. To you I say: bring it on and let me help you out. It’ll be fun.
Travel Planning Lovers: people like me who love to research and plan their own trips. To you I say: bring it on and show me what you’ve got. I’ll check it out and see if I can get you a better value and provide additional suggestions. It will be your choice whether to use me for booking, but we’ll still have fun while we’re at it. Hopefully I’ll persuade you that working in tandem is better for both of us.
Travel Planning No-Timers: those who are simply too busy with other projects and family commitments to spend the time needed to plan a satisfying trip. I can help.
Whichever description fits you, just call or email me, and let’s talk about how I can give you a hand with your next big trip.
