Simply put: experience, connections, access and assurance.
The firsthand experience of a travel advisor is second to none. Agents have been there, done that, and will give you the best advice on how to get the most out of your trip.
The connections an advisor makes are the keys to providing you with a memorable holiday experience. These connections allow advisors to meet or beat any other prices (including those found online), to provide room upgrades, to make hard-to-get reservations, to arrange guided tours, and to act as concierge.
A travel advisor will take into consideration your preferences, your likes and dislikes, any special needs you have, and will create a journey customized to you.
Even though most advisors charge a fee, in the end they can save you money... often a lot of money!
You can certainly plan a vacation yourself; if, however, you are planning a complex itinerary, or want to stay in high-end hotels, or need a guide, or are seeking the services of a local expert, or planning a trip to a destination that is unfamiliar, a travel advisor is your best resource to make your trip a success, and help you avoid making a costly mistake.
Still not convinced? One more thing to consider: things don't always go the way we plan. A travel advisor will be there to help you through those unexpected occurrences that happen sometimes. Miss your plane and need to make a new connection? Your travel advisor is the one person on whom you can rely to get you to where you need to be. Trains are running and you need to stay the night? Your advisor can find you a good hotel near your location. And he or she can put you in touch with local resources for other problems, to help you get them solved.
Travel advisor = peace of mind!
