Utilize a Local Travel Agent
As exciting as it is to become engaged and to plan a wedding, it can also be stressful. With so many decisions to make, it makes sense to bring helping hands onto your team to assist with many of the details.
Engaged couples hire professionals to make their day special. A bride would seldom think of catering her own reception and a groom would seldom set up a tripod and take photos of his own wedding. When substantial money is being spent and with only one chance to make it perfect, couples rely on specialists with years of experience in their area of expertise. Honeymoon planning is no exception.
For the perfect honeymoon, couples should not take a chance by planning it themselves just because it might seem easy to do on the Internet. A travel agent is the specialist who can help make a honeymoon the memorable, amazing, romantic experience it is meant to be.
Perhaps the most important yet little known fact about honeymoon planning is that there is no cost to utilize a travel agent’s experience, expertise and knowledge. Travel agents generally do no charge a fee to book a honeymoon through their travel agency. The resorts and tour operators pay travel agents when booking their properties; there is no premium paid by the traveler when booking through a travel agent. When travelers book their own vacations, they are paying for a service they are not receiving. Travel agents’ commissions are already built into the prices the consumer pays, whether or not they utilize a travel specialist.
Agents are trained experts and know how to sort through the myriad of travel information available. They spend all day, every day, researching the best possible vacation options for their clients. A travel agent literally has a world of travel information at their fingertips, saving brides and grooms countless hours of online searching.
Saving time and eliminating stress are both reasons couples turn to travel agents for help in planning their honeymoon. From an intimate knowledge of destinations to assisting before, during and after a trip, professional travel agents offer unique expertise and are there when clients need them the most. It’s nice to have the sense of security that comes with knowing there is somewhere to turn if help is needed while away from home.
Travel agencies are one-stop shops. They will handle every aspect of your honeymoon, from airline tickets to lodging, ground transportation, activities, tours, private romantic dinners and more. A travel agent will make sure you have everything you need before you step foot in an airport, including travel documentation, trip insurance and passports. Agents also have access to exclusive deals and are versed in finding you the best products for the best value – all that fit your budget, personality and unique honeymoon needs.
Like other professionals, travel agents attend seminars and trainings to keep a constant pulse on changes and trends in destinations, resorts and airlines. Many have visited properties themselves and can give you a firsthand account of what the resort is really like. Hot honeymoon destinations include Turks & Caicos, Riviera Maya Mexico, Costa Rica, Los Cabos and Hawaii. You want a private plunge pool right outside your door? A seasoned travel agent can tell you which resorts can fulfill your every desire.
There is a peace of mind to plan and travel knowing there is real, live person who will help you in the event of a delay, cancellation, lost luggage or some other unforeseen circumstance. There is enough stress when planning a wedding; a travel agent will take care of every detail of you honeymoon so you can focus on your big day and marrying the one you love.
