Debunking Misconceptions of Working with a Travel Advisor
The Top Reasons People Don’t Work with A Travel Advisor… and Why Luxury Ventures Travel Clients Do
Of all your life priorities, your leisure time is one asset you can’t earn back. Those who spend their time wisely know that it pays dividends to work with a seasoned industry professional to fulfill their visions of experiences around the world.
Our travel advisors provide collaborative, completely customized service before, during, and after every trip. Whether you enjoy being involved in your vacation planning, or prefer that someone you trust takes the reins, our advisors are uniquely vested in your return on life.
Continue reading four of the top myths in working with a travel advisor… and how Luxury Ventures Travel clients actually feel.
You’ll have to give up control of your experience
Some feel that doing their own planning is empowering, and that giving it up will diminish their experience. Our clients are given the autonomy to decide the level of involvement that’s right for them, and this may even vary from trip to trip. If you enjoy research and planning, you’ll have a professional partner. If you prefer having your advisor handle all the details, they can do that, too. Either way, you’ll enjoy quality, customized service.
The Internet has all the travel answers you need
Travelers who don’t use a travel advisor tend to believe the Internet provides all the answers they need. LVT clients view their advisor as a trusted resource whose industry knowledge, global relationships, and personal experience add tremendous value, which makes the process of travel planning more enjoyable. The internet is overwhelming and not everything is as it appears online. A great advisor can validate your own research, and offer insightful recommendations to tailor each trip to your preferences, interests, and budget.
An advisor will only increase overall costs
Our clients know better than to believe an advisor adds to the cost of the trip. Reputable travel companies like LVT have access to industry technologies and relationships that cannot be accessed with an online search, ensuring real time availability and more accurate (or better) pricing. We also offer unparalleled value by securing VIP benefits, amenities, access, and extras that you can’t get on your own. To quote Warren Buffet, “Price is what you pay; value is what you get.”
The effort isn’t worth the value
If you don’t understand the value of a travel advisor, you may feel that the process isn’t worth the outcome. Our valued clients rely on their advisors to make the travel planning process more efficient and enjoyable, to save time and money, and to lend expertise that makes a world of difference. A Luxury Ventures Travel advisor also works on your behalf before, during, and after every trip. That’s peace of mind you can bank on.
