Planning a vacation is an exciting time in your life. Whether it is an annual week-long vacation or the trip of a lifetime, you have worked hard to earn this much-needed time off. For some, planning a vacation is just as fun as taking it, but for most, it can be a stressful and overwhelming process. This is where travel advisors come in. They take the guesswork out of travel planning and act as your dedicated travel advisor before, during, and after your trip. 

If you have never booked a trip with a travel advisor before, here are five reasons why you should use one for your next vacation. 

They can save you time.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all you had to do to plan a vacation was click ‘book now’ and have the whole trip done? If you have ever planned a trip on your own, you know that planning and booking a trip takes a lot of time. Travel advisors are here to research, plan, and book your whole trip, saving you time and a headache!

They can save you money.

Some people think booking with a travel advisor is more expensive, but that is not always the case. Travel advisors can save you money and add more value to your vacation. Depending on what connections they have, you may be able to book some aspects of your trip with their discount or avoid paying unnecessary fees thanks to their insider knowledge. 

They know what’s new and exciting.

It is part of a travel advisor’s job to keep up with what is new and exciting in the world of travel. Not only do they know the best way to see historic landmarks, but they can also tell you the best new restaurants to try after a long day of walking, what fun local festivals to attend or which fabulous new hotel has the best view in town. 

They are detail-oriented.

Whether you are traveling with a big group or going on a vacation with a complex itinerary, your travel advisor will make sure your trip is planned to run as smoothly as possible. They will coordinate flight times and airport transfers, make sure you know how long it takes to get from your hotel to whatever landmark or museum you want to see and can make any dining reservations for you ahead of time. 

They can help if something unexpected happens.

If 2020 taught us anything, it is that travel plans can change in an instant. Rather than you spending hours on the phone trying to change flights, find a lost hotel reservation, or anything else that may arise, your travel advisor is there to handle all of that for you. 

They can provide travel inspiration. 

Are you ready to book your next adventure but aren’t sure where to go? Travel is about growing, being intentional, and experiencing new things. Rather than visiting the same all-inclusive resorts, your travel advisor can help you to step outside your comfort zone and plan a trip you would have never imagined but are sure to love!
