Why you need a Travel Agent for your Destination Wedding

Overwhelmed with information and options on the internet?!  Here are a few reasons you should consider using a travel agent for your vacation, honeymoon or destination wedding.

1.  Personalized Service:  An online travel site is a computer that does not have your best interests in mind. Travel Agents understand what you want and what you value in your travel experience. A good agent will get to know you and your travel wishes and customize a trip to your needs. Aside from the personal service you receive while in the planning stages of your trip, you will have customer service while you’re on your trip too. Your agent is there for you before, during, and after your trip to ensure that you have a good experience and will address any issues along the way.

2.  Advice:  An experienced agent has very likely traveled to the destination and has firsthand knowledge and photos of the resorts that they recommend.  Experienced agents, unlike a web page, are experts in understanding complicated itineraries and travel to other countries.   They also can provide a variety of options based on price, availability, and preferences.

3.  Convenient One Point of Contact:  Agents can handle every aspect of your trip from flights, resort stay, ground transportation, activities, tours, insurance and more.  When guests have questions about the resort, destination, excursion options, travel questions – have them contact me so you don’t have to deal with it.  Brides and grooms have enough to handle, leave the guests to the TA.

4.  Time Savings:  Instead of spending hours checking multiple websites, why not go straight to the source?  A travel agent has all the information at their fingertips, saving you hours of searching.  The internet is a great tool, but many times information provided on online booking sites is inaccurate and photos are edited.

5. Best Value for Your Money:  Agents know where the values are. They have access to discounts and package rates that offer more for your money. They also know which resorts offer perks and comps for honeymoons or wedding groups.  And there are no extra fees to you or your guests.

6. Less Stress:  Planning a vacation, honeymoon, or destination wedding can be stressful. There are so many options and details to worry about.  Agents do the work resulting in less stress for you.  I provide booking updates of who has booked or inquired so you don’t have to keep track.

You may want to book your own travel when you only need a flight or a hotel in the U.S.  You should definitely use a travel agent for trips outside of the U.S., for group travel, a honeymoon, family vacation, or a destination wedding.
