Some people love fixing cars, some people love programming websites, some people love running. We love travel, research and planning vacations. Mom’s Guide To Travel was born out of our obsession with travel planning and consulting.
We’ve found that most people love to travel but don’t know how to start when it comes to planning their family vacations. They may not have the time or desire to go through the rigorous process of research and itinerary planning. Or they can’t figure out how to make a vacation work within their budget.
Does any of this sound like you?
Let’s face it. The internet provides a host of choices for arranging travel. However that overabundance of choice can make the travel planning process overwhelming. This is compounded when you don’t know where to start or are limited on time and patience.
Why work with Travel Consultants?
Time is money and money is time. Most people want to save both. A travel consultant will undisputedly help save you time and get the best value for your experience.
What’s the difference between a travel consultant and a travel agent?
There are a dozen differences that separate the two. Think of a consultant as your trusted advisor. Their service tends to be more highly personalized and boutique.
The Consultant provides impartial advice and insight that you may not get from a travel agent. Agents focus on commissions. Travel consultants focus on clients.
A consultant won’t suggest a travel product because she’s getting a cut of the sale. She suggests what she’s personally experienced or of which she has in-depth knowledge.
As a parent, when you give up the reigns to someone to plan your family’s vacation, you expect them to perform a certain level of due diligence. And if you don’t expect it, you should.
Travel consultants takes the time to know you personally asking you questions that a travel agent probably wouldn’t bother asking.
This article highlights some other differences between the two. Whatever fits your preference for level of service will determine which of the two works for you.
- understand the value of time
- are looking for a highly personalized service that operates as a collaboration
- prioritize memorable experiences over bargain hunting
