I often hear, “why should I use a Travel Advisor?”

Here are some Pros and Cons of using a travel advisor and I hope this will help answer your questions.


Expertise and Knowledge: Travel advisor are professionals who have extensive knowledge and expertise in the travel industry. They can provide valuable advice and guidance based on their experience, helping you make informed decisions about your trip.

Time-saving: Planning a trip can be time-consuming, especially when it involves researching destinations, comparing prices, and making bookings. A travel advisor can handle these tasks on your behalf, saving you time and effort.

Personalized Service: Travel advisor can tailor your trip to your preferences and requirements. They can suggest destinations, accommodations, and activities that align with your interests, ensuring a more personalized and enjoyable experience.

Access to Deals and Discounts: Travel advisor often have access to exclusive deals, promotions, and discounts that may not be readily available to the general public. They can help you find the best prices and maximize your travel budget.

Assistance and Support: If any issues arise during your trip, such as flight cancellations or accommodation problems, a travel advisor can provide assistance and support. They can act as a point of contact and help resolve any challenges you may encounter.


Service Fees: Some travel advisor charge service fees for their expertise and services. While these fees can vary, they may add to the overall cost of your trip. It’s important to clarify the fees upfront to avoid any surprises. – We do not charge to book a cruise for you.

Limited Control: When you rely on a travel advisor, you are entrusting certain aspects of your trip planning to them. This means you may have less control over specific details, such as choosing flights, accommodations, or activities, compared to booking directly. – We work closely with our clients to ensure your trip is what you want.

Lack of Independence: If you enjoy the thrill of researching and planning your own trips, using a travel agent may take away some of the independence and hands-on involvement you desire. It depends on your personal travel style and preferences. – We understand this. We recommend that you do some research and give us as much information as possible to ensure that the trip exceeds expectations. For instance, if you have a cruise in mind, let us book it for you.  We can often get some extra freebies, ie On Board Credit, Dining Passes, Bottle of Wine, etc. It does not cost you as a buyer anything and it helps a small business stay in business.

Availability and Communication: Depending on the travel advisor’s workload and availability, it may take time to receive responses or updates. If you prefer immediate communication and real-time adjustments, relying on a travel advisor may not always provide the speed you desire. – There is some truth to this, but we strive to take care of our clients in a timely manner.

Ultimately, whether or not to use a travel advisor depends on your individual needs, preferences, and the complexity of your trip. It can be beneficial for those seeking convenience, expert advice, and a personalized touch, but it may not be the ideal choice for every traveler.
