This is the last post in this series about - Myths About Travel Agents.
Myth No. 5. All travel agents are the same.
Absolutely not true at all!. It's like picking a lawyer, doctor or dentist. They need to be right for you and certified by the right organizations. I think people have to realize we are counselors and concierges and lifestyle planners. People should choose a travel planner the way they choose any other professional for what they are looking for.
Nelson and I are certified with many locations throughout the world. Like Jamaican Tourism Board; Spain; Puerto Rico; all the major cruise lines (some you may have never heard of) All depending on where you want to travel. Again also some of the major Tour Operators like Trafalgar Tours; Globus; and Collette and a list of other destinations, tour operators and other options to help with planning your vacations.
We service all clients throughout the United States, not just the Florida or New York area. We are also one of the few travel agencies out there that specialize in services for those who are disabled, mostly the blind community.
Cheryl Echevarria is legally blind and has been honored for her work in the travel industry from Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York State back in 2012 to some women organizations within the state of New York for all her work.
So when looking for a travel professional we are all not the same, we are not booking engines, so when we ask you all the questions we do about who, what, when, where and why, and then set up a time to speak face-to-face; video chat or on the phone. We are servicing our clients one at a time, which is your time with us and no one else.
Nelson and I hope you have learned and enjoyed this series with us about the myths about working with a travel professional; and maybe have changed your mind about going it alone. Let's set up a time to chat! Contact us here on our Contact Us tab for more information.
