Congrats on your engagement! It’s been a whirlwind of activity – setting the date, seeking out the perfect venue, reading all the wedding planning blogs, and finding the perfect dress….but don’t forget a VERY important part of your wedding planning – your honeymoon!
Have you found a travel advisor to help you with your honeymoon planning? If not, I’m here to help!
There are so many reasons to use a travel advisor for your honeymoon, and all of your travels – here are a few of my favorite reasons!
#1. A travel advisor will save you time.
You are already up to your elbows in wedding details, and there’s so much information on the internet about honeymoon planning – but who knows what is accurate and updated? Save yourself the time (and loads of stress) by calling your travel advisor. Your travel advisor is updated on the current trends and travel protocols, and can do all the research for you, as well as customize a daily itinerary for your honeymoon….leaving you to focus on your big day!
#2. Travel advisors have connections that you don’t have.
It’s all about who you know, right? Travel advisors have more connections than the average Joe booking a vacation – this is what we do all day, every day! Let us put our connections to work for you – with our relationships to our travel partners, we can often get our clients special amenities, perks, and upgrades.
#3. You don’t know what you don’t know!
You can Google all day, but there are so many vacation options out there – and our job as a travel advisor is to listen to you and find out what you envision your honeymoon to look like, and then to present you with options. We LOVE finding special resorts and experiences for our brides and grooms that they didn’t even know were possible! Your honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so trust a professional to make it special.
#4. You have your own personal concierge when you use a travel advisor.
Things happen – missing passport, tropical storm, a family member gets sick, missed flights. When you have a travel advisor, we are right here to support you – not only when you are traveling, but for any question you may have from the moment we start planning. It’s your honeymoon – don’t book this online! You deserve to have your own concierge to help you every step of the way.
#5. A travel advisor will save you money on your honeymoon.
You might assume that using a travel advisor will cost you money – and that’s a myth! Using a travel advisor to plan your vacation may actually save you money, since travel advisors often have access to pricing that consumers don’t have, and travel advisors are regularly keeping an eye out for special promotions that can help their clients. In addition, when you use a travel advisor you are ensuring that there are no surprise or “hidden” costs – they can work with you to stick to your budget.
When you are ready to start dreaming about your honeymoon, contact your travel advisor and they can start working their magic!
