Travel Management

How i work as a professional travel advisOR:

 

You will find that consulting a professional travel advisor, not only will enhance the experiences you have on your vacation, but the planning will be less stressful and less time-consuming for you. Advisors are compensated for their time, expertise and the resources they deploy on your behalf.  Travel management ranges from $35 for a simple air only booking, to upwards of $250 per traveler based on the intricacy of the itinerary, length of travel and number of passengers. 

Getting to Know you and your travel style

When I start a relationship with you with a Discovery Consultation, we'll chat with you about:

  • The main experience you are looking for… romantic, adventurous, relaxing, family bonding, exciting, celebratory, educational…?

  • Are you hoping for an upscale experience or is price the primary factor?

  • Do you like the excitement of crowds or something a little quieter?  

  • Do you prefer a well-known and popular or more exclusive experience?

  • Do you want to cruise to absorb exciting new destinations or enjoy superlative amenities on the high seas, with whiz-bang features such as skydiving and surf simulators, a planetarium and even a frosty ice?

  • Your dining preferences - fine dining, comfort food, exotic, familiar, buffets, bistros…?

  • Experiences - spa, golf, biking, snorkeling, museums, shopping, sightseeing, relaxing…?

  • Do you like to explore the local culture, or do you prefer to stay in the resort? Is it important to you to be where you’ll find familiar shops or restaurants?

  • Do you like to explore on your own, or do you like guided tours or both?

  • Have you done any research or booked online?

 

I want you to be confident that we are establishing the right expectations for you and your vacation from the very beginning.  I will then provide you with a Service Agreement with our professional fee. Once you’ve approved the Service Agreement, I will begin designing and securing travel reservations.​
