Counting down from number 5, the reasons to not book on your own romance travel are …
#5 – All Those Photos and Online Reviews Don’t Really Tell You Much
We’ve all be in this situation. When looking at places online we see that six people love the hotel, but there are always those one or two who hated it. The pictures and images look wonderful! But, can you trust that the place will look like that when you arrive? You really need more information to make an informed decision. Why take the risk and do it on you own?
#4 – When you Book on Your Own, You Are on Your Own
It’s just a reality, booking on your own gives you less protection. Have you ever booked a room, and then not been given the room you booked? Or even had to take a room in an alternate hotel? Since the on-line guys do NOT use wholesale contracts, whether or not you get the room you booked is solely at the whim of the hotel manager! We use sources that have the hotel under contract. So, say you and one other couple are in the lobby late at night waiting to check in but, only one room is available. You booked with us (an agent who has a contract), but the other couple booked own their own. Guess who would get that room? You would!
#3 – When Book With Us, You Will Have a Reliable Source of Info Who Has Your Best Interest in Mind
This is the relationship that no on-line booking site can replicate. We like to get to know our clients. We learn about what they want, what they like and what they don’t like. We have been to the places our clients want to go, so we can tell them what to expect! We know what the atmosphere is like, what the customs are, the cool little places to go, and the places to avoid. Do you really think the customer service desk at those on-line places are staffed with a person who has actually been where you are going?
#2 – It What you Don’t Know That Can Cost You PLENTY
There is a ton of information out there; but there is even more MISinformation waiting to take you by surprise. Do you always know the difference? If you don’t know the right questions to ask, you can get into trouble in a hurry. None of us know what we don’t know! This is why experience and travel specialist certifications matter. For example, those big on-line travel and hotel sites can’t tell you which countries have exit taxes that must be paid in cash at the airport. Or, which countries won’t let you in unless your passport is valid for 6 months after your travel.
With us working for you, you will have a source of information that will be pro-active and not re-active. You won’t have to worry if you are asking all the right questions because we know what information you will need, and we will make sure you have it before you leave.
#1 Reason – We Can Save You Time and Money!
Do you REALLY want to spend all that time comparing rates, reading reviews, checking a bunch flight schedules, venturing from website to website just to see if you can save yourself $50? Do you have time to explore every hotel at each location you are interested in? Missing out on a great vacation simply because you don’t have the time to check it all out or just became overwhelmed?
Wouldn’t it just make more sense to pick up the phone and talk to us for 5 minutes? Then go about your life while we work out all the details and confirm all your bookings for you? Remember, we don’t charge you for our services! What do you have to lose?
