If finding a Pittsburgh honeymoon travel advisor isn’t on your wedding planning to-do list, it absolutely will be after reading this. Our friend Jaimie Hanson of Jaimie’s Going Places is sharing her expert advice and the five biggest reasons why you definitely want to work with a professional when it comes to planning your post-wedding vacay. From saving you money to navigating last minute schedule changes to recommending the best destinations, accommodations, and entertainment that suit your needs, here’s why you should be working with a travel advisor to plan your honeymoon.
1.) It’s free.
It’s a common misconception that all travel advisors charge an additional service fee for helping you to book your trip. While some do, many do not; they offer their services complimentary simply for booking with them. Travel advisors are compensated for their services by the travel supplier after you travel. This means you will pay the exact same price you would as if you booked the vacation package on your own.
2.) They can get you the biggest bang for your buck.
Travel advisors are there to help you find the best value for your vacation time and dollars. In some cases, this can mean better rates, exclusive amenities, or additional perks when booking with us. We are here to help you make informed decisions, navigate the millions of options out there, and find the best vacation for your needs, time, and budget. After you book, we continue to monitor your package and make sure you never miss out on additional savings or price reductions that apply to your trip. Of course, any savings go right back to you!
3.) They have connections.
When booking your vacation, we only work with trusted sources and suppliers known for their reputations within the travel industry. Our preferred partnerships allow us to find the best rates, offer the best incentives, and give you peace of mind knowing you’ve booked with a trusted travel source.
4.) They are with you through the entire process until you safely return home.
Let’s face it – stuff happens when you’re traveling. Flights get delayed, luggage gets lost, a resort makes a mistake on your reservation, the world shuts down because of a global pandemic. The next thing you know, you’re stuck in the airport wondering what to do, and all you have is a phone number in your back pocket and an estimated hold time of at least two hours for the next customer service representative. When you work with a travel advisor, we are here in case stuff happens when you are traveling. We will make phone calls on your behalf, help if changes need to be made on the fly, and work with those trusted preferred suppliers to get your trip back on track.
5.) They offer a personalized touch.
Your honeymoon is a big deal! It’s your first trip together as a married couple, your chance to relax and recharge after all that planning and build-up of the wedding day, and it’s a way to celebrate one of the biggest moments of your life with your new significant other. The last thing you want to do is leave it up to the Internet without talking to a travel professional first. A travel advisor will want to get to know you as a couple. We want to know your likes, your dislikes, and what is most important to you when choosing destinations, hotels, transportation, and activities. We will ask you at least fifty questions to understand your travel preferences so that we can offer informed and reliable recommendations and give you the once-in-a-lifetime experience you have always imagined.
