Why Use A Travel Specialist?
While all the photographs of the resorts are beautiful, what you can’t tell from mere pictures is how well the resort is maintained, the quality of the staff and service, and the general atmosphere of the resort. How do you know if the resort it is right for you? Perhaps you love to shop, but you are nowhere near the local markets. Maybe you want to focus on relaxation, but the resort specializes in nightlife. What if you want to sample the local cuisine, but the resort is all-inclusive and off the beaten path? These are the kind of insights The Vagablonde can provide.

It Costs More to Use a Travel Agent.
Not the case at all, even though consumers have access to a multitude of “lowest price” sites. We all know cheapest is not always best. The travel agent looks for a quality product, with preferred, reputable travel wholesalers that we have negotiated with to provide competitive pricing and/or upgraded values. You don’t pay more for the same product when you use a travel agent; you get quality and value, plus the added bonus of services a good agent can provide!
Travel Specialist Charge Crazy Fees for Their Services.
We are compensated for our time and services from the travel wholesalers that we purchase our products through. This fee is already incorporated into the pricing and is NOT an additional charge regardless if you purchase it yourself online, except now you have the services of Travel Specialist. So why not have a professional assist you and do the legwork for you. When you book online they keep the money, give little service and you do all the work.
Travel Specialist Do Not have My Best Interest in Mind, They Just Want to Make a Sale.
Travel Specialist, like anyone else try to earn a living, this much is true. Choosing a career as a travel agent isn’t a decision made out of a love for money. A good agent does what is best for their client even if it’s advising them against an option that would better benefit the agent financially. We know our clients have other choices, and while every industry has their unethical players, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction and integrity; repeat business and referrals are crucial to our service oriented industry.
