Should You Hire a Travel Agent For Your Honeymoon?
Whether you are a globe trotter or not, your honeymoon will be one of the most memorable travel experiences of your life. It’s usually longer, more expensive, and more luxurious than any travel you have experienced. Not to mention, it will be your first time on vacation together as newly weds. Trust us, it is quite the epic experience!
Now that we have established how important the honeymoon is, it’s time to talk about the logistics. Booking a lavish honeymoon is so much easier when done with a travel agent. If you are going for an all inclusive resort, you could possibly do with out one but for the purpose of this blog we’ll be talking about logistically heavy honeymoons that involve hotel changes, city changes and all that!
Here are 5 reasons why you should hire a travel agent to help plan your dream honeymoon!
Exclusive savings and offers. Travel agents have networks and connections across the tourism and hospitality industry. They have access to perks that you would not have as a traveller booking on your own. Some agents can get you room upgrades, flight upgrades and so many other perks. Be sure to ask your agent what their perks and advantages are for you.
It’s easier. If you and your new hubby are planning to travel to multiple cities and change your hotels – then an agent will be a necessity for you. They will create your trips timeline, organize check ins, check outs, travel between hotels and all of your events in between. Nothing will make life easier while wedding planning than having a travel agent or advisor by your side.
Agents will introduce you to new travel ideas You may have gone to a few countries in your time and have an idea of where you want to go for your honeymoon but an agent will opeon your eyes to destinations, hotels and places you have never been or thought of. It’s a great way to get new and unique ideas. Remember, the good agents will introduce you to new ideas while others might just go with whatever you suggest. Be sure to “interview” your agent before booking with them.
They have inside information The last thing you want is to show up at a hotel and it is nothing like what you saw online – believe me, it happens. An agent will know many hotels because either they have visited it themselves, their colleagues have visited, or they have heard about it. Either way, they know more than us about travel and hotels so it is a great source of real information.
If there are issues while travelling, you can contact your agent While travelling with a logistically heavy honeymoon, you might experience some bumps on the way. Your agent serves as a point of contact is anything goes wrong or if you need help.
With all of this said, the most important tip is to make sure you shop a few agents before booking one. Don’t book the first agent you meet. Interview a few of them, get a feel of their knowledge of the industry and then make an informed decision. You want to make sure you have the best and easiest honeymoon experience!
