Travel With Destination E

Are You Covered?

Travel Advisors can help you secure a travel insurance quote to protect your travel investment. Travel insurance is not required to travel but is highly recommended. In addition, you want to make sure you’re covered if unforeseen complications occur like severe weather or medical emergencies. Most travel insurance companies offer 24/7 emergency assistance, concierge services, medical coverage, and more. In these times, putting out a few hundred dollars for travel insurance is better than losing out on thousands of dollars if you must cancel your vacation.

I have been in two situations where I was glad I purchased travel insurance. I had to cancel an entire trip for severe weather conditions one time. After filing a claim, I received full reimbursement for the non-refundable trip costs. The second time, my travel companion had a minor medical emergency while we were away. We called the insurance provider, and they gave us a list of nearby medical facilities. The representative reached out to the medical staff to let them know we were on our way and followed up with us to make sure everything went well. If you are ever in a similar situation, make sure to keep the discharge summary/receipts in a safe place so you can file a claim when you return home and possibly get reimbursed for the medical expenses.

I encourage you to research travel insurance companies on your own to make sure it suits your needs and coverage requirements. If you need travel insurance for an upcoming trip, check out Travelex and Travel Guard:

Let Me Upgrade You

I have noticed that my travel clients are ready to splurge on their next vacation. After waiting so long to travel, they desire an amazing and unforgettable experience. So here are some small and affordable upgrades to consider that can improve your all-around vacation experience.

Transportation: Instead of a shared airport transfer, you could upgrade to a private transfer. A driver would greet you, take you and your luggage to a sedan or SUV, and take you straight to your resort/hotel—no stops in between and no sharing of space with other travelers.

Excursions: Consider venturing off the resort. You can have an unforgettable excursion arranged as part of your trip. Your bucket list items are not out of reach. Zip-lining, culinary tours, white water rafting, ATV ride, local tours, snorkeling, scuba diving, etc., are all within reach.

Hotel Room: Consider upgrading and opting for a room with a view. We suggest rooms with a stunning view of the ocean. Imagine waking up every morning of your vacation and looking directly at the water, or even better, ordering room service and having breakfast on your balcony that faces the ocean.

Hire A Travel Advisor:  Take the worry and stress out of planning your next vacation. A Travel Advisor can do all your vacation research, planning, and booking for you. You deserve personalized service and getting all your travel needs met. Schedule a complimentary call today!

It’s true; upgrades will cost you more money. However, upgrades will also increase the quality of the memories of your trip. So, start planning your trip as early as possible. Planning early will ensure that you have the time to pay for some of the upgrades mentioned here. And, of course, if we arrange your vacation, you can start with a small deposit and pay for your trip over time.

2. We Save You Time & Money:

It is often a misconception that you will pay more for your trip if you work with a Travel Advisor. We have relationships and access to countless travel companies, additional perks, deals, and amenities. We do our best to stay within your budget and offer a payment plan if available. If you find the exact vacation a Travel Advisor designed for you for a lower price, we can very often Price Match to get you the best deal. Some Travel Advisors do charge a reasonable professional fee or retainer for their services. In return we provide you peace of mind, so you can enjoy your vacation without having to sweat the details. We will also explain cancellation policies to you before booking a trip. If you must cancel your trip, we will fight hard to get your money back and/or future travel credits when possible. No need to spend hours on hold; we will do it for you.

3. We Keep You Informed:

We are still in a pandemic. Travel Advisors must remain up to date on the latest changes and requirements. We can help you understand and navigate the current travel requirements as well. For example, we will keep you informed about a country’s entry and exit requirements, recommend testing locations near you and in the destination, let you know what documentation needs to be completed in order to travel, and provide you with the necessary information needed before you go on vacation.

4. We Got You Covered:

Travel insurance is not required to travel but is highly recommended. Travel Advisors can secure a travel insurance quote to protect your travel investment. In these times putting out a few hundred dollars for travel insurance is better than losing out on thousands of dollars if you must cancel your vacation. We can assist when emergencies arise while you are on vacation and assist with filing an insurance claim when you return. Most travel insurance companies also offer 24/7 emergency assistance, concierge services, medical coverage, and more.

5. We Have Your Back:

Travel is different now. Travel Advisors must go a step further to see what amenities are currently available at resorts and hotels. We check to see what is currently open in the destination including restaurants, excursions, activities, nightlife, etc. You know that part about being there for you during your trip, we will check in with you and do what we can to get you home safely.

As you can see from the list above Travel Advisors are a vital source to use if you decide to travel during this time. And do not forget about our personal travel experiences, travel education, expertise, and the love for travel that makes us the ideal person to plan your next vacation.
