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.
A resolution is a choice to start something new or do something different in the new year. I challenge you to choose at least one resolution that will make your travel life even better in 2022.
Learn a Skill Abroad
Learn something new while on your trip and immerse yourself in the culture. Learn the language or a new skill that the area is known for, like making pasta or pizza in Italy.
Relax at a Wellness Spa
On your next trip, visit a wellness spa and be pampered. Many resorts provide travelers with wellness services such as massages, facials, aqua-therapy, and more. There are also many wellness resorts to choose from, or even better, how about a wellness retreat?!
With most jobs being remote and countries allowing long-term visas, your dreams of living in a new country for a few months can come true. Living abroad is a great way to gain a fresh perspective and outlook on life.
Go on an adventure that’ll give you an adrenaline rush. Plan out a hike in Bali, go ski-diving in Dubai, or how about parasailing in Turks & Caicos.
Use That PTO
Time off is necessary for your mental health and productivity. Take a break abroad or get a luxurious hotel room downtown. Whatever you do, getaway and use those vacation days.
Gone are the days of waiting for your friends and family before you book your next trip. If there is someplace you want to go, GO! Don’t miss out on good sales and great experiences waiting on others. In 2022, go alone and love every minute!
Design a Dream Trip
Planning or anticipating your trip can improve your mood and give you something to look forward to. Tap into that pre-trip bliss by working with a Travel Advisor to create memories that will last a lifetime!
Time for a Digital Detox
Take a break from your computer, phone, iPad, TV, and our #1 guilty pleasure, social media. Instead, focus more on in-person social interactions and activities you enjoy. A digital detox will give you the space to focus your thoughts and reconnect.
Did Someone Say, Road Trip
While traveling the world by plane is ideal, it’s nothing like mapping out your adventure and hopping in a car to explore national landmarks and hidden treasures in your country. Plus, what’s better than blasting your music and singing loudly/off key to your favorite oldies.
Let Me Upgrade You
Just once in 2022, upgrade one portion of your next trip! Upgrade to first or business class. Get a private car to your resort. Book an oceanfront room, a swim-up suite, or butler service. It all sounds so lovely, and you deserve it.
Wanderlust is a strong desire to travel. If this describes you, wander, go someplace, any place. I’m here to help plan your next vacation whenever you’re ready: click here!
Travel Advisors provide professional expertise and offer a service and support that cannot be received when you book a trip online. We complete a consultation to better understand the vision you have for your vacation. We spend time planning, researching, and creating an itinerary that exceeds your expectations. We can book each component of your trip including your flights, accommodations, excursions, transfers, and dinner reservations, just to name a few. We provide excellent customer service support before, during, and after your trip. We also send out important trip documents via email or in the mail. Most importantly we answer the phone when you call and respond promptly to your texts and emails. If you need more convincing, click here to find out why booking with a Travel Advisor is better versus an online platform.
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.
