In a modern world ruled by the internet, booking travel is easier than ever. You can rent a car, book a room, and make flight arrangements with a few keystrokes. This process can sometimes be quick and easy, but what it lacks is depth and imagination. Also, surfing through the cacophony of travel sites can actually take more time and create undue stress. On average, it takes at least 10 to 20 hours to plan a trip, even more when it’s an unfamiliar destination. And who wants to be stressed out when all you really want is a break from the daily grind? Here are five reasons why it’s time to put your independence aside and hire an experienced luxury travel consultant.
A travel consultant can save you time. Their knowledge and experience take the guesswork out of travel arrangements. You won’t need to spend time reading reviews and checking ratings. From finding the best hotels to the inside scoop on restaurants and transportation, hiring a travel consultant can keep you from falling into an overwhelming well of information.
Hiring a travel consultant can reduce stress. A vacation is supposed to be a fun and relaxing experience. A professional travel consultant has the experience to think of the details you might not think about when you plan your own vacation. They are plugged into people and places and know what travel pitfalls await and how to avoid them. A good travel consultant will remove the stress associated with trying to plan the perfect vacation, so you can relax and enjoy making memories with the most meaningful people in your life. Working with a travel consultant gives you peace of mind. Your travel consultant will take care of you before, during, and after your trip—so you can relax, enjoy wonderful moments, and create beautiful lifelong memories.
A travel consultant will make reliable recommendations. Travel consultants love to travel—it’s what drove them to their calling. A knowledgeable consultant will make personalized recommendations based on details you have shared with them about your preferences. They can suggest appropriate destinations and activities that suit your travel preferences, your comfort levels, and your sense of adventure. At Stonebridge Travel Consulting, we build professional and personal relationships with the best of the best in the industry. As a luxury travel expert, Camille Porta of Stonebridge can leverage these relationships to provide a high-touch, high-level travel experience. Unlike online booking sites, Camille’s years of experience and personal and professional relationships with highly vetted top destination partners allow her to provide exclusive access to unique and bespoke experiences, special amenities, and VIP upgrades that you simply can’t get on your own.
You’ll have the benefit of their first-hand knowledge. Travel consultants have often been to the places they recommend to their clients. They can vouch for the tours they arrange and the amenities that are available there, because they’ve been there and experienced these places and activities themselves.
Travel consultants can keep you focused on the big picture. It’s easy to get lost in the amount of travel options out there. A travel consultant will help you stay focused on why you want to travel in the first place, and design a trip full of moments that will matter the most to you personally, so you can create memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
