Select your destination, and we'll pair you with an InteleTravel Advisor based on your travel needs.

Using a travel advisor can go a long way toward adding value to your vacation and helping you save time and money along every part of your journey.

The cost of using a travel advisor typically varies according to the services they provide. Some may charge an hourly rate, flat fee, or percentage of your trip’s total cost, while others receive commissions from suppliers and won’t charge for their services at all.

No matter what type of trip you’re looking to take, every type of traveler can benefit from utilizing an advisor—from the budget conscious to those seeking the heights of luxury.

Travel Advisors Are More Important Than Ever

Depending on the trip you’re looking to take, planning it can be daunting—from negotiating the complex rules of various suppliers to keeping up to date with accurate information on destinations and offerings.

Advisors excel at conducting research, sorting through offers, and reading the fine print to help save you time, money, and stress. While you may be able to explore and book a trip online, no website will get to know you personally or remain dedicated to achieving your goals. Working with an advisor means having a real-life expert at your fingertips!

They are especially valuable when you run into unexpected situations while abroad. When the unforeseen happens such as lost luggage or missed connections, there’s no one better to have on your side—and with the many variables of a complex planning process, an advisor is truly a must.

Advisors Actually Save You Money

A travel advisor provides personalized service and invaluable advice—helping travelers make the most of their time and money. While some may charge a modest fee for their services, most won’t charge anything at all, and in fact, will end up saving you money in the long run.

They can reduce overall travel costs by leveraging their relationships with tour operators, hotels, airlines, and more to secure discounts and exclusive deals.

Advisors typically don’t charge a fee to their clients for planning standard vacations, but instead earn money from commissions* paid to them through supplier partners and vendors.

They also provide the convenience of serving as the single point of contact throughout your entire trip, which can save a great deal of time and reduce any associated stress.

Working with a travel advisor provides professional assistance in arranging your itinerary and booking your accommodations, behind-the-scenes help throughout every stage of your journey, and access to special discounts and promotions courtesy of their travel supplier partners.
