Whether a weekend getaway or an exotic vacation, traveling often involves navigating myriad critical factors—budgeting considerations, selecting the perfect destination, coordinating flights, securing accommodations, and crafting an itinerary that suits your preferences. While exciting, this can also be time consuming and financially draining.

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

The cost of using a travel advisor typically varies according to the services provided. Some may charge an hourly rate, flat fee, or percentage of your trip’s total cost, while others – such as InteleTravel advisors – 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 craving the heights of luxury.

Travel 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, end up saving you money in the long run.

They 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 their clients fees 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 saves a great deal of time and reduces 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.

They Go Above & Beyond to Enhance Your Trip 

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.

Travel advisors excel at crafting tailored itineraries, ensuring that every aspect of your journey aligns seamlessly with your preferences. Their expertise extends to finding the best accommodations, where they leverage in-depth knowledge to recommend and book stays that cater to your desired level of luxury, boutique charm, or budget-friendly options. 

Beyond planning, these professionals offer continuous support, from pre-trip preparations to on-the-road assistance—ensuring a seamless and stress-free experience. In the face of unexpected challenges such as lost luggage or missed connections, travel advisors act as your dedicated advocates, swiftly handling issues behind the scenes to keep your journey on track. 

Their wealth of experience and industry knowledge provides valuable insight into the local nuances of your destination, with recommendations about hidden gems, must-try cuisines, and unique activities. They streamline communication, saving you time and reducing the stress associated with coordinating various aspects of your travel. 

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!
