Eight Reasons to Use a Personal Travel Consultant

If you are looking to book a long-overdue, stress-free holiday, your Genistar representative can put you in touch with a personal travel consultant with our partners at Not Just Travel.

When you go on holiday, you want to leave your worries behind. Having a personal travel consultant manage your holiday could add to your comfort and peace of mind. Take a look at these eight reasons to not go it alone.

1. Save Time and Reduce Stress

Looking at pictures of holiday destinations and dreaming of fun in the sun can be great, but planning a successful trip can involve a lot of time and hard work. Luckily, a personal travel consultant can do all that for you. They can save you time and reduce your stress level – not only in planning the trip but across the entire booking experience.  

A personal travel consultant will handle every aspect of your holidays or trips: Flights, hotel bookings, private transfers, activities, guided tours, airport parking, travel insurance, and the list goes on…

2. Someone is There if You Need Them  

Whether it’s a virus outbreak, natural disaster, bad luck, or just bad weather, not every holiday booking goes to plan – no matter how amazing your travel consultant may be.

If you find yourself in an emergency situation, having a personal travel consultant can prove to be invaluable. Having someone at the end of the phone who can help can give you peace of mind.

3. Special Bookings and Requirements

Organising group trips can be a logistical nightmare. Coordinating multiple arrival and departure times and organising transfers for everyone is something a personal travel consultant can take off your hands.

They will become the one point of contact for the group, whether it’s a big family holiday, a wedding party, a group of friends, or a business meeting. A travel consultant can tie up all the loose ends, connect the dots, and make sure everyone has a great time. 

4. Up-to-Date Information

Has a Caribbean destination recovered from a hurricane? Is it safe to travel to the Middle East? Where can you travel post-COVID-19? A great travel consultant has inside knowledge and is up to date with the latest news, natural disasters, and hot topics. 

Often before the news is shared online, the travel industry gets a heads-up. Having a personal travel consultant means having someone who is in the know and already thinking of the next step.

5. Better Access  

Did you know that a personal travel consultant can book your holidays and get offers that you won’t find online? Whether you’re looking for a ticket to a sold-out show in New York, a private boat tour for an anniversary, or you just need help with making the hotel room extra special for your honeymoon, they can make it happen. 

There are perks from working in the trade, and a personal travel consultant will always try to get airport lounge tickets and/or any VIP connections or upgrades available added to your booking. They will always be on the lookout for that little extra, as they know it can go a long way to making a trip special. 

6. Saved Preferences

Once a personal travel consultant has learnt what type of holidays you like or dislike, such as whether you prefer sitting in the aisle or window seat, you won’t need to tell them again. It’s their job to make sure all your trips are tailor-made to you. This saves you time, as you won’t have to repeat yourself, and it means they can always marry their knowledge of travel with your specific preferences and needs. 

7. Recommendations and Inspiration

Personal travel consultants are in the business of travel for a reason: They love to plan holidays and trips. Whether it’s an authentic seafront restaurant or that fantastic city tour, they are there to make recommendations, so you don’t miss a thing. 

Even if they haven’t been to the destination themselves, they will know someone who has, or will be able to get inside knowledge from their connections and destination specialists. 

8. Always in the Know 

The world of travel never sits still for very long, and it’s a travel consultant’s job to always be in the know. They keep up with recent trends, and they’ll know if there’s an exciting new hotel in the Maldives or a refurbished dog-friendly spa in Cornwall which everyone is raving about. They’ll be able to share their inside knowledge with you to help you make the best decision on where to spend your time away.

If you are thinking about planning a holiday for some long-awaited time away and don’t want to do it on your own, contact your Genistar representative. They will be able to refer you to our travel consultant partners at Not Just Travel.
