A Cruise Planners travel advisor can help you plan your vacation to make it as enjoyable, stress-free and cost-effective as possible. They have access to a variety of resources, such as low-cost flight options, group rates, amenities, insider tips, advice and unique experiences that you won't find anywhere else. They can also help you to find the perfect destination for you, based on your interests, budget and timeframe. So why spend hours doing the research and planning when an advisor can do all the work for you?
Here are some tips to help you plan your special vacation or getaway on your own or by working with a travel advisor:
- Make a list of all the places you’d like to visit and activities you’d like to do. This will help you narrow down your options and get a better idea of what kind of vacation you’re looking for. When working with a travel advisor, having an idea of warm vs cold climate will help them narrow down choices for you.
- Once you have a better idea of what you’d like to do, make a budget. Vacations are an investment of your time and money, so it’s important to figure out how much you’re willing to spend. Using a professional travel advisor can also help you protect this investment, much like financial advisors do, because they will present you with fabulous options, at a great price and with value in mind as many vacations come with extra perks and amenities that you may not receive if you aren’t working with a travel advisor.
- Next, start researching your ultimate vacation and all the things you’d want to experience. Look up flights, hotels, restaurants, and attractions to get an idea of what’s available. Don’t forget to check out travel deals and discounts to help you save money. Travel Advisors have access to put a complete packaged vacation together for you that already includes a pre or post hotel stay, a cruise or land getaway, excursions, activities, transfers and more.
- Finally, book your vacation! Once you’ve found the perfect destination, it’s time to pull the trigger and get it booked. Working with a Cruise Planners travel advisor will take care of all of the steps from start to finish. Find a Cruise Planners advisor in your local area who will help you find the best deals and amenities.
