by Christina Vieira | Lifestyle, Travel

Are you dreaming of a stress-free and unforgettable family vacation?

 Look no further than a travel advisor who can turn your travel dreams into reality. Showcase the World Travel, a modern travel agency, is dedicated to helping families take a break from the busy and create cherished memories together. With five years of experience in personalized vacation planning, we’ve assisted hundreds of families with tailored recommendations, money-saving tips, and time-saving tricks. 

There are often requests for Travel Advisors in the Boston Business Women group, but there is not often a lot of information about the type of trip the poster is looking to plan. 

The value of a travel advisor is in their expertise. 

No travel agent can be an expert in the whole world. A great advisor will  specialize in a destination, type of travel (romance, culinary, adventure) or a type of traveler. 

In our case, we specialize in families and spend time learning about the best destinations, experiences and resorts when traveling with your kids. While we could book other travel, we want you to have the best possible experience and will refer to colleagues in the industry if we do not believe we have the expertise or connections for your trip. 

Here are some easy steps to find the perfect travel advisor for YOUR particular needs: 

1. Start with Discovery Calls:

Finding the right travel advisor is all about finding the perfect fit. Begin by scheduling discovery calls with a few potential advisors. These calls provide an opportunity to gauge their communication style, ensuring it aligns with your preferences. Remember, the travel advisor will be your partner in creating the ideal vacation, so finding someone with whom you have a good rapport is essential. Travel Advisors do not get paid until you take the trip, so make sure they know you are interviewing other agents and please be respectful of their time. 

2. Seek Expertise and Compatibility:

During the discovery calls, inquire about their planning process and how they determine recommendations. If they can not quickly list off the steps you will go through, they likely do not have a consistent process and you may want to move on. A knowledgeable advisor will go beyond details of your exact trip and ask you questions about your family’s interests and needs, striving to understand what is important to you. Additionally, consider the advisor’s working hours to ensure they are convenient for your schedule. A harmonious partnership with your travel advisor will make the planning process a breeze.

3. Don’t Rush to Pricing:

While it’s natural to be curious about pricing, hold off on asking for detailed quotes until you have chosen your travel advisor. Remember, the focus during the initial stages is to find the best match for your family. Once you’ve established a strong connection, you can confidently move forward and discuss pricing and itineraries.

4. Personalized Recommendations:

A travel advisor’s expertise lies in their ability to create personalized recommendations tailored to your family’s preferences. Look for an advisor who takes the time to get to know your interests, whether it’s adventure-filled activities, cultural experiences, or relaxing getaways. A well-crafted itinerary will make your vacation truly special and unforgettable.
