What you should tell your Travel Agent

October 19, 2018

When booking a holiday, you want your expert travel consultant to tailor the itinerary to your needs and interests. Your holiday should be an amazing trip that will fill you with new experiences and memories. To help us create the perfect holiday, consider these important questions.

Where would you like to go?

Try to be more specific when you tell your Travel Agent where you want to travel – Latin America is a huge continent! If you are undecided, try asking for recommendations according to the time of the year and season.

What are your interests?

This is central to planning. What would you like to see or to do? Do you have a special interest that can make your trip even more memorable? Your Travel Expert will know where to go and what to do to enhance your trip. For example, if you want to do some wildlife spotting, the Pantanal might be the best choice. Photo buffs should check out our dedicated photography tour of Patagonia. Want to learn more about textiles of Mexico? We have the perfect tour for you!

When do you want to travel?

Some destinations are just not convenient at certain times of the year. Your travel agent should advise whether the rainy season will make your next trip a misery. Likewise, if you want to see whale sharks you will have to be sure when they will be in the right areas migrating so you can snorkel by their side. You wouldn’t be able to spend Easter in Antigua in September… get the gist?

What kind of accommodation are you looking for?

Would you like to stay in a beachfront room or would you prefer a quiet boutique hotel in the city? Do you fancy having meals and activities included or you rather explore around by yourself? There are different accommodations to suit every traveller and their needs. All to make you feel just at home! Ultimately, your accommodation options depend on two other important questions: what is your budget and who is coming with you?

What’s your budget?

Whether you are on a budget or looking to splurge, your travel agent will know exactly what kind of accommodation to offer you. Not only the best value, but also the best experience. After answering the previous questions, your travel agent already knows what kind of traveller you are. Thereafter, they might recommend you an all-inclusive hotel should you be interested in staying in the atmospheric Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. Perhaps they will encourage you to stay in a homestay in Cuba, so that you can have a real dip into the culture. Or possibly a boutique hotel in Yucatan instead of the resorts of Cancun, to be sure you are enjoying your trip.

Who else is coming?

If you are travelling solo or planning to join a small group tour; travelling on your honeymoon or taking the whole family on an adventure; your expert consultant will plan your itinerary with your travel companions in mind. Your Travel Agent will recommend the best accommodation and destination, so it suits all your family members. If you are travelling with kids, your travel agent will know what to recommend to keep them entertained while you relax and enjoy!

These are the basic questions your travel agent will ask you to make sure you will get the best out of your holiday. Make sure you tell them every detail, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your travels!
