There’s never been a better time to hand over the reins and let a professional plan and perfect your vacation. As much as you like to plan your trips, there’s a new level of stress these days, and vacations are meant to be anything but stressful. Not to mention that when planning a trip for the whole family, questions and confusion can pile up. But if you’re still not convinced of the need to hire a travel consultant, listen to the professionals themselves…

Why is now a good time to hire a travel consultant?

Covid certainly has complicated travel requirements. Rely on a trusted travel advisor who will give you the advice you need to make sure everything goes smoothly and stress-free! New customers arrive every day. People have understood the value that travel counselors bring to the travel planning process. Build a relationship with your personal travel consultant now, as they will be getting busier and busier!

Amid the ongoing global pandemic, and as we move forward, barriers to travel are increasing, and most would-be travelers are understandably worried. A good travel consultant can simplify the process, ease the apprehension, plan the best possible experience, and maintain reservations from initial booking to return home. Before you go on a trip, it’s more important than ever to be confident in the style of travel, the destination and the overall experience, while getting value for money. In the post-COVID world, the only way to be sure to tick all the right boxes is to hire a professional, an expert, an advocate: your travel consultant.

Travel has changed so much in the last 18 months, whether it’s government restrictions in foreign countries and in our own country, the use of masks, quarantine insurance, or airline cancellation and rebooking policies. Travel advisors know about these things, and you can’t afford not to book through an advisor!

Family trips are fun, but they can be stressful.  Our insider knowledge of which properties offer the best value for your family is invaluable!

What destinations do you currently recommend for families?

I ALWAYS recommend Costa Rica for families – great hotels, friendly people and fun activities for all ages. No museum is necessary, and it’s very different from the classic “beach vacation”.

If the kids are young, I recommend a Caribbean cruise! Kids love the safety they feel aboard a cruise ship, the freedom they have and of course all the activities and other kids on board! Our clients’ favorite family destination is the Riviera Maya. All-inclusive resorts for families do a wonderful job of combining the right mix of activities, beach time, and food to keep everyone happy.

By taking children to see the world, discover other cultures and marvel, we enrich their lives for decades to come. One of our favorite suggestions for multi-generational families is an Alaskan cruise. If you’re looking for a more laid-back escape from the wintry weather, there are family-friendly all-inclusive resorts near Tulum in Riviera Maya. Tauck Bridges offers fantastic escorted travel opportunities in the contiguous United States, with local experts and easy access to remote locations that are a little closer to home (with tours designed specifically for families). One of the best experiences to share with the family is a Galapagos expedition with Lindblad Expeditions, in partnership with National Geographic.
