I couldn’t tell you how often I have heard someone say it isn’t worth paying a professional to book a vacation. After all, it is supposedly an effortless process, thanks to the internet! However, do you know how long it took you to book your last vacation?

Did your vacation turn out the way you wanted it to?

Did you have the accommodations of your dreams? See attractions you loved?

How many things went wrong on your last vacation? Would things have gone better if you had someone to help you out?

I am sure your answers are the same as those of many other people. It probably took you a lot longer to plan your vacation than you wanted it to take. You most likely had a room that didn’t have an ocean view, despite thinking that’s what you booked. And those attractions you saw… Maybe half of them were duds. Here is Why You Should Consider Paying a Professional to Book Your Travel!

Avoiding all those issues can be as simple as paying a professional to book travel. Most people don’t understand why I charge a fee for my services. Today, I will share exactly why I charge a fee and how that fee truly benefits you.

As a travel advisor, I have numerous contacts around the world. I use these contacts to customize a perfect vacation for your needs. My goal is for you to have the best vacation possible, and that means you should not stay in a hotel that hasn’t been updated since the 1950s. It also means finding attractions and activities your entire family will love.

Of course, I use my extensive training to search for hotels that meet your needs and the needs of your autistic child. I don’t rely on websites for this information either. I prefer to pick up the phone and talk to hotel people to ensure your needs are met.

As I plan your vacation, I will always listen to your wants and needs. If you aren’t sure what those are, I will help you discover them. This is also when I will make a few recommendations to ensure your vacation will be as amazing as you want it to be.

While I am a travel advisor, I am also a mom to an autistic child. So, I GET IT! I understand why those door alarms and quiet spaces are super important! Yes, autistic children are all different, but I know what you tell me you need is necessary for YOUR child.

I never want anyone to feel alone when booking their vacations or even when they are on vacation. I will take care of all the planning and booking for you so you can spend your free time preparing your child with social stories and anything else they need to have fun while you are away from home.

As you can see, my fee allows you to benefit from your vacations in so many ways. Especially when you are away from home and panic when a tour is canceled, or an attraction is shut down at the last minute. Thankfully, a quick phone call to me will get you back on track with plans for the day without any stress.

So, change how you think about booking vacations, and let me do the heavy lifting for you. I guarantee you will love all the extra time you have to get ready for this time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
