or a ‘Personal Travel Consultant’ as we prefer to be called!
With the rise of online booking, travel comparison websites, and new ways to find deals, there are more ways to plan and book your next holiday than ever before. But why would you want to?
Putting your dream holiday together is a lot of hard work. Booking it at the right price can be even harder. And if you turn to a tour operator for help, you’re putting all your eggs in one basket and limiting your options to ready-made trips.
Even with all the travel planning possibilities of 2017, people are still turning to personal travel consultants. Here’s why.
- Be sure you’re protected
- The widest choice of holidays
- Access to exclusive offers and prices
- Personal service from your Personal Travel Consultant
- Specialist travel expertise – without being tied to brands
- Save time on planning
- Unique trips with the right upgrades and extras
- Your on-demand problem solver
- Trust Us
- Long-term partners for travel
Lets look at our top 10 reasons to book with a travel agent (or travel consultant) in a little more detail:
1. Be sure you’re protected
Surely the most compelling reason to use a Personal Travel Consultant is the fact that with Not Just Travel you can be sure you are fully protected. With ABTA membership and an ATOL licence, should anything happen to the supplier of your holiday, we’ll step in to make sure you find a solution for you.
2. The widest choice of holidays
Everyone’s idea of a perfect holiday is different. There’s just no such thing as one-size-fits-all. With a travel agent, you’ll get a huge choice of holidays tailored to you – at Not Just Travel, we have 12 million options at any one time, from 450 different suppliers.
3. Access to exclusive offers and prices
Even the best online offers and last-minute discounts can’t match the spending power of an established personal travel consultant. At Not Just Travel, we have 350 travel consultants booking holidays daily, we’re also one of the UK’s fastest growing independent travel agents, therefore we have massive buying power that we use every single day to help you get the right holiday at the right price.
4. Personal service from your Personal Travel Consultant
When you use a travel agent, you don’t get a faceless company trying to sell you its holidays – you get a one-on-one advisor to help you plan and book your break. It’s like having a personal shopper for your holiday who starts by getting to know your needs, then creates the holiday to match. At Not Just Travel we pride ourselves on never having 9-5 hours or long call queues. Your Personal Travel Consultant is on hand with ideas at any time of day and they’re on call whenever you have a problem.
5. Specialist travel expertise – without being tied to brands
While tour operators bring expertise in the countries and locations they offer holidays in, the right travel consultant brings much more diverse knowledge of travel. It’s a complete and comprehensive view that helps you explore all your options and get essential information on things like visas and currencies.
6. Save time on planning
Planning your own holiday is possible – but doesn’t it sound more fun to let someone else do all the hard work while you focus on getting excited and picking the right clothes to take? It takes an average of 30 hours to plan a holiday. That’s time a travel agent can save you.
7. Unique trips with the right upgrades and extras
Travel Consultants love travel. So beyond the practicalities of planning, they bring the creativity and connections it takes to make a holiday even more spectacular, from recommending and arranging local excursions to getting you special upgrades.
8. Your on-demand problem solver
If something goes wrong with your holiday, a travel agent is your go-to source of help, advice and practical assistance. From cancelled flights to lost luggage, there’s little more comforting than knowing a travel expert is just on the other end of the phone whenever you need them.
9. Trust Us
