Travel Planning Services FAQ
Are you a travel agent?
I am not a travel agent. The best description is that I am a travel consultant and advisor, offering multiple levels of travel planning assistance. Any option or service coordinated for will be the best fit for you. A variety of services are available to best suit your needs. Precisely because my clients come first, I don’t rely on commissions or kickbacks from vendors.
Do you use tour companies?
The only time a tour might be part of your trip, is for specific needs or interests. This could be a history walking tour, wine tour, or adventure tour. I do not use tour companies for an entire trip, since I specialize in independent travel.
Can’t I just use the internet?
The internet can be an amazing tool, but It’s a bit of a double edged sword. Sifting through the mountains of information can be time consuming or confusing. Does the person giving advice have the same travel style and preferences? Is the post (whether for a hotel, activity, location….) sponsored, and can you trust that hasn’t unduly influenced the writer? Are you getting complete and accurate information about a place?
If you have the time and patience, you can of course DIY your trip. My blog can be a great resource for all things travel planning, and you can always choose one of my more hands-off services.
Do you contract travel agencies or tour companies?
I provide all service options in-house. Carefully vetted local guides or specialty tours may be recommended or booked for you, but you will always know that they are independent contractors, not employees or paid partners. I do not apply up-charges to services they provide.
Which of your services is right for me?
If you still like doing most of the travel planning yourself or have started plotting your itinerary, hourly consulting is ideal for you. If you don’t have the time, desire, or experience to create your itinerary, my custom itinerary service is a perfect fit. Not quite sure which is the best fit? Just send a message he best option for your needs.
