CUSTOM TRAVEL PLANNING
Do you want to take a family vacation, but can't find the time to plan it?
Dreaming about your first solo trip, but you have no idea where to start the research?
Are you taking your first trip abroad and struggling with how to plan for it?
When you think about taking a vacation, do you stress about the logistics?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you need a Custom Travel Planner. This is where I come in.
What is a Custom Travel Planner?
A Custom Travel Planner is someone who makes it their mission to tackle all the messy research and planning so that you can have the vacation of a lifetime. I won’t just plan any run of the mill vacation, I work with you to determine your interests and travel style, then I plan a travel itinerary tailored to you and all of your desires. I take the time to learn about you and learn about everything you want to get out of your vacation. This is what I keep front of mind when I am putting together your travel itinerary. No two vacations are ever the same, because no two people are ever the same.
Custom Travel Planning vs Travel Agency
There are many similarities between a Custom Travel Planner and a Travel Agent but what makes me stand apart is this: I save you countless hours by handling all the research, doing all the planning, and formulating your detailed itinerary. Don’t forget that this includes finding you the best deals so that you can save a little cash! As a custom vacation planner though, I don’t make the bookings for you. I give you all the direct links you will need and will guide you to what needs to be booked. You simply click and make the booking yourself.
Why you want me to do your planning...
Countless hours in planning and research time saved, so you can spend your time daydreaming about your vacation
Spending hours sifting through websites, blog posts, “Top 5” articles, and generic itineraries
Your entire personalized itinerary will be at your fingertips so you have easy access to your travel plans
Using up valuable time on your vacation trying to figure out what to do next, where to eat, how to get from point A to point B
You get an entire vacation that is planned and customized to your interests and destinations you want to visit
Paying for a group tour that will inevitably take you to some places that you are not interested in seeing
A vacation centered around places you want to see, accommodations suited to you, restaurants you would want to eat at
A travel agent might only recommend activities and accommodations based on where they make a commission
Get advice on important information and things you should know about your destination(s)
Guessing or forgetting to research things you should know before travelling to your destination
You will have an organized itinerary completed by someone who builds them daily
A disorganized itinerary that might create more confusion than assistance
Heads up on when certain activities/sights are not available
Saving an activity for a certain day only to find out that it is closed and you have to miss out on seeing/doing it
Personalized tips from someone who is an experienced traveller and, as a bonus, may have been to the place you are travelling to
Taking a guess on what to expect from your destination and having it not live up to your expectations
