Why Use a Travel Advisor for Your Destination Wedding?
It’s a familiar story. A couple gets engaged and becomes really excited about a destination wedding until they start thinking about questions. Questions about location, flights, rooms, transfers. Planning a destination wedding by yourself can be formidable and the couple often becomes overwhelmed.
Does this sound like you? If so, the most important question you should be asking as a newly engaged couple is, “Should I hire a travel advisor to help me with this?” The answer is unequivocally yes!
How does a travel advisor help with destination wedding?
Travel advisors will help you determine the best resort for your wedding based on first-hand experience. They know which resorts offer perks and which ones have
the best prices. They often have exemplary relationships with wedding planners and staff so they can get information more quickly than you can on your own.
Best of all, they will handle all of the travel arrangements for you and your guests. Can you imagine trying to book Aunt Becky’s transfers and room at the same time you are sending out invitations and scheduling bridal fittings?
Once your party has arrived at the destination, your travel advisor will still be providing support. When cousin Eddy doesn’t like his room, he can call the travel advisor to have it all worked out instead of asking you to fix it. Having a travel advisor in your back pocket will give you an added layer of insulation between all the things that could go wrong with travel and the real reason why you are there – your wedding.
If you choose an international location, this may be the first time some of your guests have ever been out of the country. They are sure to have plenty of questions about passports, traveling during the time of Covid, and what happens if they need to cancel their trip. Instead of calling you to have their questions answered, your travel advisor will provide expert answers to ensure they are ready to travel. Your travel advisor will also be able to answer simpler questions about the dress code for the resort or if the menu has gluten-free options.
On occasion, your travel advisor may be able to provide on-site support. In this case, the travel advisor would travel with you and be available to assist the group for the entire time they are at the destination.
