Why use a travel agent?

Today we are going to go back to the basics, and once again take a Look at some reasons why you should use a travel agent. And please, let me know of any questions you might have. I would love to answer them. Now on to our topic.

  • Travel is our business. This is what we are looking at day and day and week after week. If you are looking for a specific thing, we know where to find it or who to ask. We will be able to help you to figure out your trip while you take care of everything else in your life. We can do the research and help you figure out all you want to do.

The questions will be personal, but that is only because we want to get to know the things that are important to you and your family. Often you may not know all the things to ask. We will be guiding each step of the way.
  • I know I’ve written about this several times before, but we travel agents make money when we book hotels, car rentals, cruises, theme parks and things like that. And I have personally decided not to charge anything over and above that.
  • I know that a lot of travel agents like to work certain hotels and cruiselines, etc. And especially when a travel agent does that, they can work with their vendors to give their guests the best possible experience.

Things to do in Orlando

Everyone knows that Disney World, and a lot of other theme parks, are in Orlando, Florida. But what do you do if you grow tired of amusement park fun? That is what we are going to look at today.

  • To start with, when was the last time you went shopping just because you wanted to get out and enjoy some retail therapy? A lot of people like to shop when they are on vacation. Many find it relaxing. And while you are on vacation, you’ll feel freer to take your time and enjoy the experience.
  • Or when was the last time you sat in a nice restaurant to enjoy a dinner with family or friends, and didn’t care how long it took? You were there primarily to enjoy time with one another. Spend the evening trying new food and catching up.
  • Orlando has a great downtown. You will find some beautiful lakes to walk around.
  • I know they have Sea World, but they also have a nice aquarium you can visit if you are looking for something >something slower pace. Here you will find lots of stingraysys, sharks, and of course lots of fish.

Did you know?

As a society, Americans are extremely busy. Most of us adults are working in some capacity. And then many also have hobbies we like keeping up with. There are also things to do to maintain a house, car and all the stuff we feel we have to have. And then there is marriage and all our other family commitments. Kids are just as busy with school, sports and everything else they do. Vacations are one time families get away from their full lives and take time to be together and make memories. That is the big reason that I’m in this business..

But did you know that traveling is also great for a child’s education? Children who travel seem to be more respectful and tolerant. They are also more willing to try new things..

Hawaii #2

I’m trying out some new things in I’m business. I’ve just started today, so I’m not sure how anything is going to work. But I am feeling like I need to try some new things, and we’ll have to see what happens. But anyway, this blog is about travel, so let’s get back to discussing Hawaii.

What is the first city you think of when you think of when you think about Hawaii? Might it be honolulu? Located on the island of Oahu, this is the state’s capitol. And as such, it is the epicenter for the state’s political, economic and cultural life.

Life on these islands can be rather expensive, so taking a cruise is likely going to save you a pretty good bit of money. A cruise is also going to have everything planned out for you, saving you a lot of time and aggravation.

Okay, so what do you think of when you think of when you think of Hawaii? Are you thinking of swaying palm trees, grass skirts, and luaus? Hawaii is this and so much more. Some other reasons to go?
