Why book with me vs. booking online?

Jodie Love on 22 October 2020
The most common question a travel agent will ever be asked is 'why should I book with you rather than online?'. In the days of Covid19 it's more important than ever to be informed when it comes to who to trust with your hard earned money. Here are my most frequently asked questions as a Travel Counsellor to give you more of an insight into what I do and how I can help you with your future holiday plans.

Why should I book with you rather than through a website? I am the owner of my own travel business so there's nothing I care more about than you and your holiday. You will only ever deal with me and I am at your disposal from the moment you get in touch to enquire until the moment you walk through your front door on return from your holiday. I am passionate about travel and have travelled a lot myself so not only can I put together an incredible bespoke itinerary for you but I can also include personal recommendations based on my own travel experiences which I know you will love. I am available on the phone, in person, via email and on various social media channels so there's lots of different ways you can get in touch with me depending on your preferences. I always a im to be available for you no matter what the time of day but should this not be possible there is a 24 hour support service you can contact. All holidays booked through me have 100% financial protection through Travel Counsellors unique trust scheme.

What type of holidays can I book through you? In a nutshell, anything! I can help you arrange everything from a UK staycation to a once in a lifetime round the world adventure spanning every continent, and anything that falls in-between. I offer flights, hotels, cruises, package holidays, group tours, tailor made independent tours, sailing trips, car hire, campervan hire, villas, cottages, day trips, insurance, and much more. All the holidays I arrange are completely bespoke to you so you can be assured that all of your needs will be met and you're going to have an amazing time. I can also book the likes of Jet2 Holidays, Easyjet Holidays and many more - the bonus being you'll only ever deal with me rather than someone from a call centre so should something go wrong I will be the one to sort it out for you.

Will it be more expensive to book through you? As a regular traveller myself I know how important it is to ensure you always get the best deal. I will always try my absolute best to ensure everything I offer to you is competitively priced. I can't always guarantee I will be the cheapest but I can guarantee that I will take all of the hassle out of your booking and I will always put you and your holiday first. So whilst you may find a slightly cheaper deal online, you won't find better value for money than the service I can offer you.

If I book with you will I be financially protected? As a Travel Counsellor any booking you make with me has 100% financial protection which means should anything happen to any of the companies which operate your trip, you won't lose out. The financial protection we offer is completely unique and independent meaning whatever happens your money is safe with us. Our scheme financially protects every aspect of your trip whether you've booked your whole holiday with me or just your airport parking. For extra peace of mind I am proud to say Travel Counsellors were also voted no.1 on a survey completed by Money Saving Expert based on travel refunds given during the pandemic.
