“We never would have been able to navigate the four Kingdoms…without your help” Susan K.
For some people, the thrill is in planning the details of their vacation. For others, a vacation means sitting back and letting an expert handle all those pesky details. However you like to vacation, we have a planning service for you!
Working with a Travel Professional
Many people have never worked with a Travel Professional before. They think that a travel professional is paid by the destination no matter if the client travels or not. This couldn’t be further from the truth. As travel professionals, we do get a small compensation for sending a client to a destination, Disney World for example. However, that compensation is ONLY paid after the client travels. It does not compensate the travel professional for all the time and expert knowledge that goes into planning a fantastic vacation. As you can see from our planning fees below, there is a lot of benefit and knowledge that comes from working with a travel professional. We are more than just booking agents. You can “book” a trip on Expedia yourself. If you want expert knowledge and a partner to help you create an amazing vacation then, paying a travel professional for their talent is well worth the expense.
Initial Consultation and Quote
There is never any charge for the initial quote and phone consultation. Discussion during this call includes:
- Getting to know each other to find out if we are a good fit to work together
- Determining where and when you’d like to travel
- What experiences you’d like to have
- Who will be traveling, including ages of the children and any special needs
- Your budgeting desires
We will prepare an initial quote based on the first consultation. Once you have decided to book with Born for Travel, the next step is to choose the level of service you would like from us.
