Top 3 Reasons to Use a Travel Agent

In recognition of U.S Travel Agent Awareness Day, Zoëtry Loves our Agents

We get it, the Internet has changed the way we do things. Travelers today have access to all sorts of tools to research and review before choosing a brand or product. However, more information can sometimes mean more problems. Searching for travel options from flights to hotels can not only be time consuming but overwhelming. Have no fear, the travel agent is here to save the day! In recognition of U.S Travel Agent Awareness Day, Zoëtry Wellness & Spas has listed our top three reasons why you should use a travel agent to book your next Endless Privileges® getaways.

  1. They’re the experts!

No matter how much research is done, it is hard to truly become an expert on your vacation needs. This is where travel agents come in! Agents typically specialize in a few destinations or markets (family friendly, outdoor, business or leisure travel, weddings and honeymoons, cultural) and remain up-to-date on the latest travel trends, new resorts, up and coming destinations, etc. to recommend the ideal place to book your next trip.

  1. Practice makes perfect!

Unfortunately, Mother Nature has never considered our travel plans when she decides to strike.  When winter storms strike during a time of the year when many people are trying to escape the cold, having an experienced travel agent to handle the aftermath is priceless. Travel agents step in to handle all sorts of unexpected situations and know how to best approach airlines and hotel policies to reschedule your entire travel itinerary.

  1. It’s a win-win relationship!

As most relations in life, loyalty has its rewards. Travel agents are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that their (loyal) clients’ vacation will exceed their expectations. As professionals in the tourism industry, they have access to perks and resources that allow them to enhance your stay as a way to say “thank you for your business”.

What Makes Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Jet-List Worthy?

While there are many things that make Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Jet-List worthy, Carole Murphy, travel agent and blogger for Dear Sky Steward, names just one of them in her recent blog “Navigating the Cancun International Airport”.

The article provides some helpful tips on how to navigate the airport and arrive at your resort much easier and a lot less stressful. Among the tips she provides, Carole’s #3 tip is to secure resort transportation before you leave home. She also recommends considering a Jet-List worthy resort like Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita which provides private transportation. Take a look at what she had to say.

3.  Secure resort transportation BEFORE you leave home.
I cannot stress this enough. There are several transportation companies that you can book through. I use Best Day. Once you exit the airport, you’ll find the transportation area full of reps holding signs. Find your rep (the sign will either say your last name or ‘Best Day’) & you’re all set.

Besides not having to worry about transportation, you’ll also benefit by not having to talk to those pesky time-share sellers as you exit the airport (as mentioned in #2 above).

Don’t wanna worry about making transportation reservations? Jet-List-worthy Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita resort in Riviera Maya uses private transportation. You’ll be picked up at the airport in one of their pearl-colored Lincoln Navigators, complete with a glass of champagne. What’s not to like about that?!?
