In a fast-paced world where we all value time off, spending quality time away is one of the most important things to get right.
If you value your time, especially your travel time, then booking holidays or special trips with a Personal Travel Consultant might be worth considering.
Here are just 13 reasons to get you started...
1 - Saving you time and stress
Looking at pictures in brochures, magazines, and on social media is fun, but planning a trip can involve time and often hard work. Especially if it’s a multi-generational trip, a group booking, an unusual destination, or a special occasion like a wedding.
Spending time researching, shopping around might not always be the best use of your time. A personal travel consultant can do all that for you. Coupled with industry knowledge, connections, and travel experience a travel consultant will save you stress and time, not only in the planning of the trip but across the whole booking experience.
2 - Every booking helps to protect and restore our planet, so you can feel even better about going on holiday…
Travel in the knowledge that your contribution is helping to protect and restore ecosystems, with environmental projects in the UK and overseas.

3 - They’ll help spread the cost of your holiday
Whether it’s a dream honeymoon, last-minute break or family getaway, paying for a high-value holiday can sometimes be daunting. But when booking with a personal travel consultant, you’ll get access to a hassle-free option.
Once you’ve got your heart set on a holiday or trip of a lifetime, a direct debit scheme will take care of the rest: being able to spread the cost of a trip in low monthly instalments can make all the difference.
There will be an amount agreed to go out on the same date each month, which means you don’t need to worry about missed payments and can look forward to your holiday instead.
Bonus reason: Instead of a remaining balance 14-16 weeks before your holiday, the final payment isn’t due until 6 weeks before you travel when you pay via direct debit.
4 - They’ll have your back if you need an advocate
Whether it is a natural disaster, bad luck or just bad weather, not every single holiday booking goes to plan, no matter how amazing a travel consultant is.
Whether there are problems getting you out there or getting you back home safe, having a personal travel consultant to help steer around the things we cannot control is proving more valuable than ever before. Having someone at the end of the phone is something customers often say is so important to them.
5 - The world is ever-changing and sometimes turbulent
Has a Caribbean destination recovered from a hurricane? Is it safe to travel to the Middle East? Where can you travel post-COVID-19? A great travel consultant has inside knowledge and is up-to-date with the latest news, natural disasters, and hot topics.
Often before the news is shared online, the travel industry including tour operators and travel consultants are one step ahead. Without the need to search online, having a personal travel consultant means having someone to turn to, someone who has already thought of the next step before you have to think of it yourself.
6 - Like any professional, they know holidays best
A personal travel consultant will give you the inside track to get the most out of your holiday, to make it as memorable as possible. Like any professional, they know their sector best. If you had a broken tap you’d call a plumber to fix it. It’s no different in the world of holidays.
A Not Just Travel consultant has trained to become a certified travel professional to be able to provide a great service. Again like most industries out there, the world of travel is an ever-moving target, it never sits still. The options available, the destinations for certain types of travel, the go-to hotels never stay the same for long. They will know it all.
