Top 5 Questions to Ask Your Travel Advisor

by | February 8, 2022

What are the benefits of booking with you as opposed to booking a trip on my own?

Going on vacation is one of the best feelings in life, but it can be difficult to design that perfect getaway with everything that fits your needs. As luxury travel advisors we offer a variety of services to help you achieve your ideal travel dreams! We focus on providing our clients personalized service, which means saving time without hours spent online (information fatigue), as well as peace-of-mind knowing that our expertise is ensuring the trip is smooth from start-to-finish. We also have access to exclusive amenities, deals, experiences and packages only available through our relationships with our global network. Further, we are extremely selective with the destinations, accommodations, and tours that we curate for our clients, ensuring that the travel we provide is luxurious, safe and of course fun!

Do you have any insider tips for travelers to have a truly luxurious experience?

First and foremost, ask your advisor and you shall receive! Our extensive luxury travel network allows for our clients to dream up pretty much any experience and we can make it happen. To elevate your trip, book a room with a view, private pool, or a suite for added space and amenities. Splurge on Michelin starred restaurants and indulgent spa experiences for when you have downtime. We also also recommend getting to know the locals and getting off the beaten path to fully immerse yourself in the local culture. Hire private guides and drivers to help you explore and gain unique access. And don’t forget to leverage your butler or concierge for tips on where to eat, drink or insight on local events. Alternatively, instead of staying in a hotel, consider renting an apartment or villa for your stay. This will give you more space and privacy, as well as the opportunity to invite a local chef to cook for you and your guests.

What do you think is the key to creating a truly luxurious travel experience for your clients?

Luxury isn’t something you buy…it’s a way of traveling and experiencing the world. To provide the most value for our clients, we lean in on our four core principles. We prioritize the needs of our clients above all else and also focus on creating itineraries that are both bespoke and indulgent. We aim for immersive experiences that that allow you to unplug, relax and reconnect. Luxury is just one part of the experience: we go beyond to engage and inspire our clients through our local connections, attention to detail and a passion for connecting travelers with culture.

What destinations are you most passionate about and why?

We love destinations that offer leisure, adventure and a little off-the-beaten path vibes. We are thrilled on East and Southern Africa, where you can find both world-class safaris and incredible beaches for both relaxing and either scuba diving or kiteboarding for the thrill seekers. Zanzibar, Cape Town, Victoria Falls, Serengeti, and Masai Mara are among our favorite Africa destinations.

We also gush over exclusive island getaways, offering endless sunbathing, spa treatments, water sports helicopter rides and yacht excursions. Our top choices are Bora Bora, Thanda Island, Maldives and Bali.

For the adventurous, we love the obscure, and highly recommend Svalbard in the arctic circle for northern lights expeditions and polar bear sightings, Galapagos Islands for the world’s most unique animals, and Mafia Island for immersive whale shark experiences.

What should I do if something goes wrong while traveling (lost luggage, health issues)?

This is an incredibly important question to have answers to before you depart for your trip. We work with each client to ensure they have the level of coverage they require for each trip in terms of insurance policies, private evacuation for COVID-19 cases, and emergency rescue recovery. We also provide each client with resources prior to their departure that outline local points-of-contact and embassy resources. With our local connections, our clients also have a go-to person they can contact in the event anything is needed, whether emergency or even simple requests like added amenities or changes to the itinerary. Safety is of utmost importance in the service we provide our clients, and therefore we also think of and plan for contingency.
