The Value of Travel Advisors

Travel advisors are industry insiders, voyage visionaries, and experience builders, guiding your travels around the world through their knowledge and recommendations. From destinations and all-in-one resorts, to the more specific restaurants, sightseeing options, and even trendy hotspots, a travel advisor does it all. For almost 70 years, GOGO Vacations’ unwavering commitment has been to support and guide the travel advisor community. From large groups and long-haul adventures to luxury beach retreats, our purpose is to curate memorable vacation experiences together. And today, this includes helping to navigate the ever-changing needs of travelers. It’s a reminder that when you book with a GOGO-backed travel advisor that you too benefit from the guidance, irresistible value, peace of mind, and trusted service we are committed to providing.

Here are just some of the reasons using a travel advisor is more important than ever:

Post-Pandemic Knowledge
As the world begins to reopen for travel, it can be difficult to keep up with which areas and countries are accepting visitors, let alone the complications regarding local restrictions, travel regulations, and finding places to stay with increased safety standards. It’s enough to make you want to stay home even after months of wanting to get out! Instead of getting frustrated, contact a travel advisor to do all of the legwork for you. Industry experts can help you navigate all of the rules for a more seamless experience both before and during your vacation.

Time Savers
Armed with the latest information about packages, properties, and new activities, travel advisors have inside information that you’d have to spend hours searching for online. With years of experience and firsthand knowledge, travel advisors save you countless hours and plan your trip with expertise no search engine can give. Plus, they’ll do price comparisons, provide insider tips, restaurant recommendations, and more, depending upon your preferences and destination.

Well Connected
From rooms with the best views to construction updates and upcoming events, travel advisors have all the inside info you can’t find on your own. Their industry connections not only help get you the best value for your journey, they also deliver access to exclusive packages and offers, the ability to make unique requests, and assist in special arrangements that would be almost impossible to do on your own.

Readily Available
Travel advisors are available for you in store, by telephone, through email, and even via online chat. Some are even social savvy, allowing you to access their deals, expertise, and recommendations on social media. And even once you’ve completed booking, your partnership doesn’t end there. Whether it’s a change in plans before your trip or needing something while you’re away, your travel advisor is available to assist.

That Personal Touch
Masters at finding the perfect destination and resort for even the most discerning traveler, travel advisors work with you one-on-one to pair you with that all-inclusive property, luxury spa resort, or family-friendly getaway. It’s this kind of customized approach that makes travel planning with an advisor a stress-free experience. From rebooking during a weather-related event and battling unexpected flight cancellations to handling issues with your accommodations, your travel advisor acts as your personal travel advocate.
