TEN REASONS TO BOOK WITH A TRAVEL AGENT!

1. Travel agents have been proven in studies to consistently provide their clients with the best value-for-money in their travel spending.

2. Only travel agencies in BC pay into the provincial BC Travel Assurance Fund, so your funds are protected only when you book your travel arrangements with a BC registered travel agency.

3. Travel agents provide full service and professional advice. We have been to, or had training on the destinations we sell.

4. Travel agents can help out in a case of an emergency, or disruption of your travel arrangements. A website somewhere in the USA is not going to help. “Without a travel agent, you’re on your own”

5. Most airfares can be booked and held by travel agents for at least a day, sometimes weeks, until payment and ticketing required. With us you can hold seats, confirm or modify your plans, then pay, vs. instant purchase with an online company such as Escapes.ca

6. Travel agents excel at complex itineraries, as well as, expert and detailed land arrangements.

7. Travel Agents can access charter flights, package vacations, tours, etc that are not bookable on the internet.

8. Travel agents handle all your supplemental arrangements, such as travel insurance, advise on passports and visas, foreign entry requirements, assigning seats, requesting special meals, etc

9. Travel Agents strive to provide their clients unbiased advice, and a full range of options, whereas most large, multinational travel websites have corporate backers biasing their options.

10. Doing business with your local travel agent supports the BC economy, as at least a small portion of your travel dollars stay local, vs. large, corporate travel websites based in Eastern Canada or USA.

Tour conductors work with CruiseShipCenters

Saturday, April 7, 2012

Hi there

Description: https://www.expediacruiseshipcenters.ca/HTM/Generic/enCA/Images/TourConductor/TourConductor.jpgIf you’re a member of a team, organization, group or family that wants to take a holiday, why not suggest a cruise and save with the incredible group rates available. Take the initiative today and become a cruise tour conductor.

Tour conductors work with CruiseShipCenters to make travel arrangements for large groups in exchange for a discounted rate. They’re responsible for reserving a group of staterooms and recruiting enough people to occupy them. Whether for a corporate retreat, family reunion, team event or just plain fun, it’s most efficient and cost effective to book everyone together and take advantage of the exceptional rates.

As a tour conductor you can travel on the cruise of your dreams for free or for a significantly reduced price. You may also receive additional compensation for your efforts. The exact compensation will depend on the size of the group, duration of the trip, the destination and other factors. Tour conductor compensation may be kept as a reward for your effort, shared with members of your group to reduce everyone’s cost (common with family reunions, or friends and family groups) or used as a prize giveaway. Most cruise lines, including Carnival Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International and Princess Cruises, require that a minimum of eight staterooms and 16 guests are booked to constitute a group rate. Please refer to the individual cruise line, as each will have their own set of conditions.

As a tour conductor, it’s your job to round up the troops and to do a thorough job ensuring everyone is onboard. Once you’ve established a committed group, the rest is up to us. We’ll do our best to find you the best sailings and negotiate the best deals. Groups are often eligible for special perks including hosted cocktail parties, stateroom upgrades and shipboard credits.

Europe – has it all – majestic fjords of Norway to seductive Mediterranean sun.  This is a destination for the romantic in all of us.  If you have a bit more time to spare Europe offers cobblestone villages  clinging to sides of craggy cliffs, some of the worlds most romantic cities, great art, food, music, architecture and the promise of fond memories to last a lifetime.

The ship itself can be a haven for a couple who long to spend quiet time together with good wine, table for two and spectacular moonlight nights, strolling arm-in-arm on deck or standing at the ships railing stargazing.  Romance abound in spacious elegant staterooms with balconies to enjoy a private dinner.
