This is a darn right lie! Never mind a myth.
Why is that you say, because now a days, many travel professionals like myself offer different products and destinations. Also, various lifestyles of travel. We also know the people in charge of the resort/hotel/cruise lines, etc and that way, we have the connections to reach out to that person and not just a customer service representative, meaning if you call them directly, you will get a different person every time; we call our BDM (Business Development Managers), Inside Sales Teams, and if we need to go in that direction Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Example: Since 2010, Nelson and I have have been Certified Sandals Specialists. Why should that matter to you.
- Not all travel agents offer Sandals or Beaches resorts, same company, but Sandals is for Couples in Love Only!! Beaches is for Friends and Families!! In English speaking Caribbean Countries.
- Every year, we go for an annual review of services, operations, new events and any renovations of these destinations.
- We also get to go to these destinations, so we can find our for ourselves which one of the 16 destinations on 6 Islands. Would fit our clients that best.
Below is a video I took of the Red Lane Spa at Sandals Ochi Resort, In Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
Some other destinations we are specialists in; but not limited to:
Disney Destinations: Walt Disney World; Disneyland; Aulani (Hawaii Resort): Disney Cruise Lines.
