Jun 7. There are many myths and rumors about travel these days, especially about the role of the travel advisor (and why travelers should use them). People like to say that there is no longer a use for travel advisors and that it’s an easy task to plan a trip on your own—the Internet has wiped away the need for advisors who just book tickets and hotels.
Not so! Any traveler with a trip on the books during the pandemic likely knows the value of professional travel planning these days and why travel advisors are so critical to the vacation experience.
In fact, travel advisor services are needed now more than ever, especially with the changing future of the travel industry.
Advice for travel advisors: Your services are not relics of the past. You are the expert in every category of travel, providing knowledge for your clients that a simple Google search cannot. Think of your services more as “adventure advice”, guiding clients through every turn of their booking journey. Use this language while communicating with potential clients to convey the value of your services.
