Why work with me to plan your destination wedding, honeymoon or family vacation?
Why Work With Me?
With so much information readily available at your fingertips on the internet, you probably wonder why people still work with a travel agent. Many people are surprised to find we still exist! But trust me when I say, those who do not take advantage of a knowledgable and helpful Travel Agent, and choose to book their destination weddings, honeymoons, and vacation travel on their own are truly missing out. Here are just a few reasons why!
Shannon’s Trusted Knowledge
We live in a world of information overload. So, when you are researching on the Internet, it's hard to know which information you can trust - is the resort description up to date? Will there be renovations during your travel dates? Are the reviews honest and accurate? Your room category says "ocean view", but will you have a direct view of the ocean or just a partial ocean view? What kind of activities are available to you near the resort or in the destination? - these are just a few questions you should think about when planning your trip because all of these issues and more can impact your overall experience. My job is to gather as much knowledge as I can so that you will have the best experience possible on your journey. I love the fact that I have access to so much information about the destinations they are traveling to and can share my knowledge with my clients to ensure you have the best experience every time they travel.
By working with Journeys by Shannon, you will have access to all of my knowledge, personal experience, resources and information that you just won't find by booking direct on the internet. I will work directly with you through every step of the process to ensure we are creating a customized package that matches your vision for your honeymoon, destination wedding, or vacation.
Utilizing a Travel Agent is at NO Cost to YOU!
My services are free to you. The relationships I have cultivated over the years with travel suppliers, hotels, and resorts are what allows me to book you the best pricing possible along with personalized service through every step of the planning process. When I work with you to plan your destination wedding, honeymoon or family vacation, you can be sure I am helping you get the best value for your money, and all of this at no additional cost to you! Just sit back, relax, and enjoy!
First you will fill out a request form that will help me understand your needs/wants. I will follow up with a phone or in-person consultation (if your schedule allows) and then will send you 2-3 options to choose from. After you select your destination, resort, and room, I will add airfare, transfers, land tours, special dinners, spa appointments or anything else you would like to enhance your experience and complete your package. You will receive reminders, tips, travel documents, and other fun things from me! I will also be in touch with my contacts at the resort to ensure you are well taken care of while you are on your vacation.
Journeys by Shannon Will Save You Time
You could spend countless hours researching on the internet and still not know whether you are finding what you want until you actually arrive at your resort. I have traveled, and continue to travel, to many resorts and destinations to get a better idea of which resort will be the best fit for my clients. I also have many contacts in the industry with valuable knowledge of resorts and destinations that I haven't yet had the pleasure to visit. I utilize all of my resources and contacts to help me create the best honeymoon, destination wedding, or vacation package for you. So, you simply tell me what you want and let me do the rest. You can enjoy your free time!
Value for Your Money
Value, not price - this is the key in planning a honeymoon, destination wedding, or vacation. My job is to help you get the most value for your money to ensure that you are satisfied with your vacation investment. This may not always mean the cheapest room or package, but part of my process is to compare pricing with different suppliers to ensure you are getting the best value for your money and to make suggestions to enhance your experience at the destination of your choice.
When you book your honeymoon, destination wedding, or vacation with me, all that is required is a minimal deposit to book your room (unless it is a last minute booking). You also have the option of setting up a payment plan to help you pay the balance of your trip. I will work with you to help you manage the payments for your trip and send reminders when payments are due.
