Most of us love attending destination weddings, family reunions, and other great group events. However, no one actually prefers the planning part. And it’s no wonder… finding the best location for the event, coordinating everyone’s schedules, and making sure everything is set down to the last detail is not easy. Yet there’s a simple way to turn that never-ending to-do list into a checklist with only one item—call an advisor. Letting a professional handle all the hard stuff leaves you ready to have more fun (and can even save you money). Here’s how planning with an expert—like your GOGO-backed travel advisor—is your event’s secret weapon:
Count on Customer Care
Taking care of travel plans for ten, twenty, or a hundred people definitely requires a special skill set. A travel expert makes the whole process effortless, all the way through planning, packing, and traveling.
While You’re Planning
Travel advisors can guide you through choosing the right destination, transportation, and accommodations to meet your specific needs. They can also coordinate your guests’ bookings for you so you don’t have to juggle your party’s payments and last-minute changes (more on that momentarily).
While You’re Packing
Before you travel, your advisor ensures that your entire party has what they need for a smooth trip. Visa checks, passport checks, and insider tips for your destination are all part of the package. Plus, they’re there to field any of your last-minute questions.
While You’re Traveling
You can count on a real person to watch your back during your group trip. If anything doesn’t go according to plan, you can rely on the relationship you built with your advisor to help solve any last-minute problems.
