How the right travel professional can make a difference in your vacation experience

My Vacation Lady knows that you have lots of options when it comes to booking your vacation or honeymoon.  Between social media boards blasting vacation deals and every hotel and online  travel agency that you have ever logged into, blasting you with weekly specials (or more) plus the Special Offer emails coming from the deals companies, your head is probably spinning.

Just the other evening at a bridal show, a mother of the bride came up to me and asked what the best deal was for her daughter’s honeymoon.  I responded that without knowing anything about the couple, I can’t begin to tell them what the best deal is because it’s only the best deal if it’s the RIGHT honeymoon for them.

At My Vacation Lady, we pride ourselves on creating your dream vacation or honeymoon.  We’re not going to fit your vacation or honeymoon dreams into a cookie cutter package just because the budget is right.  We’re going to offer you options and choices that may interest you more than the “deals” you found online because it is closer to what you really are looking for and what you really want to experience.

One of our colleagues, Charlie Funk of Just Cruisin’ Plus wrote an article for one of our travel agent trade magazines and summed it up pretty well.

Our (business) model emphasizes service, putting together a lot of moving parts and creating a vacation that makes memories that last a lifetime. For years, we tried to compete with rebaters. Then I came to realize that it wasn’t our model that couldn’t compete with their model. It was their model that couldn’t compete with the quality customer service we insist on providing…

I needed to find our strengths and exploit them. And it has worked. We increasingly see clients who understand that the cheapest price isn’t necessarily the best value as it relates to service.

Don’t feel pressured to fit your honeymoon or vacation dreams into a discounted special deal.  We all work way too hard to spend our hard earned money on a vacation that isn’t what you hoped it would be.
