When booking your vacation, leave it to the professionals

In today's high-click society, searching the Web for the best vacation deal has become a pastime, if not an obsession.

With all of the resources available on the Internet, one might pose the question why should you consider using a travel agent to plan a vacation? There are more reasons than you may think. Here are a few:

You may book your vacations every once in a while, but travel agents are experts in their field. Booking travel is their job and their passion. They have strong relationships with those who cater to your travel needs, such as cruise lines, tour operators and hotels. They attend seminars and travel events and network with other agents and agencies to get the latest information that is not available to non-travel agents. This saves you, the consumer, time and money.

Travel agents are experts in helping travelers get where they need to go and helping create possibilities most people never would have dreamed were possible. They can check multiple providers, multiple destinations and multiple timeframes. Travel agents will listen to the customers' needs, wants and desires and put together a perfect fitting trip.

Here at CruiseOne, Merritt Island we have our own saying, "We bring your dream vacation to life."

Planning a trip can be stressful. There are so many options and details to worry about. Your vacation is a time that should be stress free. Travel agents do the research and work, resulting in less stress for you. In most cases, travel agents provide one-stop service for all arrangements: transportation, lodging, event tickets and special dining reservations. This saves you the time and headache of trying to coordinate with several providers yourself.

Travel agents offer that personal touch to your travel planning experience. They offer help and advice that a Web site cannot provide. You can spend hours on the Internet putting together your own trip and once you are done, it would be hard to find help if you should encounter a problem.

On the other hand, a travel agent is someone you have an ongoing relationship with, like a personal concierge. Travel agents take pride in fitting a customer with the right vacation.

At CruiseOne, each one of our cruise professionals takes pride in providing attention to detail and expert advice to every customer. We believe in combining the latest technology with old-fashioned customer service. Our computerized best-fare search program enables our consultants to identify excellent values on all major cruise lines.

The personal service of our cruise professionals assures that customers receive the best values and excellent customer service on all cruise purchases from short getaways to an around the world voyage. We can help you find the perfect cruise ship, the perfect itinerary and even the perfect shore excursions while you are at your destinations.

What can be more fun and stress free than a cruise?
