Risks of Planning Your Own Vacations


Are you thinking about planning your next vacation? Do you feel like you’re on a hamster wheel with endless internet searches when planning your vacations?

There is certainly the right time to use an online booking engine, such as a short weekend getaway where you may only need a flight and hotel. However, if you are looking to plan a 2 week trip to Europe, for example, there are risks involved with planning your own vacation.

IT MAY TAKE YOU 6 MONTHS TO PLAN…

Do endless Google searches sound familiar? Is looking for each component of your trip (transportation, hotels, drivers, activities and excursions) taking you months and months of research? I have heard from clients that before working with me they were spending 6 months planning their European vacations.

The same way we work with an expert for financial planning, haircuts, and taxes, you can also use the help of an expert when planning your vacations. With our detailed process you will have a personalized itinerary within 5 business days from the time you decide to proceed. Once you approve, we book and confirm all your services, prepare you for the trip (with tips, restaurant suggestions, and much more), and send your travel documents 3 weeks before your departure date. It’s that simple!

YOU MAY END UP ON A BUS TOUR OR CRUISE…

You may surrender to the endless hours of Google searches and book your family on an escorted bus tour or large cruise because it’s easy. But then you’re traveling on someone else’s itinerary where everything included may not be right for your family. You may be spending time visiting cities and doing things that are not interesting to your family, and your hard earned vacation dollars are being spent on a pre-planned journey, not one designed just for you.

YOU WILL MISS OUT ON MAGICAL EXPERIENCES…

Our detailed process of learning about each family member’s interests, passions, and hobbies ensures you will have magical experiences to enjoy together. Whether you enjoy biking together as a family, cooking, boating, visiting museums, or taking Segway tours in major cities, our primary goal is ensuring there are unique experiences included for all to enjoy.

YOU MAY BOOK UNRELIABLE SERVICES…

The travel suppliers with whom I partner have been vetted and cater to my clients from the minute they arrive at the airport until their return flight home. These are the local drivers and guides who will welcome you to their regions and make you feel at home. They will take you to off-the-beaten-path places, offer you food tastings, and truly make your entire vacation unforgettable. Plus when working with Distinct Vacations in reserving at any of our preferred properties, not only do you receive VIP treatment, you will also have access to special amenities (such as a spa credit, complimentary breakfast, and room upgrades).

YOU WON’T HAVE ANYONE TO ASSIST WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG…

While at your destination you will have a 24-hour contact to assist with any concerns or unforeseen circumstances. This year, more than ever, we have learned how things can change in an instant. If you had a vacation planned on your own it was probably challenging to cancel or postpone all your services (especially if you booked everything online). I spent months cancelling and postponing clients’ trips and ensuring they received refunds or credits for future travel. This is the service you should expect when working with a travel professional.

Are you thinking about planning your vacation for 2021 or 2022 but are feeling overwhelmed and wondering if everyone in your family will enjoy the experience? Contact me to schedule your complimentary consultation to get started. Our detailed process in getting to know you and designing your custom itinerary will ensure your family will create the most treasured vacation memories.
