What really is the “value” of using a travel advisor? Let us ask you this: when you plan your own travel, do these questions sound familiar: “What hotel do I want-should we do all inclusive, or something different? What kind of experiences can we do while we are there? What about transportation accommodations? Am I getting the best deal? What will be the best time to travel? I need to look at flights and compare and budget..” This might take you a few hours a week, depending on the type of trip you’re planning.
When you book through a travel advisor, you are benefiting from the following:
Saves you SO much time!-as mentioned above, planning a trip can be SO time consuming.
They're the experts on brands
Travel advisors have great relationships with resorts, transportation companies, etc. that they work with. Our CS Elements Travel advisors also travel multiple times per year, educating themselves with first hand knowledge & experience of many different brands. It’s one thing to look up reviews and pictures online, but it’s another thing when a professional can tell you first hand pros and cons of a property that you might be interested.
Think "Personal Assistant" for Travel
Think of having a personal assistant, but for travel! A one person point of contact that you are in contact with in all aspects of your trip, this also includes any emergencies that might be affiliated with your travel plans.

It's All In The Details
Your travel advisors can not only plan your trip, but can also make you custom itineraries for your stay.
