Choosing the right travel advisor
Is it time to hire a travel advisor for my trip to Greece?
Travel as we knew it has changed. DYI planning may be ok for a weekend escape to New York or for a week’s break at the beach on the coast of Lake Michigan, but a trip to Greece involves lots of coordination.
We hear it repeatedly from new clients: “I always planned my own trips”, “it was easy to research online and click and book”.
“But now, everything is so overwhelming. Where to start? How to book, coordinate and monitor all of the tiny details surrounding this trip?”
Information overload. It’s the number #2 reason clients hire Real Greece Travel to plan and manage their trips to Greece.
