5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Travel Agent

This weekend at a travel conference in Las Vegas, we were surrounded by thousands and thousands of people who worked in the travel industry. From hotel execs to airlines to tour guides to travel agents, it was clear from the moment we stepped into the room that the travel industry is booming. Ask anyone that was at the conference—the one thing people want to do? Travel. No matter what. 

However, the way we travel has changed throughout the years. It was evident this weekend as we chatted with other industry folks, but the one thing that remains the same? People want their trips to go perfectly. They want to have the experience of a lifetime. Whenever we’re asked the number one question all travel agents are asked: “But can’t people book their own trips? Why do they need you?” We can easily say, “Because you can’t book the kind of trips we’d give you online.” 

So if you’ve ever asked the question above and wondered why anyone would pay for a planner, we’ve got the list for you.

1. Personalized and custom trips
Each and every trip Limitless Planet plans for you is unique and completely for you. The type of trip we put together isn’t something you can find online by googling the location you’re visiting and hoping to find the perfect tour. We have been to the destinations and know exactly where you should go based on the type of traveler you are. We work with local guides who help us get you the very best of the very best all while staying in your budget. Trust us, Expedia and TripAdvisor have nothing on personal experience. 

2. Time saving
If you’ve ever planned a trip from top to bottom, you know how time consuming it is. Which hotel do you stay in? What’s the best way to get from this city to this city? Is flying in early or late the better option? Which trains should I choose? Which museums? The list goes on and on and on. Guess what? We plan it all. From start to finish. You let us know where you want to go and we’ll work with you on making sure it’s the perfect trip—without taking up a lot of your own time. No more scrolling through page after page of activities. We got you.

3. Stress-free experience
When we said you’ll have the experience of a lifetime, we mean it. When you hire us, we have every single part of your trip covered—from the pre-planning to when you land back home. If anything happens while you’re gone, all you do is contact us and we’ll make sure that everything gets taken care of. You don’t have to worry about a thing—except maybe travel insurance.

4. Our ethical practices
One of the best and most exciting parts about booking with Limitless Planet is that we work with locally with the community. All the money that goes into our trips goes straight to the community you’re visiting. We always want to make sure tourism dollars are helping build up the locations we visit and not taking away from them. 

5. Because we’re awesome
We know they say not to toot your own horn, but *toot toot.* There has to be a reason why 99% of our clients come back to us to plan their trip. We’re the best of the best. We create experiences that no one else in the world can get you because of our relationships with locals. After living abroad and traveling around for years, Limitless Planet’s team has the experience you want and need in a trip domestically or internationally. We’re here for you anytime you need us. Give us a call.
