Did you know that most travel advisors are just as knowledgeable and well connected on US-based domestic vacations as they are on exotic locales across the globe? Many travelers only think to utilize the services of a professional when it comes to a more far-flung or exotic trip, but you’re leaving behind a ton of value when you don’t engage your travel advisor in all of your vacation planning.
Think about any 4 or 5 star accommodation, even if it’s in our own back yard, and you’re thinking of a trip that your advisor can add value to. Here are 4 reasons why we recommend contacting your Epperly Travel advisor, regardless of how big or small your trip will be:
At Epperly, we’re not getting our passports stamped every time we’re exploring a new locale: in the past several months, we’ve taken intentional trips to Northern California (check out our blog on Carmel + Big Sur), Nashville (need some dining + drinking suggestions?), and the Montage Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina (read more on this little Southern charmer), to name a few. These getaways allow us to get to know the resort staff and sales team, as well as better understand destinations that are an excellent fit for our clientele.
As travel advisors, we do our very best to get to know contacts from all across the States. Don’t forget the fact that most luxury hotel brands, like Ritz-Carltons and Park Hyatts, are part of a larger hotel chain with properties that, while not considered 5 star, are still excellent choices. When it comes to making friends at hotels, we’ve got a rolodex that spans two-degrees of separation from any given sister property to our favorites. If we don’t already have a contact at that hotel you’re staying at in Louisville, we’ll get one – and we’ll make sure you know to sign up for their rewards program, too, so you’ll get free wifi.
We’ll come up with creative ideas to celebrate you, no matter where you are!
If you’re celebrating something special, we love working with our partners on the ground (yes, the ones from that extensive rolodex!) to make sure you’re really taken care of – no matter where in the world you go! For clients who have experienced the Epperly Travel touch, you’ll find this consistent dedication to service and guest experience even in our own back yard.
Our team even popped up to the new Omni at the Battery Atlanta for an Atlanta Braves game recently and were able to see firsthand how far above and beyond these relationships go for extra special touches.
Your Epperly Travel advisor genuinely wants to be a part of ALL of your travel conversations.
One of the core values of the Epperly Travel team is that we genuinely invest in our people. What we mean by that is that we actually want to be a part of your travel plans, no matter how big or small, so that we can continue to get to know you and serve you. When we’re only planning the big things, we can only get a little glimpse into your world – but when we’re regularly in touch to help you with your staycation at the closest Four Seasons, where we can get you some extra perks thanks to our contracts, we’re getting additional face time that we love. You should have an advisor who’s on your team, not a once-in-a-while acquaintance, and that’s exactly what we strive to be.
