Just a few examples of why couples should use a travel agent:
– A $100.00 difference in price may mean the difference from one layover or 3 layovers! Those layovers could lead to real problems with luggage, delays, missed flights etc. ! How much is it worth to spend your first day of vacation or your honeymoon to be traveling for 14 hours, instead of 6-8?Eating crappy and expensive airport food, and sitting in uncomfortable plastic chairs while watching the same news broadcast over & over on CNN, as compared to sipping your favorite tropical beverage on the beach or in the pool at your honeymoon or vacation destination?
– A couple who loves spending time on an beautiful expansive beach see’s a resort online that claims to be 5 star, the online reviews are really good and the pictures on it’s website are fabulous! The pricing is better than all the other 5 star resorts – they think they found an incredible “deal”!But what wasn’t mentioned or shown is that the beach has been eroded away, there is only enough room for a row of single lounge chairs, the resort is in need of repairs( those pics online- well they were from 15 years ago…..the reviews, well they were put up by management……
– A couple goes to check in at the fabulous all inclusive, adult only, 5 star resort they booked online…only to find that they didn’t purchase the all -inclusive, it was an add on and the ocean front room doesn’t have an actual view of the ocean, rather this resort classifies there rooms according to how close it is to the ocean not the view!
Why not let the Sand & Sun Vacations experienced travel professionals handle the details?
We look forward to making your dreams come true!
