It all began in the summer of 2013. My wife and I would be celebrating our 25th anniversary in Sept of the following year. We wanted to do something special to celebrate. Something we had never done before. After much discussion and research, we decided on a Viking River cruise.
Because of the expense involved, and the logistics of organizing and booking we decided we needed help. We turned to Karen and her crew at Plan A Vacation with a list of questions. We had plenty. What time of year should we go? Who has the best rates? Should we get trip insurance? Karen answered all of these questions and even came up with a few suggestions that we hadn’t thought of. All of this done professionally, personally and with a smile.
I never once felt she was trying to up-sell us, or offer us something we didn’t need. From the point of initial contact a year prior, right up until the day we returned she was there to help our group every step of the way. Sure, you COULD book your trip yourself by visiting dozens of websites offering your credit card number and personal information up to strangers. OR you could book with someone you trust. Someone you know who has the experience and knowledge to find you the best rate, and most of all, be there if something goes wrong.
The biggest misconception to many travelers is that it costs more to use a travel agent. It doesn’t. Trust me, I’ve done the research.
Would I recommend Karen Gill and Plan A Vacation to friends and family? You bet I would!
Thanks for all you do Karen. Our trip of a lifetime never would have happened without you!!
