This week on Avid Travel With Britton Frost, I am joined by Bridgett Quinn from Cruise Specialists, a travel agency focusing solely on cruising. Bridgett and I sat down to discuss travel agents and the value they can provide – at no additional cost.
Something that I didn’t realize before talking to Bridgett was that most travel agents provide their services at no additional cost to their clients. With that being said, why not take advantage of a travel agent’s services? There are other perks that come with using agents including additional savings, shipboard credits, and more. But apart from all of that, having someone with vast knowledge of the industry is enough reason to work with an agent.
In addition to speaking about travel agents, we also spoke about trends in river cruising and why it is a good option for ocean cruisers looking for something new to try. We also talked about the growth of expedition cruising, and trends in Alaska for the summer. If you are a river cruiser looking to take an ocean cruise, an Alaska cruise may be a good option for you. Alaska cruises are destination focused and provide a similar amount of activity to what you may experience on the river.
Whether or not you are looking to branch out, this podcast provides a lot of insight into how travel agents can assist your booking process, saving you time, money and adding value.
