Your big day is on the horizon and you are wondering how you can make it as special as it can possibly be. After all, this is a big deal and it doesn't happen everyday. One of the growing trends today is planning a destination wedding. In fact, it is estimated that almost 25% of weddings last year were destination weddings. And while many people still have the idea that a destination wedding would be out of their price range, the actually fact of the matter is that you can make one very affordable. Just think about how relaxing it would be to have your wedding in some exotic location. The only thing that you will have to be concerned about in planning a destination wedding is that there are quite a few more complications to consider and find solutions to. With this in mind, we cannot recommend strongly enough that you seek out the services of a professional travel agency. Believe us, the last thing that you need right now are more details to worry about. A knowledgeable travel agency will take care of all of the details and it will be seemless for your guests. Not to mention that everyone will get to where they are supposed to be and have a place to stay. Start looking around the Cincinnati area for reputable travel agencies. Then take this guide with you when you meet with candidates, the time and effort will all be worth it when you have the right professional working for you.
So, where is the best place to come up with some quality candidates? There are a few that we suggest. Start your search by asking people you know whether they have ever worked with a travel agency or know of someone who has. This includes your family, friends and coworkers. Also, do not forget about the world wide web. You can do a Google search for “travel agencies in the Cincinnati area.” You will have many results and you can start taking your time checking each one out. Or your wedding vendors that you have already hired should have some knowledge of a quality travel agency. We are confident that after exploring these three sources, you should have a list of potential travel agencies to check out. Contact each one and ask for a date and time that you can meet in order to discuss your wedding needs.
In the interview, talk about their experience. How many destination weddings have they planned? What kind of training did they go through? What size groups have they booked on trips like yours? If they are only used to small groups and yours is very large, you might want to think again about hiring such a vendor. Are they members of any professional organizations? Are they certified? How much will their service cost you? What are their payment options? Can they provide a number of different options for your guests? Do all of your guests have to stay at the same location? Is there a cancellation fee? Do they offer travel insurance? Will they provide a travel guide to your guests which covers the area everyone will be in for your wedding. This is an important hire and you should take it very seriously. So, take your time and figure out which of your candidates will be the perfect fit for you and your guests.↑ Back to the top ↑
