"Travel Agents are too expensive to use."

"I thought Travel Agents went away with the dinosaurs."

"Travel is a DIY project. I can do it all with a few clicks."

I have heard all of this and more.

You may be surprised at what a travel specialist can offer.

If you can get a great deal in 30 seconds online, that’s preferable to playing phone tag with me, but there are times when planning a trip with a me will save you time, money, and frustration.

Here’s how to tell when you should call me and when to go it alone. I recognize that no two travelers and no two trips are exactly alike. I will take the time to understand your unique travel needs and interests and translate them into your own personalized travel experience.

1. Can a travel agent save me money?

YES! Did you know... 402 Travel does not charge customers for their services; instead their payment comes through hotels, cruiselines and other wholesalers. This means you can tap into a free service. Think of me as your friend with travel benefits.

2. Is there Added Value when I use a Travel Specialst?

3. Can a Travel Agent help make planning my Vacation stress-free?

I can offer you insider tips and advice, and handle all of the arrangements so you can focus on enjoying your getaway.

4. If something goes wrong on my Vacation, how can you help me?

Hopefully, this will not happen! Did you know.... Sometimes bad things happen. Your luggage could fall off a pier. Your flight could be cancelled. Or maybe you forgot to grab that darn passport before you left. If anything should go wrong during your trip, you can rely on me. Just call me as soon as you can. I also offer you a wide variety of travel insurance options to protect your vacation investment.

5. Is a 402 Travel qualified to plan my next Vacation?
