As the world continues to evolve, so does the definition of many things. Many professionals traditionally known as travel agents have transitioned into calling themselves travel advisors. The difference is important: rather than acting as a mere go-between to process travel requests, travel advisors strive to get to know their clients’ needs and preferences in order to create the best vacation experiences for them. Not unlike a financial advisor, a travel advisor not only looks at short-term aspirations but also long-term goals. The latter concept is known as lifelong travel planning. Say that you have a “bucket list” of destinations you want to experience over the next five, ten or twenty years. Perhaps you also expect to have family join you at different stages of your lives. A travel advisor can help you plan keeping finances and time constraints in mind. Of course, one’s tastes or interests may change. A travel advisor will be there for you to adjust your plans. So if you great travel ambitions and feel you would benefit from a professional to help you keep on track for achieving them, why not contact a travel advisor and ask them about lifelong travel planning!
