Information on travel agent fees – Keeping You Informed
If you are curious about our fees, how we charge and why we charge, then read the following articles to give yourself some perspective. Our goal is to give our best to our clientele. Our business model continuously evolves to only deal with those who truly adore service.
The consultation is an extremely valuable tool. We encourage completion of our trip request (Getting Started) to handle all of the customary details before the complimentary consultation. After all, we want to make the best use of your time. Armed with the information you have provided us in the trip request, we are able to then utilize the complimentary consultation to delve deeper into your vacation desires, your budgetary constraints, provide basic, quick quotes to determine best fit, and more.
If a request is basic vacation planning, our clients are typically deposit ready at the end of the consultation. A deposit is placed for the vacation plan. Hence, no plan to go fee is required…. it is only when further research, planning or decision making is required not allowing for deposits/trip payment during the consult that a plan to go fee is required by Abundant Journeys to maintain the integrity of the relationship.
Hence, if you are just shopping around, uncertain about your travels or otherwise not deposit ready, then we recommend working out those details before consulting with a travel professional. However, if you would like a travel professional to help you with price shopping, narrowing down a selection for you to self-book, concierge or highly customized service, then a fee is commensurate with the service you are requesting. We are more than happy to perform those services for you.
