What’s a Travel Planner? Explanations & Tips

Many people may confuse the term “Travel Planner” with “Travel Agency” or “Tour Operator.” A travel planner is very different from a tour operator and a travel agency. While both are travel services, they don’t provide a complete end-to-end solution. Most travel agencies, for instance, will not give you a list of tips or show you how to get a discount on train tickets. They leave you to figure it out for yourself. The same goes for a tour operator whose sole goal is to take you on a highly confined tour and then bring you back. 

A travel planner does much more than get you seats on an airline or rooms in a cheap hotel. However, whether you are about to travel abroad on business, vacation, or both, we discuss why you’ll want to get a travel planner onboard. 

Get Pointers from Local Travel Experts 

A local travel expert will be your travel planner for the city you are visiting. For instance, if you’re visiting Dublin, Ireland, you will be hooked up with a local travel expert. That expert will be responsible for telling you everything you need to know as well as showing you everything that’s relevant to your trip. That way, not only are you going to see all the sights, and hear all the sounds but also benefit from things like short cuts, savings on tickets, getting discounts at stores, etc. It is like being a local! 

The Best Places to Stay 

One of the biggest unknowns of traveling to a new city is knowing where you’re going to stay. That’s especially a problem if you’re going to stay with the family for an extended period.
