7 Benefits of Using a CruiseCompete Travel Agent to Book Your Next Cruise Vacation

Research Shows The Personalized Service Of Travel Agents Saves Consumers Time And Money, And Delivers The Best Cruise Vacations

One reason for CruiseCompete’s long-lasting success is that the site blends convenient technology with the knowledge, expertise, and personalized attention of some of the world’s finest travel agents.  CruiseCompete’s member agents work directly with the consumer to research, book, and support their travel plans in a way no purely automated booking tool can.

The process is simple. Once a consumer has reviewed their cruise options, they need only submit a request to compare offers from CruiseCompete’s trusted travel agents.  They can see consumer reviews of agents and agencies responding, then contact travel their agent of choice directly for more information and to book cruises.

Here are 7 great reasons to use a CruiseCompete travel agent:

  1. Experience – The CruiseCompete cruise experts are well-versed in worldwide destinations and the cruise lines that serve those destinations. From ultra-luxury to river, expedition and adventure lines, to small ships, premium and popular lines, expert agents help plan voyages to the four corners of the world. And whether the goal is seeing the small villages in Europe, exotic locales in the South Pacific or breathtaking nature in Alaska, the CruiseCompete experts are there to consult.
  2. Deals & Exclusives –When requesting a quote from CruiseCompete, you will benefit from experience and personal connections of your agent for insider knowledge, custom itineraries, special promotions and exclusive amenities. By leveraging their volume-buying capabilities, more than 750 of the world’s most knowledgeable cruise travel agencies provide the best deals available.
  3. Hassle-Free – CruiseCompete agents are with you from start to finish. Simply request a quote on your desired cruise, then quoting agents can help you find the perfect travel experience and options. No jumping around from site to site, checking and comparing pricing and amenities- CruiseCompete agents do that for you!
  4. Time Savings – Connecting the flights to the transfers, picking the perfect hotel or resort (and trusting the online reviews), deciding on the best tour operators and managing all the other tasks of building a trip can be daunting. Leave the mundane details to a CruiseCompete travel professional so you can focus on what’s important: having fun!
  5. Money Savings – Research from The American Society of Travel Agents proves that travel agents save consumers time and money. Consumers report that travel agents save them an average $452 per trip, and four hours in travel planning. Perhaps most importantly, consumers said that agents help them avoid costly mistakes. 
  6. They’ve Got Your Back – If something goes wrong during your trip, you’ll have an expert to help assist you in arranging alternative travel arrangements, help you to deal with any travel emergency and put you in touch with the right people locally to help you with your situation.
  7. They’ve Got It All – CruiseCompete member-agents are the most well-educated, forward-thinking and trusted cruise specialists in the industry. They’re real people, who:
  8. Are world travelers who know the lines, ships and destinations.
  9. Are consummate professionals who are known within the industry and are members of large travel consortiums.
  10. Are top producers for the cruise lines, ensuring their knowledge, experience and ability to procure the best deals and perks for their clients.
  11. Are highly educated, with up-to-date information from the latest classes and continuing education seminars.
  12.

They can help those who seek out luxury, people interested in eco-travel opportunities or those who seek a unique or exotic locale. They also assist in planning onboard weddings and anniversary celebrations.
  13. Care about you and your vacation – and who are directly reachable in case you need them.
