Why Use A Travel Agent? A key reason is knowing WHEN TO TRAVEL.
Many places have high demand and off peak or shoulder seasons. Determining when these periods fall and lining them up to your trip can make a huge difference in your individual experience.
There are several factors that I ask my clients to consider -
School schedules and holidays – these range from country to country and breaks can be at different times in different regions. Some countries even stagger their school holidays to help with their own tourism within certain areas. High peak times are busier and tend to be more expensive.
Weather can have a major impact on the time of year to visit. While there is never any guarantee with Mother Nature – there are patterns and typical weather patterns expected within certain seasons. When is hurricane or monsoon season? Are water levels on rivers higher or lower at different times and does the area you want to visit have a regular rainy or severely hot season? Depending on your plans for your vacation, weather can provide you with a great or a not so great environment.
Additionally, religious or cultural holidays can influence how you spend your time away. Some significant sites are closed while holidays are observed while other locations may have special festivals or events that can enhance your experience or draw significant crowds. I help you to understand possible limitations or opportunities and this helps manage expectations accordingly.
Don't choose the wrong time to travel - work with a specialist while planning your holiday to ensure a memorable experience.
