One common myth about using a travel advisor is that you can find it cheaper online. Sometimes on paper, the “deal” you find on line looks too good to be true (probably because it is!). But what people don’t realize is the the added value, amenities, and promotions (like Virtuoso amenities and Preferred Partner benefits that you can’t get no matter how hard you Google) that your advisor can access can make a huge difference on the bottom line. Don’t just take our word for it – let’s look at some numbers.
A couple is planning a 4-night warm weather getaway to Acqualina Resort and Spa on the Beach. They want to stay in a Deluxe Oceanfront-One Bedroom Suite.

Fourth Night Free Promotion

You can get the same trip for nearly half the price! Through Brownell’s strong relationship with this hotel (and hundreds of hotels around the world!), the Advisor can secure a guaranteed upgrade at booking, so the client only has to pay for Oceanfront One-Bedroom Suite. That combined with Virtuoso amenities and exclusive promotions (like a Fourth Night Free promo that was available for this booking!) means super savings for you. So next time you hear someone say you can find it cheaper online than with a travel advisor, you are one the wiser!
