As Covid-19 continues to be a part of our daily lives, many consumers have been left to try and figure out their travel itineraries and inevitable real-time adjustments on their own. That’s a risky plan, at best, especially with restrictions, advisories, and cancellations changing daily.

The answer? Use a professional travel agent! Uniquely knowledgeable, a travel agent can be your safest harbor in a storm, as they say, to protect your plans, your money, and your life. To prove it, below are the Top 6 Reasons to Use a Travel Agent In a Covid-19 World.

1. Understanding Safety Protocols

Covid-19 travel safety protocols can be confusing and frustrating. However, professional travel agents, like us at Central America Journeys, know the latest protocols you need to follow to protect your health and the health of your loved ones when you’re traveling. We regularly research all the necessary entry requirements, health reporting apps, and travel insurance that you will need in order to put your mind at ease.

We know that safety in the skies is important to everyone. That’s why we stay up to date on all health and safety measures that each airline is participating in. We will make sure to do comprehensive research for all airline cleaning policies, seating limitations, onboard air quality, and in-flight operations. Safety is always the number one priority! You can rest easy knowing that you’re doing everything to protect yourself and your family so that you can break out of the “bunker”, unwind and have some fun.

2. Adaptability During Times of Change

Traveling during these times can be stressful. Plans can change in an instant, and you don’t want to be the one spending countless hours trying to rearrange your travel plans or even trying to get a refund for a trip that needs to be indefinitely postponed. Having an experienced travel agent on your side can make those maddening chores much easier, more successful and far less aggravating. We coordinate changes and refunds on your behalf, saving you time and frustration.

3. 24/7 Support

Need help before, during, or after your trip? If you’re working with an experienced and caring travel agent, you’ll get it 24/7. No long waiting times on the phone or rude, unhelpful service centers. Just pick up your phone and give your friendly travel agent a call to get the help you need, fast.

We know your time is precious, that’s why orchestrate all the moving parts that go into a perfect vacation. We even have a chat service you can access from any page on our website and also welcome chat via Facebook messenger if that’s how you like to roll.

4. Knowledge of the Safest and Best Destinations of 2021

Knowing where it is best to travel during Covid is one of the most difficult things to do right now. On the other hand, your travel agent knows which countries and destinations are the smoothest and safest (or not so safe) and will help you decide on where and when to travel in 2021. We use our insider knowledge to inform you of the best resorts and vacation destinations; balancing our usual eye for luxury and quality with updated hygiene practices and safety protocols.

At Central America Journeys, we specialize in low population density locations. Let us add to your relaxation by setting you up in one of our exclusive boutique properties away from the masses. We cater to comfort and style with luxury retreats, jungle eco-lodges, private island escapes and distinct beachside villas; all designed for  tranquility and charm. We pledge to keep your family in the safest situations in order to truly relax and unwind.

6. Preparation For a New Age of Travel

Covid-19 has changed the way the world travels, there’s no denying that. To guide you through this new and changing world, you need a seasoned travel agent. The travel experience may be significantly different as we venture into this new age of travel. Changes such as ‘touchless’ environments and ‘health passports’ to certain destinations are just some examples of this new world we live in.

We take pride in our personal services, guiding our clients through the new travel processes. We will keep up with all the changes so that, when you need advice, info, or help, we’re ready to help!
