Why Book With A Travel Agent?

In a world where online booking platforms and credit card concierge services dominate the travel industry, you might be wondering why more luxury travelers are turning to travel agents. Isn't this profession outdated? Well, let me tell you, if you're considering your next trip, you'll want to hear what we at LuxRally Travel have to say. We're here to debunk the myths and show you the ten compelling reasons why using a LuxRally Travel Agent is the ultimate upgrade.

#1. Booking Websites Can Cost You More Than You Think



When you book through those popular online platforms, you may not realize that hotels are hit with hefty fees, making you a less profitable and desirable guest. At LuxRally Travel, we pride ourselves on sending high-spend clients to hotels, ensuring that you're treated like a VIP from the moment you arrive. It's important to note that LuxRally Travel can usually match or beat the prices you find on booking websites, so if price is your concern, we've got you covered.


#2. Hotels Care About Where Their Guests Come From



Booking websites often attract price-sensitive clientele who are quick to complain, resulting in hotel staff paying less attention to guests from these sources. When you book through one of these sites, you automatically get lumped in with these types of travelers. But when you book with us, you become part of our LuxRally Travel community, known for its discerning taste and high standards. Our clients spend more on average on dining, spa treatments, and other on-site activities. Hotels will take you seriously because they know you're associated with us.


#3. Personalized Support That Goes Beyond Call Centers



When you book on your own or through American Express, you're left navigating call centers and reception desks for support. But with LuxRally Travel, you simply text, call or message your dedicated travel agent. Our agents have access to an extensive network of hotel contacts worldwide. If something goes wrong during your trip, simply reach out to your agent, and we'll handle it promptly. No more waiting on hold or being passed from person to person.


#4. Unlock Exclusive Benefits and Upgrades



One of the perks of booking through LuxRally Travel is the array of complimentary benefits you receive. From upgrades upon arrival to early/late check-in/check-out options, free breakfast for two, and even resort credits for dining and spa experiences, we go above and beyond to enhance your luxury travel experience.


#5. Access Unmatched Deals and Insider Knowledge



We have an arsenal of tools and a dedicated team that negotiates deals exclusively for our clients. Whether you dream of staying at Nizuc, Wymara, or Casa de Campo, we have strong relationships with these properties, allowing us to offer you directly negotiated deals. Moreover, travel agents like us can access special rates and benefits worldwide that aren't available to the general public. We'll ensure you get the best deal possible.


#6. Differentiating Genuine Quality from Instagram Hype



With our agency booking tens of thousands of room nights each year, we have a wealth of first-hand perspectives on hotels worldwide. We understand the difference between genuine luxury and mere Instagram hype. Say goodbye to the disappointment of arriving at a poorly maintained resort with subpar food. With LuxRally Travel, you can trust our expertise in curating exceptional travel experiences.


#7. Personalized Service Tailored to Your Needs



When you book through American Express or online platforms, you're often dealing with call center representatives who do not know you, your standards, or the details of your trip. At LuxRally Travel, we build personal relationships with our clients, getting to know you and your travel goals intimately. Your dedicated travel agent acts as your advocate, ensuring your preferences are met and going the extra mile to infuse your stay with thoughtful surprises. Celebrating a special occasion? We'll work with the hotel to make it unforgettable.


#8. Unlock Unbeatable Group Rates and Suite Negotiations



If you're planning a group trip or looking to book a luxurious suite or penthouse, LuxRally Travel has got you covered. We specialize in negotiating group rates, often securing discounts of 40-50%.


For penthouses and suites, we can negotiate the price as much as 20%, depending on the hotel occupancy. When the price isn't flexible, we negotiate value-add and service options. We leverage our relationships to prioritize your preferences. From favorite drinks available 24/7 to customized room setups, we make sure you feel like a VIP.


#9. Transparent and Cost-Free Services



You might be surprised to learn that our services come at no cost to you. Just like booking sites, hotels pay us a commission, but our rates are lower than what those platforms charge to the hotels. This is why hotels love working with us. You get all the benefits and upgrades without spending an extra cent. Unlike traditional travel agencies or luxury memberships that charge hefty fees, LuxRally Travel is committed to providing exceptional service without additional costs to our clients.

So, if you're ready to elevate your travel experiences to new heights, it's time to consider using a travel agent. Let LuxRally Travel take care of your next trip, and you'll see first-hand why luxury travelers are embracing our seamless travel services. Reach out to us with your travel details, and we'll provide you with a quote and get you booked. 


Q&A


Are travel agents only for luxury travelers?


While our expertise lies in catering to luxury travelers, we can assist anyone looking for personalized service, exclusive benefits, and unbeatable deals. Whether you're planning a honeymoon, family vacation, or corporate retreat, LuxRally Travel has the knowledge and connections to make your trip unforgettable.


Can I still earn loyalty points and enjoy hotel rewards when booking through LuxRally Travel?


Absolutely! When you book with us, you'll still be eligible to earn loyalty points and enjoy hotel rewards programs. In fact, our strong relationships with hotels often allow us to secure additional perks and upgrades that enhance your trip beyond the standard loyalty program experience. Make sure to give your loyalty membership information to your travel agent. Now, suppose you are booking a room or trip with points. In that case, your travel agent will not service that portion of the trip. The booking would be made directly through the hotel with points, making the reservation inaccessible to the agent. However, your travel agent could handle the other legs of your journey.


How do I book through LuxRally Travel?

Getting started is easy! Simply send us your travel dates, budget, desired destinations, and any specific preferences or requirements you have. We'll take care of the rest, providing you with a personalized quote and handling all the details to ensure your trip exceeds your expectations.
