I recently had the opportunity to visit Fiji and experience this amazing destination first hand. This was my first visit and my expectations of what was in store were different from what I experienced. Not in a bad way, more so from a logistical standpoint, location of resorts, distance between them, etc. Things tend to look different on a map, remember that if you are trying to figure things out on your own.
As a travel professional, I tend to “compare” certain destinations that have similarities. Having traveled all over Mexico, the Caribbean and twice to Tahiti, I thought for sure it would be similar. What I found with Fiji is that you just cannot compare it to any other. I fell in love with just about everything from the moment I arrived, and I am sure you will too. Since there is far too much to put in one blog post I will break it up into several. Let’s start with the reasons I fell in love with Fiji and why I think you’ll love it for your honeymoon.
Travel agent don’t sell travel? Wait a minute… What?
Contrary to popular belief, most travel agents do not sell travel. Online travel sites sell travel, because selling travel is really transactional in nature. When you work with Honeymoons Designed, we are helping you “design” your perfect honeymoon. There is not anything cookie-cutter. Every honeymoon is customized to meet each couples unique wants, needs, dreams and budget.
What do we do then? We are “selling” our knowledge about the destination you are interested in, resorts available in that destination, or the best tour operator for a trip to Tahiti, for example, and using our knowledge, industry contacts and first-hand experience to plan a seamless itinerary. We are also providing peace of mind that every detail of your trip is taken care and reassurance that we are here if something goes wrong (which happens even with the best laid plans). This is very different and steps above working with a faceless internet site that can only interact by clicking a mouse. For such an important occasion don’t you expect more, well, personal service and human interaction?
