As someone who has traveled extensively with many destinations still on my bucket list, I often hear "I wish I could go, but I can't afford it" more times than I can count. I want you to know that you CAN afford to travel and I want to share with you how you can make your travel dreams come true.
So You Want to Go on a Beach Vacation?
Just about every day, a friend, client or even a family member will tell me that they wish they go to some exotic destination, but they will just rent a house at the beach because it's cheaper. Guess what? Generally, this is not the case!
Think about this for just a moment: If you rent a house, what are the real monetary expenses? The house, the security deposit, cleaning fees, food, drinks, snacks, activities, gas, incidentals, and a lot more. We haven't even discussed the time and stress involved in getting ready to go and the lugging and lifting once you get there because you're doing it all yourself. And oh boy - those rainy days and keeping the kids entertained? Ugh!
We have a better idea that is generally more affordable! Have you considered an all-inclusive resort where EVERYTHING, and yes, we mean EVERYTHING is included? Fantastic food, imported and domestic drinks, beautiful accommodations (and sometimes with your own butler), privacy (because your whole family is not sleeping on blow-up beds in the rental house), stocked mini-bars and liquor dispensers, water and land activities, daily and nightly entertainment, kids and teen clubs, and so much more...all for one price. You don't have to imagine what you "may" spend when you get there!
So here's what you need to know! The "deals" you see on the internet with online travel agencies like Expedia or Bookit - those disappear before you can even show the rest of your family, don't they? And, they only work if you can pay the whole thing up front. We're going to show you how to avoid this trap! Keep reading!
Does Your Bucket List Include Europe?
Oh how I love Europe! The history, the art, the food, the wine, and wow - the people! There are just so many choices and so little time! In fact, there are so many ways to see Europe - how can you possibly choose from independent land tours, escorted tours, ocean cruises, and river cruises?
So how can you afford to go to Europe? First, you should consider planning long in advance. As of this writing, we are just about in the last quarter of 2016. Did you know that you can already book into 2018 for Europe? This provides you with ample time not only to perfect an itinerary, but to save and make payments on your exciting journey.
Europe is meant to be experienced - not just seen in a superficial, hit-or-miss way. You will need to budget your vacation time so that you have a minimum of 10 days to really enjoy the things you love. Remember - you are going to lose two days flying there and back! Depending on where you want to go and what you want to experience, planning and booking a trip to Europe on your own is not recommended, especially for first-time visitors.
Did you know that in Italy, transit strikes occur with no notice (planes, trains, and automobiles!)? Did you know that if you sail out of Southampton on an ocean cruise, that flying into London requires a 2 - 3 hours transfer to the port? Do you know safe, friendly English-speaking, vetted drivers who can take you on private excursions wherever and however you want? Do you know the best restaurants to eat at and why? Do you know how to skip the lines at major tourist attractions? The questions....they never end because there are so many things to consider!
Here is the good news! At Groupit Travel, we know all of the ins and outs of Europe and we know secrets and people that you'll never find on the internet. Not only can we plan a customized experience that will knock your socks off and provide you with memories to last a lifetime - but we can ensure that you can make small monthly payments on your trip! Doesn't that sound like a way to afford Europe?
Love to Adventure?
Adventure Travel is exhilarating, especially for all of our beloved clients who are adrenaline-junkies. But, did you know there are soft adventure trips for all ages and needs?
Many of our clients have told us how much they love that Groupit Travel does all of the work in putting together small-group, exclusive adventure tours that are affordable and take them off-the-beaten track. What they also love is that they can make a small deposit and pay their trip off in monthly or intermittent payments.
Want to go zip-lining in Costa Rica? Or, maybe take a small-ship cruise into the nooks and crannies of Hawaii or Alaska (you know...the parts that no one else ever sees on the huge cruise ships)? How about running with the bulls in Pamplona with a front-row seat to the festivities? Want to experience a National Geographic Journey? Care to get up-close-and-personal with the wildlife on a Safari to Africa? Hoping to propose or get married on top of a glacier in Iceland or in a hot-air balloon?
Groupit Travel can make any of this happen for you in a way that you can afford to do it! In addition to our expertise and travel guidance, not to mention incredible logistical management skills and creativity - small deposits, monthly payments, and plenty of advance planning goes a long way!
What About Those Groups?
Ahhhh....group travel! Who do you think has all of the fun? The group leader doing all of the planning and work, or everyone else in the group who just show up for the good times? From family reunions to destination weddings to alumni or special interest groups, and corporate and incentive groups, please trust me - you are going to be working from the time you start planning until the time everyone returns home if you want a DIY experience. That's why I recommend you reach out to a Group Travel Expert - so that you can enjoy the trip just like everyone else!
I love planning group travel - in fact, it is my absolute favorite thing to do! It's also my area of expertise and as a certified group travel expert - I take every detail seriously. Let's face it - the success of your group travel experience is completely in the details.
One of the most common requests that I get from group leaders is that they have a price in mind, a destination in mind, even perhaps a cruise or resort in mind and they want everyone to have exactly the same option. However, from experience, I can tell you that members of your group all have different price points they want to spend, different room categories they want to be in, and different activities they want to participate in. Customization and options are key to a successful group travel experience and we will create all of this for you!
Are you aware that you can contact me and I will do all of the work for you at no charge to you or the group? And, because we arrange for group pricing, amenities, perks and even secret rewards that you won't know about until you arrive, you cannot find a better value than what Groupit Travel can provide!
Of course, your group will think you are a rock star and want to travel with you all of the time once they see the incredible experience you have for them, not to mention that they will have the ability to make small deposits and monthly payments.
Here is How YOU Can Afford to Travel!
With Groupit Travel, we plan, manage, and book your entire travel experience and we don't charge you a penny for our services. We take the time to learn all about you and what you want because we know that you have worked hard for your travel dollars and only perfection will do! The benefits of using a travel expert cannot be overstated - value, value, value!
Once we provide you with the proposal that meets all of your needs and desires, you pay a per person deposit. After that, you can make monthly or intermittent payments (that is totally up to you!) until your final payment date, which is generally 60 days prior to your departure date. We can even include the airfare in your package so no surprises there either!
And while we're on the topic....want to surprise someone with a trip as a gift? We can help you plan and book that trip with a deposit and provide you with a beautiful gift certificate or gift card to present to them and you can still continue to make payments until the final payment date! Isn't that more memorable, rewarding and exciting than buying them stuff they don't need?
Still think you can't afford to travel? I bet you can! Call me at 919-578-9028, ext. 101 or email me and let me help you figure it out.
