Benefits of Working with a Travel Agent


Recently I met with Melissa Pomeroy of Fiji Vacations, a Fiji resorts specialist, in their Costa Mesa office to learn more about working with a travel agency.

I will get right to the point. Before meeting her, I would have wondered in today’s online world if travel agents still exist?

But after doing some online research and from what I learned from Melissa, the answer is a resounding, YES, and the benefits to the traveler are HUGE.

First and foremost, working with a travel agency like Fiji Vacations is absolutely FREE to the consumer.

Fiji Vacations has the same contracts with the resorts and airlines as the BIG online travel sites do. But they include so much more value than booking solely on a travel website.

There are no fees or mark ups, but the benefits and resources you can take advantage of can be priceless.

Benefits of Working with Fiji Vacations

1. Expertise of agents with first hand knowledge of the destination, resorts, airlines, logistics and activities

2. Ability to book a trip up to 24 months in advance

3. After initial deposit, you have the ability to make vacation payments, whenever you would like, as long as trip is paid in full 60 days prior to departure

4. Ease of payment to one entity

5. Open line of communication with your agent to answer questions along the way


Does the Resort Live Up to the Photos?

Most all hotel photos online look pretty spectacular, right?

But, have you ever booked a trip online based on the photos and when you saw it in person got a huge “WAH WAH” feeling of disappointment when the place did not live up to the website?

Melissa and her agents at Fiji Vacations have been to all the Fiji resorts.

Every single one.

If your priority is a Fiji resort with an amazing beach and sparkling water, they know the properties you will love.

If your priority is a family-friendly resort with an awesome Kids’ Club, they have the resorts for you.

Are you into scuba diving? So is Melissa, she will give you the full scoop.

When planning a vacation like this, you want to make sure you stay at the property that meets, and hopefully exceeds, your expectations.

That’s why every Fiji Vacations agent will work with you to find out the things that are important to you in a resort destination to help make the very best recommendations.

Online Booker Beware

Many people go online looking for the best deals, and there are deals that can be found for Fiji resorts.

But many of them require full payment up front or don’t include transfers to the hotel from the airport (which are VERY important when traveling to Fiji), or have lots of black out dates, etc.

The fine print can get you, so always make sure you understand exactly what the limitations are before you press the “Book” button.

A Full Service Boutique Travel Agency 

When you talk to Fiji Vacations to book one of the amazing luxury Fiji resorts, they will ensure that everything is taken care of for you.

They can book your flights, transfers, welcome, accommodations, even meal plan if you would like it included, etc.

Then you make payment(s) to Fiji Vacations in U.S. dollars, not to the various companies separately. So much less hassle and infinitely more convenient.

Above and Beyond

Would your big travel website give you a loaner cell phone or pocket Wifi device to take on your trip?

How about a personal cell phone number to contact if there are any issues while you are traveling?

What if you need to ask a tip about a product to use for frizzy hair? Or need to know the types of outlets at the resort?

Your Fiji Vacations travel agent is like a Fiji concierge, there to help you with all the local knowledge you need to make your trip the best ever.

And again, there is no added fee for this.
