Do you love taking family photos every year? Why not do it with the stunning Tahitian scenery in the background? Your Travel Advisor knows a network of local photographers and can set-up an appointment for them to capture those priceless memories. When else will your family be in a better mood?
Do you or a loved one have special needs that make it difficult to leave home? Your Travel Advisor can contract out everything from oxygen tanks to mobility scooters to hospital beds. Whatever you need to make your trip possible, they can make it happen!
Want to see a soccer tournament? What about going to the Super Bowl? Is the Olympics on your bucket list? You tell us what you want to see and we’ll work out all of the logistics and get the tickets for you!
Anytime you refer a friend to The Travel Byrds, we will pay you $50! There’s no limit to how many referrals you send our way. (Your friend will just need to spend at least $1,000 with us. Learn more here!)
Jealous of the free upgrades and perks of the Platinum Club members? Through The Travel Byrds, you'll be able to reap the benefits that the professional traveler has to earn! Our partners will typically offer you perks such as late check outs, free upgrades, or complimentary amenities!
Your Travel Advisor can have groceries, beer, wine, or liquor waiting in your condo/villa/house, so you don’t have to worry about a thing when you arrive. Why spend precious vacation time at the grocery store?
Ok, they’re not actually going to do your laundry, but they can arrange for it to be done. Why pack for a two week trip and lug around all of those suitcases when you can travel light and have fresh clothes waiting for you everyday?
If you want to find the best secluded beaches and snorkeling spots, you’ve got to go with a local. Luckily for you, your Travel Advisor has all of the connections to do just that. They’ll not only find you a beautiful boat to rent for the day, but they’ll also make sure it has a driver, all the equipment you need, and a fully stocked bar to ensure you enjoy every last second of your day on the water!
We can always charter a private plane, but if your budget doesn't quite allow for that type of indulgence, The Travel Byrds also book chartered flights on budget airlines. The resorts and consolidators will charter the entire flight and offer it at a fraction of the cost if you stay at one of the preferred properties. Access to these off-market packages makes all of the difference in the world when it comes to us finding you a great value!
Just tell your Travel Advisor that you’d like your trip to include special “bonding moments” and we’ll make magic (and keep it within budget!) We can arrange for a variety of fun activities so you’ll both be surprised. Candlelight dinner on the beach? Private wine tasting tour? Cheese making class? Give us as little or as much direction as you’d like and we’ll make the surprises happen!
Want to see that museum, but hate the crowds? Travel Advisors can oftentimes arrange for private tours either before the exhibit opens or after it closes. These exclusive tours are rarely available to the public and will give you more time to enjoy and truly take in the beauty before you!
Is it your significant other’s birthday? Anniversary? Or just want them to know how special they are? Your Travel Advisor can arrange to have your room decorated, gifts waiting, a cake delivered, and champagne waiting to be popped. You tell us what would make the occasion special and we’ll get to searching! (Yes, the personalized note on the stunning flower arrangement will be from you!)
If you need pet care arranged while you're away, just let your Travel Advisor know and they’ll take care of everything. They’ll research the best pet sitting services in your town, make the reservations, and update you on your beloved furry child while you’re away!
When something bad happens, there’s usually several people that need to be updated. (Both sets of parents, babysitters, bosses at work, etc.) Give your Travel Advisor a list and if something happens, they’ll take care of alerting your loved ones and making sure everyone is updated. All you have to do is focus on your recovery and getting home safely.
Need to escalate a complaint? Do you think it would help if you personally knew someone that actually worked for the resort/cruise/hotel? Guess what? Your Travel Advisor does...and if they don’t, someone in our network will know an employee personally and will be able to help escalate any issues there might be. We can get things done in a more efficient manner because of the boots on the ground network we’ve built!
Travel Insurance is NOT created equally. Did you know cruise ships won’t let you cruise if you’re 24 weeks pregnant? That’s 6 months. Most cruises are booked a year or more in advance. Did you know they will not refund you if you become pregnant and it generally is not covered by travel insurance? Did you know pandemics are not covered by travel insurance? Hurricanes either! Ask your Travel Advisor which policy will truly cover you and what your risks really are!
Your Travel Advisor can not only find the best restaurants in any town, but they can secure those hard-to-get reservations for any restaurant you desire. Just let them know early enough and you’ll be dining like a rock star in no time!
Nothing creates motivation like a stunning picture of a flawless beach and turquoise water. Give your sales team a fun goal to work for by setting up a sales incentive trip. Your Travel Advisor can walk you through the process and explain the tax implications as well as give you tips on how to truly create loyalty and motivation within your organization!
Travel Advisors don’t just book flights and hotels. We do it ALL. If you’ve got your heart set on any activity while on vacation, just let them know! We often get special discounts and access to reserved tickets, such as for Broadway shows!
If you book a cruise with The Travel Byrds and the price goes down, we will alert you and automatically reprice the cruise at the lower rate. Take those savings and head to the spa or indulge in one of the specialty restaurants! (When’s the last time someone gave you money back?!)
Want to buy someone an airline ticket, but don’t know which airline they’ll use? Just buy a gift card and they can use it for any travel they’d like, anywhere in the world! We’ll even send you a physical card that you can wrap and watch them open!
Once you’ve worked with your Travel Advisor on a few trips, they’ll know what you like and don’t like. They’ll also have all of your preferences, passport information, CC number, and rewards numbers saved in your profile. That way, when you’re ready to book your next trip, you can simply text them to pull the trigger and they’ll make it happen. No need to type in all of your information again year after year. We’ve got you!
Tell your Travel Advisor your preferred airport and they can alert you to special deals leaving your hometown! This way, you’ll know if offers are applicable to you and you’ll know you’re getting the best deal possible!
Did you remember to apply for your international visa...for your car?? Did you even know you needed a visa for a car rental? Your Travel Advisor will not only know this, but will take care of all of these details if you'd ever like to take a rental car to another country!
Ok, your Travel Advisor may be a terrible cook, but they know all of the great Chefs in the area and can arrange for them to come to your home to serve you dinner. If you have a large group, this is a great option so no one has to worry about doing dishes, grocery shopping, or special requests.
Want a massage, but your resort doesn’t have a spa? Don’t let that stop you! Your Travel Advisor can arrange to have a masseuse come to your vacation rental/condo or can book a spa close by. Treat yo’ self!
Want to be picked up by a limo with champagne? Want to drive around Hawaii in a Jeep? Have you ever driven a Hummer? A specialty ride can make all of the difference for an awesome vacation!
Most large resorts are actually part of resort chains that are owned by even larger companies. Those parent companies offer training and expert certifications. Any Travel Advisor worth their weight will have taken these classes. Because Travel Advisors are so familiar with each brand, they can quickly eliminate a handful of options in many areas and figure out which ones are a best fit for your personality and your family’s needs. Narrowing down your options will lead right to the perfect property for you!
If your vacation is between $500 and $15,000, The Travel Byrds can finance your trip so that you can pay low monthly payments instead of one large upfront deposit! Just let us know that you would like to explore this option and we'll give you all of the details!
You've probably visited some amazing places in your day, but did you get a true sense of the culture there? There's no better way to do so than to find the small local festivals and parades to see how the locals celebrate life! The Travel Byrds have contacts all over the world to make sure we know the right time to send our clients to maximize their immersion into the country they're visiting!
