2022 is approaching us fast, and according to a new report from the World Travel & Tourism Council, the U.S. travel sector is anticipating a 28.4% bump in travel.
If you want a smooth and stress-free trip, look no further than a baggage claim at Yeager Airport (CRW). There you will find Independent Travel Advisor Carie Hamm. The best part: her services are completely FREE. She’s busy but always happy to help.
“They get a one-on-one planner, all the time, 24-7, for no cost,” said Carie.
Most travelers may assume it costs more to use a travel advisor, but that’s not the case with Carie. Since vendors compensate her, there are no fees for you when you book through her service. In addition, with Carie, you will have access to concierge-style services for free.
“Anyone who books through my service, I’m there to hold your hand from start to finish and the next trip,” said Carie.
HOW IT WORKS
No matter what your needs are, whether it’s an early check-in, hitting up hot spots, excursions, or accommodations, give those details to Carie, who will put together a convenient plan with no stone unturned. When you book with her services, she will monitor clients’ packages for discounts and the best pricing until travel time.
“We are alerted of promotions and offers frequently and can monitor your vacation for the absolute best pricing! So you can be stress-free, knowing someone is watching out for the best pricing on your behalf!”
WHERE CAN YOU GO?
While Disney Resorts are Carie’s bread and butter, she helps her clients with domestic and international travel. She’s helped her clients book trips to Iceland, Scotland, Sandal resorts, and many Disney trips to Florida or California. So if you want to go somewhere, chances are Carie has already been there ( or will go there for research purposes) to make sure her expertise is at your fingertips. Carie says she wants to make sure she can provide her clients with all the vital information about their desired destination.
“There are a few logistic things. For example, you consider dining reservations and transportation to and from the resort with Disney. Maybe some schedule itinerary things. With Universal, the same. Also, I do Sandals all-inclusive in Mexico. So we do all the logistical things, making sure right now how important it is to know the requirements to get in and out of the country.”
Whether it’s all-inclusive, family, or adult, only Carie can send you anywhere, saying she has a magic wand she is very protective of, mainly if she is booking you a Disney vacation.
“There are a lot of blogs and websites that tell you this is the way it is. That may not necessarily be the case when you’re not on the ground there. I like to go every couple of weeks, so I know what’s going on. If something isn’t functioning at this time or they changed a procedure. I don’t want my clients confused and not knowing what is happening. So I take that very seriously.”
HOW TO START PLANNING YOUR NEXT TRIP WITH CARIE
If you’re at CRW, you can schedule to meet with Carie in person at the welcome desk in baggage claim on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 – 2:30.
