Picture this: It was a typical workweek morning. I was easing into my day, checking my email, and sipping my 2nd (or maybe 3rd) cup of coffee.
The phone rang and it was one of my honeymoon couples who just read a news headline that freaked them out.
I was caught off guard. I hadn’t even heard of the incident, but I couldn’t let my clients know that, after all… I’m the expert, I’m the travel advisor, this is my career. 😨
Navigating Unexpected Challenges in Honeymoon Travel Planning
How about this one – your honeymoon couple calls you up asking about a certain experience/activity/tour that you never even heard of.
Or, they send you a link to the honeymoon package that they earned, and you dropped the ball and didn’t follow the terms and conditions for them to receive it. Thankfully, this one never happened to me! Dodged a bullet there! 😅
Next up, the phone rings, and your honeymoon couple is panicking because of a hurricane heading to their destination.
Things happen, and some of them are outside our control, but being the one to make the call is so much better than being the one to receive the call.
Honeymoon travel agent, can I share a few tips with you to help you be the expert and be worth every penny that your honeymoon couple pays to work with you?
Tips for Selling Honeymoons
