Planning a vacation is HARD. The internet is a wonderful place of information but I think most of you will agree with me in that there’s just way too much information. It’s never in one place and travel sites never reveal all of the secrets and need-to-knows. That’s why you end up researching days upon days with much frustration and not get very far.
So what if I told you that you could work with a real expert that can personalize your trip, do it at no extra cost, and also be on call when you’re on vacation as well? It’s the idea of being able to work with someone online at your convenience to find the right match of destination, dates, and budget and get it all done without a headache. This is where Avoya Travel comes in.
Why Is Trip Planning A Pain
I’ll try not to beat a dead horse here, and you know I’ve written about this topic in the past but I think this deserves a bit of attention here.
I remember recently planning for my honeymoon trip to South Africa and during the process thinking to myself, “I am so confused right now. I’m not even sure where to start”. Luckily I had a personal friend that knew the ins and outs of Cape Town and Johannesburg, that was able to explain it to me but even then, I wasn’t too confident that what I was putting together was going to be optimal or whether I was missing something. There was always that nagging feeling that I needed to do more research but at some point you have to tell yourself to stop and just book it.
And then I think about my parents. They’re currently planning a big road trip across the country this summer and need to plan it all out. They aren’t as computer savvy as I am so my Dad actually borrowed a bunch of books from the library and grabbed itineraries from local tour companies. I swear that my Dad has spent a good 2-3 months figuring out which cities and towns to stay in. My Mom confided me in the other day and told me “I don’t know how you do this. I didn’t think planning a trip would be this much work.”
The project manager in me loves doing this but I recognize that building spreadsheets and detailed plans just isn’t everyone’s thing. I’m not saying it’s not fun to do but sometimes I wish it were a lot easier. When I distill down that uncertain feeling I get when I plan my trips, it really comes down to FOMO. It’s that wisdom of an expert that I wish I could talk to and that yearning to just have someone tell me what the best way to plan my vacation.
If you think about it, that’s why we do all that Googling. While we’d like to think we’re fiercely independent, we’re at the end of the day, looking for someone to tell us what to do and where to go.
