5 reasons to work with a Hawaii Honeymoon Travel Agent
So you are planning a Hawaii honeymoon and considering booking with a Hawaii honeymoon travel agent. Chances are, you haven’t booked with a Travel Agent before, and you’re looking for reasons to book with a Travel Agent. Well, let me introduce myself.
My name is Amy, and I’ve been a Hawaii honeymoon Travel Agent for several years. Before that, I worked in the wedding industry for over 10 years as a wedding photographer. Not only do I know Hawaii, but I also know the wedding industry! Today, I am sharing 5 reasons to work with a Hawaii Honeymoon Travel Agent.
1. Travel is more complicated than ever
I didn’t have to tell you this, did I? Travel is more complicated than ever. Although many destinations worldwide are dropping restrictions, Hawaii is one of the last states to do so. Traveling to Hawaii isn’t necessarily difficult, but it’s easier when you have someone to walk you through the process!
It’s more than that, though; many tour operators, restaurants, and activities that existed pre-2020 aren’t even around anymore. Many rules have changed, and there are many new players in the game. How do you know what to choose? How do you know where to go? That’s where a Hawaii Honeymoon Travel Agent comes in.
2. Travel Advisors have your back
This is potentially the most important reason to work with a Hawaii honeymoon travel agent. If you’re working with a Travel Advisor, we have. your back! Issue with a flight? No problem, we’re there to help. Get the wrong hotel room? No problem, we’re here to help.
Excursion transportation didn’t pick you up? We’re on it! And so, so much more along the way. If you book through a large online booking site with a call center, you won’t have that personalized level of service. Sure, you’ll have a number to call if there is a problem, but did you know the waits are often 5-6 hours+? That likely isn’t how you want to spend your honeymoon.
No, not all Hawaii honeymoons and vacations have problems, but if there is one, you can rest assured that a Hawaii honeymoon travel agent will have your back. Problems can arise during travel, even small ones, and it’s so much easier to have a real person to call that will have your back.
As a Hawaii Travel Agent, I take it a step further and often work with suppliers who are also available as a point of contact if I am traveling myself and unavailable. I want your problem to be fixed immediately should one arise!
Lastly, did you know that several of the “big guys” online turned off their phones for days at a time when all travel was being canceled? Do you know who worked countless hours helping clients cancel, rebook, change schedules, and more in 2020 while working for free? I did!
3. Hawaii Specialists know more than you do
Like advisors is any other industry, Travel Advisors know more than you do. If you are booking a Hawaii honeymoon and you’ve never visited Hawaii before, don’t listen to the advice of your great Aunt, who visited Hawaii in 1985. Instead, listen to a Hawaii Travel Advisor who books Hawaii honeymoons every day for a living!
Working with a Hawaii Travel Agent will ensure that you have the latest updates for resorts, activities, and more. Things have changed, especially in the last few years! A Hawaii Travel Agent for honeymoons will know which resorts are doing construction, which activities have been getting so-so reviews recently, and many things you would not know outside of the industry.
4. Travel Agents deliver more value
I’m often asked if working with a Travel Agent saves money. The answer is: sometimes. While yes, it is true that Travel Agents sometimes have access to deals that are not available to the public, the truth is that most of the time, we are booking the exact pricing that you would find online.
However, Travel Agents deliver more value in almost every situation. As a Hawaii destination specialist, I know it is a good deal or not. See something that seems to be good to be true? Well, you know the saying, it probably is. Travel Advisors can guide you through what is worth it vs. what is not?
Do you need to reserve a cabana by the pool, or are free ones readily available?
Is a popular tour worth it, or a waste of time and money?
Is it better to have a car or a Jeep in Maui?
A Hawaii Honeymoon Travel Advisor can answer all of these questions, plus so much more.
5. A Hawaii. honeymoon travel agent can save you time!
You have a wedding to plan, and as someone who has been in the wedding industry for more than a decade, I know how much work that is! Let a Hawaii Honeymoon Travel Agent take off some stress by taking care of the honeymoon details.
Does this mean you don’t get a say in your honeymoon planning? Absolutely not! However, it does mean that you can have someone else take care of all of the details, and you can be as involved or uninvolved as you’d like.
Some of my clients plan every detail right along with me but enjoy working with me for my opinions or just knowing I will have their back if there is a problem. Some of my clients are hands-off and only make decisions when necessary, letting me handle most of the trip. Is there a right way and a wrong way? NO. How you plan your Hawaii honeymoon is 100% up to you.
Are you planning a honeymoon but not 100% set on where you’d like to go? Don’t worry; I am here to help! I am a Hawaii Honeymoon Travel agent, but I also book honeymoons in other warm, sunny beach destinations like Mexico and the Caribbean. Check out some of my other honeymoon travel ideas:

Hi Amy. My family is wanting to go to Hawaii in December 2022, around the 28th for about 10 days. I am afraid I am over my head. I am very thorough when it comes to planning our trips in the past. My husband & I are retired. We have a 20 yr old college student studying premed. We are planning our trip during Christmas break. I am currently researching for our trip. But I feel I need to be nailing down the flight & lodging. Can you help me?
Yes, of course! You’ll just need to fill out my contact form and I will be in touch. You are correct, it is time to nail down your flights and lodging NOW or prices will go up. https://amyfillinger.com/contact
