Booking a holiday is getting more complex all the time. We have a glut of information at our fingertips that can leave us swamped with details, yet still asking essential questions about whether a getaway suits our family.
Our #beABTAsmart Twitter chat is all about how to travel with confidence. We want to hear what helps you travel with confidence, what you want from a holiday booking and your tips for travelling with children and babies.
The chat is sponsored by ABTA, the leading association of travel agents and tour operators, which provides that ability to travel with confidence. Booking with an ABTA member means everything from:
- Getting the ABTA agent’s expertise on things you won’t find on a resort’s official website – Is the kiddie pool well-shaded? Is the vibe family-friendly or chat-all-night? With ABTA agents, you won’t have to guess
- Knowing you’re getting what you booked – for example, a sea-view room that has an actually view of the water!
- Peace of mind coping with all the details – your ABTA agent can keep track of the necessary paperwork, visas you need, and so on so you’re not the one struggling to keep a mental list
- The knowledge that your package or flight-plus bookings are financially protected
- Post-holiday complaints support – because life is not perfect and it’s good to have someone help
