When you are looking to travel for leisure, our professional staff can help make the difference between a horrible trip and a pleasurable vacation.
Depending on your destination and your travel components, there can be up to five different ways to price your vacation to guarantee that you are receiving the best possible price.
- Published Pricing: Buying each component directly from the vendor, i.e. air, car, hotel, cruise, train, event tickets, etc.
- Tour Company Pricing: Purchase package pricing from a reputable tour company that offers some or all of the components you are looking for.
- Consolidators: Purchase blocked airline space from a reputable consolidator.
- Consortium Hotel, Car and Cruise Pricing: In order to offer the best available rates, ETC Vacations belongs to two consortiums.
- A Combination of the Above.
Executive Travel has an online booking tool but when it comes to vacation travel, it is best that you have one of our Vacation Consultants check the above five pricing options to guarantee that you are receiving the best available price. We offer three different ways for you to request pricing from us.
You might think a travel agency that specializes in corporate travel would not be the right agency for arranging vacation or personal travel. Typically, that's the case, but it's not with Executive Travel Consultants. Whether you use us for business or vacation travel, you'll benefit from our unique approach to providing travel services. In the most fundamental sense, you'll gain from how we apply a commonsense-based approach to travel planning that is founded on respect. Respect for you, your travel preferences, your budget and your time. In other words, we think like you do when planning your vacation and then apply our sophisticated tools and expertise to arrange the exact kind of vacation you want that also meets your budget.
You'll benefit from using an agency with more than 16 years of paying attention to travel details. We know the airline connections that seldom connect on time as well as the hotels undergoing renovations, for instance. And we know how to use a variety of sources to find you the best airfares and rates while still providing you quality service. In fact, our average airline booking is $404, which is significantly lower than the industry norm of $462 (or our average international booking of $1,849 compared to the industry average of $3,653).
And you'll gain from the personal attention and passion for travel our in-house consultants bring to the job every day. We love to travel, so we have deep insight into arranging memorable vacations. The result? We can direct you to hidden gems other agencies will miss, whether you are looking for a quaint bed-and-breakfast or a world-class luxury resort. And we pay attention to detail so that all of your travel needs are addressed. For instance, if you're traveling abroad, we can assist you in getting a passport or visas.
Our travel planning services offer a one-stop source for finding and booking complete travel arrangements-from air travel to hotels and ground transportation-and then deliver tickets directly to you. We research and make reservations on major and non-major carriers (such as Southwest Airlines, JetBlue or SunCountry which many travel agencies refuse to book), plus offer an online reservation service you can use day or night. And when your travel plans change, we're available to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
