What MWT Is
A Travel Consultant
As a travel consultant, My World Travel (MWT) gets to know each traveler’s budget and travel preferences, and then takes on the weight of travel research and planning. The end product is an organized, interactive itinerary for your trip. From any point in your planning process, MWT can take over and help provide the efficient, organized planning tools you need. Do you need an itinerary crafted for your trip and want to do almost zero work? That’s our specialty! Do you have ideas but not enough time to book everything yourself? Let us help! Do you just need a list of amazing things to experience in your destination city? No problem. We are at your service.
A project fee will be mutually agreed upon before beginning the planning process, based around our Planning Packages – 50% of the fee will be due upon confirmation of travel planning, and the balance will be due by your departure date. **COVID Clause: While we navigate this hectic time of travel uncertainty, the payment structure will be slightly altered in the case of postponement or cancellation. Upon confirming services, 50% will still be taken. If we have to postpone, I will take 25% at time of postponement, and the remaining 25% prior to the new travel time. If we have to cancel, I will take care of all cancellations and then take the remaining 50% of the planning fee.
Our favorite tasks as travel consultants are to build culturally-immersive experiences anywhere around the globe. We love to research properties that are locally owned, family run, and have a mission that supports the local economy. We also love building relationships with local tour guides who have a passion for their culture and a desire to tell the story! Whether you’d like a fully relaxing vacation or fully planned adventure, we will do our best to connect with the local companies that do it best.
To My World Travel, travel is a form of conflict resolution. The more people you meet and the more cultures you experience, the better. We also know travel is an important change of pace from everyday life and that everyone’s style of relaxation and unplugging is different. We’re here to help you find your favorite method.
What MWT Is Not
A Travel “Agency”
My World Travel is an independently owned, certified LLC. We are not part of a travel agency franchise. Classic travel agencies provide public services on behalf of certain suppliers such as attractions, airlines, car rental agencies, cruise lines, etc. MWT does not act on behalf of such suppliers, but includes them in the research and options.
We do not receive special “packages” for vacations (but we can help you find those, if desired!) and we are not tied to certain partnerships within the travel industry. No set commissions, no nothin’. There are many benefits to booking with a travel agency, however, including agency-issued trip insurance and one-stop-shop trips.
My World Travel will empower you to smartly travel abroad. However, the suggestions we make for travel are simply educated suggestions based on hundreds of clients’ feedback, industry news, and personal experiences. All suggestions should be thoroughly reviewed by the traveler and any actions/bookings made and adherence to specific government regulations are at the will of the traveler.
