8 Reasons to Cruise With An Agent

8 Reasons to Cruise With An Agent

Last Updated on June 22, 2020 by Amanda Stancati

This week’s blog is focused on some great reasons to cruise, so let’s get started!

Cruise ships are an affordable way to visit multiple locations on a single trip. They are also great for people who are adventure seekers that take advantage of opportunities to try new things. Why stay in one destination when you can sail to as many as you want? From someone who has never been on a ship to the most experienced seafarer, there are so many reasons to cruise that differentiate the experience from an all-inclusive vacation.

There are multiple styles of cruises and experiences. There are cruises to sun destinations, European river cruises, and culturally-themed cruises focusing on things like music, food, and history for more experienced cruisers. They can range from warm Caribbean cruises with multiple beach visits to crisp Alaskan cruises with breathtaking views.

Sounds overwhelming? It’s not. One of the benefits of booking with an experienced travel agent is the peace of mind that comes with knowing all your concerns are taken care of. When you book with us here at tripcentral.ca, you can bet that our agents have been there, or we can get you in touch with another agent who has.

Here are some reasons to cruise with tripcentral.ca:

1. Guaranteed Lowest Prices

Cruises are a great way to get value for your money. Some cruises include your meals and non-alcoholic beverages, and while others may include gratuities in their price, every cruise is different. Be sure to consult your travel agent to find what’s right for you so you can budget more effectively.

While there are many great prices online, some savings can go unnoticed. When you book with an agent, you ensure that you are getting the most from your experience.  Don’t forget to ask about additional savings like past passenger, Canadian resident, Military rates and more.

2. Canadian Prices

Some sites will post US prices and we understand this can be confusing. We take care of the conversion from US prices to Canadian dollars in our cruise grid so that you can make a fair comparison among cruise line pricing.*

* Prices are based on Double Occupancy

3. All Taxes Are Included

The price we list is the price it is. No hidden costs, so you can budget for the cruise you want.*

* Disney cruises currently do not include taxes.
* Prices are based on Double Occupancy

Choose one of many great cruise lines for your next cruise vacation.

4. Ease Of Use

You can view up to 14 cruise lines at once, comparing prices across the 12 month calendar so you can pick what best fits your schedule and budget.  We want to help you save time and money, so all cruise prices will be laid out clearly on one page.

5. Flights Are Simple

In just one click, we search all nearby airports to find flights with the best prices, times, and value. You don’t have to search flights individually and plan around the cruising schedule, our options incorporate airport to port travel times. And our agents will save you peace of mind every step of the way. This is another reason to cruise with tripcentral.ca!

6. TICO Protected

When you book a cruise with a TICO (Travel Industry Council of Ontario) certified travel agency, you are protected by the regulations outlined in the act. Some cruise sites are owned and operated in the US and do not need to provide the same protection when you book your travel from an agency rooted in Ontario. Most people don’t consider the reasons to cruise with a TICO certified site.

Choose one of our cruise lines and book your cruise with tripcentral.ca, where we offer easy, stress-free planning.

7. An Agent Who Has Been There

Not only do we have a vast collection of photos and videos on our site to help you select the perfect cruise, we also have the greatest resource of all: agents who have been there. These are real people, with hobbies and interests just like you. They have sailed the itineraries and experienced the ship to the fullest. You can read as many reviews as you would like, but nothing compares to a face-to-face consultation with a cruise expert. There is no better reason to cruise with tripcentral.ca than the expert advice of our agents.

8. Hold A Cabin

Most cruise lines will allow you to hold a cabin at no cost.  If you are still unsure about whether or not you want to book your cruise, or if you found something that sounds great but you want to talk to someone to get some more information this is a valuable option. We understand that it’s a busy world out there and that your money matters.

* Final price is located on the last page and can change based on options selected.
