Why You Need a Travel Specialist

In this age of our do it yourself society, many vacationers ask, "Why do I need a travel agent?" After all, aren't we bombarded with TV commercials from large internet travel providers showing how we can plan our own vacations as easy as clicking a button! The travel agent's best weapon against these mass market sellers is the Expedia commercial showing a young woman dreaming of an exotic getaway with accommodations that include mosquito netting, and then her imagination starts to work overtime and she is horrified by the image of waking up in the middle of the night surrounded by bugs! And that is exactly my point. A professional travel specialist can assure that the vacation of your dreams won't be a nightmare.

    "Hawaii's Most Enticing Island," was bought for a mere $1.1 million in 1922 by Jim Dole's Pineapple Company. But less costly pineapple production in Asia brought an end to the Dole era. In 1985 the Dole Company sold the island to David Murdock. His vision was to create two of the most exclusive resorts in the world.
