Torly Travels vs. Travel Agent (A PSA)

The question I get asked most often is “Why should we use your service and not just use a travel agent?”  Today we will talk about what makes Torly Travels different.

Torly Travels specializes in providing a boutique experience that is tailored directly to you.  The first point of contact begins with a conversation about your goals and travel style. We have found that the biggest point of contention on trips is when one person expects to do certain activities that their travel companions do not think will be fun.  Managing expectations is the key.   So, we dig a little deeper to find out about the travel style of the entire travel party – whether it be kids or other adults.  To accomplish this, we provide each traveler with a questionnaire so we can get an idea of everyone’s expectations.  We have separate questionnaires made for kids and for adults!
Sample Questions

After several conversations coupled with the results of our questionnaire, we are ready to curate the best trip possible.    We take everything we have learned about your travel style and begin to plan daily activities, meals, accommodations and flights that will best suit your needs.  We don’t rely on commissions from 3rd parties as we believe that will restrict our recommendations.  We use a combination of our own extensive travel experience and our expertise in combing through the noise on the internet.  We understand that there is an overwhelming amount of information relating to travel out there.  And it takes hours to break it all down and decipher what fits for you. This is where we are happiest!  Curating the perfect experience tailored specifically to your tastes.

While we can certainly handle flights and hotels, some customers decide to book flights and hotels themselves (or through a travel agent!) and just use us to plan their daily activities.  This is the “sweet spot” of our expertise.    How many trips have you worked hard to plan, only to arrive at your destination and have everyone look at you each morning and say “What are we going to do today?” If that feeling takes away from the enjoyment of your vacation, you need the services of Torly Travels!
