Sure, you can book your Essence Fest trip on your own terms, but…you can run into some issues that you may not even think about. With the everyday life madness and just the excitement about going to Essence Fest, there are things that can be missed when planning, organizing and booking a trip. Do you really understand what you are agreeing to when you are booking your trip without the help of a professional Travel Agent to assist you every step of the way? If not, here are three quick things that you may have not thought about when it comes to booking your Essence Fest travel arrangements and why you should hire a travel agent to help you get there.
1. Have you read all of the FINE little print for your flight and hotel reservations? Know when are you supposed to check-in for your flight, be at the airport, check-in and check out of the hotel, and other small print fees that you might miss out on. I understand that those are things that you aren’t even looking at because of all the excitement to go to Essence Fest and that’s okay! I will give you all the important details that you must know, so you know when and where you have to be. Just focus on getting there on time.
2. What will happen if you miss your flight or connecting flight? Sometimes there are things that you can’t just control such as weather delays or traffic that can cause you to miss a flight. Don’t get stuck at the airport or worse pay MORE to change your flight to help you get where you need to be. I can help rearrange flights if this happens to you. I want to make sure that you get to Essence Trip early so you can make the most of your trip. After all, you are in New Orleans so much to do and see!
3.Did you remember to buy trip protection for your whole trip? If you aren’t able to make it for whatever reason since you are booking months in advance, you should be able to get a refund if you purchase trip protection. Get your hard earned coin back!
