Photo of the Day

Today's photo was taken in the southernmost part of the continental U.S.A., Key West! 90 Miles To Cuba: Ernest Hemingway lived there. The Harry S. Truman Little White House is Florida's only Presidential museum. The bar/restaurant scene makes you want to sit on sand with a beer all day (and great food). Dry Tortugas National Park and the Butterfly Conservatory are beautiful. Many view Miami as "the place" in south Florida, but Key West has its own laid-back vibe that tourists appreciate. Cruising is generally the most popular way to see Key West, with many ships docking at the port throughout most of the year. Key West is also a great weekend destination for Floridians. For more information on traveling to Key West, contact Landings Travel.

What Every Consumer Should Know About Working with Professional Travel Agents

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Kathleen Sutter (941) 924-1124 ksutter@landingstravel.com   What Every Consumer Should Know About Working with Professional Travel Agents Sarasota, FL 3/18/2015 – With money increasingly tight these days, it’s imperative that when looking to take a much-needed vacation, consumers avail themselves of the services of a professional travel agent such as those found at Landings Travel of Sarasota, FL, a member of the American Society of Travel Agents. “Being a travel agent is more than just selling travel. It takes training, attention to detail and expertise to keep clients happy and coming back,” Kathleen Sutter, President, said. “Travel agents are there for their clients before, during and after the trip and when the unexpected happens. We provide value, expertise, convenience and personal service to our customers and understand that travel planning isn’t just about places, it’s about people. “There is no doubt that today’s travelers have more options than ever before; from destinations, packages and pricing to booking methods and itineraries. But the most important decision a traveler can make is selecting the right travel agent, such as a professional travel agent with Landings Travel,” added Sutter. Here are just a few reasons to use a professional travel agent: Customer advocacy: If you have a problem with a particular part of your travel experience, the agent is there to act on your behalf to see that restitution is made. ASTA, for example, is the only travel industry association aggressively fighting to improve the travel experience, and air transportation in particular, for all consumers, not just those with access to the Internet. Expert guidance: Travel agents, unlike instructions on a Web page, are experts in understanding and deciphering the myriad of travel information and codes out there. It's what they've been trained to do and they do it every day. Personalized service: Instead of an impersonal voice thousand of miles away, travel agents are you neighbors. They know what you want and what you value in your travel experience. Professional advice: Travel agents are there to make sure you get where you want to go, when you want to go and for the lowest price. Time: Instead of checking a long list of travel Web pages, which only provide rates and fares for the companies that have contracted with them, why not go straight to the source? A travel agent has all the information at their fingertips, saving you a few hours in front of a computer screen. Unbiased information: Agents work for their clients, not for a travel supplier. It makes sense that a happy customer will be a repeat customer. Landings Travel has been in business for over 30 years and specializes in luxury travel. Landings Travel's affiliation with the luxury travel consortium, Virtuoso, represents decades of professional experience, worldwide connections and product, lifestyle and destination expertise. ###

To pack or not to pack?

  That is what Shakespeare said, right? Well maybe not. But, for many, deciding what to pack can be very dramatic! Check out these tips from http://www.travelsense.org/tips/packingtips.cfm: PACKING LIST - MAKE A PLAN AND STICK TO IT! Like an architect planning a building, so must you plan the contents of your suitcase by creating a packing list. A packing list eliminates the panic of last-second packing, serves as a handy guide for repacking at the end of the trip, and can be beneficial in the unfortunate event of lost or stolen luggage. When planning your wardrobe, consider the events you will participate in both day and night and write down a possible outfit for each activity. Crosscheck this packing list to determine if one piece can cover multiple occasions. Pick clothes that coordinate well together, based around complimentary colors. Check the weather forecast of the destination and plan accordingly. Also, be sure to know the local traditions, where a t-shirt for dinner could be a serious blunder, or bare shoulders may bar your entrance into such places as St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. For almost all outdoor activities, take pieces that can be layered. Forget dress clothes for every occasion. The world at large has relaxed its dress code, showing almost universal leniency to tourists. Dark colors - a black dress or blue jacket - will get you through most dinners and plays. PACKING TIPS : TO PACK OR NOT TO PACK? THAT IS THE QUESTION! Now that the wardrobe is thoroughly planned, stick with it. When packing, lay out the items you intend to take and reexamine your packing list. If possible, weed out single-use items and extras. Set aside the pieces you intend to bring and ensure that they are clean and ready to be packed. Contact your travel agent about the hotel's in-room amenities - such as a hair dryer, an iron and board, soap, shampoo etc. - so you'll know what to leave behind. Jewelry - don't take what you don't want to lose, and leave behind the flashy pieces that could attract thieves. Keep makeup to a minimum to save space, and leave the perfume behind when scented lotions will work just as well. When it comes to the question of toiletries, travel kits are always the answer. Having a travel kit perpetually stocked in a waterproof case will save in packing time before the trip and aggravation after arrival. Most personal toiletry items come in inexpensive travel sizes, so purchase these whenever you see them so as not to arrive with a half-empty bottle of your favorite hair gel. And don't fill bottles up to the very top, for pressure inside the plane may force the contents to expand and overflow. With each item you intend to bring, visualize how to make it smaller, like photocopying certain pages and maps from the guidebook instead of bringing the entire book. Streamline your daily habits. Bring only one bottle of all-purpose lotion instead of multiple lotions for hands, face and body. Choose a regular toothbrush or razor over electric models. Film and other accessories can be purchased globally and often easily, so save packing room by leaving them behind. Create an in-trip adventure and discover more about the area by shopping for a local brand of deodorant or lotion. When it comes to incidentals, a few items will go a long way. Important items to bring include a first-aid kit, a tin of aspirin, sunscreen and a small bottle of Woolite for emergency, in-room laundering if needed. Also, a Swiss army knife will amaze you with its handiness, whether peeling fruit or uncorking a wine bottle. Remember - it's not allowed on the plane, so pack it in your checked luggage. Once your travel kit is complete, be sure to pack it in your carry-on bag to avoid a mess in your checked luggage and have on hand during the flight. THE ART OF PACKING Now you know what to bring, so let the packing begin. Iron everything before placing it in the suitcase. If it goes in crisp and clean, odds are more in its favor of coming out the same. Button all buttons and zip all zippers. Learn to fold. Practice folding like they do in clothing stores - they use that method for a reason. The better the fold, the fewer the creases. All garments can be folded in many different ways - T-shirts, jeans, skirts and sports coats can be rolled up and strategically positioned (i.e. stuffed) in a duffel bag or travel pack. The interlocking method of folding clothes is ideal for suitcases. Overlap two pieces of clothing flat and then fold them into each other so that each piece cushions the other to aid in defying wrinkles. Placing a piece of tissue paper between each layer of clothing will also help prevent wrinkling. If using the fold and stack method, try to think chronologically, placing the items to be worn first on the top. This will prevent rooting around the suitcase for a specific item while disrupting the rest. Always pack tightly. Packing loosely wastes precious space and causes clothes to wrinkle. Eliminate wasted space, such as the insides of shoes, which are perfect for socks or underwear. Always carry travel documents, medication, jewelry, traveler's checks, keys and other valuables in your carry-on luggage. Items such as these should never be packed in checked luggage. Label each piece of luggage, both inside and out, with your name and telephone number, but not your home address. If an address is needed, then put your office's. And remove old claim checks to avoid confusion. Unpack as completely as possible as soon as you get to the hotel to prevent further wrinkles. When repacking, remember that balled-up, dirty laundry takes more space than carefully folded clothes, so repack your used clothing identically to your original packing method. If you visit TravelSense.org, you can also create a personalized packing list depending on number of travelers, days you will be gone, and the destination you are visiting. And always remember, Landings Travel is here to help if you have any questions about whether you need to bring something or not. Peace of Mind. Worldwide.

Personal Travel Planning

Personal Travel Planning A travel consultant can do something that an online agency can never do well: make a recommendation. An online site can offer choices, but only a human travel consultant can factor in both client knowledge and professional product knowledge to arrive at the perfect recommendation. That is personal travel planning. I recently received an email from a gentleman asking why he should use a travel agent when he can book everything online himself. Here was my reply: "Well Jim, I welcome your question. Yes you could book online and many people do, however the one thing you can't get from the Internet that you can get from me is expert professional knowledge, and Insider Access to better value. I am a personal solution provider when travel plans change, even unexpectedly. I can save you valuable time and I am a trusted resource that can exceed your travel goals. You cannot Google ‘good customer service’. Working with me it is all about you. I start by getting to know you and your preferences, something the Internet cannot do. I'm able to offer my clients access, amenities, experiences, and upgrades that you cannot get from the Internet. To sum it all up Jim, there's simply no substitute for my expert advice and personal service!"
