How is the session held?
Ideally you should speak with your Travel Planning expert directly. This is the best way to get the most out of the session. Being able to hear the nuances in voices, hear the triggers and explore deeper into reactions is best handled when you are actually speaking.
Telephone Conference - Video tele-conferencing - Live on-line Conferencing
If it’s difficult to get the everyone together at the same time for a conference, then you can work through e-mail. Keep in mind that much can be lost when working like this. Using this method, it will take more time for each party to receive and impart all of the important information.
This method is best used for repeat customers. If you know your Travel Consultant well and have booked with them before, they will have good insight already about your style and what you like. You can get down to particulars faster.
Keep in mind though, every trip is different and people change. So, don’t just assume your travel specialist will know everything just because you have worked with them before.
This is a slower process and typically things are presented and reviewed in stages. You can expect more alterations and modifications to itineraries.
I was skeptical about a creative planning session but once we did one I understood why Pamala holds them - from that one session she creates the most exceptional journeys .

Pamala really listens and from one session she knew who we were and all about what we wanted right down to the way we want our trips to unfold..

I had never heard of a creative planning session for a trip. That session made all the difference in our trips. We know now why Celebration Escapes is so successful.
