4 Reasons to Outsource Travel Planning


Travel can be a headache. By the time you book your flight, hotel, car/cab, shuttle, and other reservations, you’re exhausted. And you haven’t even left yet!

There’s one easy way to make travel, well, easy: have an administrator make the arrangements for you. People may feel reluctant to have someone else manage travel arrangements, but it’s one of the Top 10 Things to Outsource to a Virtual Assistant, according to Entrepreneur Magazine.

Here are four reasons why travel planning made that list:

  1. Your time is too valuable. Sure, you could click all over the Internet looking for the best deal on a flight, hotel, car, and more. You could even work with a travel agent, but then there’s a lot of back and forth about things. Your time is better spent working, earning the dollars to pay for this trip, or, if it’s a business trip, preparing for the meetings you expect when you get there. Every hour you spend studying online deals and entering rewards numbers is an hour you could have spent doing something else.

  2. Your trip will feel like a breeze. Managing all the arrangements can be tedious. Outsource the logistical parts of travel and have someone else figure it all out for you.

  3. Get help with international travel. Traveling overseas means making sure you have the right visas, the correct immunizations, and more. Let someone else check through the lists and get what you need.

  4. Smile upon arrival. Once you arrive at your destination, you have to lug your luggage, hail a cab, and figure out where you’re going. If you outsource the task, your administrator can make sure a car service is arranged and waiting for you, your hotel is in the perfect location for your meeting and is expecting you, and you have all the details right there in your phone. You won’t have to rummage through papers or join the line for cabs.
