Mystery Trip Surprise Vacations – is it for you?

June 28, 2019




Let’s talk Mystery Trip!

Are you like me and LOVE surprises? Well if you do, then a Mystery Trip might be for you! As a travel agent, I plan trips for people all the time whether it’s a honeymoon, family trip, or the worthy bucket-list trip! People like you are reaching out to travel agents like us for help in planning the trip of a lifetime. They know an expert travel agent will take care of every detail! By doing this, it saves you not only a massive amount of time but money too! However, we, as travel agents have noticed some people want to keep the details a surprise! A new emerging travel trend for 2019 is to leave ALL to a professional!

Who is a Mystery Trip for? Anyone okay with giving up some control! It works well for people who are burnt-out on “all the planning” or too busy to wrap their head around choosing the perfect destination. A Surprise Trip often is ideal for newlyweds who are thrilled by the unknown. A Mystery Trip doesn’t mean giving up all control. At The Travel Mechanic, we stay within the parameters discuss with our clients.

Additionally, Mystery Trips are not just for newlyweds. Retiree couples too who have traveled the globe are intrigued by an expert travel specialist offering to surprise them with a unique trip! Alternatively, maybe it’s simply this person: “I’m looking for adventure, a good deal, and – I trust you. Surprise me”![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″ offset=”vc_col-xs-8″][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

So this is how a Mystery Trip works:

We set up a consultation where we spend time talking about previous trips, what aspects made those trips good or bad, what you liked about them, and what your hobbies are. We consider your favorite foods and dining preferences, and a few other likes and wants. All these answers go into helping plan a fantastic vacation! After the initial consultation, we get to work behind the scenes making this dream Mystery Trip a reality! An initial deposit is usually needed to secure the trip and then at final payment time we do the BIG REVEAL!

The ultimate thrill – A Mystery Trip:

Some couples want the best of both worlds; a surprise trip at an inexpensive all-inclusive location! So in this specific case, you pick the destination (Mexico, Dominican Republic, or Jamaica) and we won’t reveal where you are going until 24 hours before the trip! Our professional expertise allows us to pass over incredible savings and then you get to live it up at a fabulous all-inclusive of 4.5 stars+ resort!
