Garber Travel in Chestnut Hill, MA, New England’s largest travel agency, is launching a new concept in vacation travel planning for sophisticated travelers today with the opening of its new International Travel Center (ITC) in Beverly, MA.
Dewi Sri, Rice Goddess of Bali, is one of several global decorating touches in Garber Travel’s International Travel Center.
The 2,200-square-foot prototype office, the first of several planned by Garber Travel, uses an eco-friendly environment with vibrant colors, sleek furniture and a touch of African and Asian décor to create an inviting atmosphere for clients.
“Industry research has shown that brick-and-mortar travel agencies are enjoying a resurgence in popularity, particularly among upscale clients who are looking for high-quality products and a stress-free vacation,” explains Roz Garber, president and CEO. “These travelers may use the Internet for research, but they want a personal relationship with experienced travel specialists who have first-hand experience with a particular destination.”
Garber Travel’s vacation specialists average 15 years of travel planning experience. The agents’ personal travel experience gives them a significant advantage in recommending destinations, hotels and other travel services. Plus, Garber Travel can help vacationers handle contingencies while traveling with “in country” support through its affiliation with the Ensemble Travel Group.
