The (almost) Venetian Sojourn. What it means to have a Personal Travel Manager

The (almost) Venetian Sojourn. What it means to have a Personal Travel Manager

As a Personal Travel Manager, my friends and family know that I am always on-call and at the ready to assist my clients. Regardless of how streamlined I have their travel arrangements, the Universe is never boring and life can throw you a curveball ...

I distinctly remember one Saturday night, I was in a taxi heading out to catch up with friends, when my phone rang. On the other end of the line was one of my clients who had been enjoying an Italian (now Venetian) sojourn with his wife. It seems they had missed their flight out of Venice by 2 hours!

The confusion arose because they had been using an earlier version of their itinerary, not the final one I had sent with their documentation. The husband was anxious, he needed to be back in Melbourne for an important meeting in 48 hours, so taking in the sites of Venice for an extra day was not an option.

Turning my taxi around, I returned home, fired up my laptop and got to work, running through my head a number of solutions and scenarios to get this gentleman home for his business obligations. Over the next hour, I managed to get them booked out of Milan and on a train to meet that departure in about 6 hours time.  He made it to his meeting on time and was a very relieved, grateful, happy chappy. 

That’s the beauty of being a Personal Travel Manager; it’s like having an on-call travel assistant at your fingertips, there to help you not only plan the trip of a lifetime but also be there when you’re in a pickle. I see it as a partnership ... a “team”, if you will!
