Dear Dave,
How well do you know your clients? Even if your clients are coming in to book a quick sun getaway, asking them one magical question, may open up a whole new relationship with them?
Forbidden City, Beijing
My travel agent knows that I love exploring World Heritage Sites, world wonders and checking off new countries.
I was lucky to check several bucket list things off my list last month.
Sandy in Hautulco

Sandy's travel agent knows she loves the simple things in life....hot weather, blue clear water, good food and great friends with amazing new experiences!

Terracotta Warriors, Xi'an, China

So, what is that magical question?  Simply ask "WHAT ARE YOUR TRAVEL GOALS?"  I promise that if you ask this simple sentence of all of your clients, you'll have some great conversations, that will lead to more bookings!

Happy selling!
Dave Emery
