WHY SANTA BARBARA TRAVEL?
First and foremost Santa Barbara Travel recognizes what it does best – customer service. In an era where travel is a commodity the defining difference between companies is the quality of its service and the satisfaction of its customers. That’s why for the last 20 years Santa Barbara Travel has been voted the area’s best travel agency. It is why American Express honored the company with it Excellence Award and recognized by the Pacific Coast Business Times as the top family owned business.
Why do companies across the country and around the world choose to work with Santa Barbara Travel when they could work with any number of other agencies or book online? The simple answer is Santa Barbara Travel provides better service, has more experience and knowledge, meets their needs, and has earned their trust.
What does a top ten tennis player who lives in Europe, a world famous musician who lives in New Orleans, a renowned actor from London, and a road warrior business traveler from New Jersey have in common? The answer – they all rely on Santa Barbara Travel to organize their complex trips.
Since 1947, Santa Barbara Travel has invested in its staff. Not a week goes by that travel advisors don’t engage in some form of training – computer training, destination training, product training – to enhance their professional skills. This ongoing investment in professional development sets the company apart. Learning and improvement is a continuous process. That’s why every advisor, every year, goes on a company paid educational travel program to a destination that they specialize in.
A commitment from its advisors to deliver professional advice to customers that creates a unique and valuable experience is at the core of what Santa Barbara Travel does day-in and day-out, 7 days a week, 365 days a year since 1947.
The company has sustained a clear advantage over time as the best source of travel planning in its marketplace. And, their customers benefit from the diverse range of services that Santa Barbara Travel offers – cruise planning, tour design, group travel coordination, entertainment travel, corporate travel management, school and athletic team travel, to name a few. The institutional knowledge that the company has is very unique.
Why Santa Barbara Travel? Because we care about our clients, we take the time and effort to invest in our staff, so that they can provide the professional services that our clients deserve.
