10 Reasons Travel Agents
Are Better Than the Internet

(From the Huffington Post)

While you might put travel agent right up there with VCR repair man and video store clerk on the list of jobs that have gone the way of the Yellow Pages, there's a reason you still see them wedged into strip malls between your dry cleaner and the new VaporZone.

See those reasons!

Anderson Travel has EXPANDED!

We have joined forces with Magnolia Travel of Seattle - adding more experience and talent to our exceptional staff.

"Thanks for mailing the ticket info to me. I really appreciate the service your company offers. I'm not a frequent traveler, so it is comforting to know that I can call upon you for advice and support."

Supper Bowl What a year for travel!

What a wild winter throughout the US! -Mild, record breaking high temps in the Pacific NW and record breaking snowfall in the East. Crazy!

Then there was the Super Bowl frenzy and a game ending that will go into sports history.

From the travel standpoint - our Personal Travel Planning services are very popular. We are busier than ever!

You may have seen some of the articles about the "rebound" of the travel agent. Great news, except that Anderson Travel never went away! We have been "making vacation dreams a reality" for nearly 40 years!

President Marti Anderson started her first travel agent position in Pullman on April 1st, 1975. And April 1st, 1993 is the date she purchased Knightly Travel, rebranding as Anderson Travel Planners. Combining Anderson Travel's combined agent experience, we total over 200 years of travel planning experience! We love working with our clients to build lasting vacation memories.

River Cruise

Travel to Cuba

Since the US has relaxed travel and trade regulations with Cuba we have had numerous inquiries from clients wishing to travel to Cuba before it changes. Previously, US citizen were only allowed to travel on educational or humanitarian visa. With the changes we will finally be able to go as tourists, with more opportunities to explore and experience Cuba. Although many details still have to be settled, reservations are being accepted now. If you think you might want to go to Cuba in the next year or so, let us know and we will keep you apprised as more information become available.

River cruises provide wonderful trip ideas!

Some newer cruise options include additions to river destinations. River cruising continues to be the fastest growing travel experience. The Rhine, Main, Moselle, and Danube are the most popular European Rivers. Can you picture yourself cruising all the way from the North Sea to the Black Sea? Here is a sample of 1 of the most popular itineraries - Castles Along the Rhine.

Other popular options in Europe include the Seine, Rhone, Saone, Garone, Gironde and Dordogne Rivers of France, the Volga, Neva and Svir Rivers of Russia, Portugal's Douro, and Italy's Po River. AmaWaterways is offering up to $1000.00 per person off on many 2015 departures.

For those looking for something more exotic - the rivers of Cambodia and Myanmar, China, and India await. Not all river cruise lines are the same - call us. We will help match you up with the best river cruise for you. As these ships are small - less than 200 passengers on most vessels - space sells out quickly. Bookings are now being accepted through 2017.

Mexico is HOT HOT HOT

Mexico Resorts are welcoming guests with terrific savings and resort credits. Delta Airline has increased the number of flights to sunny resort destinations are offering some tremendous specials when combined with Delta Vacation Hotel packages. If you have a small group interested in a resort destination? With a minimum of 3 rooms, you can qualify for additional savings! This works especially well for destination weddings. As an example, round trip airfare from Seattle to Puerto Vallarta, 7 nights all inclusive 3 ½ star accommodations, and round trip transfers starts at $1098.50 per person. - YES! That IS ALL INCLUSIVE!

We meet or beat the best prices on line - and exceed online service!

Remember - before you book any vacation on line, call or email our office. With our experience, vendor relations, and consumer affiliations our pricing is at least comparable with the on-line sites (including Costco). We often have access to additional amenities, group discounts (without traveling in a group), not to mention the benefit of working with a local business - someone you can sit down with, ask questions of, someone who will advise you of what works for you personally. Someone that will advise of terms and conditions and what documents are required for your destination. Someone who will be there for you through all phases from planning to homecoming.
