Costa Rica Vacation Consulting

Introducing Costa Rica Vacation Consulting

Since the first vacation I designed and managed back in early 2004 I have been doing it the same way. That is getting paid a retail rate from my customer and paying a wholesale rate to my vendors.

That’s the classic middle-man approach.

Well, that approach has fallen by the wayside these days. And it’s no wonder, the internet is the greatest middle-man eliminator ever invented.

So, I started looking for a better way a while back and I believe I’ve come up with one.

I call it Costa Rica Vacation Consulting…catchy, eh?

It works like this…

(1) I design the Costa Rica vacation of your dreams…

(2) You agree to it (we tweak it as often as needed to get to that point of agreement)…

(3) I set up all the reservations and provide you with clear instructions on paying them directly with your credit card, directly to the vendors…

(4) I serve as your in-country resource before and during the trip, should any issues arise…

(5) For all this, you pay me a consulting fee and that’s it!

Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it?

What are the advantages of doing it this way. Well, I can think of many, like…

(1) the security of being in control of how your money is spent, rather than trusting a stranger to spend it correctly for you…

(2) and in knowing exactly what you are paying for what, i.e., no hidden fees, or profit margins…

(3) the ability to time payments to your liking, rather than paying one complete upfront sum, as some components of the package can even be paid after arrival…

(4) the ability to take advantage of promotional discounts that vendors only offer on direct sales…

(5) and you still have Costa Rica Guy on the line to help make sure your Costa Rica vacation experience is outstanding!

I charge consulting fees on the following sliding scale…

-for packages with a total price not exceeding $4,000 – $400

-for packages exceeding $4,000 and less than $10,000 – $650

-for packages exceeding $10,000 – $850

Truth is I have been offering this new way for a year now to test it and get the kinks out. I’ve received some good reviews from happy customers, like Scott and Laura who said…

We decided to take a trip to Costa Rica 5 weeks before we wanted to leave. Scott and PackageCostaRica were essential in helping us to plan the perfect vacation. Whether it was customizing our vacation package (a few times), connecting us with amazing tour guides, and even providing multiple payment options, Scott was committed to helping us having a great trip. When we had a hiccup over one of our reservations, Scott was immediately available by phone to help resolve this issue — at 8:30 am. From the beginning, we were impressed with Scott’s customer service and his overall desire for us to have the perfect Costa Rican experience. And we did!

Thank you, Scott!

Of course, you can also still book your trip the old fashioned way. So, the above is just an innovative way to improve my service offering for my customers.
