  • Squirrel on an igloo

Beware Travel Advisories

The following travel news article caused a chuckle or two upon reading. Maybe we in Canada all live in igloos and are (eat?) nuts. As the article on the absurdity of travel advisories was written five years ago, I thought the cautions may have changed; however, for the most part , they have not. 😀

About Real Travel Experts

Real Travel Experts is the product of Compass Media, a website design and online marketing company servicing the travel industry. Our clientele is a small, elite collection of travel professionals who are truly experts in their field. Some of them you may meet here on Real Travel Experts.

A Travel Blog

This website had its beginnings as The Travel Bucket travel blog which was essentially travel reviews and articles written primarily by the company’s founder, first as a personal travel blog but morphing over the years into informative articles for use by our travel agency clients. Now we hope to present and highlight, in addition to our own content, the travel blog articles, videos, travel tips,  travel reviews and radio podcasts of some of these real travel experts we represent.

The Travel Bucket may have remained just that, a travel blog website, had it not been for the casual complaint of one of our clients that he – a true travel expert in a popular destination – was competing against those who claimed they were travel experts but had no “strength to their bench”. So how was the public to know who was really an expert when anyone could call themselves such? He wished there was a place the public could go that focused only on experts.travel reviews

Our Travel Professionals

Expert is a word often thrown out there casually to give a certain cache when listing one’s credentials. You have probably seen someone who has listed he or she is a certified agent in (destination) or (travel supplier). But obtaining a piece of paper does not qualify you to be an expert. Years of experience, major accreditations from ASTA and CLIA, and firsthand knowledge combined with that piece of paper make a travel agent into a travel expert, who can provide solid advice and travel tips you can rely on.

Real Travel Experts is very pleased to highlight these professionals in their field of travel and pass along their hard earned knowledge, travel tips and travel reviews to you. We hope you will appreciate them sharing, and reciprocate by engaging their services the next time you travel.
