Access to travel Expertise
Travel agents know the market and, if they listen to what you want, will be able to match you with a better product than you can find on the Internet.
Travel agents have inside information on the best times to go to crowded destinations and they sometimes even know what the new “it” destinations are going to be before the masses. Want to get there first? Use a travel agent.
Your time is valuable and you shouldn’t have to spend it searching for the right vacation. A travel agent can do that for you. Travel agents can put the puzzles together for you, by making sure your ticket is booked, airport transfers are arranged, accommodation is booked, and that you have access to all activities that march your interests and budget.
We all know time is money, so why waste it researching airlines, cruise ships, hotels, and other travel suppliers when you can lean on an expert who has experienced them first-hand? While you should research which places you want to go travel, there’s no need to spend your valuable time over the tedious and less interesting details such as hotel reviews and flight options. A travel agent will be able to coordinate a million things that pertain to a good vacation including tickets, visas, money exchange, accommodation ,return transport ,activities, just to mention a few.
Saves you money
Often, travel agents can save you money based on their supplier relationships or at least match the price you find while saving you time and effort. There are also hidden savings built into trips. Travel agents will likely book transfers for you, included in the price. Sometimes a package that you book yourself won’t include those, making the experience appear cheaper.
Get special Access
Travel Agents have access to Online Travel Sites that average travellers themselves don’t have. They are much more likely to enhance your trip with some unexpected and authentic moments. It might just be a surprise bottle of champagne upon arrival at your honeymoon resort or a last-minute suite upgrade. There’s no guarantee but working with an agent ensures that you have someone looking out for you behind the scenes.
When working with a Travel Agent, the value you receive will be bigger than what you paid. Cruise lines, luxury hotels, and many resorts get the majority of their customers through Travel Agents and they reward the best ones with perks to share with you. Travel Agents consistently get access to the best rooms, upgrades, and special features that are just not available in online databases.
Travel agents have access to a variety of tools that the average consumer is not able to use or doesn’t know about. They can sometimes get you a better seat on an airplane, added amenities at hotels, room upgrades, event tickets, and plan activities for you
A Human Connection that Travels with You
Unlike an online travel engine, your Travel Agent is with you for the duration of your trip. If you run into any problems such as a last-minute flight cancellation you will have a real person to contact for assistance. Even when an unexpected obstacle is outside of their control, a trusted agent will go to bat for you and keep in communication until the situation is resolved. You’re never alone when you have a travel Agent to lean on.
