Do I Really Need A Travel Agent?
With all of the on-line options for booking travel, you might say to yourself, “Why do I need a travel agent?”. What are the benefits of booking through a travel agent? Is it cheaper to book my own vacation on-line or is it better to call a travel agent?
The benefits to booking your vacation with an experienced travel consultant are many. Here are just a few:
Travel consultants are trained experts and know how to sort through the myriad of travel information available as well as much that is not readily available to the consumer. We have more knowledge than you can find on an on-line search. We understand and work with complex travel industry codes and jargon and know how to make sense of it for our clients.
Professional travel consultants have a world of travel information at their fingertips, saving you hours of on-line research. We are a “one stop shop” and can handle every aspect of your vacation from airline tickets to lodging, ground transportation, activities, tours and much more.
BEST VALUE AND EXCLUSIVE DEALS:
Travel professionals have access to exclusive deals not available to the public and will find the best products for the best value to fit your unique vacation needs. In addition to perks and personalized touches, a travel professional provides value you cannot put a price on. We can guide you to just the right restaurant, museum or off-the-beaten-path excursion that is perfect for you!
Your professional travel consultant ensures that you get where you want to go, when you want to go and is there to provide timely, insightful professional guidance along the way. We are available to you before, during and after your trip to provide you with personal, professional guidance.
Your professional travel consultant works with you to create a personalized custom vacation experience. We know what you value and ensure that every detail of your vacation is perfectly planned to exceed your expectations. We work for you—not for any one travel supplier. We work with thousands of expert suppliers around the world and our relationships allow us to provide you with the absolute best service anywhere you choose to spend your vacation. Unlike “order takers” at an on-line call center, we know our products and our suppliers. We do the work for you and filter your options, providing only the recommendations that make the most sense for you.
If you experience a problem while traveling, we act on your behalf as your personal advocate. Plus, as part of large influential travel consortia, we can accomplish more, better and faster, than any consumer alone.
These are just a few reasons to always work with a professional travel agent when booking a vacation. An experienced travel consultant can help turn your travel dreams into lifetime memories!
