So often we throw off the idea of booking with an agent because, let’s be real, you think it’s going to cost more and you can get it cheaper if you do it yourself… Sometimes that may be the case BUT do you read the fine print ? the t’s and c’s? what you’re actually getting? or in the knowing if there are changes to your booking ? (too often we fall into that hole and get caught)
Well, here’s why we think you should book with a travel agent…
1.Travel Agents Save You Time
We (travel agents) take the guesswork out of researching and examining the many options, saving you the much needed time and the hassles that often come with vacation planning. With years of experience and knowledge about destinations, transportation options and vendors, an agent can eliminate hours of online research time.
2.Travel Agents Take the Stress Out of Planning
What’s better than, having a stress free holiday ? Having someone stress for YOU! The best thing is that agents help you as the clients with all types of situation and guess what,they’re aware of details you might not think of when planning on your own. Their knowledge and experience also gives them the foresight to prevent potential problems.
3.We can handle the unexpected..
Between weather delays, natural disasters, flight cancellations, lost luggage and much more, a lot can happen on holiday and who better to help you than your travel agent. I mean the benefit of using one is they act as the traveller’s advocate in the event something goes wrong, helping navigate the challenge of making any necessary itinerary changes that would best suit you.
4.A Travel Agent Can Help You Navigate Changing Travel Conditions
Keeping up with the details of planning a trip is challenging enough. Now you face pandemic-related restrictions that change frequently and vary across borders, as well as hassles with refunds and penalties for cancellations.
We hope we have helped you understand or give enough reason to use a travel agent the next time you book. It saves YOU time and stress.
