While there are literally hundreds of reasons to use a travel agent rather than trying to take on the time-consuming task of planning a trip/vacation, we managed to narrow the list down to five.
Here are our top five reasons to use a travel agent to plan your trip/vacation:
We're the Experts
We'll start with the most obvious reason to use a travel agent-- travel knowledge and experience. We have helped plan travel for countless vacations, destination weddings, honeymoons, and corporate trips, so we can help you navigate the process of planning your trip, arranging transportation, and can recommend attractions and activities based on our knowledge of your destination.
We Save You Time
Planning a vacation, wedding, or corporate trip can be very exciting, however, it can also be stressful. If you attempt to plan and book your trip yourself, you can expect to spend a fair amount of time researching travel and hotel websites to find the "perfect" arrangement for your trip. Why not consult with a travel agent and allow us to take the stress and extra time out of your planning?
We Give You the Best Recommendations
If we haven't personally visited your destination, we have probably scheduled a trip for a client there. Our job is to provide you with a hassle-free travel experience and also to make sure that you make the most out of your trip. We can recommend activities, attractions, and restaurants based on your traveling companions (kids, large group, etc.), leaving you free to simply enjoy your trip rather than stressing about what you'll do next.
Traveling Overseas? We Make it Easy.
Trying to plan a trip abroad by yourself can be a daunting task. A travel agent can not only help you book flights and hotels, but can also:
- Understand currency exchange rates
- Help you find emergency accommodations should a flight be canceled
- Inform you of local laws/customs to avoid any cultural/legal misunderstandings while on your trip.
Talk to a Real Person When Planning Your Trip
While the Internet has become a popular place to begin vacation planning, a real person can provide you with answers that a website can't. Have a question about a certain travel deal you saw on a website? Good luck getting in touch with a website representative when you need a quick answer. Make your life much easier by picking up the phone to call your travel agent.
