There is a lot that goes into planning and booking a vacation. If you have ever worried about making your connecting flight, choosing the right accommodation, if the cruise you chose is the best choice, or whether it’s the right time of year to travel, then a travel agent might be worth a second thought.
Nowadays, everything is accessible and available, especially on the Web. But, is it really? Many websites claim that by booking with them, you are saving money. However, most of the time this is far from the truth.
When it comes to planning a vacation, it’s easy to think that you are an excellent planner. After all, you are the only one who knows exactly what you want to do, see, and experience. So, you research different destinations and book a short vacation for you to enjoy. You’ve chosen accommodations, flights, tours, etc. and everything seems as if it’s good to go. However, after you arrive to your destinations, you have minor flare ups and you’re stuck stressing about your next move.
Let’s be honest for a second…in this moment, you’d rather have a full-time travel agent at your disposal. Why? A full-time travel agent is trained to handle not only the planning part of a vacation, but also any minor inconvenience that may come up. They are available for you to call, text, or email them at any given moment in the case of any inconvenience. This way, you can continue indulging in your fruity cocktail on the beach knowing you are being fully taken care of.
Are you still not convinced that travel agents are the answer to all of your travel needs? Here is a list of top 5 benefits of booking with a travel agent:
1. MONEY SAVING
One of the most common misconceptions is that booking with a travel agent will cost you more. However, travel agents can actually make you save money because they have access to every deal and promotion on the market and can help you choose the best one. This will not only save you money, but you will also get more for your money.
Travel agents are there for you before, during, and after your trip. They are the most trusted and reliable assistance when it comes to planning and organizing your next vacation. Every complaint or problem that my come up, they are ready to jump in and help turn your inconveniences around. For instance, imagine you are caught in the middle of a snowstorm on your vacation in Canada, a travel agent will give assist you at any time of the day to organize new travel arrangements.
3. ADDED VALUE
Travel agents have exclusive access to every perk and benefit on the market, some of which you don’t know exist. They have your best interests in mind while planning every detail of your vacation. Cruises and airlines, however, have their own interests that benefit them more than you. Instead, travel agents will provide options and expert advice on what suits their clients best in every aspect. Also, keep in mind that some experiences and tours are available only through a travel agent. Furthermore, agents will offer unique perks (e.g. TLN Amenities) that a cruise line will not. Don’t believe us, ask any travel agent!
Another great benefit is all the time you save by choosing a travel agent to plan your vacation. Spending the long hours researching vacation deals on your computer often leads to frustration and no results. Travel agents are experienced in most parts of the world and can offer first-hand knowledge on popular destinations. They can take care of everything you might need to meet all of your requests. As a result, you are stress free and saving precious hours!
5. TAILOR MADE EXPERIENCE
Travel agents are professionals when it comes to personalizing each vacation. You are guaranteed to have each experience, accommodation, and tour tailored to meet your individual needs and create your ideal vacation. This is all thanks to their inside knowledge, experience, and contacts. They know exactly what you will get and can help you enjoy a stress-free vacation.
