by Oct 30, 2017

In this modern era, where the entire world is at your fingertips…it might seem counter intuitive to use a travel agent. But just like technology, the role that travel agents play in your travel has evolved and expanded too. Travel planning is an industry that specializes in a personalized and concierge-like approach! So why should you use a travel agent? I’m glad you asked!

This is their passion! Travel agents are passionate about exploring the world and are typically very well rounded travelers themselves. They work in an industry that allows them to freely explore their passion for travel and to help others do the same by planning vacations. You will likely see your travel agent on trips pretty often, while it looks like it is all fun and games, travel agents spend their trips gathering information and learning all that they can to better serve their clients!

Travel agents spend countless hours researching and training on lots of different destinations, suppliers, and types of travel. Through this research they are able to assist you with booking and planning for ALL the reasons you travel. It doesn’t matter if it is a family vacation, honeymoon, ecotourism, group travel, or for business…your travel agent is trained to assist you with all your travel needs. Their extensive travel knowledge saves you the time and stress of researching every single little detail when planning your trip!

They help you with the little things! Not sure what to pack, wear, eat…not problem! Travel agents can provide advice from their personal experience and research to ensure that you are prepared for your vacation!

You get more for your money. Because travel agents are engrossed in the industry they know a good deal with they see it and can help you take advantage of discounts and promotions as they are released! They can give advice on the best options for traveling to your destination based on time of year and by comparing travel suppliers.

You are working with a real person, who has made it their profession to help you plan and book a vacation that is perfect for YOU. Travel agents not only help you with reservations and bookings, but they take the time to get to know you and your family. This personalized touch creates a relationship that allows them to recommend destinations and experiences that are uniquely suited to your personal preferences.
