In the age of DIY and Google, here is why you still need a travel agent:
You’re Tired of Wasting Time:
Ever been down the overwhelming rabbit hole of researching a vacation?
Save time and go with an expert who has been trained in your destination.
You’ll cut through the junk and get what you want.
You’re Tired of the Fine Print:
I’ve seen those online deals. “$99 Flights to Europe! All inclusives At $5 A Day!”
Read closer and they aren’t what they seem. A skilled travel agent can help
you decipher the clues. Is that a direct flight, or will you have a three-leg 25
hour journey? Are transfers included? Is that resort under construction?
Is the beach filled with seaweed? Ask a travel agent and you’ll know.
You’re Tired of Buyers Remorse:
Have you ever clicked “buy now” and then immediately felt anxious? Don’t settle
for wondering if you’ve done the right thing. Travel agents have endless resources
at their fingertips to answer any question you might have. Trust me, we’ve heard it all.
Agents network and share resources. If we don’t know an answer, we will find someone who does.
I recently read a quote that I love: “What’s the difference between a travel agent
and the internet? A travel agent can talk back.” The best part of my job is asking
questions. A good travel agent won’t make blind recommendations.
A good travel agent will ask questions, dig in for detail and really understand
what works best for you and your family.
Your vacation days and travel dollars are precious, so why put your faith
in a faceless, nameless website? You deserve expert advice and value for your dollar.
Go retro and use a travel agent.
