Many travelers may not realize what they are missing out on when they travel and don't use a travel agent. But what can a travel agent do that I can't do for myself? Here are just a few things that your travel agent can do for you:
Travel agents know the market and, when they listen to what you want, can to match you with a better product than you can find on the Internet.
If something goes wrong on your trip, a good travel agent will go to bat for you, no matter what or who is at fault, and try to get your vacation back on track.
Your travel agents have access to an abundance of tools that the average person is not able to use or does not know about. Sometime they can get you a better seat on an airplane, added amenities at hotels, room upgrades, event tickets, and plan activities for you.
We know your time is valuable. You shouldn't waste it searching for and comparing vacation prices. Your travel agent can do that for you. We can match you with the vacation that you actually want, not the one that you saw on television. There is a difference between travel inspiration and actual travel desires. That destinations may look good on TV but may not be ideal for you personally. Your travel agent can help you define what it is you want to get out of a vacation.
Developing a relationship with your travel agent can result in us knowing each other so well that we are able to target the right trips for you without even having a conversation. Ideally, a simple phone call or email could result in your next vacation -- already planned.
Often, travel agents can save you money based on their supplier relationships -- or at least match the price you find -- while saving you time and effort. There are also hidden savings built into trips. A travel agent will likely book transfers (transportation to and from the airport) for you, included in the price. Sometimes a package that you book yourself won't include those, making the experience appear cheaper.
There are a lot of value-adds that consumers don't even know about that can be added by a travel agent. Ever wonder why the couple in the cabin next to yours got champagne and you didn't? They probably used a travel agent.
Travel agents have inside information on the best times to go to crowded destinations and they sometimes even know what the new "it" destinations are going to be before the masses. Want to get there first? Use a travel agent.
Some tours and experiences are only available through
a travel agent. Many companies offer a lot of components and simply want to make sure a customer is right for their experience -- exotic tours, treks, private jet products are often only available through an agent.
