In this day and age of advancing technology, it’s very common for travelers to independently book and plan their own trips. We feel it’s important to remind today’s nomads why using a travel agent or planner still remains beneficial, and often results in a better, more special travel experience!
Our top five reasons to use an agent are:
Using an agent saves you both time and money. Using an agent promises for a well-valued vacation without having to commit personal time to researching and shopping around.
2. EXCLUSIVE RATES/DEALS
Agents have access to special deals and rates, often times exclusively. From hotels, to all-inclusive resort stays, to cruise lines, most are contracted to provide cheaper rates and special promotions to agencies.
3. CUSTOMIZED EXPERIENCES
Having an agent that gets to know you, your travel companions, and your likes and dislikes, allows for them to provide the precise experience that fits your needs. A good travel planner can decipher the wide differences and varieties of vacation options and choose the one that best suits you, while also throwing in their own personalized touches.
Agents can offer you tips and advice based on personal experience, and the experiences of other clients within their network. Having an agent means meaningful guidance that you cannot simply find on TripAdvisor or similar resources.
5. STRESS FREE VACATIONS
Your agent is here to complete all the proper preparation, research, and physical booking that comes with planning a vacation. A great agent will go above and beyond to ensure your trip is perfect. Travel can be expensive, an agent is here to make sure you’re happy with every penny you spent. Should an issue arise, they’re also your advocate in remedying any situation. Your agent willingly takes on your stress and worry for you so you can enjoy every second of your getaway!
P.S. For many agencies (including us), it costs the same anyway! You may as well have someone go through all the legwork for you!
