In the age of online booking sites, using a travel agent may feel like going the way of the dinosaur. But agents are more useful than simply selling trips and cruises. Many agents still provide services or have knowledge that you just can’t get online and sometimes,
especially in times of crisis, working with a real live person is just plain superior.
Here are the 6 reasons why you need a travel agent
The best travel agents have unique access to benefits that can save you a lot of money and provide you with a better experience
free room upgrades, spa credits, food and beverage credits are just a few of the things that agents can get, that you can’t.
Add in hard-to-get restaurant reservations, exclusive or priority access to attractions, added amenities,
and you will have a lot more value for your travel money.
2. He/She will guide you
Simply put, they know more than you. They can give you insider tips and advice, using their personal experience to guide your vacation decisions in a way that provides you with the best vacation possible for you and your hard-earned investment. They have access to the personal feedback from hundreds of clients, and their own personal travel agent network, to provide insights you can’t get on online sites.
3. They Are Influential
Many travel agents develop personal relationships with individuals at the companies they sell. They leverage these relationships to get you
things you can’t get on your own. That “sold out” room or the connecting rooms you want for your extended family trip when the
online sites say they aren’t available. They also have exclusive entrée to experiences you might not know are available to you.
4. They Are Problem Solvers
In addition to getting you more on any particular trip, they can step in and fix things when your trip goes awry.
The average consumer books one or two trips per year, typically with different travel suppliers, so they have little or no leverage when things go wrong.
The travel agent is constantly selling a particular supplier and has the leverage to fix things, even when the supplier isn’t directly at fault.
Travel suppliers value the travel agent’s business much more than any individual traveler.
They will step up to make things right or simply to make sure that traveler, and their travel agent, are happy.
Instead of searching blindly on the Internet for hours, days, or even weeks depending on the complexity of the travel plans you can have an
expert do the research for you, with your personal needs in mind. They do it for every component of the trip and very often do it at no cost to you.
6. They Are Saviors
If anything should go wrong during your trip, you can rely on them to assist you. A travel agent will suggest and arrange alternate travel arrangements, help you to deal with any travel emergency you may have, and put you in touch with the right local people to answer your needs.
There are other reasons to consider booking with a travel agent. If you’re planning a multi-stop trip with layovers and connecting flights,
travel agents might find combinations you wouldn’t. And if you’re planning a trip that involves a big group of people, tours and sightseeing,
or might involve visas, inoculation or complicated passport requirements, a travel agent might be your best bet.
And if something goes wrong, there’s an emergency, or you need to cancel, travel agents are a safety net.
Finally, most travel agents won’t charge you for their work so it literally won’t cost you anything to give them a shot.
