Why should anyone use a travel agent?

Nowadays the average person who books a vacation is more informed and empowered to make decisions on their travels than even 3 years ago. That trend should continue due to the wealth of information a keystroke away. Even with the oodles of data, the choices and information can seem overwhelming. How can a seemingly simple task, booking a vacation, be so cumbersome? Who has the time to weed through all of the information available and drill down to the core of the details? Travel agents have the time!

Quite often a travel agent is connected to travel suppliers such as cruise lines and resorts, and can use that connection to get the best possible value for you. In addition, travel suppliers have perks and upgrades that may not be available with the usual web search methods. It’s that connection that suppliers love. Suppliers truly value relationships with agents. Travel agents are the ones that can help fill space for the supplier and at the same time give their clients more than what they would have found for themselves.

If you ask the average person why they have a go-to doctor, or a go-to insurance agency, or a go-to dentist, they’ll give you very good reasons why that’s important to them. Trust, valuable advice, integrity, and more. It’s the ease at which a travel agent can make your life so much easier, that you should flag that person as a ‘favorite’ in your phone, e-mail, Facebook, and all the other ways you save contact information. A click away. A phone call away. A trusted travel agent is standing by to put the time into planning your dream vacation so you can spend that time doing something else that you need to do like play with your kids, take your wife to dinner, plant flowers, watch the game, and more. Happy travels!
