Many people think that the Travel Agent is outdated. I promise you, we aren’t! I’ve been a travel agent now for five years, working in the travel industry for about eight years. I’ve seen every experience you can think of when it comes to booking travel. I’m here to tell you, even if you don’t use a travel agent, I HIGHLY recommend never using a third party booking engine. (But really, show some travel agents some love! We want your trip to be just as memorable as you do!)
WHAT? I thought Expedia, Cheap Tickets, Priceline, Etc were all the rage? I thought they got me the best price?!
Booking travel is fun for some and a hassle for others. Maybe you’re okay with booking it yourself. That’s great. But since a travel agent is free (they only make money off commission) it is still worth your while to double check the price you got with the travel agent. Who knows, maybe he or she can get you a better deal, whether that’s an upgrade, a better price or a special add on. You’ll get something out of it and you’ll be helping a small business owner keep their business alive. A win-win for everyone!
