Travel agents work with hotels, resorts, airlines, tour operators, cruise lines, travel insurance companies and many more businesses that touch a traveler. They spend a considerable amount of time building relationships and expertise with various travel suppliers so that they can help plan that perfect vacation or business trip for their client.
In turn the suppliers are more willing to work with an agent, and ultimately the client, to try to make certain any issues or complications that may arise are resolved. Suppliers want to make sure that agents continue to send customers to their locations.
Travel agents are a client’s best safety net. If something happens before, during or after a trip, the internet can’t help you, but your travel agent can.
Travel agents may be a little more expensive, but more cost-effective both in term of time and money. A travel agent can find you the best value within your budget and many times they can offer complimentary amenities or upgrades, all because they have the benefit of working with a vetted supplier.
Most consumers don’t know that online booking engines also charge a service fee, except there is no one working on their behalf and considering their best interests. Working with a travel agent can ensure you get the best value and a wonderful experience on your trip.
