Why Use a Travel Agent?

You are probably wondering what the beneifts are to using a travel agent...especially with so much information now available online. I often wondered the same thing...but my research uncovered some very eye-opening facts that I did not know.

Let me share them with you:

  • It does not cost you more - Suppliers (hotels, condos, cruise lines, tour operators, and car rental companies) do not charge you less if you book your own trip.

    In fact, most packages that you find on sites such as Travelocity and Expedia can be found cheaper through other suppliers. Why? Because those sites only list packages from suppiers that pay to be listed.

    You see, there is no one place to find all suppliers and all options. Here is a perfect example...Southwest Airlines will not show up on Expedia because they do not work together.

  • Many suppliers do not deal with the general public.
  • Someone who is good and knows their stuff can save you time and money by finding you the best product for the best price.

I discovered that there really is a need and a tremendous upside for using a travel agent...a good one that is.
