One thing that keeps people from using travel agents is that they think travel agents are going to make their trips more expensive. In actuality, travel agents can save you money. Today let’s look at some ways how.
- I know I am always saying this, but travel agents make money when we book hotels, car rentals, cruises, theme parks, etc. A lot of us do not charge anything over and above that.
- The big thing travel agents save you is time. Planning a trip takes a lot of time. With me, all that you will need is to e-mail me back and forth several times so that I can figure out exactly what you want. I will take care of the rest.
- We travel agents will also help you figure out the details for your trip. Are you going to want travel insurance? Will you need to take medical precautions for where you are going? What is is the best way to get there? What kinds of things will you do once you are there? A travel agent is going to be able to help you with all of these details.
- No one knows everything about a certain destination. Isn’t that one of the reasons we travel? But knowing about travel is a travel agent’s job. We also know other travel agents who can help walk us through everything.
- We will also know the best times for you to travel. We will help you through every step of this process to make sure that your trip is the best that it can be.
I would love to know your thoughts on any of this.
