Let’s be honest, there are thousands of websites out there where you can book your vacation. So why would you call a travel agent to have them do it? Doesn’t cost it you more? Both great questions.
First off, no it does not cost you more to work with a travel agent. Many times, you end up spending less or at least getting a better value. As an agent, it’s my job to match the type of vacation, destination and activities to your needs and wants. With that, the value of the trip becomes more important than the cost of the trip. It’s your vacation time and you want to make the best of it.
A travel agent has resources you may not have. Most of all, time. You can sit there and go from website to website and 3 hours later you haven’t eaten, the sun has gone down and it’s time for bed. As an agent, I have the knowledge and experience to narrow my search options and make the process more efficient. This allows you to not need a vacation from planning your vacation.
These are just a few of the reasons to use a travel agent. So, next time you are planning your vacation whether it’s a weekend getaway, a cruise or a 2-week trip through Europe. Think travel agent.

I have a passion for travel and believe travel is about experiences. Experiences create memories and are the stories we tell to friends and family - even with a little fudging on the facts.
