The recent trend of online booking has made many customers opting to make their own travel arrangements. And while that option seem enticing, a travel agent will provide you with a better service that is faster and more affordable. When you plan your trip with a travel agent you will save time, money and avoid frustration! Here we explain the reasons why choosing an agent is the best choice for planning your trip: 

1. Experience : 

Travel Agents have mastered all the steps of the travel booking procedure - from the initial planning of when and where to go, which airline to deal with, to which tour operator best suits you and your lifestyle. You only have to choose the correct travel advisor that will make your experience remarkable.

2. The Travel Agent Does the Work for You : 

 Life is hectic enough as it is! Who has time to search everywhere for the best deals, reviews, make bookings for flights, hotels, tours, train reservations and travel insurance? We do! Take a load of stress off your life and let a Travel Agent do the work for you! We'll keep you in the loop during the entire process and ensure that the options we send your way meet all of your needs. 

3. We're in the Market : 

Travel Agents work within the limitations of your budget and will help you save money in any way possible. We can advise you about the best time to travel - because sometimes simply switching your dates can save you hundreds of dollars!

4. Travel Agents Know the Best Places to Visit :

 We can help you by providing candid information about the best places to visit and what to do at your desired destination, without having to examine thousands of unreliable reviews online. 

5. The Clarification of Restrictions & Fees : 

Many restrictions and fees are not apparent to the customer when they book a ticket. The online travel sites show you what you want to see, but not what is really there. Let the travel agent explain to you all the restrictions in your booking without you having to face troubles and difficulties.

6. Travel Restrictions.

The online travel sites will never inform you about the travel restrictions that may face your nationality during your trip. Many bookings are offered with many stops at several countries without any alert if you can enter these countries without any visa pre-arrangements for the transit area. On the other hand, when you consult a travel advisor you will have all the necessary information needed to avoid any difficulties and unexpected complications during your trip.

7. We Have Got Your Back When It comes to Flight Delays / Cancellations

When you book online you will certainly not have any support in case of flight cancellations or delays. Howeve, when you book through a travel agent they will help and offer you the necessary information to proceed with your flight in the best method available at that moment.

8. Travelling with a Group

Travelling in a group involves coordinating multiple services and information. That is why it is always better to make the arrangements with a travel agent. In general, all the group bookings are subject to several changes and inquiries, like the number of participants, special requests, last minute cancellations, etc. These cases are easy to handle for a travel agent who can make all the necessary modifications and plans in a professional manner at minimum cost. 

9. Travel Advice

Sometimes the traveller does not know exactly where to go, or the best season for a specific destination. When you read online reviews for a certain hotel or city you will find yourself losing time and effort. An experienced travel advisor can help you find what you are looking for and make the right decision. In addition, if you work with a specific agent, they will become familiar with your needs making it easier for them to help you choose a promotion you will enjoy.

10. Travelling for the First Time or Globally

If it is your first time travelling, certainly you will need some information and advice about the country that you are visiting in addition to travelling procedures and requirements. At the time when you travel globally or to a place you have never been to before, it is wiser to consult your travel agent and have all the required information for a safe trip. 

11. Best Prices

The best prices are not always online. Prices on international carriers can vary widely, the travel agent can keep checking frequently for the best price and routing your voyage and let you know when is the best time to buy the ticket. Let the agent do that job for you. 

12. Finding Rooms that are Unavailable Online

Online you will find that many hotels are fully booked, but in reality it is not always the case. Many properties hold some rooms in reserve while others maybe in hands of some tour operators. When you book with a travel agent they will help you with these difficulties and try to book your desired hotel.
