They don’t charge you fees.
Well, some do, but we don’t. It’s a little-known fact that travel agents actually earn their money from commissions paid by the vendor or supplier you end up booking with. This means booking through a travel agent is no extra cost to you, but you will be helping someone make money for being an amazing resource for you.
You won’t overpay.
If anything, you’ll pay less than if you were booking on your own. This is because travel agents have the inside scoop, so they’re always finding the best deals possible.
They can get you extra perks.
Since they do this all the time, travel agents know a thing or two about scoring VIP experiences or extra perks, at no additional charge.
They’ll save you time (and eliminate frustration).
This might not be a monetary save, but minimizing the amount of time it takes to book a vacation is one of the top reasons why enlisting the expertise of a travel agent rules so much. No need to waste hours trying to figure out accommodations and itineraries. Your travel agent has got it all covered, and probably with a deal, too!
They’ll avoid common mistakes.
Since you’re not likely planning trips every day, it can be easy to make mistakes. And mistakes can cost you money. A travel agent won’t have this issue, and their knowledge will likely save you money.
They can find packages and group rates.
A travel agent will be able to save you even more money by bundling flights, hotels and other aspects of your trip. Traveling with a large group? They’ll get you even more savings, while also ensuring you’re all on the same flights—and sitting together, too!
With all those savings that come along with using a travel agent, imagine all the extraordinary places you’ll go!
