Sadly, the internet right now is one big cautionary tale about the dangers of booking travel online to get a “deal.” If you with book with a Verified Travel Advisor, we can find good value, but with suppliers that won’t leave you in a lurch, and someone to call if you need an advocate before during and after your travel.
Sure, you can book your vacation on your own terms since we have so many options nowadays with the internet. You can compare multiple websites for flights, hotels, Airbnb, and fun activities that are location specific to your destination.
But…you can run into some issues that you may not even think about (COVID-19 for example).
With everyday life madness, just the thought of planning of trip can sound like a lot of work and may discourage you from actually booking a vacation with your friends or family.
Do you really understand why you should book your vacation with a travel agent?
Here are three quick things that you may not have thought about when it comes to booking travel arrangements and why hiring a travel agent will be beneficial for you.
Reason #1. Travel Agents will read all of the FINE little print for your flight and hotel reservations
Travel Agents know when you are supposed to check-in for your flight so you can get the best seat possible without any extra fees, be at the airport with enough time to get through security, check-in and checkout times of the hotel, and other small print fees that you might miss out on.
A travel agent will give you all the important details that you must know, so you know when and where you have to be. All you have to do is focus on getting there on time.
Reason #2. Travel Agents know what to do if you miss your flight or connecting flight
Sometimes there are things that you can’t just control such as weather delays or traffic that can cause you to miss a flight. Don’t get stuck at the airport or worse pay MORE to change your flight to help you get where you need to be. I can help rearrange flights if this happens to you, so you don’t miss any more time of your precious vacation time.
Reason #3. Travel Agents will buy trip protection for your trip
If you aren’t able to make it for whatever reason since you are booking months in advance, a travel agent will make sure that you get a full refund. This is the beauty of trip protection because again you can’t control life and things happen. Plans change and that’s okay. A travel agent will help you get your money back.
Those are the things that a true travel agent professional handle for the traveler.
Professional travel agents do all the heavy lifting. We help take the stress away by planning, organizing, comparing prices for flights and hotel accommodations, and booking your trip for you. All you have to worry about is getting to your final destination to enjoy yourself!
Leave the world behind, relax, and create new memories with those who matter most to you that you will cherish forever. Always book with a trusted Travel Agent.
