One comment we often get is "Why should I use a Travel Agent to book my vacation when I can go online and book it myself." Let me ask you a few questions....
When you need to sell your home do you use a Realtor or do you do it yourself??
When you want a professional portrait done do you call a Photographer or do you do it yourself??
When your pipes leak do you call a Plumber or do you do it yourself??
When you need something in your home rewired do you use an Electrician or do you do it yourself?
When your car needs repairs do you go to the Mechanic or do you do it yourself?
Likely the answer is NO to all of the above so why gamble on a vacation that will likely costs you thousands of dollars! Travel Agents are experts in their field - they know how to navigate airfare, which hotels are reputable and best times to go certain places to start. They have been doing this every day often for many years. The best part....they do not cost you any more money than if you book yourself! The catch...they only get paid IF you book with them and AFTER you travel.
If you are planning a vacation why not call your local Travel Agent and work with them to plan you trip. Not only will it make your trip the best it can be, it will streamline your planning and you will be supporting a local business!
