REASONS TO USE A TRAVEL AGENT as reprinted from TravelMarket
Travel agents offer guidance. It’s
world out there, and
even seasoned travelers are a little nervous. Whether they’re facing
terrorism or just getting bumped from an airplane, travelers are more
inclined to talk through their concerns, and get unbiased information,
from a live agent. The tips we can give, the advice, those things
you just can’t get booking online.
Travel agents give you more for your money. Agents

promotions travelers do not. From cruise lines to hotels to tours,
suppliers know their top travel agents and slip them upgrades, bonuses,
special offers and early entrance tickets that make their customers
feel special. And research shows they save customers an average $452
Travelers are frustrated with online travel agencies. Consumers
wising up. Online
travel agencies (OTAs) often advertise one price and then tack on fees
and other hidden charges, or restrictions and blackout dates in the
fine print. And there is so much information out there – so many brands
and new products – that the research is overwhelming. Among travelers
who regularly seek information from an OTA when planning a vacation,
only 13% were typically booking their reservations on OTA sites even in
2015, according to MMGY Global, compared to 36% in 2014.

assist customers with basic site navigation, they offer little further
support. Travel agents help during the booking process and stay with
you to make sure all goes right. And when there is a problem, they are
there to intervene—whether it’s a supplier who doesn’t deliver or an
emergency that requires getting you out of harm’s way quickly. And with
an agent, you have someone advocating for you!

destination or segment of travel, like LGBT or destination weddings.
And they spend a little time getting to know the customer, so they can
make recommendations tailored to what you want to do.
Travel agents’ customer base is skewing toward Millennials. The
of travelers under
the age of 35 who prefer to book their vacations through a travel agent
increased 50% between 2014 and 2015, reports MMGY Global. They don’t
have time to wade through all the options, and they understand there is
only one chance to make a vacation perfect. Just as they hire an expert
to do their taxes or maintain their garden, they want a knowledgeable
professional to help them make this most important decision.
