Top 5 Reasons to Use a Travel Agent

Want to make the most of your trip? Here's a Pro Tip: work with a pro!

These days you might think travel agents are obsolete, with the internet and many web-based suppliers offering people portals to book their own vacations. Now more than ever you need a good travel agent to guide you through the sea of travel opportunities out there for you. Here are the top 5 reasons to use a travel agent over booking on your own.

1. Save Time and Stress

It takes a lot of time to scour the internet for the perfect vacation and the best deal. Once you’ve finally narrowed down where you want to go, there is more research to do for the specific area, what you need to bring, excursions you can do, special events happening while you are there. You don’t want to miss out on anything! A travel agent will help you narrow down your search and choose the best vacation, accommodations and extras for your family. Clients often come to me overwhelmed with planning a Disneyland, Walt Disney World or Universal Parks vacation. I help them decide the which accommodations are best for their family or group and budget and I guide them through the planning process in a way that is easy to understand and low stress.

2. Travel Experts

Travel agents are travel experts. They are highly trained, well-traveled and have an extensive list of industry contacts. They have done all the research so you don’t need to and they will have some great suggestions you may never thought of.

3. Personalized Experience

You can book online through places like Expedia or Costco, but once you hit that payment button their service ends. When using a travel agent you get a more personalized experience, consider them your concierge. For my clients booking Disneyland or Walt Disney World vacations I send them easy to understand explanations of the advanced dining and FastPass+ reservation systems and remind them when they need to do this. I will even make the reservations for them if they prefer me to. I guide them through My Disney Experience and make sure all their reservations are linked. I help them plan their itinerary and even put together personalized park touring plans. You won’t get this service with Expedia or Costco!

4. Accessibility

A travel agent is your advocate and is very accessible. When you have an issue or need something, call or text me and I will take care of it immediately. You won’t be sent through a system and be put on hold for the next available agent who may or may not help you after having to explain who you are, where you are going and what the issue is.

5. More for Your Money

Travel agents have access to all the deals offered for your travel destination and some exclusive offers you won’t find online. I am always watching for new promotions and will apply them to my client’s vacations if applicable saving even more money. Expedia and Costco won’t do this for you! Plus, as I mentioned above you get personalized itinerary planning and when clients book their trips with me there is absolutely NO COST, FREE!

As a travel agent, I will guide you through the planning process and help you plan the perfect vacation for your family, group or occasion. I am very accessible and there is absolutely no pressure involved, I stay true to your budget!
