Why Use A Travel Agent?

I’ll admit, before becoming an agent myself I often wondered “Why?”.  Why use a travel agent when I’m just as capable of doing the work myself? I grew up in a house where my mom and dad were members of AAA and used to always go there to get their Trip Ticket Map before leaving or our trips.  I booked many trips as an adult on my own. I did my own research, checked multiple travel sites, called different airlines to find the best prices, and then waited to purchase when it was the BEST time to get the BEST price. It was exhausting and I found myself doing much of my research late at night when I had finally done all of my other work.

On a whim as I was planning a Disney trip (one of many), I turned to my parent’s faithful method and called AAA. I was provided a Disney specialist that walked me through the process.  She would e-mail me updates, call Disney to apply discounts to make sure I had the best price, and reminded me of important dates and benefits.  When I had a question, she was an e-mail away, and when I returned from the trip she sent me an e-mail to welcome me home.


I was hooked. The travel agent was able to focus on the behind the scenes details, while I got to focus on planning the activities and trip details. There had been no extra cost to me and if I hadn’t wanted to research I didn’t have to, because I had a great agent who could help and had access to resources I didn’t.

So, from that I realized that I wanted to be the one to help. I wanted to be the one to take the stress off of a client so that they could enjoy the trip without having to worry about the stress.

So, what are the top three reasons I believe you should you consider book through a travel agent?

  1. Save time – A travel agent will do the research for you. With basic information, a travel agent can provide multiple price quotes to ensure you get the vacation you want
  2. Save money –After lots of research a travel agent will let you know how to get the best price. And, when I find a price cheaper through a different company, I will let you know, even if it means you will not book with me.
  3. Provide research – When you aren’t sure what you want out of your trip, a travel agent will do the research for you and provide you with information on your destination, activities to do while there, and the options you have for additions to your trip to make it more memorable

Booking with a travel agent may not be right for everybody, but consider using one when you book your next trip and see if it is right for you!
