“Do people still use travel agents these days”? YES — smart travelers use a travel agent. While most of us could cut & color our own hair, change our own oil, or do our own taxes, the majority of us DON’T do those things. We hire a professional, realizing that the outcome is always better when someone well qualified and trained for the job performs the service at hand. The same is true of working with a professional travel advisor! We help you cut through the clutter of endless online options. We listen to your vacation wants and wishes and work with you to be sure you have YOUR best vacation ever.
The best benefit of booking your vacation with a travel agent is that you have an advocate in your corner should something go wrong, and someone who knows you & your vacation plans firsthand. No waiting on hold for a call-center representative who knows you by confirmation number only — you have access to one person who knows you by name and truly cares about your vacation experience! If something goes wrong before or during your vacation, you have someone ready to help, without ever having to wait on hold. We take the time to know your vacation dreams and work hard to make them come true!
