Why It Pays to Book with a Travel Agent

Small 150x150

With the introduction of the internet and online booking engines people often think that the “Travel Agent” is an occupation that no longer exists. But that is far from the truth.  Travel Agencies do exist, and Travel Agents are here to take care of your travel planning.  Here are a few reasons why you should book with a Travel Agent: 

  1. Save time. Booking a trip often proves to be an extremely stressful, grueling undertaking. You can spend hours online searching for deals on flights and hotels, bouncing from one website to another in pursuit of the perfect price. An agent can save you time by vetting thousands of flight and hotel options to find the right fare at the lowest rate. 3A-Travel does the work, and saves you time.
  1. Save money. Do you think online booking engines save you money? Well, think again.  By the time you’re finished with the “add-ons” your price is actually much higher than the “prices starting at” price.  Also, the supplier pays our commission, not you.  3A-Travel finds deals, and saves you money. 
  1. Learn what you want.  Often people don’t really know what kind of trip they want.  It’s the travel agent’s job to provide you with a number of options they think you’d enjoy. 3A-Travel will not only help you book a trip, we’ll help you build the trip.
  1. Don’t underestimate a travel agent’s extensive Rolodex. Agents may have people on the ground you can connect with, such as a local tour guide, as well as people you can reach out to if you encounter any problems. 3A-Travel connects you.
  1. Is that online supplier offering you a sweet deal?  Is that supplier legit and reputable? 3A-Travel will ensure that they are, and will also enlighten you about trip options you may not be able to find online.
  1. Have you tried calling the phone number associated with the online booking engine for more information about your trip, and actually connect to a LIVE PERSON?  Flawless travel plans lie in the details, and travel agents are experts when it comes to handling those details.  3A-Travel will answer, or seek answers to your questions, 
  1. Troubleshooting/Peace of Mind. Despite extensive travel planning, you might encounter some bumps on your trip. Having a travel agent handle them for you can make your travel experience a lot less stressful.  3A-Travel is there to help; we are your travel advocate.
