Reasons For Using A Travel Agent

Today's travel agencies are well-armed with advanced tools, suppliers, wholesalers, etc. Despite all of the opportunities for the potential traveler to bypass agents and book online, if your travel agent is good, then he or she really can save you some money. And time. And stress.

True Case: Only The Name Has Been Changed.

Jack wanted a fantastic vacation at a fantastic price for he and his wife. Web savvy, he had spent hours searching for the vacation he wanted. And he found one - a featured resort on TravelFrom.com.

Jack was excited to learn that the resort offered various packages that included several add-on items with the purchase of a 7-night stay. Now he was more than convinced-- This was the vacation he had been looking for!

So our agent went to work and built the entire trip: Airfare, rental car, the room, and all the add-ons. Then Jack was presented with a total price that was surprisingly low.

Low as it was, however, Jack was convinced that he could do better. So he went back out to the web in search of lower airfare. And indeed he found it-- $20 per seat lower than what our agent had found for him. And he booked it himself.

So what happened?

  • On the way there...
  • Jack's flight arrived at the airport very late at night
  • The resort is one and one-half hours from the airport
  • By the time he landed, the car rental company was closed for the night

  • On the way home...
  • His flight left very early in the morning
  • He had to leave the resort at 3:00 am to catch his flight
  • The car rental company was not open yet

Physical Results:

  • Jack had to spend the first night near the airport
  • Jack had to spend the last night near the airport
  • Jack had to rent his car from a more expensive company
  • Jack's 7-night stay at the resort was now a 5-night stay
  • Because his stay was now only 5 nights, it no longer qualified for the add-ons.

Monetary Results:

  • Jack saved $40 on the airfare by booking it himself
  • Jack spent an additional $240 on the two nights near the airport, the rental car,
    and the package add-ons

Net Result:

Jack's vacation was $200 more than it would have been
if he had just booked the package that our agent had built.

..................................................................................................................

Case #2: You're Not Covered!

Suppose you go online and book everything yourself-- the airfare, the rental car, the resort, etc. Fantastic. It's all paid for, and you're ready to go. Then your travel documents arrive, and you discover that you had typed in the wrong flight dates. Let's face it-- we're all human, and things like this can happen, and have happened. If this has ever happened to you, then you know what just happened-- you just bought a vacation that you can't take. Either that or you'll have to pay some pretty hefty fees to get the flights changed.

If your travel agent were to make the same mistake, then his or her Errors and Omissions Insurance would cover any change fees. The net effect to you is Zero. It's all taken care of.

..................................................................................................................

Case #3: You're On Your Own!

Let's return to the above example, but this time we'll assume that everything is in sync-- all the dates are correct, all the times are correct, and your itinerary is perfect.

What would you do if the hotel has lost your reservation? What would you do if the car rental agency has run out of cars? Specifically, who are you going to call? Who's going to help you? The hotel? The car rental company? This is going to sound terrible, but you're just one person. Losing you as a guest or a customer is not a significant event. And if you go so far as to threaten them, now you've given them even more reason to send you on your way. Basically, you're on your own. About all you can do is hit the streets and hope that something comes up... or pay again for something you've already paid for...

If you had booked through a travel agent, on the other hand, then all you have to do is make one, simple phone call. And everything will be taken care of. Will the hotel assist your agent? Will the car rental company assist your agent? Of course they will, because now they're dealing with someone who has the potential to send either hundreds of guests, or no guests at all. From a purely business perspective, a travel agency can send thousands of dollars (or even tens of thousands of dollars), or no dollars at all...

..................................................................................................................

Case #4: You're Not Getting Paid For Your Time!

If you don't know who the "public" tour operators are (those that allow you, the traveler, to book your vacation right on their web sites), then you already know that it can take hours, days, or even weeks, to find what you're looking for.

Even if you do know who the public tour operators are, you can still spend an inordinate number of hours looking and comparing. And, if you still need to call them anyway (because their web site just doesn't answer the questions that you might have), well-- good luck! Every time you call, you're going to end up talking to someone different, which means that every time you call, you're going to have to start all over again...

Well, if you truly don't have anything better to do with your time, then we really don't have an argument to support our point. But if you do have better things to do with your time, then by all means, give this work to someone who's going to get paid to do it!

Perhaps the best argument is this:

Did you know that if you book a vacation on the web site of a public tour operator, then you're paying for a commission? One that doesn't go anywhere?

It's true. Commissions are built into those prices, and you're going to pay them, regardless of who actually books the vacation. As a result, it costs you nothing to ask an agent to book it for you! And when he or she does, then he or she will be paid. In addition, the more that agent books, the more the tour operator will give that agent a raise.

..................................................................................................................

Case #5: You Don't Need The Additional Stress!

If you have an agent that you trust, then you don't need to spend what little free time you have scouring the web and trying to piece everything together-- flights, cars, rooms, etc (remember Jack?). In addition, your agent might be working with transfer and car rental companies that you simply don't have access to, and in many cases, even hotels and airlines that you don't have access to. At the very least, your agent has access to consolidators and suppliers that you don't have access to.

So you've got your flights, you've got your rental car, and you've got your room. Now what about tours? Diving? Snorkeling? Deep sea fishing? Remote islands? Ruins? Do you know who to contact? Your travel agent probably does. Oh, you might be able to arrange a few of these things on a tour operator's web site, and end up in a group that gets herded around like a bunch of cattle, on their schedule, but is this what you really want? Only your travel agent has the resources necessary to build a tour that is customized to your specific wants, needs and desires...

..................................................................................................................

Conclusion:

Up until now we've been discussing travel agents in general, but how do you go about
finding one that's not only trustworthy, but is also good at what they do?
