DIY and Travel: Why They Don’t Mix

by admin

While it might feel like you can plan your dream trip on your own, there are many benefits to using a travel agent that some people might not realize until they take the plunge. AAA Travel Agent Michelle Younis provided us with an insider’s perspective.
Time Saver
Travel agents already know the information that you’ll be researching. “We can save you time, ensure that you’re getting what you pay for, and make sure that you have all of the information you need to know about traveling to your destination,” said Younis, adding that agents often bring up important questions travelers didn’t know to ask.  
Perfect Trip
 Younis said that even while making small talk, she’s determining the perfect vacation for someone. “I want to make the best recommendation possible and give you professional advice,” she explained. “I’m going to save you time by narrowing down the options and giving you two or three choices of vacations that will fit perfectly with what you’re expecting out of your trip.”
Peace of Mind
Travel agents aren’t only with you in the planning phase, they’re there if you need them during the trip and want to continue working with you in the future. “If you have any problems or issues with your travel plans or when the unexpected happens, you have a person to call,” Younis said. “We’ll fix the problem or make sure that you’re compensated for any inconvenience you’ve incurred while traveling.” 
No Charge 
Travel agents are free. For instance, AAA only charges a service fee if you’re only booking a flight. “Whatever price you find on-line or on your own will likely be the same price we’ll give you. Sometimes our price may actually be better or there could be extra goodies included on your trip when you book with us,” Younis said.
