Don’t just take my word for it, here’s what recognized travel experts have to say about compelling reasons to consult a travel professional:




“Why do I still like agents? A competent travel adviser can be your greatest asset when you’re planning a trip. Good travel agents have an edge over almost any other seller of travel.
They know what you want. They speak your language. And they’re there for you when you run into trouble.”




Christopher Elliott, ombudsman,
National Geographic Traveler magazine.


“It’s clear agents can likely save travelers big money and help set a realistic itinerary. Even where they weren’t cheaper, the agents competed with what we could find on our own. And we were impressed where they did save us money, in particular with hotels.”


Jane Hodges, Wall Street Journal              




“Having a travel agent advise you is now more important than ever,” as fees, surcharges, and other travel restrictions have become more confusing for consumers. “Travel is one of the
most complicated purchases.”
