Do I still need a travel agent

There are few things in this world that are more fun than traveling. Yet there are a number of people who don’t realize that one of the best ways to go about making the most of their travel time and money is to go first to a travel agent. A travel agent is an expert in the complicated details of arranging travel … figuring out routes and itineraries, reservations and costs.

Experienced travelers use a travel agent’s many services because he can get confirmed hotel accommodations and other reservations in advance-so important in countries where space is limited. Furthermore, it’s such a convenience to have all your travel-details handled for you.

And remember, it often saves you time and money when you utilize the services of a travel agent. Travel agents sell on a commission basis, paid by the companies they are authorized to represent. Since they represent a wide variety of transportation, hotel and tour organizations in various price brackets, they can give you advice on filling your individual need’s and wishes. A travel agent knows best how to keep your travel costs down.

Often the travel agent can save you money by safeguarding you against mistakes and blunders that are not only embarrassing but costly. Also he often knows of travel, conducted and independent tours or sightseeing bargains that would otherwise not be known to you, or that are purchasable here, but not in the countries you plan to visit.


The trip you are making can be a high point in your life. Let your travel agent show you how.
