Hire A Travel Agent

Why Should I Hire A Travel Agent?

Can’t I book my own travel online?

HireTravelAgent-ProbusWorldTravelIn today’s world, more and more people are booking their own travel online, because they think they can get better deals, they think it’s quicker, and they feel more in control. Which leads them to believe that travel agents must be a thing of the past.

But there is nothing further from the truth…Travel Agents are alive and well and helping people everywhere plan the vacations of their dreams.

Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.” – Pablo Picasso

That’s the difference between using a computer or using a Travel Agent…a computer can give you answers, but a Travel Agent will give you both answers and service!

We love to give personal service; We are the warm hands you hold from the beginning to the end of your trip.” – Sharon Emerson

Travel Agents exist, and they exist for a great purpose…

I’m not slamming online travel companies, but ask yourself this, has Travelocity, Expedia or Hotwire ever called you to…

  • TouristSites-ProbusWorldTravelSee how your last trip went
  • Give you ideas on sights or events to see once you have reached your destination
  • Shared personal experiences they’ve had to make your trip even better
  • Explain or offer travel insurance
  • See how your vacation preparations are going
  • Help get travel papers in order
  • Share information on what to avoid or what to do while in a port
  • Let you know about a great deal that they wanted to pass on to you

How can a Travel Agent Make Your Vacation Better?

Being there for you, at the other end of the phone is our special brand of service, it’s something that the online companies can’t offer.

  1. An online travel company can’t save you the time that a Travel Agent can…
    1. You may think you’re saving time by letting your fingers do the work, but often times finding what you’re looking for requires you to go from website to website, and then back again, to compare reviews, dates, prices, availability and so much more.
    2. When you give your Travel Agent the details of what you would like for your trip, you’re done, they go to work doing the research, the planning and the booking for you.
  2. Most travel agents are travelers themselves, and as such have accumulated a lot of experience and information, that they can use to advise you with to make your trip that much more trouble free and enjoyable.
  3. They also have technology at their fingertips, information that you don’t have access to, and can help you find the best offerings.
  4. They are experts at booking trips for large groups, which can get a little complicated if you’re trying to do it yourself. Also, they have access to bulk buying specials that are offered by hotels, airlines, and tour packages.
  5. DestinationWedding-ProbusWorldTravelMany Travel Agents are specialized in their business, their specialties include:
      1. Cruises – River Cruises or Ocean Cruises
      2. Destination weddings
      3. Group travel
      4. Luxury Travel
  6. They can give you advice on what to pack, tipping, transportation, hotels and much more.
  7. If the need arises because the unexpected happened and your reservations need to be changed, they are a great advocate to have on your side.
  8. If, while you’re on your trip something goes wrong, they are on the other end of the phone to give you whatever assistance is possible.
