Why You Should Consult a Travel Agent for Booking Vacations

Mar 30, 2012

If you are planning a vacation, the first aspect of the trip you likely will consider is the destination. After all, no traveler packs for a trip without knowing where he or she is going. But once the location has been determined, it's time to find a good deal on airfare, housing and any all-inclusive options available.

In today's digital world, many travelers use the internet to plan their vacations. There are websites that accrue various price estimates for luxurious trips and, in some instances, can save you money when you purchase a package online. However, with the economy rebounding, people around the United States have more money in their pockets, which they can use toward travel, so making sure the trip is worth the investment has gathered even greater importance.

According to a new report from travel industry research authority PhoCusWright, traditional travel agencies still account for approximately one third of travel bookings in the United States, and today's agents are reinventing themselves to stay relevant and competitive. In fact, traditional travel services racked up $95 billion in sales in 2011, or one third of the $284 billion total.

If you want to make sure your vacation is the best possible, you may want to work with a travel agent directly. Experienced experts can advise you on ways to save money when booking a trip, and you can also speak with them about ways to get before you leave. Traditional agents are a one-stop shop for all of your travel essentials, and you shouldn't leave home without consulting one.
