The state of the travel agency is strong and the outlook even better. Now, more than ever, the travel agency is needed.
In a time when the travel industry is booming, there are more and more travel products to choose from, whether it be a cruise, a river cruise, or a land-based vacation. There are equally as many credible and successful tour suppliers out there that have and continue to provide exceptional itineraries and hospitality services. Sometimes, it’s hard to choose which supplier to plan your travels with due to the sheer number and saturation of these services. It becomes hard, even for us, to recommend exactly which supplier to book our clients with without going into the minute details of a client’s travel preferences. A lot of our clients know exactly what they want - and more power to them! But what about our clients who yearn for new experiences, or suddenly want something more of their travels?
The travel agent. You might think to yourself “gee, they’re still around? Why do I need a travel agent when I can just plan everything myself and find the best deals online?” You could certainly do this, but you would be guaranteed to miss out on the nuances of an amazing, and luxurious, travel experience.
