8 Reasons Why You Need a Travel Agent on Your Side

There are so many different destinations to choose from when it comes to traveling the world, and while you can manage to find a way to travel to them all, a travel agent can be so very helpful. After all, they plan trips for a living, so they know a few more details than you and other travelers. That means they can have your trip planned in no time at all. 

If you have never used a travel agent before, or have been considering using one and just haven’t, here are the reasons why you need a travel agent on your side the next time you travel. 

8 Reasons Why You Need a Travel Agent on Your Side

  1. There is a New Travel Normal

Thanks to the recent pandemic, travel is going to look a little different in the future. There will be a new normal in airports around the world, as well as at most hotels and attractions. If you do not want to spend hours researching all these new regulations and guidelines, you must consult a travel agent to learn about what your travel will look like in the future. 

2. Travel Agents Know Destinations Inside and Out

You will be hard-pressed to find a travel agent who has not sent a client to certain parts of the world. However, some travel agents only specialize in certain areas, so you will want to choose your travel agent carefully. That way, when you are planning your next vacation, you know you are working with a travel agent expert for the area you want to visit. They can use their expertise to ensure that you have an amazing trip that completely exceeds your expectations. 

3. Travel Agents Can Solve Almost Any Problem

One of the main jobs of a travel agents is to solve problems that come their way. Some problems are easy, like determining flights and making sure connecting flights are not missed. However, some of the problems they solve are much larger and yet, they don’t bat an eye when they hear about them. They simply do what needs to be done, so that you have an incredible vacation without a worry in the world!

4. Travel Agents Will Always Be There for You

You will never need to worry about being alone during any of your vacations when you use a travel agent. They will be available to answer your questions at any time of the day. Plus, they can reassure you that everything will be okay, as they walk you through the steps you need to take for every trip you go on in the future. 

5. Available 24/7

This reason expands on the one mentioned above, but it takes it a step further. When we say that travel agents are always there for you, we mean it! There is always a number you can call twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. At Briar & Main Travel Boutique, you have your travel designer’s personal cell in the event you need something before, during or even after your trip.

6. You Will Have Your Own Personal Advocate

You may be seeing that all these reasons seem to lead to the next one and that couldn’t be more truthful than with this one. Your travel agent will be your own personal advocate. If something goes wrong on your trip, if you are treated badly, or another issue arises, your travel agent will advocate for you. Instead of you dealing with the headaches, your travel agent will deal with them and get the response you deserve. 

7. You Can Utilize Inside Connections

If you are working with a travel agent who is really good at what they do, you will quickly discover that they have so many inside connections. This will work in your favor, because they will know who to talk to when it comes to getting the prime table for a dinner reservation, tickets to the show you have been dying to see, or even a room upgrade for a special occasion. 

8. Never Worry About Getting Home

Have you ever been sitting in the airport, waiting for your flight, and then felt the dread when you discover your flight is now cancelled? It’s happened to almost everyone at some point in time, but when you have a travel agent, you don’t need to worry. In those situations, all you need to do is pick up the phone, call your travel agent, and let them work on a new flight for you. You can then sit back and relax, which is the last thing you could do if you had to deal with the situation on your own! 

These are the main reasons why you should start using a travel agent for all your vacation needs in the future. Some of these reasons are just basic, but others will help you figure out this new world where travel is going to be anything but what we are used to.
