5 REASONS TO CHOOSE A TRAVEL AGENT
Match Making Cruises- Trying to find the best cruise line and ship for you can be difficult. With a travel agent, they have extensive knowledge of the best cruise line and ship for you. You can always give them a budget and what you are expecting and they will do their magic. Some people prefer a larger vessel with a plethora of activities, while others want a more intimate experience on a smaller vessel. Travel agents are also a great tool for any questions. They are the people to ask and get a response back probably quicker than the cruise line.
Better Prices- Some believe that booking through a travel agent costs more because of the commission, however, travel agents can usually find cheaper rates than an independent booker. In addition, travel agents can give you special perks that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, based on the cruise line and availability of course.
Booking your trip- Booking a cruise can be overwhelming. Cruises require every aspect of living for the specific amount of time. This means accommodations, dining and what you do for the time allotted. Travel agents want to make this process seamless. They are able to book your restaurants for specific places and dates and times, the certain cabin you want and need, or shore excursions that may not be provided by the cruise line.
Special Events- Planning a wedding or a ceremony? A travel agent is ideal for any kind of special requirements. Whether it be a wedding, vow renewal, wheelchair accessibility or food restrictions, a travel agent is experienced in all and will be able to help.
A personal touch- Booking with a travel agent creates a relationship with the travel agent for future travels as well as peace of mind knowing that if anything goes wrong in the destination, there is a person out there that will help you return home. This also will give you connections for future travels, and if they have any promotions to share with you.
