This article in The Washington Post was brought to my attention this morning:

Travelers Turn Back to Travel Agents

Taj Mahal    Normally I don’t read articles like this in detail, but what got my attention was that it recounts the experience of a traveler who asked his travel agent to book a 10-day trip to India on short notice.  When we first opened Celebrations International Travel in 2005, we booked itineraries like this every day.  The reason was that we worked with adoption travel at that time, and most of our clients departed within 7-10 days of purchasing their arrangements.  With that being said, we had several clients who left within 48 – 72 hours of completing their arrangements.  No, that is not a misprint!

We know and understand that as travelers, you always have a choice as to how, where, and with whom you book your travel arrangements.  I’ll be the first to admit there are great travel deals to be found online, and travelers can indeed book on their own.  However, there really is no substitute for the expertise that a good travel agent brings to the table.

With the advent of the Internet, travelers have greater access and more options than ever when it comes to booking trips.  I’ll be the first to admit that using the Internet is indeed a convenient way to book travel.  But I don’t think it’s always the best option, especially if you’re considering an extensive or detailed trip, or if the trip involves a destination or type of travel that you’re not familiar with.

In these cases, why not consider using a professional travel agent?  A good, knowledgeable travel agent is trained to ask the right questions, make suitable recommendations based on your needs, wants, and travel budget, and make your arrangements in a way that best ensures a smooth and hassle-free trip.

At many agencies, including Celebrations International Travel, it does not cost you extra to use our services.  Then how do we get paid, you ask?  The travel suppliers we work with pay us.  So there is no extra cost to you, our clients; and it is in our best interest to find you the best deal possible on travel experiences you’ll thoroughly enjoy.

The next time you have the urge to get away, to enjoy some much-needed time off, why not leave the planning to the pro’s?  Celebrations International Travel’s agents would be more than happy to help you plan the perfect vacation.  Contact us to learn more about how we can help you.
