You don’t really need a travel agent because traveling is no brain surgery and you can pretty much research it all by yourself. A travel agent is just there to help out business growth and to benefit the vacation business more than benefiting you. Travel agent is costly and they might pressure you into something that you don’t want.
When planning a vacation you just need to do some research about the place that you’re going to and buy your tickets and book your hotel. There is no complexity to the process at all. However, when you travel to another country and you’re going with a traveling company then they might assign you an agent to organize your trip, in this case, it might be appropriate for you to take on an agent. If you’re flying on your own without a traveling company then you should take all the danger to yourself, after all you’re an adult with great intelligence and you can handle a little vacation.
If you’re familiar with your travel destination then you should proceed without a traveling agent. Why would you need them for? A travel agent would add on every little cost they can so they have a chance to earn some extra money for the company. Remember, that travel companies are out there to make money and not to help you to the tiny bit. I know from experience that every time you take on an agent of any sort to help you out they would add on so much other package that would cost a fortune. The one thing that I have against traveling agents are the cost and the packages that they try to persuade you to buy and you might end up buying if you’re an inexperience consumer.
Travel agents are sales people and they sell as much as they can to you. You should avoid them at all cost. Most of us know the world so well by the time we have the money to travel the world and thus we don’t really need people to baby sit us. If you have any uncertainty, you can always research more on-line. The world is just a click away.
Travel company trick you into thinking that you really need a travel agent for a well plan trip and you just need to remember that it’s just a sales gimmick. Travel agents lie and lie. They can be your worst nightmare just like a sales man. Nowadays there’s a lot of companies and especially the traveling companies trying to add every package that they can to your file. They literally want you to spend your entire year traveling and think that you don’t have anything else to do in your life. Traveling companies like to take advantage of traveling tourists because they know that people love to travel and it’s the number one thing that people have to do before they die.
