Q: Why book with a travel agency? (Benefits)

A: We know the market and are able to match you with a better product than you can find off the internet. We can help change travel dates due to weather, or change the destination completely. You can consider us as added insurance. We can assist you immediately rather than waiting in lines or on hold to help re-accommodate your trip interruption. We have access to a variety of tools that the average consumer is not able to use and can sometimes get you a better seat on an airplane, added amenities at hotels, room upgrades, event tickets, and plan activities for you. Our expert staffhave the inside knowledge of destinations, travel trends, best air carriers, airplane seats and will know what hotel and location will suit your travel needs best. Most importantly, we can save you time effort and money based on our supplier relationships and pre negotiated rates -- or at least match the price you find.
