There was a time when no one traveled without going through a travel agent. Booking your own flights was a radical idea, and when it became the norm, it revolutionized the travel agent industry. It’s true that significantly fewer people used travel agents than did so 15 years ago and the blossoming of the internet. Despite the ease of clicking on a site and buying your own tickets, there remain compelling reasons to use a travel agent. In this week’s blog from Hampstead’s best travel agent, we’ll look at some of the reasons to use a travel agent.

Special Occasions

  • When you are planning a destination wedding, vow renewal, or family get together, there are so many moving parts to coordinate that it’s natural to need a bit of help.
  • Travel agents know how to coordinate guests accommodations and wedding venues. They work with the resorts and venue with such frequency that they have working relationships with people and know how to grease the wheels to get you what you want at a price you’ll love.
  • Their experience has also taught them what resorts and venues to avoid. They know the destinations and can help you get exactly what you want. They may even be able to surprise you by arranging something you could never have imagined because once they know what you want, they can place in a destination at just the right time to give you the perfect destination wedding.
