Why You Should Use A Travel Agent
Planning a vacation is a very complicated and time-consuming process. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of using a travel agent (specifically The Pixie Planner) to help plan and book your travel.
Having a professional help with the planning and logistics of your travel plans can have a big impact on how much you spend on — and how much you enjoy — your vacation. As travel becomes more and more complicated with COVID restrictions and requirements, and your vacation time more valuable, let’s take a look at the 7 reasons to use a travel agent to book your travel in 2022 and beyond!
1. Travel is what we DO!
The #1 benefit of using a travel agent when it comes to booking your family travel is because travel is our expertise.
Much like you would hire an electrician to handle a wiring issue, or a financial planner to help manage your money, you should turn to a travel professional when you’re in need of assistance with your travels. We are trained to know, understand, and adapt to all different forms of travel.
We research information on their client’s travel plans and relay important details including travel advisories, recent news, weather conditions, and required documents for your destination.
2. Destination knowledge
We uncover new destinations with personal experience and are constantly on the lookout for the best trips and travel recommendations.
Likewise, we are the best resources to contact when looking to book unique places to stay in the USA and beyond!
Not only do we travel the world to serve as a resource for our clients, but we have an abundance of other travel-related resources from our clients and connections to answer your questions quickly and correctly.
We can offer the convenience of having every aspect of your vacation or trip pulled together in one comprehensive plan.
This includes researching and suggesting destinations, as well as arranging for flights, accommodations, airport transportation, and excursions!
By doing so, all of the guesswork is taken out of these selections and your final details will be available in one hub of information provided to you by your Pixie Planner
4. Saving $$
Many people might be hesitant to work with a travel agent because they think it will cost them extra money.
They may also assume that they’ll spend more money working with a travel agent than when booking vacations on their own, but we are here to tell you that it's NOT true!
The fact is that travelers do not pay more for vacations when working with a Pixie Planner and instead, often save more money than they would if booking online! Not only do we have access to exclusive deals, but they keep track of current vacation promotions, can advise you on the best time to book, as well as calculate the value of what you will receive! And the best part? We can price match almost ANY vacation! So there is really no reason to not use a travel agent!
The relationship you’ll form with your personal Pixie Planner, as well as their relationships with other agents, are two of the benefits of using a travel agent. Through getting to know you, your planner will honor your personal vacation requests and hand-pick its details to tailor to your needs!
6. Travel assistance.
The Internet doesn’t call you back, but we do! During times of crisis (hurricanes, Covid-19, etc.), you make one call, text or email and we handle the rest. One of the best benefits of using a travel agent is the travel assistance that you will get in working with an actual person, versus the Internet. Quite simply, when working with a travel agent, they take care of everything.
From the moment you set foot in the destination to the moment you touch the ground back home, dedicated travel assistance is an undeniable benefit of using a Pixie Planner.
7. A stress-free vacation!
Another one of the top benefits of using The Pixie Planner is that we always have your back! We exist to assist our clients in making travel as smooth and as stress-free as possible. In the rare case that something on a trip doesn’t go as planned, we are there to resolve the problem, so that you can continue to relax and enjoy!
Not only that, but self-directed internet searches provide overwhelming amounts of information. To make a trip extra special, it’s best to have someone who knows how to connect all that information and turn it into an itinerary that is seamless and stress-free!
