Why should us use a travel agency?
A good travel agency can not only arrange the various modes of transportation, but also be able to save you money with early booking discounts, special fares, accommodation details and travel advisories. 1. Save Money¨C Strong working relationships with travel suppliers and the latest in computer reservations technology enable travel agents to access the most up-to-date information on how to get you the best value. 2. Traveler Advocates ¨C Your best interests are the priority. 3. Convenience ¨CThe most of the travel agents offer one-stop shopping for all travel arrangements. 4. Service ¨CThe Society provides education, training and resource materials to its members to equip them with the tools to offer the highest quality of service.
How to choose the best travel agency:
1 Ask family members or friends for recommendations.
2 Have a look at the travel agent's website (if they have one).
3 Have a walk past and have a look at the interior and exterior of the store.
4 Make a short list of your favorite so far and give them a call. Cross any travel agents off the list that are not willing to listen or who don't answer your questions properly.
5 Note, that if you still haven't selected a travel agent, choose the one from your list that has
the most years of experience, cheapest deals and is the most helpful.
