Why A Travel Agent Is Valuable To You

A good travel agent actually becomes your local contact and his available to help you with all those other things that you can't really get done by using online services.

In Poland, you will find that when traveling around the country on the trains or buses that most of the arrangements have to be made locally.

And you will find that many of the services in the smaller towns and cities are provided generally in Polish. That is not to say that sometimes you cannot get German or English service, but most often you'll find that you have to have someone who speaks Polish to help you.

If you make all your travel arrangements through a travel agent that agent will generally go out of its way to help you with all those little things such as finding the right restaurants, the best hotels, the best places to shop and a step in when you have a problem.

A travel agent actually becomes an insurance policy to you. If you get sick, lost, are late, and something stolen, or have any other difficulties, they called your travel agent will most often get you help.

And let me add another little fact of life. When you travel anywhere, the prices you pay when you go it alone are often higher than what a local can get for you. And don't kid yourself, the numbers can add up.

Even if you see that you have been ripped off by a cab driver or someone else, don't expect the police or anyone else to help. You are on your own. With a travel agent behind you, you are more likely to avoid these situations and you are more likely to get help.

Moving on, getting transportation from the airports and train stations to your destination can be made much easier if you use a travel agent. And it can be much safer and cheaper because your travel agent knows the service providers that you should use.

You don't have to pay travel agents. They are paid a commission by the service providers. In many cases, you will actually find that you get better rates when using the travel agent. And even if you get just the same rate that you would have gotten if you made only arrangements yourself, you still have the backup insurance of the travel agent being there to help you.

Let's look a little more and what the travel agency can do for you.

Travel agencies buy in bulk. And because of that they get leverage. They often can get you deal is that you cannot otherwise get online.

And that includes airline tickets as well as hotel room rates.

And because they work locally, they know the locals and can get even better deals for you that you would not find elsewhere.

And if you get in trouble in any way on your trip such as being delayed, getting sick, or having something stolen, all that you have to do is pick up the phone and talk to your travel agent. That travel agent will help you and make alternative arrangements for you and help you through your problems.

Think about it. When you work with a hotel, car rental companies, or any other service provider, they don't worry so much about losing a particular customer. But they do worry when they get a phone call from a travel agent that sends them a lot of business. They know they have to satisfy the travel agent or it will cost them a lot of money in the long run you can.

By having a travel agent work for you, you get the leverage of buying power and you get attention that you would not otherwise get. And this is a huge benefit. Not only do you get attention and service, you get it now!

You don't pay a travel agent. They get paid a commission by the service provider.

In the real world of competition, generally you will find that if you use a travel agent you can save money as compared to what you would have spent should you do it yourself. Again you benefit from the leverage of the travel agent's buying power.

And if you paid a travel agent the same amount as you would have done had you done it yourself, you'll generally find that you get a higher level of service.

So how will you know?

Layout your complete travel plan, your needs, and your questions. Submit them to a travel agent and ask for a quotation and help.

And when I say your complete travel plan, your needs and your questions, that means your accommodation requirements, travel requirements, tourr requirements, sightseeing requirements, travel guide requirements, transfer service requirements, medical and prescription requirements and anything else that you plan to use or do in country.
