Why You Should Use a Travel Agent

Posted on: September 3, 2009

As I’ve been getting started, promoting my new business a lot of people have looked at me like I was crazy.   People don’t use travel agents anymore and they are certainly not travelling during these economic times, right?   Actually this is the perfect time to use a travel agent and there are some wonderful deals out there for families to take advantage of.

Why should you use a travel agent?   My question is why wouldn’t you?  There is no additional cost to you, and it may save you some extra money.   The internet has made it easy for people to check out prices, however; those prices change all the time.  Do you want to spend your time making sure that you have the best price, every day?  Why not let your professional travel agent do that.  I price monitor for my clients and rebook packages at lower prices if/when they become available.  

If you’re planning a Disney trip a good reason to use an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner is to protect yourself from unscrupolous businesses.  I recently posted a story about the 7 people arrested for selling fake/used Disney Magic Your Way tickets.    I will tell you now, there are very very very few discounts on Disney park tickets.  If someone is offering a “great deal” on tickets, they’re probably not legit; or they’re going to expect you to sit through several hours of high pressure time share sales presentations.   An Authorized Disney Vacation Planner has also spent a good deal of time training on Disney products and has extensive knowledge of Disney travel.  I have graduated from the Disney College of Knowledge and am an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner.   What does that mean to you? It means you get an agent that specializes in Disney, an agent that is going to make sure that you are booking the best resort  for you; the best ticket for you; the right dining plan for you.  Not all Disney trips are alike, nor should they be.    There are 24 Disney owned resorts to choose from, because of my experience and training, I’ll be able to find the right one for you.  Make sure you work with someone that will plan your magical Disney trip, not theirs.

Travelling during uncertain economic times may sound like a crazy idea, but there are some incredible deals to be found right now.   How would you like to go to Disney World and eat for free. Yes, I said eat for FREE. Book a Disney vacation package (hotel & Theme Park tickets) and get the Disney Dining Plan FREE*!  

Maybe you’ve been thinking about going on a cruise.  There is one special that has me really excited right now;  Disney Cruise Lines has a special offer for kids to sail FREE on select Mediterranean Cruises in Spring 2010.  Talk about a wonderful experience for the whole family!  Explore different ports in Europe while cruising with the Disney difference.   Not sure about cruising?  I was worried if the kids would like it so I took my family for their 1st cruise this summer and the kids were trying to book the next cruise before we got off the ship.  A 3 night cruise is good for trying cruising the 1st time, but I’ll warn you that if you like it; the cruise will be over way to fast!  The best news is, kids now sail FREE on 3 & 4 night cruises to the Bahamas Winter/Spring 2010!  Now you can try a short cruise for a fantastic price! 

Thinking of going to California?  Disneyland has some amazing offers right now.  Save $400 on 4 day/4 night trips, that as low at $87 per person per day!   There are also offers at the Good Neighbors hotels with a 3rd or 4th night free.  Great way to experience the special Halloween  & Holiday specials events! 

The use of a travel agent allows you to relax and leave the work to the expert; all at no cost to you.  I may be a little biased, but I think it’s crazy not to use a travel agent.  Disney can be a great value vacation, but it’s not cheap.  Don’t throw away your money by not planning properly.    Who can pass up FREE dining or FREE extra nights?   That’s how a family can travel during these times, by using a travel agent that finds them the best deals and the right vacation for them!

*Offer available for stays most nights 9/26/09 – 11/24/09 & 11/29/09 – 13/17/09.   Must be booked by 9/26/09.
