5 Reasons Why You Need a Travel Agent in 2021

5 Reasons Why You Need a Travel Agent in 2021

As travel changes rapidly, our holiday booking habits are too. Travelers need more reassurance and information as to where they should travel, when, and how. If you’re wondering why you should book with a travel agent, read these 5 reasons why you need a travel agent in 2021.

Be more secure and supported

Travel agents have liability to protect you and your money in case the travel companies that you booked with collapse. You won’t be stranded at your holiday destination, plus you will be reimbursed. (Such as in the case of Thomas Cook in 2019).
A travel agent can hold an ATOL certificate only if they are qualified to do so. This means that flight-only or all-inclusive packages they sell will be more likely to be ATOL protected and they have to let you know if your holiday isn’t protected. So booking with a travel agency will give you extra security.

What Does an ATOL Protected Holiday Mean?

You’ll have a dedicated agent/travel expert

When there is a crisis, it’s important to be able to contact the party that you have made a payment to. Unfortunately, it’s often not possible to get through to airlines’ customer service when so many people are doing the same as you.
When you book with a travel agent, you can usually easily reach them or speak to them face to face when there is a problem with your booking. Especially when making complex bookings, you’ll find that being able to speak to an expert about your plans is foolproof compared to doing everything by yourself.

Book everything in one go

As we mentioned above, it’s much better to deal with an expert when you are planning a complex trip involving multiple flight and accommodation bookings, car rentals, insurance or airport transfers. Not only can your travel agent find you deals that you can’t find online, they can also suggest the best routes to save you time and money. Once again, if any part of your booking fails, you’ll only have one person to deal with.

Pay your trip in installments

Established travel agents make sure their customers have the most convenient payment options. You can book your holiday with a deposit and pay the total price in installments. Even though some online providers offer this service, you usually can’t book your flight and hotel separately. When you book with travel agents, you don’t have this issue as they can find you flights for dates you want, book your preferred accommodation or even book you a cruise!

How to Choose the Right Travel Agency

Save time, money, and the effort

You can find good deals online, but working directly with a travel agent can unlock discounts that don’t even exist online. Since travel agents are industry experts, they have the connections to allow exclusive offers that you can’t get on your own. From saving you paying extra luggage to getting you a seat on a plane on very short notice, they can save you time, the effort and money.

In case of changes, refunds and cancellations, you are often faced with no response especially when dealing with airlines. Whereas a travel agent can directly get through to their connections, advising you on what to do.
