Top 10 Reasons to Use a Travel Agent

Tweaked a bit, but originally from our friends at Travel Impressions – Ruthanne Terrero, (TravelAgentCentral) author

  1. You’ve googled “Mexico Vacation” and come up with 145 million results. Need a little help editing those choices down a bit?
  2. Remember when you used that obscure website to book your hotel and when you got there you spent your beach vacation overlooking a parking lot?
  3. How many hours were you on hold with the airlines after your flight was canceled?
  4. Did you really mean to spend your honeymoon at a resort whose tiny pool was filled all day with screaming children?
  5. Who knew that when you booked the “villa” in Tuscany that it would be a small room with a kitchenette and no air conditioning?  Funny, it looked much better on your computer screen.
  6. No one explained that in July, it’s winter time in Rio and you showed up there with nothing but five Hawaiian shirts and three pairs of swimming trunks.Tulum2
  7. How about the time you really needed a restful vacation and you ended up in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and someone lost their lunch on your new shoes?
  8. Yes, I guess that hotel did you use a telephoto lens when they took a picture of those guest rooms you saw on their website.
  9. I suppose contacting the Attorney General to resolve the fact that the internet site has billed your credit card 3 times for the same trip is the only route to go at this point.
  10. It was definitely odd that there were no cab drivers at the airport at 3 o’clock in the morning when you landed in Cost Rica.  Who knew you should have pre-booked a hotel transfer when you booked the hotel and air?
  11. So that’s what they meant when they talked about an excursion to see “pole dancers”.
