01-13-2016 Top Five Reasons for Choosing a Travel Agent - Reason #1 - Ability to provide the best options and prices

Reason #1 - Ability to provide the best options and prices

It is not just about price. Consumers are looking to travel agents to provide the best overall solution to their individual travel needs. People have a tendency to immediately think price is what they want and not necessarily what they really want or, importantly, need. Qualifying the client upfront can provide a travel agent with a relevant needs assessment. This can include dates, quality or location of accommodation or stateroom, cancellation policy, recreational amenities, the ease of doing business, etc. It may not just be the price.

No two clients are alike. What works for one may not work for another. Taking the time to better understand you, the client, one at a time, is what we strive to do. Price is important when it is the only thing a travel provider sells. We don't. We make vacation dreams come true.

The World's Largest Shopping Mall is a ghost town. In 2005 a Chinese billionaire began to build a 7 million sq. ft. shopping mall in Dongguan, China. The South China Mall has room for up to 2,350 shops, with a full size roller coaster, 1.3 miles of canals and gondolas, and a 82 ft replica of the Arc de Triomphe. Since 2005 until the present, only about one percent of the mall has ever been used - ever. The other 6.930,300 sq. ft. is under cloth covers. The only workers are security guards who keep squatters away.
