01-14-2016 Top Five Reasons for Choosing a Travel Agent - #2 Saving Money

Saving money is also not just about price. It is more about value. If the hotel was not the right location, if the cruise line was not the right cruise line, if the golf course was not the right golf course…it does not matter how much you the traveler saved. You will not be happy with your vacation. One can save a ton of money and be miserable. Saving money is important to consumers only after they have evaluated the value equation.

Value is what they are looking for. This is where we, your travel agent, can provide a discernible difference. By properly qualifying our clients upfront, we can recommend relevant offerings and also provide cost saving strategies. Moving a date, changing the location of a room/cabin, being open to flight options, etc., all can save money. Nobody wants to pay more than necessary. In today’s environment, it is now fashionable for customers to brag to their peers and friends how much they have saved, whether it is a hotel room, airline seat or cruise. Value perceived and received is critical.

And remember, if the traveler has a bad travel experience, they will never speak of how much money they saved.

We help travelers avoid those disappointing situations and still save money. Vacation dreams can come true on a budget as well as not on a budget. See our testimonials.

It was 1869. Ten men in four boats were about to embark on a journey that would cover almost 1,000 miles through uncharted canyons, and change the west forever. They were led by John Wesley Powell, a professor who had lost his right arm as an officer during the Civil War. Three months later only seven of the original company plus their one -arm Civil War hero-leader would emerge from the depths of the Grand Canyon at the mouth of the Virgin River. Powell became a national celebrity, as famous in the United States as Neil Armstrong would become after walking on the moon – a feat that occurred, coincidentally, exactly a century later.
