01-21-2016 01-20-2016 Top Five Reasons for Choosing a Travel Agent - #4 Safety & Security

Safety and security have always been top of mind with leisure travelers. Since 9/11, continued unrest on the Middle East and now Europe, it has become more important than ever. Travelers are seeking out safety/security information that provides them with up to date information on travel destinations. In the world we live in today, this is critical.! One cannot make assumptions about any destination, especially international, without having the insight from up to date information, whether it is political, health related, terrorism, or weather related. And we know how rapidly this can change. ! ! Travel agents provide a terrific service to their clients by providing this information on a timely basis.

Uluru (Ayer's Rock), Australia. It’s curious to think that without a little rust, Uluru wouldn’t be red at all. This extraordinary rock formation rears abruptly from the heart of Australia’s dusty, russet desert and famously glows a fiery orange-red, especially at sunset. As you hike round the base of what’s probably the world’s largest monolith, think also about Uluru being made up of arkosic sandstone. This acquires its distinctive reddish hue when exposed to oxidation and the iron in the arkose rusts. So what color would this iconic, vivid chunk of rock be without a little chemical decay? A dismal, rather dull grey.
