Why Hire a Travel Agent Anyway?
If you’re asking yourself this question, you’re not alone: I've asked myself this question dozens of times since starting this little side hustle (my day job is momming).
Why would a tech-savvy person hire a travel agent when the world is at your fingertips? Anyone can book hotels and
Three Reasons to Hire a Travel Agent: Ease, Access, and Expertise.
You want the trip planning process to be less stressful and more enjoyable - especially if your trip is long or complicated.
Long security lines, bad airport food, crying children . . . getting to the relaxing part of a "vacation" can often be more stressful than enjoyable.
Letting someone else do all the research and booking can save you thousands of clicks and hours in time. A travel agent can help you narrow down your options so that the whole trip planning process is less confusing and stressful.
You like swag and being treated like the VIP that you are.
It totally depends on the individual property and sailing, but TRAVELHAPPY clients are eligible for special amenities like champagne, free breakfast, resort credits, or private airport transfers at distinctive properties and on select river and cruise sailings all around the world. Not sure if your hotel or sailing qualifies? We can find out!
You recognize the value in paying for a client-based service.
Like many other client-based services, the decision to hire a professional comes down to recognizing the value in paying for a service. There are lots of things that you could theoretically do on your own that you should probably pay a professional do to, like hiring a real photographer to shoot your wedding photos instead of entrusting the job to your uncle who owns a camera.
And - simply put, you have better things to do in your spare time than research airfares or hotels on tacky online travel sites. You’d rather be hiking, doing yoga, or relaxing with your loved ones. Totally. Me too!
