Everyone today I know books their own trips. I recently had a friend tell me they used a travel agent to book their trip. They said agents can help cut through the clutter and save you time. They can also act as personal advocate when things go wrong on your trip. Agents can also have access to special deals and upgrades you can’t access. Yes, you will be paying a small fee for their services but they said it’s worth it. Ask friends or family who they are using the next time you think of booking a trip.
