Travel agents, not only can they do things the Internet can’t, but they also still collect a lot of their fees from vendors, which means there is no charge! Which is why we’ve compiled these seven reasons you might want to get a travel agent plan your next trip.
They know whether you’re getting a good deal
Since 90% of the airline tickets you buy may be for a domestic flight, your knowledge of the relative value of a trip to London may be limited. A travel agent, however, books an enormous amount of flights per day, which give shim a great knowledge about it.
Travel agents know where to go in a city, or know someone who does
Instead of reviewing all the Internet websites related to the city, the Travel agents know exactly where to go and what to visit, and even if they don’t, the network that is around them will be able to give a focus and correct answer.
They’ve got your back when it comes to flight delays/cancellations
I you have had a canceled flight, you know how hard is to contact the website you buy your ticket from, even if it is direct with the airline, but is you call your travel agent, he will be able to get you another flight and save all the problems for you.
They can get your seats together, on the same plane, for the same price.

And speaking of hours on the Internet, Travel Agents do all the research for you
Travel Agents know your preferences, and won’t tease you with cheap flights or accommodations that involve leaving and returning the same places over and over. Unless you want them to.
They get better prices

They do more than just booking
When a travel agent helps you with the reservation, he doesn’t just do that; he will also give a recommendation, will value your needs and try to accommodate your travel to the requirements that you expose.
