With the advancement of the internet, booking flights and accommodations can be done anytime, anywhere, and by anyone. A lot of travellers nowadays have this confidence that we can plan everything and get anything at the best rates possible all with the help of Google but— there are a number of good reasons why travel agencies are still preferred by those who have tried them before!

 

Here are 5 reasons why you should definitely get a travel agent (whether getting married or not, it helps! Trust us)

 

1.) AGENTS TO ADVISERS

 

Gone are the days when travel agents would merely do booking transactions. Today, travel agents closely collaborate with their clients to help them navigate through hidden fees, taxes, and etc. to end up making informed decisions. Honestly, we don’t know it all and agents can help us get through those obstacles at a fraction of the time.

2.) IT GETS OVERWHELMING

We have to admit that there are trips that can get too complicated. Wedding planning can get overwhelming on its own but you’d want to have the perfect itinerary and the best rates possible— don’t sweat it, travel agents are here to help!

 

3.) PERKS and DISCOUNTS

 

Not only can they make it a lot less overwhelming but many travel agencies are actually connected with all kinds of traveling companies which means that they can get you the best deals such as the best views at your hotel and free upgrades among many others!

For long time clients, they stick to their agents because they know each of their valued clients’ preferences from preferred airlines, cabin seats, types of layovers, etc. that if the client does it themselves, it would take them a lot more days to compare the vast pool of options compared to handing it over to their trusted travel agent.

 

Furthermore, larger group bookings can usually get (aside from perks) unbeatable rates which only travel agencies can get for you.

 

4.) TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

 

Aside from the time it takes to compare various options, it’s also difficult to contact respective airlines and accommodations. It could take up to 15 mins to finally get to talk to a representative and there’s also a possibility that they’d transfer you to another representative… To be honest, that’s too much time for one phone call; you could use that time to coordinate with your wedding suppliers and address more pressing concerns.

5.) INSURANCE

 

As much as we hate to think about it, trips may not go as perfectly as planned and it can be very difficult to be in an unfortunate situation while abroad. If any emergency or trouble comes up, you can bet that travel agencies are there to help you whether it be missing luggage or a missed flight, they’ll accommodate you.

 

In booking a travel agent, you also need to do your research. It’s especially important to get a travel agency that’s been in the business for a long time and has garnered the trust of many clients. Getaway Tours International is one such agency. They’re accredited by both the Department of Tourist (DOT) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) while associated with Philippine Travel Agency Association (PTAA) and the Philippine Tour Operator Association (PHILTOA). You can contact them at
