Planning a trip can be a very exciting time. Still, there can be a lot of stress to go along with it. Sometimes it’s OK to plan things yourself. This applies if it’s a simple trip or if you have made arrangements before. But, if you’re taking a trip that involves going somewhere new and/or has a lot of detailed planning, you might find value in using the services of a travel agent.
We’ve used a travel agent twice in planning trips. Both of them fit the criteria above, as the first was for our honeymoon trip to Hawaii back in 2007, and the second was for our family trip to Disney World last fall.
How Our Travel Agents Earned Money
In both cases, our travel agents worked for us and we got the same pricing for the services or goods that we purchased as we would have had we gotten them on our own. (Trust me, I checked!)
