If you want a truly remarkable vacation, forget trying to cobble it together yourself using a series of websites. What you need is an expert—someone who knows the locales you want to visit, the best hotels, the unique attractions, the inside scoop on local transportation, and all of the other small details that make a vacation run smoothly. To kick off your vacation planning, schedule an appointment with a travel agent, and bring along these questions:
Do You Specialize in a Particular Type of Travel?
Not all travel agents book all kinds of travel, so it’s important to match the agent with the type of trip you want to book. Some travel agencies deal only in corporate travel, while others work exclusively on leisure trips. Some travel agents specialize even further and are experts at booking cruises, ski trips, or vacations to particular regions. The more in-depth knowledge your travel agent has, the better your final travel itinerary will be.
What Kind of Trip Should I Take?
Sometimes, when you visit a travel agent, all you really know is that you need a vacation, and need help filling in the details. A good travel agent can question you about your past trips, favorite activities, travel partners, and budget, and then come up with a list of destinations that are suited to you. Your agent’s suggestions are a great way to discover new places you might not have come up with on your own.
Do I Need Any Special Planning for My Destination?
Though the places you’re thinking of traveling to may be new to you, they’re very familiar to your travel agent. Be sure to ask for insider advice about your destination. This can include everything from safety tips to advice about local transportation and where to exchange currency.
