A Travel Agent is always a great resource to utilize when planning a trip, and now they are even more essential with all of the changes that have happened in the travel industry. Keep reading to hear just a few of the reasons why you should be using a Travel Agent in 2021!
1. Travel agents are staying up to date on CDC regulations.
Travel Agents are constantly reading up on the latest guidelines, regulations, and restrictions being put out by the CDC and the local governments of the destinations their clients will be visiting or are interested in visiting. These regulations are constantly changing and can be hard to keep up with, so your Travel Agent can be a great resource for you when planning your next trip.
2. They know the health and safety protocols for many resorts & destinations.
Travel Agents have close relationships with the various resorts, cruise lines, and land tour operators. They are constantly receiving updates about the constantly changing health and safety protocols from all of the companies they work with. They can advise you on which destination or resort will be the best choice for your trip.
3. They have been traveling over the past year.
Many Travel Agents have still been traveling over the past year. They are experiencing what it is like to travel in this "new normal" and can help you navigate how to make your trip as headache-free as possible. Ask your Travel Agent about their most recent trips!
4. They have tips for traveling safely.
With the combination of staying up-to-date on health and safety protocols and personal travel experience, your Travel Agent can give you helpful tips on how to travel safely. They can tell you about essential items to pack and activities that are fun and safe, too!
5. They are always there for you.
We don't stop working for you once you've booked your trip. Personal relationships with our global contacts allow us to be your voice and help resolve issues if something were to go wrong during your trip. One single person may not have much leverage in terms of complaints and a resolution, but a Travel Agent with an entire agency backing them up certainly will. At Brentwood Travel, we have our own 24-Hour Emergency Hotline that can be utilized in any travel emergency, at any hour of the day after booking with one of our Travel Agents.
