OUR BREAKFAST SPONSOR UPDATE FOR EXCEL TRAVEL – MARCH3.21.2016
THE 4 MOST IMPORTANT REASONS TO USE A TRAVEL AGENCY TO BOOK YOUR NEXT VACATION:
1. BEST PRICE
Many people assume that going online guarantees the best price, but ask yourself if you have ever seen ANY proof of that.
Surveys done by Money Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, ABC News, and many more confirm that the old-fashioned, brick and mortar agencies win out every time!
And of course, you have nothing to lose, asking for a price comparison and a second opinion.
2. FREE EXPERT ADVICE
Getting the cheapest price online is easy – finding the best VALUE is a lot more difficult.
Think of your travel agent, as your human, travel-related search engine – at no cost to you.
As a matter of fact – YOU are paying for the services of a travel agent, even if you book your reservation online, yourself.
Travel agents get paid a commission by the vendors we work with (Disney, Royal Caribbean, hotels, etc. and even Expedia)
IF you book it yourself with Expedia, you will NOT get a better price, because YOU did all the work!
Expedia (and Disney, Royal Caribbean, etc) will just keep the commission they would normally pay to a travel agent.
In summary: YOU do all the work. You are making Expedia richer, and you are denying yourself the experienced AND unbiased service of a service that has already been paid for.
3. 24/7 EMERGENCY SERVICE
Answered by a real human being, right away!

4. SHIFT THE RISK
Did you know, that
* going to Mexico, your passport needs to be valid for 6 months past your return date?
* all cruise lines will refuse boarding if you are in your third trimester of your pregnancy?
* every month, people end up in Sydney, Nova Scotia, instead of Sydney, Australia?
* a direct flight is not the same as a nonstop flight?
* if your kids have a different last name and are under 18, you will need additional documentation?
There are so many things that could go wrong …. don’t take a chance!
Don’t let an inexpensive vacation, turn into an expensive mistake.
