There are many personal reasons that web visitors return to independent and private travel agents, however, two reasons, are quite common and can be found in the main forums, blogs and message boards.
The number one reason, tourists returning to travel agents are due to terrible stories found online. Usually the story goes like this; Web visitors see a lot of things, read most travel information about travel packages, removing credit cards and vacation books. Just to find out so they reached their destination, that the room that became the side of the ocean was actually in the corner of the hotel and did not have a sea view at all. Individuals went to the front desk to ask for the sea of sea of the sea and was told that this hotel was booked, and the room changes were impossible.
In an effort to save his vacation, they returned to their room and made the best of accommodation given to them.
Except when tourists are ready to book their trips in the future, they are looking for travel professionals, rather than websites. Plus, they share their online stories, with friends and family, and of course the neighbors, who then think hard and long before the main holidays without the help of a professional trip.
The second major tourist group that moved towards travel professionals had never really left a travel agent in the first place. This is a group that wants to take cruise and not sure with all the details when ordering a cruise ship.
These groups of tourists often seek online offers and then call their travel agents to see if the agreement can be matched. And many times, they can’t. Why, because great travel sites buy in large quantities and can discount cruises in a way that can not be done by smaller agents.
Apart from the money saved, when tourists spend $ 2,500 for two people, for a 10-day cruise, they don’t mind paying a little extra to avoid confusion when ordering a cruise ship, which is very easy to do, especially if you are not familiar with the ship.
The third reason, that many travelers do not realize it, to order with a travel professional is the most important reason to order with a travel agent. Can you say payment plan? Online sites usually don’t offer this option. It pays all costs, now, or forget it. Not so when ordering with a professional trip. You can reduce the minimum and pay balance 90 or 60 days before departure in many cases. (Plus you can get special ordering and upgrade birds)
Monthly payments, especially when taking large cruise ships, not only acceptable, but encouraged. And now the shipping industry has added a land value tour along with cruise ships, you can take a half-European tour before leaving with a cruise ship for turkeys, holy land and Greece, or Greece.
