Myth: I can easily book the same trip on my own without using
a travel agent.
Over the next few days, I will be posting the myths we hear all the time about why people don't use travel agents!
We are hear to explain why; even with the internet, that it is better to use the professionals then doing in on your own.
One of the biggest things we hear is "I can easily book the same trip on my own without using a travel agent.
Sure, you can book a trip yourself, but it may not be the same trip that you'd get through a travel agent.
If you book it yourselves, you are just a "credit card" number to the tour operator.
Nelson and I make it a point to know the people with our business partners; as we call them, we make sure, who to contact in case of emergency, and even the General Manager of the resort, the Vice President of Sales and Marketing of a cruise lines,
Business Development Managers and so on. We just don't send you some place without knowing the company.
If you think that we are strict with getting information on time from our clients, then we certainly want to make sure that our clients are taken care of, maybe there is a room available that isn't listed on the website or with the reservations persons. Maybe there is an upgrade at that location or a special offer or surprises at that location or service you might get working with Echevarria Travel then doing it yourself. I would rather be a person then a number. Wouldn't you?
We are especially useful on specialized trips, whether it's a honeymoon, a cruise or an escorted trip through Europe or the World. We also make sure it is safe for you to go there.
"Anyone can book a hotel room and a rental car but we sell romance travel, family travel, group travel, and hosted events. "Do you want to take a chance on booking your own hotel or that travel experience that you have been waiting to do and not have anything go wrong Will someone be there to pick you up in the airport in Madrid? I know people who've been stranded when they arrive. That's one reason you need an agent."
Nelson and I take the time to ask you the questions about your destination, and match you up to the perfect place. I mean if you are in your 50s and don't want to go on a cruise with the kids or party people and want a more of an educational experience,, then we can offer you that. Or if you want go jet skiing and that country or location doesn't offer it, we will recommend that as well.
You can read all of the hotel and resort review on the web, but guess what is you want the real information, because people on the Social Media outlets are just so honest, and never complain. Some complain that the food was terrible at such and such a place. or it was dirty or not safe to go, and they read that it was and decided to book online. These are stories that we have had people go through and contact us for the help and we cannot at that point..
Have you ever been stranded because of a canceled or delayed flight, there's nothing like , like e-mailing or texting us to get you on another flight. We can often do it much faster than the airline.
