What about Travel Agents?

What about Travel Agents? | TLC TravelS' Tours & Cruises! | Scoop.it
For travelers, the downside of removing the travel agent or arranger from their travel plans is that they lose a level of knowledge and expertise that cannot be easily replaced or supplemented even by the convenience of mobile booking. Without that expertise, travelers are often left to make decisions based upon incomplete information or what appears cheapest, without knowing the full range of options or having a clear view as to which services will best meet their needs.

Why travelers are returning to travel agents

Why travelers are returning to travel agents | TLC TravelS' Tours & Cruises! | Scoop.it

A flood of data has travelers — especially Millennials — seeking out real people to help them find their way.

Sure it was fun, empowering, often money-saving in the early days, when online travel agencies like Expedia and Travelocity became a presence on the Web for price-shopping, and TripAdvisor, CruiseCritic and Hotels.com became fonts of reviews and opinions. Now, though, your fingers are a little worn, you have a headache, you are confused about where to go and where to stay and wonder about safety and what else you don't even know to be concerned about.

You're drowning in TMI. And the life raft for an increasing number of travelers these days is a friendly, flesh-and-blood #TravelAgent.
