Travel Agents are not dead nor extinct. We are very much alive and have a wealth of information to share with our clients. There are a lot of ways to see the world, but not all of them are right for everyone. Without a Professional Certified Travel Agent, people are on their own and that can be uncomfortable and expensive.
Not all Travel Agents are Travel Teachers. Some are only “order takers”. Like a drive-thru fast food restaurant – you tell someone what you want and out pops a ticket. Maybe that works for an airline ticket, but for anything more. It’s amazing how much more a travel agent/teacher will do for you.
For many years you could walk down most city business streets and find a number of travel companies. What happened to them?
It is good to step aside and recalculate your travel business to see if you are on the road to success.
On a recent trip to Kansas City, we had reserved a rental car. Not knowing where we were going, we asked for a GPS with the car. As we left the airport, we quickly realized it was good to have that voice telling us which of the multitude of highways to take.
We are off to view places in the Pacific Northwest we have never gone before. This trip we are headed for the Pacific Coast. Since this is a weekend trip, how to pack for this adventure?
