Why It Pays to Book with an Independent Licensed Travel Agent

Booking a holiday often proves to be an extremely stressful, gruelling undertaking. You can spend hours online searching for deals on flights and hotels, bouncing from one website to another in pursuit of the perfect price which can cause headaches.
Avoid the hassle and contact us. When you are faced with countless choices for flights, hotels, car rental, and tours, how do you know you have the best deal? We have the best technology to ensure we are providing the best available rate for you which will save you time, money and headache tablets.
There's a difference between price and value, the internet may not tell you when looking for a 5 night hotel deal that you can stay an additional 2 nights free of charge, it may also not tell you that if you travel two days later you could save a lot of money.


Here are six reasons, why to book with us next time:

Save Time: We can save you time by vetting thousands of flight and hotel options to find the right fare at the lowest rate.

Save Money: Some people’s perception are that travel agents charge extra for their services, this is a myth. We have access to the best rates in the industry and it is in our best interest to access the best deal for you whilst providing excellent service.

Be Inspired: Very often, people don't really know what kind of trip they want. It is our job to listen to your needs and make recommendations to ensure you receive a holiday that’s right for you. We also may make suggestions which you’ve never thought of.
Relationships. We work closely with our suppliers and ground handlers around the World who are experienced even with the most unusual requests.

Authenticity: The right agent will enlighten you about trip options you may not be able to find online. We will endeavour to make recommendations to help you find unique life experiences that you will remember. Recently on my travels I met an elderly lady who was travelling alone who had 8 hours to wait in an airport! Her travel agent did not suggest an excursion for her to do during that time or recommend a restaurant for lunch.

Knowledge: Flawless travel plans lie in the details, and travel agents are experts when it comes to handling those details. Would you always know if there’s building work going on in a hotel, or if a hotel has changed management and its standards have decreased?

Troubleshooting: Despite extensive travel planning, you might encounter some bumps on your trip. Having a travel agent handle them for you can make your travel experience a lot less stressful.
