Travel Agents Care about Your Travel Experience
Professional travel agents actively seek ways to take the hassle out of travel. For example, they want to make sure that all of an airline's "hidden" fees are disclosed up front, no matter how you choose to purchase your travel. You are entitled to full and honest disclosure of all fees and charges associated with air travel before you purchase a ticket, whether you choose to purchase directly from an airline or from a travel agency. ASTA member travel agents are working to make sure that is available to you.
ASTA member travel agents are dedicated to providing you with great service, with FREE Trip Quotes. A good travel agent will provide you with a broader knowledge and an entire range of services and information up front so that you, the traveling public, can make informed decisions.
Travel agents are there to answer your questions, help you save money, offer suggestions and ensure comfort throughout your journey. Travel agents have an abundance of helpful traveling tips. They can assist you in last minute changes to your travel plans, provide trip quotes, save money on hotels and air. The bottom line is that travel agents have a vital interest in providing you with an unforgettable experience.
