Steps To Pick A Travel Agent For Your Travel Endeavors

Booking your holiday can sometimes be so overwhelming that all you need to find is a decent and reliable travel agent to walk you through the seemingly daunting process.

Questions surrounding the authenticity of the websites you’ve been scanning, the reliability of certain accommodation, airlines, and restaurants, and the safety of the areas you’ve been looking at staying in can generally all be answered by your travel wizard and their trusty computer.

However, I’m sure most of you reading this will know of either yourself or someone close to you, that has had a negative experience with a travel agent. So here’s a rough guide to ensure you find your travel agent soul mate and get the most out of your holiday.

How To Pick A Reliable Travel Agent


Honesty and transparency are the keys to building the right relationship between you and your travel agent. If they are willing and able to show you their computer screen, tell you their fees, and thoroughly take you through the terms and conditions of your holiday, you are one step closer to asking for their number. Most travel agencies will charge change and cancellation fees, so make sure you’re aware of the costs before you book your trip.


The time and hassle a travel agent can save you in booking your around-the-world holiday will be worth the extra few dollars you may have saved on the airfares offered on Expedia or Skyscanner. The support agents can offer you while abroad if something goes wrong is priceless, plus many agents may be able to price beat/price match prices you see on the web. At the end of the day, your travel agent will save you the time and effort of searching for flights, which you can put into deciding what party shirt to pack in your backpack.

Prompt response

Forget the three-day dating rule: if your agent replies to you within 24 hours or earlier, you know you’ve found a keeper. Who wants to wait around while your flights are booking up or you’re stuck in LA airport with the most aggressive customs officials to grace the planet. You want your travel agent to be prompt with their responses and easy to communicate when in need.

Destination knowledge

Your travel agent may not have been everywhere you want to go. To be honest, I wouldn’t expect an agent to have a deep local knowledge of every city on the planet. However, if you can find an agent who has been to, knows about, or is willing to do a bit of research, then you know you’re onto a good thing.
