5 Reasons To Partner With A Travel Agent (Yes, Even If You Are An Expert Traveler!)

Travel Agent greeting clients

If you’ve caught the travel bug many years ago, the chances are that you’ve experienced several modes of travel. You may have experienced countries solo, backpacked across continents, and enjoyed the thrill of loose travel plans. However, as life goes on, traveling does not have to stay the same: with the help of a travel agent, you can explore a different type of adventure, which does not compromise on fun, adventure, or authenticity. 

In this guide, we’ll look at the benefits of working with a specialist when planning your next trip.  

Traveling To Remote Areas In All Safety 

Not all destinations are created equal. When planning a nearby weekend away, you may be able to plan your itinerary by yourself, simply by following the heaps of recommendations you can find online. However, if you are planning the trip of a lifetime to a remote destination, you’ll need the help of an expert. What’s more, certain destinations – including Bhutan, Turkmenistan, Corcovado National Park, and the Inca Trail – can only be visited on a tour!

Enjoying Full Travel Insurance Coverage

When traveling alone, it can be difficult to verify that your insurance coverage will, in fact, take care of you in the event of an accident. That’s where partnering with a travel agent can eliminate all the guesswork and ensure that your travel insurance, such as a Generali policy,  reflects your needs and wants, providing comprehensive coverage (and, thus, peace of mind!) at all times. 

Access To Experts Tips, Tricks, And Contacts

Travel trends have confirmed something we already suspected: today’s travelers want to be more than just tourists, they want to dig deeper into a country’s culture, engage with authentic experiences, and meet the locals. However, doing so isn’t easy when traveling alone! Without the help of a guide and translator, you may need to stick to the most touristy, accessible, and, often, overcrowded attractions. 

Instead, a travel agent will be able to rely on a network of contacts and be equipped with a range of tips and tricks that will allow you to peek below the surface and immerse yourself in a country’s authentic culture. 

Custom Travel Plans That Meet Your Unique Needs

Each traveler may have unique needs and wants. A family that recently welcomed a new dog or cat into their household may be looking for pet friendly travel itineraries. Those belongings to the LGBTQ+ community may want to find welcoming venues and meet with peers. Travelers with kids may be looking for hotels and attractions that are accessible and allow for uncomplicated fun and relaxation. And, of course, solo travelers may need social hostels to meet other travelers and peers. 

These are just some of the examples where a travel agent can help by saving you hours of researching and vetting venues, attractions, and itinerary! 

Enjoying A Change Of Pace With A Stress-Free Vacation 

Last but not least, one of the leading reasons to work with a travel agent: peace of mind. Even if you’ve traveled the world, you may want to experience the serenity of knowing that everything has been taken care of and you can fully enjoy the adventures ahead without worries! That’s the perfect option for your honeymoon, but also for a romantic weekend getaway, surprise birthday trip for your other half, or destination wedding!
