16 Things Travel Agents Want You To Know
Everything you need to know about planning your dream trip.
For the best deals, book your flights as early as possible.
And book accommodation ASAP too.
Be flexible with your dates to get the best deals.
Ask for quotes on multiple flight and accommodation options.
Figure out your budget and be up front about it.
Beware of hidden costs.
Ask a travel agent about options and deals you might not have access to as an individual customer.
Ask to speak to someone who has been to the location you want to go to.
You might even find someone who specialises in that area or type of holiday.
Travel agents can do all the planning for you, or just give you tips on your itinerary.
When researching yourself, make sure you read reviews that match your own expectations.
If you want to do a big trip, ask about a continuous or "thru" ticket rather than a round-the-world flight.
Don't try to change your sleeping patterns before you go away.
When travelling somewhere for the first time, find local, short tours and do them during the first couple of days of your stay.
In popular cities, staying outside the central area can be cheaper and also give you more of a ~local~ experience.
And always travel light.
