No. You pay the same price for your vacation or cruise. The resort or cruise lines pay the travel agent and you get the expert help with no added fees.
Travel agents have access to the same sources as the online re-sellers and we often have access to better deals offered only to travel agents.
While the internet offers many choices, it also offers a lot of hidden dangers. Online travel sites are considered third party re-sellers so vacations, cruises and airfares purchased through them offer little to no recourse if you have any problems on your trip.
Yes, with all the resources on the internet, you can do it yourself. But, there are thousands of choices and you can spend hours and hours deciding. We find out your interests and help you design the trip you are looking for.
That's super! It will make planning your vacation easier. But there may be things about your destination that will make your trip more enjoyable, avoid pitfalls or even save you time and money.
