Is an On-Line Travel Agency Right for You?

Once upon a time, if you wanted to book a vacation, cruise, flight, or other means of transporting yourself from one location to the other, you visited a local travel agency. Today, more and more people are turning to the technology offered by the internet, and often, the great deals you can find at an online travel agency. So you have your US passport ready, and you want to head to France from a Valentine’s Day that is out of this world. Where do you turn?


As you can imagine, the intent and online travel agencies have taken a big chunk of business from the brick and mortar travel agencies in your hometown. But the truth is that there are advantages and disadvantages to both types of travel agencies often making your choice a matter of opinion and preference. As you get ready to make plans for your next vacation here are a few things for you to consider.




Shopping online for your travel arrangements can save you big money, right? With oodles of promo codes and coupons, you will always find a great deal when making arrangements via the internet. However, brick and mortar travel agencies know that they need t o be special to compete. Most commonly, you will find amazing deals by booking at a local agency rather than online. Of course, this can also depend on the time of year you plan on traveling and the amount of time you have before you intend to travel.




Both the brick and mortar travel agency and the online travel agency have this about the same if you have a simple need. Online travel agencies can book your needs if they are simple such as getting from point A to point B. However, a brick and mortar storefront will afford you the chance to complicate things a bit. For instance, if you want to go to England, but stop for the weekend in Chicago on the way, you may discover that a brick and mortar travel agency can provide you with better deals on complicated arrangements.




Online travel agencies are, well, impersonal. You click a bunch of buttons after entering information and then you get suggestions on what would work for you. If you want personable service, you need a brick and mortar travel agency. In addition, a brick and mortar travel agency may remind you to get your US passport well ahead of time and to pack a jacket because the weather is going to be chilly. Online travel agencies to not offer the personality or familiarity you will find with a brick and mortar store.


Is a brick and mortar travel agency or an online travel agency right for you? The truth is that both do indeed have their advantages and disadvantages. Finding the right one for you will depend on what you expect from a travel agency. Of course, you do not have to use one… why not use both!
