Here are the top 5 Reasons to Use a Travel Agent and why Globe Getaways should be your travel partner.

1. You’ll Save Time!
The average consumer spends 5 hours researching and booking  their own trip. There is no shortage of information on the web but making sense of it all and sorting out marketing from good solid information is difficult. We sort out all the details for you so you can have a more pleasant and less time-consuming experience.

2. You’ll Save Money!
There is a common misconception that using a travel agent would just cost too much money. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Most of our services are essentially free to you as the consumer. We can get you the same prices as can be found on popular travel sites with no additional fees and without the hassle of having to track down the deals. While we do offer some premium services that do incur charges for some corporate, air only, and group travel, our prices are extremely reasonable. While there are some travel agents who charge for all their services, at Globe Getaways we do our best to get our fees from vendor commissions alone.

3. Expertise and Knowledge
We sift through all the marketing, hype, reviews, and options to get you the best possible deal on the trip you want. Don’t quite know what your want? We can help with that too! We are first and foremost consultants working for you and your interests. While most travel sales organizations are focused on sales we pride ourselves on being consultants and not salespeople. While it is true that we make money on commissions, our goal is to provide you with the trip that fits your needs.

4. Connections
While we do our best to be experts in everything, there are limits to our powers and knowledge. As a KHM Travel Group affiliate organization we have access to thousands of other agents with expertise in every destination and type of travel imaginable. In addition, our affiliate with KHM Travel Group provides us with special relationships with over 300 travel vendors.

5. Plan an Experience, Not a Trip
Research shows that new experiences cause our perception of time to change. By forging new memories we cause our brains to perceive our vacations to be much longer. This is why summer break as a child seemed to take an eternity but summer passes us by so quickly as adults. Be a kid again and let us help you forge new memories and experiences to last a life time.

Contact us today let us show you what we can do to make your next trip as pleasant as possible.
