How Much Does a Travel Agent Cost?

Travel agents and travel agencies partner with airlines, cruise lines, hotels and resorts to provide travelers with the best deals possible.  If you don’t know where to look when it comes to booking a vacation or you simply don’t have the time, a travel agent can put together the itinerary you’re envisioning for a low cost.

Was it worth it?  

  1. Jamie (Mobile,  Alabama) paid $0 and said:

    I actually just went on a cruise, and sure, while you can find the information online, I was able to have a much easier time with my local travel agent. She didn’t charge me and by the looks of it, she saved me up to $100 per person. So for those who are contemplating if they should use one, I say DO IT!

    Was it worth it? Yes
