4 Huge Reasons Using a Business Travel Agent is Better Than Booking Online

If you are still relying solely on online booking companies for your travel planning, you have no idea what you’re missing.  Here just a few huge reasons to use a business travel agent in 2018:

#1 Save Time and Money

Professional agents have access to insider discounts and promotions through their suppliers you won’t find online.  They can save you on average 22.95 hours of researching* the best deal and planning out complicated itineraries.  Business travel agents also know when you actually are getting the best deal because they know the market, and best of all, they never charge hidden fees!

#2 Benefit from Expertise

With a Travel Management Company, you get peace of mind knowing that your agents can manage complicated routes and itineraries for corporate travel with ease and efficiency.  They also have increased flexibility with cancellation rules, and the inside industry connections to get you the most value for your budget.

#3 Priority and Personalisation

Booking online means a one size fits all approach to travel, and you as the customer are left in a lurch when it comes to your personal needs and wants. Using a travel management company means you will be able to craft an itinerary that suits you and your group.  This can be anything from finding you the best tacos, to hotels that cater to your allergies, to planning a trip to race supercars around the world.

#4 24/7 Support

Online suppliers will ding you big bucks for last minute bookings, changes, and cancellations.  If you book with an agency, however, you can reach your dedicated travel agent any time without waiting hours for the next available agent only to be juggled between endless people in the chain of command on the other end.  Business travel agents are dedicated to supporting you through your entire journey.
