by | May 27, 2021 | service guide

It’s time for a vacation for you and your family! Or you are planning a work and team building trip for your employees. Or it’s time for your honeymoon! A travel agency can either make or break your trip, so selecting the right one is crucial for that vacation you have been looking forward to all year.

How do you select the right travel and tour agency? Read on to find out.

Finalise the type of trip and experience you are looking for

There are different types of vacations that you can embark on and there are different types of agencies that specialise in curating different experiences. You could have an adventurous vacation, a backpacker-style holiday, a luxury holiday… the options are endless. Once you select the type of holiday you want to take, you can start looking for expert travel agencies that offer packages similar to your needs.

Look for certifications and other accreditations

Once you have finalised the list of travel and tour agencies, it’s time to start checking them thoroughly. The first step is to see what awards they have won, if any, and what certifications their team members have completed. Someone who has been educated and experienced in tourism will provide better insight than a non-certified agent. So make sure your travel agency is well-accredited and recognised.

Check reviews and references

You have to check how other travelers fared when they toured with the agencies you have shortlisted. These reviews and references will validate or invalidate their certifications. You want an enjoyable experience for you and the ones traveling with you, and checking reviews of your agents will go a long way in making sure that happens.

Always, always, always stay within your budget

No matter what your agent says, stay firm and stay within your budget. Don’t get swayed by what they have to offer. This is your holiday and you do not want to burn a hole in your pocket and then resent the time you had. So make sure you do not budge and stay within your budget.

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket

Keep your options open. Speak to multiple travel and tour agencies. See what each one has to offer, and speak to all the agents before finalising on one. This way you will have an in-depth idea of the different packages, what they include, and the financials that each agency has to offer and you can make the best choice for you.

The big idea behind using a travel agency for your holiday is to eliminate the burden of planning and execution every step of the way. If you do your research and select the right agency, your dream vacation can become a reality!
