#6 We Know What You Need (And What You Don't)
This is your vacation. It's your time to make memories, to bond with your family, and to check off items on your bucket list. Don't return home disappointed because you didn't make the proper preparations. Your enjoyment is our job, and we're very, very good at what we do. So go on, make some memories that will last a lifetime. Show your family how amazing the world is. We'd love to help.
We know what you're thinking. "How could paying someone to do something I can do myself save me money?" With affiliations with endless travel companies (airlines, cruise operators, resorts, etc.), we get exclusive deals that aren't directly available to travelers. With flash deals that come and go within hours, we know when to book and how to book.
Beyond that, we know all of the tricks. Switching airports, dates, airlines, or itineraries could cut the cost of your vacation in half. Price out a vacation on your own to see if you can beat our price. We dare you to try.
There's a whole world out there. We'd love to show it to you.

"When is it MY turn to swim with the dolphins?"
With so many resources available to you when booking a trip, visiting a travel agency might seem as archaic as using an abacus to do math. What could a travel agent possibly do that you couldn't do yourself?
Sure, we could get you to Disneyland or London, but why not try some place off the beaten path? We know all of the hidden gems all over the world. Choosing a destination that isn't crawling with other tourists could give you a better vacation for a fraction of the price.
