Recently some travel agents opened up about the biggest mistakes that travelers make when they’re booking their vacations.
Rafa Mayer, the Founder and CEO of Say Hueque travel agency, in South America says that sometimes when people book with a travel agency they don’t do as much research as they should.
“We always make it a priority to educate our customers prior to their travels about the destinations they are planning to visit. However, sometimes when a person is using a travel agency, they don’t always do their homework as much as they might have if they were responsible for researching and booking a trip independently. So we recommend that people really develop an authentic understanding of wherever it is in the world that they’re visiting to eliminate confusion and ultimately ensure the best experiences for everyone involved.”
It’s nice to trust the travel agency, but you should always know what you’re getting into. Staying up to date with guidebooks and blogs is always a good place to start.
