Batman Returns (Hollywood), Singham Returns (Bollywood). We’ve heard this, we’ve seen it. But who’s know about ‘The Travel Agent Returns’? Well, it’s true.
We’re witnessing this trend. There’s a resurgence of the profession that was dying. It goes to prove that attention to detail, exceptional service and high-quality never goes out of fashion.
Travel agents have feet on the ground in a destination (either themselves or through their business partners and suppliers) and provide special touches that enrich their clients’ travel experiences. Today luxury is being redefined by modern travelers and this new breed of travel agents.
The beauty of it is that there’s not one way to be a travel professional. We can look at this industry with fresh eyes. This industry coincides with many other facets, including Entertainment, Corporate, Fashion, Adventure, Honeymoon etc. People who have multiple passions can find this business very fascinating, as it allows you to work multiple angles, from corporate fashion travel to booking tours to production for entertainment.
For an agent, it’s one of the great ways to share the world you know with people who want to experience it. The incentives you get from this profession allow you to keep wandering, and everything comes full circle.
A travel agent makes dreams come true, by showing people the beautiful places in the world with confidence, and to create unforgettable memories. With online booking, especially for unknown, faraway places there’s quite a possibility of fraud. We all that scams are everywhere!
The value of a travel designer is not being a sales superstar, but maintaining a tremendous knowledge of destinations, accommodations, and tour operators. They spend a lot of time getting to know the client, so they can make recommendations tailored to what you want to do. There is just too much information out there to sort through. Doing the research on your own could be overwhelming.
The increasing use of travel designers is being driven not by the millennial travelers, not the baby boomers.
So, while planning your next trip, do visit your posh travel designer and have him/her tailor your holiday to suit your needs! Happy Journeys!!
