5 Benefits of Travel Call Centers!
Yes, Call Centers in USA still exist, and travel agents that field your calls can be valuable assets in your pursuit of stress-free and affordable travel.
From simply booking last minute travel arrangements for that big meeting, to a full service 7-day getaway with hotel, flight, airport transfers, (and even Disney tickets) the real, live person on the other line can make you look like a seasoned jet-setter.
Despite the myths and old-school way of booking (on the phone), call center travel agents offer numerous benefits. Here are five:
- Complete Travel Package – The agent is not just being nosey by asking: “May I ask if you’ll have free time while in Miami?” It’s likely that the agent has discount tickets to attractions, tours and shows that can save you time and money.
- Book Branded Hotels – The agent is there to provide a valuable service because you are a treasured client. If a branded hotel is recommended, it’s not because of secret deals with the hotel chain, or a boosted commission. Recommendations are based on your needs such as location, price, star level and best value. They would not be in business long if behavior steered in other directions.
- 3. Easy – Ask yourself – if you had millions of dollars, wouldn’t you have a professional take care of everything for you: Chauffer; Physical Trainer; Personal Shopper; TRAVEL AGENT! That’s because it’s easy, quick, and takes just one call.
- 4. Travel Experts– While no agent can know every hotel and destination, continuous education from the industry’s leader, as well as a sampling of thousands of calls and searches daily provides the knowledge you’ll need. You might find out the agent you are talking to has actually stayed in the destination you are traveling to and can offer personalized recommendations.
Best Rates – Be sure the agency doesn’t charge fees that can end up costing more than online rates. Ask if they have a promo code, or a membership you can sign up for to get even better rates – and save more than the membership fee in the process. The agents at Last Minute Travel can get you into LMTClub.com which the general public cannot even access the lowest rates on hotels and more.
