When we show people our billings and they see the time and money we are saving, most of them start to use our travel agents.During my career as a federal narcotics officer, I traveled to around 60 foreign countries representing the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) while enforcing both domestic and international criminal laws. Thankfully, the DOJ, The Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs and the Drug Enforcement Administration had in-house travel agents to coordinate our travel schedules.
In my current career as a private investigator, I traveled to 60 more foreign countries, bringing my total visited to about 120. It helps that my investigators and I have been blessed in that we know and work with many first-class travel agents.
In the world of private investigations, case activities can change in a heart-beat. In addition, weather delays, maintenance problems and over bookings can add to this frustrating process. Many times our travel agents have worked their magic in overcoming these obstacles through their knowledge, contacts and experience.
Especially during the next few months (given whatever delays the Boeing 737 Max aircraft groundings may cause), you might be best served to have an agent at your disposal.
Here are our top ten reasons we like to use travel agents:
- You can save time and money.
- It is very convenient.
- You can get more for your money.
- Agents can be with you from start to finish.
- You will be given greater access to databases.
- The process is more personal and hands-on.
- Agents avoid you from getting scammed.
- Most agents are readily accessible and well-connected.
- Top agents are passionate about their work product.
- Your privacy is secured with added perks and benefits.
What’s the biggest con about using a travel agent? Finding a reliable one. But once that happens, I believe you will find the pros far out-weigh any cons or any negativity you may have experienced in the past.
