With the ease of booking just about everything online, why use a travel agent? We’re here to help you plan your dream vacation no mater what your budget, offering you options for the best experience.

  1. DEALS – The number one thing everyone is looking for is the best deal. That doesn’t always mean the best price, but for many it does. It also means the best experience and most value for your money. Unpublished fares and rates do exist, so often a travel agent will save you money. We know all the promo offers, can offer you alternatives you never thought of and hello you make the best choices. Even when the price doesn’t matter, a travel agent will usually find you the best value–whether it is a room upgrade, extra onboard credit, or just something special thrown in. Of course, we’re here to make sure you get exactly what you want for the best value.
  2. ADVOCATE – What happens if the hotel loses your reservation or has no record of your online booking? What if you turn up and there is no car waiting? Often, you are stuck with little hope of straightening it out. That’s where a travel agent can step in. Not only will your agent have records of all your reservations, but they have a bit more power with the agent, clerk or manager. Instead of one person upset, they risk losing hundreds of other customers from a single travel agent. It’s true that hotels and car rental agencies will help a travel agent. Travel agents will also make sure that you are happy on your trip and handle all complaints while you’re on the road and when you arrive home.
  3. KNOWLEDGE –A travel agent trains constantly, learning all the ins and outs of the industry. We know the latest and greatest and can share that knowledge with you. Plus, we use our personal travel experience to make your trip even better.
  4. FARE CHANGES – As a travel agent, I always keep my eye on your reservations to make sure that the price doesn’t drop drastically. From rebooking a car reservation to upgrading to a penthouse at the same rate you were paying for a studio, we make sure that you’re always getting the best deal!
  5. WE DO THE WORK – Instead of spending hours on the phone or days hunting through various websites, you can make one phone call or send one email to us and we’ll do all the work. Your time is precious, so let us help you make the most of it. Everything is at our fingertips.
  6. PRICE – How do I offer lower prices on cruises and vacation packages? My agency often reserves several cabins or spots on a tour that may be booked at a group rate. Macris Travel, Travel Planners International and Ensemble Travel Group each have a range of group space reserved on a variety of cruises and vacations. These low group fares are not available direct from the cruiseline or tour supplier. Use the savings to enjoy more on your vacation, upgrade to that suite or just save a few bucks!

Remember, we’re here for you, not the airline, cruiseline or hotel. We work for you and want you to be satisfied. After all, a happy customer is a repeat customer. If you’re ready to book your next vacation, call 206.407.3535 or email info@macristravel.com today!
