One thing many travelers have learned during the recent Covid-19 pandemic is how valuable a travel agent is during times of uncertainty. Our local AAA Travel Agents have worked tirelessly to help clients navigate travel changes over the past few months. Here are five reasons you should work with a AAA Travel Agent for all your future travel.

1. Customer Advocacy.

Even the best-planned trips can run into difficulties. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control can impact our travel. If you experience a snag on your trip, from cancelled flights to sub-par trip excursions, your travel agent has your back. They’ll work on your behalf to make things right.

2. Insider Knowledge.

AAA Travel Agents have years of trip-planning experience. They can also offer advice when it comes to organizing important travel details such as whether you will you need a visa to visit India and how to obtain one, or how soon to arrive at a port city in advance of a cruise vacation. Just as important, professional agents have their ear to the ground. Has Puerto Rico fully recovered from the series of earthquakes this winter? What areas are clear for travel post-Covid-19 restrictions? Your AAA Travel Agent can give you the scoop.

3. Transportation and Hotel Insight.

Did you know that some classes of airfare won’t allow you to pre-select your seat or change your itinerary? Did you know that some hotels require pre-payment for your stay, and might not offer a refund if your travel plans change? Your AAA Travel Agent can help you select the transportation and hotel options that best fit your travel goals — and your budget.

4. Trend Awareness.

For many travelers, by the time a destination or cruise ship appears in their email inbox, the location has already become busy. For intel on the next emerging destination, a just-opened hotel or the trendiest cruise itineraries, call your AAA Travel Agent — and beat the crowds.

5. Financial Savings.

Your AAA Travel Agent is knowledgeable of unadvertised travel discounts, little-known cost-cutting tricks and the latest package deals. And the services of a AAA Travel Agent are free with your membership. Combine those trip savings with the support offered by your local agent, and you’ll be convinced: Planning your next trip with a AAA Travel Agent may be the smartest travel decision you’ve ever made.
