Travel Agents Versus Purchase Online

Travel Agents Versus Purchase Online
I continually try to use Travel Agents, however, they just are not competing with buying tickets online.

1 in 20 Travel Agent actual gives advice, the rest just wants to take orders from naïve people, that means I need to visit 20 travel agents to find one with the lights on.

I went to a three Travel Agents here in Cusco, Peru; they all just gave me one price of 121 for the 25 to fly to Lima, Peru. I finally realized there was no thinking here, they just do as I say, they said,
“This is the cheapest ticket you can get.”

I went back home, got on and purchased one online for 92 U.S. Dollars, what is the point in talking with them, there is not a brain attached.

I now suspect there is no such thing as an Air Consolidators Travel Agents, I think they airlines just dump on and or other big sites.

WARNING --- I think they are also blocking some Airfare internet sites, I cannot get one here, the Aero Condor site does not even allow me to choose Cusco to Lima, The other day I was on the internet inside and airport and they had blocked.

What this means, when you come to a very popular travel destination city like Cusco, Peru, it may really be a TRAP, a complete gouge you Tourist Trap. I have notice many times that certain Airfare sites are being blocked.

This person is so naive to think that the travel Agents do not know what they offer. I do agree that you may find some travel Agents that are not familiar with a certain destination but they are familiar with safety and knowledge of an airline. Cheaper is not always better, it depends on the type of plane, safety record of the airline, if you can earn miles with your program, and customer service.

99 percent of Travel Agents are close to worthless. I go into the office of a travel agent one time per week.

I have the travel knowledge to know they do not know what they are talking about, the average person does not know and cannot judge.

Anonymous you do not seem to know anything, that is obvious.
