If you're planning a trip after the pandemic, maybe it's time to call a professional. A competent travel agent can help you navigate the strange new world of airlines, hotels and rental cars. Travel is radically and almost unrecognizably different after the COVID-19 pandemic. That is why you need a travel advisor, say experts.
A travel expert can handle any emergency that may arise when you're on the road — everything from a missed flight connection to a hotel that closes unexpectedly. But remember, an online travel agency is not the same as a travel agent.
"Try dealing with an online travel site at 10 p.m. when your connecting flight gets canceled while you are in flight," says consumer expert Chip Bell. "Travel sites are filled with data and information; travel agents are filled with wisdom and ingenuity."
It's a discovery a lot of travelers made at the start of the pandemic.
"As travel restrictions were just starting around the globe, many of our advisors were receiving phone calls and emails from travelers who had booked with online companies and were not getting a response from them," says Roger Block, president of Travel Leaders Network. "Yet our advisors were answering the phones and returning emails. So our advisors helped travelers who were not even clients get their trips rescheduled or get them on flights back home."
You may need a travel advisor for your next trip. Here's what a professional can do.
