Advantages and Disadvantages of Traveling With Travel Agency??

Hello Friends

Here are some information:
Advantages:
1) Convenience. You donít have to besiege embassy and wait in long queues. You donít need to worry about buying tickets and booking hotels.
2) Price. Sometimes travel agencies have special agreements with hotels and the price becomes cheaper. The same thing can be said about avia and train tickets.
3) Comfort in the country of destination Ė you are mostly provided with transfer to hotel and the representative of the agency can solve any of your problems.
4) Your vacation is organized. You have a choice of excursions; youíll be shown the best shops and the most interesting attractions.

Disadvantages:
1) Unfortunately, not all the agencies can be relied on, some of them disappear with the clientís money.
2) Some people donít like to be limited - by excursions, by return tickets or by the necessity of staying in the hotel theyíve chosen.
3) Itís not always cheap Ė often the excursions, offered by the agency representatives are more expensive than in other places in the city.

Please share your views
Thanks for reading

Some travel agency deputed the tourists for showing attractive price and providing affordable traveling stay. But also beware about the travel agency before taking advantages.

RE: Advantages and Disadvantages of Traveling With Travel Agency??

Hello guys, this is another option, the choice is yours:
Advantages:

1) You are free to choose there and when to go. You are free to change you hotel of your return ticket.
2) You are most likely to see the places, not shown to usual tourists.
3) Its a kind of challenge. Cant imagine your holyday without risk and adrenaline? So, this variant is for you!
4) You can seek and find a cheaper variant and not just accept what the agency offers.

Disadvantages:

1) Once again risk. You are not quite safe when traveling alone in the foreign country. Nowadays you are not quite safe anywhere, but still
2) It causes some problems in the stage of organization getting a visa can be a trouble. Interview, invitation and a lot of documents all this can be inevitable. So, prepare to waste some time and nerves.

Clubbing with other people and strict timings puts me off.
I think one should be totally cut-loose to have fun.
But if there is a language barrier, travel agencies can be of great help.

Traveling agencies do whar? These are shown after reading the advantage and disadvantage of Traveling alone
Advantages to traveling alone:

* Your time and budget are your own!

* It's easier to make friends with the locals.

* More space to make your trip entirely your own. Solo travel can be a great opportunity for reflection and moving at an individual pace. By traveling by yourself you only have yourself to please.

* You will be far more flexible than non-solo travellers, and may find it easier to cope with unexpected setbacks and complications. There's nobody to blame you for your own gaffes, after all!

Disadvantages to traveling alone:

* There's nobody to watch your back. And there's no one to watch the luggage while you go buy train tickets. You have to carry all your gear yourself.

* It's more expensive, as there is no one to share costs with. Rooms are usually about the same price for one than for two. You'll need to budget a little bit more.

* You don't have any social proof.

* You may experience moments of loneliness.

If we are not more comfortable with the travel agent we don't have any choice to select an another agent or cancel the present one.

Hi guys

When you decide to go somewhere on vacations the first question you are faced with is how to organize your trip. At least, you need tickets and accommodation. However, if you are going abroad, the situation becomes more complicated. You will need visa, foreign passport and a little bit of information about a country you are coming to. The citizens, living and traveling inside European Union borders are in better position. They are free to visit any EU country without any additional document and visas. But lets imagine you have chosen a country where you need visa. Well, now its time to make some preparations for your trip. At first, whether you trust organizing your trip to a travel agency, or organize it by your own. If you choose the first variant:

Advantages

1) Convenience. You dont have to besiege embassy and wait in long queues. You dont need to worry about buying tickets and booking hotels.

2) Price. Sometimes travel agencies have special agreements with hotels and the price becomes cheaper. The same thing can be said about avia and train tickets.

3) Comfort in the country of destination you are mostly provided with transfer to hotel and the representative of the agency can solve any of your problems.

4) Your vacation is organized. You have a choice of excursions; youll be shown the best shops and the most interesting attractions.
Hello friends

Disadvantages
1) Unfortunately, not all the agencies can be relied on, some of them disappear with the clients money.
2) Some people dont like to be limited - by excursions, by return tickets or by the necessity of staying in the hotel theyve chosen.
3) Its not always cheap often the excursions, offered by the agency representatives are more expensive than in other places in the city.
If you choose the second variant, you should be prepared to some problems, but of course, this variant has its light sides too.
Advantages
1) You are free to choose there and when to go. You are free to change you hotel of your return ticket.
2) You are most likely to see the places, not shown to usual tourists.


Thanks for all friends

Agree with you. I like group trips. I travel to get some new experience and for fun. Must admit that in groups you feel more secure.

The most important advantage of traveling with travel agency ( a reputable and a good one) is that they guide you through out the whole procedure.

This article is still so relevant. It is necessary for tourists to choose wisely. In my opinion, small tour operators and niche sustainable tour operators are more passionate about their work and making their guests as comfortable as possible.
