Why Travel Agents?

It’s the day before your trip-of-a-lifetime and you get that email notification that your departure time has changed, causing mass havoc with your itinerary.  If you booked with some generic web site, you’ll spend the next 3 hours on the phone trying to fix it with some call center in Asia.  Doesn’t that rob you of the joy of your anticipated adventure?

This is why using a travel agent has huge advantages.  Here are a few of the reasons using your neighborhood travel agent can be helpful.

  1. A personal interaction.  Pathways Voyages isn’t a multinational corporation and you’ll never get a computer.  When you call us, we answer the phone.  There are never numbers to press to get a live person.  We pride ourselves on knowing our clients and learning your travel tastes in order to make the best recommendations that fit your travel style.
  2. An advocate.  When the inevitable schedule change hits your travel plans, you don’t want to sit on the phone fixing it yourself.  As your personal agent, Amanda does all the hard work for you, working to make sure any problems you have are worked out to your satisfaction.  Agents often know how to work with operators to get quick resolutions to your travel problem.
  3. Knowing where to look.  Sometimes searching the web is overwhelming.  When you tell us your preferences and tastes, we can point you to some specific itineraries that work for you.  Amanda knows the best places to look for those travel deals.
