Having been a travel agent for more than 17 years, I am a bit biased when it comes to discussing vacation packages to Las Vegas or any other destination for that matter. Travel agents used to be and, in some cases, still are the go-to persons for all vacation needs regardless of whether it is leisure or commercial travel. Since the advent of online travel sites, many of the best travel agencies in the country fell by the wayside. It’s a shame because travel agents know more about destinations than any online entity. The reason is that as travel agents, we were cordially invited to visit a variety of destinations so that we could become better acquainted with the hotels, airlines, transportation, tours, meals, and notable area within that destination; every aspect of what you as a traveler would want to know about. The ease of using travel agents to book Las Vegas vacation packages has always been, in my humble opinion, an invaluable and knowledgeable experience by which you could learn as much about a destination as possible. The ability to talk to a travel agent one on one could never be matched or duplicated through online reservation sites. While there are still travel agencies alive and well, particularly Liberty Travel, thankfully there are still vacationers who seek them out.
Travel agents make their living by receiving commissions from the airlines, hotels, and tour companies with whom they make arrangements. There are no fees incurred to the traveler for the service a travel agent provides. The travel agent visits destinations on a regular basis; reads the most up to date materials provided by tour companies; visits with hotel and airline representatives; and keeps abreast of news around the world. While it is expedient to use online reservation companies, nothing can compare to the inside knowledge a travel agent has about a particular destination. If you are planning a vacation to Las Vegas or anywhere else in the world, I highly recommend you visit your local travel agent. They are the most professional, experienced, and caring individuals who work tirelessly to keep you informed, up to date, and will go out of their way to ensure your vacation destination exceeds your expectations.
