What is a Travel Agent?

travel and hotel options, a travel agent makes the process of traveling as easy as possible. A travel agent also has a general understanding of local tourist attractions and can offer itineraries and tours upon a client's arrival. Many travel agents have extensive experience with personal travel or have a history on a cruise ship or airline travel. They are usually hired by travel agencies, airlines or by cruise ships in order to assist clients in enjoying their time on vacation.
