With the use of the world wide web these days hiring a travel agent to book your honeymoon may seem obsolete. As much as I love searching through orbitz, cheaptickets, and kayak to find the best vacation deal... I have used a travel agent to book my last 3 vacations, including our honeymoon!
There are several reasons why a travel agent is beneficial, and my top two favorite reasons is saving you time and money! Instead of spending hours each day waiting for the best online deal, let your agent do the work for you (this is their job!) They have access to a major database and can give you insight on when is the best time to travel, the best honeymoon destinations and resorts, when to book, and much more!
My fiance and I sat down and met with a local travel agent and discussed all of our honeymoon options! We were able to browse through brochures of Hawaii, the Caribbean, Mexico, and all of the other hot honeymoon spots. We already had our dream vacation in mind and ended up sticking with it... a Mediterranean Cruise! Our agent compared all of the different cruise lines and prices for us. This was extremely helpful for us as we were first time cruisers and had no idea what to expect or to look for when booking a cruise. Our agent even scored us both on board credits to use as we liked on the ship!
