"Do people still use travel agents?"
That's a question we get asked a lot at the American Society of Travel Advisors. Our members—travel advisors themselves—often get asked the same. Of course, the numbers say the answer is yes! Travel advisors are an important piece of the travel ecosystem and our supplier proud partners at cruise lines, tour operators, airlines and hotels all know the value travel advisors have for their business!
Elaine Glusac decided to ask that same question in her piece for National Geographic.
Of course, she too found out the answer was a resounding yes!
"Yes—and now they’re called travel advisors," Glusac said. "They could be more helpful than you may think."
