More Resons why should you use a Travel Agent
- We have access to negotiated wholesale rates with airlines worldwide and these rates are not generally on the internet
- We have expert knowledge of all airlines on all routes so we will constantly compare airlines with each other to get the best offer. Same applies to hotel rates around the world – more often than not our contracted hotel suppliers are cheaper than booking with each hotel directly. We know what hotels are in the best location and at the best price for each booking requirement.
- Internet fees for credit cards/date changes/name changes/route changes fees can be quite substantial, we understand how these operate and achieve savings for the client.
- We are familiar with the myriad of confusing check-in, baggage, seat and priority boarding charges and we know how to exploit these to your advantage.
- Many of our airline fares are refundable whereas internet fares are generally non-refundable.
- As we have access to all the airfares via one reservations system, your staff won't have to spend time visiting dozens of websites for fare comparisons.
- Staff by human nature will choose the flight that suits them, not the company budget.
- By using Platinum Travel, we will save you a huge amount of administration time and labour throughout the booking process.
- Platinum Travel are a fully licensed and bonded travel agent so you have a lot more protection with us than with the internet (airlines are not bonded).
- We provide a 24 hour emergency number 7 days a week, 365 days a year – Particularly useful with recent events such as "The Volcano" and the collapse of 1800 hotels. We get you home!
- As a travel agent, we are your advocate. When things go wrong, we are on your side, not theirs!
