Nowadays everyone loves to travel and they have all the requirements to travel. It is because nowadays the world economy is good and inc inclining states. As a result, people can make money easier and the value of money is even greater. We often hear about people complaining about being scammed and have problems with the travel agency that they choose. This kind of incident is not supposed to happen because it is the travel agency’s duty to take good care of their customers. So here are some essential tips when choosing a travel agency.
- Registered Travel Agency
This a very crucial tip and you have to apply it when choosing a travel agency. Make sure you check the travel agency’s status and if the agency has been registered or not. It is because every travel agency in the world must be registered at The Ministry of Tourism to make the business is legal. A registered travel agency is like a security for you when you use their services. It is because is anything goes wrong you can complain about the company at The Ministry of Tourism and they will take care of it because everything is within their power. If the travel agency is not registered then it might be difficult for the ministry office to take action since the agency’s data is not with them .
- Transparency With Customer
This is also a very important tip because most of travel agency they didn’t apply the transparency policy in their company. We often hear stories about people who purchase a full board package from one company with an amount of money but they still need to add some amount of money during or before the trip. Usually the amount that they have to add is for tipping, travel insurance, luggage, and surcharge. This kind of sales strategy is not good because if the company stated that the package is full board but the company excludes some important things from the price of the package so that the package prices look cheap but in the end the customer still needs to add an amount of money because the things that they have to pay is compulsory. As a result the customer will feel not happy and being scammed by the travel agency.
- Responsible Travel agency
Find a travel agency that take every responsibility towards their customers. A responsible travel agency will provide their customers with a very good and experienced tour leader to assist the customer during their trip so that you can feel happy and not stressed all the time while traveling because there is someone will help you if there is a problem. A good Travel agency will always prioritize and concern about their customers because if anything happens to their customer while traveling it is their responsibility. Plus, if their tour leader or employees make a mistake the travel agency will also take responsibility and will do something to make you feel good and happy again.
- The quality
Everyone in this world wants to aim for a good quality when it comes to purchasing something same goes to travel packages. The first thing you have to check is how many pax in one group trip, if the total pax in one trip is more than 30 pax then the trip is not going to be enjoyable and the quality will be a bit off. It is because when there is more than 30 pax in one group everything will take a longer time: longer time to wait your turn for the bathroom, longer time for the food to be prepared and the transportation will be packed and stuffy. Plus, not all tour leader can handle more than 30 pax alone. If the tour leader can’t handle it then everything will go haywire and the arrangement probably will not follow the itinerary. Furthermore, the hotel rates and the meals also can determine the quality of the travel packages. Try to compare what hotel rates the packages give to their customer and if the hotel makes you feel comfortable or not. In terms of meals the quality will be determined by how many course and the taste of the meals.
