Why You Should Always Use a Travel Agent

Travel Agents are still a thing??  We hear it all the time!  The rise of the internet was supposed to signal the demise of the travel agent, but we are not your father’s travel agency!  Sharon Carr Travel is a finely tuned machine, powered by more than 45 years as Leaders in the Travel Industry.  Travel is complex and constantly changing, we’re on top of all that so you don’t have to be!

Here’s a quick list of just a few of the reasons to always use a Travel Agent:

  • It doesn’t cost you anything! We don’t charge fees, our expertise is free for you!
  • Our Expertise includes many destinations and all types of travel products from cruises to tours to air/car/hotel. Are you familiar with “obstructed category” cabins, a “Rule 240” when you have a canceled flight, do you know to ask for military, state, AARP, past passenger and other benefits?  Well your travel agent is!
  • Corporate Travel is complex and if your employees are booking their own travel, we are sure you’re finding it difficult to track spending, and that you are leaving value on the table. Call us today to find out about our amazing American Express Corporate Travel Benefits!
  • Group Travel… also complex. Take the weight off your shoulders and let a Sharon Carr Travel Agent plan your family vacation, wedding, incentive trip, or whatever your needs may be!
  • It doesn’t cost you anything! Seriously, vendors pay us commissions, thus our service is completely free.
  • We’ll tell you if you’re barking up the wrong tree. If you call a cruise line directly, they won’t tell you that their competitor is a better fit for you and your travel needs.  We focus on your particular needs, and make sure you are booking the best option to meet those needs.  We want you as our client forever, and that’s a built in incentive for us to find you the best value… every time
  • We have clout & muscle, and you have a safety net. We are a top account with the biggest airlines, cruise lines & tour companies in the world.  What this means is that they want to keep us happy, and they do that by keeping you happy.  When a Sharon Carr Travel Agent talks, they listen!
  • It doesn’t cost you ANYTHING!! All this expertise, decades of personal experience with destinations and products and it’s all completely free to you.  It’s like some kind of utopia.

We are a top account with the biggest airlines, cruise lines & tour companies in the world.  What this means is that they want to keep us happy, and they do that by keeping you happy.

Still on the fence?  Listen to some happy clients!
