What to Look for in a Travel Agent

Posted on September 19, 2016

Arpin gets quite a few calls from travelers seeking out an agent for a last-minute trip, and sometimes it’s because the agent they used before us didn’t meet their expectations. We love to go above and beyond for our clients, and have a few signs that you’ve found the perfect travel agent for you.

They ask the right questions

Going into a meeting with an agent, you might have a list of activities or places you would like to go. A great agent will ask you why you are traveling, where you would like to travel, your preferred dates, and other specifics to proactively create an outline for your trip.
