October 16, 2010 | Posted in Tips to Get Cheap Fare

Travelling being a wonderful experience should be planned with utmost care and patience. Do not plan any of your trips hurriedly otherwise it will lose its glory. Take time out and systematically proceed for your trip as everything needs to be perfect. A perfectly planned trip is worth enjoying. Now take a back sit and let all your worries bug your travel agent. Those days are gone when you had to plan all the nitty gritties of a trip. Now is the age of relaxing as everything will be managed by your travel agent. But before that you have to find a reputed travel agency that can efficiently design vacations and trips for its clients and if required will also provide customized travel plans for those customers who want something different in their trips to make it a lifetime experience.

Negotiating Travel Fares with Travel Agents While planning for your trips, make sure you negotiate with your travel agent about the prices of the fares. Ask them if they could reduce some of the amount of the actual fare price or not. This would not be possible if you are dealing with them over the phone or through the internet as face to face interaction would be more effective.

This is the problem of the travelers of the present generation that they always vouch on the internet for getting their bookings done. Such a habit keeps them away from understanding the working principle of every travel agent. A lot of the travelers sometimes just pick a travel company and find for the best deals. If this procedure does not work out, then only they look for a travel agent. But one should understand the role of a travel agent in whipping up the prices of costly travel fare to a large extent.

Try on to these simple steps to negotiate with a travel agent:-

  • At first visit the travel agency to make sure that you is dealing with the right people.
  • Inquire about the different transportation fares available as well as a comparison of the fares.
  • After a bit of inquiry start negotiating with them maintaining a composed tone.
  • Ask them to provide a complete detail of the ticket rates on which they are fixed.
  • Start bargaining right away and do it with calmness without being too rude to them.
