Traveling is one of the best feelings – yet booking a trip on your own can be the worst.

Everyone likes to try their hands at finding the best trip for them but, travel agents are your greatest ally when it comes to finding your next great adventure.

As a go-to travel source, AAA Travel experts can help you make the most out of your trip in three key ways:

  • Added value. A travel agent will make sure you get the best experience, added amenities and AAA member benefit, like shipboard credit or priority check-in. Often time, the AAA member benefit is in addition to other benefits or amenities. 
  • Consolidated airfare. Travel agents will use a variety of resources to ensure you receive the best prices on airfare. Agents can access tickets directly from the airlines at specially negotiated rates, and then resell them to travel agents or consumers for prices 20 to 70 percent lower than published fares.
  • Last-minute deals. Itching to take a trip? Travel agents get early notification of great travel deals before they are available to the public. Nothing says relaxation like a two-for-one cruise. A travel agent can help you find a deal that is not being advertised online. For example, Celebrity Cruises recently offered an airfare credit up to $1,000 for travelers who booked a European cruise.
