Studies have proven the need for a professional travel advisor in a world that has been drastically affected by covid. The public is turning away from Online Travel Agencies (“OTA”) because when the world of travel turned upside down due to the pandemic those individuals had no one to turn to for advocacy on their behalf. However, the client of a travel agency simply had to make one call to their travel advisor and everything was handled from that point on. Refunds. Rebooks. Lifts and Shifts. Travel advisors solidified the commitment to the client and always had their best interest at heart. Anyone that booked through an OTA was left to fend for themselves, hold for 8, 9, 10+ hours and only to be disconnected or told they could file for a refund/rebook online. It is predicted the resurgence of a travel advisor is going to be stronger and in greater need than ever before!
