“Travel Agencies help their clients to make the best possible travel arrangements.” Given the statement, write any two functions of a Travel Agent.
Travel agents offer advice on planning itineraries, transportation, hotel accommodations, car rentals, tours etc. for their clients. Travel agents are also expected to be able to advise travellers about their destinations, such as the weather conditions, local ordinances and customs, attractions, and exhibitions. For those travelling internationally, the agents also provide information on customs duty regulations, required documents (passports, visas, and certificates of vaccination), travel advisories, and currency exchange rates. In the event of changes in the itinerary in the middle of a trip, travel agents intervene on the traveller’s behalf to make alternate booking arrangements etc.
