Now more than ever you need a travel agent

November 25, 2020 Business News No Comments Email Email

Travel agents around Australia are ready to help travellers make the most of the Queensland border reopening – and, as well as finding the perfect escape, by booking through a travel agent, you’ll be helping a local business that really needs your support.The Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) has been working throughout this year with domestic tourism bodies including AFTA Allied member Tourism and Events Queensland to help travel agents promote domestic deals and destinations.

Quotes attributable to AFTA CEO Darren Rudd

“The reopening of the Queensland border to Greater Sydney and hopefully Victoria from December 1 is fantastic news as we head into the peak holiday season. There are plenty of great deals, destinations and experiences on offer and our travel agents are proud to be working with Tourism and Events Queensland to promote them.”

“Now more than ever you need a travel agent. Your local travel agent can help you filter the bonanza of deals on offer to find the best holiday experience for you, navigate the ongoing COVID minefield and be your advocate should travel restrictions again be imposed.”

“Right across Australia throughout this year, travel agents time and time again have proved their value to their customers, going above and beyond to get them home, get them to their desired destination and get them their refunds and credits.”

“Travel agents are still working on behalf of their customers to repatriate $4Bn from overseas airlines, hotels and tour operators as well as using their buying power and relationships to support Australians travelling and trying to travel within Australia. They are doing this despite having negligible income due to the international travel ban. This holiday season, it’s time to reap the benefits and rewards of supporting your local travel agent.”
