Are travel agents relevant for internation flights? We have usually booked our own flights via websites and have had no issues. Friends suggested we use an agent to get better deals, so i called two that were recommended and received quotes that were no better than the website promoted. So I was wondering about the thoughts of my fellow travellers. Appreciate the input-Actually sometimes you will find on-line travel agencies that can offer discount fares on certain carriers but it's far easier these days to sit at home on your computer and check out the various possibilities than it is to stop by the neighborhood travel agency; especiallyh since commissions from airlines have been reduced to 0 and they now charge for their services in most instances!
