Travel agents. Ok so you don’t usually pay for the service that a travel agent provides. However, if you spend some time researching your destination, you can easily find activities and places to stay that will suit your needs (Without any hidden incentives thathave). Unless you want nothing to do with planning and aren’t really on a budget, you probably should avoid using travel agents.
. Don’t forget about travel insurance! So many people have a “nothing can happen” attitude, and then something happens. There are reasonable rates that can keep you covered, but for long-term travel I strongly recommend the best coverage you can get. It really does pay off in the long run if and when accidents happen.
