How Much Does It Cost To Engage a Travel Agent?
For the most part, Baker View Consulting does not have general service costs. One exception is when only airfare is booked with nothing else. Why? The airlines have determined that they do not need to pay commissions to travel agents. Our normal fee is $20.
The other exception is the initial $50 research fee. However, once we get to the point of booking your vacation, that gets fully refunded to you. Unfortunately, this is in place as some folks take our work on then go book their own vacation. While we don’t mind helping, we still need to be reimbursed for our services.
What about everything else?
Baker View Consulting is paid a commission from hotels, cruise lines, rental car companies, and tour operators. If we wrap a total package for you, we don’t need to charge the airline fee since everything is being put together.
So remember, you can do all your own work and research for your vacation. Baker View Consulting can assist you in that work and make sure you are getting all the best deals and values you can. We will help you track your deposit dates and ensure you and your family can have a stress free vacation!
We can track the best excursions for your trip. This includes getting experience from the Dugan’s Travel family of other agents that have either gone personally or their clients experiences. They gladly share who to use and who to avoid at all costs.
The most important part is telling us what your ideal vacation is and what you are looking to experience. All within your budget!
