Does Canberra still have proper travel agents?

By johnboy 6 January 2012 26

I’m in need of a travel agent who can make serious recommendations.

Are there any proper agents in Canberra rather than trained operators of airline websites?

What’s Your opinion?

Ask this question here -> http://www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au you’ll quickly find out a lot of the trick and traps for using frequent flyer points (eg depending on how you use them, the same flight in the same class could cost you 60,000 points or 700,000 points)

Thea Robens at Flight Centre Belconnen is a gem amongst travel agents. She has a world of experience and is particularly good at finding unusual options to get you where you need to go at the best price or to simply value add to your trip (eg fares from Australia to Europe that allow you to stop in North America and/or Asia for a different stopover). She will also warn you about less that reputable airlines and hotels.

That said, no travel agent is going to replace your own research. The web is a wonderful repository of travel information and you should go into an agent fully armed with the information you need.

Another alternative is to look at “travel hacking”. There are some fantastic websites out there which will teach you how to get great travel experiences on the cheap using purchased frequent flyer miles (eg $2400 for First Class return to Europe). Sites like onemileatatime.net and viewfromthewing.com will point you in the right direction if you want to do the work here.
