I am having issues figuring out the best way to go about booking travel for my honeymoon at the end of August (right in the middle of Labour Day weekend in order to add to the degree of difficultyl). We are planning on leaving from Manitoba and going to a combination of Vancouver and Seattle.
I made initial contact with a local travel agent, and provided her with basic parameters for the trip, including length of stay of budget and kind of a round about of what we wanted to accomplish. She came back and managed to somehow obliterate our budget (which had been set after some research of our own) as well as decrease the length of the trip, which has left a bad taste in my mouth and questioning if I even want to attempt to find another travel agent.
My question would be, for the services I want, which would be essentially be booking hotels and flights, would it be worth it to go with a travel agent? Can they find me significantly better hotels at better prices than I could as a tech savvy individual?
