About The Theme:
Itrek believes that Travel Agents days are well and truly numbered. A large percentage of their margins are made by "bolting on" travel insurance products to customer's flight bookings. Some Travel Agents are taking margins of around 50% on their Travel Insurance policies. The time has come for the public to see that there is an alternative, by going online and taking the Travel Agent
out of the equation completely. This 'alternative' could save you up to 50% on the costs. More and more people are going online to purchase their flights, hotel accommodation and now, their travel insurance too. The travel agent really is dead!
