Travel agents have changed tremendously over the years
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 6, 2010
A new online company is making it possible for travelers to have their cake and eat it, too. At TripWitt.com, consumers pore over the profiles of Travel Professionals who specialize in destinations and specific types of travel such as cruises, multi-generational travel, destinations weddings, or a host of other areas. Once they've met their match, a custom itinerary can be developed that maximizes the Travel Pro's expertise and leverages the consumer's buying power.
"Travel agents have changed tremendously over the years," says Celeste Koutavas, President of TripWitt.com and an 18 year Travel Professional herself. "They travel extensively and are completely immersed in their products. Why spend your valuable time researching travel options when they can do it for you and, in most cases, already have?"
Today's well-educated and accredited Travel Professionals are price-competitive with online booking engines and bring the value add of insider knowledge to their consumer clients. Savvy shoppers who want the best from their destination will benefit extensively from a TripWitt.com match.
"Do-it-yourself isn't always better, especially for those to whom time is money," continues Koutavas. "Our Travel Pros advocate for their clients in ways a booking engine can't. If the price is equal, it makes sense to go for that extra level of service we provide."
Access to TripWitt.com is free to consumers via an engaging web interface; Travel Professionals pay a fee to list their profile. Visitors to the web site can currently browse more than thirty travel types and review hundreds of destinations.
