Denver area travel agencies talk about trip planning tips

Why should people plan a trip through a travel agency?

John Akers: "There are guarantees that come with working with an agency."

Jeff Gregory: "Time savings. They can put the responsibility in the hands of a professional."

William Rogers: "To make travel easy and to make the world smaller for people."

How do you charge?

John Akers: "Most of the time, it's by commission. If it's just an airline ticket, we charge a $30 fee."

Jeff Gregory: "We get paid by the suppliers who provide the travel package. If it's just airline tickets, we charge $30."

William Rogers: "We charge 7 percent of the airline price."

How far in advance should people plan trips?

John Akers: "I would say two to three months out. At that stage you're probably going to get the best airfare."

Jeff Gregory: "Three months would be good advice."

William Rogers: "Three months or ahead is OK."

What's one place you recommend everyone visit?

John Akers: "In the United States, one place they should visit is Washington, D.C."

Jeff Gregory: "Our top seller is the Riviera Maya area south of Cancun."

"I would advise South Africa."

Are more vacationers turning to Internet travel sites instead of agencies?

John Akers: "We're not going to compete with that market. Some people will always use a travel agency."

Jeff Gregory: "I think there's room in the marketplace for both."

William Rogers: "Most people go online before visiting agencies. We have a website, so people can use ours."
