Travel agents are often skipped in the process of booking a holiday with many travellers cutting out the middle man and booking a vacation direct with the hotel or resort provider. This can save you money but may mean that you have to take on a lot more responsibility yourself and should anything go wrong you often have no one to turn to.
There are advantages of booking through an agent and finding a good one can be somewhat scary especially if this is the first time you have gone away. Most travel agents will offer you some sort of insurance or compensation that will be paid out should there be any hiccups whilst on holiday. Check before you leave what you are entitled to and what they will provide in terms of emergency accommodation or flight changes if required. Read a few reviews on an travel agent before using thm and do not always just go with the cheapest.
