How can a Travel Agent help me?
The Best Deals
It’s no more expensive to use a Travel Agent and we can often save you money by looking for the best routes and seasonal deals only a Travel Agent has access to. Sometimes a deal might appear cheap online, but you need to understand restrictions and additional fees that are often buried in online bookings. A good Travel Agent will make sure it really is a good deal for you. There are no additional charges for using a Travel Agent.
Many popular booking sites do not include all airlines or all accommodation options in their bookie engine. You might be missing out on the best itinerary for you if you just use online options. Generally a Travel Agent will have access to all deals plus more. We can go above and beyond and find the best choices for your trip. A great Travel Agent can do much better work for you than an online booking site.
Only an experienced travel industry expert who has travelled the world can recommend the best destinations and the best routes. Rather than you spending hours online searching for the best deals, working out where to stay and how to get there, let us know what you are looking for and we can recommend the best options for you. If you are planning a multi-stop trip or have a complicated itinerary, we will really make your life easier.
Progress Travel Client Testimonials
"My daughter and I travelled to Europe earlier this year and needed to change our flights home urgently. I texted Jo the details that evening and by the time we had woken up, we were confirmed on the next flight out and on our way home. I couldn’t have done that myself overseas and after hours. It was such a relief to have someone take care of it for us. Our family have been using Progress Travel to book our holidays for years now and everything always runs smoothly. I recommend them to all my friends, it’s so much better than dealing with all the flights and hotels myself, in particular if something needs to be changed."
"I’ve had such great service from Jo over the years that my whole extended family now uses Progress Travel. Jo has done so much for us all, from ensuring my niece’s honeymoon was perfect, to getting my sister home from New York at extremely short notice, to organising my parents post-retirement journey through Europe, to recommending and booking solo travel for me when I just give her my availability, budget and a vague idea of the kind of experience I’m after. Jo’s knowledge, advice and fantastic service means that you can rest assured knowing that every detail of your trip has been taken care of."
"After organising small interstate tours for my futsal club, I was confident in working with Jo-Anne on larger projects, such as the annual FFV Futsal Tour to the FFA Nationals in Sydney. The logistics of taking 160 people on tour is daunting, as many things can go wrong. However, due to Jo Anne’s experience and attention to detail, we overcame many obstacles to ensure the tour was a great success. There were no issues with the flights, the accommodation or the transfers. Everything just flowed according to our planning. Jo Anne is now working on the FFV Futsal’s first overseas sports trip and I am sure that will be successful as well. I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone Jo Anne’s Progress Travel."
"Jo from Progress Travel is great and we have used her for booking several trips overseas for our extended family in the past 9 years. Our travel plans have always flowed beautifully. Jo has accessed some great deals for us such a wonderful eco-friendly villa overlooking the rice paddies in Ubud, Bali to the penthouse suite for my daughters honeymoon at Siri Panwa Pukhet! We are off to the UK and Spain mid May for 7 weeks and Jo got us the best early bird airfares."
"Progress Travel arranged a cycling trip to New Zealand for a friend and I. Everything was so easy… from the flights to transfers and the cycle tour. We had the best time and travelled to places that we might not have found if it wasn’t for the recommendation. A big thanks to Jo and the team at Progress Travel, I will definitely use them again!"
