January is typically known as “wave season” in the travel industry. Why? January is when most people plan their annual vacations. Generally you can find some amazing deals directly from resorts, cruiselines, and most travel destinations but you will get even more bang for your vacation dollar buy booking with a travel agency. Why? Most travel agents are free to the consumer, so while you would be paying the same price for your vacation- your travel planner will ensure you have the best deal, and will be able to prepare you for your vacation in a way you could not on your own. In a nutshell- they will save you time and money so you can take a better trip.
