1. Get Referrals 

Ask your friends! Personal referrals will always give you honest insight into their customer service experience and satisfaction with their travel consultant. A good friend will never recommend a bad travel consultant.

2. Do Your Research 

Experience matters. When considering a travel consultant or agency to work with, be sure to ask how long they have been in business and what affiliations they have. A reputable agency should belong to one or more affiliations, like ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents), CLIA (Cruise Line International Association) or IATA (International Air Transport Association).
