    Thanks for this inside look at a Travel Agents Screen, and explaining why it is better to book in advance. I can see this will be a very enlightening series.

    Awesome! Which screen are you looking at by the way? Is that a private screen only travel agents can see?

      Yup. There’s a global system that all travel agents use and it communicates with all the airlines. This is a system that has been developed for the company I work for and it sits over the global system and talks to it-it’s way easier than the other one although I still have to use that sometimes too.

    Besides the cheaper fares going to the early bird- book accommodations at the last minute in a busy place may be costly. If you have a last minute fare deal- before you book it get yourself a place to stay. Nothing worse than arriving somewhere with no place to stay and no room at the inn.

      Agreed. Often sites like lastminute.com will have good deals when hotels are trying to fill rooms, but when traveling during school holidays and peak seasons like Christmas/New Years it’s definitely best to make sure you’ve organized accommodation.

    Haha, I am a last minute flight booker… sometimes it works in my favor though. For me flexibility is more valuable as I change my mind so often…
