Travel can be a rich, rewarding, fun experience…or it can become a nightmare. Serendipity and pure chance are unforeseeable elements that a traveler cannot control, but a well-planned itinerary is the most effective way to improve the odds that your trip is as stress-free, glitch-free and headache-free as possible. Seasoned travelers may be experts at planning every nuance of their journey; however, many people prefer to work with a trusted travel agency. Keep in mind, when choosing an agent, that some have agreements with travel companies while others are totally independent; some may tack on various fees for delivery of tickets, and different agencies charge different rates for services. There are many reputable travel agencies in the Philadelphia area from which to choose.
