There are many misconceptions about how a travel agent earns their money. The first one is you, the client, pays your Travel Agent for their services. NOT TRUE. Some Travel Agents charge their clients for everything; here at Traveler's Edge we are paid by most suppliers. When you book a tour, rent a car or take a cruise we get paid by the Tour Operator, the Car Rental Company or the Cruise Line. Since most of the Airline Carriers no longer pay any commission to Travel Agents, we charge $25 for each airline ticket.
Another myth about Travel Agents is that we only do airline tickets and cruises. That is NOT TRUE. We can handle all of your travel needs. We book escorted tour packages, individual packages, car rentals and hotel accommodations all around the world.
Next time you, your family or friends are planning a vacation or business trip give us a call here at Traveler's Edge, 972-530-3649 or if out of town call us toll free at 1-800-GO-2-EDGE.

In the past few years more and more travelers think they can find a better deal online. Whether it be at a Big Internet travel provider or just an Individual agency running a special. If you book online, be careful that you are getting what you want. Another agent recently told me that a client called from the airport, they had decided to purchase their tickets online, got to the airport and found out they booked San Jose, California instead of San Jose del Cabo, oops.
Here at Traveler's Edge, we always strive to find what you are looking for. If it's lowest price, we look for that. If it's the best deal (whatever that means), we look for that. We believe our fees are fair and reasonable.
We understand if you don't want to pay the fee for an airline ticket and if you are comfortable purchasing these online no problem. But why not let us help with your accommodations, transportation and activities once you reach your final destination.
