Top15 Reasons To Avoid Booking Online without the help of GTI Travel 1. Chances are high you get over-charged or get the wrong information. You can be rerouted to dozens of websites that handle your travel with hidden charges that you don’t even see until you have put your credit card in, they show you the fare charged and if its higher than what was quoted earlier 2. Time spent Domestic 50 states travel- It can take hours to get to what you need. Then it may be missing information which you then find out from the traveler you may be doing it for 3. Time spent International- It can take hours, sometimes days, to compile inconsistent and wrong information. You can occasionally, if lucky, research it correctly, but not quickly. 4. You miss lower costs on alternate airlines 5. You miss lower cost airports that may be nearby 6. You miss alternate day selections that give you the same time there but could save hundreds of dollars 7. You get booked on connections because you may be on the wrong site, when there may be non-stops ate similar or even lower pricing 8. You have no idea of how you can drop fares to lower levels that only an experienced travel agent will be able to advise of if it applies 9. On International bookings, you may get hit for thousands extra because you are not researching what you should be in options and routing alternatives 10. You have no one to quickly contact for help or assistance for when there are problems. There will be problems 11. You could be in violation of corporate travel policy with what you have booked and have no idea. We have the ability to limit the amount of company executives allowed on any one aircraft to insure that there is no safety risks in case of aircraft required service that makes sure that not too many company executives are on the same plane. 12. You have no expert agency using quality control that continues to try and improve your fare, seat, and clear any waitlists. Flights are operating at 75% capacity, this will be a valuable feature. 13. Of Importance. We can immediately identify where travelers are located (city & country) in case of emergency. IE: 911 we had a report to every account within a short amount of time and in advance of airport closures. We were able to let our accounts know where their employees were that booked travel through us. 14. WEATHER- When there is snow, ice, the airline phones and the phones of the large internet agencies are very jammed. We arrange backups and re-ticketing which if you done this booking yourself online, you will find yourself in a VERY long line at the airport and in all likelihood, put on some backup flight that could be a day or 2 later. With us, they just call us and in short order are rebooked/ticketed. 15. THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE. You are not a Professional travel agent.  www.gtitravel.com
