Role of Travel Agency in India Tourism
By:Nikita Martin <articles@rg-ideas.com>

Hassle-free traveling is what every tourist wants. A country like India can provide so many wonderful vacation and tour options, but the lack of proper information and facts can ruin any holiday plans. Many people save money throughout their lives in order to have a dream vacation in an exotic land like India but unorganized and ill-planned tours steal the fun out of the holidays. It is always wise to take the help of a travel agent while planning a tour to India or any country in order to make the most out of a tour. In this article, we will discuss about what to ask and what to know about a travel agency in India.

Things to know about any Travel Agent in India

So you have decided to have a tour of India and want to make the most out of your time and money. We are assuming that you have already done your research about the tourist destinations in India, and now you want to take the help of an Indian tour operator to organize your tour. But before you approach any tour operator, there are certain things you should also know about your operator.

The first thing to inquire about is that tour operator government recognized? This can save you from all those frauds that target innocent tourists. The second thing to find out is that how experienced is this agent? Experienced operators are always a far better choice than any newbie. Third thing to know is what are their specialties? Some may be great in organizing group tours, other many excel in customized travel packages and so on. The reviews of those who have already traveled with them may also come-in handy. These details may seem small, but they can save you from a lot of unwanted troubles.

Things to ask to the Travel Agent in India

After choosing your tour organizer by following the above methods, it is now time to have a detailed discussion with tour organizer. India has so much to show to its tourists that a single tour is never going to be enough in order to understand this amazing land. Since there are many different options to choose from, it is important to summarize where you want to go and what you want to see.

Apart from the general things like hotel reservation, ticket bookings, etc. there are few additional things that are mostly over-looked by the tourists while planning a tour. The first thing to ask is how many destinations will be covered in the tour if it’s a package tour. A Golden Triangle Tour (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur) with a tour of other cities of Rajasthan is always better then visiting only destination. Second thing would be the price. Not everyone is a millionaire, and unnecessary expenses would be the least-favorite thing for any tourist. So it is better to ask for the rough estimation of the total cost in advance. Third thing to ask is about the extra activities to do during the leisure time. Sometimes a day tour ends before the estimated time, and the spare time is not fully utilized. You can also add in more questions according to your requirements. These little things reduce the chances of unwanted halt during the tour.
