10 Reasons to Ditch Travel Agents: Exploring Alternatives for Independent Travel

Ditch Travel Agents?

This blog is dedicated to promoting and spreading the Triplannerr project.

After the pandemic of 2020/21, the tourism industry has once again become one of the most profitable worldwide.

The number of tourists traveling within their own countries or moving to foreign countries is constantly increasing. However, the positive trend does not match the revenue recorded by Tour Operators, Travel Agencies, or Travel Agents.

The explanation is very simple: the majority of tourists and travelers no longer turn to them but organize their trips and vacations independently, avoiding all intermediaries.  

Ditching travel agents is a new trend resulting from the natural evolution of tourists who are now accustomed to using the internet for organizing themselves.

The aim of Travel Maker and the Triplannerr project is to provide all these tourists with a new, innovative, and free tool to organize their trips independently, avoiding all intermediaries and saving on travel costs.

Professionals in the tourism sector (including travel agents) will find in the Triplannerr project a new tool to promote their professionalism and services, renewing a now obsolete work method that is bound to change (and to extinct) due to the new purchasing habits of tourists.

Introduction:

Are you ready to discover why you should say goodbye to traditional travel agents and embrace the freedom to organize your trips? In this article, we will delve into 10 detailed reasons to abandon old practices and explore alternative solutions for traveling independently.

Ditch Travel Agents: Why? 


Reason 1: Freedom to Organize Trips on Your Own

The main advantage of organizing trips on your own is the total freedom to decide where to go, what to do, and how to do it.
 
The key is the use of apps and online platforms that put control in your hands, allowing you to customize your itinerary according to your desires.

This Blog will provide you with dozens of articles explaining (in every detail) how to use apps, websites, and tools easily found online to replace the work that travel agents used to do.

The Triplannerr Project will be the definitive solution that will allow you to organize all your trips entirely independently.

Reason 2: Customized Planning with Apps and Online Platforms

Take advantage of apps and online platforms that offer advanced planning tools.

These tools allow you to find destinations most suited to your interests, create detailed itineraries, and access travel advice directly from the online community.

Reason 3: Economic Savings with Exclusive Offers and Online Discounts

Abandoning traditional travel agents means saying goodbye to extra commissions.

Use specialized websites and apps that offer exclusive deals and discounts on flights, accommodations, and activities. Economic savings are in your hands.

Reason 4: Unique and Authentic Experiences through Traveler Reviews

Rather than relying on brochures and catalogs, search for online reviews written by other travelers.

Unique and authentic experiences emerge from the real stories and opinions of those who have already traveled the path you are about to embark on.

The Triplannerr project is based on altruism and the free and spontaneous sharing of information gathered during travels.

We go beyond reviews and provide everything you need to repeat experiences testified by real people, adapting them to your personal needs.

All this through “Travel Reports” that every user registered with Triplannerr can publish at the end of their travel experience.

Reason 5: Exploring without Constraints, Doing What You Love with Flexible Itineraries

By organizing independently, you enjoy the flexibility to make last-minute changes without having to face complex bureaucratic procedures.

Change your itinerary, discover unexpected places, and tailor your trip to your desires.

Using Triplannerr to organize your trips will allow you to find inspiration from “Travel Reports” published by other travelers.

The internal search engine will enable you to find experiences similar to what you want to live in your destination aligned with your budget within seconds!

Reason 6: Handling Travel Crises with Flexibility and Online Support

In emergency situations, flexibility is crucial. With online solutions, you have immediate access to assistance and resources, addressing travel crises without having to wait for responses or solutions from third parties.

This Blog is constantly updated, and you will find dozens of articles explaining how to handle emergencies, recover the money you spent (in case of disservices or cancellations not dependent on you), or how to relate in the most correct way with the giants of international tourism.

Reason 7: Eliminating Additional Commissions and Saving on Direct Bookings

Direct bookings through official websites of hotels, airlines, and tourist activities eliminate extra commissions charged by travel agents.

Save on costs and get more affordable rates without intermediaries.

One of the most-read articles ever on this Blog is “How NOT to use Booking to save” – an example among many that will help you spend as little as possible while getting the most out of your budget!

Reason 8: Authentic Connections with the Traveler Community via Social Networks

Join travel-focused social networks and connect with a global community of travelers.

Share experiences, exchange tips, and receive valuable information directly from the source, creating authentic connections with other travel enthusiasts.

Triplannerr is precisely this: a new Social Network where travel (not people) is the center around which everything revolves!

Reason 9: Deepening Cultural Knowledge with Online Local Guides

Take advantage of online local guides, often more authentic and current than traditional ones.

Interact with the local culture through the voices of residents, discovering hidden places and authentic traditions.

You can find a practical example of how to do this by reading the post I dedicated to Google Guide, one of the most interesting and innovative services in the (free) universe of Google.

Reason 10: Contributing to a Global Traveler Community and Sharing Experiences

By actively participating in independent organization, you contribute to creating a global community of travelers. Share your experiences to help other travelers plan their trips independently, creating a lasting bond with the community.

For this reason, I invite you to join the Triplannerr project!

By sharing your travel experiences, you will help other tourists organize their trips independently, and at the same time, you can consult an immense database to organize your travels entirely independently!

Conclusion: Join Us to Revolutionize the Way of Traveling

If you’re reading this blog, you’re an adventurous traveler, and I want to invite you to experience something unique. We are forming a Community of Travelers who will exclusively try out the new digital platform we’ve created to organize and plan trips and vacations entirely autonomously, avoiding all forms of intermediation.

“We believe that the free and spontaneous sharing of information is the key to making ‘traveling’ a habit achievable by everyone.”

When you return from a trip, you possess valuable information: Hotels, Restaurants, Tour Guides, the experiences you’ve had!

These are pieces of information you will never use again, but they are indispensable for someone who wants to take a journey similar to yours.


If you’ve lived an unforgettable experience, you’ve brought home all the information necessary to replicate it!

So, why not share it?


Why not leave other travelers the information you’ve gathered on the spot or during your experience?

This way, others can save time (and money) and live travel experiences based on your stories. We want to create a database of information available to everyone.

Join the project, and you too can find the information needed to plan your next trip with the help of the community! We are creating a digital platform where you can find (and exchange) all the necessary information to plan and organize trips and vacations completely autonomously!

All this thanks to the “principle of sharing” and the solidarity among travelers who share information collected during their travel experiences.

If you want to participate in the final phase of the development of this new digital platform and become a Beta Tester (for free) by sending feedback, suggestions, and new ideas…
