Dollars and sense “People tell me they can find great deals on their own,” says AAA Travel counselor Mary Allegra. “That may be, but why would you want to, when someone else is paying me to do it for you?” Agents like Allegra can save you money through discounts on tours, hotels, cruises, and more.

Perks and pluses Agents can also point you to a range of member benefits included in AAA Travel packages, from onboard cruise credits to activity vouchers, that can provide solid value over the course of a vacation.

Insights and expertise Each agent has areas of expertise. “I handle a lot of Alaska cruises,” Allegra says, “but I have some colleagues who really know Europe and others who book a lot of weddings and honeymoons.”

Previews and promotions You can find ideas and get discounts at special presentations such as On Stage Alaska, offered with the Holland America cruise line. “The events are fun and informative,” Allegra notes, “and you can get great deals.” For dates and locations, see AAA.com/goalaska.

Assurance and insurance “Working with an agent gives you peace of mind,” Allegra says. “If anything goes wrong while you’re on the road, we can help fix it for you.” AAA also sells travel insurance to protect against unexpected hitches such as lost luggage and flight cancellations.
