High st Travel agents and call centres more pressure

High st travel agents and call centers are becoming more and more unpopular as they use high pressure techniques to make you buy there and then.. But it does not end when you leave the shop, as constant hassling phone calls make things worse..

One of the more popular techniques, to put you under pressure is silence, as in “and the Package holiday price is just £569 pp” then nothing but silence…

Holiday makers are finding the web a far more relaxing experience to purchase their holidays and flight requirements, without being bombarded with phone calls and the hassle of the travel agents shop..

If you have ever been in a busy travel agents, when a family are trying to book a holiday and the couple next to them can’t make their mind up, then phones start ringing and the agent must take the call you will know what we mean.

Then you have the call center endlessly on hold, being told that the “holiday has just gone” but they do have, as a favour to you a more expensive deal, miles from where you wanted to stay, and can they ring you back and then promptly do not…

It’s no wonder that sitting behind a computer, with a glass of wine is becoming more and more appealing. No hassle just a far more relaxing experience.
