In an era where internet is King, we often feel that we can be self-sufficient enough to do it all ourselves. However, if you can book your own travel, does that mean you should? There is a reason we have accountants, hair stylists, and other professionals - they are experts in their field, they understand that our time is valuable, and they are there to give us the best experience possible. The same is true for travel!
