|About AITO agents
Members of AITO Specialist Travel Agents are not linked to any of the large travel conglomerates. Unlike the major High Street chains they are not under pressure to meet head office sales targets for their own tour operator’s products and can concentrate solely on finding the best holiday for you at the most competitive price.
Many of our members are small, family run businesses whose proprietors have a lifetime’s experience in travel. Their knowledge and experience is freely available to you, without bias and with no obligation. Their close links to the Association of Independent Tour Operators gives members access to a wide range of specialist products, not available through the large travel retailers.
In addition, members offer a full travel service which usually includes airport parking and hotels, car hire, rail tickets, insurance, overseas hotels, flights, ferry tickets, theatre breaks and much, much more. Why spend your time thumbing through the classified ad’s or hopping from one travel agent to the next when your AITO Specialist Travel Agent can put together all aspects of your holiday?
By using an independent agent you are building a relationship with someone who knows your preferences and can advise accordingly and if there is a problem with your holiday you always have access to the boss. Try ringing the MD of one of the big travel companies, or complaining to a television screen!
