Good travel agent in SydneyHi folks. I'm hoping someone can recommend a good travel agent in Sydney or nearby? I'm planning to start travelling on a regular basis (at least twice a year overseas) and the travel agent I have used previously is now overseas. I'd like to stick to one travel agent who can arrange my bookings to various locations, and would love to hear from anyone who knows a good one. Please, no Flight Centre recommendations - I've never had a good experience with them. Thanks so much!

3Be your own travel agent dude!
It is much cheaper as agents don't necessary give you the best deal and don't necessarily search every airline website for you. Their airline search engine is flawed.
I did part of a travel agent's course once.
A couple hours on the computer can save you heaps.
Get lessons if you don't know how to search.
Or put up your desired itinerary on this site and some TT enthusiast may give you a few tips.

6I use a travel agent for overseas flights, the rest I do myself. I figure if the advertised web price is $1,000, a ta will charge $1,000 - may as well support small business, even if they do only get a small commission these days.
as to a good ta in sydney - sorry can't help. I use Jetset here but it isn't necessarily the brand that it is good, it is the person you are actually dealing with.

7Have to agree with previous posters. I did use a local travel agent once when I planned my second interstate holiday. But since then I have learnt to use a computer and now do it all myself. My last trip was to four Asian countries and I asked on TT about Chinese airlines, booking trains etc. Received very good advice.
