Last year it was all about the increase in the use of agents by Millennials, according MMGY Global's annual “Portrait of American Travelers” survey. Now we kind of expect it. Millennials are using agents because they are taking some involved vacations. And they are afraid of being ripped off and there are just too many places to get information. In fact, American travelers who said they used travel agents also said they were strongly influenced by them to select hotels and resorts (83%), vacation packages and tours (79%), airlines (78%), destinations (75%), travel insurance (75%), attractions and events (74%), car rentals (69%), cruises (66%), and trains (57%). And 25% of respondents said they plan to use the services of a traditional travel agent for a vacation during the next two years. That’s up 47% from last year, when only 17% said they were likely to use an agent. Of those, 80% are likely to use a traditional agent to book vacation packages, 76% to book tours hotel or resort, 75% for destinations, 74% for airlines, 69% for cruise lines and 59% for car rentals.
