First off, great article. Secondly, it's awesome to see that there are others who understand the importance of supporting others who work and try their best to provide comfort and conditions.

It's a tough job for me! I'm proud of people who can fulfil it and make other people happy.

TBH, I prefer to travel on my own. Because it's cheaper.

I urgently need to fly to Canada for work. I work in one large IT company and I am sent on a business trip. Someone knows good visa agencies. I need a Canadian work visa

90% of my travel is done through a travel agency. I tell them is when I want to leave and come back. They book the cheapest flights and cars. They usually get better deals than I would get booking through a site myself. The only thing I dont normally go through them for is hotels, I get a much lower rate than they can get.

Its much more convient if you travel a lot, you dont have to worry about anything. If anything happens en route or if I have to change my flight one call and its taken care of. I dont have to wait on hold.

Especially now, we need to engage the services of people who know what they are talking about.  Who wants to get stranded abroad with no insurance cover?

Julian, are you talking from experience? I ask only that my husband is adamant we don't go abroad this summer as we won't have insurance. Have you managed to get some? Or do you think it is ok to go abroad if we use a travel agent for the booking etc.

I'm speaking from having worked in the industry for many years and the amount of people who don't have appropriate cover is astounding.  I can't answer your question because it depends on where you are going and what you are going for.  You need to contact your travel insurance company and they will confirm depending on the policy you have.
