Part 12 Of Series: 101 Reasons To Use A Travel Agent

Everyday there are changes in the travel industry, and the most recent are several big items that should be on everyone's radar. The top two are the Continental & United merger as well as the Southwest & Airtran merger; however, there is another very large change in travel for those who travel to Mexico, and that is the usage of pesos over U.S. dollars.

Initially reading this, a lot of people may think that's not a big deal - but it is. I've been to Mexico on numerous occasions and I'm one of those people who feel it's important to have some of the money to the country you are traveling to, but there are countless people who have traveled to Mexico and never purchased a peso in their life, unless it was given as change. Well now, they really won't have a choice. In order to get more information on this, I would recommend checking out the Mexican Embassy website for any additional information prior to travel.

  • Advice on Where to Go if You Get Sick - If you happen to be unfortunate enough to get hurt or fall ill while on your trip, your travel agent can help find you somewhere clean and safe for medical attention. (Travel Insurance - just a side note from That Chick Té)
