Last call for the travel agent? With

There has been much worry in the travel industry that the days of the high street travel agent may be numbered.

Online travel websites such as Hotels Fairy provide more choice, more transparency and often better deals from comfort and convenience of your home or office, so why would you bother spending time going to high street travel agents?

For many modern travellers, online travel guides, booking sites and comparison websites are a no brainer, but there are still many travellers that prefer the personal service that is provided by travel agents face to face.

The BBC’s travel show Fast Track recently interviewed Hotels Fairy marketing officer Jo Roberts in their investigation of the online travel industry and how it is changing the way we book our holidays.
