How to choose a reliable travel agency in China
This problem may appear to your mind whenever you want to go to another country for a trip.Finding a good travel agency in China is a little difficult but still possible just because there are too many agencies that want to play a leading role inthe travel market in China,result in a fierce competition.Below is something you need to pay attention to when choosing a travel agency.
Take a look at the website
I believe every travel agency has a official website for attracting more clients from internet.Is the website up to date?Is the attitude of the information about the trip fair?How does it look like?Generally speaking,a good agency won’t guarantee that the agency is honest.If the website looks great and is very functional,it's very probably that the agency is honest and long-term focused because a good website takes large investment on both time and money.A cheater won’t invest because what theyreally want is not a reputation but a money arrival as soon as possible.
Be careful of a pushy salesman
Great travel agencies who has a decent turnover and many customers doesn't need to be pushy.They will always leave you enough time to consider.Watch out for pushy salesman.This is not a rule only for travel agency but also most of companies.
Ask for a safe payment method
Western Union is great as the payment arrives in a few minutes.But the disadvantage is that you can't track the transaction.This has been used by the cheaters.They will accept Western Union as the only way of payment.Ask your travel agency if they can provide payments through wire transfer or Paypal.
Cooperate with an honest guide
Can you judge a person by his behavior and words?A guide who takes you to the shopping mall or an overpriced shops to stay for a long time is most likely someone who has cooperation with the mall.He wants you to buy more so he could earn more from the overprice you paid.This is a phenomenon happens all the time and may be the biggest problem in finding a reliable travel agency.
Pay attention to what the previous customers said
This is the most important thing you need to pay attention to.What a salesman tells you can be overrated but a customer won’t tell a lie about their experience.The only reliable way to judge if the guides are honest is to read the reviews that the previous customers left on the website of the agency you chose.Also you can check their weibo or facebook and twitter to see if they have followers.
