       Getting the Most Out of Your Travel Agent

  With the rise of online travel booking engines such as Agoda and Zuji, you
might expect traditional travel agents to be looking for new careers.

  随着诸如Agoda和Zuji一类旅游产品在线预订网站的兴起,你可能会觉得传统的旅行社需要转行了。

  But not in Asia, thanks to travelers like Nicki Fung. A former Hong Kong
resident, she has relied on the same travel agent for more than a decade.

  但是因为有了Nicki Fung这样的旅行者,上述情形在亚洲并没有发生。十多年来她安排出行时找的都是同一个旅行中介。

  'If I can route through Hong Kong via Cathay Pacific, I'll try to do that
and have her handle the rest,' says Ms. Fung, who is now based in Beijing, where
she co-founded the education company Vericant.

  Fung曾经住在香港,现在住在北京,是维立克教育公司(Vericant)的创始人之一,她说:“如果我可以通过国泰航空(Cathay
Pacific)飞经香港,我会尽可能这么做然后让她处理其余的事情。”

  The reason for her loyalty? The travel agent 'thinks ahead for me,' she
says.

  是什么原因让她保持着如此的忠诚度?她说,这位旅行中介总是“想在我前头”。

  Not only does her agent, Christine Chiu of Shalom Travel, monitor seat
availability and handle last-minute schedule changes, but she also pieces
together complex itineraries.

  她的中介、平安旅行社(Shalom Travel)的Christine
Chiu不仅密切关注着航班剩余座位并帮她处理哪怕最后一分钟的日程变动,也会帮助她整合复杂的行程。

  Last summer, Ms. Fung wanted to combine a work trip to Canada and the U.S.
with a holiday with her mother to Kenya. 'It was much easier to work with my
travel agent and have her suggest things that I wouldn't have been able to find
on my own,' she says.

  去年夏天,Fung想把前往美国和加拿大的商务旅行与同母亲到肯尼亚度假结合在一起。她说:“让我的旅行中介帮忙安排事情就容易得多,她推荐的东西都是我自己不可能想到的。”

  Ms. Fung isn't alone. In Hong Kong, the number of new travel agencies
cropping up has been steadily increasing over recent years. Last year, there
were 1,683 members of the Travel Industry Council, a professional body whose
membership is required for an operating license in the territory. In 2010, there
were 1,568.

  Fung并不是个例。在香港,新增旅行社的数量在近几年稳定上升。去年,香港旅游业议会(Travel Industry
Council)的会员单位数量有1683个,2010年则是1568个。成为会员是专业机构取得营业执照的必要条件。

  'Hong Kong citizens realize that if they want attention, they have to
purchase through a licensed agent,' says Joseph Tung, the council's executive
director.

  旅游业议会总干事董耀中说:“香港居民意识到,如果他们需要得到保障,就要通过有资质的旅行社购买旅游产品。”

  Convenience, saving time, personalized service─these are all reasons why I
stuck by my travel agent in Bangkok for years, especially when it came to
booking flights. A good agent can be a godsend at a time when airlines are
coming up with greater restrictions and fees, and ever-more complex mileage
rules.

  舒适、节约时间、个性化服务──这些都是多年来我一直与我在曼谷的旅行中介合作的原因,尤其是要订机票的时候。当航线限制增多、价格上涨并且累积里程的规则更加复杂的时候,优秀的中介简直就是救星。

  My trusty agent, Mike Chan of Green Travel, had all my frequent-flier
membership numbers on file, would book tickets with mileage, and snag
upgrades.

  这位让我信赖的中介就是Green Travel的Mike Chan,他将我所有的航空公司常旅客号码记录在案,在订票的同时帮我累积里程和升舱。

  But not all travel agents are created equal. For every on-top-of-it agent,
there are plenty who do the bare minimum. That's driven Charmaine Wai, a
seasoned road warrior and director of development at INSEAD's Singapore campus,
online.

  但是并不是所有的旅行中介都水平相当。与顶尖的中介相比,有许多人做得实在是太少了。正是这一点使得Charmaine
Wai转而到网上寻求服务,她是欧洲工商管理学院(INSEAD)新加坡校区业务发展总监,也是个老道的旅行者。
