Kev's blogging time is limited at the moment, so here’s an open question to Travo readers from the Travel Weekly Blog.
In each issue of Travel Weekly we interview a prominent person about their travel habits.
This week, ECPAT UK director Chris Beddoe gave us the following response when we asked whether she books online or with an agent:
Definitely online, because the only time I have to think about holidays is after 10pm.
Where does that leave smaller agencies?
Do they try to compete online by investing in better web services - e.g. adding supplier data feeds to their site?
Or do they play to their traditional strengths, emphasising in their marketing that an agent could be exactly what someone with very little time to think about holidays needs?
Even worse, do they have to admit that someone in Beddoe's situation is lost to them?
Do your worst: I'll feature some of your responses in a post on the Travel Weekly Blog.
