travel agents?
Is it cheaper to use a travel agent than to put the time in myself several times each day trying to find a low rate to ogg from phx?

Typically, using a travel agent is a bit more expensive. Travel agents need to make more money, they do not get the amount of sales and they have to service the customer, so there are service fees.

However, there are great reasons to use travel agents at times. If you need service, and need someone to help you plan your stay, answer questions like refunds, cancellation fees, or local info, a travel agent will often be able to give you better service. Also, travel agents usually know who they are talking to and can sense what type of traveler you are.

All in all, Travelgrove helps people answer some questions, like finding a trip efficiently, getting some answers fast or reviewing general information. Just like Google does for general topics.
