The most popular question a travel agent ever hears is: “Do you get to travel for free?” The straight answer is absolutely not. Mostly myself and my professional colleagues invest in our business by getting to know the product so we can become more informed when you come seeking our advice. When we do produce sales for our suppliers, we do build relationships with those folks empowered to assist us should there ever be a problem with one of our client’s travels. Like Mr. Wonderful says on Shark Tank, “When we pick up the phone on behalf of our clients, they DO take our call.” This is not to brag. It is just reality. We and our colleagues represent millions of dollars of business for our suppliers.
Laura and I have an opportunity for you to win $100 cash! We want you to take The Flagg Agency with you on vacation. Are you up for the challenge? Look below for full details.
This year we began giving our clients the lime green neon luggage handle grippers pictured above when they booked a vacation through us. One of our clients recently posted a picture of his luggage with our gripper attached after getting his bags in Seattle prior to his Alaska trip. When he posted the photo to his Facebook page, it gave us an idea. We want you to take us (well our luggage gripper) on vacation with you. We then want you share a photo of it while on the vacation you booked with us. Do that and you could win cash.
I have just had the scariest middle of the night phone call I have ever received*. It was 1:40 in the morning and the ringing phone startled me awake. I couldn’t comprehend what was happening until I heard my wife’s voice on the machine. She was back in Atlanta the message began, and I jumped to pick up the phone. After a lengthy weather delay, Laura’s flight had attempted to land at (an airport in Virginia). I am not clear on the exact details but apparently her plane had broken out of the clouds only to find there were no runway lights to be seen. They had to quickly attempt a go-around procedure. Again they tried to land and again there were no runway lights. Making a quick decision they returned to Atlanta.

This month, we are doing a very informal contest to give away a few of the items from our promotional closet. Last week, we posted a photo on our Facebook page and encouraged people to leave their guesses in the comments. Last Saturday, we had our daughter do the drawing while showing off the prizes. You can see it on our Youtube page (video link).
