The Internet is great for many things but it also suffers from one big disadvantage — its anonymity! You are expected to part with your hard earned money to faceless entities whose true identity you don't even know. The companies behind many popular websites may not even have an office in Ireland. Not a problem if everything is hunky dory but what happens when things go wrong?
The beauty of the Travel Bug website is that you are being connected with 'bricks & mortar' travel agents located throughout Ireland so the people ultimately looking after your travel arrangements can be contacted at all times. Not only that, but they are also happy to tell you a little bit about themselves as well to help you make an informed judgement as to whom you'd like to place your business with. The profiles listed below and on the following pages are just some of the people who would be delighted to help you plan your next trip abroad and more are being added all the time. Feel free to browse through these profiles — who knows, you may even know one of them!
