6 False Assumptions About Travel Agents.


The decision to study abroad is often a result of years of planning, but if you’re like me it can also be a spur of the moment decision. What I came to understand is that planning to study abroad is a enormous process that requires your effort, time, and sometimes money.

Here are what two of our clients said earlier about their fear before they met us:

 “I discovered that I had two choices: to research and apply directly to universities on my own or go through an international education travel agent. Despite my cynicism and doubts, I decided I would go with an agency because I was short of time and I didn’t know where to begin. All I knew was that I wanted to study at a good university in Canada. Then a family friend recommended Luxair Travels and Tours to me and I’m glad I listened.”


“There are a lot of stereotypes surrounding international travels and tours consultants and agents. However, I’m currently studying at my dream university in UK and opting to check-in with a Luxair Travels and Tours was the best decision I’d ever made.”


I know there are a lot of you who might be at crossroads from mixed reviews about travel agencies. While I can’t tell you about all international education agents, but for Luxair Travels and Tours I’m wrting to debunk some common myths and hopefully save you from the internal dilemma. The following are the major False Assumption About Planning Your Studies Through a Travel Agent:

1. Their consultation is expensive:

Believe it or not, it’s free, affordable and pocket friendly. I remember how baffled a parent was when our consultant said that the service came without charges (except for visa-related expenses of course).

Some parents weren’t convinced that there were no hidden fees and continued to carry money with them to all our meetings until the end of their application process. But the service remained free until the very end.

2. They will choose your universities for you:

When you had chosen Canada or any other country as your study destination, consultants can only encouraged you to list all the universities you wished to apply to.

They have zero influence on your university choices, aside from assistance with researching the best universities in your field of study. In fact, our travel consultants  will do everything to help you – from mapping out your essay requirements to laying out student accommodation options.

3. They are inauthentic:

There are often questions regarding the credibility or the authenticity of agents and travel consultants due to fear of fraudulent practices. And in all honesty, that’s a fair concern.

Hence, it’s important to find registered agencies or the ones recommended by your trusted family or friends. Trust and reputation are vital when looking into your education agency options and it’s important to choose the best match for you thus choose Luxair Travels and Tours.

4. Quality of consultation varies according to the choice of country:

With us, it doesn’t. Luxair Travels and Tours has trained professionals with years of experience assigned to different countries.

In fact, our specialized knowledge and expertise across the various study destinations bolstered the quality of our consultations.

5. They make the process harder, not easier:

Many assumed that working with an agency complicated the process of applying to universities. But it’s not true. All you have to do is provide your documents relevant to the application.

Our consultants make the application process easier by listing out the documents in advance so you can be well-prepared throughout. They also offered expert advice on potential issues you might face during the course of application, which may otherwise hinder the process if you decide to do it by yourself.

6. They are only out to make commissions from high-paying universities:

If this were true, our travel consultants would’ve persuaded you to change your mind about your choice of universities. Not only will our consultants help you apply to my top universities by the deadline, but they also give you immense help when your applications returned with discouraging responses. Our consultants offered alternative ways to reapply or overcome this issue if there were a possible solution. And I honestly believe that they wouldn’t go to such great lengths had they been profit-driven from the start.

The process of applying to universities and visas is time-consuming and arduous. And one wrong move – such as uploading the wrong documents or providing erroneous information – can jeopardize your opportunity and put you at risk of refusal.

Going through an education agency as LUXAIR TRAVELS AND TOURS can help you avoid these mistakes and increase your chances of success at securing an admission.

Your experience with us at Luxair  Travels and ..Tours will speak for itself and I can guarantee that it’ll be worth it…
