Why should I use a travel agent?
There are only benefits to using the services of our travel agents.  Each of our agents is trained and knowledgeable about different destinations.  Depending on where you are interested in going, we have just the agent for you!

We all work as a team and will direct you to the right agent, based on your vacation needs and wants.  There are no extra fees associated with using one of our agents and we search multiple tour operators to find the best price available.

From the day you book your trip with us, until you are back home, we are here for you to help in any way!

Why is a travel agent better than using the internet?
We take the stress away!  Using a travel agent is a very personalized service that you cannot get from an online booking engine.  Our agents are here to listen to you and find out exactly how we can make your trip special.  We will design each trip to fit your specific needs and wants.  Our combined years of expertise will get you the most out of your vacation!

When using the internet to book your trips, you don't always know exactly what you are getting into. Online sites often advertise "hot deals" with hidden fees.  Avoid deceptive pricing by dealing with an actual expert who can answer questions.

At International Tours & Cruises, we provide our clients with honest and upfront information, being sure not to leave out any details. When you book a trip with us, you can be sure that you know exactly what you are paying for.

Our agents will work step by step with you to create the perfect vacation!
