If so, this article will point you in the right direction on who to go to in case you are seeking the best deal for you on your flight to Canada.
Specifically, this will discuss the importance of a Filipino travel agent who is in the best position to help you in your search.
After reading this, you will have the general idea on how people save money and obtain the necessary assistance when they decide to get their first time immigrant airline ticket from one of their kababayan.
If you are coming to Canada for the first time as an immigrant and you are from the Philippines, a Filipino travel agent who specializes in airfares for those who are coming to Canada is your best choice of saving money on your plane ticket and getting the needed assistance.
(An ethnic Filipino-owned travel agency can help you best as a first time immigrant to Canada.)
Not everyone knows this but, ethnic Filipino agents who are based in Canada and have travel agency connection in the Philippines not only provide you with the savings you are seeking but can help you best in gathering the requirements needed to satisfy Government requirements.
Many people think that Expedia and other online travel agencies give them the best priced airfare. Not so. Both Expedia and your travel agent (whoever she is) obtain their airline pricing from the same system called the airline distribution system. This is not known to a lot of people.
Not only that. In case you need information on what the requirements are needed to satisfy to government regulations pertaining to overseas contract workers, Expedia cannot help you with them. No one in their call center personnel are equipped with knowledge on government regulations regarding overseas workers.
(Expedia and other online travel agencies will not be able to meet the support needed by the newcomer compared with travel agencies specializing in first time immigrant airfares from the Philippines because of lack of knowledge on their real needs.)
Ok, that seems logical – but what do you look for in a reliable travel agent to help you in your first time immigrant airline ticket?
First of all, the travel agent should have representation both in Canada and in the Philippines.
Secondly, both the Philippine representative and the Canadian travel counselor should know the requisites of both the Canadian and Philippine governments regarding departing Filipino expatriates.
Third, both the Canadian travel counselor and the Philippine travel agent must have access to an airline distribution system so that they can pull in real time the available seats on any airline company.
Fourth, both issuing office in the Philippines and the travel counselor in Canada have been doing business for a long time and can vouch for each others integrity.
Fifth, both must have access to consolidator (wholesale) companies or have direct access to airline contracts so that the passengers can benefit from discounted ticket announcements not available to the general public.
Those are just some of the what you should be checking out if you are on the search for a the best airfare for a first time immigrant and a quality service from a Filipina travel counselor.
If your travel representative can satisfy most of what was discussed above, you can forget Expedia – who is not really the best go-to agency when it comes to first-timer airfare to Canada.
Instead, choose a reliable Filipino-owned travel agency in Canada, who have an agency office in the Philippines, for your immigrant airline ticket.
