What Can I do ?

I pay a travel agent ( cash and check) for two international air tickets . My trip is two week from now and travel agent has not given me my e ticket. I was told I only get my ticket number 24 hours before departure. I try to get a mediator to work on my case, but it seems there is no progress.

I have a very bad feeling and worry that I won't be able to go on this trip .My question is what option do I have . Is there anything I can do to make that travel agent to give me my ticket sooner than 24 hrs.

Cash? Check? *shakes head*

Why not use a credit or debit card for added protection? Once you hand over cash you're basically stuffed.

You must know the airline ?

Contact them directly and see if the agent purchased the tickets.

NEVER use cash you live and you learn.

In my part of the world a travel agent is bonded.

This is insurance against the company failing.

Is there the equivalent cover in the US?

In such a case paying cash wouldn't be a problem.
