I live in Georgia, USA and am planning a trip with some friends for May 2014. We have never planned an "out of the country" self-driving trip and are a bit confused regarding all the information that we have been reading. If possible, maybe someone can give us their thoughts to help clarify some questions:
1. What are the advantages of using a travel agency to book this tour? For example..
- Cost comparisons?
-Quality of tour package? (For example, we have read to be cautious of "vouchers" as some accommodations will have "no room" when a voucher is mentioned?)
---Assistance with problems? (We have read that many agencies are basically "finished" as soon as the tour is booked; therefore, if one has problems renting a car, finding rooms, etc., they are "on their own".)
2. Do you have suggestions as to which Travel Agency in Ireland would be the best or should we use one in the USA?
I do appreciate any assistance or suggestions anyone might have. Thank you very much.
