In the age of internet reservations, I saved significant money using a travel agent for my honeymoon. Because of problems in the economy, our trip to Hawaii is a definite luxury. Today, she called to let me know she cancelled my original trip and rebooked it at a significantly lower cost. While I might have been able to pull it off myself, I really doubt it. Including booking the airline reservations at the right time (and avoiding the idiotic checked luggage fee), I figure she saved us $1,000-1,200 on the trip.
