Travel Agent or On Our Own?

Jump to last reply

We've pretty much narrowed down our August trip to Germany, Austria, Switzerland - some sort of loop. We are now trying to figure out if we should do the planning on our own or enlist the help of a travel agent. We are a bit daunted by travel planning in Europe, but are VERY comfortable planning our own trips in the U.S. The first travel agent we talked to a while ago just gave us a lot of information on bus tours and we are pretty sure we don't want a bus tour. We are envisioning doing some public transportation in cities, but renting a car and driving for most of our trip, so that we can be in control of our destinations, time frames, etc.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated? Any good sources for good European travel planning agents or websites to help us do it on our own?

Thanks so much for your help!
Jessica
