The expertise of agents has received a rousing recommendation from a rather unlikely source – after TV presenter Eamonn Holmes advised ITV viewers to book with a travel consultant.
Holmes, co-hosting This Morning on Wednesday (29 July) with wife Ruth Langsford, gave his backing to agents during a segment discussing Covid-related travel woes with The Independent’s Simon Calder.
“You know what this does to me? This makes me think surely from here on in, it strengthens the hand of travel agents,” said Holmes, as the trio tackled viewers’ queries.
“The old fashioned thing where you could lift up the phone and call your local travel agent and say ‘look, what’s happening?’ and you’ve got a point of reference."
