I’m not using a travel agent, but yes it’s just her job. She makes her money off of your trip so it is in her best interest to get your rooms booked.

If you are very pleased with her, you should give her referrals so that she can get more business. Maybe bring her a souvenier from your trip? Or just send a thank you card in the mail. Those are all nice things, but none of it is required bc it’s her job.

@LauraRose:  I would send her a thank you card after the wedding with a nice personal message letting her know you appreciated her help with everything. Thats what i’m planning to give to mine.

In the history of the world, I doubt anyone has ever been offended by receiving a “well done!” appreciation gift, however small. It may not be necessary, but it’s thoughtful. But also spread the word-of-mouth!! We’re planning to give restaurant gift certificates in similar situations.

A formal thank you sent to her company and referals will be way more valuable than any other gift. That bein said a gift certificate is always nice.

I would send a thank you card and let her supervisor know you are pleased.

The hotels I use to work for, paid a 10% commission to travel agents off the entire room portion of the bill. 

I have noticed in my 14 years for working in management with Hotels – Reservations and Front Desk – that travel agents do not always find the best discount…. Sometimes the best rates are not commissionable.

If you found a great travel agent, good for you! I would send a thank you card and maybe a small gift for going above and beyond! It is rare these days to truely find individuals that give amazing service! That should be rewarded.
