@red_rose:  I guess it’s both – it is kind of rude, but they do expect it. My friend is a travel agent, and from what you’ve described, I don’t think YOU are being rude, because you only talked for 15 minutes and she didn’t do much work.

Rude is when they spend days finding you deals and making up a dream itinerary and THEN you go and book it alone. But you’re not being rude at all IMO.

I don’t think it’s rude. You have no attachments to her, she didn’t a ton of work for you yet. I personally have used travel agents every time I have traveled out of the country, and have found them extremely helpful! Twice we had to cancel & rebook last minute, I would of been lost if I were doing it on my own. I just always feel better having a professional take care of something so important and expensive! Maybe she wasn’t the “right” agent for you, try calling around.. maybe you’ll click with someone else. And honestly, she’ll never know you booked it on your own.. she’ll have no idea what you decide to do, even if you go without someone else.
