Online travel reservations have become the latest trend in Lebanon as more passengers prefer to book flights from the comfort of their homes and without the need to pay a commission for travel agencies.Diab said that travel websites give clients hints about when is the best time to reserve for a trip to get the best price.Diab cited one example, saying that she traveled to Prague, Vienna and Budapest less than a year ago by reserving through a well-known website for only $900, including the price of the airfare, four-star hotels and train transport between the three destinations.Ayan explained that travel agencies provide their clients with services that cannot be accessed online.With the increased popularity of travel websites, some travel agents in Lebanon have started to follow the online trend by providing their clients with the option to reserve their trips online for them to save time and money.Malaeb said that travel agents cannot ignore the online trend because around 33 percent of Lebanese travelers nowadays make trips reservations online.But Malaeb believes that travel agents can still give their clients services that cannot be provided by online websites.
