K & N Travel Opens in Chatsworth, California

Chatsworth, CA, July 27, 2007 --(PR.com)-- K & N Travel, an independent contract for Joystar, Inc. has opened its home-based office in Chatsworth, California in response to the ever-growing travel industry.

Founder, Kathryn Magallanes, sees a huge potential to bring clients that may use various online booking engines back over to a full service travel agent. “I see so many clients that are disillusioned with some of the online booking engines. Teaser advertising is a big problem. Granted it does bring in potential clients to your website. I see people who believe they are going to get that “great deal” and end up very discouraged when, after completing that booking, that the total dollars spent are nowhere near what was advertised. I want every client that I deal with to feel that they have been treated honestly and with respect.”

According to a May 17, 2007 article in SmartMoney.com, “After more than a decade of decline, the humble travel agent is staging a comeback. Frustrated with the recent rash of sold-out hotels and airline seats, travelers are discovering that for all the hype, web sites ... are losing some of their edge, especially when it comes to high-end locations. And customer displeasure is starting to show; growth in the once red-hot online travel business is cooling, up 20% last year after a 28% increase in 2004. Setting the stage for the agency renaissance is a booming travel market that has vacationers scrambling to find room at the inn. Airports are mobbed, with the major U.S. carriers filling 79% of seats last year, the highest rate since World War II. At the same time, hotel occupancy rates hit their loftiest mark in nearly a decade last year, according to Smith Travel Research. It doesn't hurt that agent-friendly businesses such as cruise lines are also growing, with a record 12.6 million people expected to take a cruise this year.”

Another advantage of K & N Travel is the accessibility to groups of travel suppliers and consolidators that assist to give a client the best vacation for their money. According to Kathryn, “Many times a few phone calls to a supplier can bring added value to a vacation, for example, room upgrades on a cruise.”

Whether your vacation needs happen to be a cruise, an all-inclusive vacation, international travel, a hotel room or a rental car, please visit the website www.kandntravel.com or call Kathryn directly at 818-717-9006.
