A travel agent can, should, and, depending on the preferences of their client, usually does evaluate all of these things in determining your travel needs. It only takes them a few short minutes. If you want to be your own travel agent, then here are some of the things you need to consider in order to feel confident that the airline tickets/fares you are buying are likely to be good (if not best) value and most suitable for you.
