He may be a comedian but Jimmy Fallon wasn’t joking when he said he’s an avid fan of Travel Agents and the reason why will make you laugh (in an ‘I told you so’ way).

Online bookers pay attention – it’s that they give him the good deals!


Speaking to media at Orlando, the late night host admitted that he couldn’t even book his own trip if he tried because he’s been using consultants his whole life, Travel Market Report reported.

“Of course I use a Travel Agent. Travel Agents get you the best rooms and the best rates.”

“I was friends with a travel agent growing up in Saugerties, NY; I’ve used a Travel Agent my whole life. I don’t even know how to book my own trip.”

The statement couldn’t come at a better time for consultants, who are in an ongoing battle with their online counterparts for a bigger share of the travel market.


Aside from using Travel Agents, Fallon works closely with Universal Studios to promote tourism and is even in the midst of launching a new ride at Universal Studios Orlando.

The comedian described the ‘Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon’ ride as “the best ever” because it’s immersive and it captures the New York buzz along with its sights and sounds.

This isn’t Fallon’s first tango with Universal, he’s currently a major part of the theme park’s ‘studio tour’.
