    I'm not sure which words for either 'travel' or 'agent' to use from the WR dictionary. My try Seyahat ajan.

    Travel agent (or agency) = Seyahat acentesi

    "Ajan" is almost always used in the context of secret agent/spy.

    When you come across the word "ajan" in a Turkish text, chances are it's either used as "spy" (as mentioned above) or "agent" in the sense used in science, especially chemistry and medicine. A travel agency as a company is "seyahat acentesi", again as mentioned above, and a travel agent as an individual is "seyahat danışmanı". While technically a "danışman" is a consultant, the term still covers the entire profession of a travel agent, including the presentation of available options to the potential traveler and the arrangement of transportation, accommodations and any leisure activities where applicable.

    Teşekkür ederim Nihilus, and Reverence, for the additional information. It was the danışmanı option I was looking for.
