Is There A Travel Agency Around Here?

Introduction



This post is about giving information about facilities in the vicinity, and more specifically about the availability of a travel agency nearby.





SCENARIO


Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or a work colleague. The other person is looking for a travel agency. He/ she doesn't know the locality, but believes that you do and says to you something like: "is there a travel agency around here?"

In Spanish, the other person could choose to say:
¿Hay una agencia de viajes por aquí?


OUR TIP
The question is an invitation for you to say whether or not there are any travel agencies in the vicinity. A yes/no answer may be strictly sufficient. However, with little effort, your answer could be a lot more informative


Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Sí, hay una agencia de viajes cerca de aquí (yes, there is a travel agency near here)
  • Sí, hay una agencia de viajes bastante cerca (yes, there is a travel agency quite near)
  • Sí, hay una agencia de viajes muy cerca (yes, there is a travel agency very near)
  • Sí, hay una agencia de viajes a la vuelta de la esquina (yes, there is a travel agency around the corner)
  • Sí, hay una agencia de viajes al otro lado de la calle (yes, there is a travel agency on the other side of the street/ road)
  • No, por aquí no hay ninguna agencia de viajes (no, there aren't any travel agencies around here)
  • No, por aquí no hay agencias de viajes (no, there are no travel agencies around here)

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Hay una agencia de viajes por aquí?
