Default Recommendation wanted for a US Travel Agent

I hope that I am not too far offbeam for this Board, but I am based in the UK (not an ExPat I admit !) and am looking for an efficient and reliable travel agent somewhere in the US who could issue airline tickets and post / courier them to me in the UK.

Any personal recommendations gratefully received !

Question

Why?

Everyone knows that the cheapest international flights available are from the bucket shops (consolidators) in London.

They're more expensive here in the States in comparison.

With the greatest respect this is not always right. Especially for US originating flights, which Farebuster does not offer.

Try looking up on expedia US/UK a fare for SJU - LHR one way in business class. US$ 1,500 if bought in the US but a lot more if bought in the UK

Frequentflyer99, you could try Liberty Travel. Trouble is technically it's a NO NO. You can't buy a ticket IN USA for origination from UK, unless you are a US citizen/ Legit Alien.
When I lived in UK we did get tickets purchased in NYC & sent to UK, because my wife is an American.
