Vacation Packages

Some people’s idea of a great vacation is to throw the map out the window and just get in the car and go. For most, though, it requires research and planning to find affordable vacation deals that promise a fun and safe time away from home. Purchasing a vacation package helps you do the homework on your destination getaway and often means you're getting a better deal.

Ooh - BAD timing for travel to Hawaii - and if not booked by now you probably just about have to have a travel agent. Good thing this is just the honeymoon and not the wedding, if you are booking now - so an agent will be even more important to you in this case, though I guess you might get a decent deal with an airline-sponsored package deal for two as well, if any are still available.

 

My experience - a good travel agent is worth their weight in gold - we give ours a thank-you gift each year. We have one that charges $35 a person fee for all but extensive foreign travel packages (they make most of their money off booking commissions). We use her for all travel except simple mileage-plan-paid there-and-back trips when there is no rental car or motel involved, because when she does the booking she generally saves us about $25-50/day just on rental car and hotel/motel. For instance, on one Disney World trip we were able to take the 4 in the family PLUS our kid's two best friends for about 5 days there, staying on-property with preferred passes, for the same amount as just the normal two adult cost - a thousand plus in savings. We can go online and see zero mileage or discount seats available for an entire week - yet she is able to get us seats on the day we want in most cases, or at worst one day away, and almost always on mileage even though the airlines themselves say no mileage seats are available - including at high travel periods.

 

Of course, you need a conscientious one with lots of experience who knows the system ins and outs, and preferably running on the Sabre reservation system because it shows a lot more than competing systems and makes finding alternative booking easier, as I understand it.

 

Using a travel agency (preferably one with several people working there and 24-hour emergency service) also gives you a firm point of contact to solve any problems or rescheduling - we have had 10 minute rebooking several times when a flight was cancelled - generally before the airline even got around to starting to help passengers get on other flights, and an agent carries a LOT more weight with rental car agencies or hotels or airlines than you do if the reservation is screwed up by them. Oh, and our agent always gets us a free car upgrade too - typically jumped up 2 grades at no extra charge.

 

Don't leave it ALL to the agent - give a synopsis of what type of lodging and seating and such you want and things you want to visit, then let him/her come back with a concept plan for approval modification, then to a hold reservation for your approval - typically an agent can put a "hold" on reservations for 24-48 hours for your approval, though that does require you stay on top of your eMail to respond back with OK or not in time to allow cancelling or confirming the reservation within that timeframe.

I called
Austin Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
for the best routing and pricing of roundtrip airfare and car rentals needed to reach Orange Beach,
Austin Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
.
Austin Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
was extremely knowledgeable and discussed alternative routes (e.g., via Gulfport, MS and Pensacola, FL) with a realistic estimate for the time needed and costs to reach our destination. She also was kind enough to suggest certain online websites and explained how ticketing and commissions worked -- and more importantly, what to beware of with the various sites. Wow! I highly recommend

Austin Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
did an amazing job with helping me obtain a travel visa to India. They guided me on every step of the way from taking photos, applying for the visa, checking my application and documents, and transporting the documents to and from the consulate in Houston. I was extremely impressed with the professional help they provided, their knowledge of everything that was required, and the very quick turnaround to get the visa. (I had heard from a couple of people that it could take 3-4 weeks. Perhaps it was the time of year, but this company got it for me within one week.)

They have helped me before in obtaining a passport (photos, application, etc.). Again, their extensive knowledge of things to watch out for, their professionalism, their very quick turnaround, and their cheerful, helpful attitudes make them a pleasure to do business with.

I recently booked a cruise through
Austin Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
. I had never used a travel agent to book any travel before so after I received prices from her I checked them against what I could get on my own through Orbitz, Hotwire, etc. I assumed I could get a better deal through one of the clearing houses. I was shocked and grateful to find that

had saved me a minimum of $200 on the best price I could locate on my own. Plus, booking through one of the clearing houses I wouldn't have access to all the options I have found with

They were very efficient. I went in with the paperwork that their website told me to bring. No waiting -- they immediately reviewed my paperwork, had me sign in, took my passport photo, and prepared a packet for me to take to the courthouse. I was out of their office and off to the courthouse in about 10 minutes. I dropped the completed packet from the courthouse back by their office about a half hour later (they are very close to the courthouse) and was off to work. The entire process took less than an hour, although I was probably lucky that there was no line at the courthouse. My passport was ready to be picked up a couple of days before I was told it would be ready and it was perfect.

was wonderful! She answered her phone personally, and stayed with me until the reservations had been made. The only problem was that parking was not mentioned in the hotel's ad (not her fault). We wound up having to pay $28 a day for each of the three days we were there. We had a wonderful time. The hotel was beautiful, and across Canal Street from the French Quarter!

I needed to book a flight overseas for my son's summer trip to visit friends and while
Austin Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
was not able to do that for me since she does not book just a flight, she spent a full 30 minutes on the phone with me to answer questions and give me helpful information in acquiring the ticket myself. She was also able to give me information about traveler's insurance and gave me lots of peace of mind about sending my child abroad for the first time. Will I use her services when I DO need to book more than a flight - you bet! She was courteous, informative and really seemed interested in helping someone have a good travel experience - even though she was not going to make a cent off of this trip.
