"I contacted
by email to see about taking an Alaskan cruise this summer. I asked for information and if we should make an appointment in" their office. The person who returned my email asked me for detailed information (number of cruising days, number of people/ages, etc). I returned the email with many details (embarkment location we would prefer, length of time, months we would consider sailing, and everything else she asked for). She returned this email with one choice of cruise lines and one price and from an embarkment location we would not consider. I emailed her back asking if this was the only cruise line that went to Alaska and she told me in the next email to go on line and check out the different cruises. Well of course I could do that, however I was looking for some extra help. We did use this company in the past for a cruise, but I won't be using them again.

"I booked my family vacation (for 4) with
of
back in December. We are staying 7 nights in a pool-side, one bedroom" villa. The entire room selection and booking process was easy. She was very responsive and was able to get us a great deal. The room rate even decreased after we booked,
quickly notified me and we were able to get the lower rate. It was great! Now that we are getting close to leaving for our vacation
has been in contact to ensure that our check-in process goes smoothly. This is the second time
has assisted my family with travel planning...she has been wonderful and we will definitely use her again.

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.

Called the listed number on Angie's list
When I called the service was so poor just trying to find the right person to talk to I hung up!
1st Operator - "Good morning. What do you want?" Me: Good morning I need to speak to someone about support for getting a business visa to India. Operator "Hold please"
2nd Operator: very very apathetic "What do you want?"
I repeat myself from above.
Op2 Oh...you need to call

.
Me: Okay, can you transfer me?"
Op2 "No, he's not in this office."
Me " Can you give me his number?"
Op2 "oh yeah...here it is..."
Call "

"
Op3 - answers Talking so someone else (I won't repeat what was being said, but not professional), no greeting.
Me "Excuse me? Hello?"
Op3 "Hello?"
Me "Yes is this TDS?"
Op 3 - say something to someone else again - yelling
Me "Hello?
Op 3 "What?"
Me "Yes, is this TDS? I'm trying to reach
Palm Desert Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
about a business Visa from India. Your other office gave me this number."
Op 3 "yeah, ummm" Hold music - no answer after a minute.
I hung up at that point. No way these people would get my business for 2 dollars, much less important travel documentation.

is absolutely what I expect and want a travel agent to be. She listens to what we want, proposes multiple options, and then helps to book our itinerary. She is very responsive, and detailed.

Grace was great from start to finish. She listened to our needs (and we have many!) and delivered above our expectations. We waited until the last minute to plan our honeymoon, which left us with little to no options. We called her and explained our situation, and within a day she had made doors open that didn't exist prior (trust me, I tried). I understand that she has connections in the industry, but didn't realize how beneficial it was until she was able to get us a room at the Grand

Kauai that was previously sold out. Not only that but she got our breakfast compd during our stay! If you haven't had food in Hawaii, its expensive! Breakfast alone saved us near 80 dollars a day.

The booking and recommended cruise went very well. She made the air travel arrangements for us with my other coming from one place and me from another and meeting in the Atlanta airport. The return flights did not allow enough time after disembarking, so she rebooked for us and sent a gift card to cover the additional charge for it.

She also recommended travel insure which we purchased. This was a godsend as my mother became ill the first night of the cruise and had to be taken to a hospital in the Cayman Island and then flown back to Ft.

via air ambulance. The travel insurance company did an excellent job of making the arrangements for us. Thankfully, my mother has since recovered.
