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.
Travel Agent reviews in Palm Desert
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..."
Op3 - answers Talking so someone else (I won't repeat what was being said, but not professional), no greeting.
Me "Excuse me? Hello?"
Me "Yes is this TDS?"
Op 3 - say something to someone else again - yelling
Op 3 "What?"
Me "Yes, is this TDS? I'm trying to reach
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.
planned our flights (domestic and international), hotels, excursions, and land transportation. We visited 3 states within
As soon as we got home,
It was awesome and I highly recommend him.
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.
