"This is a beautiful hotel. It only has 68 rooms, so it is like a boutique hotel. All rooms have
views with decks. What I thought was really" neat, is they have an indoor heated salt water pool.

"we've used them several times. They are wonderful. They took care of everything. We didn't have to worry about our luggage it was in our room waiting for" us when we got to the hotel. It covered air fare,meals, and we had a tour guide that stayed with us through out the trip.

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.

We left on time. We went through a storm for 4-5 days of the trip. The seas were so bad. It was a real mess. They cancelled all the shows, nobody could eat anything because they had to get to New

on time. They didn't care about the people on the ship, they only cared about the passengers they were picking up. The work on the ship was not completed. They had over 100 workers on the ship the whole time. The workers were putting up signs the entire trip. Nobody knew where to go, while we were on the ship.

My husband received a phone call from
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
asking if we were interested in getting out of our time share permanently (the
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
would be transferred to a new owner(s) and we would have no more monthly maintenance fees). We were interested after our estate planning attorney suggested we get rid of the time shares (as the maintenance fees will only keep going up and our beneficiaries would not want to take on the
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
of them).
We owned two separate
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
Vacation Resorts time shares (one 120,000 points and the second 556,000 points). We had explored selling them back to
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
and were told they did offer a buy back program called Pathways but it required us to make an additional purchase of approximately $15,000 and then hold it as well as the two we already owned for five (5) more years. At that time they would purchase back any and all of of our points for an approximate 20% of our purchase price(s). Of course the salesperson could not or would not commit to the specifics without proceeding forward to the additional purchase. It would have cost us the $15,000 plus approximately $20,000 in monthly maintenance fees for a total of at least $35,000 for the five year period. At the end we could expect to sell back for approximately $25,000. Of course, we were concerned when the five years passed they would tell us something different.
Over the phone
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
asked us about our ownership status (i.e., we owned and had no loans, mortgages, liens or outstanding assessments and were up to date with maintenance fees). They reassured us that they were confident they could successfully transfer our
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
and thus get us out of our time shares permanently. They scheduled us to attend an upcoming seminar in our area within the next few weeks. In the interim they emailed us some preliminary information, forms to complete and a list of items to compile and bring to the seminar.
We attended the seminar where they reviewed the pitfalls of owning timeshares. It was eye opening. They explained how they go about transferring the
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
(s).
After this group presentation my husband and I met with a counselor. She reviewed our documents, and explained the timeline and steps that would occur. It was anticipated to take approximately 90 days before the transfer would occur and we needed to stay current with the maintenance fees. As it was the end of June we were hoping for an October transfer date. We paid the fee ($3,500 for each of the two time share
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
) and received a 100% guarantee in writing. The counselor explained that
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
e shares were somewhat desirable by their potential clients and they most likely had a purchaser already lined up.
There was some additional paper work that was mailed to us. Some required notarized signatures.
As it turned out we were told that since we had used all our points for calendar year 2014 the transfers most likely would not occur until after the first of the year. We either misunderstood or were told incorrect information at the seminar as we were under the impression that we should use all our points for 2014 and we did.
In December we received two separate letters (one for each of the two
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
) from
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
that the transfer of ownership for our time shares was complete.
Although it cost us $7,000 to successfully transfer our time share
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
we are saving $4,142.22 in maintenance fees for 2015 alone and much, much more in the years to come. And we are relieved that our beneficiaries will not inherit life ever lasting fees for something they did not want. On the flip side we would have paid
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
at least $10,000 and had use of the timeshare points for an additional five years but we were concerned that
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
would find a way(s) to reduce what they would buy back the

for.

My wife and I haven't used a travel agency for many years. We received an invitation to join some friends in Mazatlan for some mid-winter R&R and we had only a couple weeks to make the travel arrangements. We couldn't find the right combination of flights that would get us down and back when we needed to.

to the rescue. She found return flights using two different airlines on the day we needed to return. And we flew to our home airport without having to take a ground shuttle from the big city airport 3 hours away, and without having to stay overnight to wait for our connecting. Because we booked late for this type of travel, we didn't have the best seats, but

checked every day to see if something better opened up. She struck us as a go-

I have never written a bad review for anyone before, so this is a first. I was disappointed in the professionalism the travel agent
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
Gross of
Wheeling Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
in Flower Mound, Texas, provided. I contacted her through her facebook page indicating my husband and I needed help booking train, air, and hotel for two trips in Europe this summer. She indicated she could assist me, and we met at a local Starbucks to discuss what was needed. During our meeting, I asked her if this was something she could do for us relatively quickly, and she said it would be no problem, though her family was going on vacation at the end of the week.
During our meeting, she spent some time explaining how she had helped another client book a tour of Europe with her granddaughter, and it was going to be a great trip. I left the meeting with high expectations. The next evening at 10 pm she sent an email and said she did not have authorization to book train tickets in Europe, and it would take 48 hours to get approval for that, so she would not be able to help me. I wrote back asking what this meant, was she saying she did not want to help me, as in I was being let go as a client? I asked if she could respond so I would know whether to get another travel agent. I received no response until the next day. When she responded, her reply was a very terse, We're slammed this week - no apology, no referral to another agent. So I wasted four days and was abruptly dismissed.

is a GREAT travel agent to work with. I wouldn't trust anyone else to schedule my vacations. She always goes above and beyond and makes her clients her number one priority. She does an outstanding job. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to schedule a vacation.
