"On Angies List web page for this business it is stated that the hours for Sunday are from 10 - 6. Well we are located quite a way from this business and going by the reviews wanted" to use them. So. we drove all the way there (about 50 minutes) just to see that the hours for Sunday are "closed" Either the Angies website is wrong or the they are wrong. Either way it was a big waste of time (and gas).

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 Roanoke

The job was done in two stages with removal completed first. I asked the owner to have his work crew present early, as I commute to work. They were present with sleeves rolled up and ready to start at 6:30 a.m. It was necessary to move some furnishings and boxes which was done by the crew. They completed the first phase and secured the place in my absence. I was delighted with the quality of work on the first phase and very excited to see the end results. I must add that a stair ornament was bumped in the process. The owner was quick to notify me and took immediate responsibility for it. We basically repeated the same process on paint day, with an early arrival by the crew. The paint crew started at 7 a.m. and completed the job around 2:00 p.m. The quality of the completed work is excellent. I can readily distinguish between the work previously completed and

set up the cruise exactly as requested, got a lower rate & better cabin that I had looked at. Also included some extra amenities. Searched and set-up additional hotels and air travel. Provided insurance for the entire trip. Cost was within my budget.
Seems like the most important thing on

's mind was to get me the trip I wanted. I feel she went over and above to make it all happen.
I had used a different agent for an upcoming trip and was not impressed.
For that reason I decide to try

I took a
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
and found this company online on Angie's List.
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
is in high demand, and quite busy but I waited 2 weeks for them to come and give an estimate and had a good feeling about them after speaking with
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
on the phone.
The day he was to come, he called about 20 minutes before hand to let me know he was caught in traffic and apologized he would be late. This level of courtesy and consideration immediately caught my attention since most workers are so
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
, never bother to call or let you know they are delayed.
The worker,
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
came promptly at 7a.m.ready to work and waited patiently outside in his car gulping down breakfast until he saw that Iopened up the front door.
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
, was polite, focused, conscientious and very hard working .
He worked continuously barely taking a break in the summer heat.
Demolition is quite messy and physically demanding, but he seemed to take it in stride.
I put the radio on a Spanish speaking channel while he and his friend worked to make it easier for them.
The beams under the ceiling needed reinforcement, so they called their boss to update him, got his approval drove to the nearest Home Depot and bought the proper sized lumber to buttress it properly, all the while, explaining to me what needed to be done and making sure I was ok with it.
They swept and cleaned up nicely before they left.
Their boss,
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
, kept in touch with me by phone to make sure I was pleased with their job.
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
is a well a run company, fair, prompt and from this one experience, ethical.
I'm glad I found them because prior to using them, I had 3 other estimates from men who seemed unprofessional and talked and talked to me about their other clients, jobs and how much work they had to do etc. etc.
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
on the other hand, wasted no time on trivia , got to the point and more importantly got the job done right.
I would recommend them to anyone wanting dry wall done properly.

Outstanding! I had looked at Disney's website and tried to figure out the best options at the most reasonable cost. I then called
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
, as I always do with major trips. I explained what I needed but wasn't sure of the best value for the money.
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
took the info and worked her magic. See called back a short time later with 4 or 5 options and their cost. We discuss the pros & cons of each. One of the options was just what I wanted and at a price that was reasonable for all it provided. I was delighted.

I booked a hotel (

on 5/28/2014.
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
immediately charges the credit card for the full balance. I stayed at
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
Inn and everything was fine. On checkout day, I discovered the bill from
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
for the room was only $504.72 (including the nightly charge and all taxes). When I inquired why the difference from
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
's customer service, they basically said I had agreed to the $619.99 and that it was going to stay at that amount. I reminded them that they have a 'Best Price' guarantee. That is basically meaningless ... It is only good if you find a better price in 24 hours. I went so far as to open an inquiry with America Express which is the Credit Card that I booked with

... The response to that was the same ... too bad ... I agreed to the $619.99 when I booked it. Legally,
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
is probably correct ... As a good business practice, they are completely wrong. They were only charged $504.72 for the room and they charged me significantly more. The written explanation given by

INN DETROIT UTICA -
Roanoke Travel Agents Provider Name Locked
TOWNSHIP with check in date of06/24/2014. Attached is itinerary which is supporting itemization of charges as well as cancellation policy not signed due to online booking. This is not an overcharge. Cardholder was revealed net rate in error. We understand the cardholder would much rather pay this rate, however this does not include business taxes associated with bulk purchases. We will be holding cardholder responsible for agreed upon amount/terms and conditions at time of booking.
I will not be using

again. I will also be telling everyone who I can think of not to use them because you have no recourse if they overcharge you.
