Who doesn't love a good travel deal? This week, All Magical Travel's: Travel Tip Monday is .....Read The Fine Print! I know both Jenn and I love travel deals! We love to search for the best travel package at the best possible price for your travel dollars. Many times, our clients will come across a deal on discount site, from internet searching, in newspapers and so on. Many times, those promotions will include a discount travel packaged, perks like extra resort/cruise credits, free hotel stays, etc.
We have broken down the rates and perks.
"Their" promotions are directly driven from the supplier. They are the exact promotion that we can get as well. Those deals throw in bonuses like resort credits, on-board perks, free hotel stays, free dining packages, upgrades, etc. We have access to those same perks as well, with the exception of free hotel stays. Those "free" nights are often tied to multiple night stays (in which you, the customer, will have to pay for those additional nights), timeshare presentations, and more....making them not-so-free after all.
We urge you to read the fine print. Know exactly what you are purchasing, what is included, what is not, and the strings tied to freebies. Also keep in mind, should you have to cancel, many of these suppliers will charge you a processing fee, on top of whatever the travel supplier's cancellation policy is. All Magical Travel works hard on your behalf to obtain the best pricing but we also only use vendors that are Ensemble Preferred (the travel industry's largest and oldest consortium of suppliers and agents).
What does that mean? It means we only use trusted vendors that don't overbook packages or have strings tied to your vacation. We welcome you to call and tell us about the promotion you are considering, and give us the opportunity to either meet or surpass the promotion.....but with not strings attached!
Our goal: Creating the best vacation, at the best price, only using the best and trusted vendors.
Happy Traveling!Nancy & Jenn
