But before we jump into it, here are some tips on how to plan your vacation properly so as to not wind up disappointed.
If the offer sounds too good to be true, it is.
Trust your instincts when offered too-good-to-true vacation deals and holiday packages. If the offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Always go into the fine print and request for complete information like where the hotel is, what kind of bus, where the restaurants are. It's easy finding information about these places - all you have to do is log onto the Internet and look for reviews.
Who knew that dealing with a travel agent could be so tricky
Well, it is. The rule of thumb is to believe only half of what you see on the travel agent's website, believe it when you see the offer right under your nose. The details in the website can be changed at any point in time and some unscrupulous travel agents actually go out of their way to manipulate the information provided on their websites. So, remember, whatever you see on the travel agent's website is not concrete proof and if you can't hold it against them when they don't keep their word.
The most important information of all is not the price of the vacation
But what is? The cancellation clause, that's what! In the event you need to cancel something because you're not satisfied with their package, there are dramatic changes to the plans or if the travel agent doesn't keep their words, you would want to know how and when you can simply cancel your purchase of the package and get a refund.
It's always cheaper to book early..
..there's still time to plan ahead! For those who are keener on having their vacation plans in January or December of 2007, you've still time to scout around for the best price. If you book months ahead, you'll get a cheaper pricing because as time goes on and there are fewer places available, the prices gets jacked up.
To protect yourself from fraudulent travel agents, make sure they are registered with an organization
Organizations such as USTOA back their packages with Consumer Protection Plans which reimburses vacationers their deposits or any money paid out to travel agents who defaults in payment or falls into bankruptcy. And before you part with a single cent of your hard-earned money, go out of your way to check the legitimacy of the travel agent.
Book the bus or airplane early
if you're planning a vacation to a highly popular area, make your transportation bookings a little earlier..at least when your plans are confirmed. Hiring a charter bus requires only a phone call and don't play Russian Roulette with availability of the bus or airplane. True, if you wait a little longer, there might be some last minute sales but what if there isn't?
We hope the information above will help you enjoy your vacation better and here's hoping that you'll have a memorable vacation this winter time that is completely disaster-free. To book a charter bus early, contact USCoachways or USCoachways Limousine now.
