A recent article in the Washington Post shows how one traveler thought he was getting a great deal on flights to Puerto Rico; that turned out not to be the case. His flights actually cost him more with the additional fees charged and he soon realized that travel deals that seem too good to be true, aren’t.
If you find a deal that interests you, do your homework before you book. Research to verify the company, location of the resort or hotel, and check online reviews. Read the fine print; here you will find hidden information such as daily resort fees, additional fees charged by rental car companies, cruise line gratuities and service charges for specialty services. All of the hidden fees can add up and make the travel deals you find too good to be true.
This is why a travel advisor is your best advocate. We have done the research for you. Know the destinations, the resorts, and the cruise lines. Tell you upfront of any additional fees that are not included in your travel package. We only work with reputable suppliers that we know will deliver on the vacation experience that our clients want.
If you find a deal online, and it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
