we are a full service travel agency. We book airline tickets, car rentals, hotels, Amtrak, vacations, cruises, or anything to do with travel. 

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving Holiday. Took me a couple days to get back to the blog writing. All that turkey slowed me down. This week I booked  a last minute one way ticket from Phoenix to Portland, Maine for client that had to come back home immeadiately, meaning same day travel.

His father checked the internet and called a few places,then came to me to purchase his ticket. I found a rate for about $220.00 for him, and he told me that I saved him a "couple hundred dollars" and a 6 hour roundtrip drive by finding this low fare. Why I got it for so much lower then other agencies is really unknown to me, but just give us a call about any type of travel needs, and SEE WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY'S MAKES!

Don't forget about our GUARANTEED LOWEST PACKAGE RATES TO THE CARIBBEAN and MEXICO, lower than Travelocity, Expedia, or Ortiz, or we will pay you $50.00.

Come book at Day's Travel and see our guaranteed lowest Caribbean package rates, lower than online!

Today I checked rates for the adult only Hedonsim III, in Runaway Bay, for a 7 night package from February 6-13. This time I added 2 new internet vacation companies to my list, Club ABC and Chea Caribbean. Our rates are still lower then both of these!  The below rates include the same flight times, room type and transfers. But remember, FULL PAYMENT is due at time of booking with the internet , but here, just a deposit is due and final payment usually 75 days prior to travel.

Expedia, Doesn't carry the Hedonism resort. So, if you wanted to stay there, Expedia can't book it , call a travel agent.

Travelocity, $1586.00 per person

Orbitiz, $1523.00 per person

Club ABC, $1552.00 per person

Cheapcaribbean, $1612.00

DAY'S TRAVEL, $1509.00 per person

So, as you can see above,book at Day's Travel, and SEE WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAYS MAKES!

USAirways new money making method to increase profits
11/8/2007 10:34:10 AM Link 0 comments | Add comment

is just a great idea and I wish I had thought of it. USAirways now changes its ticketing rules without taking the time to inform the travel agent community. This way, they can issue what they call "debit memoes", and collect unfair penalties against travel agents who have not been informed of rule changes. It is one thing to charge the travel agent the fare audit liability, but to charge us a penalty on top of this, is just a rip off, and a way for the airlines to pad their pockets.

Travel agents still book the largest percentage of airlines tickets, and airlines pay us nothing to sell their product, but are at the front, leading the charge to take money from us, for selling their product for no commission or any other type of pay. 

Our clients exchanged tickets and an agent of ours accidently applied the difference of the fare to the penalty that USAir charges to change tickets. This used to be allowed, but they changed rules and didn't inform us. We are now paying USAirways $247.46 in penalty and fare difference. This airline wouldn't even waive the $32.26 in penalties, even though we generate over $300,000.00 in sales for them every year, with a dime from them.  Airlines, what an ungrateful, money grubbing, uncaring, unsympathetic, bunch. No wonder European carriers are always talked about as being superior to the USAIR, DELTA and UNITED the we have here.

Remember  here at Day's Travel, we guarantee the lowest package rates to the Caribbean and Mexico. SEE WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY'S MAKES!

A good golf friend of mine called today and was looking for some river cruse information, and he usually books with Club ABC, an online "Travel Club", that offers vacations at "outstanding prices". After reading this, I decided to check out the great bargains. I just quickly chose January 9-16, 2008 from Portland, Maine to Punta Cana, using an inexpensive, but nice property, the Riu Naiboa. Using the same flight times, transfers and hotel accommodations, the rates are as follows: Club ABC total price per couple, $2370. 60.  Days Travel price, $2222.00 total per couple. This amounts to a savings of  $148.60 if you book here with Days Travel, Guaranteed Lowest rates to the Caribbean and Mexico.
