have called the Cruise & Travel Connection and
one of our Travel Professionals has found you a good
deal. Now how do you take advantage of it? We've seen
it far too many times and in many different ways:
we come across an amazing deal one afternoon but our
client would prefer to go home and talk with her/his
friends or family. They call back when we open at
9:00 the next morning and the great rates are no longer
available or the room has been taken by someone else
in another time zone.
In our globally-networked world, once word gets out
about a particular deal, it will not last long. The
key to getting last-minute deals is to book them (i.e.
pay for them) as soon as possible. Until you make
a deposit, no hotel or airline or tour operator has
any obligation to honor the quoted price. This applies
to most kinds of travel, and especially something
that is last-minute or which you see advertised in
the paper or elsewhere. The phrase "Here today,
gone tomorrow" doesn't even apply to travel deals.
"Here now, maybe here in an hour" would
be more appropriate in many cases.
Our advice: Book it Now!
