QUESTION: How do travel agencies get paid?
ANSWER: Travel agencies are paid a commission by cruise lines and tour operators for selling their products. Cruise lines and tour operators rely on the 25,000 plus travel agencies around the country to promote and sell their products.
QUESTION: Will I pay less if I call the cruise line or tour operator personally instead of going through a travel agency?
ANSWER: No, you pay the same price as the travel agency. The only difference is the travel agency receives a commission. You don't.
QUESTION: Is the price on the Internet the lowest?
ANSWER: Not always, the prices you find on the internet don't often include all taxes and hidden fees and can have many restrictions. Also, you will be lucky if you can find a phone number on most sites that you can call. If you have to make a change to a reservation made online good luck. Remember, this is your
honeymoon and not a spring break tour.
