Did you know that most travel agents work on All Inclusive vacation packages and when they do, often do not get paid? Crazy Right! Travel professionals do not get paid to select the perfect destination for your vacation and to put together multiple quotes, only to hear “Thanks for your help, but I booked it online myself”. Who wants to, or even can work for free? We know you can’t, nor can we.
Most All-inclusive vacation packages from our preferred tour companies and cruise lines INCLUDE travel agent commissions in their published rates. With these travel arrangements, the travel agent only get paid when you book your trip with their agency and then in most cases it is after you travel. In order to provide the best service to our loyal and dedicated clients, a planning/research fee applies for all services.
The planning & research consultation fee for Air/hotel – All Inclusive vacation packages ( 3 destinations | 5 resorts complimentary), Ocean & River Cruises, International Air or hotel only bookings is $95 plus GST per room/ cabin booking (Not per person), Air/hotel All Inclusive Groups ( 7, 10, & 14 day duration) and customized tour bookings $250 plus GST & Destination Weddings $700 plus GST. This payment is required prior to any time spent researching travel options. The fee covers all quotations, and recommendations until we find you the vacation package you want to confirm, and booking of all aspects of your holiday. If any amendments are required or any travel advice or regulations change, we are here to assist you at any time!
However, please know that airlines and many other travel suppliers do not offer any travel agent commissions. Planning fees apply to individual or group travel requests, as well as travel arrangements that include extensive and/or complicated itineraries which require a great deal of time and research. Fees ensure that properties and destinations are recommended because they meet your needs and not based on bonuses or commissions they may offer.
