Vacation FAQ

Questions Asked by Vacationers

Q: Why should I consider using a travel agent instead of booking online myself?

A: Using a travel agent to book your vacation offers several benefits:

  1. Personal Touch: Travel agents provide a personalized service tailored to your preferences and needs, ensuring your trip is as unique as you are.
  2. Resourceful Expertise: Agents possess a wealth of knowledge about various destinations, hotels, and travel trends. Their insights can enhance your travel experience and help you discover hidden gems.
  3. Stress Reduction: Navigating the myriad of online deals, reviews, and options can be overwhelming. Travel agents simplify this process, handling all the intricate details, from bookings to itinerary changes.
  4. Value for Money: While many assume online deals are the cheapest, travel agents often have access to exclusive offers and packages. They can negotiate better deals and provide value-added services, ensuring you get more bang for your buck.
  5. Troubleshooting: Should any hiccups occur during your trip, having a travel agent means you have someone to assist and advocate on your behalf, ensuring swift resolutions.

  7. Full Package Services: From insurance to transportation, excursions to accommodations, travel agents can coordinate all aspects of your trip, ensuring a seamless experience.

While online platforms are convenient for quick bookings, partnering with a dedicated agent from Touring With Us offers depth, value, and peace of mind that’s hard to achieve on your own.

A: At Touring With Us, we pride ourselves on transparency and the value we offer our clients. When you approach us for a basic vacation quote, it’s completely free of charge. We’re here to help you discover the possibilities for your next adventure. For those seeking detailed and customized travel plans, we may ask for an “intent-to-travel” deposit. This deposit is our way of ensuring that we’re dedicating our resources and expertise to travelers who are serious about their journey. But here’s the great part: this deposit isn’t just an added fee – it’s either applied directly to your reservations or you are sent a gift card once you decide to book your trip through us. So, in essence, you’re getting a jump start on your travel expenses while ensuring a tailored experience from our team!

Q: After booking my trip with Touring With Us, how do I access my travel itinerary?

Q: When booking a trip with Touring With Us, is travel insurance necessary?

A: Travel insurance is strongly recommended for all travelers, regardless of the nature or duration of your trip. While not mandatory when booking with Touring With Us, here are some reasons to consider getting covered:

  1. Unforeseen Circumstances: Life can be unpredictable. Travel insurance can cover unexpected events like trip cancellations, interruptions, or delays caused by reasons such as illness, natural disasters, or even last-minute work commitments.
  2. Medical Emergencies: If you face a medical emergency in a foreign country, the costs can be substantial. Travel insurance can cover medical treatments, hospital stays, and even emergency evacuations if required.
  3. Lost or Delayed Baggage: Losing your baggage can be frustrating and inconvenient. Insurance can cover the costs of replacing essential items and even provide compensation if your baggage is permanently lost.
  4. Travel Assistance: Many travel insurance policies offer 24/7 assistance for various needs, from finding local medical facilities to understanding foreign regulations.
  5. Peace of Mind: Knowing you’re covered allows you to travel with greater confidence and peace of mind, focusing on enjoying your journey rather than potential mishaps.
  6. Financial Protection: If your trip gets canceled or if a travel service provider goes out of business, insurance can ensure you’re not left bearing unexpected costs.

While we always hope for smooth travels, it’s prudent to be prepared for any eventuality. Before purchasing, review different insurance policies to ensure you choose one that aligns with your specific needs and the nature of your trip. Our team at Touring With Us can also provide guidance on reputable insurance providers if needed.

Q: I’ve booked a trip through Touring With Us and need to cancel. What steps should I take?

A: We understand that plans can change, and sometimes cancellations are unavoidable. If you find yourself needing to cancel a trip you booked with us, here’s what you should do:

  1. Contact Touring With Us ASAP: The sooner you let us know, the better. This will allow us to advise you on the best course of action and potentially minimize any cancellation fees. Reach out to us directly via our provided contact methods.
  2. If We’re Unavailable, Contact the Supplier: If, for any reason, you cannot get through to us promptly, it’s essential to contact the relevant supplier directly. This could be the airline, hotel, cruise line, or any other service provider associated with your booking. They can assist with immediate cancellation requirements.
  3. Travel Insurance Help Line: If you’ve purchased travel insurance, it’s crucial to notify your insurance provider’s help line. They can guide you on how to file a claim and what documentation might be required. This step is especially important if you’re canceling due to reasons covered by your insurance policy.
  4. Keep Records: Ensure you document any conversations or correspondence related to the cancellation, including names, dates, times, and any reference numbers. This can be helpful for insurance claims or if any discrepancies arise later.
  5. Follow Up: Once the immediate cancellation steps are taken, follow up with us at Touring With Us. We’ll provide assistance with any further requirements, offer guidance on potential rescheduling, or address any concerns you might have.

Remember, our primary goal at Touring With Us is to ensure your travel experience is smooth and stress-free, even when faced with unforeseen changes.

A: Absolutely! At Touring With Us, we believe in creating inclusive and welcoming travel experiences for everyone, including our LGBTQIA+ community members. Here’s how we ensure this:

  1. Careful Site Review: We do our best to meticulously review sites, destinations, and accommodations for their inclusivity and LGBTQIA+ friendliness. It’s important to us that every traveler feels safe and welcome during their journey.
  2. Reliable Resources: We continually educate ourselves on LGBTQIA+ issues in the travel industry and utilize trusted resources to guide our recommendations:
    • Equaldex: This comprehensive database provides an overview of LGBTQIA+ rights by country. It’s an invaluable tool for understanding the local landscape and laws. Equaldex
    • U.S. Department of State: Their website offers specific advice for LGBTQIA+ travelers, highlighting potential risks and providing guidance on traveling safely. Travel.State.Gov – LGBTI Travel Information
    • IGLTA (International LGBTQ+ Travel Association): A leading network of LGBTQ+ welcoming tourism businesses. We often rely on their expertise and recommendations to ensure our travel offerings are both inclusive and affirming. IGLTA

Q: I’ve spotted a trip on the Touring With Us website that I’m eager to book. Why can’t I secure it directly from the site?

A: Great question! At Touring With Us, we prioritize offering a diverse range of travel options by showcasing trips from our various suppliers. However, there are specific reasons why direct booking on our site isn’t always possible:

  1. Dynamic Inventory: The trips displayed on our site are pulled directly from our suppliers’ inventories. These offerings can be dynamic and frequently subject to change based on a variety of factors.
  2. Limited Availability: Some trips, especially popular or exclusive ones, have limited availability. While we do our best to provide real-time updates, there can be instances where a trip gets fully booked in a short span, and the real-time status might not reflect immediately on our site.
  3. Personalized Service: Direct booking doesn’t always allow for the personalized touch we aim to provide our customers. By interacting with us directly for bookings, we can ensure that the trip meets all your requirements, answer any questions you might have, and provide any additional information or services you might need.
  4. Up-to-Date Information: Our team stays continually updated on trip specifics, potential changes, and any special promotions or nuances that might not be immediately visible on the site. By booking through our agents, you benefit from this inside knowledge.
  5. Ensuring Accuracy: By processing bookings manually, we can double-check all details, ensuring accuracy and avoiding potential hiccups that can occur with automated systems.

In essence, while our website offers a fantastic overview of potential travel experiences, direct interaction with our team at Touring With Us ensures a smoother, more tailored, and up-to-date booking process. If you’re interested in a specific trip, please reach out to us, and we’ll be more than happy to assist you in securing your dream vacation!

Q: I have diverse travel needs, from family trips to solo adventures and group expeditions. Does Touring With Us cater to all of these?

  1. Family Bookings: We understand the nuances of family travel, from ensuring child-friendly accommodations to crafting itineraries that cater to all age groups. We’re here to ensure your family trip is memorable and hassle-free.
  2. Solo Bookings: For the independent traveler, we offer a range of destinations and experiences tailored to solo adventures, ensuring safety, enjoyment, and the chance to meet like-minded travelers if desired.
  3. Group Bookings: Whether it’s a reunion, corporate retreat, or a themed expedition, we’re adept at handling the logistics and unique requirements of group travel, ensuring every member has a seamless experience.

However, while our travel offerings are vast, there are a few limits:

  • Space Adventures: While we don’t currently offer bookings to outer space, if you’re keen on an extraterrestrial experience, we’ve got the next best thing: a trip to Roswell, NM! Dive deep into the world of UFOs and explore the unknown.
  • Restricted Destinations: We prioritize the safety and well-being of our travelers. As such, we avoid bookings to destinations that are off-limits or restricted as per the U.S. Department of State advisories. You can review these advisories here.
  • Exclusive Access: As much as we’d love to, there are certain places even we can’t get you into, like Disney’s Club 33 or the Vatican Secret Archives. But rest assured, we can provide fantastic alternatives to ensure your trip is still exceptional.

In essence, Touring With Us is committed to providing diverse, safe, and tailored travel experiences, no matter your travel style or desires. If you have any unique requests or questions, don’t hesitate to reach out, and we’ll do our utmost to accommodate!

Q: I’m itching for a vacation, but I’m not sure where to go. Can Touring With Us help me find the perfect getaway?

A: Absolutely! At Touring With Us, we understand that sometimes the mere desire to travel is the only spark you need. Here’s how we approach such wanderlust:

  1. Understanding Your Travel Style: We’ll initiate our process with a conversation to grasp your travel preferences, interests, and any specific experiences you might be craving. Whether you’re into serene beach retreats, adrenaline-packed escapades, or deep cultural immersions, we’re here to guide you.
  2. Step Out of Your Comfort Zone: If you’re feeling adventurous and open to trying something entirely new, we can craft a unique itinerary that might challenge your usual travel style, introducing you to novel experiences and destinations.

Q: I’m looking to embark on a trip that’s incredibly photogenic for my social media. Can Touring With Us help with that?

A: Definitely! At Touring With Us, we understand the allure of visually stunning destinations that make for great social media content. Here’s how we approach “Instagrammable” trips:

  1. Picture-Perfect Destinations: We’re well-versed in identifying destinations that offer a mix of natural beauty, architectural wonders, and unique visual elements. Whether it’s the azure waters of the Maldives, the historic streets of Rome, or the vibrant markets of Marrakech, we know where to direct you for those enviable shots.
  2. Balancing Visuals with Authenticity: While we can undoubtedly plan a trip centered around photo ops, we pride ourselves on crafting journeys that also deliver profound, lasting memories. For instance, Bali is a favorite among Instagram aficionados for its scenic landscapes and iconic spots. While we’ll guide you to the best places for those picture-perfect moments, we also emphasize the importance of diving into the island’s rich culture, engaging with the locals, and experiencing its many non-visual treasures.
  3. Professional Tips: If you’re keen on enhancing your photography skills or getting insights on the best time of day for certain shots, we can provide guidance or even arrange for a local photography guide in specific destinations.
  4. Beyond the Camera: Remember, while capturing stunning images is rewarding, immersing oneself in the experiences, flavors, sounds, and stories of a destination is equally, if not more, enriching. Our goal is to ensure you leave with both a camera and heart full of memories.

In essence, while we’re excited to help you curate a visually appealing trip, Touring With Us also strives to ensure you connect deeply with the places you visit, going beyond the surface. After all, the most cherished travel stories often emerge from unplanned, genuine moments.

Q: While traveling with Touring With Us, can I expect free upgrades or some extra perks? How does this work?

A: Great question! At Touring With Us, our aim is always to provide our travelers with an enhanced experience. Here’s how we approach the topic of upgrades and perks:

  1. Building Relationships: Over the years, we’ve cultivated strong relationships with our suppliers, from hotels to airlines and other service providers. When you book through us, we often reach out to these partners to let them know that a valued “Touring With Us” client will be traveling with them, thereby exploring the possibility of any special arrangements or upgrades.
  2. Special Occasions: Celebrating a milestone? Be it a honeymoon, anniversary, birthday, or any significant event, do let us know. We try to communicate this to the respective establishments, as many are willing to add little touches to make your occasion even more memorable.
  3. Peak Times and Events: It’s essential to note that securing upgrades or additional perks can be challenging during high travel seasons, major events, or when a particular destination is in high demand. However, we still make the effort, keeping your best interests in mind.
  4. No Guarantees, But Efforts Always: While we can’t guarantee free upgrades or perks (as they’re often at the discretion of the service provider), you can be assured that we always put in our best effort to enhance your travel experience wherever possible.

In essence, with Touring With Us, you’re not just another traveler. We view each of our clients as part of our extended family and always strive to give you the best, both in terms of value and memorable experiences.

Q: When I book through Touring With Us, will I be able to utilize my elite status and accumulate rewards points for flights, hotel stays, car rentals, etc.?

A: A great query, especially for frequent travelers who’ve invested time and resources in loyalty programs! Here’s how it typically works when you book through Touring With Us:

  1. Varies by Supplier: The ability to use status benefits and earn reward points can vary based on the supplier and how the booking is made. While many suppliers honor status benefits and allow point accrual for bookings made through travel agencies like ours, there are exceptions.
  2. Case in Point – Hilton: For instance, Hilton has specific policies regarding the accrual of rewards points when booked through travel agents. When booking a Hilton property through Touring With Us, you might not be eligible to earn Hilton Honors points. You can get more detailed information about this policy directly from Hilton’s FAQ on the topic: Hilton Honors Points & Money FAQ.
  3. Always Inform Us: If accruing points or utilizing your elite status benefits is a priority for you, please let us know at the outset of your booking process. We can then guide you accordingly and, wherever possible, make bookings in a way that ensures you get your deserved benefits.
  4. Status Benefits: Even if a booking method doesn’t allow for point accrual, many suppliers will still honor status-related benefits like priority check-in, free baggage, or room upgrades, provided they are aware of your status.

While we strive to provide you with the best value and experience when booking through Touring With Us, there are certain industry policies beyond our control. However, we always aim to be transparent, guide you effectively, and ensure you gain the maximum benefits from your travels.

Q: When traveling with Touring With Us, how early should I be at the airport before my flight, and how do you decide on the length of my layovers between flights?

A: Excellent questions! Ensuring you have a smooth travel experience, from airport arrivals to layovers, is a top priority for us. Here’s our approach:

  1. Airport Arrival Time:
    • Domestic Flights: For domestic flights, we typically recommend arriving at the airport at least 2 hours prior to your departure time.
    • International Flights: For international journeys, arriving 3 hours in advance is a general guideline. However, depending on the airport and specific airline policies, this can vary.
    • Be sure to check with the airport!
  2. Determining Layover Duration:
    • Balancing Act: We weigh factors such as the best price, convenience, and availability when determining layovers. Planning ahead amplifies opportunities for better layover choices.
    • Airport Operational Factors: Some airports are notorious for prolonged security checks, frequent delays, or complex terminal transfers. In such cases, we typically recommend longer layovers to ensure you comfortably make your connecting flight.
    • Exceptional Airports: Some airports are destinations in themselves. For instance, Singapore’s Changi Airport is an experience worth relishing. From its iconic indoor waterfall, butterfly garden, movie theaters, to complimentary city tours for longer layovers, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. In such scenarios, we might propose longer layovers, turning them into an enjoyable part of your journey.
  3. Customized Recommendations: Each traveler and trip is unique. We always consider your preferences, potential stress points, and any specific needs you might have when proposing layover durations.
  4. Stay Updated: While our recommendations serve as a solid guideline, always keep an eye on airline communications, especially during peak seasons or unforeseen circumstances like weather disturbances. Airlines may have specific check-in cutoff times that you’ll need to adhere to.

In essence, at Touring With Us, we utilize a blend of our extensive travel experience, gathered data, and your personal preferences to craft the ideal travel itinerary for you. Your peace of mind and enjoyment are paramount to us!

Travel Agency Culture

Q: I noticed that you don’t offer Airbnb bookings. Why is that?

A: Great observation! While online marketplaces like Airbnb have become popular for offering unique lodging experiences, there are several reasons we at Touring With Us have opted not to include them in our bookings:

  1. Validation Concerns:
    • Property Verification: Airbnb and similar platforms offer a vast number of properties which are, at times, difficult to validate in terms of quality, safety, and accuracy of the listing.
    • Legal Issues: Some listings can potentially be in violation of local regulations, including HOA bylaws, city, and zoning standards. This can lead to unexpected cancellations or legal disputes during your stay.
  2. Safety and Standards:
    • Regulations: Unlike hotels, which typically adhere to strict industry and safety regulations, Airbnb properties might not undergo the same rigorous checks. This can sometimes compromise the safety and quality of your stay.
    • Dedicated Staff: The absence of a professional staff at these rentals means that in case of emergencies, be it medical or something as simple as being locked out, assistance might not be readily available.
  3. Privacy Concerns:
    • Some Airbnb hosts have been reported to have surveillance devices in their properties, raising privacy concerns.
    • Additionally, some hosts might impose house rules or requirements that are not in line with typical business lodging practices.
  4. Consistency: Hotels and traditional accommodations generally offer a more consistent experience in terms of service, amenities, and standards. While Airbnb can offer unique experiences, it also comes with the potential for unexpected surprises.

In summary, our primary goal at Touring With Us is to ensure your travels are seamless, safe, and of the highest quality. While Airbnb has its merits, the aforementioned concerns influence our decision to prioritize more traditional accommodations for our clients. However, we’re always listening to our customers, and as the travel landscape evolves, so will our offerings!

Q: I’ve heard about the benefits of hidden-city ticketing or skiplagging in getting lower airfares. Is this something Touring With Us supports or participates in?

A: While we understand the appeal of hidden-city ticketing or skiplagging to get favorable airfares, there are several reasons why Touring With Us chooses not to engage in or support this practice:

  1. Ethical Responsibility to Suppliers: Our relationships with our travel suppliers are founded on trust and ethical dealings. Participating in skiplagging, a practice which suppliers frown upon, would jeopardize these relationships. The suppliers not only lose money on the fare but also can’t resell the empty seat, leading to a double hit on their revenue.
  2. Potential Consequences for Travelers: Engaging in hidden-city ticketing can lead to various issues for the traveler, such as having frequent flyer miles confiscated or, in extreme cases, being banned by airlines. It could also disrupt return or connecting flights if the airline becomes aware of the practice.
  3. Contractual Obligations: Our contract agreements with independent travel advisors clearly prohibit the promotion or use of skiplagging. This ensures that our clients receive the best possible advice that doesn’t violate any terms or conditions set by the airlines.
  4. Long-Term Vision: We believe in providing long-term value and building lasting relationships with our clients and suppliers. Skiplagging, though it might offer short-term gains, isn’t conducive to this vision.

We always strive to find the best possible deals and experiences for our clients while maintaining ethical standards. So while we won’t support hidden-city ticketing, we will do everything in our power to ensure you get excellent value and a memorable travel experience.

Q: Do travel agents receive recruitment bonuses or are they expected to recruit new employees at Touring With Us?

A: No, at Touring With Us, there is no emphasis on agent recruitment, nor are there any recruitment bonuses or incentives available. We do not operate on a multi-level marketing (MLM) model, and our agents do not have a “downline” to manage. This stance is partially in response to the nature of MLM travel agencies which operate differently.

Our agents are encouraged to focus on providing exceptional service to their clients. If individuals express interest in joining Touring With Us, agents are advised to direct them to our job board where they can find more information on available positions and how to apply.

The only thing close to a recruitment incentive we offer is a metaphorical virtual high five for being part of the Touring With Us community and aiding in its organic growth! Our primary goal is to maintain a professional and supportive environment where our agents can thrive and deliver memorable travel experiences to our clients.
