Holly kicked off this weeks episode sharing her Galapagos/Ecuador knowledge and experience. Callers had many questions about traveling in the future; including what will Hawaii be like in July? Will September trips to Normandy happen? Is Romania open for business? Lastly, we had a caller testimonial for Disney River Cruise!
This week, our featured travel Advisor was Sarah Timmers talking all things Tahiti, such as the islands of Tahiti and what makes them special! Callers were also curious when they would receive Future Cruise Credits from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, if trips in September will happen, and when they should start booking for Alaska 2021.
This week, Rose Gray announced that moving forward there will be one featured Vacation Travel Specialist in the first segment of the show. Today it was Kimberly Roethel, as our African Specialist. She has had the opportunity to travel to Kenya and will be experiencing Namibia this November. Callers also asked about major cruise lines, bookings, refunds/cancellations of Viking River Cruise, and recommendations for a 10 day "perfect" beach vacation!
As of 5/1, most major airlines have announced that passengers will be required to wear masks, and callers weighed in and said they would be absolutely fine with that. Rose also discussed if she will be hosting an Alaska Land & Sea next year and if travel to Norway in September will be safe. Callers also let Rose know they appreciated the advice of "be patient" which resulted in a refund from Disney Cruise Line.
This week Rose Gray discussed a variety of topics, including island hopping in Hawaii, Caribbean resorts and where callers plan to travel next. She answered questions, such as will the attractions be open in Washington D.C. for Veterans Day this year? Is 90 days for an airline refund normal? and more!
Rose Gray discussed a lot of topics this week, including airline refunds vs. vouchers. What are your options? How do future cruise credits work? A caller also shared that our advice of patience and persistence paid off. The airline refunded all bag and seat fees!
This week callers had many questions including, is it possible to do an entire Alaska trip by rail? Would flying to retrieve a family member be considered essential travel? Does travel insurance carry over from a cancelled trip to the newly rebooked trip? Do I dare book a trip to Jamaica at the end of July?
This week callers wanted to know if the Holland America Alaska Cruise would still be happening in May, and if a trip is cancelled by the tour operator, is the travel insurance lost? We also had a caller who loved Rose's recommendation of El Dorado Royale, and asked if there was any other recommendations when traveling to Riviera Maya? Lastly, Rose discusses why it is in your best interest to wait for your cruise line, tour operator or airline to cancel your trip!
This week, callers had many questions such as... Am I able to claim the savings if the price of my airline ticket has dropped? How can I make sure the next time I buy travel insurance it covers a pandemic? Why does the Online Travel Agency keep the tax on an airline ticket when refunding it? We also got a call from a client complimenting Kimberly in the Sheboygan office who helped reschedule a 30th anniversary trip to Lithuania, East Germany and Poland!
This week Rose Gray answered questions such as: Once the Major League Baseball season resumes, which cities where the Brewers would offer more than just Baseball? Will travel insurance protect an Airbnb booking? Would the next couple of months be a good time to drive to a National Park for camping?
