HOSTED   VACATIONS    -   Hosted   Vacations   are   offered   by   many   of   the   escorted   tour   companies   as   they   expand   their   product offering.      These   hosted   vacations   run   the   gambit   from   European   city   packages   with   a   guide   and   one   tour.      They   also   include African Safaris   where   you   can   custom   package   whichever   countries   you   desire   to   Central   and   South   American   cities   that   come   with   an English speaking guide and driver to welcome you. WHY BOOK AN ESCORTED TOUR OR HOSTED VACATION WITH TRAVEL AGENT? You   might   be   surprised   at   the   vast   product   offering   travel   agents   have   with   Escorted   Tours   and   Hosted   Vacations.      We   sell   Amtrak Vacations, Alaska   Railroad   and   overseas   train   journeys.      We   handle   Brendan   and   CIE   for   Ireland.      Brewster   and   Rocky   Mountaineer for   Candaian   Rockies.      As   a   registered   travel   agency,   we   also   book   Tauck   Tours,   Trafalgar,   Collette,   Insight,   Globus,   Cosmos, Mayflower   Tours   and   other   escorted   tour   suppliers.      Many   suppliers   sell   the   same   destinations   so   its   important   to   have   someone help   you   sort   out   all   the   informaion.      Sometimes   with   travel,   there   are   compromises   with   destinations,   season   of   travel   and   the   pace of the tour so its helpful to be able to discuss pros and cons of particular offerings with an experience travel agent. Use   a   travel   agent   to   book   escorted   vacations   as   we   are   familiar   with   promotional   programs   including   reduced   cost   or   “free”   air.     Travel   agents   can   compare   published   airfares   to   contracted   tour   airfare   as   sometimes   one   is   cheaper   than   the   other.      Tour   companies will   usually   only   sell   contracted   air.      Most   companies   warn   you   they   require   you   to   pay   extra   for   airport   transfers   if   you   are   booking your   own   airfare   but   the   routing/price   might   still   be   better   than   the   contracted   air.      Also,   if   you   are   doing   a   deviation   on   the   airfare from   the   tour   dates   for   pre   or   post   stays,   separate   airfare   might   be   your   best   option   as   tour   companies   charge   a   deviation   fee   when you   depart   from   the   tour   dates.      Some   tour   companies   have   a   separate   promotion   for   land   only   if   you   don’t   want   the   free   airfare from   a   far   off   city.     A   travel   agency   has   a   proprietary   airline   computer   system   that   has   direct   access   to   most   airlines   and   hotel   chains for   an   unbiased   flow   of   information.      A   travel   agency   is   usually   located   in   your   local   market   or   region   and   will   have   experience specific airlines,  back door routings and nearby airports that can make All   escorted   tour   companies   have   you   read   and   sign   off   on   terms   and   conditions.      These   include   your   acknowledgement   that   you have   the   required   visas,   empty   pages   in   your   passport   and   months   left   on   the   passport   to   be   able   to   enter   each   foreign   country.      Visas are   permission   stamps   that   allow   you   entry   into   a   given   country.      It   is   important   to   cost   the   visa   work   with   a   given   trip   as   it   may   be
