Q: What services do you provide?

A: I will help you plan, book, and manage any type of travel or vacation. Is your payment date coming up? I'll remind you.  Did you want to surprise your partner by having chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne waiting in your stateroom? I'll order that for you. 

As an added bonus, I'll regularly check for any new discounts that may apply to your trip so you can make sure you're getting the best deal. You won't get that service if you book direct!

Q: Are your services REALLY free?

A: Yes my services are FREE. When you book a trip with me, I get paid by the supplier of your trip. So if you book a cruise with That Cruise Line, That Cruise Line pays me after your trip.

Q: Is it going to be more expensive to book through you?

A: No. Travel agents still get access to great rates and extras. If you can find the exact same itinerary for less elsewhere, I may be able to price match. You have nothing to lose!

Q: How do I pay?  Do I pay you?

A: I NEVER directly handle your money. I book directly with legitimate industry suppliers. You'll never see a charge on your card from or send a check to "Linda's Travel Hut", you'll see the name of an established travel supplier such as Globus or Princess Cruises.

Q: All that sounds great, but why can't I just book my trip on Expedia?

A: You can, but you shouldn't. I am here to provide you with personalized service and serve as an advocate, and advisor for your trip. When you request a quote, you won't have to look through thousands of reviews to try and find out which trip is right for you. I'll use my expertise to help you choose the best fit for your needs. That way you won't end up on a "booze cruise" when what you really wanted was a relaxing upscale experience.

In addition, when you book with a company such as Expedia, they become your travel agent and help will have to come from them. Recent cancellations due to COVID-19 have really shown the importance of using a travel agent. When you have an issue, getting through to a real person at a large company can take HOURS of waiting on hold. I have spent hours on hold for my clients and I am willing to do that for you! 

Save yourself the stress and let me take care of that for you. 

Q: I just booked a trip on my own. Can you still help me?

A: Maybe! If you recently booked a trip on your own, I may be able to transfer it so you can still receive my services. Contact me with your reservation number and I'll find out.

Q: I love to plan my own trips. Can I book with you but do all the planning myself?

A: Definitely! I love planning too so I get it! Book with me and I can do as little or as much as you'd like. You'll get the benefit of having me as a resource in case any issues should arise, but you can keep the reins.
