The economy is on it's way up again....But travel bookings from the U.S. is still relatively low. When no one was booking travel...the airlines reduced air service so much that the demand was still higher than the supply...so prices did NOT go down. But now with the major airlines gearing up for more deman...the supply is greater than the demand (at least for the moment)....And you know what that means: GREAT DEALS to lots of GREAT PLACES for Summer 2013! Even Charter Air companies out of Atlanta to the Caribbean are having a hard time filling all their seats. Watch for deals like $699 per person for Airfare, 7 nights in a 4 Star Beachfront All Inclusive resort (not a hotel) but they will only last thru the 1st week of August and then they are all gone. This year, Cruising is NOT the best way to go. With the Carnival nightmares that have ensued, many of their ships have been put in dry dock to be refurbished (inside and out) whilst lines like Royal Caribbean have many new mega-ships that are staying sold out. Meaning? Prices are high and quality is down.
Europe is on the rise and that means prices will be too
in the latter Fall 2013 or Winter 2014. Until then, there are some great airfares in large 'hub' airports and chain hotels are really making deals....This may not be the best year to stay in a small Inn and opt for the more commercial chain...And spend the savings on horseback riding in Umbria or Truffle hunting with wine in Tuscany.... Wherever your path takes you ....We can help you make it a real Destination!
We wont go anywhere again without seeing them 1st! – I am so blown awa by these ladies that I found 2 different listings on City Search and wanted to express my happiness on both (just in case!). At first, I thought is was a pain to have to make an appointment but it turns out that this is to ensure that you have your own personal uninterrupted time with the agent which is cool. It made me and my fiance feel more important to them and; after all the great info and money saving tips that we got (not to mention the best itinerary ... my fiance is lovin me for this one!) We didnt even go where we'd planned (st lucia). At our agents insistance, we went to Ireland! Where is it written that non-beach people must go to a beach for their honeymoon, our agent said. WOW, what a trip!!!
We cant wait to go back...at least to Greystone Travel ....we now joke that .."who knows where we will end up after we go there?". Our travel agent said that 70% of her clients really have no clue where THEY should go which is why Trip Advisor has so many negative comments. It being our honeymoon, she had a saying that went something like this...."your honeymoon memories will last the lifetime of yoru marriage so it better be a good memory!"
Well, thanks Greystone Travel....it was and we have recounted the trip many many times already (and we JUST got home!!). As well, we are recounting our cash because Ireland saved us a bundle!! She even told us how to get the best deal on Euros!!
I had a GREAT experience from start to finish! – I made the mistake of booking travel online because I thought it would save me money and Expedia was so quick to give me pricing when the agent took all day. But, then after I starting getting more involved in the 'process' with the agent..i realized...THIS IS PERSONAL SERVICE! Not only was Greystone's prices less than the online agencies but they helped me make a great decision on where to go and what to do which, in my opinion, was PRICELESS!! The recommendations I was given for my destination were spot on! It truly made the entire experience great! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AGENCY and I feel good that I am not giving my tax money to another agency in another state by booking online. Anyone who books online either has nothing to do all day but look at all those ridiculously confusing websites or are ignorant to the difference. I will never let anyone handle my travel again except Greystone Travel! Thanks again, Angela!!!
A truly caring group of women! I wouldnt go anywhere without them! – I have trusted the girls at Greystone for years! I started out with a tight budget and no clue where
or when to travel. They have held my hand and helped me plan within MY budget for years! As well, anyone I have ever recommended them to raves about how great they are! I wouldnt trust
anyone else to handle my travel because Angela teaches the girls to put personal relationships above profit that is obvious to me and all my friends!
rudest lady I've met in a long time. – I know it's hard to get customer service these days but insulting customers can't be a good idea. YUK!
BIGGEST RIPOFF IN THE INDUSTRY – Better off using the internet. Unhelpful employees. Overall unprofessional business.
