Default Travel Agent Services

Hi Everyone!

I am a Calgary based travel agent. I offer full travel services with no fees - I do all the research and booking for you and you get the same or better price than you find online!

I am finally starting a thread because we've been told of some big sales on Black Friday. Now - what 'big sale' actually entails is up for some debate. Some people think it's going to be great, some people think it will be underwhelming. In any case, it may be worth checking out.

If you were thinking of getting away this winter (or summer), contact me and let me know what you are thinking. I can add you to my list of quotes to do on Friday and will send you a personalized quote.

If you have any travel needs after Black Friday, please keep me in mind! I can arrange flights, hotels, all inclusive vacations, Disney vacations, cruise vacations, weddings, multi generational travel and more.

I am also more than happy to answer any questions you may have!

Check out my site: www.impacttravel.ca or follow me on Facebook (facebook.com/impacttravel.ca) or Twitter (@ImpactTravelCA).

I am working on negotiating some discounts for CP members - they wouldn't apply to any sales from Black Friday but I hope to have something in place for the beginning of December.

Norwegian Cruise Lines - Pick two bonus offers including unlimited beverage package, unlimited specialty dining, free wifi and free shore excursions, plus on some sailings, 3rd and 4th passengers in the same room sail free

I'll add more as they become available!

Let me know if I can help you out with any travel research or bookings!

I tried a different agent for corporate travel and found they weren't any cheaper than what I could find online. Do you do corporate travel?

Yes! But, it's booked and managed by my manager. If you are interested you can send me your information in a PM. I can pass it on to my manager and she can get in touch with you. Sometimes we can find cheaper travel and sometimes not - definitely not guaranteed to be cheaper, unfortunately. We have the ability to search a bit more efficiently so the booking and search process can be a bit quicker - plus you don't have to do any work and there aren't any booking fees so it could still be beneficial for you.

Anyway, let me know if you want me to put you in contact with my manager for some more information.

FFR is Great to deal with!
The fiance and I met with her a few weeks ago to go over some honey moon idea's as I've been the most difficult to narrow down a location/place to stay and what we want all within a budget we were comfortable with.

After much deliberation and back and forth, and through all my questions and second guessing Liz was able to help us pick a spot and put a deposit down for September.

Thanks again for putting up with me, we're looking forward to September already!

Cheers,

There are some fantastic last minute (end of March) and end of April travel deals on right now for all inclusive vacations and cruise trips. Send me a message if you're looking and I'll see what I can find for you!

Also, Vegas under $400 a person for flight and hotel. Just sayin'....

I'm looking to surprise my wife with a kid-free all-inclusive in November-ish. When would the best time to start looking be? I know we're in the busy season, so is it priced as the busy season that far out still?

You may get lucky and find a sale this far out but best prices will show up in September. But to get the great last minute prices you need to be flexible on departure date, destination and resort. If you have very specific dates, or want a specific hotel you should look at booking earlier.

Edit: I can take a look at prices if you want and let you know my opinion on whether to book or wait. Just send me a PM.
