Happy New Year!

Well so far, this year is off to an amazing start - in all the years I have traveled I have never seen so many GREAT deals being offered for destinations spanning the globe.

As specialists for Hawaii we are pleased to say that our wholesalers are offering phenomenal deals, finally! We are seeing rates we haven't seen for several years, and most hotel offers make you want to pack your bags and travel now - the deals are that good!

The Caribbean is another hot market where we are seeing multiple free night offers and/or free meals all on properties from deluxe on up to ultra luxury, this can amount to $1000's off just a five night stay!

Many properties in the South Pacific are offering stay 5/pay 3 packages and/or discounted air rates as these destinations vie for honeymooners and romantics.

Europe has been hot, hot, hot as travelers are seeing the value of the dollar increase as the price of vacations all over Europe drop to lure vacationers. Remember, if you can travel BEFORE June you can save several hundred dollars in air/land packages as this is low season. If you can travel in May this is a great time to visit Europe - weather is good, lines are shorter, cost of travel is less!

Still one of the best values out there is in cruising where we are seeing unprecedented savings for all types of cruises - deluxe to ultra luxury, short cruises to world cruises - the savings are just incredible.

Private home rentals are really the only area where we are not seeing discounted rates being offered consistently. These types of vacationers are typically not affected by the downturns in the economy.

So all in all this is your year - the year of the traveler. For all of those who can make travel part of this years agenda you will have many, many options - more than you have had in years past. The best thing of all is that you will be paying much less for any vacation you go on this year! And should you book your vacation with us and the price drops we will be able to get the new reduced price! So don't be afraid of booking now because you think you will lose out on getting a lower price!

Look wisely at all that is out there, if it looks too good to be true it probably is, and make sure to call us. We want your business - we will work hard for you and with you to make sure that you have nothing less than what you deserve, and Incredible Journey!

    This is shaping up to be a difficult year for the travel industry. By almost any measure-money spent on vacations, international arrivals, business bookings-travel numbers are declining. According to Geoffrey Lipman, assistant secretary general of the UN World Tourism Organization, the math is simple: "Macroeconomics determines the curve of the travel industry," he explains. And these days all macroeconomic indicators are decidedly down.
