Travel Tips from Julie

  • A hotel may invoice the traveler with a "No show charge" for reservations not canceled before the hotel's cancellation deadline. In most cases reservations must be canceled by 4:00 pm on scheduled day of arrival, however some hotels or resorts may require notice of cancellation as much as seven days or more in advance.
  • A Saturday night stay could cut the cost of a ticket in half or more.
  • Travelers can request advertised weekend or promotional rates.
  • The airlines allocate a different number of seats within various fare categories on each flight and that allocation changes daily. The number of seats may vary with the time of year, days of week or time of day, depending on the inventories the airline has allocated for a given flight.
  • The less expensive a fare the more restrictive it will be.
  • Using an alternative airport can often save money.
  • Earlier or later departure/arrival times can reduce the cost of a ticket.
  • Booking reservations in advance can result in a lower fare and BETTER SEAT ASSIGNMENTS.
  • Many nonrefundable tickets are reusable.
  • Airlines require you check in between 3 hours and 90 minutes prior to departure. The check in time is determined by the airline and destination. Please contact Julie for more details regarding check in times
  • Changes in flight reservations and cancellations may result in additional airline service fees.
