The trouble with package tours… …

1 Comment


Life is short. Money is limited. All fellow travellers with unsatiable wanderlust will agree with these two statements.

Library shelves are full to the brim with all the travel books about exciting destinations, constantly reminding me that there are still another 100, 500 or even 1001 trips I have to conquer before my death comes.

So you can imagine how fuming mad I was when for two consecutive years, the same travel agency cancelled my trip to Turkey because there weren’t enough people to form the tour group.

This is the trouble with a less-than-popular destination with a small travel agency. Even the alternatives the small agency has are quite pathetic.

For my husband and I, we now feel safer to go for 2-to-go tour or we settle our own flights and get local land tour to help us with accommodation and tour.

Now, I have to wait till end of next week to confirm my trip in June. There are several options but I still hope ultimately I can conquer Turkey this year.

  1. It’s unimaginable that CS travel will do that & even give misleading information about just requiring 10 pax to go or one can buy air tix from them should they cancel. I really wonder whether they know by having a staff who promised clients wrong info, that they are actually doing a severe damage to their reputation…. Something which travel agencies should have avoided in the face of stiff competitions by the big players.
