Why Should I Use A Travel Agent; When I Can Book My Own Travel Needs With Online Booking Services (Expedia, Travelocity,Orbitz...)?:
My services are completely free! I will be with you thru every step of the planning process and even after your trip! I offer those extra little magical touches like free itinerary planning, reserving your dining locations/times, and monitor for any discount or promotional that might be offered during your visit!
Still not sure; watch this short video which explains why it is important to choose a travel agent!
How Much Do You Charge For Your Services?:
We do not charge for our services. We are paid by our suppliers (ie..tour operators, hotels, or package vendors). All our quotes are free and no obligations are required.
What Is The Best Time of Year To Travel?:
It depends on where you are going. Spring -Break and Summer is a big travel season to most destinations, but there are still good deals out there. If you want to take in New Year's Eve on Times Square in NYC, then you'll pay more for a stay than at other times of the year. Europe in the fall and winter can be a good value. the key is flexibility - the more flexible you are, the more travel opportunities are available to you, and at a good price.
Do I Have To Pay For The Entire Trip Up Front?:
In most instances, you will only need to provide a deposit to reserve your package. Generally the deposit is 10%- 20% of the total package price. With that being said; any airfare that is booked from the package supplier (ie...Disney, Carnival, Princess etc..., will need to be paid in full at time of booking.
**Most Disney Resort packages only require a deposit of $200!**
Do I Really Need The Trip Insurance?:
Travel insurance coverage can minimize the considerable financial risks of traveling: accidents, illness, missed flights, canceled tours, lost baggage, theft, terrorism, travel-company bankruptcies, emergency evacuation, and getting your body home if you die. Each traveler's potential loss varies, depending on how much of your trip is prepaid, the refundability of the air ticket you purchased, your state of health, the value of your luggage, where you're traveling, the financial health of your tour company and airline, and what coverage you already have (through your medical insurance, homeowners' or renters' insurance, and/or credit card).
For some travelers, insurance is a good deal; for others, it's not. What are the chances you'll need it? How willing are you to take risks? How much is peace of mind worth to you? Take these considerations into account, understand your options, and make an informed decision for your trip.
Here at Beyond Infinity we do recommend Travel Insurance! If a client chooses not to purchase insurance a waiver must be signed!
How Far In Advance Should I Book?:
As soon as you are ready! I usually plan my own trips from 9-14 months out and I have found most clients approach me to help them plan anywhere from 4 months to 12 months prior. Of course, if the urge for a weekend getaway next month hits, don't hesitate to contact us. One caveat about very advance planning - if you book your Disney trip in one year but actually travel the next, rate increases may affect the price. This can hold true for any trip, so be sure to ask if rates are guaranteed.
What's the Difference Between a Passport Card and a Passport?:
A Passport Card allows the holder to enter the United States only by land or sea from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda.
A Passport book allows the owner to travel to any country in the world, unless otherwise cited.

How Do I Get The Best Deal On Airfare?:
I always recommend a travel fare finder such as Travelocity's Fare Watcher to notify you of any changes in fares to a specific destination. Sign up for e-mail sales alerts. If a client is interested in a package vacation to Disney or anywhere else, we normally check the rates on air that can be bundled with the package. In many cases, the fares get better if clients book directly from the airline websites. The key to getting really good airfares is being flexible, either with dates, times and surrounding airports. I'll use myself as an example - when searching for fares to Miami from our Local international airport in December I was disappointed to find nothing under $585 per person. I widened my search to another airport and I paid less than $300 per person instead.
Can I Really Take A Vacation On A Budget?:
You can do this with any kind of vacation if you do some really good planning. However, I have some clients who prefer to pay for most expenses up front. These folks are excellent prospects for all-inclusive resorts, cruises and escorted tours. In most instances, lodging, some or most meals, entertainment, and transfers are included in the vacation price. Of course, not every single cost can be eliminated prior to departure. Souvenirs and some gratuities for example, have to be accounted for while you travel.
So Should I Really Stay On Disney Property?:
If only it were that easy to decide, right? It can be a little overwhelming, especially to clients who are traveling to Walt Disney World in particular, for the first time. Your budget has to be a consideration. If you book a stay at a resort that is way beyond your comfort level financially, I assure you it will make it very difficult to enjoy your vacation. ALL of the Disney Resorts have their own special attributes but whether you choose All-Star Sports or the Grand Floridian the benefits, such as Extra Magic Hours, remain the same. I do recommend staying with Disney. However, I am not paying for that vacation, so that decision ultimately has to be the travelers. Book what you can afford and select from that category - there are different resorts with completely different "feels" in each of the four price categories. From time to time specials and discounts may become available. In that event, you can move up to another category or resort if you wish. It's a good idea to let your travel agent know when you book so they can be searching and ready if a discount becomes available. Do not book a resort priced higher than you can afford in the hopes or need for a discount later. Those deals are never guaranteed.
