Research & Planning Fee

A Research and Planning Fee is similar to a consultation fee. It is a flat transaction charge for booking a trip segment. I charge trip planning and research fees to support time spent researching, planning, booking, verifying and validating trip detail for our clients. This fee also covers time spend supporting clients during their travel. We consider every trip special. We know that you want to enjoy your trip so we take care of the details for you. We take the hassle out of researching and planning your special trip.  Planning fees help us to do that.  Planning fees are non-refundable. Under certain circumstances (i.e. promos, customer loyalty rewards etc.) we may waive the fee.

Philanthropy – Fund Raising

A group cruise can be a fun vacation with friends, family and colleagues, but it can also be used to raise funds for your favorite charity. Cruise lines donate fund based on fares sold.  All nonprofits are eligible such as churches, YMCAs, civic organizations, scholarship funds and hospitals etc.   Groups that are not nonprofits may raise funds on behalf of a nonprofit.  Any group that books and sells a minimum of 8 staterooms at double occupancy rate is eligible to participate.

For more information on how to Cruise for Funds, schedule a 15 minute call with me. Get your Courtesy Dream Getaway Discovery Call here. Pick a time that is convenient for you: (CLICK TO SCHEDULE),  

Travel Protection

Travel insurance is highly recommended to protect your investment from potential losses. Travel insurance can be helpful should issues arise before or during your vacation: last-minute changes, lost luggage, delayed flights, hotel issues, medical emergencies, etc. Travel protection will be offered to each guest. It is the responsibility of each traveler to accept or decline travel insurance at the time of purchase.
