Recently I came across a Good Housekeeping article. The headline captured me in a millisecond: “The Outrageous Fees You Want to Avoid.” From annual credit card fees to late fees, I certainly wanted to avoid them all! And as a Global Discovery Vacations member, you already get to avoid one.
Airline Booking Fees Are Waived for Members in Good Standing!
Did you know as a Global Discovery Vacations member, you have access to a full-service travel agency? That travel agency is staffed by professional, fully bonded travel agents who do things like reserve cruise vacations, rent cars and, yes, make airfare arrangements, at no additional service charge.
Good Housekeeping points out that airline booking fees can cost you $15 to $35 if you want to talk to an agent for help. Many airlines call it a convenience fee. Sure, the fee is waived by the airline if you book travel online, but with Global Discovery Vacations you can talk to a travel agent who can help you find the very best flight for no additional fee. Zip. Zero. Nada.
They might even save you on airline luggage fees. This fee also made the Good Housekeeping list, averaging $15 to $35 for the first bag—the first bag! While your Global Discovery Vacations travel agent can’t waive the bag fee, she or he can look for an airline going your way that allows a first or second bag free. We can’t guarantee this of course, but using their nifty travel agent computer, they can see what all of your options are and find you the best value.
Go ahead and head on over to Good Housekeeping to find out how you can avoid outrageous fees. When you’re ready to book a flight, call Global Discovery Vacations. No additional outrageous convenience fees will apply (as long as you account is current, of course).
