I get asked this question a lot and its a very good question. By law if you booked with a licensed travel agency, that supplier, hotel or car rental company has to pay us a commission of the sale. This does not affect your price in anyway. You will be paying the same amount no matter what. If you decide to book direct and not use a travel agent, the hotel, supplier or car rental company keeps that commission as its built into your price. So why not use a knowledgeable travel agent, someone who is working on your behalf. If you should have any issue, you have 1 person to call. You have a dedicated person who's #1 concern is your experience and satisfaction. Island Travel Company is going to be there for you before, during and after your trip. I am personally not trying to move inventory (like many of your online booking tools featuring "steals and deals") I am trying to create a trusted relationship so that you will want to book with Island Travel again.
