Frequently Asked Questions:
- How does it work when I book my holiday with you? --> It's kind of the same as when you book online yourself or when you go to a physical travel agency. The only difference is, that I don't have opening hours, I will save you time or even money, I only work with reliable travel partners and I do what computers and websites cannot do, I care. I am not like many other travel agencies, restricted to one supplier, so we will have the world to choose from.
- Is your service more expensive then when I book myself online? --> Not at all, I work on a commission basis, my service is free in case of a booking.. So you will get my service and personal attention for free, you don't pay anything extra. So secure, sharp and transparant prices. Because I have a respected network, I can often arrange even better prices or availability than shown online.
- I like searching for a holiday myself so much, why should I book with you then? --> Not a problem, I have many clients who search for a holiday themselves. Sometimes I just point them in a particular direction.

In me you will have a fixed point of contact, before and during your holiday, in case of emergency or just for nice recommendations.
