Cruise Prices lower then Cruise Line Pricing!

For those who wonder who I am or what I do, the following information may be of some value to you.   Prior to retiring to The Villages(R) community in Florida, my wife Carol and I, in 1993, opened and developed a travel agency in upstate New York. Our inspiration was; my retirement from a large corporation, our living abroad and a developed appetite for traveling around the world.  

After 10 years and in 2003, we left our brick and mortar travel agency and retired to Florida, lots of golf, travel and new friends.  In 2005 I read an article, in one of the travel trade magazines, about several individuals living in The Villages(R) community, who were suing a travel agency.  Apparently the travel agency was selling future travel packages, which had cost several thousands of dollars, along with promises of reduced or free travel.  The villagers found out that in fact, the promises made by the travel agency were not going to come to reality. The villagers sued.  

There are many great and dependable people working in the travel industry and there are also some who are not so good.  The idea that individuals, who were looking for the best cruise and travel prices, were taken advantage of, made me decide to do what I do here. Provide an opportunity.  Travel is like any other business or skill factor. After doing it for many years, one has knowledge and know how that others don’t have. If I could give individuals, who want to cruise, reduced pricing on cruises without sacrificing any of my travel, golf, and fun time, it would keep me, business active, and provide individuals with a source for reduced cruise prices, should they wished to take advantage of them.   Since as a stock holder in a travel agency, Travel Consultants International, Inc. /dba/ Travel Depot, I was in a position to take advantage of reducing travel prices for my clients. We treat you, the passenger, as though you were your own travel agent.  

Since you do your own investigation and research, (sweat equity), we return to you, an amount, in the form of an on board credit or where the cruise line will allow, a reduction in price on your booking. Once the booking is made, we provide all the usual customer assistance any other travel agency would provide, plus personal service (since 1993).  The travel agency receives some advantages in increasing their overall volume and in helping cover some of the fixed costs.  I get to keep (within reason) busy, I’m stimulating the gray cells, and I’m involved in an event that provides individuals who are looking for reduced pricing, an opportunity to do just that, reduced pricing on cruise and tour bookings made through me and Travel Depot.   It makes me feel involved and the participants have an opportunity to reduce their cost when traveling, all without any sleight of hand.

There are no additional cost or hidden fees involved when  booking travel with me and through Travel Depot. Once the booking is made, I provide all the usual customer services any other travel agency would provide.  Serving the cruise community for over 24 years with thousands of satisfied bookings.

Glad I found Terry after I retired as a travel agent doing my own bookings. The website is easy to use and Terry is there if needed. He tends to our special needs and provides real savings over & above those offered by the cruise lines.

Amazing Vacation

Reviewed By JZOBX - Moyock, NC | Traveled to Europe
Terry is hands down and without question the best travel agent in the world. We have booked more than 15 cruises with Terry over the past 10 plus years. I simply make one call and Terry takes care of everything and i do mean everything. He is so easy to work with it almost feels like he is family. if we have a problem he takes care of it. If the price goes down he gives us the better deal. He always gets us the cabin we are looking for or a better one. We have booked as many as 16 cabins and he handled it with ease. i used to shop his best price guarantee and finally stopped because he was always the cheapest. We will not even consider a cruise vacation unless Terry takes care of all the arrangements.
