Some cruise lines and resorts offer group rates with as few as 10 travelers. That means your work team, organization, club or association…or even your circle of friends and family…can save money by traveling as a group.
Group travel is more than just airline seats and fares. It also involves guarantees, retention rates, deposit and payment deadlines…lots of fine print. We at More Than Meetings, Inc. understand how all of these contracts and terms can affect your group and can save (or cost) you money.
Just give us a call, email or complete our “Contact Us” form on line. We can email or fax a group quotation to you that clearly shows all charges, taxes, fuel surcharges, add-ons and fees. Don’t be duped by “base fare” quotes. Don’t be misled by base fare ads and quotes. We will show you the bottom line.
Serious meetings…serious vacations! Any time people gather together for a purpose, whether its business or pleasure, someone is needed to oversee all of the details to ensure the event happens and that it is a success.
