For the most part, if you want to take a memorable vacation and get the most for your hard-earned cash, you have two options: You can sacrifice price in the name of convenience by seeking the services of a traditional travel agent, or you can spend countless hours searching Google, Yahoo, Bing and the other search engines all hours of the day and night, anxiously looking and hoping for airlines and cruise companies to temporarily drop their prices – and hoping you catch it!
But there’s a better way that marries safety and savings of your time and money – one that fits your schedule, fulfills your dreams and falls within the guidelines of your own budget. Cruises, Travel and Attractions (CTA), as seen on The Travel Channel, is now open in Tampa, Florida and offering discounts and services to Florida residents. CTA bridges the gap between financial considerations and customer service by customizing any type of vacation, anywhere in the world at the lowest price possible-then sweetening the pot by rebating a portion of the cost of the vacation back to you.
CTA Makes Your Life Simple, Makes Vacation Relaxing
“We can design any type of vacation, and, regardless of how much time it takes, we’ll put together the vacation that’s right for you. We really like helping people get what they want,” said CTA Sales Manager Mark Young. “In addition to our high level of customer service, the low prices and rebate can save you thousands of dollars over the course of your lifetime.”
Cruises, Travel and Attractions does business with most of the world’s top cruise lines, offering vacation possibilities that will take you places spanning virtually the entire globe: Alaska, New England, Italy, Africa, India, the Black Sea, the Red Sea, the North Sea, Hawaii, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, South America and even Antarctica, and every place in between.
“We can get you on any cruise line, in any type of cabin and in any price range,” Young said. “With most travel agents, you’ll have to pay for their markups and commissions. And if you try to do it yourself on the internet, you might be rerouted to India or someplace like that. We provide top-of-the-line customer service, and it doesn’t cost you a penny.”
CTA’s Discount Vacations and Buying Power
Young explains that Cruises, Travel and Attractions is able to offer deep discounts on quality vacations at locations throughout the world because the company uses the same concept utilized by wholesale clubs such as Sam’s and Costco. Since it provides services to thousands of members and many of them vacation often, Cruises, Travel and Attractions is able to purchase large blocks of space at most of the world’s top resort destinations. The company prides itself on its success in negotiating the best possible price for the clients.
Young points out that even when the national economy is sluggish, Caribbean cruises and vacations at beaches all along the East Coast remain popular among the company’s clients, due in no small part to CTA’s smart buying power. In other words, Cruises, Travel and Attractions will make it easy for you to plan memorable vacations and save money, as well.
“We have created our resort search system to allow you to choose the areas you would like to visit, as well as the number of bedrooms and the time of year, be it prime or low-demand season,” he said. “You simply submit this information on your vacation voucher, and we will find you the nearest match for your request from our inventory of top destinations.”
Vacations, Cruises and Tours, Oh My!
Vacation condos in most of the world’s top resort locations are also available to CTA members. Destinations range from Tampa and Savannah to Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the mountains of the Western United States, Central America, Hawaii and Europe, and their average cost is only around $599 per week, according to Cruises, Travel and Attraction’s Mark Young.
Tours are also popular among CTA members. Possibilities include the Branson Music Holiday; Mackinac Island, featuring the Grand Hotel; Antarctica; Italian lakes and Greek Islands, featuring a seven-night Eastern Mediterranean Cruise; the Canadian Rockies by rail; the Wonders of Iceland; and Europe’s Christmas markets, featuring Austria, Germany, France and Switzerland.
‘Hot Weeks’ feature vacations at destinations throughout the United States and abroad. For those who love the beach, options include Brigantine, NJ; Kaunakakai, Molokai, Hawaii; Cancun, Mexico; Ventnor, NJ; Fort Walton Beach, FL; Hilton Head Island, SC; and Myrtle Beach, SC. The mountains are also popular, at Teton Creek Resort, Idaho; Heber City, Utah; and Granby, Colorado; while other ‘hot’ locations frequented by CTA members include Las Vegas, Stowe, VT; Reno, Nevada; and Puerto Rico in the Dominican Republic.
