ICELAND PACKAGE! I just got back from the Land of Fire and Ice. It’s GLORIOUS, especially with Icelandair’s nonstop flight…just SEVEN HOURS total! Our friends at Explore Tours have a special package: Glaciers, Geysers and Ice. The six-day/five-night package includes a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall (pictured) and the Geysir Hot Springs. Also, visit the oh-so active Eyjafjallajökull Volcano! See glaciers, sea birds and the capital city of Reykjavik. You’ll be worn out by then, so relax in the AWESOME Blue Lagoon hot springs on your way to the airport to catch your flight home!! Call Isabelle or one of the professionals at Explore Tours and plan your getaway to Iceland! (800)523-7405.

    My family and I would love to take cruise from east coast of USA to Italy and spend time in Italy and cruise back but we don’t have the money down to pay for all that…do you all take payments

    Hi Dianna!

    Great question! We would love to help you book an amazing Mediterranean cruise! I recommend planning about a year in advance of when you want to travel, if you’re interested in making payments. Most cruise lines will require a deposit per person, and then designate a date for final payment some time in the future. Between the date you make the deposit, and the final payment date, you can make payments in whatever installments work for your budget. USTravel Consultants also have the ability to monitor the cruise you’ve chosen to ensure you receive the lowest rate, and the best promotional offer, such as shipboard credit, or balcony/suite upgrades. If you’d like more information, please call 1 (800) 544-2217 and ask for one of our Vacation Consultants!

    I am very disappointed. I waited until today to try to book my flight to Denver in November because the RT airfare was supposed to be $356 on Alaska Airlines starting August 15. I contacted US Travel and was told the lowest fare was approx. $590 on United. What happened to the Alaska Airlines fare mentioned in this Travelgram.

    Hi Kathy. Next time…DON’T WAIT. The fares change all the time. Other dates to Denver are available for as little as $357rt. Remember–these low fares are NOT for you. Rather, they are part of a larger “spite-and-malice” rivalry between competing airlines. Once they (the airlines) kiss-n-make up….the low fares disappear.
