Q: Are your services free?
A: Yes, Vacation with the Magic does not charge you a fee for our services, providing your vacation package is booked with our company. Unless your booking services beyond our vendor’s packages such as a “Pet Passport” to take your service dog along with you out of the United States, there are no additional fees. We do get this question a lot, mainly because our clients have been so completely satisfied that they can’t believe it is free, but believe it; our services are 100% free to you!
Q: Do you offer travel discounts?
A: While we do our best to get you the lowest possible price on the Vacation of your dreams, we are not a discount travel site. Whether you book through us, through another agency, or direct through our venders, your price is likely to be the same (Apples to Apples). However, we will often suggest (too flexible travelers) alternate travel dates help you save money. Additionally, we work with each of our clients to create the best Vacation for you based on your budget. We will price-match (where available) should you find a later promotion on your booked Vacation. A discount travel agency does not offer these services. This service is provided FREE by Vacation with the Magic. Should a discount promotion become available with Disney, or any of our other vendors, we endeavor to secure the lower pricing on your behalf, AUTOMATICALLY!
Q: I have already booked my Vacation. Is it too late to use your agency?
A: This depends on the vacation supplier, although most booked vacations are transferable providing if booked within 30 days, and only a deposit is paid; it does depend on the vendor’s policy. For details regarding the transfer of a package, please contact our Magic Planner and we will be happy to help you with a qualified vacation transfer.
Q: What if I need to cancel my Vacation?
A: While we completely understand what a disappointment it is to cancel a dream vacation (or any travel plans), we sympathize when “Life Happens.” We can assist you with canceling your vacation plans; however, our vendors may have different policies regarding fees for cancellations. All of the information regarding cancellation fees are presented to you before booking your vacation package just in case such an occasion were to arise.
