Can you believe it? This month Travel On A Dream will be celebrating our five-year anniversary. My way to celebrate will be visiting five new countries in Europe. Later this month, we will be in Denmark for a few nights before embarking on an 11-night Disney Magic cruise with three stops in Norway, two stops in Iceland (including an overnight and visit to the Arctic Circle!), one stop in Scotland, followed by a couple days in London, England.
Over the past five years, we have been honored to help so many of you plan your vacations, big and small, from cruises and Disney vacations to all-inclusives and individualized packaged plans. We pride ourselves on offering the best customer service and are there for you through the entire process from planning and preparation right through your return and any issues you may need to resolve. We have shared so many stories with you and consider you all friends.
Even after five years, what always surprises us the most are the clients who don’t realize everything that we are able to do to help you. If we booked your Walt Disney World® vacation, some of our clients believe that is all we do. We consider ourselves a full-service agency. Nothing is too big or too small to handle. We are able to take care of everything you need to make your vacation complete – airfare, transfers, car rentals, cruises, hotels, packages, all-inclusives, tours, excursions. Many times, our services will not cost you anything additional. If there will be a service fee, we disclose that as soon as possible. We don’t simply work 9 to 5 and we don’t base our recommendations on your vacation on what we will make in commission. We base it on what is best for you and your family.
A big part of the reason that we have been so successful is because of you. You continue to return to us year after year (and in some cases, month after month!). Additionally, you tell your friends and family about the amazing trip that was planned for and with you. Your referrals have helped our business grow at the level that it has and we appreciate that. This is why we have continued to offer referral credits. We know that it is more likely that someone will book with a new travel agent if they have been referred by their friends and family. This is the biggest compliment that you can give us and we cherish that.
While I would love to take you all with me on my celebration of our 5th birthday, it’s not possible. Instead, we have a promotion and a giveaway for you.
We have mentioned before that a small percentage of the United States have taken a cruise vacation in the past. However, most people who do take a cruise vacation enjoy it and plan to return again. We would like to encourage the new cruisers to give cruising a try. Our expert agents can help determine which cruise line is best for you.
New cruisers, if you book your first cruise vacation with Travel On A Dream, in addition to our service and onboard credit offer, we will also give you an additional $25 onboard credit. If your cruise vacation is in 2015, we will also include a stateroom gift for you. This applies to all cruise lines except for Carnival, due to business rules.
If you refer a new cruiser who then books and travels with Travel On A Dream, you will receive a $25 gift card at the time your referral cruises in addition to your usual referral credit given at the next time you travel after them. It is important to have your friend mention that you referred them so you get this credit! Both of these promotions run through July 15, 2015.
And now, a giveaway!
Yes, one lucky winner will go home with an iPad mini! We also have a Disneyland Diamond Celebration water bottle, Disneyland reversible tote, Disney Cruise Line duffel bag and an Olaf limited edition tin with ToaD luggage tags and a Quantum of the Seas wristlet inside.
