Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use a travel agent?

Travel agents save you time and provide valuable knowledge to make your trip as stress-free as possible. They spend hours each week updating their travel training, travel often to learn destinations, plug-in to their travel network for important updates, and are a crucial partner in a successful trip. Most of the time their prices are the same or better than what you can find on your own.

How do travel agents make money?

Travel agents earn commission from hotels and tour operators and may earn additional earnings from service fees. Commission is often pre-built into the normal cost of a trip so in many cases using a travel agent costs the same as booking on your own. Since travel agents are very knowledgable, we may even save money because we know how to package things to best serve you. Adventures by Amaris does not charge service fees at this time.

What is included at an all-inclusive resort?

An all-inclusive resort is a type of vacation resort that includes all meals, drinks, some activities, and sometimes even transportation and gratuities in one price. These resorts are common in Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica. Some resorts may include amenities beyond the norm including scuba diving, water skiing, gratuities, park access with zip-lining and ATVs, and maybe even some excursions. Contact your travel agent for details.

Where should I take my family on vacation?

Family vacation recommendations vary depending on the needs of the family. Popular choices include Disney World; Universal Studios; All-Inclusive Resorts in Mexico, Dominican Republic, and Jamaica; and family-friendly cruises such as those offered by Royal Caribbean, Disney Cruise Line, and Princess Cruise Line. Contact your travel agent for customized options.

What destinations are safe?

Determining whether an area is safe or not can be a complex process that requires careful consideration and attention to detail. Fortunately, the U.S. Department of State regularly updates travel warnings. You can search specific countries for warnings. You may be surprised on actual warnings versus what the news and media portrays. No destination including your hometown is 100% safe. No matter where you are, exercise precautions.

What is included on a cruise?

Cruising is a popular way of traveling, and it offers a wide range of amenities and activities for travelers. The exact inclusions of a cruise vary depending on the cruise line, type of ship, and itinerary, but there are some general features that are typically included on most cruises. Accommodations, meals, basic drinks, and onboard activities are often included in your cruise fare. More may be included depending on your cruise fare as well.
