I am interested to find out how that affects my TA's commission on the Early Saver Rate? I don't doubt what you say is true, but I would appreciate more info to that affect.
Since Carnival is not refunding the difference in fare, but actually offering OBC for the difference, they still penalize the TA? That stinks! I guess if I were a TA, then I would have a major problem with that, especially since the TA has the added burden of chasing Carnival for the credit they owe their client. If I were the TA I might have to re-think offering discounted pricing on Early Saver Bookings if it were unprofitable.
Any TA's care to chime in on this?
