I usually book through a TA as we get an onboard credit for doing so. I book early saver and he submits the forms for me, but as the price goes down, so does our OBC. I really wonder though when Aug 1 rolls around and TA's aren't able to give OBC if we will continue to book with him.
I am inclined to think we will as he gives us great service, but the agency is not open on Sunday. He also has insurance that is better as far as we are concerned than what Carnival offers and it is less expensive than what is offered on insuremytrip.com.
It's going to be interesting to see what will really happen with the changes.
