Default Online Vacation Center ?

Has anyone ever used Online Vaction Center to book a cruise ? They offer good prices. Have never booked on line and usually use a TA to book our cruises.
thanks,
Bob

Bob, endorsing any company on the forums is against the rules I think. I don't know anything about Online Vacation Center. I can tell you there are lots of Online companies that are fine, but be careful. Even if you end up with a live agent the service isn't always as good as dealing with a local or full service TA. Saving a few dollars may or may not be worth it, especailly if problems arise for any reason. Often there are hidden costs as well, like booking fees, cancellation fees etc.

I am not saying "don't do it" I am saying be careful.

Thanks Nita. I've always been more comfortable dealing with our TA. She handles everything for us and we never have any problems.

That's not quite accurate. If a question is asked about a specific agency, and someone has an opinion specific to the question, the comments are welcome.

What's not allowed is a response directing the person posting the question to an agency they did not ask about.

I've never used OVC personally, so have no direct information. One thing to watch out for is to note the *Final" price. I believe some of the promotional pricing is before prt chges and taxes (non commissionable fees)... but they do show up in the total.

Kuki, thanks for setting this straight, I wasn't sure, that is why I said "I think" Now I know.
