I would see if they have any complaints against them with the BBB. Then continue to see if others have used this company. Maybe put it in a post with their name in it.
I'd be skeptical if a price is soooooooo low. But you never know! I wouldn't book with them until you really research them.

Good luck!

What company is the quote from? Cruisecompete is not the agency offering the quote. Cruisecompete is kind of like a referral type service. You give them your criteria and then various agencies vie for your business. Your quote would be from an agency/company that is independent from Cruisecompete? Also make sure the price quote includes port fees and taxes. Most times quotes include port but not always taxes but then again, I've seen online agencies that don't include either in their quotes.

If you are nervous about the TA, click the part that says Why you can trust this agent. It will give you links to the BBB. Book w/ a credit card that has a buyer's protection plan.

If you still can't bring your self to trust a internet company, just pay the higher rate for a company you can trust. It may be worth the peace of mind.

Remember though, that cruisecompete works on the honor system. They ask you to promise to book from who ever gives you the lowest rate through them if you are going to book.

Hi. I have used agencies twice from cruisecompete.com and have always gotten such a good bargin that I was wondering the same as you.
I used the cruise professionals for two cruises, saved hundreds of dollars & never had any regrets booking with them.
Hope this helps!

Default Re: I was quoted an VERY low price. Could it be true?

I recieved quotes 2 separate times on Cruisecompete.com and one particular agency gave me a ridiculously low quote twice. When I e-mailed her with interest in the cruise, she said...Sorry, it was a misquote! That made me skeptical about using that method.
