6) Continuously monitor cruise fares for price drops
Once you book a cruise with Sophisticated Travel, we continuously monitor the cruise fare for a price drop. We’ve been able to save our clients hundreds of dollars as an on-board credit, in additional amenities, or a reduction in the cruise fare. Costco, Expedia and the cruise lines don’t do this for you.
7) Excursion & sight-seeing selection assistance
We will offer excursions and sight-seeing recommendations based on what we’ve learned through our consultation process. We offer VIP customized excursions and experiences for those seeking the most luxurious, private and/or highly tailored experiences.
We can make or assist you with flight arrangements including those using frequent flyer miles. Whether we book it for you or you book it yourself, we’ll include it in your “Trip Plans” smartphone app so you’ll have your entire itinerary and travel documents at your fingertips.
9) Quarterly or monthly payment options
If you wish, we can set up a quarterly or monthly payment schedule before the final payment at zero interest and no extra cost.
10) 12-month financing option
If you’d like to finance your balance at final payment, we offer 12-month financing through our Uplift partner. Finance charges are typically significantly lower than credit card rates depending on your credit score. We can check your APR, payments, and all other terms with a soft credit check. A hard check isn’t added to your credit history unless you elect to proceed with the loan.
11) Manage final payments
We’ll notify you in advance and process your final cruise payments.
12) Printable PDF itineraries for your luggage
We’ll prepare a printable PDF of your itinerary to be placed in each piece of checked luggage. That way, if your bags become separated from you (temporarily lost by the airline), this itinerary will assist the airline in getting your luggage to you and your ship or travel destination.
