It’s free! We do not charge a fee for our vacation planning services. We are paid by the resorts, cruise lines, airlines, etc. after you travel.
Let us do the planning, so you can do the relaxing. We are here for you before, during, and after travel to provide personalized customer service. We have spent hours training and researching to prepare us to be able to plan your dream vacation or group travel destination. We will use our knowledge and expertise to find the best location, transportation, and activities for your trip. All you need to do is pack!
No, we have access to the same pricing as online travel booking engines. In fact, we are often able to book vendor specials that are only available to travel agents. When you book through an online travel website, you are technically still using a travel agent. One that requires you to call a 1-800 number and sit on hold when you have a question or problem, and you never get the same person twice. Why risk your vacation experience when you can have quick, easy, personalized service by booking with us?
Budget is important, and we will work with you to make sure you have a relaxing vacation without having to stress about the bill. Be honest with us about how much you want to spend upfront, so we can match you from the beginning with travel destinations that you will be comfortable with. There is never any pressure to go above and beyond.
No, in many cases we can offer a payment plan through our suppliers. Deposit rates vary based on the type of travel and when you are traveling. We will always work with you to find a solution that works best for you. Also, note that all payments made through Vacations by Dori are charged directly by the suppliers. You will know exactly where your money went and will see the supplier’s name on your credit card statement.
We know that planning a wedding can be a stressful, expensive, and time-consuming task, and we are here to help! Whether you are looking for a destination wedding in the Caribbean or an all-inclusive resort to relax at after the wedding, we will work with you to make sure you have the wedding and honeymoon of your dreams. We can also reserve hotel room blocks for wedding guests traveling from out of town.
Yes! Do you have a travel sports team, business incentive retreat, or group conference you need to plan? We can work with suppliers to plan transportation, accommodations, and activities for your group. We also have the ability to set up a custom page on our website that participants can access to reserve and pay for their reservations individually if desired.
Travel insurance is recommended to protect your travel investment. Not only does it often allow for trip cancellation coverage if you are unable to travel, but it can also offer important benefits during travel. Lost baggage, trip delays, and emergency medical assistance are just some of the benefits available with travel insurance. Vacations by Dori is not an insurance agency, but we are able to set you up with a carrier based on your travel needs.
