Why book through Wood Travel and not direct?
For starters, our travel agents are Expert Travelers, well-trained and well-traveled. They’re experts in the booking process – from initial planning of when and where to go, to which travel provider or airline to go with, based on what suits you and your lifestyle.
They know internet deals and their pitfalls, and that there’s nothing worse than finding that special ‘deal’ online that isn’t that special after all.
They are enthused by travel. They not only have first-hand experience and reviews of destinations, hotels and airlines, but also the feedback of their colleagues and clients. They are trusted travel professionals in the truest sense of the word, and when they’re not booking travel, they are usually off exploring the world themselves.
We’re in the Know
Did you know that switching your travel dates by a single day can sometimes save you hundreds of dollars? Our Expert Travelers do. Seasonality, booking classes and seat sales can all impact a fare, so we steer you in the right direction to save. Do you think you've found the best deal out there? Chances are we have a better one that the public does not have access to. With the inside scoop on industry deals, promotions and specials, we always make sure you are getting the very best bang for your buck.
We Do the Work For You
Life is hectic enough. With all the changes in a reservation while traveling at the moment, do you really want to deal with two or three changes (and during this pandemic I have dealt with upwards of 5 changes on one itinerary!)? Who has time to search for the best deals, reviews, make flight, hotel, tour bookings, train reservations and organize travel insurance, too? We do.
By letting our Expert Travelers do the dirty work, you can spend more time getting excited for your trip and less time stressing about it. We’ll keep you in in the loop during the entire process to ensure that the options we provide you with meet all of your needs. And don’t forget – our expert advice is always free!
We’ve Got Your Back
We work for you, not the travel companies.
Have you ever made a mistake on a booking, or had a change in plans, and spent hours on the phone trying to fix it? Travel Agents have direct lines and get better results quicker.
Our Expert Travelers don’t sell you anything you don’t need. They are here to assist you in booking your dream holiday and will go to great lengths to ensure your trip is as memorable as can be. Nothing is more satisfying than having a happy client who has nothing but great things to say about their trip and their agent.
No one likes to think about something going wrong on their trip, but the reality is: stuff happens.
Our Expert Travelers know everything there is to know about travel insurance, and will explain and recommend the travel insurance plan best suited to you and your trip.
At What Cost?
What most don't know is that Travel Agents work primarily off commissions - Commissions that are built in to those packages you are already buying! If you aren't utilizing a travel agent when you buy online, you are still paying for one. If you are booking during this pandemic while there are travel restrictions in place, we have had to add fees for changes/cancellations as these are very timely in nature and require immediate attention.
WHAT HAS CHANGED WITH BOOKING WITH WOOD TRAVEL SINCE THE PANDEMIC?
Wood Travel now requires all clients to complete a disclaimer form when booking any land, air, or combination package for travel. This disclaimer is required for all new bookings as there is still a government issued Travel Advisory in place. We have also put in place a mandatory deposit for all bookings, which will be reimbursed to you once you book travel with our agency and complete your trip. There are also new change fees to be aware of, and this is due to all the changes in travel that you can expect after your trip has been booked. Should you change any portion of your itinerary those change fees will come into effect before cancellation or changes can be made. If you have any questions please contact Wood Travel and we can explain our booking terms and conditions. Airlines are constantly changing flights trying to get as many as they can onto those flights, and you need to be aware that these changes take time.
While Wood Travel is booking international travel, we are highly recommending travel be limited to domestic travel within Canada. For those who still wish to travel abroad, Wood Travel can assist you while keeping you informed as to situations in your destination as they are during the booking process. Please take the following into consideration if planning out of country travel:
Understands you may have difficulty obtaining essential products or services, face strict movement restrictions and quarantines while in or traveling to or from the destination, and that consular services may be limited.
Understand that you may be subjected to health screening, health questionnaires, COVID-19 testing, or even quarantines during your travels. The quarantining if required, would be at a locally approved facility at your expense, with no refunds issued for the cost of the trip.
Understand that your insurance may not cover travel or medical expenses.
Understand that commercial airspace closures and movement restrictions can occur without warning and could prevent your return to Canada.
Understand that you will self-isolate for 14 days when you return to Canada. This is mandatory as per the Quarantine Act. This includes going directly to a place of quarantine without stopping anywhere, being in a place where they will have no contact with vulnerable people such as 65 years or older or people with underlying medical conditions, they cannot have visitors or leave the quarantine area and must keep a distance of at least 2 metres from others.
Understand that if you develop COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of your return, that you self-isolate from all others, immediately call a health care professional and extend quarantine to 14 days following the appearance of symptoms.
Understand that if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, you may not enter Canada by air, to protect the health of all travelers.
Understand that the travel supplier reserves the right to make flight changes that may affect your itinerary. Neither the travel provider or Wood Travel 2017 are responsible for any changes that may affect the passenger(s). Should you wish to continue with the booking the travel provider issued at the time of change, there will be no service charge to do so. Should you wish to cancel the itinerary given to you at that time, and final payment has not been made, there will be a one time fee of $100 for changes to a new resort/or new date chosen by yourself. since that cancellation and rebooking procedures take some time to complete. There is more information in the fee schedule on the footnote of this website.
There are serious implications to travelling at the moment both for health issues that can arise as well as travel plans being rearranged without your consent. Should you develop COVID-19 while out of country, insurance companies may not cover your stay since we have a mandatory travel restriction in place in Canada. Health costs abroad can ruin one financially. Also, schedule changes with air providers can occur at any time, which can affect your destination resort reservation based on availability.
