Jodi & Richard S.

“I wanted to send a personal thank you. I was scared to death about booking my vacation over the internet, but everything was perfect! In fact, we were the only couple to have a preregistration card for check-in at the hotel thanks to you. You were able to get me a better deal than the local travel agents I tried. Thank you again for the excellent service. Our honeymoon was the best vacation ever and absolutely stress-free thanks to you.”

Marie C.

“I want to thank you so much for all your patience and dedication to my vacation. It will not be forgotten! In my opinion, you are the finest travel agent I have ever worked with. You went above and beyond for my family. Thanks again.”

Lester & Joyce B.

from Oregon, OH.

“Our agent is the very best. She understands your every need and gets you where you want to go. She has made our vacation life the BEST… Keep up the good work!”

Jan M.

from Staten Island, NY.

“Everyone and everything was perfect. We even extended 2 extra days at a really good price. As you are aware the hardest part of dealing with an internet-based agent is trust and you have earned that. Thank you again for all of your help.”

Robin S.

from Philadelphia, PA.

“Thank you very much for the wonderful package and the wonderful rate. I just want to say that our agent was great. She was friendly, helpful and made it easy for me to book my vacation.”

Susan F.

from Floral Park, NY.

“Our agent was very nice and very helpful. We would use the Agency again.”

Maureen E.

from Sicklerville, NJ.

“I am very pleased with all services provided through Go Away Travel – especially the help and patience of our agent.”

Allison L.

from Philadelphia, PA.

“I’d like to thank you for all of your perseverance. You found the right package at a terrific price (THE PRICE CAN’T BE BEAT) I’ll definitely, without a doubt be using your services, and we’ll recommend you highly to my friends and family.”

Scott L.

from Newark, NJ.

“Thank you for your help & excellent service. You made this an easy and painless experience.”

Cynthia C.

from Chicago, IL.

“Everyone in our group of 10 used Apple Vacations, but three of the couples used GoAwayTravel.com, whereas the other two, did not because they were afraid to use the internet for travel arrangements. Needless to say, not only did those that used you save money, but they also received better service at the resort. The ones that used you had a welcome fruit basket and bottle of champagne, robes, and slippers in the room, and turndown service each night. The other two couples did not receive this service and when they complained, they were told our agent must have arranged for these services. You also provided us with comp. tickets for headphones and cocktails on the flight, which the other two couples using another Apple Vacation travel agent did not. Anyway, the other couples now have your business card!”

Diane B.

from Eliria, OH.

“I’m very happy with your service and my agent, and have already recommended her to several friends.”

John K.

from Westchester, PA.

“This is my first time using the Internet as the medium for booking my travel reservations, you did a much better job than my local agent! Not to mention I could handle all reservation details via e-mail from my office during work. I hope your business model continues to succeed in a market full of “live reservation” travel sites the gambled on high technology investments and forgot about customer service. Your dedication to service should set you apart, as the new economy merges with the old economy, word of mouth will once again be the best advertising tool. You have my “advertising” and business, thanks for a great trip.”

Sarah D.

from UK.

“Many many thanks for organizing this for us and please pass on my thanks to my agent (she was brilliant – helpful, friendly, informative, responsive etc). First time I’ve booked a holiday on-line – very positive experience – can’t thank you enough. UK companies could learn a lot from you! ”

Bonnie & Lawrence H.

from Lakemand, FL.

“We are very pleased with the way our travel plans were handled. Will definitely do business with you again. We couldn’t be happier with GoAwayTravel.com. Keep up the good work! ”

Bill H.

from Danville, VA.

“You have really made this getting ready for this trip an easy thing to do. I have enjoyed communicating with you and I will be contacting you for future trips.”

Tricia L.

from Carrollton, TX.

“You were great! I couldn’t ask for a better travel agent. We are definitely going to use you from now on!”

Scott W. C.

from Houston, TX.

“My agent diligently followed up on this issue and actively participated in seeing the problem through to resolution. Faced with the same situation, 99% of other travel professionals would have distanced themselves from the problem and left me swinging in the breeze. My agent didn’t do that. Even though you guys are an internet-based travel service, she performed with virtual “face to face” service. For that, I thank her and your company. That level of service will go a long, long way towards continuing to build your company. Thank you. I look forward to booking our next trip through my agent.”

Heidi C.

from Chicago, IL.

“We had a great vacation! Lovely view and location! GoAwayTravel.com is the best travel agency I’ve encountered!”

Danielle D.

from St. Louis, MO.

“The service I received from my agent at Go Away Travel was great. All of my questions and paranoia were answered and relieved.”

Russ & Debi C.

from Oceanside, NY.

“You and your company have secured a new customer for life. I plan on winning the state lottery and giving you plenty of business. Thanks again for all your help.”

Kathryn N.

from St. Louis, MO.

“Thanks again for all your help in our time of “CRISIS”!!! Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed ourselves!! We will definitely use your agency again for future travel arrangements.”

Katherine G.

from Philadelphia, PA.

“Our agent is very good! She always does well by us.”

Scott G.

from Windsor, CT.

“I would like to make you aware of what a great customer service person our agent is. Trying to book a trip for our honeymoon to the Secrets Excellence Resorts & Spa, I called on four difference travel agents for pricing. Your employee sold us on GoAwayTravel.com after putting together a very nice personalized package, the three other companies did not call back. We feel that our agent will be able to help us with any upcoming plans also.”

Donna S.

from Mullica Hill, NJ.

“Our agent was wonderful!!!!”

Larry M.

from Horsham, PA.

“My wife and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you for helping us arrange a most enjoyable vacation. We felt valued and appreciated. We were spoiled by the experience. We were all saddened to leave. My wife and I are already planning our next trip there and you can rest assured that we will use Apple Vacations again.”

Tara & Ed S.

from Brookline, MA.

“Just wanted to let you know that I’ve been working with our agent to book a trip to Playa del Carmen, and she’s been terrific to work with. She was able to find us a room at the hotel we wanted when no other agents could and has worked with all of our requests for dates, timing, and details. She has been totally responsive and helpful.”

Leanne W.

from Auburn, MA.

“Our agent handled our vacation and she was excellent. We had some unexpected medical problems that led us to have to postpone our trip and she was extremely accommodating and helpful in rebooking the trip. We probably were rather high maintenance customers in this respect and she never wavered in her professionalism and her helpfulness. Her treatment of us during a difficult time alone would make us repeat customers but the fact that everything about our trip went smoothly and we had all the information we needed ahead of time to plan for our vacation and to make every step as easy as possible will make us repeat customers as well. Thank you.”
