In my post that included the word "ramblings" in the title. I mentioned having to replace my 2007 Saturn Ion3 ahead of schedule due to husband related mechanical issues. As I did last time, I bought from a company that our company has a relationship with because they take good care of us. So, I'm in there and the sales guy says Oh you still get your free trip with this purchase. The choices were a Carnival cruise no airfare sorry if you're a regular Carnival cruiser. I have a ship phobia. And Vegas. We picked Vegas. I promised details and eventually a trip report. We picked up the truck yesterday and I got my trip certificate. So...here goes. The company is called Odenza. From their website it looks like they do wholesale marketing group type travel packages. They look like the major player in their segment. You register with your certificate number. It asks you to provide a Visa or Mastercard so they can immediately process a $340 (rounded up) charge as your refundable deposit and for the taxes and any additional charges to come out of. I'm all in on this deal. We are for sure using it. So, I went ahead with that payment. It said I would get an email and I had to pick my destination. I called them instead of emailing to let them know I'm all about the Vegas. She said a travel adviser would be getting in touch with me in the next 5 business days. I asked her if it was true that I could make modifications to the trip, including adding extra nights at my own expense. She said yes. So...I'll let keep you all updated as things develop.
