Vacation Inspirations Charleston: Across the Northern Border

Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, is home to more than a million people, so imagine the odds against one Canadian couple with travel plans between Hilton Head and Myrtle Beach in South Carolina finding a little-known spot in downtown Charleston known as Vacation Inspirations.

“We decided at the last minute to stop in Charleston, and now we can’t wait to go back,” said Patrick Dowsett. “It was while we were walking downtown in November of 2010 that we came across Vacation Inspirations, and we bought our membership. It was a very good decision.”

While Dowsett and his wife, Diana Dixon, a retired aerospace engineer with the Department of National Defence in Canada, had a taste of good food and good spirits on East Bay Street, they also found the key to their vacation bliss.

“Our first booking with Vacation Inspirations was a two-week vacation on the island of Fiji,” said Dowsett. “We stayed at two different top-notch resorts, the Tokoriki Island Resort – from our window we could see the island where the Tom Hanks movie “Castaway” was filmed – and the Outrigger Resort, which was a selection of Missie Blair of Vacation Inspirations. She had actually visited the resort and was able to recommend it personally. We were very surprised at the overall cost, and the amount of our rebate was even more thrilling.” Continue Reading »

Management also explains that Vacation Inspirations is able to offer deep discounts on quality vacations at locations throughout the world because the company uses the same concept utilized by wholesale clubs such as Sam’s and Costco.

You simply submit this information on your vacation voucher, and we will find you the nearest match for your request from our inventory of top destinations.”

In other words, Vacation Inspirations will make it easy for you to plan memorable vacations and save money, as well.

Vacation Inspirations, Charleston Travel Agency, Testimonial, Fortunato Family (Part I)

Growing up with a father and an uncle who served during World War II, William Fortunato always had a respect for the men who served during the Greatest Generation. “My uncle, in particular,” recounted Fortunato, “served at Normandy Beach so it was always a place I felt the need to visit. He suffered after the war with gruesome nightmares about a friend he was unable to save.”

 

Now, at a different phase in his life, Fortunato has his own family that includes a wife who always wanted to go to Paris in the springtime and travel the Rhine River. So the best option as long time members of Vacation Inspirations? Travel to Paris for a couple of days for their wedding anniversary and then board a Viking River Cruise from Paris to Normandy.

Vacation Inspirations: Richard & Patricia Bossard: East Coast to West Coast cruise

Richard Bossard, a long term member of the United States Armed Forces and now a civilian federal government employee for the last twenty years, has travelled extensively so finding new vacation locations can be somewhat of a challenge.

“I’ve done a lot of traveling overseas and in the states so we always look for new places to see,” explained Bossard. “We joined The Vacation Inspirations two years ago and decided to take an extensive cruise.”

For fourteen days, Richard and wife Patricia of Vonore, Tennessee cruised from the east coast to the west coast of the United States. “We left out of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and our last port was San Diego, California. The best part about it was when we spent an entire day traveling through the Panama Canal. We wore ourselves out running from one side of the ship to the next as we listened to a knowledgeable gentleman on the loud speaker explaining details and history of the canal,” said Richard. “It was definitely the highlight.”

The Munoz Family – Vacation Inspirations – the Bahamas – Charleston, SC

As members of Vacation Inspiration for four years, the Munoz Family of Goose Creek, South Carolina prefers to vacation by cruise lines. “We mostly take cruises to different locations,” said Russell Munoz. “Up until recently the cruises were always out of Florida but this last time we took a five day cruise to the Bahamas that left out of Charleston, South Carolina.”

The Commonwealth of the Bahamas, a nation of nearly 700 subtropical islands and more than 2,000 islets extend about 760 miles from the southeast coast of Florida, and has been an extremely popular destination for decades.

Having a short drive down the interstate from home to their departure port definitely makes cruising much easier. “It’s easy to book the vacations too with Vacation Inspirations,” continued Russell. “Whenever I do something with the travel agency they always have a quick response and excellent overall customer service. All of our excursions are booked through them and they help to make our vacations more memorable.”

Vacation Inspirations Helps You Discover Your Florida Side

Value

For the most part, if you want to take a memorable vacation and get the most for your hard-earned cash, you have two options: You can sacrifice price in the name of convenience by seeking the services of a traditional travel agent, or you can spend countless hours staring at your computer screen all hours of the day and night, anxiously waiting for airlines and cruise companies to temporarily drop their prices.

If you choose to hire a travel agent, you run the risk of paying more than you really should for an exhilarating cruise out of a Florida port or a relaxing week along the beautiful white sand beaches of Florida’s panhandle. However, if you decide to fly solo, you might not even notice as you sail right past some of the best deals available in the sometimes confusing world of travel. Even experienced surfers must eventually face the responsibilities of their day job and occasionally seek the solace of sleep.

There is an alternative, however, that not only eliminates wasteful spending but also does away with the need to visit multiple web sites, desperately searching for that perfect deal-the one that fits your schedule, fulfills your dreams and falls within the guidelines of your own budget.

Vacation Inspirations is now open in Tampa, Florida and offering discounts and services to Florida residents. The company bridges the gap between financial considerations and customer service by customizing any type of vacation, anywhere in the world at the lowest price possible. Then, Vacation Inspirations will sweeten the pot by rebating a portion of that cost back to you.
