Below is a list of FAQs we have received here at Centsible Travel & Vacations. Feel free to contact us if your question is not answered as outlined below.
Why Should I Use a Travel Agent?
Given the ease of the internet, why use a travel agent to book your travel plans? While internet bookings are indeed quickly accessible, they don’t always give you the best rate, and they will ALWAYS leave you without representation. Having a travel agent insures that you have a “travel advocate” who will:
- Juggle the multi-tasking required to pull together the many necessary pieces for a successful trip- Handle all of the unexpected events that can impede the satisfaction of your travel experience
- Provide for you the most current deals and promotions
- Provide first-hand experience to the particulars of your desired destination
In summary, your travel agent saves you time, energy, money!
When should I book my vacation?
As soon as you are sure which dates you wish to travel, we would advise you to make your reservation. During traditionally busy periods (Christmas, Carnival, Easter, Summer), we would book as early as possible. To obtain the lowest airfare must be book within 14 days or more in advance. Some destinations as the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and south American no advance purchase is required.
Do I have to pay in full right away?
This depends. Some ‘special offers‘ require payment to be made at the time of booking. Some other fares could be paid a few days after the reservation is done. Travel Tip – Pay early! We issue the ticket early and you avoid possible fare increase. If you’re wanting to make monthly payments you should plan at minimum 6 months in advance.
What types of documents are required to travel?
For a domestic flight at check in a government ID is required. For international flights passport is needed, and a visa. So, please be advised to check if you need a visa for your destination. Our agents are not responsible for information regarding visa or passport requirements.

What is travel insurance and why should I get it?
As the famous author Robert Burns once wrote, “The best-laid-plans of mice and men often go awry.” Life does not always respect our schedules, and travel insurance is the best way to prepare for any possible hiccup to your vacation. Travel insurance covers any changes or cancellations to your trip, as well as unexpected emergencies while on your vacation. Though we hope you won’t need to use it, we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance to accompany your travel plans.
Can you find me discounted airfare?
Though having a travel agent manage your vacation has many perks, discounted airfare is not one of them. However, we are able to suggest and secure many vacation packaged deals that include both land and air at a combined and reduced rate.
