Know what you're getting into!
Please read the following information regarding fraudulent travel companies selling Orlando ticket media.
Every dollar you spend on your Orlando vacation (or any vacation for that matter) should be protected. Making sure that you are using a reputable and legitimate service to purchase your package through is the best place to start.
Though there may be companies out there that sell tickets and packages at the same price we do, there are also those companies out there that advertise prices almost too good to be true. That's because they are too good to be true and buyer beware!
When purchasing your travel through Cruise and Tour Experts you have the security of knowing that we are licensed, bonded and authorized to sell all travel components that we advertise. How do you know this? Simple! You can check for yourself! Travel companies (of any kind) that sell from a location in Florida to anyone in Florida or across the country are required by law to be licensed, hold a surety bond and register with the state of Florida as a seller of travel. Our license is #ST39486. You can check the states website by clicking the link below to verify:
The Internet is full of unlicensed companies selling travel illegally and with very little effort, you can spot them quickly. Here is what to look for:
Are they selling tickets far below market value?
Do they list a Seller of Travel license number that is easily found on their website?
If so, check it out! Use the link above. Many companies may have held a license at one point that is no longer valid many more do not have one at all.
Do they sell travel insurance?
If they are not able to sell travel insurance, they may not be selling tickets legally either. Cruise and Tour Experts proudly sells Travel Guard trip insurance.
Are they affiliated with and display accreditation with a nationally recognized travel industry association?
Cruise and Tour Experts is accredited with the International Airlines Travel Agent Network.
So what happens when you use one of these companies?
Your protection is limited to almost nonexistent when purchasing tickets through a non-licensed travel company. If you give them money and they leave in the middle of the night or change their business name to avoid detection, you will be out everything you have paid. Laws are in place for a reason!
Fly-by-night and unethical travel companies place their clients at risk. We ask that if not using our services, please protect your investment and research who you are buying from.
