Frequently Asked Questions

 Why would I use a Travel Agent when I can do it myself online?

Do-it-yourself travel websites may appear easier and less expensive, but think again!
Without personal customer service, people who book trips online often end up frustrated, confused, and dissatisfied.

This is where Oddball Escapes can step in to help! Travel Agents are the driving force behind connecting clients with the best vacation experiences possible. We learn what you are looking for, and we know which options DO – as well as which options do not – meet your expectations.

 I want to be helped, not sold to.

Oddball works for you, NOT the supplier. We devote time and effort to making sure people are happy and satisfied with their travel options. Plus, if clients need any assistance, Oddball is just a phone call or email away, so travelers receive immediate attention when they need it.

 Will I be charged a fee to work with Oddball?

If we help you select a vacation package with a top name supplier in the travel industry, no, Oddball will not charge you for its service. Vacations such as cruises, escorted tours, hotel stays, and all-inclusive resorts treat travel agents like a branch of their sales team. The supplier pays us for providing personalized service to you. At no extra charge to you!

However, people like to customize their vacations above and beyond the standard options. For example, our head Oddball, Cassie, has extensive knowledge about destinations across the United States, and enjoys helping travelers plan unique roadtrip-style vacations. For additional services such as these, yes, Oddball will charge a service fee.

Some forms of travel, such as air arrangements and charter buses may also incur a service fee. This is because airlines and regional companies do not pay agents directly. However, if included as part of a vacation package, Oddball may choose to waive fees for such arrangements.

Service fees for additional planning and coordination will vary depending upon the request.
Fees will be discussed, never hidden.

 I feel so overwhelmed! Can you help?

With industry experience, Oddball has the knowledge and experience to help clients decide which destination or resort is best for them. Travel Agents have all the information – from the best attractions to see, the most exciting activities to do, and the most affordable way to get there… we’ve got it covered!

 Do you offer vacations within my budget?

Travel Agents understand that people may feel limited by their vacation budget. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping you receive the greatest possible value. Best of all, Oddball Escapes shares all of our professional guidance at no extra cost!

 What if something goes wrong while away on vacation?

In the rare case that something on a trip doesn’t go as planned, you can contact us and Oddball will help you resolve the problem. Travel Agents always work for the client – not the travel supplier, so our main concern is always your unique needs.

 I don't have time to plan a detailed vacation.

Travel Agents know exactly where to go to get the information that they need and can find travel options within seconds. Planning a vacation with an agent saves both time and money because with some effort and organization, Oddball handles all travel arrangements.
