"What people say about us"

Leila came up with a vacation package deal in the Florida Keys that was very good. we did not book it because my daughter changed her wedding date. Leila did however provide us with excellent service for which we are very grateful. We will definitely use GreatEscapes services again. Leila and everyone else we have worked with has been great to work with, providing higher customer care than any other vacation company we have worked with. Ken G, Lakewood Village, TX

Thank you for providing us with such kind and sincerely helpful individuals. Too often older people, like ourselves, are frustrated by the lack of regard for clients who are just trying to work through the system. Bryce C, Orem, UT

I dealt with two other service reps with two other cruise companies. When I called GreatEscapes Shirley was able to beat the prices these other two people had given me plus reminded me I had some Escape dollars to use which reduced the cost of the cruise I wanted even further. I immediately booked the cruise we wanted with Shirley and wondered why I didnt call GreatEscapes  in the first place! From now on, they will be my first call and probably the only one I will have to make. Shirley is terrific!!! Robert H, Salt Lake City, UT

I have been satisfied with every GreatEscapes vacation that I have booked. Keep up the GOOD work! Wendall A, Marlinton, WV

My name is Phil Brock, and recently booked a trip with GreatEscapes through Ann Marie Byrd. This morning my boss came up to me and stated that even though I was a newer employee, I was not allowed to have the time off - even without pay - because of corporate policy. Either modify my plans or not have a job. I called Your Vacation Club immediately, and was relieved when Ann Marie answered the phone because she did such a professional, courteous, and friendly job with the original booking. After discussing several options, she was able to contact Apple Vacations while I was on hold, rearrange our vacation to fit in the time frame I was allowed, and followed up with the paperwork (e-mail) in short order. It's professional people like her that makes Stephanie and I not only glad we used Your Vacation Club, but we also continue to tell our family and friends of the wonderful experiences we have booking our vacations through you. Thanks again for wonderful employees like Ann Marie, and we'll continue to book our trips through this fine organization.  Sincerely Phil B
