    If it is true that she can cancel you 7 days prior, that is really great.

    Also, she was doing a good job to warn you about the new fuel surcharge. I'd first find out the details because she might be doing everything right.

    Did you book through funjet? if not, the insurance deal isn't always the same. there is access america insurance you can buy after you booked.

She definitely isn't making up these increases or anything like that so in that sense she is doing everything right.
      This is what I am really irritated about! She should have told me before calling guests and confusing and pissing them off!
      I think that most peoples air was paid in full at the time of booking.....because there were very few flights that you could book without paying in full....I thought once a flight was paid for this could not happen?
      It would not make sense if it did....what if a person had a budget for vacation for a whole family expected to pay one price, but they are already booked and freakin screwed if fuel goes up! Ill check up the travel america insurance...

        wow, good to know. At this point with fuel prices the way they are I guess its a good idea to either book your air seperatly and pay at once, or pay your trip in full when you book. I cant stand these fuel costs, its making traveling so expensive.

          when you fly international they can do so many things to you. I've heard stories of people being in mexico & showing up to check in & then being told there is now a $100 departure fee that has to be paid in only pesos. So they had to scramble to get the money in time to get on their flight.

          when i went to london last year they added an $80 departure fee after we booked. we atleast had a couple months notice so we knew to have the money with us.

            Kryztan,

            I am sorry this is happening to you. Your TA sounds like a wanker!
            I don't get why she's harassing your guests either, especially if she todl them they had until a certain day to pay by.
            I would def suggest travel insurance and have never heard that you can cancel everything last-minute with no penalties... usually when you cancel, you can't get money back without travel insurance.

            I used this insurance (not the one my TA offered, as his was more expensive) and got a great deal... totally recommend it. Check it out:
