A travel agency is a very special type of business. They collect money in advance for the promise of future services some of which are described in the vaguest possible terms. People should only deal with proven, solvent and highly reputable travel companies. The presence of an entertainer or apparent endorsement of a trip by a celebrity is a very common distraction from the fact that the company has no track record and may be virtually insolvent. Many times, the money is all spent before the first guest arrives. These poor suckers were lucky they weren’t sleeping on the beach under the stars. Coconut milk anyone?
