Dear Joyce,

How many times have we heard of those "last minute" specials for travel? Being a past auditor, I will from time to time check these last minute rates as compared to rates if reservations were made in advance - my analysis has showed that over 90% of the time travelers will benefit the most when they make their reservations in advance.

This year I have found that there was an increase in inquires regarding last minute travel specials, which can be attributed to the mass blitzes of advertising in the media. Just open the newspaper, watch TV or get online - you will see a litany of discounted travel ads proclaiming to have the best prices for various destinations. The call to action with these ads is for you to travel.

It is through these highly successful advertising campaigns that the travel companies are hoping you will succumb to their request to "travel."

It is our job as travel consultants to teach our clients how to travel smartly. I highly encourage everyone to try and book your travel arrangements in the future so as to get the best rates as well as securing the most desirable properties. It is everyone's goal in traveling to get the best value for each and every travel experience.

It is our goal to help you become a savvy traveler, experience the world the way you want to, and to get the best value for each getaway so as to save for your next Incredible Journey.

    Dear Endora

    Dear Endora,

    I heard that in Hawaii motorized "thrill" crafts can only be used from mid May to mid December, why?

    Seeking a thrill ride

    Featured Property - Hotel Hana-Maui

    At the end of the Hana Highway is the legendary newly restored Hotel Hana-Maui, a resort that offers complete relaxation and seclusion in the midst of unmatched beauty. For over 50 years, this elegant, luxurious Hawaiian vacation destination has been a favorite for weddings, honeymoons, and romantic getaways.

    2008 Exotic Mexican Riviera Cruise

    Here's your chance to witness the natural beauty of the Exotic Mexican Riviera on a fabulous 8 day cruise round trip from San Diego aboard Carnival Cruise Lines "Fun Ship" the Carnival Spirit.

    Heavenly Hana

    The only way to experience Hana is to stay in Hana. The "road to Hana" is one of the top tourist attractions on Maui, but to experience the real deal one must stay at least two days in this magical oasis to fully enjoy the essence that is Hana.

    Now, I am speaking from experience, as once upon a time I used to live on Maui and happily spent every free moment in this verdant tropical paradise. I used to hike all over the hills, explore various swimming holes, go to Hasegawa general store and visit the myriad of organic farms - and not much has changed over the years, except the road.
