Upgrade Completed; But still a work in progress!

Hello travelers!

As you can see, we upgraded our forums on Wednesday Oct 15th. We're back up and running, but we are still a work in progress! We'll be renaming things and creating an all around better experience. In the meantime, you can use the forums (the functionality is extremely similar to what you are used to). We hope to be finished tweaking things very shortly. Thank you for your patience; it is appreciated!

    Re: Vacation Packages: What's Included?

    ABTA and ATOL are the UK's names to look out for on any package deal....a small firm went bust this weekend, but the pax were all protected. We like the packages which have their own aircraft, like Virgin and Thomson, so that we're with them from the moment we take the flight to our return. We've not had any bad moments with packages which were due to the operator.
