HI Tours is a travel wholesaler, specializing in holidays to Greece and the Mediterranean.
Don’t get caught in the World Wide Web. WWW…. world wide web or world wide worry????
We have all heard the stories from some people who claim to have “saved a fortune” by booking direct on the Internet. While we doubt that this is true, what about the countless stories of people being ripped off, not getting the services that they thought they paid for, or indeed being stuck in a foreign country with heavy suitcases and no accommodation at all? If you wouldn’t give a total stranger a blank cheque, why would you provide your credit card details over the internet to who knows whom? Fraudulent websites can mean that you get nothing at all except for a hefty swipe on your credit card as well as the possible inconvenience of having to cancel your card and have a new one issued. In the event that there are any disputes there is very little if anything that you can do by way of getting your money back.
That is where HI Tours and our travel agency partners come into the picture.
We are here to assist with the complicated ferry system in Greece where the timetable is usually more of a wish list than a reality. If the ferry service should go out on strike or weather issues prevail, our local representative will assist in arranging an alternative form of transportation or amend your ferry and hotel booking. It is important for you to know that there are both reliable and unreliable sources of information on the web with regards to Greek ferries and hydrofoils. The trick is to know which is which, and that is not easy to do. If you insist on booking and paying for a ferry based on timetable information provided by unreliable sources, we can only wish you the best of luck!
We are here to recommend hotels that suit your need in a location we know that you would want. Imagine booking a hotel on the internet and not being aware that it is still being built or undergoing renovations and that you might be in the midst of a building site or worse. Choosing a hotel based on what you hope is an accurate description of the hotel, it’s location and facilities is a recipe for disaster.
We are here to tell you about the differences between the various hotels and which ones we believe would be best suited to your need. Pictures can be deceiving! What looks fantastic on the web might well be an enhanced photo that has no reality compared to what you will be getting. The old saying “never judge a book by its cover” is very true when it comes to certain unreliable websites.
