Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to general questions about Vacations Made Easy.
How can I contact Vacations Made Easy?
During what hours can I speak to a Customer Service Representative?
On the top, right-hand corner of every page, you'll find a link titled "Contact Us." We've included a form through which you may e-mail us with your questions, compliments or concerns. You also have the ability to contact us via phone, fax, or send an email to us.
Does Vacations Made Easy own all the properties listed on this site?
Our knowledgeable and helpful Customer Service Representatives are waiting to assist you Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (CST) and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. We even have limited hours available on holidays! Please remember that these hours are subject to change, and we may ask you to leave a message when we're experiencing unusually high call volume. Should you need to leave a message, we promise to return your call promptly.
Is there a fee to use your service?
We'd certainly be happy if we did! We offer hundreds of products in dozens of cities, but we don't own them. We maintain great partnerships with these properties in order to provide you with one-stop vacation planning and shopping.
Can you send brochures?
To provide you with outstanding service seven days a week, we've built our pricing to include all taxes and a small service fee, so the quoted price is all you'll pay. Because of our relationship with lodging and attraction venues, however, you'll find that our prices are comparable to gate price.
How do I subscribe to your e-mail newsletters?
We try to provide you with all the information you need right on our website. If you still have questions, our knowledgeable Customer Service Representatives would be happy to help you. Unfortunately we can't send brochures to you -- with thousands of vacation products, we'd have to rent a pretty big warehouse just to stock brochures on all of them!
How do I unsubscribe to your e-mail newsletters?
On the upper right-hand of every page, right above our featured vacation packages, you'll find a link.
You'll find a link at the bottom of every e-mail that will allow you to unsubscribe.
How Do I Place an Order?
Frequently asked questions about placing orders.
Can I book a hotel only?
Can I customize my vacation package?
You certainly can! Just click on the hotel where you'd like reservations, and you'll be guided through the rest of the process.
What if I want to cancel my order?
Of course you can. It's one of the reasons we offer such a wide variety of products: so you can choose the vacation that best suits you. At the very top of every page, you'll find the tools to personalize your vacation. You'll also find these links at the bottom of our feature articles.
What if I want to make changes to my reservation?
Because we secure your purchase with our vendors, we have a set cancellation policy. Please read our terms and conditions thoroughly and call us with any questions. If you think that cancellation is a possibility, we highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance when placing your reservations.
How do I cancel my reservations?
To maintain a strong working relationship with our vendors while offering you the best possible pricing, we have to minimize the amount of time spent by our staff and theirs. Changes mean more man-hours for both parties, and we consequently must charge a $20 fee for any date or time changes. Because we secure your purchases with our vendors, changes cannot be made within ten days of your arrival date. Please refer to our terms and conditions.
Do you offer group discounts?
Please refer to our terms and conditions to get a complete understanding of our policies. Contact our Customer Service Representatives as soon as you know you will be cancelling your order. It's important to contact Vacations Made Easy and not the vendor to make your cancellation. You'll need to return your vouchers immediately to the address below. For your own protection, we recommend you send the vouchers to us via return receipt, signature required post. Vacations Made Easy 1325 W. Sunshine #537 Springfield, MO 65807
How is my privacy and credit card information secured?
When are my reservations made?
How far in advance do I need to make a reservation?
As soon as we receive your order, we contact our vendors and confirm your reservations.
How do I make a reservation online?
All of our products are subject to availability, so you'll want to make your reservation as soon as you've made your decision. However, if the product you want is still available, you can place your order as late as one hour before your scheduled arrival.
What should I do if an error occurs while I'm placing my order?
Just click on the product you'd like to reserve, and follow the prompts. If you have any trouble, call our Customer Service Representatives and they'll be happy to assist you.
Can prices on vacations change?
Contact our Customer Service Representatives and they'll be happy to assist you.
When is my credit card charged?
Yes, our prices are subject to change. But once you've placed your order, the prices are locked. The only way to guarantee a specific price is to place your order at the time the quote is initially received. All prices are in US dollars.
What forms of payment do you accept?
After your order has been placed, we usually process your credit card order within 24 hours.
When do I need to make payment on my order?
For individuals, we accept Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express. For groups, we only accept payment in checks or money orders.
How long does it take to get my vouchers?
You must make payment in full at the time you place your order.
How do I view or print my vouchers once my reservation is made?
If you choose to have your vouchers e-mailed to you, you'll generally receive your vouchers within 72 hours. If you choose to have your vouchers mailed to you, expect their arrival within seven to ten business days.
Do I really need my vouchers?
When you receive your voucher through e-mail, you'll find prompts that lead you through the process. If you experience trouble, contact our Customer Service Representatives for assistance.
Do package prices include fees and taxes?
Yes. Your vouchers are your proof of purchase, and you will not be able to use the product without them.
Should I purchase travel insurance?
Yes, our package prices are inclusive of all taxes and service fees.
What happens if I decline travel insurance?
We highly recommend it! Travel insurance covers you in the event that unforeseen circumstances cause the need to cancel or interrupt your vacation. Most vacation providers, including Vacations Made Easy, charge for cancellations.
How can I get the best seats for concerts and shows?
You don't need to purchase travel insurance to purchase products on our website (We don't sell your travel insurance ourselves). But keep in mind that we have set cancellation policies, and when you agree to our terms and conditions by making a purchase, you accept these policies.
What documentation do I need for my trip to Canada?
Vacations Made Easy always books your seating as "Best Available" in the section you purchase your seating in. This means that your seats will be the best of the theater seats that haven't been purchased yet. So the best way to get great seats for that concert or show is to make your reservations early.
What currency are your prices quoted in?
Non-U.S. residents may be asked to show a passport and a valid visa, if one is necessary. If you are a resident or citizen of the United States, carry proof of your citizenship (birth certificate, certificate of citizenship, or naturalization certificate). And bring a government-issued, photo I.D. (drivers' license or state I.D.). If you are a permanent resident of the U.S. (i.e., you have a green card), you should bring proof. Those traveling with children that aren't their own must have a signed letter from the child's parents. As always, check with the Canada Border Services Agency for the latest information before departing on your trip.
How do I know my reservation is confirmed?
All of our prices are in U.S. dollars.
After you've placed your order, you'll receive an e-mail confirmation.
