We just booked a Uniworld river cruise (Amsterdam to Vienna) in July, 2014. Has anybody had any experience with Uniworld's air pricing versus ................. (or similar)? We are travelling from Toronto if that makes a difference. I know that they currently have a promotion for air but that wouldn't be applicable to this cruise.
We have travelled 3 times with Uniworld - and have booked their air once.
My suggestion is to look for prices (realizing you are travelling in peak season) - get a couple of ideas of route/airlines - and then ask if Uniworld can match it.
This is a website identified by someone here on CC. You cannot book your flights here, but can get an idea of what your options are. I often start here - and if I find a flight I like - look directly on the companies website to see what the costs would be there. Then I call my TA - and see if her consolidator can match it, or better it.
Air Canada just sent out an e-mail about new European routes (with Rouge). Didn't pay a lot of attention, as we are already booked for our trip in June.
When we flew into Amsterdam, we flew KLM from Pearson, as we wanted a direct flight. At the time we went (not sure if it has changed) only KLM and Delta flew direct Toronto to Amsterdam.
Good luck with your planning!!
