How to pay deposit if agency is closed?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

In Ontario, Canada, all non essential companies were told to close.  I book my cruises with a travel agent company.  My final payment is due May 29 for a August cruise.

 

How do I pay or cancel the final payment?

If you cannot contact the agency try calling RCI and explaining that the company is closed down. Though many agents work from home on a computer and not in a company office. If that is the case with your agency the shutdown should not really affect you.

May 29 is a long way off....If your cruise is "still on", I'm sure there will be a way to pay online as the date gets closer.

My agent (the owner of the agency) answered the phone.  She did not want to talk as so busy with cancellation and with the new set of cancellation.  She said, she is dealing with May/June cruises.

Sounds like while the store front is not open, it sounds she is still working with her clients

 

Since you have until the end of May why not just wait.

You still have two months to work it out. I really don’t see a problem.

Sounds like your TA answered your question.

Won’t work for bookings done through a travel agent 

That phone number that is listed isn't going to work for anything. 😉

Hello,

 

My experience here in the UK is that RCI was quite happy to receive money from me regardless of the origin / method of original booking.

 

Regards,

I wish that CC would relax it's rules and let people post who their TA is if they are having issues.  I think it would be very helpful as a community if we could share that information with each other right now.
