Top 10 Reasons to Use Highlight Travel & Cruises
(With a Little Deference to David Letterman)
- You prepaid your trip online and now the supplier has gone bankrupt!
Your prepaid travel dollars, including airline and cruiseline tickets are protected through our contributions to the Ontario Travel Industry Act Consumer Protection Fund. If you don't think big companies can go under - they can - just look at Swissair, Sabena Airlines and a host of cruise lines and tour companies. Book without us and you are on your own.
- So you think you got a great deal but it's complicated!
We shop the world for the best fares, connections and availability, saving you time and money. Airlines don't offer alternative choices - only their own. You cannot book complicated itineraries online or with one supplier and feel assured that you got the best price/value. Suppliers don't necessarily put the lowest price on line - just the price they want you to buy!
- You want "a single throat to choke" when something goes wrong!
If you have a problem with a particular part of your travel experience, we are here to act on your behalf to see that restitution is made. We belong to Ensemble Travel Group - one of the largest agency groups in North America. This translates into greater clout when fighting for our customers' rights and making sure restitution is made. We also belong to the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies (ACTA) who represents the interests of Canadian Travellers,

The Owners Are in the Store
We can make decisions quickly, independently, with you as our primary concern. You know whom you are dealing with - not some anonymous website. Instead of an impersonal voice thousand of miles away, we are your neighbours. We know what you want and what you value in your travel experience. Otherwise, what do you do when that website photo of the great beach is not what is in front of your hotel? Or that suite you looked at online turns out to be smaller than your powder room.
