Q:

I will be meeting someone in Shanghai and am considering this getaway for myself. Is there a way that travel company can provide a price for an additional person for the Beijing leg of the trip?

nichole h.  asked on  Jul 9, 2013

A:

Hi Nichole, we offer other programs that can be purchased "Land Only" on our website www.friendlyplanet.com. When it comes to Groupon promotions, we cannot take out the airfare. We also do not have the option of separating services for this promotion.

Q:

how much is the difference in flying out of Miami. what are the actual departure date options and if we take our daughter (20) can she stay with us in our room?

Oonna h.  asked on  Jul 11, 2013

A:

Hi Oonna, we can only offer LAX and IAH as departure cities for this program pricing. Any domestic flight price will be determined by our air department within 24 hours from the time of Groupon Redemption. Please request this information at that time. Triple occupancy is not allowed for this program, so you would need to purchase 3 vouchers, and one single supplement of $299.
