Q:

We were interested in checking this out. My husband and I would like to take a trip to Europe this fall and this definitely interests us. Only question we have is we would like to fly Delta and use sky miles for one of the tickets. Is this a possibility or should we look into something else?

Savanna T.  asked on  Mar 13, 2013

A:

Accrued frequent flier miles cannot be used toward the purchase of Gate 1's airfare or used for class upgrades, however, airfare purchased through Gate 1 Travel may qualify to earn you additional miles.

Q:

I just called Gate1 and inquired about two specific dates, 12/19 and 12/26 departures. I was told the original flights were "sold out" and there would be an additional $130 surcharge per person. This makes absolutely no sense to me. You already offer different prices for different departure dates. There already is a "surcharge" for leaving on 12/19 vs 11/7 so why would there be an additional supplement? If that is the case, you shouldn't even offer these on Groupon. That is misleading. I do not want to make the purchase, thinking I am buying for that specific date, only to be told that the dates are "sold out" and I'd have to pay significantly extra.

Hi Bo - We regret that you were given misinformation when you called. The price for air from NYC is guaranteed as advertised.

Q:

I would love to take my mom on this trip as her parents were both from the former Yugoslavia. (Grandma from Zagreb). She is 74 years old but uses a walker, (sometimes cane), but for longer distances we use a folding wheelchair. I spoke with someone at your agency, I was told that wheelchairs and walkers aren't allowed (even though they fold fairly flat) on the tour bus at all. My mom can walk short distances with a cane, and I realize that even with a walker or wheelchair may not be able to get to certain spots on the tour, however I would hate to have to miss this opportunity to take her somewhere she has dreamt of going her entire life just because she has some physical challenges. Would there be any other options for us? Would they have wheelchairs at some of the locations that I could rent once we arrive? I'm hoping there is something I can do. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or options that might work for us.

Maria F.  asked on  Mar 13, 2013

A:

Unfortunately, what you were told when you called still stands. Due to physical constraints and space limitations, wheelchairs, walkers, and motorized scooters may not be taken aboard motor coaches, nor are these devices suitable for touring. These devices may be utilized in public spaces such as airports, but may not be used while sightseeing. While we understand your desire to visit Croatia, this tour may not be suitable for your mother. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Gate 1 Travel again.

Q:

Dear Sir/Madame, Is the trip round trip from NY to Venice and back? What cruise line does this tour utilize since we are flying into Venice? Once we arrive on the Croatia side, are we totally "finished" with the cruise line/ferry and travel totally via bus? Do we take the cruise line/ferry back to Venice if flying out of Venice? Where is Gate 1 Travel located. Thank you in advance for answering these questions. lg

Lucia C.  asked on  Mar 13, 2013

A:

No cruise line is utilized on this trip. You will travel from destination to destination by coach bus, not a ferry or cruise. Gate 1 Travel is located in the suburbs of Philadelphia. For more information, please call 800-682-3333 to speak with a Gate 1 Travel Reservation Specialist.

Q:

I see that the departure is from NYC and other probable US cities as well. I'm residing in Vancouver and I was wondering if it is possible to join the tour from where I'm coming from? If so, how much would be the cost and I'll be travelling solo as well. Do we need to apply for a visa? I have a Filipino passport and have a Permanent Residency card for Canada.

Mariya Q.  asked on  Mar 13, 2013

A:

Yes, you may depart from Vancouver for a supplemental fee of approximately $300, subject to departure date and availability at the time of booking. You may also choose to depart from NYC, but you are responsible for booking your flight from Vancouver to NYC. Because you are traveling solo, you will also have to pay a single supplement fee of $350 at the time of booking with Gate 1 Travel. Passengers with Gate 1 Travel who are not U.S. citizens must check with the respective consulate or a visa agency to determine what personal identification is required. For more information, please call 800-682-3333 to speak with a Gate 1 Travel Reservation Specialist.
