Good afternoon everyone!
I'm excited to help you get set up with Weebly today so that you can start to create your Travel Agency Project. For those of you who don't know what a travel agency is, it's a company that makes the necessary arrangements for travelers, especially the booking of airline tickets and hotel rooms.
Travelocity and Expedia are both examples of travel agencies. However, most people only use website like those two for finding cheap flights and hotels.
A true travel agency does much more than that. They often put together whole "vacation packages" you can purchase where everything is bundled together for you. For one bargain price a travel agency can sell you a flight, a hotel room, a bunch of tickets to fun sight-seeing activities, and even include the price of dining at restaurants. The reason Travel Agencies can offer low prices on all of these things is because they negotiate directly with the sellers of things like hotel rooms to buy in bulk for cheaper.
Liberty Travel is a great example of a real Travel Agency. On their homepage (below) you can see they sell vacations, cruises, flights, hotels, guided tours, and more!
Please visit the Liberty Travel website by clicking HERE. Then come back to this page, and in the comments box, I would like you to do/write the following (20 points):
1. On the Liberty Vacations page, Click "Vacations" and find a vacation package to a destination you would love to visit for the FIRST time. In the comments box, write down the name of the location you chose (the city).
2. Find out and write down what is included with the vacation (how many nights, the name of the hotel, and any other features).
3. Write down how much this vacation package costs and how many adults it includes (is it a vacation for one person? two people? If it doesn't say, then it is for one person).
4. Submit your comment.
After most of you have submitted I will share my screen to start the setup of your weebly account. While you are waiting for me to do that, please open your "Dear Mr. Griswold Letter" and finish writing it. Remember that that was a 50 point assignment.
