When’s the last time you had a vacation? If you’re looking to travel, but you’re not interested in the headache of all the planning, you could turn to a company I trust to do the planning for you: GET AWAY TODAY.

I have investigated GET AWAY TODAY and its owners Julie and Chuck Smith. I have investigated their history, their licensing*, and their commitment to customer satisfaction.**  As a result of my investigation, I endorse GET AWAY TODAY, and I am proud to declare them GEPHARDT APPROVED.

“We love helping families plan exciting vacations at a fair price,” says Jennifer Dunyon the Vice President of Communications for GET AWAY TODAY, and the daughter of owners Chuck, and Julie Smith. “We know what we’re doing, and we’re definitely someone you can trust to make sure every detail helps achieve life long memories.”

“They take away the stress of vacation planning.” – Patty Malmrose, customer.

“I have been using GET AWAY TODAY for about 7 years now,” customer Patty Malmrose tells me. “They have great service, low prices, and they really take care of me. They take away the stress of vacation planning. I recently used them to book a trip for 20 people. This would not have been possible without their help.”

Julie says GET AWAY TODAY is commonly known for Disney vacations, but they can assist you in planning vacations anywhere in the world. “We love planning cruises, trips to Mexico, and Hawaii. We also get a lot of business for Sandal’s Resort vacations. We’ve got you covered from flights, to hotels, to dinners, and any excursion. You name it, we can get it done.”

We have worked with these hotels for a long time. Our great relationships translate into great savings.”

What exactly makes GET AWAY TODAY a Disney specialist? “My parents love to travel,” says Julie. “They took our family to Disneyland over 25 years ago. When we got back from our vacation they realized a need for making Disneyland more affordable for families. GET AWAY TODAY was born in our basement and has now grown to over 55 employees. Over these past years GET AWAY TODAY has established phenomenal relationships with hotels which is one of the reasons we’ve got the best prices around.”

Julie tells me another reason they’re confident in their abilities to plan the best vacations is the resources they provide their staff. “We actually send our staff all around the world to stay at these hotels. The only way we could efficiently plan every detail of your trip is by experiencing it for ourselves. Our staff has found this to be extremely helpful when helping others and it’s a fun little perk.”

They called to ask how we liked our accommodations.” – Patty Malmrose, customer.

“The staff is incredibly helpful,” says customer Patty Malmrose. “They actually called us right before our vacation, the first night of our stay, and then they followed-up with us to make sure we experienced everything that was promised to us.”

“It’s really important for us to deliver what we promise to our customers,” says Julie. “There have been times where a customer has arrived at a hotel and the hotel wasn’t exactly what they wanted. We would have never known this if we didn’t call when they first arrived. We were able to switch their accommodations and they were very happy.”

“When you see our price, it’s the final price. We don’t add in little charges like many other companies.”

Julie tells me customers often times feel they can get a better deal if they book without an agent, but she says that not always the case. “Not only do we get great rates because of our established relationship with hotels, but also, we have a team dedicated to checking the rates of our competitors. We even have a price guarantee if one of our customers finds a lower package than what we offer we will beat that offer by $10. “

So there you go: GET AWAY TODAY. Now you know what I know about the company. You know about their owners Julie and Chuck Smith. You know about their history, their services, and their dedication to customer satisfaction.

Now you know why I endorse GET AWAY TODAY, and why I am proud to declare them GEPHARDT APPROVED.
