Frequently asked questions
What are the perks of booking with an agent?
In most cases a travel agent can get you a cheaper rate for your travel. Other times, we can match the rate of another company or apply a promo code to get it lower (if available). Except with some OTA’s (Online Travel Agencies) such as BookIt, BookVip, Groupon etc. The packages they offer would have to match “Apples to Apples” to what our quote is in order for us to match them. Most times OTA rates are cheaper because they require you to do a Time Share presentation to get their rates once you arrive at your resort or at some point during your stay. As well as in their fine print they list that they have the right to move you to a different resort, other than the one you selected and paid for, if the resort is fully booked for your travel dates. The resort may give their regular price paying customers first preference and move you to an alternate location without warning.
In addition, we offer other things OTA's don’t such as lower deposits, low monthly payment plans and the option to finance your trip over time. In most cases without an agent, you must pay Upfront & in Full. We also specialize in group travel including Destination Weddings, and handle everyone's travel arrangements from start to finish alleviating the stress of planning such a trip on your own. We are also available to our clients 24hrs a day during travel, we have established relationships with tons of vendors so we can offer additional incentives and perks that some larger companies can’t. & we actually care, if your flight is missed, or your trip is interrupted, etc. We make contactig us to help get your trip back on track, easy. These are just some of many perks involved with allowing a GOOD travel agent to arrange your travel ....
Does TAB Travel recommend Travel Insurance?
Yes! We highly recommend adding travel insurance to every package no matter the destination. Insurance is a great way to protect your investment. Travel insurance not only protects you from things such as trip interruption and loss of luggage. It also gives you the ability to cancel for any reason, as well as provides added health coverage for unforeseen sickness or injuries while on vacation.
Do you offer Payment Plans?
Yes! We offer payment plans for as low as $50 per month beginning the month after your initial deposit is paid. All vacations must be paid in full 45 days prior to departure.
How can I finance my vacation?
Take A Bre8k Travel now offers the ability for you to finance your vacation for up to 24 months. In order to finance your vacation with us, please first start by submitting a "Travel Inquiry Form". Once you have decided on the perfect vacation package, we will send you a link to apply to finance your vacation through our financial partner. The agency does however charge a non refundable upfront processing fee of $25 plus a 6% tax for those who wish to finance. Financing requires you to put down a deposit (amount determined by financing company) and the remaining balance will be split evenly over the next 23 months into equal payments (interest may apply; rate is dependent on your specific credit when pulled). A decision is made by the company within seconds.
If for some reason financing isn’t approved, as long as it’s still more than 45 days prior to your date of departure, you still qualify to pay a deposit with the agency instead, and make $50 minimum monthly payments until your trip is paid in full (due date is usually 45 days before date of departure).
If you would like to proceed with financing, after your vacation package is finalized, please complete our Credit Card Authorization Form. Be sure to select Uplift Financing as your transaction type.
I need an additional quote, what's your fee?
TAB Travel charges a $25 fee plus a 6% tax for each quote over the initial request. Please complete our transaction form when you are ready to request an additional quote. Be sure to select Additional Quote Request as your transaction type.
Do you Travel to Present to a Group(s)?
Due to COVID restrictions and limitations, we no longer offer in person group travel presentations. In lieu of traveling, we generally recommend “The Host” virtually chooses from a variety of recommended resort options and excursions for the group. As host, you would also be responsible for signing the “Group Booking Contract”. After all selections are made, all trip details will be presented to your group in the form of a Complementary “Newsletter”. Your newsletter would be unique to your trip, group, room choices and would entail every detail your group would need to know concerning the trip. Including contact information for the agency so that they may book direct, make updates, ask any additional questions, and request customized quotes.

Refunds generally take between 14-21 business days to be credited back to the method of payment for those who elected travel protection when booking your trip. Due to COVID and the unpresedented number of recent cancellations, refubds are taking upwards to 90 days to be returned in some severe instances. Any resort or air credits are subject to the discretion of the resort or air carrier for those who cancel without travel protection.
