Have Continental Or Starwood Call You!

15

Why wait on hold and try to find your way around a phone tree maze when you can have companies call your phone or talk to you over the web for free?

I used the Starwood callback link extensively while traveling in Israel in order to make and change award reservations (which was especially nice because incoming calls are free on Israeli cell phones!)

It’s just too bad that more companies don’t utilize this great technology…

Hi Dan,

I have 80,000 miles with United and would like to go to Australia for Pesach, but I don’t want to cross the dateline and mess up Shavuos. I was wondering if there was anyway to get United to give me a round the world ticket for the price of a direct flight. I’d like to fly direct to Australia, and around the world on the way back.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks,

Shmuli

Stuck In Israel

Dear Dan, I would like to let you and your readers know that starwood pulled a quickie on us. As you previously pointed out, the only hotel that was changing categories in Israel was Sheraton City Towers.

SPG lied to us!!! The truth is (and this can all be confirmed by checking the individual hotel links) that several hotels in Israel changed categories and here is the list.

Le Meridian Haifa= from category 1 to category 3(!!!)
Le meridian Dead Sea= from category 1 to category 3(!!!)
Le Meridian Eilat= from category 3 to category 4

Thanx for everything Dan. Please post this in the appropriate topic, so we can all know.

Vort

hi dan –
I got an email from Virgin Air regarding a Fly Twice Fly Free promotion. Don’t know if it’s available for everybody or maybe I got it because I just booked 3 flights in the past few weeks
anyways, you might want to post it. Did anyone else get this email?
thanks!

Who wants to be called back and then have them call you when your busy. Most of these companys are easy to get through to especially amazon and starwood

Scrable

Steve: You can tell them when to call you, give a time, at least by some of them.
