Today is September 22, 2007.
I am planning my first train trip and my first time using Yahoo Travel. It looks like a good tool. Be sure and click on the Schedule and Map tabs above to look over the trip.
Today is January 2, 2008
and my trip has been postponed. I will update actual dates as I go along but I wanted to put a note in here for future travelers.
Read the fine print for YAHOO / TRAVELOCITY FOR RESERVATIONS.
I was charged a 25.00 cancell fee, 26 days out, for a hotel reservation in Seattle. My hotels along the way in San Antonio, Los Angeles and Chicago were all cancelled without incident. The agent was polite but informed me of the policy and I politely informed her I would not be using Yahoo travel again. Heads up, read the fine print. It was my bad, I just assumed that the travel would be like other companies. No trouble with Amtrak, Travelnow or Staybridge. Just one of those things
