Lee L. chartering in Greece
"Dear Ed., I just received your brochure in the mail and it reminded me how sad I am that we did not book our charter with you this year. A few years ago my husband and I arranged a charter through you in the BVI. This year we decided to go to Greece and because of the exchange rate, decided to use a local agent. Because of some misunderstandings with an agent prematurely booking our air tickets, we are now stuck with the choice of foregoing our deposit of about $800.00 or booking tickets ourselves(and thus paying for two sets of tickets), or realizing that we may have a shortened trip. Needless to say we are very disappointed...disappointed in ourselves for not asking you to arrange this trip for us. We realize, now too late, how important it is to have a travel company and charter agent that one trusts when arranging trips such as boat charters. We didn't appreciate you enough."
