Anyone used Go.today.com for booking trips?

HI, I am being tempted by some great sounding packages on the web from this Seattle-based company (Go-today.com.) Has anyone used them for travel?

Thanks

Hi,
Go-Today is the best travel discounter out there. I used them a few months ago for a trip to London and Paris. The price was right, much lower than any other package. The tickets arrived about 6 weeks before we departed and the trip was flawless.

We choose the budget accomodations, so the hotels in both cities were converted townhouses. The rooms were clean, but small and the staff was very friendly and professional. In London, our hotel was on Sussex Gardens about 5 minutes walk from Paddington Station. In Paris, the hotel was in the 1er, half a block from Tuilieres and The Louvre. Our transportation from London to Paris was via the Eurostar and for 28 each, we were able to upgrade to 1st class. The only thing that was not included in the package was transportation between the hotels and the Eurostar train stations. So we took the tube from our London hotel to Waterloo station and took a taxi from Gare du Nord to our Paris hotel. But I will definitely use them again. Good Luck!

Erin: What were the names of your hotels in London and Paris?

Hi,
We used Go-Today last April for a Trip to London and found them to be authentic, and very accomodating. The price was the best we've seen for a Week in London for Air and Hotel plus they included a "London for Less" book and Transfers to and from the airport. We asked if we could extend our trip another 8 days so we could take in Bath, Stratford and York on our own and they accomodated us at no extra cost. They even booked our last night in England for us in London for our Flight home the next day at a very good rate. We had to be a little flexible on our Leaving and Returning dates but it all worked out to a wonderful experience. I too had my doubts at first about using an "E-Mail only" travel company but I will definitely use them again. Our Hotel in London was the Forte Posthouse Bloomsbury and was nice and comfy and in a great Location. I'd say Go for It, just be flexible as to which dates you depart (have a 2nd and 3rd choice of dates). Hope this helps, Good Luck

In London, my hotel was The Royal Sussex Hotel on Sussex Gardens. In Paris, the Louvre St Romain on rue St Roch.

Hi Al--
Go-Today.com should work, I just used it and it worked for me. Their server does go down on Wed or Thurs when they update it but it should work. They also have a links with TravelZoo.com under vacation packages. Or you can look up the articles that Frommers.com has for them by doing a search under their newsletters. They used to be Europeanvacations.com or europevacations.com but changed to
Go-today.com. Keep trying, it's worth it!!

Kathryn,

We used go-today.com for two bookings in the last year --a fly-drive to England and an air/hotel combination to Paris.
The ticketing was in order and promised services delivered. However, if there is a glick in the course of your travels, there may be little help offered by their staff. As long as you are resourceful and can deal "on your own' with any irregularities that arise, you'll find their packages good value.

The company recently changed its web site to go-today.com from europe vacations.com, since they are now offerings packages to other areas of the globe besides Europe.

I've just tried three different variations of 'go-today.com' and all three times got a message that said 'The system cannot find the file specified.' Any other suggestions?

Hi Harriet--
I just loggged onto Go-today.com with no problems. It could be it's just too busy or down for maintainence. Refer to my earlier post as they do have links with Frommers and TravelZoo's web pages. If not try your web browser to find Go-today. It should work eventually. Good Luck.
