Reliable travel agent
 
Can anyone out there recmommend a reliable travel agent specializing in Brazil?<BR>The one I'm dealing with now is not very responsive. I'm located in northern VA but, if<BR>they are reliable they don't necessarily need to<BR>be within arms reach of me.<BR><BR>Also, what about that police strike in Salvador?<BR>I was planning on spending some time there as well as in Rio.<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>JR

Since I'm Brazilian, and live in Rio, I don't know any travel agency in the US that specializes in Brazil.<BR><BR>The police strike in Salvador is over. Some were dismissed and the situation is under control since January,10. Don't worry. <BR><BR>Regards,<BR><BR>S

Sorry about the double post. I dropped my keyboard just as I submitted the first one, and it didn't look like the post went through...obviously, it did.

JR, in the past I have bought plane tickets from airline consolidators, I have gotten great prices on tickets to Brazil, one of these places is BACC travel in New York http://www.brazilianvacation.com/AirOnly.html Also to make Hotel res in Rio try an american in rio named Bobby at WWW.blameitonrio4travel.com, he can make hotel res for you and pick you up at the airport.

<BR>I hope my response does not go against advertising policy of the fodors boards. But since the question was asked....<BR>I am a Brazil Travel Specialist with over 20 years experience working in the Brazil Travel Field. For 6 years of those years I was a tour director based in Rio, receiving groups from the US. I was also travel coordinator for NGOs traveling to the Earth Summit/Global Forum - Rio 92'.<BR>Please feel free to email me and request my full bio. I would be happy to send it to you.<BR>Best Regards - Jill
