WHAT IS MLJ VACAY?

 

MLJ Vacay is a company that believes vacation planning should be simple. We offer vacation planning services to help travelers to experience the most out of their vacay. Using our own travel experience and expertise, we put together a day-by-day guide of how you will spend your vacay. Gone are the days of spending hours researching your destination, finding time to schedule your activities, and the stress of making everyone happy.   

HOW DOES THE VACATION PLANNING PROCESS WORK?

When you purchase our vacation planning services, you will be sent a workbook to indicate your vacay preferences. Think of the workbook as your vacay want/need list. A vacay consultant then uses your workbook to build your customized vacation itinerary. Itineraries spell out the "who, what, where and when" of your vacay. MLJ Vacay is not affiliated or incentivized to recommend any items provided in an itinerary. 

 

Itineraries start with accommodation recommendations and include several options for you to select from and book for your stay. All lodging accommodations will be the responsibility of the traveler to confirm booking.

 

From there, itineraries break down each day you will be on vacay - AM to PM. To see a sample itinerary click here. Included in every vacation planning package is one round of revisions to your itinerary. It is our mission to make sure your vacay is planned to meet your every need.

In the last step of the vacation planning process, your vacation consultant will confirm any restaurant and activity reservations that do not require immediate credit card information. Any activities that require credit card information or authorization to complete the booking will be the responsibility of the traveler to book.

DO I NEED TO MAKE MY OWN VACATION TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS? 

MLJ Vacay differs from many traditional travel agencies in that we plan your time at a destination as opposed to getting you to your destination. You will be responsible for ensuring travel to/from your destination is booked.

AFTER PURCHASING MY VACATION PLANNING SERVICES, WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE AN ITINERARY?

After filling out and submitting your workbook, our vacay consultants will begin to create your customized itinerary. You will receive your itinerary for review 4-6 weeks prior to you travel date. We have found this time frame allows for the most up-to date information and is ideal for bookings/reservations to be confirmed.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PURCHASE A VACATION PLANNING PACKAGE?

To ensure you have the most accommodation opportunities in your destination, we suggest purchasing our vacation planning packages a minimum of 8-10 weeks prior to your travel date. Keep in mind, seasonality may affect the availability in some destinations and purchasing earlier than the recommended 8-10 weeks may be optimum.

Already less than 8 weeks out from your vacay? No worries! 8-10 weeks is merely a guideline that we think ensures accommodation availability. Our vacation planning services can be used for last minute or on-whim vacays too!

DO I NEED A SPECIFIC VACATION BUDGET TO USE MLJ VACAY'S PLANNING SERVICES?

The short answer - no! You will decide (and indicate in your workbook) what you want to spend on vacay and we will plan your vacation with your budget in mind. To help create a budget for your vacay, check out a few helpful tips on our blog.
 
All fees associated with purchasing MLJ Vacay’s vacation planning services cover the planning and scheduling of your vacay.  MLJ Vacay acts as the planning agent for your vacay; you are responsible for all costs associated or accrued on the vacay. 
  

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY VACAY?

MLJ Vacay vacation packages are paid for during online checkout. An MLJ Vacay vacation package can be returned in full within 24 hours of purchase, provided an itinerary has not been sent to you. After 24 hours all sales are final. 

In the unfortunate event that you need to cancel your vacay after an itinerary has been sent, please notify MLJ Vacay. We will proceed to cancel any reservations booked on your behalf as listed in the itinerary. You are responsible for canceling all reservations you booked for your vacay. Cancellation fees and terms are subject to a vendors terms & conditions.  

Your MLJ Vacay itinerary will remain vacation-ready the month of your original travel date. After the month of the original travel date, while you still may take your vacay, MLJ Vacay is not responsible for the availability of the itinerary selections. If you would like to use MLJ Vacay to reschedule your vacay, please contact us to purchase a rescheduling package for a small fee. Upon purchasing a rescheduling package, we will reschedule all itinerary items that do not require prepayment.
