Kudos for my award booking service in Conde Nast Traveler

Flyertalk’s Smart Shopper calls my attention to a letter in the November issue of Conde Nast Traveler praising my award booking service.

After reading Wendy Perrin’s oft-repeated praise of frequent-flier expert Gary Leff on The Perrin Post *), contacted him regarding my upcoming European itinerary. Gary was incredible – he knew every carrier, every seat, every nuance. He handled everything, and we saved money by using our American Express points to book business-class flights.

That’s what I like to hear!

  1. Congrats, Gary! Folks are fortunate to find you with your encyclopedic knowledge of all the programs.

    Do I remember that you charge $150 for the service? Is that per person? Mind you, I intend to continue to do my own – but you never know when I’ll get so frustrated with Starnet blocking, that I’ll throw my hands up in frustration.

  2. HA!

    I’ve been charging $150 for the first person and $100 each additional person.

    But I’ve been rethinking somewhat, I think $250 for up to 2 pasengers and $100 each additional makes better sense for me.

    I only charge after I have satisfied a customer with the itinerary they want and actually booked it for them.

    Starnet blocking? I really relish a challenge…. 🙂
