Now that we are all headed back on the road, I would like to suggest that more of the programs allow us to do back to back. I was signed up for Key West & Signature City Miami last year with one day between programs. As we all know those were canceled. When I looked for same programs this year the dates did not allow for back to back.
I think more people would do back to back programs if they were scheduled as such.
Hello!Keeping back-to-back opportunities in mind when adding new dates for our programs is an excellent suggestion. I will make sure to send this note to the appropriate team!Warmly,Tom M.
Hi Pam!Thank you for being so active and helpful on the discussion boards. I will also forward your suggestions along. We hope to improve everyone's experience here and make it more accessible.
Pam. Always willing to hear any suggestions and advice.
Happy Travels. P
I so agree! Particularly with something like Key West and Miami. I suspect many would fly in to Miami any way and it would be natural to add on a tour there. On several iterations back of the website they had suggestions for programs that would easily pair with the program you were looking at...but that useful bit of information disappeared before Covid changed the world.
I love to do Back to Backs! You get much more bang for your airfare, lol!
Can't wait to travel!
Thank you Tom!
It looks like you have been assigned the job of answering questions on the forum and I'd like to welcome you. There is not much action here but your participation will be greatly appreciated as there are some questions that TravelHound and I are not able to respond to!
If there are any changes being considered for the forum I'd like to suggest doing something about the Private Message function. It is awful. Of course, over the last year the numbers here have dwindled from "just a few" to really sparse so maybe there's not any move afoot to change things. It would also be helpful if people were notified via email when a reply had been made to their question.
TravelHound...hope you don't mind me adding suggestions onto your thread!
Thank you again,Tom M.
I have mentioned this possibility a few times to RS people when I called to sign up for programs in the past. Since I hate flying and we are being told to reduce our carbon footprint, I try to participate in back-to-back programs but it is a real challenge. I worked that out for a previous year but the trips were cancelled due to the pandemic. Unfortunately, I am unable to replicate the trips since one of the two is no longer being offered. I did manage to get two other programs in Europe back-to-back for next spring, with a few days in between.
