Overall

It's a scam. They are doing the exact same thing in Charleston SC. The positive reviews are fake. Notice how they all have the same writing style and were posted within a narrow window of time during September and October of 2014. And no reviews in 2015, 2016, and 2017? They do provide a service, but it's poor service and the prices are much higher than you would find just doing it yourself on Google.

My husband and I returned recently from a 14 day tour to GB/Ireland arranged by Vacation Inspirations. We had never traveled overseas or taken a tour. The tour they arranged for us was top quality. We were very pleased.

Overall

We just returned from a river cruise from Prague to Paris, arranged by Vacation Inspirations (formerly The Vacation Station) and cashed our rebate check for $2,200. While the experience with Viking River Cruises was very satisfying, the entire experience was enhanced by the service and attention to our needs by Heidi, our travel agent at VI. Travel Clubs and time share organizations are notorious for promising far more than they deliver. Vacation Inspirations consistently delivers more than promised. Heidi is always attentive, pro-active, works hard to help us have the best vacation possible, and consistently provides us with information and advantages to the best her extensive experience can provide. We could not be more pleased that we are with our experience with this fine company.



With the advantage of internet, we often find vacations at the same price she could find. However, booking them ourselves would not give us the 20% discount we get from VI, nor would it get us the advantages and service Heidi brings to the table. On the cruise we are taking this Dec, she found us an additional $2,000 discount between the time we booked the cruise, paid our deposit, and the time we had to pay the final bill.

My wife and I have been members since July 2009 and have done several trips. The last one was to Paris and then on to Normandy. It was terrific and we will do it again. The rebates have paid for our initial membership fee.

My husband and I have belonged to the now Vacation Inspirations for about 7 years. We have enjoyed many great vacations to include a wonderful trip to Floriday with our 3 children and then a much needed anniversary trip to Mexico. Vacation Inspirations has been very helpful in taking care of all the arrangements necessary for out travels - highly recommend.

My husband and I have belonged to Vacation Station, now Vacation Inspirations, for about five years. We were in Charleston on vacation and went to one of their meetings. We weren't sure, if we did the right thing by joining, but I can't say enough great things about them. They are very helpful with planning our trips. We have gone on several cruises, three amazing bus tours, trip to Myrtle Beach and other great vacations. Over the past couple of years Christina has been my agent. She gets me the best price on my trips, always gets back to me quickly with any questions I may have and makes the whole vacation planning hassle free. After our trips we simply fill out a quick rebate form and get hundreds of dollars back on our vacation. It's wonderful. I received a check today for $541.00 for a cruise we went on to Alaska we had gone on with friends. We paid the same price for our cruise as they did, but our stateroom was upgraded, free shuttle to the airport, on board credit and received this check in the mail, making our trip much less expensive.



Thank you Vacation Inspirations. Looking forward to many more enjoyable vacations.

we have been members for the past 5 years and have worked with Heidi to arrange both cruises (British Isles and Caribbean) and land tours (China and India). The services have been flawless from beginning to end and the rates beat anything we have experienced elsewhere previously. Member rewards are always received within the expected timeframe.

We signed up for Vacation Inspirations a year ago. This past spring, we cruised the Mediterranean with 4 other friends and the multiple bookings were handled expertly through our agent at Vacation Inspirations. We have since booked two more trips to Europe through Heidi Foundoukis, senior travel agent with VI, who has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable through the entire process. We recently received our first rebate check and as frequent travelers we expect to quickly recover the cost of our membership. So far, our experience with Vacation Inspirations has been everything we had hoped it would be and look forward to many exciting years of travel using this very beneficial service.

My husband and I have taken many trips using Vacation Inspirations. Jeanne Adams has been wonderful in arranging everything and saving us lots of money. Our trips have all been custom international trips which required much more than just booking a tour. Jeanne and Vacation Inspirations was always up to the job.

We've been a member for 2 years and they have been terrific! Christina has been awesome - patient and understands what you're looking for quickly. When we signed up in Savannah we thought "we may have been scammed by that cute kid that looked like our son!" We quickly realized we weren't and we haven't looked back. Took a great Cali trip last year and with the Vacation Inspirations savings and rebate we save almost $2,000. Even little trips have been great. Thank You!!!!

We ONLY use Vacation Inspirations for all our travel.

Best pricing with generous rebates and very competent travel advisers who work hard for the best deals and promptly respond.

Truly a "first class" operation.

We have been members of Vacation Inspirations for a few years, but just recently began using the service. I regret that I didn't use it sooner. I have saved so much on just the two trips that I have booked in the last 6 months. They have been wonderful. I worked with Christina on our Disney trip as well as our Dominican Republic trip. She was very helpful, thorough and knowledgable. She went above and beyond in assisting me. She called the hotel in the DR to get my questions answered. Moving forward this will be my first call when planning a trip.

We have been members of Vacation Inspirations, (used to be The Vacation Station) for many years. We have taken so many vacations and cruises booked through their travel agents, as well as hotel rooms and airfares. We just returned from a seventeen day trip to Europe, and our rebate will be $1500. We have made back our initial investment many times over. We have taken trips to Alaska, the Canadian Rockies, and Europe that have saved us over $6000. Thier travel agents book our rooms, airfares, rental cars, transfers, etc. and make it so easy to travel. I would recommend this travel agency to anyone.

My husband and I are planning our third Viking cruise with Vacation Inspirations agent Rose. She and the rest of the staff have always worked hard for us, and always seem to get really solid rates. This trip we are traveling to the Danube River during Thanksgiving and she was able to get us a Veranda stateroom for the price of a standard room. We have no complaints. We also did a Hotweek once and that was more than decent.

I will add to the reviews and say vacation inspirations has delivered about as well as we could have expected them too. You get real people on the phone that actually know travel and we are pleased with the rates. Love the office location on the Riverwalk too we have stopped by a couple times with questions as we are always looking for an excuse to go downtown.

Vacation Inspirations booked a dream vacation to Maui and Kaui. The resort in Maui was outstanding and worth every penny. The Hotel in Kaui was central and easy to get to other parts of the island. Everything was booked exactly to my specifications and the trip went exactly as planned. It was a trip of a lifetime, the price was comparable to the vacation planned. All in all, I was very pleased with the entire experience. I look forward to the next trip through Vacation Inspirations.

Been with Vacation Inspirations for almost 2 years, we really are pleased. No tolerance for travel websites or popups so now we always call the agents. They know the River cruise players very well, always have the latest offers and insider packages from Viking and Avalon. We also did Guatemala with them last year and all their lodging picks were spot on. Did a Hotweek once, not bad. Overall we are happy with the value for our buy in.

Overall

No complaints with Vacation Inspirations, the in house agents all definitely seem to know the International market and it's tour providers very well. Since joining we have gone through them for Danube river with Avalon and Glacier Bay with Princess both were stellar and they had some good picks among the variances in itinerary
